** Subverted though, as his brother says a few pages later that he doesn't ''have'' a name. Pup is presumably something one of the boys chose just so he wouldn't be referred to as "brother" in place of a name.

* In an AbridgedSeries of ''Anime/{{Trigun}}'', Knives is voiced as though he was [[AustinPowers Dr. Evil]], and his plans have names that are sexual in nature, and he never gets it. One plan is to steal a lumber from a place before dawn, and he calls it "Operation [[RagingStiffie Morning Wood]]".

* [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Remilia]] [[ImmortalImmaturity Scarlet]] of ''VideoGame/TouhouProject'': in a world where CallingYourAttacks is the norm, Remilia can't quite seem to get the hang of the whole "naming" thing. This results in spellcard names that range from the cliched melodramatic trying-too-hard-to-be-BadAss (like ''Midnight Sign [Devil King Cradle]'' or ''Destiny [Miserable Fate]'') to the truly '''baffling''' (like ''Demon [Remilia Stretch]'' or the infamous ''Scarlet Devil [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment [Scarlet Devil]]]'').

* A running gag in the ''XY'' series of ''Anime/Pokémon'' is that Clemont, Ash's BunglingInventor friend, can only give his inventions names that amount to ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. His younger sister Bonnie gives him no end of grief, but [[HypocriticalHumour ironically]]] isn't that much better. She calls her newly-found Pokémmon "Squishy" because of its squishy body and calls Greninja's SuperMode Ash-Greninja because it resembles Ash.

** There's also an omake about how the code names were chosen. The ones chosen by Mustang were completely sensible - Elizabeth, Kate... Riza had the honour of choosing Breda's name. "Bre-ko". (-ko is used for feminine names.) The English version went with "Bredette" to give the same connotation.
