* Author GordonKorman used "G. Gavin Gunhold" as a running alias across multiple books. Gavin takes on a life of his own more than usual in [[MacdonaldHall ''The Wizzle War'']] (as the world's most perfect, absentee student) and ''A Semester In The Life Of A Garbage Bag'' (an obscure Canadian poet) in particular.

** The eponymous Chuck Bartowski introduced the idea of Charles Carmichael ([[MartyStu the successful version of himself]]) in the third episode, "Chuck vs. the Tango". Over the course of season two, it becomes so associated with him that it ends up as one of his operating aliases. In one episode people are congratulating him as both "Bartowski" and "Carmichael" as he walks through a crowd.
