* In ''[[VideoGame/{{MOTHER|1}} MOTHER/Earthbound Beginnings]]'', the character name screen would prevent you from giving characters the names used by locations, important [=NPCs=], or enemies, such as "Duncan", "Mary", "Wally", or the name of the last boss, although this could be bypassed by entering the name with a different capitalization.

** In "The Dad Who Knew Too Little", Homer gives Lisa a personalized video for her birthday, and it with his voice filling in the information. It greatly upsets Lisa because it shows that Homer clearly doesn't know anything about her.her, which includes saying that her favorite food is [=McNuggets=] ([[CaptainObvious she's a vegetarian]]) and that Maggie is her best friend (even though the "best friend" in the video is clearly an adult male).

** In VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire, one rival is always May or Brendan depending on the gender you chose for yourself, and the other is always Wally. In VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite, your rivals are always Bianca and Cheren. In PokemonXandY, you get to rename your opposite-gender rival, but your other friends are always Tierno, Trevor, and Shauna.

** [[spoiler: The big twist (which you discover on either the Pacifist or No Mercy routes) is that "the Fallen Child" and the child you play as are two different (but related) characters. The player character's ''real'' name is Frisk. And the one you named? They were the First Child, Asriel's childhood friend, and [[GreaterScopeVillain the instigator of nearly every bad thing that happened in the game's backstory]] [[YouBastard (though they might have had help from you, the player)]]. If you notice carefully, only Flowey ever addresses you by name, and that's because he's what's left of Asriel, thinking that Frisk and the Fallen Child are one and the same (and on at least some routes, [[DemonicPossession he's not wrong]]).]]

That way, even if you simply stumbled upon Frisk's real name by accident, the game doesn't spoil the plot twist above. Likewise, naming the Fallen Child "Chara" (which is implied to be their CanonName) prevents you from resetting your save file until the ending.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' plays around with this like it does so many other tropes. The game starts out by asking the player to "Name the fallen child." Unlike some examples, the game ''[[DeveloperForesight will]]'' catch you if you try to use a canon character's name, usually with a quote from said character saying you can't use it [[FunnyMoments (Papyrus says he'll allow it, though)]].
