*** Other characters have their own nickname for you. Like "General" for members of the militia you can become the leader of, or "Blue" from your Vault suit. If you join LaResistence, you select from a short list of codenames.

** Completely averted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', which introduces voice acting into the series and Link is referenced by name.

** Completely averted Averted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' with Link, which introduces introduced voice acting into the series and Link is referenced by name.name. And indeed if you get Epona you can't rename ''her'', but you can name any other horse you come across so you could make any of them "Epona" (Or whatever else you may like), even with the Royal Family's special white steed or the rare black horse with a wild red mane based on Ganondorf.

* In ''VideoGame/StardewValley'', the first thing you do is name your player character, your farm, and your favorite thing (much like the MOTHER series). Your "favorite thing" only comes up in a dialogue that occurs after you find and eat a Stardrop: "It's strange, but the taste reminds you of [favorite thing]." If your "favorite thing" is "ConcernedApe" (the pen-name of the developer) the game thanks you during the Stardrop dialogue.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' had the option to name your character, which would appear in conversation with [=NPCs=] in text form, but would conveniently be left out in the audio of the NPC speaking.

** This actually caused some interesting problems in the German translation. The translators apparently didn't realise German has gender-specific words for hero ("Held" for male, "Heldin" for female)... meaning that, since the voice acting lacks variety, your character will ALWAYS be addressed as female.

** ''Videogame/FireEmblemNewMysteryOfTheEmblem'' gives us the Avatar, whose CanonName is Kris. He/she is like the tactician but can be controlled as a playable character and has his/her own unique (customizable) portait.

* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Blazing Sword]]'' has the player assume the role of a tactician in the game who can be renamed. This creates a funny moment if the player choose to name their character "Lyn", since the first character the player meets (Lyn) will always comment that the player's name is odd-sounding.
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia New Mystery Of The Emblem]]'' gives us the Avatar, whose CanonName is Kris. He/she is like the tactician but can be controlled as a playable character and has his/her own unique (customizable) portait.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' also has an Avatar, CanonName Robin, who serves as the tactician ''and'' a highly customizable playable character, but also plays a much greater role in the story.
*** And like with ''Blazing Sword'' above, you can name yourself after canon characters like Marth or Chrom and no one (including the ''actual'' Marth and Chrom) will pick up your shenanigans.

** Funnily enough, the only name you ''cannot'' give your Bloody-Faced Volleyball familiar is [[CastAway "Wilson."]] And if you try, it gets renamed to another brand of volleyball.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Clawhauser proudly shows off "Dancing with Gazelle" app which shows him "dancing" alongside the star.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' usually lets you rename the OriginalGeneration protagonist, and sometimes his/her mech as well (and in some cases, each and every weapon of the damn thing). The voiced installments have an interesting way of doing it: the dialogue ''will'' call the protagonist by name regularly, but only if you keep their CanonName. If you rename them Faggy Mcdoodoo or anything else, then those lines go unused and HeyYou is in full effect (unless they have an InSeriesNickname or codename, then the game will use that instead).
