* All Pokémon games in the main series allow you to name yourself (or, if you don't feel like coming up with your own, choose from a list of default choices) and nickname your catches. (Trades can't be renamed.)

* All Pokémon games in the main series allow you to name yourself (or, if you don't feel like coming up with your own, choose from a list of default choices) and nickname your catches. (Trades can't be renamed.)) Usually, you can only name Pokémon either immediately after catching them or by visiting a "name rater" NPC. Your inability to rename party members on your own doesn't make much sense in and of itself, but provides an excuse for why you can't rename a traded mon--the "rater" will insist that its name is perfect and refuse to help you change it.



** As with the above main series and ''Mystery Dungeon'' examples, ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' allows you to nickname your Pokémon. Unlike above examples however, you can nickname your Pokémon at anytime without requirements nor restrictions. Naturally, ''Pokémon Go'' players picked up on the dirty name stuff and [[ClusterFBomb swear words]] as soon as the appraisal feature, with comments on a Pokemon's size, was released.

In case your were wondering why other trainers' mon-nicknames aren't visible in gyms... well...

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper'', you can name the Keeper (default name Tyro) to whatever you want, whenever you want. Since most of the game is about keeping the records of the past ''Final Fantasy'' games like those listed above, the Keeper usually doesn't even get mentioned while the story of these games are recapped but with new fights in this mobile game. In 2018, the game added a Record Dungeons section with an original story, turning the Keeper into a bit of an AudienceSurrogate and fanboy of the games' stories.

* The arcade versions of ''VideoGame/{{Wardner}}'' actually asks for the player's name first in the form of a three-letter initial, and then inserts it into several points of the game where there is dialog. It's one of the few arcade games known for that feature, and said feature is prone to being abused (as LetsPlay/{{Mentski}} pointed out- see Web Video below).

* And some games with dubbed voice acting will also call you by a generalized name- such as "Leader" or by nicknames- "Pretty boy" "Girly" "Sweetums" etc.

Can result in AwesomeMcCoolName or UnfortunateNames, as seen above. Often used in tandem with MyNameIsQuestionMarks if the character appears before a name for them is given. Compare CanonName, which gives a name to a character with no default name. MeaningfulName can be worked in while fitting any of the above. See ArtifactAlias for characters who continue the selected name even after their true name has become known.

Added DiffLines:

* The first three ''VideoGame/{{Deception}}'' games all allow you to name their protagonists, but only ''Kagero'' and ''Deception III'' have [[CanonName default names]] for them. The Zemekian prince of the original game is named entirely at your whim, although his brother is named Yurias.

* The player characters in the ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' series all seem to have default names, but for some cases like Pete their fanon names are more widely known (for him it's Jack). You don't have to use the default names (that's assuming you knew them), which is where this trope comes into play.
** Interestingly, ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonIslandOfHappiness Island of Happiness]]'' and ''Sunshine Islands'' only allow 6-character names for their farmers, Mark and Chelsea. Chelsea is one letter too long to fit.
** In ''Puzzle De Harvest Moon'' the previously named characters were given names with [[SpellMyNameWithAnS odd spelling]].

* Ironically, while ''Franchise/TheSims'' games have voice acting, they're SpeakingSimlish, so players have no problems changing the names of their Sims.

* 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.
