* In ''WebVideo/ZeroPunctuation'', Yahtzee frequently has fun abusing the character naming function in every game that has one, and thus gets very annoyed (or creative with spelling) when his more profane suggestions are disallowed. Notable examples inclide:
** [[Franchise/MassEffect Titty Shephard]]
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass Fagballs]]
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Fuck Me]]
** [[VideoGame/NieR Twattycakes]]
** [[VideoGame/TabulaRasa Gareth Gobulcoque]]
** Averted in ''VideoGame/SimCity'', though, when the game flat-out refused to let him name his new town "Dogbollock".

* Played for dark laughs in ''Literature/TheWorldOfIceAndFire'': the book, meant to be an InUniverse encyclopedia is dedicated to [[spoiler:King Tommen]] but if you look closely, you can see that the name was clearly written over [[spoiler:"Robert" and then "Joffrey"]]. Given how the chapter on [[spoiler:Robert's reign]] is [[DatedHistory written in the present tense]], it's also an indication of just how long the book took to write and what a [[AnyoneCanDie turbulent period]] it has been in the interim.

** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal]]'' have a widespread case of the ''accidental'' abuse type. The player names the rival by giving his name to a police officer, the problem is that you have fought him at this point, where he has the temporary name ???. [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/960099-pokemon-heartgold-version/52854535 Quite a few people]] gave the "right" answer and wound up stuck with a rival called ???. The remakes fix this, as the rival now has the name "Passerby Boy" (which is too long to fit in the name box and is more obviously a description) during the first battle with him.
