* The player characters in the ''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.

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

* The EA Sports ''VideoGame/{{NHL|Hockey}}'' series has tried different approaches to this in its ''Create a Player'' feature. ''NHL 2002'' made an attempt to actually use the name entered, whereas ''NHL 07'' asks you to select the player's surname from a huge pre-defined list, and this selection is then used in all commentary. This could have been driven by EA's decision to switch from creating a version specifically for the PC (''NHL 2002''), to simply porting over the PS2 version to PC (''NHL 06'' onwards).

* The UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame ''Hyper VideoGame/BishiBashi Champ'' allows you to choose from a list of prerecorded "wacky" nicknames, although this feature is removed from its PlayStation port on the compilation ''Bishi Bashi Special'' (where you're always "PRAYAAAAH WAN")

** [[spoiler: If you name the Fallen Child after Frisk, this activates Hard Mode, which stops the game right after you finish Toriel's boss battle. 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.]]

* The VisualNovel/FantasiaOtomeGameSeries

to:

* The VisualNovel/FantasiaOtomeGameSeriesfirst game in the ''VisualNovel/FantasiaOtomeGameSeries'' lets you name the main character even though her canon name -- which is used in the second game that incidentally ''doesn't'' give you the option to name its new main character -- is Cheryl.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/MagicalDiary'' does this, with an added joke of listing the main character's default name as MarySue.
* The first choice of ''[[https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=37091 Senpai, Please Look At Me!]]'' asks you to name the female protagonist. Typical so far, but it gets ''really'' interesting if you trigger the hidden plot event of [[spoiler:Senpai [[BreakingTheFourthWall repeatedly crashing and rewriting the game]]: he eventually glitches the game to such an extent that it skips over the name-choosing option entirely and displays the protagonist's name as a default variable only, which causes him to realize that he's gone too far. In addition, if you choose to hear him out after this, he confesses that his [[NoNameGiven lack of an actual name]] bothers him because it indicates that he's a FlatCharacter and asks the player to give him one with the same method they did for the female protagonist.]]

** [[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 major character in the game's backstory (And GreaterScopeVillain of the Genocide path, [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential alongside you]]). 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 the No Mercy route, [[DemonicPossession he's not entirely wrong]]).]]
