Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/NightmareFactory'', the Game Master, Phirre, purposely calls Kreyul “Crayon”. His calling Emai “Princess”, however, has borderline TermsOfEndangerment vibes at times, but mostly still comes off as this.

* The ''Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge'' side story ''Agents Acquired has a brief example of this in which [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Sera]], whose letter to Varric is said to have inspired the story, concludes her message with "Say hello to wossername." [[spoiler:This is a reference to [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Bethany Hawke]], who in the main stories of the series had joined the Inquisition, and toward whom Sera initially had some animosity. That she's sending an even remotely friendly greeting is a sign that she has mellowed.]]



** Max Shreck is no better. Upon realizing that his speech for the tree-lighting ceremony is still up in his office, he pulls his son aside and whispers: "Forgot my speech. Remind me to take it out on...[[BuffySpeak What's-Her-Name]]." Not only had Max referred to Selina Kyle by name ''just a few minutes earlier'', but Selina isn't even around to take offense at this insult; [[EvilIsPetty Max is using it for no other reason than to reinforce the fact that he's superior to her]].

** Taken UpToEleven with the Red Triangle Circus Gang: not only does the Penguin never call any of them by name (they don't seem to have names, [[AllThereInTheManual except in the end credits]]), but he never, ''ever'' uses "you" when talking to any of them; he tends to address them collectively, or in the imperative voice, as in "Where's my list? Bring me the names!" The closest he gets to acknowledging their humanity is referring to the entire gang, himself included, as [[TheRoyalWe "we."]] ("[W]e will snatch them, carry them into the sewer, and toss them into a deep, dark, watery grave!") By contrast, [[BatmanAndRobin Mr. Freeze]] called at least one of his henchmen by name; [[Film/{{Batman}} the Joker]], no less than ''three''. And even [[BatmanForever Two-Face]] affectionately addressed his nameless thugs as "boys."

There are many, ''many'' variations, but the general gist of Hey You is that someone deliberately calls another that deserves respect by first name, an insult, wrong gender, [[{{Honorifics}} wrong honorifics]], [[JapanesePronouns wrong pronouns]], [[AccidentalMisnaming the wrong name altogether]], or just plain ''"you"''.

** Honestly, this trope is present in all ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games. Characters rarely seem to address eachother by name on a a regular basis. In [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice the third]], we have "Fake Hero" Almaz, "That Delinquent" Raspberyl, and "The Princess" Sapphire as Mao calls them and they seem to address eachother as. And in [[VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten the fourth]], everybody seems to have nicknames for everybody. "Mr. Vampire/Weirdo", "Lass", "Whelp/Rascal", "Thief Angel", "Warden", etc. Disgaea seems to make it a point to showcase whenever characters acknowledge eachother by name as being significant.

* Slight subversion in ComicBook/JusticeSocietyofAmerica: While evil, Todd referred to Alan as 'Father'; after becoming good again, he switched to the more casual 'Dad.'

* Nanjiroh Echizen also refers to his son Ryoma as "boy" sometimes in ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis''. Additional, Momoshiro and Kaidoh call each other "Mamushi" and "moron", and Kamio also refers to Kaidoh as "mamushi". [[spoiler: Until Kaidoh becomes the Seigaku captain in his third year; Momoshiro calls him by his surname, since he's implied to be his sub-captain.]]

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'': A jealous Daisuke calls Takeru 'omae', prompting Hikari to angrily reply, "It's not ''you'', it's ''Takeru-kun''."
** The joke here, for those who don't know the nuances of Japanese language, is that Daisuke actually added the honorific "-kun" to the "omae" part. That's right, he just said "you" as Takeru's ''name''.
** The dub rendered this as "Hey, buddy!" for that particular line, and then continued the theme with Davis calling TK [[AccidentalMisnaming TO, TS, TA]], etc.

** During his time as the Digimon Kaiser, Ken Ichijouji dislikes being called "Ken-chan" by Wormmon whom he views as a slave/[[{{Pun}} worm]] and demands him to be called "Digimon Kaiser". Early on, this is hint that Wormmon is actually Ken's Partner Digimon and it would later serve as sign of Wormmon's loyalty to Ken's true self.
* ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'': In ''Part 4: Loss'', at the time the Partner Digimon [[spoiler:have lost their memories]], [[ShrinkingViolet Gabumon]] calls Yamato "Yamato-kun", thus Taichi gets offended when Gabumon doesn't address him with a honorific.



** Syaoran calls Sakura anything but her name (usually preferring just "Hey You" or ''Omae'' in japanese, which is a rude form of you.) In some dubs where this is LostInTranslation, when he ''absolutely'' has to use her name, he goes for LastNameBasis, while in the ''Cardcaptors'' English [[{{Macekre}} "dub"]] this point is lost altogether. [[spoiler:He doesn't use her real name until the episode they're locked in an elevator together and Sakura falls through a mysterious hole. He's so shocked that he yells for her, [[FirstNameBasis calling her "Sakura,"]] and when she floats back up by using the Float card, she acknowledges the change with happiness.]] Because of this, Sakura feels obliged to refer to Syaoran formally as "Li-kun". [[spoiler:The moment he finally refers to her by first name, she asks if she can do the same, leading her to gleefully call out "Syaoran-kun" any moment she can.]]
