* In Hungarian epic ''Toldi'' a general asks Toldi (the hero) on the field: "Hey, peasant! Which way leads to Buda?" Toldi is a noble and, as expected, takes offense at the general mistaking him for a commoner due to his clothing. He doesn't say a thing but answers by pointing to Buda ''[[BadAss with a long rake]]''. '''[[RatedMForManly One handed]]'''. The entire army goes "Holy shit, that guy's STRONG!"

* In the ''Series/{{MASH}}'' episode "Potter's Retirement", Hawkeye addresses Colonel Potter as "Sherman" while trying to convince him not to retire his command. While Potter is depicted as a Regular Army officer who wouldn't ordinarily tolerate such familiarity like his predecessor, Henry Blake, would, in this instance he's clearly touched rather than angered by it.

* ''Series/HaveGunWillTravel'' features, as the main character, the mysterious Paladin, a gunslinger based out of old San Francisco who puts forth an image of refinement and education at odds with his [[{{Badass}} violent profession]]. So, it's quite [[ValuesDissonance grating]] to the modern ear to hear him refer to the Chinese bellhop at his favorite hotel as "Hey, Boy"...especially since Hey Boy's real name was divulged in the show's first season! Still, Hey Boy seemed to embrace the odd moniker, going so far as to correct a stranger who once got his attention with "hey, you."

* In ''TheSimpsons'', Bart often calls his father "Homer" instead of "Dad". Probably a sign of how bratty Bart is, although Homer also usually refers to Bart as "the boy". It's actually a RunningGag that Homer is forever trying to get Bart to call him "Daddy," which never happens. (In one of the comics, an imposter is standing in for Bart, and Bart tells the impostor to remember to always say "Homer" instead of "Daddy".) The episode that flashbacked to Lisa's first word did a lot of jokes on it, too. One side effect is that, on the very rare occasion that Bart does call him Dad, it's usually very touching.

* In ''Manga/YonaOfTheDawn'', Zeno never uses anybody's name. He calls Yona "miss" (''musume-san''), Hak is "mister" (''nii-chan''), and Yun is "kid" (''bouzu''), while he calls Kija, Jaeha, and Shin-ah by their dragon titles. Fans speculate he does it to distance himself from them, [[spoiler:because his immortality means he'll outlive them]], but it might just be another bit of quirkiness.

When the first generation dragons parted, Abi begins to cry when Zeno calls him by name, because it makes him think of King Hiryuu.

* Jun Manjoume of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' gets upset when people don't call him "Manjoume-san" and frequently retorts with, at first, "Manjoume-san, da!" and eventually simply "San, da!" Since "sandaa" is how the English word 'thunder' is pronounced in Japanese, he earns the nickname "Manjoume Thunder" at North Academy for this insistence.



* This was one of Robin's main (and yet subtle) characteristics in ''OnePiece''. It was very rare that Robin would actually say the name of the person she is talking to or referring to in any dialogue, preferring to use their designations (such as "Navigator-san" for Nami). This was her defense mechanism to protect herself and keep things impersonal to anyone she meets. After she finds her place with the Straw Hats, she begins to call them by their names.

* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymhphogear'': Even after three seasons, Chris has never called anyone by their name except Finé who was the closest person to her (after her dead parents). Most of the time, she just calls everyone "you". To Tsubasa, she calls her "Senpai" from the finale of season 2 onwards, and to Hibiki, she calls her "baka/dumbass".
