* The title character of ''Manga/SoulEater'' [[DownplayedTrope did make up the "Eater" part as a code name]], but his first name really ''is'' "Soul". Though in his case, the Soul was meant as a ''musical'' allusion[[note]]He comes from a family of musicians.[[/note]] rather than a supernatural one. Meanwhile, the immortal werewolf had never had a name in his life until he was sprung from prison with help form Medusa. He's basically told "He's free," and (being somewhat simple-minded) he ran with it, naming himself "Free". And yes, Death the Kid's legal name really is Death the Kid. Although by the end of the manga [[spoiler:Death dies, and Kid replaces him, so he might be known simply as Death later on.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/KaoTheKangaroo Kao The Kangaroo: Round 2]]'': Everyone refers to the animal hunter as just "Hunter" with capital H.
