* [[PerkyGoth Uriel Chuluun]] and [[ProfessionalKiller Kira Thanos ]] are the primary source of this (among [[LesYay other]] [[ShipTease things]]) in ''VideoGame/{{Rift}}''. First, Uriel calls Kira "Kay Tee" (much to her [[EmbarrassingNickame dismay]]). Kira snarkily calls Uriel "Princess" (which is [[RebelliousPrincess technically true]]) in response (much to her ''delight''). And the tie-in story "Drowning in Snow" has Kira referring to the Mighty Leap ability (a racial trait attributable to being [[ElementalEmbodiment part air elemental]]) as "Bahmi Bounce."

Brynden Tully even claims, "People have been calling me 'Blackfish' for so long they don't remember my real name." Ser Davos Seaworth is known as "The Onion Knight". Originally, the name was meant as an insult by the nobility who despised him because he was a commoner who bought his knighthood with a pack of onions and salt fish. However, Davos took the name with pride and made the Onion his family sigil. Brienne of Tarth is known as Brienne the Beauty, an IronicNickname. Steelshanks is named so after the steel greaves over his legs.

However, it also gave him a really bad reputation because he was a member of the Kingsguard, who were supposed to ''defend'' the king with their lives.
