* Frequently seen in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series. Quite a few of the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters are ex-Forces, Old Etonians, or were up at Oxford together (or all three); and many are titled (i.e., peers). They all tend to use [[LastNameBasis surnames or titles]] in addressing or speaking of one another (and some minor academic characters appear [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep only by position-title]]); when they don't, they use school-era [[InSeriesNickname nicknames]] [[AffectionateNickname affectionate]] [[IronicNickname or]] [[EmbarrassingNickname otherwise]].
--> '''The Duke of Taunton to Teddy Gates, on the subject, in ''Literature/{{Evensong}}'':''' " the Archdeacon's always 'Flops' to ''me.'' Has been since we were at the same prepper. Glib, facile, and mean with his tuck, was Flops.... Nobby was called as such at school, and at University, by the generality, the groundlings and small deer; 'Tigger' was exclusive to those of us who were on the first XI with him. And I knew Fr Pryor as a dangerous Harrow bowler well before he ever went up to Keble and then became a clergyman: of ''course'' he was 'Googly' Pryor to us, who faced him in the Schools Match. People acquire and outgrow and shed nicknames, Tedders and don't think I don't know you were called 'Banging' Gates at school, for all too evident reasons....'

* In ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' everyone refers to King Julien XIII's evil uncle King Julien XII as "Uncle King Julien" to the point when Julien XIII reads an official document that properly addresses him as "King Julien XII", he doesn't recognize who that is right away.

* Creator/KarlMay lived by this trope, for instance in the stories set in the American West, most of the ''Westmänner'' (Westmen) go by their colourful nicknames, not their real ones, for instance [[AuthorAvatar Old Shatterhand]], Old Surehand, Old Firehand, Old Death, Old Wabble, Gunstick-Uncle, Earless and Tante Droll ("Aunt Droll").

An In-Series Nickname is not a FanNickname; although it can frequently be used as such. Instead, it is a nickname specifically given in-series, not even by the producers alone. It is always regarded as canon. Often given out by TheNicknamer. If done enough this may overlap with AccidentalMisnaming or OnlyKnownByTheirNickname.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has a few.
** Alphonse calls Edward "brother" more often than his actual name.
** Roy Mustang refers to his hand-selected subordinates as chess pieces - the Queen, the Knight, the Bishop, the Rook, and the Pawn. He, of course, is the King. They're really code names, but they're also {{affectionate nickname}}s as these people are his FamilyOfChoice.
** Soldiers serving at the northern fortress of Briggs are almost universally known as the Briggs Bears.



* ''FanFic/HarmonyTheory'': Blaze for Trail Blazer.

* In the Fanfic/ElementalChessTrilogy, Roy Mustang's wife is variously known as Ladyhawk, the Queen, or Lady Mustang, depending on who's talking. Her personal bodyguards are known as "the queen's men."
* Lydia, in the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series, is identified as "Your Ladyship" by the members of Prince Vince's court, even before [[spoiler:he gives her the courtesy title of "Princess of Beetles"]], while her husband just sometimes calls her "Wifey-Babes." The Fairy Godfather is occasionally called "F.G." for short, and Hugo frequently shortens Lady Delphine's name to "Lady."
* In ''Fanfic/SayItThrice'', [[Film/{{Beetlejuice}} Betelgeuse]] calls his MoralityPet "Lyds" and Babes." He also calls [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Danny]] "Danny boy," and sometimes calls Juno "June-bug."



* In ''Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea'', "Ponyo" is just a nickname Sousuke gives to the titular fish. Her real name is Brunhilde. Her dad is none too happy about the way she prefers "Ponyo" over "Brunhilde..."

** "Hotbreath" was played by Florence Halop, who replaced Selma Diamond on ''NightCourt'' about forty years later. (You wouldn't think it to look at her on ''Night Court'', but she could really sell the sexy voice on radio when she was in her twenties.)
