->'''Applejack:''' Ah, don't look like that, Sugarcube.
->'''Black [=Gryph0n=]:''' She thinks everyone's name is "Sugarcube." I think that's her excuse for forgetting their names.
->''Imitating Applejack'' "Sugarcube, meet, uh, Sugarcube!"

* ''Manga/ChibiMarukoChan'': The main character Momoko Sakura's nickname is Maruko. She is almost always called by this name or a variant of it in place of her actual first name (i.e. in a situation in Japanese culture where the use of the first name would be called for).

** Also Lelouch is dubbed 'Lulu' by Shirley and Milly. What's more, among the closer members of her family (and LoveInterest Suzaku) Euphemia goes by 'Euphy'.
* Hachiroto 'Hachimaki' Hoshino in ''Anime/{{Planetes}}''. Later, it was revealed that his mentor gave everybody (except Hakim) nicknames; Edel was Hourglass and Tanabe was Little Lady at first, then Angel.

* In ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', the [[DudeLooksLikeALady unfortunate Yuki]] Sohma gets the nickname of Yun Yun (which he points out is ''longer than his actual name.'' This does nothing to dissuade the nickname-giver, Manabe, however). Another student council member is branded with the Chibi (or Chibisuke).

** The manga has many, most famously Straw Hat Luffy, since most enemies casually call him Straw Hat. This may be more NomDeGuerre, though, especially the ones in the form of TheMagnificent.
** Outside of titles, plenty of characters are given genuine nicknames, many by Luffy. This is most notable in Dressrosa, where we get Doffy (an AffectionateNickname for Donquixote Doflamingo used by his Executives), Cabbage (Cavendish), Traffy (Trafalgar Law), and plenty more. Naturally, all of these have become {{Fan Nickname}}s.

** Several characters start calling Saki "Rinshan-san" after she demonstrates her uncanny ability to win with Rinshan Kaihou.[[note]]Rinshan Kaihou is when you acquire all 4 copies of any one tile, then draw the winning tile ''immediately'' after you complete the set - a purely LuckBasedMission.[[/note]]
** Momo typically refers to Nodoka as "[[GagBoobs Boobs-san]]", and has a few other nicknames for certain characters in her internal monologues, such as calling Tomoki "Ryuumonbuchi's glasses girl". Momo herself is often known as "Stealth Momo".

* ''Manga/LuckyStar'' plays with this one. Tsukasa calls Konata and Miyuki Kona-chan and Yuki-chan respectively. (Fairly normal.) Also, Konata tries to come up with a nickname for Kagami. Tsukasa mentions that an alternate reading for Kagami's name kanji is "Kyou", so Konata calls Kagami "Kyou-chan". That embarrasses/pisses of Kagami, and when Konata asks what she can call Kagami, Kagami's suggestion is to call her Kagami-sama (roughly translates as "The Great Kagami"). [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Naturally, this backfires when Konata actually does it.]] Kagami is so embarrassed that she asks Konata to stop, ''please, for the love of God''.

* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' fans are fond of making use of [[TheNicknamer Izaya's]] infantilizing nicknames for his "friends" -- therefore, Shizuo and Kadota find themselves called Shizu-chan (or its loose translation Shizzy) and Dotachin quite a bit outside of the series proper.

* ''Anime/RurouniKenshin'' - Perhaps as a nod to the author's own liking for TheShinsengumi, Yahiko posits "Kenshin-gumi" for Kenshin's TrueCompanions very early in the series.

* In ''FanFic/Eternity'' Enterprise was sold to Japanese in the 50s and renamed as Yonaga, the Long Night. For her long service in JMSDF (retiring in the 2000s), the Japanese gave her the titular nickname "Eien".

* ''Manga/{{Aruosumente}}'':
** Legna is nicknamed Angel by his peers; it also doubles as a MeaningfulName, and is based on the angel wings Oracles wear on the backs of their cloaks of office. Legna's not particularly happy about the nickname, but doesn't protest too much either.
** Dante is nicknamed "Black Chariot" because of his deeds -- killing 300 enemy soldiers in one battle -- ten years ago.

* In ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient'', everybody refers to [[TheHero Jordy Volder]] as Jojo. Justified, since his guardian Asbeth is hiding his royal lineage until the time is right to rally up the White Valley's rebels.

** Lois usually calls Clark "Smallville", but "[[EmbarrassingNickname Clarky]]" on rare occasions. Lois almost always just call Chloe "cous" (as in, "cousin") or "Chlo"[[note]]Many FanFic writers picked this up to use as an AffectionateNickname from whoever they are pairing Chloe with[[/note]], or more rarely "Goldilocks". She once calls Jimmy "Baby Bear", and he is not happy.
