* ''AssassinsCreed2016'': "Pioneer" was initially a reference to how Callum was helping the Templars explore Aguilar's memories and find the Apple of Eden, and to a lesser extent, for ordering steak when the Madrid facility guards recommended chicken. [[spoiler: After Callum is inducted into the Brotherhood by Mary's hologram,]] it has clearly become more of a friendly nickname.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'': Annabeth frequently calls Percy "Seaweed Brain", after his godly father's domain, and Percy's tendency to act recklessly. It starts out as an insult, but it's lost a lot of the sting by the fourth or fifth time they save each others' lives. It is a clear InsultOfEndearment by the end of ''The Last Olympian''. In fact when Thalia uses it, Percy is angry at the though of anyone but Annabeth using it.

* On ''Series/{{Glee}}'', Sue, the vicious queen of insults, first starts calling Kurt Porcelain as a way to mock his girlishness, but it eventually becomes a term of endearment, as through the seasons it becomes clear that Sure started respecting Kurt deeply.

** Ayla, in the Companions guild, calls Farkas "icebrain." According to Farkas, this is friendly teasing.



* It's really sweet when you find out in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' that Toph still called Aang the previous series' nickname of "Twinkletoes", even when they were in their forties. While it's definitely meant as endearing Aang finds it [[EmbarrassingNickname annoying]].

** The aya-aye spirit, after warming up to Wan after he saves Mula, calls him "Stinky", thinking it's a better one than his real name. Whenever we hear him call Wan "Stinky" after that, he sounds sincere.

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' kind of uses this: [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Cotton]] always referred to Peggy as "Hank's Wife," which demonstrated both his sexism and his general dislike for her. However, in later seasons he even uses it when he's trying to be nice. It's worth noting that his CharacterDevelopment also includes indications that he's at least a little bit senile.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', when the Great Gazoo would call Fred and Barney "dumb-dumbs", he was usually invoking this Trope, although at first, it was because they annoyed him.

* ''{{ComicBook/Sabretooth}}'' refers to Monet as "frail" a few times in ''ComicBook/UncannyXMen2015''. Creed was born in the 1800s, and back then the term surfaced as a way to refer to women -being seen as the weaker, more fragile, sex. Monet isn't the only women Creed refers to as such, but we see him do it more with her. When he first calls her frail, she angrily tells him not to. But by the next chapter, she seems to no longer mind, as he refers to her as frail very casually, without any protest from her. At one point, she turns it around and calls him frail, while telling him to step aside. Though not seen, Sabretooth says that Monet has insulting names she calls him.

* In the animated adaptations (1993 OVA and 2014 David Production TV Series) Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders, our three surviving heroes hugged each other with brotherly love at Cairo Airport as Polnaref leaves for Paris while Joseph and Jotaro fly back to Tokyo, resorting to this to fight back the tears welling in their eyes.
--> Polnaref: Goobye you wrinkled old coot, you live a long life you hear! And you, his cheapskate grandson; don't you dare forget about me!
--> Joseph: Let us meet again! That is if you don't already hate me by then, you stupid jackass!
--> Jotaro: I can't ever forget a clown like you even if I tried, you bastard. Take Care.

* In ''CoolRunnings'' when the captain of the Swiss team, Josef Grull, first meets the Jamaican Derice Bannock, he uses the name "Jamaica" for him as if he couldn't be bothered to learn his real name. By they end when they respect each other he says "Sehr gut (Very good), Jamaica. We'll see you in four years, ya?" And Derice shakes his hand and says "Yeah, man."
