* The name Petal from ''Literature/WarriorCats'' is usually for a soft-spoken and kind she-cat. But as for Petal from ''Dawn Of The Clans''...as Thunder says: "Which cat named her 'Petal'? There's nothing soft about her!" And the character Quick Water ''hates'' water, much to the amusement of Turtle Tail.

* Glory from ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' has a noble sounding name. She was disliked by the dragons who her named her due to [[FantasticRacism being a RainWing]] and being a spare who was only taken in because they lost the right egg for TheProphecy.

* The Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia did not represent the mainstream American right, but rather fringe white supremacist groups. The fallout from the rally and subsequent terrorist attack only served to create huge fissures in the nation's right wing, dividing it between Donald Trump's nationalist wing and the more mainstream neo-conservative GOP. In the end, it was the anti-Trump left wing who was reunited and re-energized by the attack after several slow months, rapidly organizing vigils, protests, and anti-white supremacy campaigns in response. As Somerville, Massachusetts mayor Joe Curtatone put it:
--> Their goal was to unite the right. Instead they have united the left.

** The Prophet of Truth's entire base of power stems from a lie which could break the Covenant apart and has caused billions of deaths, alien and human. He himself was well-aware of this, and named himself Truth after his ascension [[MeaningfulRename to remind himself of all the lies he would have to tell to keep the Covenant and his own power together]].

* "Massacre Soldier" Killer from ''Manga/OnePiece'' seems to have an ironic name (if it's his real name, of course) and epitaph. Among all the Eleven Supernovas/ Worst Generation, he's the one of the OnlySaneMan and anything but AxCrazy. He's the one who has to keep his captain, Eustass Kid, calm.
