** "Hawkeye" Gough is completely blind. (Granted, it ''used'' to be unironic before he lost his sight).
** Also "Mild-Mannered" Pate from ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'', who is revealed to be a deceiving and greedy man who murders people for their loot. Though he does seem to ''act'' mild-mannered in spite of this, so the nickname may or may not be ironic.
