** The headmistress of Riften's Honorhall Orphanage goes by the name of "Grelod the Kind". Far from being kind, she's one of the absolute cruelest people of all of Skyrim, and her sobriquet is meant as an ironic insult by the townspeople of Riften. She's so mean that should she die, not only do the orphans she ostensibly cares for all cheer her death, but it is not regarded as a crime, no matter the means of death.

She was so wicked that the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] planned to off her, at least until you do it yourself.

* In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', the main character's code name "Joker" reflected his unique power and his status as the team's trump card. In ''Fanfic/TheEvilQueen'', Akira is given the code name because Karasu notes that it's the perfect cover for a serious and brooding individual like him.

* One of Mordecai and Rigby's coworkers in ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' is a fat little guy called Muscle Man. This is a special case because he likes to work out (and at one point turns to protein supplements as a comfort food), his daily tasks are very physically taxing, and he really is quite strong. Eventually it's revealed that he was once a bodybuilder, and that his old nickname stuck with him after he got out of shape.
** In the episode "Power Tower" Mordecai says he always assumed the nickname was meant to be ironic, before Muscle Man reveals that once upon a time he was legit ripped.

* Ruki of ''Manga/ComicGirls'' is flat-chested, but her editor imposed the PenName of "Big Boobies Himeko" on her as she's writing {{josei}} manga. In a slightly {{deconstructed|trope}} case, this is why she has ACupAngst.
