* ''WesternAnimation/Cars3'': Jackson Storm refers to McQueen as "Champ", mocking the fact that Lightning is falling behind Storm's more high-tech generation.

* Similarly to the book (mentioned below), ''Film/FlightOfTheIntruder'' features "Razor" as an ironic nickname. While the book character gets the name due to his PornStache, the film character gets it from being a baby-faced EnsignNewbie who doesn't look old enough to shave. By the end of the film, his nickname is changed to ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Straight]]'' [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Razor]].

** There is also Harry's dog Mouse, who is rougly three-and-a-half feet at the shoulder and tips the scales at about 200 lbs. When Mouse was a puppy [[GiganticAdultsTinyBabies he fit in Harry's coat pocket]] so the name wasn't ironic at first, it just became that way.

* ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns Hong Kong'': Your sometime employer is a [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs Triad]] mid-level boss known as "Kindly" Cheng. "Kindly" is a complete hard-ass who manages to turn an overly ambitious underling into a gibbering wreck with a few words.

* Fat Charlie from Literature/AnansiBoys isn't fat at all, and he never was. He was a bit pudgy between age ten, when he was bedridden with illness for a month, and fourteen, when he started eating a little less and exercising a little more. However, since the name came from his father [[TricksterGod Anansi], it stuck.

** Brienne is known as Brienne the Beauty as the men consider her to be unattractive. Subverted or zig zagged depending on your point of view as of "Kissed by Fire", when she's revealed to be extremely good looking underneath all that armor, dirt, and sweat.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', {{invok|edTrope}}ing this trope is a common punishment for betraying the ThievesGuild. "Eagle-Eyed Pete" [[EyeScream was blinded]], while "Appendix Steve" apparently suffered a much less troublesome fate. When Pete betrayed an old cleric friend of his, that cleric made a quip about calling him "Brainy Pete" before enacting his revenge.
