* The minor character King Bushwick the Thirty-Third (or "Thoity-Thoid") of ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' seems to invoke this, but then it is revealed that he is the island's first king, who is called that because he lives on Bushwick and 33rd.
* The song ''The Phony King of England'' from ''Disney/RobinHood'' mentioned a suggestion that King John I should be now known as King John "the Worst!"

-> I mean, I'm not a number. You know, Willem Five is next to Bertha 21 in the meadow. [[note]] Referring to cow names (The first female calf of a cow named Bertha would be named 'Bertha 2' and so on) [[/note]]

** Before Paul I, the standard naming tradition to identify monarchs without an ordinal was by name and patronymic, similar to the Arabic custom above (Anna Ioannovna[[note]]Anna, daughter of Ioann (Ivan)[[/note]], Alexei Mikhailovich[[note]]Alexei, son of Mikhail[[/note]] etc). Before PeterTheGreat, this was used for all tsars at all, the ordinals weren't used and were assigned postfactum by historians.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': King Robert Baratheon, the First of His Name, actually. Most prospective kings also use this style, even if they are the first of their name. "First Of His Name" is even the title of Season 4's fifth episode.

** Cleon II in ''Foundation in Empire'', who took his name in memory of Cleon I, under whom the Empire reached its zenith. In contrast with the aforementioned examples, Cleon II likely surpassed his namesake, as Cleon I was not a forceful monarch and he preferred letting his First Ministers do the real governing, but Cleon II was a very active and powerful emperor.

* Subverted in Literature/APracticalGuideToEvil. The Dread Emperors and Empresses of [[TheEmpire Praes]] never use their original names as regnal names, instead choosing various NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast like [[ShoutOut Maleficent]], [[CardCarryingVillain Terribilis]], [[RefugeInAudacity Treacherous]] or [[AwesomeMcCoolName Triumphant]]. It is also very rare for the Tyrants to use an ordinal number, partly because rule of Praes isn't hereditary- Tyrants ascend the tower exclusively through KlingonPromotion. The only names known to have been re-used are the name of the empire's founder Maleficent and Terribilis (though it isn't known why Terribilis was re-used, it was the second Terribilis who is best-known and the first was a historical footnote).

* Played straight in the ''GeneCatlow'' fanfic The Basalt City Chronicles, in which Priest-Emperor Zaykar Kh'Naral is the 24th of that name. His grandfather was Rraghan Kh'Naral CDLXVII (The 467th). It's said that their dynasty reaches back into prehistoric times.
