* The ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' side-story prequel manga ''Fight 7th'' reveals that after failing to reach the 7th Gundam Fight Finals in time (due to being busy stopping a terrorist group from disrupting the Fight), Shuuji Kurosu, the Gundam Fighter for Neo-Japan, is dismissed by his country. He decides to take his talents to [[spoiler:Neo-Hong Kong]], and renames himself [[spoiler:Master Asia, and through further training, also takes the name ''Tohofuhai'' (Undefeated of the East)]].
** In the anime proper, Master Asia, upon appearing at the opening ceremonies of the Gundam Fight Finals, declares his intention to win and retain the title of Gundam of Gundams for Neo-Hong Kong, and once he accomplishes that, he will truly be Undefeated of the East, West, North, South, and Central, and will declare himself "Super Asia". The drama CD ''Gundam Fight: Round 3'' parodies this, as the movie version of Master Asia declares that he already ''is'' Undefeated of the East, West, North, South, and Central, resulting in confusion from the other characters in the movie, and catcalls from the audience, particularly the real Chibodee, much to the real Master Asia's chagrin.

* At least two members of Creator/AchievementHunter have gotten ''gamer'' name changes over the years. Creator/MichaelJones spent a good deal of his time on the team as "[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic MLP]]Michael" before being able to get the more useful "[=MJones=]". In a more meaningful variation, Jeremy Dooley used to go by the nonsensical name "Jerem6401", but when he was promoted to be part of the main team, he changed his name to "[=JDoolz=]"

* In {{Traveller}} the Darrians and several other races get a new name at their coming of age. In the Darrians case that is simply added onto the other names and the original isn't lost.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Similar to the ''[[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome Star Trek IV]]'' example, in the penultimate episode, "The Dogs of War", the replacement for the USS ''Defiant'', the ''Sao Paolo'', is renamed the ''Defiant'' in the first ship's honor.

* It's a part of [[MagicalNativeAmerican Tayledras]] culture in the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series that individuals may change their [[NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom descriptive "use-names"]] after life-changing events. Darkwind, one of the heroes of the ''Mage Winds'' trilogy, was previously named Songwind but changed it after a disaster which killed his mother, estranged him from his father, and caused him to give up using magic. Darkwind's father Starblade eventually quips that he's considered changing ''his'' name to Starshadow, as he feels like a shadow of his former self, but there's already a Shadowstar in their clan and it would be too confusing.
