* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Ganon, the BigBad of the whole ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' series, is almost consistently referred to as "Calamity Ganon." Not "the calamity, Ganon," but "Calamity Ganon" as a whole proper noun. Previous incarnations of Ganon(dorf) were given fancy extra titles such as "Prince of Darkness," "Great King of Evil," and "Dark Lord," but this incarnation of Ganon is considered to be such a destructive entity that "Calamity" has come to be considered part of its proper name.

* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Nightmare Moon]] fits this fairly well, as [[BadassPrincess Princess]] [[LargeHam Luna]] was known by this name after becoming a FallenAngel. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Assuming they're actually the same individual]]; one of [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW the tie-in comics]] portrayed it as full-on DemonicPossession, although their canon status is uncertain.
