* The ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' series has the recurring villain (and sometimes playable protagonist) Naked Snake/Big Boss, who manages to remain pretty anonymous and mysterious throughout the series, and the only part of his real name to ever be revealed is his first name, which just so happens to be "John" (and even then it is suggested that it is possibly another alias). Some of his comrades even just knows him by the name "John Doe".

Added DiffLines:

* A downplayed example in ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun''. The Solomons are aliens living incognito on Earth, and the males are literally named Tom, Dick, and Harry. At one point Don realizes this while using the phrase, and is met with paranoid looks by the family.
