* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has a character named Viral, who fits with the DNA ThemeNaming of many antagonists (Lord ''Genome'', the Four Generals named after the Nucleobases, etc.); however, his name (following the Japanese rules of pronunciation) can be also spelt "Bilal", as in French comic book artist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enki_Bilal Enki Bilal]]. That's why Viral's mecha is named ''Enki''du and the song associated with him on the soundtrack is called "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nikopol_Trilogy Nikopol]]".

Then there's the connection to the English word "virile", which ties into the fact that Enkidu was a wild man from ''[[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]]'' who was tamed to civilisation with sex. (Not to mention how the Japanese pronunciation of '[[TheHero Simon]]' sounds a lot [[https://en.wiktionary/org/wiki/semen like...]])

* ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' has the achievement "[=Cr0wned=]", earned by killing a Witch with a headshot. Another term for the head is the crown; "0wned" is typical LeetLingo for scoring against an opponent; and if you pronounce "cr0wn" as if you were using that second meaning, it sounds like "crone", as in an old person or a ''witch''.

* One {{Deathworld}} in the TabletopGame/Warhammer40K universe is called Phyrr. On one hand, it is an obvious pun on ''fear''. On the other, the {{Trope Namer|s}} for Deathworlds is Creator/HarryHarrison's Deathworld trilogy, where the planet in question is called... Pyrr.
