* The Koopalings of the ''SuperMarioBros'' games are all named after popular musicians at the time: [[Music/IggyPop Iggy]] Koopa, [[Music/{{Motorhead}} Lemmy]] Koopa, [[Music/LudwigVanBeethoven Ludwig Von]] Koopa (sharing his hairstyle), [[Music/RoyOrbison Roy]] Koopa (sharing his horn-rimmed sunglasses), and [[Music/ThePlasmatics Wendy O.]] Koopa. Exceptions were talk show host [[Series/TheMortonDowneyJrShow Morton Koopa Jr.]] (though that one also sung and worked as a DJ, and the character's star over one eye is probably a Music/{{KISS}} reference), and Larry Koopa - "he’s not Larry Mullen Jr. from Music/{{U2}} or LarryKing—[[http://kotaku.com/how-a-mario-character-was-named-after-motorheads-lemmy-1750180427 he just looked like a Larry.]]"

* Almost everybody in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' is named after a band, movie, or rock star. Dio Brando, the main villain, is named after both Ronnie James Dio and Marlon Brando. When the author ran out of tarot cards and Egyptian gods for the Stands, he fell back on the musical theme, naming them after bands, albums or songs (Crazy Diamond, Goo Goo Dolls, Superfly, Killer Queen). The Pillar Men provide the current page image (not shown: the youngest Pillar Man, Music/{{Santana}}).

* Almost everybody in It doesn't take long for even the most casual viewers/readers of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' is to realise that Hirohiko Araki has named just about every character ''in'' the damn thing after a band, movie, or rock star. ''something''. By far the most prominent is Araki's use of musical references, such as prominent villain Dio Brando, the main villain, is named after both Ronnie Brando (Ronnie James Dio and Marlon Brando. When Brando), numerous characters throughout the author ran out of entire series' run and just about every Stand originating after ''Stardust Crusaders''. Even the series' first lead protagonist - Jonathan Joestar - is named after a [[http://www.skylark.co.jp/jonathan/index.html Japanese restaurant chain]]. To start with, the Stands were given their names by linking a tarot cards card to a colour (Jotaro Kujo's ''Star Platinum'', Noriaki Kakyoin's ''Hierophant Green''; though Dio's Stand foregoes a colour and is simply named ''[[MemeticMutation The World]]'') before the latter half of ''Stardust Crusaders'' introduced villains with Stands named after members of the Egyptian gods for the Stands, he fell back on pantheon. By Part 3's end, Araki then returned to the musical theme, naming them after bands, albums or songs (Crazy Diamond, Goo Goo Dolls, Superfly, Killer Queen). The Pillar Men provide the current page image (not shown: the youngest Pillar Man, Music/{{Santana}}).
