* In the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' book ''The Secret', Cassie rescues a litter of four skunk kits. The Animorphs take over tending the kits, with Tobias doing much of the skunk-sitting while the other Animorphs are in school. Marco ends up naming the skunk kits after members of The Ramones - Joey, Johnny, Marky and C.J.

* ''ViolinistOfHameln'' has just about ''everyone'' named after musical instruments and terms (Guitar, Bass, Cornett, Oboe). The only exceptions are the hero, Hamel, who is named after the violinist of legend (and who plays a huge violin), and Pandora (who opens the box that sealed the Mazoku inside). Places are also named appropriately, such as Stacatto Village and the kingdom of Dalsegno. Additionally, the four generals of the Mazoku are named Bass, Guitar, Sizer (Synthesizer, or keyboard) and Drum, the main instruments of a rock band; the heroes are Hamel (violin), Raiel (a kind of piano, which he carries on his back -- a mean feat, since it's made of gold and weighs 500 pounds!), Oboe, Flute and Trom Bone -- all instruments of classic music. BigBad Kestra (or Chestra, depending on translation) could mean ''orchestra'' or simply refer to the chest he was trapped in (pictures of him depict a chest with an eye glaring out of the darkness). Others include Vocal and his partner Orgel, a German loanword that in the Japanese language means 'music box', and in German means 'organ'. The writer even manages to further the themey-ness with sibling pairs like [[spoiler:Lute and Flute]], and the Net siblings Clari Net and Cor Net.

* [[Music/GunsNRoses Axl and Slash]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFight''. Simons is named after [[Music/{{KISS}} Gene Simmons]] and G. Oriber (one of the obese mooks) is named after Graham Oliver from Music/{{Saxon}}. Sexy transvestites Music/{{Poison}} and [[Music/RoxyMusic Roxy]] also count... and when they were censored and turned into generic male mooks, those mooks were renamed Sid (as in [[SexPistols Sid Vicious]]) and Billy (as in BillyIdol)! There are also the bosses Music/{{Sodom}} and Music/{{Abigail}}, who shares facial markings with Music/KingDiamond.

Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''Manga/ShamanKing'' featured a team of shamans called Team [[Music/BlackSabbath "Sabbath"]], and the members were named Ronny, [[Creator/OzzyOsbourne Ouji]], and Aiyomi. Their spirits have moves named after Black Sabbath songs (with Music/WhiteSnake having moves named after Music/{{Dio}} songs), and Rose and Big Pig's names were changed to "Neon Knight" and "War Pig" in English, further pushing the reference.
