* Averted in Helen Cresswell's Bagthorpe Saga, where Zero is the name of Jack's dog and his only distinguishing characteristic is that he may well be the dumbest canine in existence.

* ''WebComic/LastRes0rt'' contains a 0 in its name, and uses "Mind the Zero" as a tagline in places ([[ViewersAreMorons to help remind people that they need to type it with a '0' in the url, natch]]). Also, certain conventions that don't have a full table / booth space for ''Last Res0rt'' are referred to as "Last Res0rt Zero" events -- since the comic's creator is there, just in a reduced capacity.

* DC's New 52 arc ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'' uses this trope as part of their reimagining of the origin of Bizarro. A global power failure brought on by the [[PsychoRangers Crime Syndicate]] forced SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor to prematurely end an experiment of his to create a clone comprised of human and Kryptonian DNA, labeled [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Subject_B-0_(Prime_Earth) Subject B-Zero]]. Luthor referred to B-Zero as '[[ItIsDehumanising creature]]' for most of the arc, but, in time, grew to care for him.

* In the original ''Recap/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', the phrase "Base Delta Zero" was the Imperial command code to commence an OrbitalBombardment that would wipe out all life on a planet and effectively render it uninhabitable. Famously, it was also the only Imperial command code that never changed, so as to prevent any chance of confusion or misinterpretation over what was being ordered.

* Many baseball and basketball players whose name starts with O (such as Rey Ordonez, Al Oliver, and Orlando Woolridge) choose the number zero as a play off their name. However, it can also be used by other players (Gilbert Arenas, Robert Parrish who used '00') who just want a number that stands out.

* On the Roulette Wheel, zero is definitely hero for casinos. It is the presence of zero that tilts the probability of winning in favor of the House. 00 even more so; the payouts don't change whether the wheel has 0 or both 0 and 00. The odds? Hoo boy. ** We can be a little more specific than that: the payoff on a single number is 36 for 1 (your original chip, plus 35 more like it), but completely fair odds would be 37:1 on a single zero wheel and 38:1 on a double zero wheel. This carries over to the red/black payoff, which pays even money but doesn't pay either bet if a 0 or 00 comes up. It may not sound like much, but the net result is that most bets on a double-zero roulette table have an expected payoff of just under ninety-five cents on a dollar (making it one of the most profitable games for the house, and the "first five" bet is even ''worse'').
