* ''Manga/{{Change 123}}''. Motoko, the main character, while normally a rather shy girl, has three distinct personalities, whose names start with 1, 2 and 3 ([=HiFuMi=]) and are able to use first class fighting skills. [[spoiler:And then there is the (hopefully) last personality, who calls herself zero, who has all the abilities of the HiFuMis, thus the most likely strongest fighter in the whole world, and the urge to kill everyone she sees.]]

** The trope goes all the way back to the classic ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' with Amuro [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Ray/Rei]]. His name is an anagram of the notorious WWII-era fighter, the Mitsubishi [=A6M=] Zero (A-Roku-Mu Rei).

* ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' takes this UpToEleven in the final duel between Yuma and [[spoiler:Astral ]]. When Yuma is on the verge of losing, he manages to activate a Trap which overlays two of his [[spoiler:Xyz Monsters]] to create [[spoiler:''Future Number 0: King of the Future, Hope'', a Rank 0 Xyz Monster]] with 0 ATK and DEF. The amazing part? Yuma wins using this new monster.

* In ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'', there are two [[SNKBoss bosses]] who go by the name Zero. The Zero you fight in ''2000'' is a [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters traitorous]] {{clon|ingBlues}}e who tries using a KillSat to take over NESTS. He gets killed by Kula, but succeeds in [[NukeEm nuking]] Southtown. You fight the '''real''' Zero in ''2001''. [[NobleDemon Turns out he's actually an old man]] [[BloodKnight who prefers a]] [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen fair fight]]. So he calls upon 3 strikers-a boss from a previous game, a {{Ninja}}, and a black mountain lion-to assist him in fighting you because he's a sub-boss. He dies in the end too. Both are capable of producing black holes.
** Actually, the Zero in ''2000'' was ultimately killed by Whip (getting blasted with his own satellite by Kula didn't help him much, though). Kula did, however, succeed in destroying the Zero Cannon before it could be used to cause any additional damage.

* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', the characters are all kidnapped by someone who calls themself Zero, to participate in the Nonary Game. The nine players are numbered one through nine, while Zero is the mastermind behind it all. With the release of the sequel, ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'', the series has been renamed Zero Escape; the second game removes most of the numerical motif but keeps the mastermind's name Zero. Yet another Zero is the main antagonist of the third game, ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma''.
** There's also the character with the self-given code name "Seven" in ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', to fit his bracelet number.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', a character named "Zero" arises, who serves not only as the Big Bad of the episode, but [[spoiler:he turns out to be Scott Hall / Number 1, a henchman from a previous episode]]. Thus, while he may not be a hero, he [[spoiler:survives not only being a henchman in a superhero/villain world, whose death is portented and lampshaded, but FIGHTING BROCK SAMPSON]], which counts as a superpower in its own right. [[spoiler:Then he DIES in his next appearance because he can't get over getting his ass kicked by BROCK FREAKING SAMPSON. One quick arm break and neck snap and he's back to being just another dead henchman.]]

** It's short for "Count Zero Interrupt", a computer term in the novels universe.
*** Actually a quite old computer term that has long ago lost its relevance but at the time of the novel's making was very new and sci-fi.

However...if a character in a story is named "Zero", or has "zero" as part of their name, then that character has at least one unique attribute that makes him/her/it significantly stand out from everyone else.

* The main character in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' is stated to represent a "zero", in sense of possessing unlimited potential. It also refers to his arcana, [[TarotMotifs The Fool]], which is also represented with a zero. The same idea is re-used in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.
