** UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}} allows for the assignment of both #0 and #00.

to:

** UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}} allows for the assignment of both #0 and #00. Currently, it is only used in the lower series; with Garrett Smithley using the #0 in the Xfinity Series, while Cole Custer uses the #00 in the Truck Series.



*** The #00 was used by Buckshot Jones in the late 90's and early 2000's, as a play on his nickname. He eventually left it with Michael Waltrip Racing, the last team he drove for in the Cup Series, who themselves continued to use it to only minor success (a pair of wins with David Reutimann) until 2011. Since 2012, this car has borne the number 55, and as of 2014 is driven by Brian Vickers.

* Louise, the titular Zero from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' is a DoubleSubversion. Her nickname comes from her apparently non-existent magical prowess, and nothing about her implies any level of other distinction...[[spoiler: until it turns out that her inability to cast any normal spell properly comes from her alignment with the forgotten branch of "void magic" -- which, needless to say, includes some insanely powerful combat spells]].

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. Usually, they're some form of {{Badass}}.

Often, 'Zero' may simply be used for its convenient XtremeKoolLetterz. However, there is sometimes [[JustifiedTrope justification]] in that the "zero" model of something may be the prototype -- thus, if TheAce is number one, the PhlebotinumRebel is number zero. Or "zero" might be the SuperPrototype, FlawedPrototype...or PsychoPrototype. The "zeroth" example of something thus makes a nice candidate for a SixthRanger. It may follow the format of a "top ten list," where number one is the best...therefore Zero must be even better. This may also be used in a TarotMotifs context.

* RealLife example: The Mitsubishi [=A6M=] Zero (or Type 0 Carrier Fighter). While its name derives from the perfectly mundane fact that it was originally produced in 194'''0''' (or 260'''0''' by the Imperial Japanese calendar), its name carries a historical feeling of menace in Allied nations due to its being Japan's primary naval fighter in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII as well as the best carrier fighter in the world at the time. Its maneuverability was the stuff of legend and getting into a low-speed dogfight with a zero was a death sentence to any early-war allied pilot. Even late in the war, with vastly superior allied aircraft and tactics, a zero with a skilled pilot was a fearsome opponent. It didn't help that many were relegated to [[SuicideAttack kamikaze missions]] due to a lack of skilled pilots, adding a horrifying new level of dread at the end of the war.

* Similar to the computer science example, outside of the United States, Japan, Russia (primarily in Latin America and Europe), the floor one most commonly enters a building on (the one at "ground-level") is ''not'' referred to as the "first floor." Instead, the floor ''above'' this floor is called the "first floor", and the numbering scheme continues from there. Many languages in these regions call the "ground-level" floor roughly the lingustic equivalent of the "zeroth floor," even if the floor isn't literally called that. Given that the numbering schemes for floors in buildings can often be quite inconsistent and ad hoc, this is definitely a much weaker example than the comp. sci. one above, but it does follow the same logic of starting counting at zero as opposed to one.
** Buldings in downtown Milwaukee typically have "basement", "ground floor", and "first floor". One side of the building will typically have an entrance on the "ground floor", the other side will have an entrance on the "first floor". This has to do with changes in elevation between streets.

* Similar to the computer science example, outside of the United States, Japan, Russia (primarily in Latin America and Europe), the floor one most commonly enters a building on (the one at "ground-level") is ''not'' referred to as the "first floor." Instead, the floor ''above'' this floor is called the "first floor", and the numbering scheme continues from there. Many languages in these regions call the "ground-level" floor roughly the lingustic linguistic equivalent of the "zeroth floor," even if the floor isn't literally called that. Given that the numbering schemes for floors in buildings can often be quite inconsistent and ad hoc, this is definitely a much weaker example than the comp. sci. one above, but it does follow the same logic of starting counting at zero as opposed to one.
** Buldings Buildings in downtown Milwaukee typically have "basement", "ground floor", and "first floor". One side of the building will typically have an entrance on the "ground floor", the other side will have an entrance on the "first floor". This has to do with changes in elevation between streets.

* ''WebComic/LastRes0rt'' contains a 0 in its name, and uses "Mind the Zero" as a tagline in places (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.
