* While it isn't a common ''name'', it's worth mentioning that [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank Captain Qwark's]] name is not spelled like the ''word'' "Quark". [[{{Headscratchers}} Puzzlingly]], Alister Azimuth gets his name misspelled quite frequently, too, [[SubvertedTrope despite having the standard spelling in both his first and last name.]]

* MargaretWeis did this with the leader of her mercenary team ''[[Film/SevenSamurai Mag Force 7]],'' which was simultaneously both {{homage}} to and ripoff of ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven.'' Most of the directly-patterned characters died before the team got their own line of novels; by that time, the only two direct [[{{Expy}} Expies]] left were pilot Harry Luck and cyborg team leader "[[XtremeKoolLetterz Xris]]".
