* In ''Film/RomancingTheStone'', Jack gives his name as "Jack T. Colton." While berating him, Joan says (among other things) that "a real man is trustworthy." Later, when she asks what the "T" stands for, [[IronicEcho he says, "Trustworthy."]] But we never find out what the "T" ''really'' stands for.

* The titular captain of "Anime/{{Captain Harlock}} has the AwesomeMcCoolname of Phantom F. Harlock. No one knows what the F. stands for
* In the English dub of ''TokyoMewMew'', Akasaka Keiichiro's name was changed to Wesley J. Coolridge III. It's doubtful even 4Kids knew what the "J" stood for.

* Though it's just a regular Mysterious Initial, Count D of ''PetShopOfHorrors'' is always known simply as Count D. The chapter titles, however, are all words that begin with the letter D. Suggestions, perhaps?

* Walter C. Dornez from Anime/{{Hellsing}}, who was employed by the Hellsing Organization during WW2 as a VampireHunter, and was known at the time as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Angel of Death]]. When the main story takes place (about 50 years later), he had retired to become [[IronLady Sir Integra Hellsing's]] butler. His initial is never explained, but then again, [[InexplicablyAwesome there's a whole lot about Walter that's never really explained.]]

* [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Blooregard Q. Kazoo]]. Granted, he's an imaginary friend, and their names tend towards the silly and random, so he might not have a middle name at all.

* The Simpsons also have a mysterious first initial. In the "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" two-parter, it is revealed that Skinner's full name is "W. Seymour Skinner", just for the sake of adding him to the list of suspects that have for initials either WS or SM. [[spoiler:the culprit was Maggie Simpson.]] This is never mentioned again in the series.

*** Prior to this, in a (non-canon) novel PeterDavid had given it as 'Thelonius', probably in a homage to Kirk's style of middle name. He attempted to {{Retcon}} this with 'Thomas' in a later novel.
*** Or a homage to jazz musician Thelonious Monk and a reference to Riker's trombone playing.
