* In the ''WhateleyUniverse'', Elizabeth Carson's first superhero name was Miss Champion, when she was one of two teen sidekicks to Champion. Her second superhero name was Lady Champion. On the other hand, it also gets subverted: Captain Courage is mainly known for a huge number of paternity suits and failures to pay child support.

* Somewhat zigzagged with the WhateleyUniverse's Goodkind family. If you're a mutant, they're one of the most prominent in-universe examples of [[TheManIsKeepingUsDown the Baseline keeping you down]]; if you're not, they're just a dynasty of honest, hard-working, and even ethical businessmen and -women whose historical track record is actually one of ''supporting'' emancipation and equality movements. (Precisely what motivates their specifically anti-mutant stance has yet to be revealed; there seems to be a personal reason at work that not even all family members are clued in to.)

* Several of the character in the Creator/GilbertAndSullivan opera ''Theatre/{{Ruddigore}}'' count as parodies- the heroine is Rosa Maybudd, and the male characters are Robin Oakapple and his servant Adam Goodheart, and Sir Richard Dauntless- the male characters lead to a bit of zigzagging, as Robin is actually the stereotypically evilly named Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd from a family of DastardlyWhiplash types (though still a mostly-good person) and some version of the script have Adam changing his name to Gideon Crawle to match his master's forced FaceHeelTurn. Sir Richard Dauntless, meanwhile, turns out to be a self-entitled, ahem, dick. Also subtly present in the PosthumousCharacter Stephen Trusty, the highly-respected father of Dame Hannah.

* Zigzagged in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' and ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. Angel, Faith and Harmony, are both villains and heroes. In Angel's case it was an ironic name because he was 'the demon with the angelic face;' then he did a HeelFaceTurn and the name ceased to be ironic (except of course for his still being a vampire.)

* Subverted with Ezekiel from the SpiderMan comics; he was named after a benign prophet from the Old Testament, and indeed, Spidey trusted him for a while. [[TreacherousAdvisor this turned out to be a mistake.]]

* Subverted in ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. An {{artificial intelligence}} called "[[GoodSamaritan Samaritan]]" is featured starting halfway through the third season. An artificial intelligence that it ''most definitely'' both [[AIIsACrapshoot a crapshoot]] and [[BigBrotherIsWatching an unrestricted surveillance system]].
* While its set in the CrapsackWorld that is ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' has Captain (later Chapter Master) ''Gabriel Angelos''.

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', Jerin's favourite sister is called "Summer". She's very sweet, and Jerin considers her the prettiest of his sisters. (Or at least he claims to do so, when the question is who gets to go to the big city and find a husband for [[ExoticExtendedMarriage all of the sisters]] - he argues that Summer is the prettiest and they want the husband to consent to the match, don't they?) Maybe he just says this because he likes her and going to the city is fun.

** It's also a possible allusion to Christian belief of the angel Lucifer (whose name means "bearer of light") and whose pride made him try and take the place of God. Describes Light rather well, really. It also doesn't help that his given name is written with [[FourIsDeath four strokes]].

** Arguably a fringe case between this and FluffyTheTerrible, but regardless, being a scary, murderous lunatic [[TheStoic with an inhumanly high pain tolerance]] isn't very conducive to being an effective drug-dealer, given Mr. Sunshine's [[CutsceneIncompetence never shown doing regular business,]] and almost always shown scaring/murdering someone. Admittedly, [[VillainProtagonist so's the Boss...]]

* One of the first NPC's you meet in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is named Sunny Smiles. She gives you your first weapon, shows you where to find clean water (important if playing hardcore mode), and does a brief tutorial on the game's crafting system. All in all, a pretty nice lady. She's also one of the only characters in the game assigned the "Very Good" karma.

* Creator/RobinHobb plays with this interestingly in her ''[=FitzChivalry=]'' series (the ''Literature/{{Farseer}}'' trilogy): all of the princes are given names like this as part of magic which is supposed to install a corresponding personality in them. It doesn't work perfectly though- the hero is the illegitimate son of Chivalry, demonstrating an ironic application of his name, and Regal is TheEvilPrince. Chivalry was otherwise highly regarded, however, and Verity plays this trope absolutely straight.

* ''Literature/CodexAlera'' 's Fidelias, whose case is complicated. He knows the political climate of his country is nearing civil war and feels that the king isn't doing enough to prevent this. So he betrays the king out of loyalty to the kingdom.
