Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': A tragic example occurs in the Future Trunks Saga. Future Bulma is the one who gave [[EvilTwin Goku Black]] his name; he initially went by Goku's actual name, and Future Bulma couldn't stand associating such a [[OmnicidalManiac genocidal monster]] with the identity of her dear friend.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'': Michelangelo gives virtually every mutated enemy of theirs a nickname; Dogpound/Rahzar for Chris Bradford, Fishface for Xever, etc. Humorously, in "The Pig and the Rhino," his naming the mutated Anton Zeck and Ivan Steranko Bebop and Rocksteady was a case of LineOfSightName.
