* Almost everyone in ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'' is ADogNamedDog or simply referred to by their species surname (Mr.Turtle for example). Franklin is an exception, as is his sister Harriet in the cartoons.

Franklin is an exception, as is his sister Harriet in the cartoons. {{Justified|Trope}} because WordOfGod says that "Franklin in the Dark" was intended to be a one-shot story with Franklin being the only character. But when she made more stories, she wanted to emphasize the importance of Franklin and that he is the main character by not giving names to the other characters, thus making Franklin unique and important.

Those two REALLY felt like a stretch
* A very mild example, but Stannis Barratheon only one of his siblings not to have a R name: Robert (older) and Renly (younger).

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': ** Stannis Barratheon is this to his brothers Robert (older) and Renly (younger). Fortunately for him, he's the only one still alive. ** Tyrion is the only Lannister sibling (of Tywin's children at least) whose name doesn't end with the phonetic "''I''" sound like his older twin siblings Cersei and Jamie. This actually reflects his status as TheUnfavorite. ** Arya Stark is the only one of Ned Stark's children whose name starts with a vowel. The rest are Robb, Sansa, Bran and Rickon, as well as her illegitimate paternal half-brother Jon. Likewise, Bran is this to his legitimate brothers Robb (eldest) and Rickon (youngest).

* The Angels in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' all have names ending in "-el"- Ramiel, Zeruel, Israfel, etc.- except for one named Sandalphon and another named Tabris, [[spoiler:AKA Kaworu.]] This is because the "-el" ending means "of God" in Hebrew, and those named angels in Judeo-Christian lore do indeed mostly have names ending in "-el", although there are exceptions, and Sandalphon is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandalphon one of them]]. There is no angel named "Tabris" or anything like it, though. A common theory is that Gainax is referencing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theophory_in_the_Bible#Yah_theophory Yah theophory]] name "Tabbris" meaning "Good of Yahweh or Yahweh is Good". If true[[JustForFun/SyndicateQuestersUnitedAgainstDeviousness ,]] however, that still makes Tabris the odd one out, since he is the only one without an actual angelic name.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' has the Koopalings, named after famous musicians. The exception is Morton Koopa Jr., named after Morton Downey, Jr., a talk show host as well. He also has Jr. as the last name instead of Koopa. ** It was revealed that Larry Koopa is the true OddOneOut, as unlike the other Koopalings, he wasn't named after any particular person. WordOfGod confirmed that "he looked like a Larry".

And yet Gumball is the odd name out. [[note]] Originally, his real name was Zack, with Gumball just being his nickname. But after the events of a certian episode, he legally changed his name to Gumball[[/note]]
