* G, the BigBad of ''Manga/RealBoutHighSchool'', who honestly doesn't remember his name after the years of psychological and physical conditioning he was subjected to since he was a boy in order to become the perfect bodyguard. As far as he's concerned, it's a placeholder; He'll find out what his name is if it's the last thing he does.
** [[ShoutOut Like many characters in the series]], G is a CaptainErsatz of a ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters King of Fighters]]'' character; in his case, K' (see below).

** In ''{{Manga/Pokemon Special}}'', the protagonists of each arc are named after their generation's games. So the protagonists for the XY arc are named... X and Y. Granted, when romanized their names become Ekkusu and Wai, [[AerithAndBob but it still doesn't make their names any less weird.]] Averted with Y in the Viz version, as her actual name is [[DubNameChange Yvonne]] but has 'Y' as her nickname.

* ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' has the Arcdark agent X. According to him, it's supposed to be forgettably generic.

''Via Reader's Digest, 1958''

My friend R.B. Jones doesn't have a first or middle name only the initials R.B. This unusual arrangement was never a problem until he went to work for a government agency. The government is not accustomed to initialed employees, so R.B. had a lot of explaining to do. On the official forms for the payroll and personnel departments, his name was carefully entered as R (Only) B (Only) Jones.

Sure enough, when R.B. got his pay check, it was made out to Ronly Bonly Jones.

* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'': B is OnlyKnownByHerNickname; her full name, 'Gliese 504 b', is bit too long and awkward to go by conversationally.

* Music/XJapan was known in its early years only as X; they adopted the "Japan" once they broke into the international market, to distinguish from the above.

* The main character from ''VideoGame/FreezeME'' is just called R, and her best friend is a dog named M. No real reason for it is given InUniverse--probably they just sound cool.
