* In ''{{Manga/Pokemon Adventures}}'', 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.

* O is the name of a minor NPC in ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''. He's not just any old O, but part of the ‘divine alphabet’. He openly voices his disdain for mortals and advices them to stop acting like mindless insects and see the bigger picture. If you ask him how, he'll open his mouth in an o-shape, through which you see the endlessness of the universe (permanent +1 Wisdom).
