The ability of characters to cause this effect is to some extent a function of the existing popularity of their name; for a character to really achieve this distinction, their name must be sufficiently obscure to be distinctive but common enough that other writers would have used it. Franchise/IndianaJones provides a prime example of a highly iconic character who doesn't count -- the name "Indiana" is so obscure that it would probably never have been used again even if ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' was a total flop (although part of that may have something to do with one of the United States of America sharing that name -- note that any LawyerFriendlyCameo will probably be named Oklahoma, Montana, or similar), while his surname is too common to have any attachments to one specific individual, similar to [[Franchise/TheMatrix Agent Smith]].

Smith]]. A good way to determine if a character counts as this is to search for their name on Google or Wikipedia. If said character dominates the results, then it's highly probable that they hold the one name limit.

Asking anyone on the street about the name "Ryu" will probably result in a bunch of Hadouken[=/=]Shoryuken references.
