* ''TheGuild'', being a show on the web about gamers, definitely uses this. We sort of know the real names of the characters - all but Tink - but they rarely get used in favour of their gamer handles.

* The ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' live-action movie has Decepticon Barricade grill the protagonist over his alias;
--> "Are you ladiesman217?"

* The ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' live-action movie has Decepticon Barricade grill the protagonist over his alias;
alias:
--> "Are you ladiesman217?"[=LadiesMan217=]?"
** In the Japanese dub it's "playboy217" since "ladies' man" isn't a familiar term in Japan. To better suit this joke in the Spanish dub, his username is "[=DonJuan217=]", named after the famed [[Literature/DonJuan Spanish womanizer]]. In the IDW comics adaptation, his [[BlandNameProduct [=ePay=]]] username is "hotstud217".

* In the SharedUniverse of ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'' and ''Webcomic/BloodStain'', the main characters of both comics interact with each other through the in-universe MMORPG. We see their in-game usernames in a supplemental comic, and we see a subversion for this trope; the usernames are clear references to their real names. Ally's and Dr. Stein's usernames are puns on their names ("allycat", "bloodstein"), while Lisa's and Elliot's are goofy but still clear ("liiiiiiiiisa", "ellyoldcoot").

* ''Literature/HalfPrince'' has most of the characters refer to each other by their Second Life character's name once they meet offline, because it's simply easier for them to recognize each other more easily this way.
