* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', characters tend to get referred to more often by their {{MMORPG}} characters' names than their real ones, both in-series and out. A few characters' aliases are derived from their real names; for example, Kazuto Kirigaya goes by "Kirito" and Shino Asada goes by "Sinon". Asuna using her real name in ''Aincrad'' is cited by some characters as proof that she's a newbie (she adopts the aliases "Titania" and "Erika" in later games).
* ''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 this way.
* ''LightNovel/LogHorizon'' most characters also use username instead of their real name even some of them have their friends who learnt his/her real name.
