* 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.

* In ''Webcomic/TheNoob'', a little girl gets perma-banned by the KKK-like moderators without so much as a word of explanation, when he mistakes her character for the protagonist's, due to them having the same appearance and the same name.

* In ''Film/TheMatrix'' the rebels seems to adopt their handles as their names. Amazingly enough, their aliases are cool and mysterious... presumably because having a character named Yoda324 would have ruined the tone of the movie.
