* 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.

* ''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?"

** 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").
