* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'', Niko doesn't use a surname, and doesn't appear to have biological family. Her mentor, Ariel, is the same. The Kiwi species (a culture of {{Badass}} {{Hobbits}}) also appear not to use surnames.

** None of the named Romulans (e.g. Sela, Donatra, Tel'Aura, Tomalak) appears to have a last name. Given that they're an offshoot of Vulcans, this may be a JustifiedTrope. However, at least one non-canon novel has a character refer to a Romulan by name. Specifically, Captain John Harriman (the inept captain of the ''Enterprise''-B, whom the book turned into a {{Badass}}) purposefully calls Admiral Vokar by his first name Aventeer, knowing the latter would perceive it as an insult.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'', Crow's real name is Khovalyg. Justified, as he's of Mongolian heritage and the ''etsgiin ner''[[note]]A patronymic, similar to the original style of names like Johnson [[/note]] is largely insignificant even in modern usage.

* The companies from ''Webcomic/{{Consolers}}'', [[JustifiedTrope being companies]], only go by the name of the company they represent like "Nintendo", "Sony" and "Sega". In the case of characters with two-word names like Square Enix, it's usually treated like one full name in two parts rather than a first name and surname.

* From the ''Gensokyo20XX'' series, we get Ren, who was only reffered to as well "Ren". Apparently, he doesn't last have last name, however, since he's married to Ran, his last name may as well be "Yakumo" like hers. We also have this with Chen, who, true to canon, doesn't have her surname revealed.
