* Simon Templar in ''Film/TheSaint'' takes all of his aliases from the names of saints, including Martin De Porres, Bruno Hartenfaust, and Thomas More. He also references some of the things necessary for a person to be considered a saint (a few steps are left out, either as a result of carelessness or RuleOfDrama), and manages at least the "three miracles" part.

The process of being named a saint is canonization (or, in Orthodox Christianity, glorification), a long and complicated process. [[note]]Note that canonization does not ''make'' one a saint, as only God can do that. Canonization is merely the process by which the Church recognizes that a person has become a saint. Many saints may exist who have not been canonized. In fact, Orthodoxy defines a saint as ''anyone'' who was accepted by God into Heaven, but not all saints will be recognized by the living because not all saints will have miracles granted in their names by God.[[/note]] For more information, just look up the relevant keyword(s) on TheOtherWiki.

* In the novelizations of the ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' webcomic, it's mentioned that protagonist Agatha's grandmother raised her sons to become heroes instead of the family's usual blood-thirsty maniacs, eventually killing her husband to save them and being killed by [[GeniusLoci Castle Heterodyne]] in return. This led to her being made the patron saint of Those Who Run Afoul of [[MadScientist Sparks.]]
