* From ''WesternAnimation/{[Ninjago}}'', an inventor named Cyrus Borg. Guess his specialty. He even ''lampshades'' this trope by joking that when his parents named him, his career choice was set.

*** Very, very much lampshaded in Creator/CleolindaJones' ''Movies in Fifteen Minutes'' version of ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]'':
--> '''Snape:''' I want two rolls of parchment on WEREWOLVES by tomorrow, including what WEREWOLVES look like, how to detect WEREWOLVES in the faculty of a British boarding school for wizards, and the definition of the Latin word "lupus." CLASS DISMISSED!



*** Parodied in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'''s book three parody. Obvious names are given to the ''wrong'' characters.

to:

*** ** Miserly shop owner Caractacus Burke, who bought a historical relic from a desperate and heavily pregnant young woman for a few coins.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Discworld/SmallGods'' has the anchorite St. Ungulant. Who isn't a saint, nor did he feel particularly attracted to the hermit life, but when people noticed his full name was Sevrian Thaddeus Ungulant, there really was nothing left for it.


Added DiffLines:

** Kharn the Betrayer (also of the World Eaters) has a multiple one: not only is his name similar to his profession of carnage, it's also similar to the Arabic for traitor (he got the nickname when both his legion and the enemy preferred to find shelter than keep fighting. Kharn found this lack of moral fibre so reprehensible he started running around with a flamer and torching every shelter and SpaceMarine in sight).
** Averted withLiterature/CiaphasCain: despite a double dose of BiblicalBadGuy names (the priest who demanded Jesus' death and the first murderer), the worst he's ever done is built a reputation of valor and courage he claims to be entirely fraudulent. However, every time he's taken what looked like the easy way out directly leads to victory (discovering an enemy plot or entrance into the Imperial's base), and when the chips are down he always fights.

* DC Comics hero, Comicbook/{{Steel}}, once worked with a man named Dr. Villain (pronounced "will-hane"). The good doctor was GenreSavvy and did a bit of LampshadeHanging on this trope when he was first introduced. Guess what he turned out to be?

* [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0018.html The chimera Trigak]] from ''Webcomic/{{The Order of the Stick}}'' could be interpreted this way since his name could be taken to mean mean "three 'gak's". Belkar fulfills the prophecy in the second panel [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0021.html three strips later]].
