* The villain Goda from ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex 2nd Gig'' manages to exemplify a Japanese take on Psmith Psyndrome. In his first appearance, he points out to Aramaki that most people read his name wrong and that his given name, written 一人 (normally read as "hitori"), is actually "Kazunodo." He also likes it, because after having been corrected once, people have a much easier time recalling his name later.

Some people [[MyNaymeIs spell their names differently from the usual spelling]]. Some people not only spell their names differently from the usual spelling, but can tell when somebody saying their name ''is spelling it wrong in his head''. It's as if they can infer the other person having an "incorrect" FunetikAksent.

* Franchise/KingdomHearts has the all-powerful X-Blade, sometimes pronounced Kai-Blade. However, most characters pronounced it Kee-Blade, like the signature Keyblade weapons. Somehow the characters know how to distinguish between the X-Blade and their normal Keyblades.

** Inverted when Durkon didn't prepare the Control Winds spell even though he knew they'd be going through the Windy Canyon. [[RuleOfFunny Somehow]], Durkon had thought the title referred to the canyon's "winding" passages. [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0837.html Lampshaded by V in the same strip]].

* Early in ''Literature/TheGraceOfKings'', LoveableRogue Kuni Garu crashes a party under the name of Fin, a wealthy young man. When his love interest, Jia, points out that she just met the actual Fin, Kuni [[RefugeInAudacity then claims]] that he's Fin's cousin, ''Phin'', and purses his lips to show the (nearly nonexistent) difference in pronunciation.

*** Played with, in that whereas initially Pteppic pronounces every "t" word with a "p" in the beginning, by the time he's finished his education in Ankh-Morpork, even he doesn't include the "p" in front of his own name, thinking of himself as Teppic.
