* For the most part, the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse [[ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames doesn't use codenames]]. All the Avengers are at least as well known to the public by their real names as their codenames (other than Thor, because [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep that is his real name]]). But it does have one example in the Winter Soldier. For bonus points, he's TheDreaded and a HeroKiller, and for more bonus points, the nickname came ''before'' people found out that he has [[SuperSoldier superpowers]]. And he's definitely better known as that than by his real name, [[spoiler:James Buchanan Barnes]].

* In the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series, Big Boss has a mythology based around him. Big Boss has fought in countless wars and saved the world from nuclear war a total of 3 times over the course of a Military career spanning 50 years. The United States used him as a basis for how to model their soldiers and took some of his DNA to genetically modify their soldiers. Other countries marveled at his legendary skills and some even doubted that he existed thinking no one man could accomplish all the things he did. Big Boss rightfully earned titles ranging from The Legendary Mercenary, the man who makes anything possible, One-Eyed Jack, Saladin (referencing the famous commander from the Crusades), and the greatest soldier of the 20th century. Big Boss was shrouded in myth by enemies and allies alike.
