* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', many Ghouls have aliases gained as a result of some trait or behavior. Some were assigned to them by the [[TheHunter CCG]] or the Media, while others actively create an identity. In general, they serve as a warning since only dangerous Ghouls manage to move from a Case Number to an alias. A few Investigators also manage to gain a nickname as a result of their deeds.

* In ''Manga/Classi9'', most composers in Class S- have a "second name" related to their exploits in classical music: Mozart is the ''Wonderkind'', Beethoven is the ''Master Musician'', Wagner is the ''King of Music Drama'', Liszt is the ''Piano Virtuoso'', Chopin is the ''Poet of the Piano''. Tchaikovsky has another type of "second name" because of his reputation as a ruthless fighter in Vienna, he is the "Poisonous Mushroom of Russia". Since the nicknames InUniverse are the same as their real-life counterparts, it is safe to assume Haydn's second name would end up being the ''Father of the Modern Symphony''.

Added DiffLines:

** Since the player chooses the name for the player character in all the main games, all of them get a title so that later games can refer to them in a way generic enough to fit regardless of what kind of a character you might have played as in an earlier game -- ''Arena'' had the Eternal Champion, ''Daggerfall'' refers to you as the Agent, ''Morrowind'' makes you the Nerevarine, ''Oblivion'' called you the Champion of Cyrodiil (or [[spoiler: Sheogorath]], but that's more inheriting someone's name along with their position) and ''Skyrim'' dubs you the Dovahkiin or the Last Dragonborn. The degree to which they are used ''during'' the game varies; Nerevarine and Dovahkiin are both central to the course of the main quests, and Agent is used generically more than once since Daggerfall's protagonist is one, while Eternal Champion and Champion of Cyrodiil are just titles the character gets rewarded with at the end of the respective main quest.

* Il Duce, the aged assassin [[spoiler:and father of Connor and Murphy]] from ''Film/TheBoondockSaints''. So BadAss that he can trick an FBI agent into thinking he's six guys with a gun apiece instead of one guy with six guns.

* Professional wrestlers in addition to their stage names will also sometimes use nicknames, the best known is probably Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin being called "The Texas Rattlesnake". As if "Stone Cold" wasn't a BadAss ''enough'' nickname.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration 2'' where Ibis Douglas has the BadAss nickname "Shooting Star"; this is actually an insult as she is a terrible pilot, and the nickname is a reference to the fact that she is constantly crashing her giant robot (in other words, like a shooting star, she's always plummeting to the Earth!). In a parody, her Rival, Sleigh Prestly gains the nickname "The Scarlet Comet" as a joke on Char (partially because Shooting Star is one of Amuro's nicknames).
