* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' may well be the reigning champion of this trope, considering that a grand total of ''sixteen characters'' have anagrams for names. The names of the members of Organization XIII are simply anagrams of their original names - or in one case, a name they stole from someone else - with an [[LetXBeTheUnknown X added in]], while Xehanort's name is an anagram-plus-X of both "another" and [[TheHeartless "no heart"]]. [[spoiler: ''Birth By Sleep'' essentially makes a third one: "no earth".]]

* The band John Squire formed after Music/TheStoneRoses was called The Seahorses. While he claimed it was just a coincidence, it was often pointed out that this was an anagram for "he hates roses", as well as "the rose ashes". Squire actually got sick enough of this speculation that he briefly dropped the "the" from the band name, just so "he hates roses" would no longer work as an anagram.

** Parodied in the episode "Jaws Wired Shut" where Lisa was at the movies and had to solve an anagram before the film. The letters were MOT HANKS and Lisa said it was insulting to the audience's intelligence... until Apu pointed out that the answer was the (fictional) Indian actor Otm Shank, "India's answer to Brian Dennehy".
