The most common Significant Monogram, of course, is "[[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} JC]]," most often seen on the SacrificialLamb, MessianicArchetype, or TheHero. Those initials can be found everywhere from Jesse Custer in ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' to Jiminy Cricket in ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' to John Connor in ''Film/TheTerminator'' and its sequels to [[VideoGame/DeusEx JC Denton]] to UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar[[note]]How's ''that'' for a TemporalParadox?[[/note]]. When those specific initials are used unintentionally and in a completely discordant manner with the character's role in the story, they can often lead to an almost literal EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory situation.
