* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', King Edgar takes charge of a band of thieves under the rather transparent anagram "Gerad." In the SNES translation, Celes claims it can't be anyone but Edgar when he refers to her as "My lady," though the fact that [[PaletteSwap "Gerad's" clothes are just brown versions of Edgar's royal blues]] didn't exactly help to keep his identity secret either.

Made more obvious in Japanese since Edgar explicitly uses the English word "lady" both normally and in disguise. Rather than a slipup as the Woolsey localization would suggest, it is implied he is intentionally giving clues to Celes and Sabin/Mash.
