* The PotterVerse has many examples of "Wizard X" and "Wizarding X": wizard chess, wizard crackers (as in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_cracker Christmas crackers]]), [[FunWithAcronyms Ordinary Wizarding Levels]], etc. The collective term for magical society is the "Wizarding World". (One particularly weird example is the name of Fred and George Weasley's shop, "Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes." It does ''sound'' slightly better than just "Weasleys' Wheezes," but the "Wizard" is completely unnecessary for both characters and readers, because it's in a center of the Wizarding World and not even accessible to Muggles.)

** When the RAF was formed, one suggestion was to take naval ranks and prefix them with "Air". So someone now called a Wing Commander would have been an Air Commander (not to be confused with Air Commodore, which is a thing). With that precedent, Travis would probably have been answerable to a Space Group Captain.

* Abundantly common in both the defunct ''StarWarsLegends'' as well as the current rebooted StarWarsExpandedUniverse of comics and novels.. To whit, "I've been doing this since before you were in space diapers" from ''StarWarsAftermath'' among others.

* Various stages in the VideoGame/RhythmHeaven series are random things set in space, usually with "Space" or "Cosmic" added to it. Examples include Space Dance, Cosmic Dance, Cosmic Rhythm Rally, Space Soccer (and Space Soccer 2), and Spaceball. Note that them being set in space bears zero gameplay relevance in any of them--they could've all been set on the ground and would make just as much sense. There is also a downplayed example with Air Rally in ''Rhythm Heaven Fever'', a badminton match set in the sky where the players ride on separate planes. In this case, there ''is'' a gameplay element to the setting, as the distance between the players changes drastically, and you can't retrieve a birdie you've missed.

* In the Jodoverse (which includes such series as ''The Incal'', ''The Caste of the Metabarons'' and ''The Technopriests''), a far-future science-fantasy dystopia, characters sometimes refers to persons and use exclamations familiar to contemporary readers, but qualify them with the prefix paleo-. One has to wonder why they feel the need to refer to Paleo-Marx and Paleo-Christ instead of simply using their names, call someone Paleobitch and so on, unless there are several versions of these persons and concepts, which are in turn associated with different eras. There is nothing to indicate that the latter is the case.
