* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', the [=ODSTs=] (Orbital Drop Shock Troopers) of the 105th Shock Troops Division are more commonly known as "Helljumpers", due to how hot their drop pods became when falling through the atmosphere.

* ''StrikeWitches'': The 501st Joint Fighter Wing, better known as the Strike Witches. The Blu-ray booklet also elaborates on other joint fighter wings, each with their own nicknames. The 502nd is known as the "Brave Witches," and goes ''further'' with "Break Witches" as an extension of the original nickname due to their penchant for destroying Striker Units. The 503rd is called the "Typhoon Witches"; the 504th "Ardor Witches"; the 505th "Mirage Witches"; the 506th "Noble Witches"; the 507th "Silent Witches"; the 508th "Mighty Witches"...plus "Glorious Witches" for HMW, "Storm Witches" for the Afrikacorps, and "{{Shinigami}}" for Fuso's 42nd Joint Fighter Corps.

** A more conventional squadron from ''7'' was Diamond Force, made up of the most elite military pilots on the 7th Fleet. Over the course of the series it loses some members, the survivors of which are re-organized into Emerald Force. ** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' has another Skull Squadron (named in honor of the original).

** ''Star Wars'' gives us squadron names such as [[XWingSeries Rogue Squadron, Wraith Squadron]], Twin Suns Squadron, the Tierfon Yellow Aces, or the Screaming Wookiee Squadron. The Rebel Alliance seems to eschew numerical designations altogether, and the most generic they get are color-based names (Red Group, Gold Squadron) for ad-hoc starfighter organizations. TheEmpire usually avoids this, or at least we don't hear about it very often, but the 501st Legion Division is commonly known as Vader's Fist. The One-Eighty-First squadron was called the One-Eighty-Worst until Fel shaped it up, at which point it was usually called "One-Eighty-First" in respectful tones, by Imperial and Rebel pilots alike.

Various edits.
* The Creator/UltimateSidemen usually break up into two teams of sorts in ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV Grand Theft Auto Online]]'' races involving supercars; the Adder Gang (comprised of WebVideo/KSIOlajidebt, WebVideo/{{Wroetoshaw}}, TBJZL, and Vikkstar123 [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin driving the Truffade Adder]], the car with the highest top speed in the game) and the Zentorno Gang/"Zentorbros" (comprised of Behzinga, miniminter/Real Nimrod, and Zerkaa [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin driving the Pegassi Zentorno]], the second-fastest-accelerating car in the game[[labelnote:*]]behind the Coil Voltic[[/labelnote]] that has better handling than the Adder).

* ''PumpkinScissors'': Imperial Army State Section III, aka "Pumpkin Scissors". Rather subversive, seeing as they're a war relief unit, rather than a combat force.

* "The Rats of Tobruk". During WorldWarTwo, [[AussiesWithArtillery Australian troops]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome managed to halt a blitzkrieg launched by Rommel's Afrika Corps (the first Allied force to do so)]] and [[TheSiege subsequently spent over six months besieged in the city of Tobruk]] in eastern UsefulNotes/{{Libya}}. They survived first by hiding out in their intricate tunnel system and then by going on highly-cooridinated offensives against their besiegers. Nazi radio broadcaster [[PropagandaMachine Lord Haw-Haw]] tried to discourage the defenders by refering to them as "poor desert rats of Tobruk". [[AppropriatedAppellation The Aussies took the name]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rats_of_Tobruk and ran with it.]]
