** Creator/YoshitakaAmano once bragged in an interview that the common Japanese pop cultural portrayal of Bahamut as being the King of the Dragons was invented by him, because he thought dragons were cool. (The mythological Bahamut is a sort of weird goat monster.)
** The writers of '' VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' actually got asked a lot by nerds why they used the name Orthros, a Greek dog monster, for a purple octopus character. It was eventually revealed to have been inspired by a purple octopus toy called Orthros that Creator/HironobuSakaguchi had as a child. (The English localisation changed his name to Ultros, avoiding the embarrassment.)

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': The Blood Ravens don't have as well-defined a theme as other SpaceMarine chapters (who are space Vikings/Mongols/Romans/Renaissance Italians...), so their names can go from Greek myth (Endymion, Apollo Diomedes) to referencing the North (Davian Thule, Indrick Boreale), Abrahamic religion (Gabriel Angelos, Thaddeus), both (Jonah Orion) and sometimes, CanisLatinicus (Martellus, Avitus).

* The [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad four enemy Mega Men]] in ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent''. They all have names taken from mythology; none of them are at all related to their elemental powers, and at least half of them are even the wrong gender. For example, the male Siarnaq is named after a Inuit goddess of ice. There is a bit more to the ThemeNaming, however, in that three out of four� along with another pair of characters, Prometheus and Pandora� share their names with moons orbiting Saturn (Aeolus is the only exception).

** Gilgamesh, in Sumerian mythology, was a great hero and king. The recurring Gilgamesh in ''Final Fantasy'' is a silly VillainWithAnFInEvil with a kabuki/classical Japanese aesthetic.

**Shiva. In Hindu mythology, a male god of war. In ''FF'', a sexy female 'ice queen'. Some theorise that this was punning off 'shiver'.
