Constance Montgomery, aka "Clash", is The Misfits' resident groupie who wishes she could join the band (despite having no musical abilities and being HollywoodToneDeaf).

She's a Misfits fangirl [[spoiler:who ends up joining the band]].

** Raya is the only Hologram who goes by a StageName. Her name is "Carmen" but "Raya" is a childhood nickname from her father. Jem uses a full-on AlterEgo--she's secretly Jerrica Benton, the manager of the band, but no one knows this outside of a few select individuals (mostly the band itself).

** The Stingers consists of: Rory Llewelyn as "Riot", Phoebe Ashe as "Rapture", and Ingrid Kruger as "Minx". Unlike The Misfits they don't complain about their names but then again Riot is the only name mentioned in the actual cartoon, and only his parents call him that.

* Sir Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, Jr. is better known as Sir MichaelCaine. Originally, he wanted his stage name to be Michael Scott, but that was taken. Pressed for a new one, he looked at a nearby cinema billboard and saw ''Film/TheCaineMutiny''. And the rest, as they say, is history. He jokes that if he had looked the other way, he would be Sir Michael One Hundred and One Dalmatians.

* ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'': Makoto is more known by her stage name "[=MakoP=]" than by her actual human name.
* ''Franchise/DragonBall'': Several fighters have used stage names or aliases for themselves.
** Mister Satan is a name he has earned after becoming world champion, now being named after his dojo Satan Castle. His real name is Mark, which is a pun to "akuma" ("devil").
** Piccolo uses the alias Ma Junior whenever he enters the Tenkaichi Budokai to hide his true identity as the reincarnation of the Great Demon King Piccolo. The "Ma" (マ) in "Ma Junior" is a pun to "Ma" (魔) which means "demon", making it sound like "Demon Junior".
** While it is unknown whether the name of human God possessed to enter the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai is actually named Shen or not, the name does serve as an alias for God. "Shen" (シェン) is a pun to "Shen" (神) from Shenlong, which uses the same kanji for "god". That alias serves as a hint for Son Goku to figure out who Shen really is.
** Subverted with Shin. When he enters the 25th Tenkaichi Budokai, he uses the name Shin (シン). Like in the case of Shen, it's a pun to "Shin" (神), which is part of the title called "Kaioshin". However, it is revealed much later during the run ''Super'' (over 20 years after his debut) that "Shin" (シン) is in fact his real name.
* ''Manga/ShouwaGenrokuRakugoShinjuu'' has Yotaro Yurakutei, which is the name he received as a rakugo student (and symbolically important, as he used to be in prison) and his stage name, as his real name is Kyoji.



* Several of the characters in ''Manga/SkipBeat'' have stage names. Being a series about show business, this is bound to happen. Most notably we see this with Ren Tsuruga, who uses a stage name [[spoiler: both to distance himself from his famous parents and to avoid facing his [[DarkAndTroubledPast Dark and Troubled Past]] until he's ready.]]
** Kuu Hiizuri apparently takes this very seriously, [[spoiler: a trait Ren probably inherited from him]], going so far as to have had an elaborate funeral for his stage name after he went back to using his real one.

*** The name "Hulk Hogan" was suggested by Vince [=McMahon=] Sr., and Hogan went along, despite feeling that the idea of an orange-skinned blonde-haired Irishman was kind of silly. He got way more over under the new name than anybody expected, but there was a slight hitch -- Vince's penchant for billing him as "The Incredible" Hulk Hogan caught the attention of MarvelComics, and they sued and won, taking the trademark for the name until Hogan bought it back more than two decades later.
