** The children of Charlotte "Big Mom" Linlin almost all have names related to their Devil Fruit powers or official positions in Big Mom's territory. Cracker has the power to create biscuits with the Bisc-Bisc Fruit, Oven can heat himself up, Pudding is an expert chocolatier...really, it'd be faster to name the one child who ''doesn't'' fit this trope, [[spoiler: Lola, the WhiteSheep.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'': Lance Alvers, AKA Avalanche with the power to create earthquakes; and Todd Tolenski, AKA Toad, with the powers of, well, a frog. It should be noted that these are both {{Adaptation Name Change}}s; in the comics they're Dominikos Ioannis Petrakis and Mortimer Toynbee, respectively. (Which admittedly both sort of count on their own[[note]]"Petrakis" is related to the Greek word ''petros,'' meaning "rock," while "Toynbee" sounds a bit like "toad"[[/note]], but are at least more subtle.)



* Used in the ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Big Trouble in Little Sanchez", where Rick, Morty and Summer hunt a vampire in the school; it turns out he was impersonating a gym coach under the name. "Coach Feratu". It's lampshaded in TheStinger; the vampire leader calls out the use of this trope, saying that the PunnyName actually gave Coach Feratu away and any vampire infiltrating human society should just use a plain-sounding name.
