* Ferid refers to Yuu and Mika with -chan attached to their names in ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd''. Given [[DepravedBisexual Ferid's]] [[{{Jerkass}} character]] it comes across as disturbing. He also calls them "lovely" or "dear" in chapter 43 (depending on the translation) and sometimes refers to Yuu as "beloved Yuu", "precious angel", or "precious princess" that Mika wants to rescue.

Usually, the nicer the pet name is, the worse the fate in store is. A form of CasualDangerDialog, and a menacing variation of FlirtingUnderFire. Some forms of TakeThatKiss function as a non-verbal variant. Generally a "milder" form of IHaveYouNowMyPretty. Casual or informal forms of someone's name (like Tom for Thomas) don't count as this. Contrast with HeyYou, where the use of inappropriate forms is meant as an insult. See also WithDueRespect, where using formal terms of respect implies the opposite. May be rebuffed with "TheyCallMeMisterTibbs."

* In ''TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', there's a thief in the pirate afterlife who is fond of saying "friend" in a way to suggest that he isn't your friend and probably shouldn't be trusted. He does point out that he is a thief, after all, though.
