* ''Series/GetSmart'' was a spoof of SpyFiction, in general. So naturally, the eponymous character (Maxwell Smart) would introduce himself this way whenever he met with a contact: "Smart... Maxwell Smart. CONTROL agent 86." The episode where he first meets 99's mother reveals that [[FunnyMoments he's even printed his name on his business card exactly the same way.]]
* The aforementioned Sally Lockhart example, from the television adaptations of the [[Literature/SallyLockhart novels]].
* In ''Mobile'', Michael Kitchen's character introduces himself by saying "The name's West, David West". Kitchen played Bill Tanner in two ''Film/JamesBond'' films.
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', when the Doctor signs on with UNIT at the end of "Spearhead from Space", the Brigadier points out that he doesn't even know the Doctor's name, which the Doctor then gives as "Smith, Doctor John Smith."
** In Dalek, when asked her name, Godard says "Godard, sir, Diana Godard."
** Lampshaded in "The Wedding of River Song", where Amy bursts into the room with a gun and looking every bit like a secret agent and identifies herself as "Pond, Amelia Pond".
* Played for laughs in an episode of ''Series/FullHouse'', in which a character who had lived in the Tanner's house many years ago consistently refers to himself as "Bond, Lou Bond," even pointing out his initials scratched in an attic wall: "B., L. B."
** And when introducing him to the girls, Danny screws it up by saying, "This is Lou, Bond Lou. (''{{beat}}'') [[LampshadeHanging I screwed that up, didn't I?]]"
