Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Imp uses nicknaming as a tactic to get superheroes (or villains) she's dealing with angry at her. At least some of these nicknames end up sticking, to the dismay of those so named. Some nicknames are Superhawk becomes Chickenhawk, Paradigm becomes Pair of Dimes, and Polarstorm becomes Fuzzy Wuzzy (As he looks like a polar bear).

* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': John Sheppard does a similar thing with all the Wraith they meet, including Steve, Bob, Todd, and Michael. (The Wraith either don't have names or don't tell Humans their names, so Sheppard generally gives them very ordinary, human nicknames to make up for it). Lt. Ford tries to name a lot of things, but he is repeatedly shot down by the master (aforementioned [[BadAss John Sheppard]]), most notably in the debate between calling the Lantian Shuttle "Gate Ship" (It's a ship that goes through the 'Gate!) or Sheppard's version: Puddle Jumper. Sheppard wins out in the end. The "Gate Ship" name turns out to be a favorite of [[InsufferableGenius McCay]]'s, and, in an alternate timeline, this is the name he gives to the one created by Janus. Also, it's implied that this is the original Lantian name for the craft.

** In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Captain America is "Old Man" (who is technically 70+ years old), as well as "Capsicle" (due to his status as a HumanPopsicle). Thor is "Film/{{Point Break|1991}}" (because of his long blond hair and beard, which look similar to Creator/PatrickSwayze in that movie). Hawkeye is "[[LordOfTheRings Legolas]]" (being an archer). Loki is "Reindeer Games" (due to the helmet) and "Rock of Ages" (due to his regalia). Loki's staff is "the Glowstick of Destiny" (which glows and mind controls people).
