* ''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).

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'''s Dr. Doofenshmirtz mentioned he loved giving nicknames. He calls Perry "Mr. Duckbill Face", and Major Monogram "Monobrow" ("because he has...that thing where..."), and he calls Carl "Dr. Coconut."... ("Yeah. Sometimes, I wish I didn't know so much.")

* Toph from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Oddly, she doesn't use nicknames nearly [[NeverLiveItDown as often]] as [[{{Fanon}} fans seem to think.]] "Twinkle Toes" is really the only nickname she ever sticks with. Others such as "the Pebble," "Snoozles", "Sheddy," "Sugar Queen", "Madame Fussy-Britches" and "Sweetness" are all one timers.

** A flashback in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' shows that some things never change; even after 28 years, Tolph was still calling Aang "Twinkle Toes" [[EmbarrassingNickname in spite of his protests.]] [[spoiler: And 70 years later, Korra inherits the nickname.]]

* Lavi in ''Anime/DGrayMan'' calls his BadassGrandpa mentor "Panda," Krory the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent not-actually-a-vampire]] "Kro-chan" ("Krorykins" in the English version), Kanda the epic BadAss by his EmbarrassingFirstName Yu, and occasionally calls Allen "[[BerserkButton Beansprout]]." Needless to say, said characters do not usually appreciate this.
