* ''ComicBook/IronMan'' does it a lot in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''.
** To be exact, 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).

* Cisco from ''Series/TheFlash2014'' comes up with nicknames for all of [[MythologyGag the villains Barry comes across]] (i.e. Multiplex, Captain Cold, Mist, the Reverse Flash, etc.). In some cases, the meta-humans themselves like Cisco's nicknames to adopt them. Leonard Snart chooses to call himself "Cold" (dropping the "Captain") because of Cisco. When Hartley shows up claiming to have come up with a nickname for himself (Pied Piper), Cisco angrily replies that it's his job to come up with nicknames, then grudgingly admits that this one is pretty good. When Caitlin attempts to call Roy G. Bivolo "Rainbow Raider" (his name in the comics), Cisco says that's dumb and calls him Prism (Roy prefers Rainbow Raider). Snart's sister even asks Cisco to give her a nickname, so he grudgingly calls her Golden Glider (especially since she's wielding a weapon he designed, just like her brother). When it comes time to name [[spoiler:himself]], it's Barry who suggests the name [[spoiler:Vibe]], and he likes it. When Eliza Harmon gains super speed and becomes a criminal, Cisco briefly calls her "Bad Flash" before groaning at how lame that was. When he finds out Eliza calls herself "Trajectory", he complains.
