* Played, justifiably, straight in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series (alongside LastNameBasis and literal instances of DoNotCallMePaul). Regardless of social class and rank, if the Duke of Taunton likes you, you are encouraged to address him familiarly. If he ''doesn't'' like you "You call me as, 'Your Grace', damn you." His servants are referred to in accordance with their positions: the [[SupremeChef Cook]] and the [[KindlyHousekeeper Housekeeper]] take a "Mrs" and Lady Crispin's lady's-maid is, although married, "Miss Stephens" to all save Lady Crispin, who is allowed to call her by her Christian name. The footmen are addressed by Christian name. The ducal butler is, to all save the seniormost members of The Family, "Mister" Viney. (To the Duke, he's simply "Viney" except when he's "Paul." Mr. Viney [[DoNotCallMePaul does not like it when this happens]]: not because of the name, but because this means the Duke is about to talk to him churchwarden to churchwarden, or as captain of the local cricket side to vice-captain, and Complications Are Sure To Ensue.)

* Inverted in ArTonelico2. Cloche is painfully aware of her title and this is precisely why she doesn't want her closest friends using it. Everyone else, though, has to call her 'Lady' or 'Holy Maiden'.

** Subverted in the sense that Harold would like to be referred to as Mr. Finch (this is how he first introduces himself to Reese in the Pilot) but no one does. Carter just calls him Finch, without the mister. Reese and Shaw vary between calling him Finch and Harold. Root pretty insistently calls him Harold, or sometimes Harry. Fusco calls him Glasses.
