* From ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Dr. John Hix, Unseen University's head of [[InsistentTerminology totally-not-necromancy]], whose real name is actually [[XtremeKoolLetterZ Hicks]]. However, he's not really a threat, as his [[TokenEvilTeammate acts of evil]] fall squarely into PokeThePoodle territory [[RunningGag by university statute]].

* ''Literature/SeptimusHeap'' has this several times. In the first book, The Hunter, a ScarilyCompetentTracker who hunts fugitives and [[TheDeterminator doesn't stop]] [[SuperPersistentPredator till they're dead]], is named Gerald. He considers this an EmbarrassingFirstName and doesn't like people knowing about it.

* The giant monster player-characters of the coin-op ''{{VideoGame/Rampage}}'' are George (giant gorilla), [[PunnyName Lizzie]] (lizard) and Ralph (werewolf). The latter (along with the nature of ''Rampage'') may have been part of the inspiration for ''Disney/WreckItRalph''.

* The ''Literature/EndersGame'' series features a running subplot involving the protagonist's frighteningly intelligent, utterly sociopathic older brother, who eventually manages to become the honest-to-God Ruler of the World through a series of expert political gambits that see him appointed leader of Earth's unified world government. His name? Uh..."Peter Wiggin". Yes, an evil world dictator named "Peter Wiggin".

* Zig-zagged with ''Literature/TheWanderingInn''[='=]s Necromancer. His current name is the suitably eldritch-sounding Az'kerash, but it is quickly revealed that his true name before he started his reign of terror was the very normal Perril Chandler… but then again, his (few) friends already shortened Perril as "[[MeaningfulName Peril]]".

* Meg, Tom, and [[spoiler:Ruby]] in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' are the only demons shown that don't have demonic-sounding names. In Meg's case, at least, it's not her real name.
