** [[HypocriticalHumor Keep in mind that this is the villain]], [[spoiler:a bunny named "Boingo"]], saying this to Keith.
* Some Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon villains have names like this. Yeah, some of them have names like [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Grimhilde]], [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]], and [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]], but others have names like [[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} Ratcliffe]] ([[HistoricalDomainCharacter who was actually a real guy]]), [[Disney/{{Tarzan}} Clayton]], and [[Disney/{{Zootopia}} Kevin and Raymond]]. Other villains have names that sound "foreign" in the Anglosphere but are unremarkable in the countries where the films take place, like [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Claude Frollo]], [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]], and [[spoiler:[[Disney/{{Frozen}} Hans]]]].

* During Issue #9 ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld,'' players are introduced to the Black Signal, the disembodied sentience commanding the [[TheVirus Filth]] in Tokyo and the voice of [[EldritchAbomination the Dreamers]] on Earth. However, despite a fanciful number of titles including "The Word Virus," "The Brain Pathogen Grammar," and "The Smoking Mirror," he's actually very upfront in revealing that his real name is, in fact... John.

* John Sheppard of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' [[InvokedTrope played]] this trope with the Wraith whether they wanted it or not, which gave us such villains (or in one case, an AntiVillain) as Steve, [[BigBad Michael]], Bob, [[NobleDemon Todd]] and Kenny. The Wraith never bothered to reveal their true names to the humans, so the monickers stuck.
