* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'': The Emperor's [[PraetorianGuard Custodians]] earn middle names each time they do magnificent deeds. [[FourStarBadass Captain-General "Kitten"]] has a ridiculously long list of middle names that he earned from [[OnlySaneEmployee having to do all of his unit's actual work]] for the last 10,000 years. It's implied to have gone on for several ''minutes'' before the audience was let in on the gag, and he only got halfway to his last name.

* Implied, if thankfully not written out, in ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' - Emperor Felipe's list of titles is so long, it takes a priestess solid ten minutes to go through them all. He finds it immensely funny.

** Archaon the Everchosen, the current [[EvilOverlord Everchosen]] of [[TheLegionsOfHell the forces of Chaos]] and a strong contender for the BigBad of the setting, has quite a few titles, with Everchosen simply being the most important. They include Lord of the End Times, Chaos Incarnate, Herald of the Apocalypse, Warlord of the forces of Chaos United, Scourge of the Empire, Destroyer of Worlds, and most recently also Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse. In a BadassBoast he once gave, he also called himself "the Anointed, the Favored Son of Chaos, the Scourge of the World."

* In Germany and Austria, it is very possible for ordinary citizens with a wide range of academic degrees to have them legally put into their passports, business cards, driver's licenses, and other official documents, and to insist on being addressed as such. With the educational and legal system in the EU changing all of that, it's going to become more uncommon in the far future, but before the Lisbon Treaty (and even up until now), one can still meet, for example a Prof. Mag (FH). Müller, B.A., M.A., PhD. The Austrian armed forces extends this by honoring both military rank and academic title. It's quite possible for a Lance Corporal (Gefreiter - abbreviated Gfr.) to have an academic title and to insist upon being called that (and referring to himself as that when making a report) at all times, even to and by his superiors who do not possess any academic rank.
