* Literature/TheQuran opens "In the name of Allah, the All Beneficent, The Most Merciful in Essence, The Compassionate, The Most Gracious..." and according to Islam, although there's no definitive list, there's another 95 attributes of God.

Even those religions which feature more than one deity often give each deity many names and titles; for instance, Myth/ClassicalMythology gives us Zeus Meilichios, Zeus Chthonios, Zeus Plousios, and so on, each referring to a different aspect of Zeus; the same is true of Athena Parthenos, Tritogeneia, Ageleia, Itonia, Athena Ergane, Athena Polias...

And for even more laughs, it turns out that the last two were made up by Celestia as a joke.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Daniel and Rayana, the divine -and divine--and very ancient- rulers ancient--rulers of Avalon, have a very long list of titles. They sometimes enjoy enumerating them to newcomers only to see the looks on their faces:
-->'''Daniel:''' “Sir [[AC:Sir Daniel Joseph O’Brien, Knight of the Crown, Ranger Prime of the Imperial Rangers, Clan Lord of the O’Briens, King of Primastra, Lord of Ten Billion Suns, Ruler of the Shining Realm, His Most Cosmic Majesty, Emperor of Avalon. Avalon.]] I am the government here. Welcome to my place. Can I get you anything?”\\
anything?\\
'''Rayana:''' “Pardon Pardon my husband’s exploitation of his myriad titles for amusement value. He likes messing with people like that sometimes. I’m Dame [[AC:Dame Rayana Kylise Hart-O’Brien, Knight Commander of the Centre for Covert Multi-Dimensional Operations, Avalon Imperial University Mistress of Musical Arcanum, Imperial Sorceress Supreme, Grand Duchess of Narya, Lady of Mothers’ Fury, Her Most Mystic Majesty, Witch Queen of Avalon.

Everywhere.]] Did we mention that she hates titles?
* In the ''FanFic/TheNonBronyverse'' fanfic ''TD the Alicorn Princess'', TD's full title is "Princess [[AC:Princess of Snark, Sarcasm, Education, Foal Services, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Pastries]]". Pastries]].]] The last one particularly irks Celestia.
* In ''FanFic/TheAssumptionOfApplejackOrAppletheosis'', Princess Celestia's full name, titles included, is ''Lady [[AC:Lady of the Dawn, Her Serene Immortal Highness of Equestria, Daughter of Harmony and Endless Light of Life, Mother and Guide of the Herd, Once-Bearer of Kindness, Laughter, and Magic, Duchess of Canterlot, Van Hoover, and Cloudsdale, Queen of the Scattered Clouds, the Very High and Very Powerful Princess Celestia.''
]]
** Similarly, Princess Luna's full name, titles included, is ''Lady [[AC:Lady of the Night, Her Serene Immortal Highness of Equestria, Daughter of Harmony and Conqueror of the Midnight Skies, Avenger of the Herd, Once-Bearer of Honesty, Generosity, and Loyalty, Duchess of Zebrica, Stalliongrad, and Manehatten, Queen of the Distant Isles, the Very High and Very Powerful Princess Luna.''
]]
* Navarone collects a bunch of titles over the course of ''FanFic/DiariesOfAMadman'', and at one point could claim to call himself as ''Sir [[AC:Sir Navarone, Knight of the Lunar Order, Defender of Harmony, Royal Savior, Hero of the Changelings, and Liberator of Egypt.''
]]
* In ''Where Cold Winds Blow'', Luna introduces Twilight to Lord Arctis as "Lady [[AC:Lady Twilight Sparkle [=BMg=], Celestia’s personal student and Her representative, the Countess of the Everfree, the Bearer of the Element of Magic, Discordsbane and Companion to Sun and Moon", Moon]], which she only remembers because it actually is written on a card. And for even more laughs, it turns out that the last two were made up by Celestia as a joke.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' fanfic ''Attack of the 50-Ft Half-Klingon'' the holodeck character played by Tom Paris is "Captain [[AC:Captain Proton: Spaceman First Class, Protector of Earth, Scourge of Intergalactic Evil, Astrogator of Action, Prince of Planeteers, Lord of the Rings of Saturn, Man of the Day After Tomorrow, and Savior of a [[ScifiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale Statistically Insignificant Percentage of the Universe]]".

* ''FanFic/{{My Family and Other Equestrians}}'' has the way King Sombra refers to himself in the introduction of the book Blade Star reads in chapter 57: “Written by His [[AC:His Most Excellent Imperial Majesty, High King Sombra the Great. Sole Ruler and Emperor of the Grand Imperial Crystal Empire, and the Dominions, Territories and Dependents of the same. Commander in Chief of His Most Imperial Majesty’s Forces by Land and by Sea. First Minister of Imperial Crystal Legislature, Head of the Privy Council and High Lord of the Grand Judiciary and Star Chamber of the same. Governor of the Imperial First City of the Crystal Empire.

* In ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', the title character addresses legendary hero Maui as "Shapeshifter, Demigod of the Wind and Sea". Maui points out she forgot to add "Hero of Men" to that title.

** Averted by founder of the Agatean Empire One Sun Mirror. He was considered so awesome, he crossed the BishonenLine of LongList titles and was known simply as One Sun Mirror. Not even his ''tomb'' gives his titles - anyone who is in a position to find his tomb is going to know who he is just from the name alone.
*** Rather like Zhao Zheng, King of Qin and uniter/conqueror of China, styling himself simply "Shih Huangdi" or "First Emperor." Says it all. (He intended for all later emperors for all time to be styled Second Emperor, Third Emperor, etc., but there never was a Fourth -- the Qin dynasty fell and later dynasties did not follow the practice.)
** As of Raising Steam, we have His Grace, His Excellence, His Blackboard-Monitorship, the Duke of Ankh, Commander Sir Samuel Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, Lord of Ramkin Hall, King of the River. It is mentioned at the end of the book that Vetinari has run out of titles to give him!

Long after his death, Bilbo was turned into a fairytale character known as "Mad Baggins". Tolkien was a scholar of medieval Germanic languages, a culture that used titles rather than surnames to distinguish historical figures (Olaf ''Skullsplitter'' and Njal ''the Burnt''). Tolkien might have been suggesting that Bilbo is lapsing into the more "Norse" culture of Wilderland and starting to forget the "respectable Mr. Baggins" that he was at the start of his journey. Later in the story he comes to regret recklessly naming himself; Smaug deduces from "Barrel Rider" that he'd come from Lake-town, leading him to attack the town.

* Literature/JohnCarterOfMars has numerous egotistical {{Evil Overlord}}s as villains, which results in more than a few of these floating around. Particularly notable is the HighPriest of the PathOfInspiration: Matai Shang, Holy Hekkador of the Holy Therns, Father of the Therns, Brother of Issus, Master of Life and Death Upon Barsoom. The [[AGodAmI self-deified]] Issus is supposed to have ''over ninety'' titles, though mercifully only one (Goddess of Life Eternal) is generally used.
** John Carter himself is Dotar Sojat Chieftain of the Tharks, Prince of Helium, Jeddak of Jeddaks, Warlord of Mars.
* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}},'' [[PuppeteerParasite Yeerks]] have a name, a number, a pool and, if they're twins, an added "primary/lesser" designation. For example, [[BigBad Visser Three's]] real name is "Esplin Nine-Four-Double-Six Primary of the Sulp Niar Pool." The fact that the books always spell the numbers out doesn't help.
** The main Iskoort we meet is called "Guide, Grub of Skin-Seller, Brother of Memory-Wholesaler."
** Ketrans, too; [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien the Ellimist's]] birth name is "Azure Level, Seven Spar, Extension Two, Down-Messenger, Forty-one." Nobody actually ''uses'' those kinds of names, though; like most Ketrans he invented his own name, "Toomin," while "Ellimist" was essentially his screen name.
* In ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'' the gods of Egypt are especially prone to this--Sobek won't even talk to you unless you address him as "Lord Sobek, god of the crocodiles of the Nile, called Rager, son of Seth and his consort Neith, called the nurse of crocodiles." Ra also has so many variants that a priest spends five full minutes listing them before the protagonists are led away; the priest stands there listing them anyway, because the ritual is more important than their actual presence.
