* His Imperial Majesty Joshua Abraham Norton the First of these United States and Protector of Mexico, Saint Second Class of the [[UsefulNotes/{{Discordianism}} Discordian Religion]], Patron Saint of the Joshua Norton Cabal, Begotten Son of Eris. Pretty short relative to some actual monarchs, but none the less impressive for a man whose only qualification was being a CloudCuckooLander of the highest order. Even more impressive is the fact that his self-appointed title of Emperor was actually respected to some degree, at least in San Francisco.

** Autochthonia probably takes the cake, though, at least with one of the major segments of society: [[AC: The Five Magnificent Sodalities of Penultimate Truth and Intransigent Gospel]], who are basically Warhammer 40,000 Techpriests (complete with reciting long prayers to the Great Maker before so much as turning on a light). Each of said Five Magnificent Sodalities has its own flowery name: the aforementioned lamp-lighters are properly referred to as [[AC:The Glorious Luminors of the Brilliant Rapture]], for example.

* In ''Literature/LineOfDelirium'', TheEmperor has a number of titles that are typically recited at official events, including "Ruler of Endoria and Terra, Protector of Gorra, Guardian of Tauri, Sovereign of the colonies". The one title that no longer applies is "Father of the Three Sisters", as the three colonies of the Shedar System were invaded by the Sakkra and then bombarded with meson bombs on the Emperor's orders.

The first and greatest of them, Settra, has a list that it takes his herald ''two hours'' to recite, usually shortened to "the Imperishable." After his fantastic showing in The End Times, fans at 1d4chan have [[https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Settra_the_Imperishable summarized it]] with "Settra the Imperishable, Settra the Incorruptible, Settra Da Best."
** 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 [[AC: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 [[AC:the Anointed, the Favored Son of Chaos, the Scourge of the World.]]
** And let's not forget the [[BigGood Big]] ''[[BigGood Good]]'' of the setting: [[AC:Emperor Karl Franz I von Holswig-Schliestein, Elector Count and Grand Prince of Reikland, Prince of Altdorf, and Count of the West March.]]
