* The Saberdolls from ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ'' are named after German tanks from WorldWarII (Tiger, Luchs, and Panther.) This also qualifies them for AnimalThemeNaming.

* In the {{Walkyverse}}, we have Ultra-Car, who probably shouldn't count since s/he was, originally, an actual car. However, in the AlternateUniverse SpinOff ''DumbingOfAge,'' human counterpart "Carla" plays it a bit straighter.

* The original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' has several members of the White Base crew derive their names from WWII-era fighter planes; Amuro Ray comes from the Mitsubishi [=A6M=] Zero ([=A6M=] in Japanese is "A-Roku-Mu", and "zero" is "Rei"); Kai Shiden from the Kawanishi [=N1K2-J=] Shiden Kai, and so forth. A few post-war planes are referenced as well. M'Quve's second in command, Uragang, is named for the Dassault Ouragan, first fielded in the early years of the ArabIsraeliConflict.

* Douglas and Martin in ''Radio/CabinPressure'' seem to get their names from [=McDonnell=]-Douglas and Lockheed-Martin, respectively. (Their plane is said to be a "Lockheed-[=McDonnell=]".) Hercules, meanwhile, is named after the military jet in-universe, and has brothers called Wellington and Harrier.
