* In a similar vein, more than a few critics noted the appropriateness of an Creator/AliceCooper B-movie being entitled ''Monster Dog''.

** Actually, it's even worse. "Forlorn Hope" is a military term coming from the Dutch "Verloren Hoop", "lost heap", referring to the first wave sent into attack who are pretty much doomed to die. Basically, it's "Camp WeHaveReserves".

*** Also, since ''Babylon'' is the name of the diplomatic project, it becomes a lot simpler to see why the Babylon stations had so many problems. We're outright told that ''Babylon''s 1 through 3 were destroyed by terrorist attacks, and 4 was [[spoiler: commandeered by Sinclair to battle the Shadows a thousand years ago]]. 1-3 were destroyed because there were people who were determined to prevent organised diplomacy happening for some reason. In any case, it's rather like the swamp castle in Monty Python's ''Search For The Holy Grail''. The station is seen as a neccesity, so they're gonna keep building stations, and the stations are named after the project.

* In ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', one supervillain is mentioned to have gotten his powers from a project called "Dark Force." It is immediately lampshaded by Coulson, who snarks that "nothing bad ever happens when you're working with something called 'dark force'."

* In ShortPacked!, Mr. and Mrs. Bean (no, not [[MrBean that one]]) are fundamentalist christians, and are homophobic. This is much to the disappointment of their lesbian daughter Leslie. Near the end of the comic's run, Leslie's fiancee Robin calls then out on this, naming their daughter Leslie Bean. Apparently, it's a family name.

* TheAsylum [[TheMockbuster movie]] ''[[http://www.thefilmcatalogue.com/catalog/FilmDetail.php?id=9424 Titanic 2]]'' features a shipping magnate not only building a second ''Titanic'' [[TemptingFate but also setting its maiden voyage on the 100th anniversary of the original disaster and having it traverse]] ''[[TemptingFate the exact same route of the original]]'' (though in the opposite direction). Somehow, things go even ''worse'' than in the original voyage: the ship is slammed by an iceberg ''carried by a tsunami'' and later is hit by a ''second'' "mega tsunami". It ends with the female lead as the sole survivor. And this is played ''100% straight''.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'''s Kingdom of Zeal named their generator the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammon Mammon]] Machine. The original Japanese name was only-slightly-less-ominous "majinki", or "Demon God Device". [[SarcasmMode Surprisingly]], the planet-eating EldritchAbomination the generator was getting its energy from ended up destroying Zeal first.

* The Purple Man, evil mind-controller and one of Marvel's most sadistic supervillains, is named Zebediah Killgrave. In an issue ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}'', Kirsten asks Matt if his parents just assumed he'd grow up to be evil. Matt quips back that "We call it the ''Victor von Doom'' paradox".

* Happens in ''Lord Forecastle'', one of ''{{Webcomic/Erfworld}}'''s side stories. The first five paragraphs describe the flagship HMS Superbia commanded by Royal Lord Admiral Hubris Unsinkable setting sail to enemy territory, no one gets to hear about the ship or the admiral again. The succeding flagship gets named HMS Hubris Unsinkable, sharing the same fate, and the one succeding it HMS Hubris Unsinkable II.
