* Well, [[BigBad Xykon]] from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' certainly thinks so. He chose the name Xykon for himself after meeting a man named [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Xavion who wanted to recruit him]] for [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} his team of sorcerers]], and thought the name "Xavion" sounded cool.

* Amazons speech assistent "Alexa" is probably an aversion, as the hard "X" should make it easy
to recognize in verbal commands, not cool. (Also an allusion to the library of Alexandria.)

* The Xbox line of game consoles is the highest profile example in all of video gaming. Although its ancestor, the 8-bit MSX computer line, invoked this trope all the way back in the 1980s. Apparently the single X lost its luster, though, so they [[SequelEscalation added another one]] for the 2017 edition, the "Xbox One X."

*** For NVIDIA, up until 2014 the X moniker meant it was a high end card, usually marketed to gamers: the entry level card was the Geforce GT 730, but the mid-range card was the GTX 750; this was dropped with the Geforce 900 series, which always uses the GTX moniker regardless of whether it's a humble GTX 950 or a massive GTX 1080. (However, they didn't replace the leading 9 with a leading Roman X -- this is because they would otherwise not have the chance of selling a Geforce GTX Full HD 1080p card).

** Acura's compact hot-hatch is the RSX. Its three SUV models are the MDX, the RDX, and the ZDX. Its new entry level sedan is the ILX. And of course its sports car was the NSX. A new NSX model is coming around 2015.
