* In ''Literature/ParadoxBound'', the [[TheBlank Faceless Men]] have no names, only numbers. Those number do change, though, and are assigned on a case-by-case basis. All of them start with Zero in order to reinforce the idea that they're nothing.

* ''Literature/WatershipDown'' has Hrairoo, or Fiver. Rabbits can only count to four, so any number over that is "a great many", and "Hrair" can be translated as both "five" and "thousand". Weirdly, "Hrair" also means enemies, the thousand different species that prey on rabbits, so the mythical rabbit patriarch, El-ahrairah (Elil-hrair-rah), is the "prince of a thousand enemies."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/BloodBank'', the workers at the titular bank go by numbers, with One being the protagonist and Thirteen his rival. The dehumanizing aspect of this is discussed in-story when One rages against the systemic mistreatment of humans.

* On anonymous {{Imageboards}} like Website/FourChan and 8chan, users typically address each other by the numbers automatically assigned to the posts they make, such as >>189342. On some boards each user is also assigned an eight-symbol alphanumeric indicator (for example, 45a7ef1d), which stays unique within a single thread and can be used to indentify their posts. There is an option to use names and password-protected tripcodes, but this is generally frowned upon unless absolutely necessary. [[FandomBerserkButton Don't get used to it, name]][[PrecisionFStrike fag]].

* ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' has a StealthPun example: the three legendary birds are called Artic'''uno''', Zap'''dos''' and Mol'''tres'''. Apart from that, Mewtwo (as an experimental clone of Mew) fits the trope very well, and Dugtrio (a creature that comes into being when three Diglett combine) is a mild example. The latter is lampshaded in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon''.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' introduce the Ultra Beasts with codenames consisting of numbers; UB-03: Lighting, UB-02: Absorption, UB-05: Glutton, etc. Once the player captures them, they're given proper names that lack numbers.

Added DiffLines:

* All the spacefuture {{Super Soldier}}s in ''WebComic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' technically only have serial numbers, but they very rarely see any use outside of official paperwork. The main character is technically named D37-9E-B52, but was given the moniker "Commander Badass" for propaganda purposes. In his personal life, he goes either by his rank (Commander) or his chosen name Rock Lobster ([[Music/TheB52s "It was that or 'Love Shack'"]]).

* Stitch from ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' was originally called Experiment 626. In ''[[WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries The Series]]'', only Jumba calls him that. Same thing happens to [[Characters/LiloAndStitchExperiments the other 625 experiments]], to whom Lilo gives proper names after finding their one true place. Even then, Stitch's two immediate successors (627 and 628) were never given a name and still have this trope apply to them.

* ''Literature/{{Domina}}'': The character Silk admits this is not her real name; it's the last digit of a serial number for the body she is currently inhabiting, and means "six." In a variant, this isn't used to disrespect her, but to disrespect everyone ''else''. She says that no one is worthy of knowing [[IHaveManyNames any of her other names]].

Added DiffLines:

* Due to the sheer number of cells that live in the human body, many of the cells focused on in ''Manga/CellsAtWork'' don't actually have names; while they're more often than not referred to by [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep their species]], several of them have unit numbers on their uniforms to distinguish which one is which.
