* 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.

* Due to their status as HumanCattle, every farm child in ''Manga/ThePromisedNeverland'' is given an ID code, with the format and location varying between farms. However, it's only the demons who refer to them by those numbers. They are given actual names, and the non-demon characters refer to them by those names.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx'', Zero Two is known by her numbered designation, whereas everyone else in Plantation 13 have actual names. Even so, those with names are only a very small step above this trope, as they are based on alternative readings of their respective numbers (invented by Hiro). [[spoiler:It's later revealed that all Parasites are identified by their designation, and Hiro's group are an anomaly for having adopted nicknames - another team comments that such a thing seems pointless]].
** Episode 13 [[spoiler: reveals that the above example is actually subverted, since Zero Two's name was also invented by Hiro. He briefly considered {{Oni}} as a name, but quickly thought better of it.]]

* The entire KND in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' subscribes to this. Its operatives refer to one another by their given "numbuhs" in all except the most dire situations. Rather unusually for this trope, the numbers are self-assigned. This has led to Numbuh 65.3, Numbuh 74.329, and [[GeniusBonus Numbuh T]], amongst others. As for the main characters in Sector V, their real names either include their respective numbers or at least reference them: Nigel ''Uno'' (Spanish for "one"), Hoagie P. Gilligan, ''Jr.'' (being Numbuh 2), Kuki ''Sanban'' (Japanese for "third"), Wallabee ''[[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]]'' (as in the Fab ''Four''), and Abigail ''Lincoln'' (UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln appears on the American ''five''-dollar bill).

* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' is a gynoid given the model number XJ-9 [[MeaningfulRename who decided to call herself]] [[IJustWantToBeNormal the more human-seeming "Jenny Wakeman"]]. Her [[TrulySingleParent mother/creator]] still calls her "XJ-9" most of the time, though with her [[MotherlyScientist motherly tone]] it doesn't really come off as degrading. Jenny's eight "sisters" are numbered -- you guessed it -- XJ-1 through XJ-8.

* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' has Agent Six. Unlike many other examples this is not a demeaning tag, it's a RANK. The thing they are ranking? The DEADLIEST PEOPLE ON THE PLANET. To give an idea of what sort of people are on this list, Dos can fight evenly against both Six (weilding two blades that can pierce anything) and Rex (using two giant super axes) with just a walking stick for over a minute. As Dos is an assassin, he prefers not to enter combat, and as such doesn't carry weapons. If he did, he probably would have won. Three has super human strength. IV can use his bandages like living snares and whips, and can crush rocks with them. Five uses a guitar as her weapon, and is skilled enough with the instrument to kill oponents in melee without using a modified version.

* Played straight in a very positive light in ''Series/UltramanTaro''. It forms the intro line to Taro's theme!
--->"TARO! ULTRAMAN NUMBER SIX!"



* The ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' has Ultraseven, and his son is named Ultraman Zero. Why Zero, and not six or eight? RuleOfCool!
