* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'' has Shi-Long Lang ordering his subordinates to count off. They do so in order...then Lang subverts this trope by telling them they did it wrong and they're all supposed to count off "1", reminding them that [[AFatherToHisMen they're all "number 1" in his book]]. They do it right in a later case.

* In 'Film/Pride', this trope is subverted, as it isn't an identifier - when Johnathan Blake describes his diagnosis with HIV in the early days of its discovery, doctors assigned names to diagnosed patients, before they stopped when the numbers got too large. "I'm Number 2".

* On ''Series/DarkMatter'', the amnesiac crew of the ''Raza'' adopt numbers one through six as names as a way of identifying themselves/each other. Even after learning their real names they stick with the numbers to dissociate from their pasts.

* Happens a few times in the ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Vorkosigan]]'' universe. In ''Labyrinth'', Miles encounters a genetic construct named Nine; in ''Ethan of Athos'', the fugitive they're chasing is named L-X-10-Terran-C (Terrence Cee as a nickname,) who also had a sister/mate named J-X-Ceta-9 (Janine.) Also turned up in ''Falling Free''; as genetically designed mass-produced free-fall dwellers, many of the original quaddies had names that were adaptations of their serial numbers (eg TNY became Tony, CLR became Claire, etc.)
