* Plenty of supers in the WhateleyUniverse, including notorious supervillain Dr. Diabolik and his children Jadis Diabolik and Mal Diabolik. Jadis even moreso, because she suspects that her mother is actually the White Witch, and Jadis is the name of the White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia.

* When Datu from ''WereAlive'' meets Samantha in the arena she is very stoic about their fate. She eventually tells him that she "lost Hope." When Datu tries to reassure her, she tells him that she meant her daughter, whose name is Hope. She left her behind when their building got overrun by zombies. Later, [[spoiler: after Samnatha's death,]] Datu becomes extremely [[CynicismCatalyst bleak and fatalistic.]] He's doesn't really pull out of it until Michael, Pegs and Kelly return from the Colony, having found Hope.

** Once you get down to it, the entire cast fits in some way or another. The main character is named Ruby Rose, and is associated with [[ColorMotif red]] and [[FlowerMotif roses]]. Weiss Schnee literally translates to [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] in German, [[FairytaleMotifs which she is themed around]]. Blake is a first name generally [[TomboyishName given to boys]] that means "black" in Old English, also alluding to her ColorMotif; in addition, her last name Belladonna refers to the the Creator/{{Disney}} adaptation of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. Finally, Yang Xiao Long translates to roughly "Small Sun Dragon" in Chinese, hinting at both her ColorMotif (again) and her [[PlayingWithFire fire-based abilities]]. And that's just the main cast.

** Pyrrha Nikos' surname translates to "victor of the people", referencing her status as TheAce and her compassion for those weaker than her. (Her first name means 'flame-colored', and [[PropheticName predicts]] her [[SignificantGreenEyedRedhead bright red hair]].) Pyrrha is also said to be the name Achilles takes when he crossdresses to hide. [[spoiler:[[AchillesHeel She is also struck down the same way Achilles is]].]]
