* The Katyusha multiple rocket launcher was nicknamed "Stalin's organ" by the Germans in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII partly because the missile racks resembled a church organ, but also because of the terrible howling noise and destruction they caused.
* Giant hogweed, also known as "Stalin's revenge," grows as fast as [[AlienKudzu kudzu]], and its sap is a potent, insidious, slow-acting poison causing burns like mustard gas! It can kill kids who don't know better and tamper with it. It's also fifteen feet tall and grows in massive growths of hazardous shrubbery, like some toxic alien jungle. You have to wear a hazmat suit if you want to clear a patch of this plant monster. Fun fact: it's also related to poison hemlock, also known as "that plant they used to kill Creator/{{Socrates}}."

But only if they never abbreviate it to "Gus" (unless one has seen ''BreakingBad''), or, worse yet, [[Literature/JeevesAndWooster "Gussie"]]. Or, for that matter, "Auggie", but that's pretty uncommon. Named after Gaius Octavius UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}}, nephew of Julius Caesar and first emperor of Rome (generally remembered by history as one of the few good emperors... as long as you didn't happen to stand in his way, of course).

Added DiffLines:

** Koresh was actually aiming for the exact opposite effect, combining the name of the prophesied Israelite messiah's ancestor with that of the most famous non-Jewish messiah. Of course, if you didn't agree with his [[AGodAmI estimation of himself]], he was unintentionally playing this trope straight.
