* ''WelkinWeasels'' features the Grand Inquisitor Torca Marda. It's got the hard K sound in the middle, it's not quite an R-ending but it sounds close to one, ''and'' it's a ShoutOut to Tomas de Torquemarda, the infamous RealLife head of the Spanish Inquisition.

* In ''Webcomic/Starslip'', a character questions whether a certain CEO is really all that bad. I mean, how much can you tell from a name like Archcount Obdrath von Lucifuge? "His name's, like, Lord Murdertron or something."

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': Eina-Afa ("Synthetic Wind") is the ten-million year old Oafan AI in charge of a space station the size of a planet. She changed her name to to T'kkkuts-Afa at some point, which means "Broken Wind." That is not a fart joke. The word "t'kkkuts" is an Oafan curse, denoting something broken or destructive. Afa means "wind," and has religious connotations, such as "unmoved mover" and "God." So while a literal translation of her name is Broken Wind, a more ''useful'' one is "Angry God."

* Nrvnsqr Chaos in ''{{Tsukihime}}''. Name looks unpronounceable, but it's actually 'Nero Chaos' so he doesn't get that one, technically. Hard K sound though. Plus, his most used name is generally 'Chaos,' a name he was given because he's just that evil as far as the Church is concerned. They ''really'' hate him. So that's both Infernal and Noun. Oh, and technically it's a title, as his real/original name is actually rather ordinary. As far as he's concerned, though, he doesn't really have a name anymore and merely responds to what people call him. It happens when you start tossing your identity away.

* PandoraHearts has the B- Rabbit. Doesn't seem like something that should be terrifying, right? Wrong. Unlike the KillerRabbit usually PlayedForLaughs this rabbit is A: the size of a small car, and B: the most powerful force of destruction known to the world. FluffyTheTerrible? oh no. Not when the meaning of the B is revealed. The full title/name is [[spoiler:Oz]] the Bloodstained Black Rabbit. BewareTheNiceOnes indeed.

* [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Cinder Fall (ashes and fall, always a winning combination) and Mercury Black (A very poisonous metal, and the Black surname)]]. You gotta wonder [[WhatDidYouExpectWhenYouNamedIt what were their parents thinking when picking their names...]]

* Dr. Diabolik of the WhateleyUniverse. You've got the K-word, the evil adjective, the evil title... For extra credit, his daughter is named Jadis (like the White Witch in ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'') and his son is named Malachai, Mal for short. Their codenames are She-Beast and Techno-Devil. You do the math.
