* Adolf Anime/{{K}} Weismann: Wolf? Check. Famous killer? Check. K sound? [[MysteriousMiddleInitial Check so hard]] it's the [[OneLetterTitle name of the show]]. The V sound of the German W gives it a kick as well. Perfect for the guy with the [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Sephiroth hair]] who watches the heroes from an ominous blimp, while dancing with what looks like a ''corpse''. On top of all that? [[spoiler: it's a complete subversion. That was all [[GrandTheftMe someone else]]. He's the sweetest, kindest person in the whole show. A ridiculously {{Moe}} NonActionGuy who gives several characters an inexplicable desire to ''cook for him'' just by being so ''cute''.]] But you never do find out what the Anime/{{K}} stands for.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baldur_von_Schirach Baldur Benedikt von Schirach]], a prominent Nazi, head of the [[ChildSoldiers Hitler-Jugend]] and Gauleiter of Vienna.

* Another LukeNounverber example comes with Nounverber-style titles for all Dungeoneering bosses in ''RuneScape''. There are bosses with names like Plane-freezer Lakhrahnaz, Shadow-forger Ihlakhizan, Night-gazer Khighorahk, Flesh-spoiler Haasghenahk, To'Kash the Bloodchiller, Har'Lakk the Riftsplitter, Bal'Lak the Pummeller, and the behemoths don't really lack in the threatening name department either. After all, facing a giant hulking beast called the Hope devourer can cause a bit of a fright. Jagex took these titles UpToEleven and gave us ''World-gorger'' Shukarhazh. Due to the Stalkers being TheUnpronounceable, and attempts at pronouncing these often resulting in lots of [[BlackSpeech guttural sounds]] certainly doesn't detract from the value.
