** Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka sounds as scary as he is, with added [[FunetikAksent K's]], [[RuleOfCool Kool letterz]], and [[UpToEleven improved difficulty pronunciation]]. Also helps that the "Mag Uruk Thraka" part means "I am Slaughter".

* 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.

* A subversion, [[Anime/PaniPoniDash Tsurugi Inugami's]] name has the deadliness of a [[EveryJapaneseSwordIsAKatana Tsurugi]] and the Mythological Animalness of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inugami Inugami]]. The only problem is that he is not one bit as {{Badass}} as his name implies.

* {{Mecha}} war RPG/Minis-game/novel series ''TableTopGame/BattleTech'' features ''Gray''son ''"Death"'' Carlyle, who builds one of the most feared mercenary units in the 'verse out of nothing (And sensibly names the unit after himself: The Gray Death Legion). He gets his first 'mech for the unit by intimidating its pilot into surrender with nothing more than a single-shot shoulder-fired missile launcher that ordinarily wouldn't be enough to scratch the thing's paint. (And later marries her. The pilot, not the 'Mech.) This 'verse also features similarly {{Badass}} mercs ''Mor''gan ''Kell'', Jaime ''Wolf'', et cetera.

** The trope is lampshaded with his ''ComicBook/UltimateFasticFour'' counterpart, Nihil. Reed's (rather primitive) [[TranslatorMicrobes translation device]] renders his name as things like "I annihilate" and "I am nihilist" before they start using Nihil's own, more advanced translators. Everyone agrees that the original translations, faulty as they are, are a bad sign.
