* Black Dragons in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are typically given intimidating names, incorporating sinister adjectives and nouns. Examples are Nefarion, Onyxia, and Sinestra. This even extends to morally ambiguous or outright good dragons like Wrathion and Ebyssion. Their former leader, Deathwing the Destroyer, is actually an subversion; his real name is Neltharion.
** This also extends to one [[{{Dracolich}} former]] Blue Dragon; Sindragosa, combining "sin", "cinder", and of course "dragon".
