* [[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. His first name ends with an R and sounds like something out of Myth/NorseMythology (or a [[BaldursGate Fantasy series]]), his middle name contains the hard K and his last name has both the [[TheVonTropeFamily "von" particle]] and the "ch/kh" sound that [[TheUnpronounceable does not exist in most varieties of English]].

* The Live Action/CGI combined series ''AceLightning'' contains many characters with the names of Lord Fear, Anvil, Dirty Rat and Felicity Fury... Ironically the least auspiciously named character is Kilobyte, who also happens to be the most dangerous of the bad guys.

* Italian Tony, the Tooting Terror in ''AreYouBeingServed''. The two burglars in "The Hold Up" are ''absolutely terrified'' at the spectre of meeting the son of notorious gangsters Ma and Pa Gumby. HilarityEnsues when onscreen appears [[spoiler:Mr Humphries]] in disguise!

** Angron renaming his legion the World Eaters (used to be the War Hounds) was in hindsight a sign of bad things to come.

* 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.

* [[ComicBook/{{Empowered}} Willy Pete]], which sounds redneck and is also a weapon, being military jargon for white phosphorus. His body burns hotter than the sun, and most other things that could be said about him belong on the CompleteMonster and/or NightmareFuel page(s).

* A subversion, [[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.
