* Argentinian football player (soccer) Sergio "Kun" Agüero of Manchester City. The "kun" isn't an actual part of his name but a nickname he got from his grandparents. This was due to his resemblance to the character "Kum Kum" from his favourite childhood anime "Wanpaku Oomukashi Kum Kum" made in 1975. He has worn this nickname on his jersey throughout his entire career.

* Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling plays war games and {{MMORPG}}s. Originally, Schilling planned to start an MMORPG company after his retirement from baseball; he wound up starting Green Monster Games (now 38 Studios, who developed ''Kingdoms of Amalur'') before he retired. Once, when Schilling used to pitch for Arizona, he was rocked for two homers in the same game by former teammate Doug Glanville. After the game Doug dedicated that beating to the memory of Bing-bong, his ''{{Everquest}}'' character that Schilling had left to die. Schilling has such a good relationship with ''Sony Online Entertainment'' that he asked them to add his likeness into ''EverQuestII'' for a charity event. The developers agreed, and put his voice, face, and likeness into the game, complete with his jersey's number painted on his red armor. This very character would later become a permanent part of the game under the name of "[[SignificantAnagram Clint Gilcrush]]". He also founded the company Multi-Man Publishing '''specifically''' to keep his wargame of choice, ''Advanced Squad Leader'', in print following Hasbro's purchase of Avalon Hill. The man is '''''dedicated'''''.
