* The general mechanics behind the naming of Franchise/{{Digimon}} mean that falling victim to this is both easy and common once they reach [[EvolutionaryLevels the higher levels]], or occasionally even before. A common tendency is to add a prefix word to a name to modify it for a new evolutionary form, possibly the most famous example being [[Anime/DigimonAdventure MetalGreymon]]. Some prefixes even stack onto each other to signify variations and counterparts, such as adding "Black" to make a probably-evil Virus variant. Some of the longest examples are [=BlackMetalGarurumon=], [[Anime/DigimonFrontier ShadowMetalKabuterimon]], [=MetallifeKuwagamon=], [[Anime/DigimonXEvolution DexDorugoramon]] and, most hilariously, [[DigimonWorld2 ChaosBlackWarGreymon]]. The recent [[DigimonWorldDS set of]] [[DigimonWorldDawnDusk DS RPGs]] [[UpToEleven couldn't even fit a majority of Digimon names in the space allotted for said names]]!

* ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' has [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Gil/Giru]], whose serial number is [=DD4649T22006RS=]. Dr. Myuu and every M2 calls him with this number, which is kinda funny, and you are able to memorize it easily after a while.

-->'''Random M2:''' "Look, it's [=DB4649T2006RS=]!"
** Since Gil is mostly known by his serial number among fellow [=M2s=], they consider it as his real name.
-->'''Neji:''' "He is not 'Gil'. He is [=DB4649T2006RS=]."

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Misawa uses an anime-only monster against Talia called "Conduction Warrior Linear Magnum Plus-Minus". (Fans have joked that the biggest reason it's not a real card is because there's no font size that would make the name fit on one.)
