** ''Website/TelevisionWithoutPity'' had a cottage industry of these for ''24'', at least in the first few seasons worth of recaps.

** "Sparky" for Paul Raines, after Jack used electricity to torture him. There's also the far-from-creative "Agent Hobbit" for the season five character played by Sean Astin...
** FastKarateForTheGentleman makes a habit of creating dozens of these, for pretty much every character not in the core cast. Special mention goes to Special Agent Babykins, Chloe's son JibJub, and the President of Not-Iran.

How he would have worked Jack Bauer into a story about Creator/LeonardoDaVinci, Pagan cults and {{Jesus}}' family is anyone's guess.
