* There's a boss in ''VideoGame/MegaManX5'' known as the Skiver, because he's a {{Pegasus}} with [[BlowYouAway sky powers]]. A skiver is also a term for a lazy person. ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'' also has a robot master named Hard Man, which they had to have known wouldn't exactly be treated with maturity.

* EVEOnline has the Thukker Tribe. Yes. Really. Some of the system names aren't much better, and even the random alphanumeric 0.0 system names have a few bulkhead bangers.

Added DiffLines:

** The legendary Pokemon Magearna got snickers when it was released in February 2016 because its Japanese name's raw translation is Magiana. Some wiseguys had to point out that it's similar to the NSFW slang term 'mangina'.
** ''Videogame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. Not really their whole names, but their abbreviations. "Did Game Freak realize kids are going to be looking up 'Pokemon S&M'?"
