** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]] has Nah, the half Manakete daughter of Nowi. Her name frequents her no small share of annoyance.

** ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' has yet another example: Liam O'Dourke ("I am a dork"). His appearance fits his name, and he's a major BaseBreaker among players.

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'?"

* Aloser Danya in TacticsOgre. One gets the feeling her parents utterly HATED her. What makes it hilarious is she's one of the deadliest units in the game, being an archer with massive DEX capable of assassinating even fully armored units sniper-style. Just ask Bishop Branta when you see him. She's actually named after a demon in mythology.

* Noob Saibot of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' is an interesting case. His name is the backwards version of the series' co-creators' names, Boon and Tobias. But it's often shortened to {{Noob}}, and given the fact that his early appearances has some rather cheap special movies, it fit. The devs seem to realize the joke, giving him a "Troll Hammer" as a weapon in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon''. In ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', his match-beginning quote is "Fear me!" Oh wait, sorry, "ph33r m3!". Note that this was ''before'' the term "noob" was coined, making it [[HilariousInHindsight retroactively unfortunate]].
