** Rubber Chicken - Corpse of a cockatrice, which [[OneHitKill petrifies]] anything touching it. Often used as weapon (don't forget your gloves), by literally bashing enemies it with, and a cause of many accidental deaths.
** Foocubus - Generic term for any [[HornyDevils incubus or succubus]].
*** in the same vein "footrice" is sometimes used to refer to cockatrices and chickatrices collectively, since they and their corpses (mentioned above) have the same petrifying properties

** Fagrider - a derogatory nickname for the Vanu Magrider, a hovertank of considerable maneuverability compared to its counterparts.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''
** Uber - Used for Pokémon who are {{Game Breaker}}s in PlayerVersusPlayer and are thus banned in the {{Metagame}}.
** Legendary - While the term is used in canon, a different definition is used by the fandom to mean the many [[LostForever one chance only]] Pokémon that appear in the series. While this does include the rare Pokémon with actual legends behind them, fan usage includes Pokémon like Mewtwo and Deoxys, which don't have legends attached to them due to their origins. A good portion of them happen to be described as Uber as well.
** Legendary Birds - Used in reference to Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. Sometimes Lugia and Ho-oh, too.
** Legendary Beasts - Used in reference to Entei, Suicune, and Raikou. Once called Legendary Dogs or Legendary Cats, but didn't stick due to arguments on what the Pokémon in question actually resembled, which leads us to an amusing [[TakeAThirdOption third/fourth nickname for the trio]]: the Legendary Gerbils. Crown Beasts is another nickname, usually used specifically for the three shiny beasts that were given out in events near the end of Gen IV.

** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Metagame_terminology More fan terms and nicknames can be found here]].
** Magikrap – {{Magikarp|Power}}.
*** Also 'Derpfish'.
** Skymin - Used in reference to Shaymin's Sky Forme.
** Shiny - Unofficial term for generally any alternate-colored Pokémon, given that, whenever one appears, it briefly sparkles.
*** It became an official term beginning with the official strategy guide for ''Platinum'', and proceeded to be plastered all over ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''.
** [[BadAss GAR]]chomp - [[GameBreaker Garchomp]], obviously. It's incredibly manly, even if you have a female one.
*** [[BadAss GAR]]ados works on the same principal.
** Lati@s - Collective name for Latios and Latias (since the @ looks like both an "a" and an "o").
** Pikablu - Marill, acquired during [[EpilepticTrees speculation]] and [[UrbanLegendOfZelda rumor]] as to the names and appearances of new Pokémon in Gold/Silver.
** Time Pony - Dialga
** Space Penis - Palkia
** [[DigimonAdventure MetalGreymon]] - A derogatory term for Rhyperior, Rhydon's evolution evolved form. Notwithstanding the fact that [[CriticalResearchFailure Rhyperior looks nothing like [=MetalGreymon=] at all]]...
*** More like [=RhyINFERIOR=].
** [[OlympusMons PokéGod]] - A nickname jokingly used for Arceus.
*** The shiny Arceus that *would* have been possible with the Azure Flue had it been released (and therefore is only obtainable by hacking) is referred to sometimes as 'God of Urine' by some, because it's entirely yellow.
*** Also used before Diamond/Pearl as a reference to the [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Template:GlitchPkmn glitch 'Pokémon']] in Red/Blue/Yellow (people tried to pass them off as actual {{mons}} once, if [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/gameboy/file/367023/5741 this]] is anything to go by...).
*** Also, God-Pony and God-[[EverythingsBetterWithLlamas Llama]].
*** Plus, Space goat.
** Hax - Anything that has a low chance of happening yet can be unfair or gamechanging when it does happen such as critical hits on regular moves (about 5% chance). [[ConfirmationBias Especially when the speaker is on the receiving end]].

** Flychu: Similar to the above, a Pikachu who knows Fly.
*** That sort of thing is common for many mons. For example, Snorlax with Curse=Curselax. Event Bagon/Shellgon/Salamence with Wish=Wishgon/Wishmence. It happens with abilities too. One example is Breloom with Technician=Techloom.
** Jim Guy/Gai: The guy (or possibly [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals guys]], it's not quite clear) who's always at the front of every Gym giving novice trainers advice on the type the Gym uses.
** Smugleaf, Wotter, and Pignition/Pignite/Piglit: The fifth-gen starters. Smugleaf in particular is so prominent, it's made it onto [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/smugleaf-tsutarja Know Your Meme.]]
*** Emboar: Piglit's evolution. Widely believed to be the official Japanese name due to a misprint on [[http://www.serebii.net/index2.shtml a major fansite]]. (The real name is Enbuoh, which means something like "fire oink king"; although many Pokémon are named in [[GratuitousEnglish (more or less) English]], in this case, the resemblance is probably a coincidence.)
*** Snivy was another nickname for the Grass starter, which later [[AscendedMeme became its official name]], as were Pignite (for Tepig's first evolution) and Emboar (for its second).
** Not really for a Pokémon, but there's a guy in the Japanese TV show PokemonSunday who resembles [[AdolfHitler a certain WWII German chancellor]] quite a bit. Thus he goes by "Japanese Hitler" in several forums and Website/{{Youtube}} comment threads.
** [[Manga/SoulEater Excalibur]] - A nickname (and MemeticMutation) given to the Grass-type starter for Black/White due to its resemblance to a certain JerkAss sword.
*** The resemblance is uncanny. [[http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/342/4/a/snivy_sugimori_attempt_by_tails19950-d34h2ee.png Snivy]], [[http://static.zerochan.net/full/15/22/376115.jpg Excalibur]], [[http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/339/5/9/excalibur_snivy_by_harijizo-d34avnz.jpg Both]].
** M-block - A nickname of a glitch Pokémon called 'M (2 unpronouncable symbols).

** [[Series/SesameStreet Ernie and Bert]]: Sawk and Throh, a pair of Muppet-like Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''.
** Only King and Only God - Flareon and Entei (respectively) in Japan, mockingly referring to how bad they are on the competitive metagame simply because [=GameFreak=] will refuse to give them moves that put their high Physical Attack to good use. So while every other old Fire-type gets new tricks, they CantCatchUp.
** Fans finally got so fed up with [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Ghetsis/Gichisu/Geechisu/Geechis/Geecis/Geetis's]] name that they dubbed him Gaycheese.
*** Because of the [[{{Mondegreen}} easily-misheard]] [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Name Chanting]] in his theme music, "Dennis" has become rather popular as well. (Before it was known to belong to Ghetsis, the theme and "DENNIS" were also associated with [[OlympusMons Genesect]] - again, the mondegreen comes into play.)
** Pansage, Pansear, Panpour, and their evolutions tend to collectively referred to as the "elemental monkeys", due to their basis on the commonly-associated types of Fire, Water, and Grass.
** Stunfisk is called [[{{Gonk}} Derpfish]]. Even typing in 'derpfish' into a search engine shows it as one of the first results.
** Hax Tower for the Battle Tower in particular, though the name can be extended to the other battle facilities as well. Simply go challenge the Battle Tower/Subway/Frontiers of Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and/or Unova, and the reason for this nickname will be ''[[NintendoHard quite]]'' [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard apparent]].
** NEET Trio for the characters [[{{Bishonen}} Volkner, Riley, and Steven]].
** Genwunners: Those who are fanatical about Gen I Pokémon. (read as 'Gen One-ers')
** Genwars: The neverending fights over which generation is best.
** Entrolllink: Entrelink in Gen V. It comes from the difficulty of getting a Dream World Pokémon with decent stats out of there, and the fact that RNG abuse is hard with Entrelink as well.
** Smogonfags and Karenfags: A 4chan-originated, somewhat derrogatory term for the two big camps of competitive battling: Those who congregate at sites like smogon.com and spend a lot of time breeding, and those who prefer to use what they can catch, these being named for the Elite Four member Karen, who says that trainers should use their favorite Pokemon rather than concentrating on strong ones. (though RNG abuse does close the gap somewhat, given that you can catch a flawless Pokémon as easily as you can breed one.)
** Cockfighting Society: a term for Pokémon, used in AwkwardZombie forums.
** Hitmons: A collective name for the three possible Tyrogue evolutions: Hitmontop, Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee.

** [=TRio=]-Team Rocket trio
** HM slave: Any Pokémon in-game whose only use is learning several HM techniques to help the player get around. Dedicated HM slaves arose from the fact that such moves are both subpar in battle (Surf and Waterfall, and possibly also Strength being the exceptions) and hard to get rid of once learned.
** Amphabulous: Mega Ampharos, a new form of Ampharos for the sixth Generation of games with long flowing hair and generally depicted with [[BishieSparkle Bishie Sparkles]] all over the place.
** Grasshat- Chespin, the Gen VI grass starter, due to its wearing a hat.

** Eeveelutions - collective term for the Pokemon that evolve from Eevee, which as of Gen VI totals to eight.
*** Vappy - Vaporeon.

** [=VoltTurn=] - A competitive team[=/=]{{metagame}} strategy that makes heavy use of the moves [[SwitchOutMove U-Turn and Volt Switch]] in order to hold Type advantage over the opponent while still dealing damage during switches.
** [=SubSeeding=] - A strategy that employs both the moves [[NinjaLog Substitute]] and [[LifeDrain Leech]] [[DamageOverTime Seed]].

** Spinner - A Pokemon whose primary role on a team is to get rid of Stealth Rock using Rapid Spin.
** Spin Blocker - A Pokemon, always a Ghost type, whose primary role is to render (the Normal typed) Rapid Spin ineffective and take out the Spinner.
** Paraswag: Paraflinch's riskier cousin, wherein the user employs both Swagger (which raises the target's Attack and makes them attack ''themselves'' half the time) and paralysis to infuriate their opponent.
** [[FunWithAcronyms F.E.A.R.]]: A set that employs a '''F'''ocus Sash, '''E'''ndeavor[[hottip:*:An attack that reduces the opponent's hit points to the same number as the user's]], and Quick '''A'''ttack on a level 1 '''R'''attata to take out a much stronger opponent. The alternative name is '''F'''ucking '''E'''vil '''A'''nnoying '''R'''odent.
** S.A.B.E.R.: Like F.E.A.R., only using a '''[[LastChanceHitPoint S]]'''[[LastChanceHitPoint turdy]] level 1 '''A'''ron that uses a Shell '''B'''ell in combination with '''E'''ndeavor to '''R'''ecover health, making the strategy repeatable.
** Megazard: For Mega Charizard X/Y

*** Talonflame now has earned the name Bravest Bird.
** Rape Machine: MegaMetagross has gained this one in short order after the trailer came out for two reasons. First is its proposed stat spread and new ability, Touph Claws, being incredibly broken. With a speed boost to overcome its old problems with speed with offences boosted and then further boosts to contact moves such as Meteor Smash and Zen Headbutt it will be hard to stop. The second is its design that makes it look like its arms have been positioned to hold limbs while its new Metang point does its job.
** Effort Values, Individual Values, and Personality Values: Three sets of numbers assigned to every Pokémon concealed from the player that ultimately determine a Pokémon's visible stats and can vary between members of the same species. The official term for Effort Values is "base stats" (not to be confused with the fan term "base stats" below), which was mentioned sparingly in some official guides prior to Generation VI. Individual Values and Personality Values have never been officially mentioned at all. ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' made base stats visible, allowing that phrase to flourish among the more casual players.
** Base Stats: A set of numbers concealed from the player that also determines a Pokémon's visible stats and are fixed to the Pokémon's species. No official guides have ever made mention of them; hence, to avoid confusion, the more dedicated players continue to refer to these fixed values as Base Stats and the variable ones above as Effort Values.
* ''ProfessorLayton''
** Gizmo - The robot dog you can assemble in the first game has no default name, but fans have chosen to dub it 'Gizmo'. Similarly, the hamster in the second game has been dubbed as 'Hamu' by Japanese fans.

* ''{{Persona 3}}''
** Revolver Jesus - Used to refer to Takaya, the Strega member with a twisted messianic complex. The name is obviously explained by his striking resemblance to Jesus and the revolver he wields (with deadly accuracy and kickassery). (An oddity worth noting about this is Takaya's VA, Derek Stephen Prince, also voiced chaos in ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} Episode I''. chaos is referred to as "Yeshua", the Aramaic name of Jesus, in several ''Xenosaga'' games and spinoffs.)
*** Also Headphones Jesus (The Main Character) and Laser Jesus (Messiah)

** Minato Arisato - The name of the main character in the non-canon ''Persona 3'' manga, widely adopted as a default name by the fandom in the absence of any CanonName. He finally gains his CanonName in TheMovie, as Makoto Yuuki.
*** Minato Arisato has actually become his default name for [[VideoGame/{{PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth}} Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth]], making it a sort-of ''secondary'' CanonName. Now the game's current status in continuity, [[Main/BaseBreaker on the other hand]]...
*** Door-kun and variants upon Emo Jesus are also popular [[spoiler:due to the MC's fate as The Great Seal.]]
*** The female protagonist introduced as an option in ''Persona 3 Portable'' is, by extension, commonly called "Minako Arisato," especially in the Western side of the fandom.
*** Japanese fans more commonly call the female protagonist "Hamuko," a name derived from reading part of the kanji for "protagonist" as katakana and adding "-ko," a common ending of girls' names in Japanese.
*** The main character is also often referred to as MC, for fairly obvious reasons; by extension, another nickname for the female main character is "[=FemC=]" (or sometimes "[=MShe=]"). Along similar lines, Protagonist-kun and Protagonist-chan.
** 22 - yet another nickname for the female main character, taken from the arrangement of hairpins in her hair (which appear to spell out XXII), the alternate placement of the Fool card in the Major Arcana.
** Eurydice - A fan nickname for the female protagonist's initial Persona (from the other main character of the Orpheus myth), used before it was confirmed that both the male and female [=PCs=] start off using Orpheus.
** Bropei - Junpei Iori, especially after Yosuke in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' received the "Brosuke" nickname.
*** Much more common is his ingame nickname of Stupei
** The Village People - Strega, due to their strange, unique, persona fashion choices (Hippie, Bomber Jacket, and Gothic Lolita)

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''
** Brosuke Hanamura - Yosuke Hanamura, referring to his good ol' fist brawl in his max S. Link event, which kind of gives the vibes of "Bros before hos". He also is a real good friend. No, really.

*** Japan calls him "Junes" after the store he works in
** Rapedachi - Tohru Adachi, for, well... [[spoiler: let's say throwing Mayumi Yamano to the TV world wasn't his initial plan.]]

*** Bitches and Whores Guy, due to the infamous meme.
** Pringle King - Any Mook of the "King" archetype, but most notably the Great King (the one of the infinite money trick), for its resemblance to the mascot of a certain potato chip brand.
** Captain Pistol - Referring to Naoto, before everyone [[spoiler: found out that it was a girl dressing up like a guy.]]
** The Inaba Scooby Gang - The Investigation Team [[spoiler: later the Seekers of Truth]].
** [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Falcon Kick]] - [[CuteBruiser Chie's]] Galactic Punt that allows her to [[ATwinkleInTheSky kick an enemy into orbit]].
*** [[GodHand Dragon Kick]] is another popular nickname, especially when you consider that her most powerful attack is called God's Hand.
*** '''TRIAL OF THE DRAGON''' has also popped up thanks to {{Hiimdaisy}}. Always in all caps.
** Souji Seta - Who some people address the main character as; this is his name in the non-canonical Persona 4 manga. His CanonName as of ''Arena'' and ''The Animation'' is Yu Narukami
** Kenpachi Ramasama and Charlie Tunoku are also common, due to a SomethingAwful and GiantBomb LetsPlay, respectively.
** The King, God-Emperor of SWAG: Stems from Episode 15 of ''The Animation'' which has the main character [[MrFanservice unbutton his shirt]] and have every single female member of the Inaba Scooby Gang sit on his lap at once. His response to a jealous Yosuke: "It's because I'm the King." SWAG is always written in Caps Lock.

** The Shrieker - Rise for being easily the most annoying Mission Control in any of the games
** Larry - Yukiko, both from [[https://1-media-cdn.foolz.us/ffuuka/board/a/image/1342/36/1342366934457.jpg a rather hilarious gag translation of the manga]], and due to Website/FourChan's opinion on "a boring name for a boring character"
** [[MarySue Marie Sue]], a derogatory name for newcomer Marie in [[UpdatedRerelease Persona 4: The Golden]]
* ''Persona4Arena''
** T. Bearson - Teddie's appearance, due to donning a cape and a hat in the same vein of [[StreetFighter M. Bison]].
*** Teddie Crusher - His Teddie Screw attack, because it bears a resemblance to the Psycho Crusher.
** Ms. President, Labby - Labrys and Shadow Labrys. The latter is Teddie's nickname for her after meeting her, and the first is what everyone calls her before she reveals herself.
** Shabrys - For those who don't like spelling out Shadow Labrys' name altogether.
*** Shabby - Affectionate name taken from Teddie's nickname for regular Labrys.
** [[MarvelVSCapcom3 Proton Cannon / Superior Tech]] - Aigis' Instant Kill, where she fires a gigantic laser out of a shoulder cannon like Iron Man.
** Junes Install - Yosuke's Sukukaja super, which acts as a [[GuiltyGear Dragon Install]] and speeds him up to the point where his dashes become invincible teleports.
** Metsu Shoryuken - Akihiko's main super.
*** Tanden Engine, Tanden Stream - Akihiko's D attack, where Caesar creates a spinning globe that sucks the opponent in. The latter is for his Instant Kill.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}''
** People have already taken to calling this MC HarryPotter, Chair-kun, and Glasses-kun.
* VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} - Wheatley after he is [[spoiler: plugged into the GLaDOS chassis]], is sometimes referred to by the fans as "[=WheatDOS=]". It also happens to the the PortmanteauCoupleName for [=Wheatley/GLaDOS=] shippers.

** Redfield PAAAAAUNCH, The Fist of Justice - Chris Redfield's extremely [[MegatonPunch over-the-top]] hand-to-hand attacks in ''5''. His mighty fist can shatter tribal shields to useless flinders, send Majini flying back ten or fifteen feet, and even [[spoiler:knock the aforementioned Wesker clean on his ass for a short time!]]
*** All of which are outshined by his magnificient act of punching a ''boulder'' out of the way, giving way to Chris Redfield, BOULDER PUNCHER.
** [[StreetFighter Tiger Uppercut, Flash Kick]]: Nicknames given to Wesker's and Chris's uppercut and backflip kicks respectively.
** Chris Roidsfield - The aforementioned Chris, due to his heavily bulked up look in ''5'' (as compared to his appearance in [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil the first game]] and ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code: Veronica]]''). Whether or not it's an affectionate nickname or a way to mock Chris depends on the fan in question.
** [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Nina]] [[JustForPun Jilliams]]]]: [[spoiler:Jill Valentine]] in ''5'', due to [[spoiler:her blond hair (as a side effect of her experimentation by Wesker) and the [[SpyCatsuit battle suit]] she wears while acting as Wesker's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy unwilling]] [[TheDragon Dragon]]. As a result, she heavily resembles Nina Williams of ''{{Tekken}}'' fame. Before her reveal, she was also called "The Bird Lady" due to sporting a CoolMask with bird motifs.]]

** Agent Zebra: RE5's alternate costume for Chris
** Leech-Marcus: To differentiate the real James Marcus and the clone of his body and memories created by leeches.

** 'The Redfields' Used to refer to Chris and Claire collectively, and makes it into this section because oddly enough, it is never said in canon.
** "[[{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]]'s Parents Having Sex": [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kcF7E69C6Q The Mansion Basement theme]] from the Dual Shock version of ''Resident Evil: Director's Cut'' thanks to its...poorly implemented horns.

** [[TheyMightBeGiants Triangle Man]] - Pyramid Head.
*** "Pyramid Head" itself is a fan nickname, as the monster is never referred to as such in-game. (James calls it the "Red Pyramid Thing" or something).

**** Also, when you examine the Great Knife, James refers to him as "Pyramid Head."

** Nails - Rouge the Bat.
*** Many fans rather nickname Rouge to a lesser extent "Boobs The Bat", due to her breasts.
** Dark Sonic - ShadowTheHedgehog.

** Peanut: Miles "Tails" Prower
** Rocket: Knuckles

** In Brazil, the Debug Mode is known as the "Thousand Faces Trick".
** Sonic Adventure 3: Sonic 06
** Trollnado: [[spoiler:The tornado that whisks away the level goal in [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Crisis City]] Act 1]] in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''
* ''VideoGame/SpaceStation13'':
** Robust: Used as a synonym for melee fighting, after the "[[SarcasmMode robust]]" fighting mechanics provided by the BYOND engine.

** Captain Mozzarella - The giant head with melting skin that is the first game's final boss.
** Legion - The final boss of the second game (officially known as Ultimate Evil), for its resemblance to the common ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' boss.
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'':
** "Boff" / "[=BOff=]" / "BOFF" for "Bridge Officer" (a.k.a. your BridgeBunnies). Likewise, some variation of "Doff" for "Duty Officers", the RedshirtArmy who run your [[LowerDeckEpisode Lower Decks]].
** Among others, KDF players are Klinks or Klanks, spiral wave disruptors are pissbeams, the Caitian Atrox Carrier is the catbus, and the Jem'hadar Attack Ship is the bugship or Jem bug.
** "Rainbow boats" or "Skittleboats", among others, for a noob mistake of not making your weapon types match up[[labelnote:*]]Tactical consoles that boost a particular energy type (e.g. phaser, disruptor, or antiproton) provide greater increases than ones that boost a weapon type (beams, cannons, torpedoes, or mines).[[/labelnote]], because of the resulting BeamSpam and/or [[MoreDakka Dakka]] being in all colors of the rainbow. As one guy on the forums remarked on one of these who used cannons, "every time he fired it looked like a pack of Skittles exploded."
** The forums use so much shorthand for builds and abilities it's practically a second language you have to learn.
** The new Obelisk carrier has also been dubbed the "Obisek" carrier, noting how close it was to the well-known Reman character of the Romulan storyline.
** [[PunnyName "T'Its"]], or some variation thereof, for [[LadyNotAppearingInThisGame the nameless Vulcan lady with plentiful cleavage]] that graces a lot of the [[http://images-cdn.perfectworld.com/www/pictures/1353959785786.jpg promo art]]. Similarly, Commander Tiaru Jarok, captain of the RRW ''Lleiset'' (the Romulan Republic equivalent of the ''Enterprise''), was dubbed "So'Hott" until her name was revealed.
* ''Franchise/StarCraft'':
** Among ''Franchise/StarCraft'' players in the Korean professional leagues, standouts will invariably earn themselves a nickname to go with their real name (used by the leagues for records) and in-game alias. Some examples:
*** Lee Jae Dong (Jaedong) “The Legend Killer”
*** Lee Yeong Ho (Flash) “The Ultimate Weapon”
*** Ma Jae Yoon (savior) “The Maestro”
*** Lim Yo Hwan ([=SlayerS=]_Boxer) “The Emperor”
** Particularly good or entertaining foreign players also receive nicknames:
*** Greg Fields ([=EGIdrA=]) “The Gracken”
*** Chris Loranger ([=EG.HuK=]) “[=HuK=] Norris”
** ''VideoGame/{{StarCraft|I}}: Brood War'' units:
*** Zergling is usually shortened to ‘ling, with fully-upgraded zerglings called Cracklings
*** Ultralisks are often called Imbalisks (Imbalanced-Ultralisks) or cows.
*** [[CoolStarship Battlecruisers]] are nicknamed flying cows by some in reference to the ultralisk's nickname, as both have a massive amount of HP.
*** Bastard Probe, as probes are arguably the most annoying unit in the game, and most certainly the most annoying worker.
*** Darchons, short for Dark Archons.
*** Carriers are called Cars (Short for carriers) or Bananas (They're long and yellow)
*** M&M's: Marines & Medics. A devastating combination of units if used properly.
** ''VideoGame/{{StarCraft II}} units:
*** Similar to Brood War, the Marine / Marauder / Medivac unit composition is called “MMM”.
*** A [[DropShip Medivac]] carrying eight marines is commonly called an Octodrop.
*** Using a DropShip to move units up to high ground or vice versa is called “Elevatoring”
*** Zerglings with the speed upgrade, but not attack are called Speedlings or Slings for short, while fully upgrade zerglings remain Cracklings [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad despite Blizzard’s best efforts to change the lexicon]].
*** In similar fashion, Banelings are called Blings or Banes, with the latter lending itself to “Bane Rain” when paired with [[DropShip upgraded overlords]].
*** When cast, Infested Terran eggs lay on the ground for some seconds before hatching, and are referred to as Beach Balls. Unlike actual beach balls, these can seriously mess with unit pathing.
*** Mutalisks are occasionally referred to as T-Rex’s or Dinosaurs due to the shape of their wireframe icon in the user interface.
*** When using their Lair-tech ability to generate creep, Overlords appear to spew purple liquid out of their undersides. Needless to say, the scatological jokes abound, chief among them, Diarrhea.
*** Zealots with their speed upgrade are called Chargelots.
*** While Sentries themselves don’t have many nicknames, their most useful ability has lent itself to other nicknames – Nukes are known as the Terran Forcefield, and in the right situation, Fungal Growth is the Zerg Forcefield.
*** Due to their enormous, bulbous head and the way they tend to gently nudge each other when clumped up, [[TripodTerror Colossi]] are known as Walking Blimps.
*** Void Rays were once known as Void Ra’s due to professional player White-Ra’s tendency to use them during the beta.
*** The Archon Toilet, which involves using the Mothership's Vortex ability (with a spiral effect reminiscent of a toilet flushing) to immobilize units on one point of the map, letting archons and their splash damage to devastate them when they come out of it. [[{{Nerf}} Since patched out of existence]] via a split second of MercyInvincibility.
* ''StreetFighter''
** Boxer, Dictator, Claw - M. Bison/Balrog, Vega/M. Bison, and Balrog/Vega, respectively; used to avoid confusion in the international fandom.
** "The Raging Demon" - Akuma's ultimate attack, the ''Shun Goku Satsu''.
*** Which is actually the name that was officially given to it in the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 2'' manual.
*** Also "Tian" ("Heaven" or "Sky", which also depends on the version) among Chinese players, after the kanji that flashes on Akuma's back during this move.
** Tasting the Rainbow - Getting hit by Gill's "Seraphic Wing" OneHitKill, which is a rainbow-colored circle.
** Thunder Thighs - Chun-Li, whose hips are her most defining feature.
*** "Chunbuns", "Chunners" "The Chunner" are also popular.
** Cycloid Seth - Seth (duh) from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''; named after the Cycloid characters from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterEX Plus'', who are known for having movesets consisting of moves of other characters.
** '''THE RED CYCLONE''' - Zangief, of course! Must be written in ALL CAPS for maximum effectiveness.
*** Although this is a canonical nickname in the series too.
*** "Jazzy Russia" - The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvwwfX_mKnU SFIV]]'' version of his [[{{Leitmotif}} iconic]] theme song.
** [[FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]] - M. Bison, due to his {{egregious}}ly large chin.
*** He didn't always have that chin. Was also known as "Truck Driver Bison" during his Alpha incarnation.
** Family Man - Guile, for obvious reasons.
*** Guile has a crapload of nicknames, mostly due to nobody knowing what "guile" was or meant when they were ten. Gweelie, Goolie, Gilley and more persist to this day. And in a more annoying vein stemming from the same idea, "Roo."
** [[MemeticMutation GARlie]] - Charlie, due to his extreme manliness. Also applies to Guile when wearing his alternate costume in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''.
** Burgertits - C. Viper, for the way she cushions her necktie between her breasts.
** The two incarnations of Cammy are distinguished as "Delta Red Cammy" and "Shadaloo Cammy" based on her different affiliations.
*** Although (technically) this is canon too.
** Flash Kick - Guile and Charlie's anti-air specials, which are officially called "Somersault Kick". The "Jackknife Kick" was also popular in the early days.
*** Although with the English dub of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'', "Flash Kick" is the official now.
*** "Flash Kick" was always an official name. However, it was only used in the American versions of the games and never in the Japanese ones.
** Flaming Torpedo - A very early fan name for the Psycho Crusher. Initially, when it was revealed to be actually called "Psycho Crusher", many fans didn't believe it.
*** In Brazil, way back: Roto-Rooter, due to the commercials of that plumbing method here.
** Shotos (or {{Shotoclone}}s) - Ryu, Ken, Akuma (Gouki), Dan, Sean (and soemtimes Sakura, Sagat, and Gouken as well) collectively get called this. The name comes from Capcom's designation of Ryu and Ken's fighting style as "Shotokan Karate" in the early English localizations of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' (the style was never actually given a name per se in the original Japanese canon). This is also the term given to other so-called Ryu/Ken-types (such as CaptainAmerica in ''Marvel Super Heroes'' and Morrigan and Lillith from ''Darkstalkers'').
** In the wake of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0lLd9Wgsgk new]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PInwiG8LR9E Ultra]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw7KozPJALw Combos]] for ''[[CapcomSequelStagnation Super]] [[UpdatedRerelease Street]] [[{{Sequelitis}} Fighter]] [[{{Interquel}} IV]]'', there have been ''several''.
*** (Demon/Shin) Roflcopter, Shun Goku {{Beyblade}}, [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Akumanian Devil]], Akumacopter - Akuma's Demon Armageddon, which is a HurricaneKick cranked UpToEleven with [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning more spinning action]] and is deemed by some to be too over-the-top for [[WarriorPoet a]] [[BloodKnight guy]] [[ArrogantKungFuGuy like]] [[{{Badass}} him]]. May or may not have anything to do with a similar scene in Proxicide's famous fanwork ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4-js6TKPBc Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat 3]]'', which garnered similar effects. Needless to say, [[InternetBackdraft the fans are not pleased]].
*** Souloboros - Rose's Soul Satellite, which is very similar to VideoGame/{{Strider}} Hiryu's Ouroboros super from the ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Marvel vs. Capcom]]'' series.
*** "'''FOR MOTHER RUSSIA!!'''" & "'''I AM THE PROTECTOR OF RUSSIA'S SKIES!!'''" - Zangief's first and second Ultras, respectively. The first can also be applied to good 'ol Gief himself.
*** Gen's new [[TouchOfDeath Shi'tengetsu]] [[RapidFireFisticuffs Ultra]] has earned him the nickname of [[FistOfTheNorthStar Genshiro]] in some circles.
*** And the game itself has been christened by some people as ''[[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning Super Spin Fighter IV]]''.
** ''Ken Fighter IV'' - See the picture on ComplacentGamingSyndrome. Sometimes, it's followed by the subtitle "''Sagat Strike''".
*** Before that, there was ''Chun Fighter III: Ken Strike - Yun for the Future'', thanks to the mass character balancing in ''III: Third Strike'' shuffling around ''all'' of the CharacterTiers. Some characters (like Sean) were severely {{nerf}}ed while Chun-Li, Ken, and Yun were thrust into top-tier. Now you know why videos of TournamentPlay will usually involve those three characters (with Akuma, popping up at times).
** From the above "Jazzy Russia" example, there is now a trend (presumably started by Alex's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSzPbO9DFcg Jazzy NYC]] in ''III'') of giving the title of "Jazzy [Insert Name of Hometown/Affiliated Location Here]" to any theme that is remotely jazz-based. In ''Super Street Fighter IV'', we now have "Jazzy [[FinalFight Metro]]" for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dE4B6RfA5oU Guy]] and "Jazzy Kyoto" for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzOckSK5f8U Ibuki]].
** Rekka - This one is more of a meta-example, [[http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Fighting_game_terms like most video game lingo.]] A term used in {{Fighting Game}}s to refer to a series of moves that require a repeated input of the same command to achieve its maximum effectiveness. There are two kinds, the first being named for Fei-Long's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyewJpIW7L0 Rekka-Ken]], in which the player must repeat the command QCF+ P three times to finish the combo. The second type is very similar to Type 2, but is distinct due to the fact that multiple followup attacks exist, providing the player with a more intricate plan of attack. A good example of this would be [[TheKingOfFighters Kyo Kusanagi's]] Aragami and Dokugami specials and Karin Kanzuki's Gurenken (also from ''SF'') which both start with the command QCF+ P, but have different properties and followups depending on which button was pressed. [[note]]Note that these should not be confused with chain/dial-a combos, which are a string of normal attacks in rapid succession. See ''{{Tekken}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', or ''Street Fighter Alpha'' for good examples.[[/note]]
** Bipson - Affectionate nickname for M. Bison (Dictator), created due to the magic that is [[FunetikAccent Chris Hu commentary]] on a match between Andre "Twisted Jago" Lambert and Daigo.
*** DA BEST BIPSON: Jago himself.
*** BISON PRESSURE: Anything involving something astounding from Bison's pressure game.
** Many attacks received fan nicknames in Brazil, mostly caused by [[MondeGreen mishearing the actual attacks.]] This has also happened to a lesser extent in Malaysia.
*** Shoryuken: Roriugui (this one became a nickname for {{Shoryuken}}-like attacks in general). In Malaysia, it has the nonsensical name "Ah-boogen" in certain circles back in the early 90s before the anime and manga landed, largely because no one could properly understand what was being said[[note]]most Malaysians don't speak Japanese, especially back then.[[/note]]
*** Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku: Ataque da Coruja (Owl Attack).
*** Sonic Boom: Alex Full. In Malaysia, it has the nickname ''Sabit-ku'' (lit. ''"My sickle!"'' or ''"My Crescent!"''. ''Sabit'' being the Malay word for sickle or crescent, [[LuckyTranslation which is what the Sonic Boom resembles]]. Ironically, no one ever questioned why Guile was speaking Malay).
*** Chou Zutsuki: Cuscuz (a type of food made of corn).
*** Spinning Bird Kick: Mini Táxi.
*** Tiger Uppercut: Tiger Franchise/{{Robocop}}. Incidentally, the attack is also known as Tiger Robocop in Malaysia.
** The Streetest Fighter - (Lethal) JokeCharacter Dan Hibiki, as a play on [[Series/TheColbertReport Stephen Colbert's]] "Great X or the greatest X?" RunningGag[[note]]Dan's self-made martial arts style, ''Saikyo-ryu'', translates to "[[{{Irony}} The Strongest School]]"[[/note]].
* ''SuperMarioBros''
** Luigi's different incarnations have gotten nicknames:
*** Weegee - Luigi. Derives from the dubious pronounciation of his name in ''VideoGame/MarioIsMissing'', a notoriously poor Mario-related educational game. Initially, the nickname referred to a bastardised version of the character as traced from his incredibly ugly sprite in the PC version, who was [[MemeticMutation shopped into various images]] as a sort of stalker figure and spread through the internet, but eventually the nickname spread to the original Luigi as well as the fanmade Weegee. Origins are even older than that, going back to the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' comic from ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' (It's what Mario calls Luigi, EVERY TIME.) It is even recognized by Nintendo. Baby Mario calls Baby Luigi this in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time]]''. Whenever Baby Luigi is knocked out and neither adult Luigi nor adult Mario are on the battlefield, Baby Mario will exclaim: "WOAH! WEEGEE!!". Luigi ''himself'' can be heard using this pronunciation clearly. Yes, the adult one (in different games).
*** Gay Luigi - Luigi in ''VideoGame/HotelMario'' due to a {{Mondegreen}} where most hear Mario say "Nice of the Princess to invite us over for a picnic, gay Luigi" instead of "-c, eh Luigi." Also, Gay Luigi has sometimes been used as the name for Luigi's pink outfit in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series.
*** Mama Luigi - Luigi in the [[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld cartoon]] allegedly based on ''Super Mario World'', thanks to the episode "Mama Luigi," which gave birth to many [[MemeticMutation memes]] and [[YouTubePoop YouTube Poops]] (then he got frowned upon in the latter for overuse).
*** Emo Luigi - Luigi in a scene in the ''SMW'' cartoon episode "Gopher Bash", where he assumes a TroubledFetalPosition and cries, "ItsAllMyFault!"
*** Green Mario - Luigi before his DivergentCharacterEvolution.
** Fat Mario - Mario in ''VideoGame/HotelMario'' for the [[SoBadItsGood CD-i]], named for his weight shifting in the cutscenes.
** Rainbow Bowser for the final Bowser fight in ''Videogame/SuperMario64''.
** Marty the Thwomp from ''VideoGame/MarioKart64''.
** [[SdrawkcabName Yvan & Wolley]] - The yellow and blue Toads from ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii''. IGN [[http://wii.ign.com/articles/990/990400p1.html asked to name the two Toads]], and on June 03, 2009 02:44 PDT, IGN user britchesman88 came up with the names and explanations behind the naming, and IGN [[http://stars.ign.com/articles/994/994192p1.html accepted them]].
** Peach Gear Solid, or Metal Gear Peach - The sections in the original ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' where you play as Peach and have to sneak around the castle to get to certain points without being seen.
** [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kaminario]] / [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simario]] - For Mario's [[ThisIsADrill Drill Power-up]] in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''.
** Charlie - [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld Chargin' Chucks]], by the rather eccentric [[LetsPlay Let's Player]] LetsPlay/{{raocow}}.
** Constipation Monster - The Snifits in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' due to looking like they're forcing out a turd before they shoot.
** {{Faceship}} - Starship Mario from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', from one of Lubba's {{pun}}s.
** Bowser Bones and Skeletal Bowser - Dry Bowser.
** Plit - The Mushroom World, the planet the games take place on.
* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''
** Randall the Cloud - Affectionate nickname for the little smiling cloud that floats along the bottom of the Yoshi's Story stage in ''Melee''.
** Space Animals - A collective term for the characters [[VideoGame/StarFox Fox, Falco, and Wolf]] (and sometimes Captain Falcon as well).
*** Sometimes Space Furries, which, in addition to being more derogatory, conveniently has the same initials as the source series.
** Seraphic Wing - Tabuu's attack in which he spreads his wings, sending out red waves that deal incredible damage and, on higher difficulties, are a OneHitKill. The official name of the attack is "Off Waves"; the nickname comes from the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' boss Gill, who has a OneHitKill of that name that also involves spreading angelic wings (in his case it sends out a rainbow, hence its Taste the Rainbow nickname above).
*** Red Rings of Death - Another name for this bloody attack. Not to be confused with a certain [[{{Xbox360}} other]] system-crashing ring (but might be named after that due to its TakeThat potential).
** Thanks, Sakurai - name used whenever something undesired happens (such as [[ScrappyMechanic tripping]])
*** Also, whenever you trip, someone will inevitably cry out: '''[[Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily SAKURAAAIII!!!!]]'''
** Big Gay Dance - King Dedede's Final Smash, officially Waddle Dee Army.
*** Stems from [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/438529 this flash]].
*** Also called [[MemeticMutation "THE SONG OF MY PEOPLE!"]]
** Great Pizza - Ike's Final Smash, officially Great Aether.
*** "I HATE YOU!" - {{Mondegreen}} for the Japanese version of said move.
** "Hands off my bread!" - Another mondegreen. This time, of Falco's side taunt.
*** "Pizza cake."
** Marshmallow Power - Lucario's Final Smash, officially Aura Storm. Lucario says "Watch the power of Aura"; players misheard this over the game's background music.
*** [[DragonBall Kamehameha]] - Named because of how it's performed, and because Lucario in the anime is played by Creator/SeanSchemmel, Goku's voice actor (though not in ''Brawl'').
** [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure ZA WARUDO]] - Luigi's Final Smash, officially Negative Zone. Inverts colors and possibly slows down the enemy.
** The Guido Torpedo, Fist of the Don, Shoryuken - Luigi's Smash+B and Up+B super moves. The former is for when he launches himself headfirst at the enemy (and will sometimes explode and take off like a bullet). The latter's nickname only applies when Luigi executes the move at point blank range, resulting in about 30-40% damage and rocketing the opponent straight up into the air.
** Captain Fabulous - [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain Falcon]] when wearing his [[IconicOutfit incredibly fabulous]] pink and white racing suit.
*** Alternatively, Pride Falcon.
*** Breast Cancer Awareness Falcon. He is aware of breast cancer. He wishes to examine all breasts, to determine health. Yes.
** PK Shitstorm - Ness and Lucas' final smashes, officially PK Star Storm.
** It's raining men - Pit's Final Smash
*** Alternatively, it has been know has his Jesus Powers, due to it being powerful if you're not a good dodger.

** Old Manondorf - Ganondorf's white hair costume.
*** Alternatively, SeanConnery.
*** Also, [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Damon Gant]]. Now you can't unsee it.
*** He's also sometimes been called 'Grandpadorf.'
*** Or [[TheLordOfTheRings Ganondalf]].
*** Others even refer to him as "Ganondork".
** Though she has nothing to do with the anime series [[WeddingPeach of similar name]] some folks refer to the white alt-color option of Princess Peach as Wedding Dress Peach.
*** Speaking of Peach, her [[AssKicksYou special move]] officially named "Peach Bomber" has also been referred to by such names as "Flying Butt Smash", "Booty Buster", and in the Melee version, which has an explosion effect instead of Brawl's cloud-of-hearts effect, the "Royal Death Fart".

** [[FunWithAcronyms Dimensional Infinite Cape of the Knight]] - derogatory nickname for Meta Knight's [[http://www.ssbwiki.com/Infinite_Dimensional_Cape Infinite Dimensional Cape]] trick, which involves abusing C-stick smashes to have Meta Knight's up-smash and Dimensional Cape [[SpamAttack simultaneously]] [[GameBreaker and endlessly]] which has been banned from Tournament Play.

*** The Fight Club for the lower part of ''Melee'' Hyrule Castle, so called because the ceilings and walls prevent many would-be [=KOs=], allowing characters' damage counts to get unusually high before anyone gets a KO. Has also been used to refer to similar parts of other stages, such as the lower section of [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Spear Pillar]] in ''Brawl''.

** Ahoseru/Silly Axel - Given to Axel Almer if picked as the protagonist of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance'', when he develops a silly personality due to AmnesiacDissonance. "Ahoseru" comes from spelling Axel's name in Japanese (A-ku-se-ru), and replacing one katakana (ku) with another, which constitutes the Japanese word "aho" meaning "stupid/silly".
*** In Japan, before ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Original Generation 2]]'' came out, an ''Advance'' Axel who was TheRival was referred to as "AKU-seru", where "aku" is written with the kanji for the Japanese word "evil".

** ''D''at ''A''nnoying ''MON''ster - InUniverse for the ''Second Z'', the InSeriesNickname for Dimension Beasts are "DAMON" ("''D''imension ''A''rmed ''MON''ster"), but players spun a new gimmick from that acronym as this due to [[DemonicSpiders certain reasons]].

** [=GARlion=] - For the Brasta in the ''Second Z'', as a reference to its [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Lion]]-esque appearance, and being a pun on the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Guarlion]][[note]]The Brasta and the Lion series share the same mechanical designer[[/note]].
** Goggles - The Angelg in the ''Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Inspector'' AnimatedAdaptation of the second game, for [[GogglesDoNothing doing nothing]] until mid-series.

** Hobo - Crowe Broust in the ''Second Z'', [[WorkOffTheDebt due to obvious reasons]].
** The Holy Trinity - Refers to the triumvirate of ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'', ''MazingerZ'' and ''GetterRobo'', which fans consider pivotal in nearly every [=SRW=], as each franchise arguably codify the RealRobot, SuperRobot and {{Combining|Mecha}}/TransformingMecha archetypes of HumongousMecha, respectively.
*** The Second Holy Trinity - As a parallel to the above, courtesy of the trio of StudioGainax series ''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}'', ''NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (via its ''[[RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild]]'' iteration) and ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' upon release of the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Trhid Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-hen]]''.

** Lamia3/Lamia MK III - The nickname for Lamia when she was under control of Duminuss of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsReversal'' in ''Original Generation Gaiden''. Noted because her personality's different and she bemeans/terrorizes the heroes on purpose, to the point that [[TheScrappy she gained a bit of a hatedom]]. The "3/MK III" refers to the third time Lamia was built with a different personality: first at birth, second after a SelfDestructMechanism failed to destroy her (later repaired by her creator) and third following a BigBadWannabe seemingly killing her, until Duminuss repairs and reformats her for its own use. She reverts back to the second form, thanks to a {{Heel Face Turn}}ing [[spoiler:Axel]].
** Loli-Sleigh - Despoiniz/Despinis, one of the homunculi of Duminuss, as she has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair long blue hair]], similar to Sleigh Presty of ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha 2]]''. Personality-wise, both are different.
*** [[UnfortunateImplications Deathpenis]] - An additionally, joke moniker due to how her name is spelled
** Ma'ke-inu ("Loser Dog") - Ibis Douglas to the Japanese fans, due to her perpetual underdog status vs. Sleigh and her relatively mediocre stats compared to the other Alpha 2 protagonists. Nowadays this has been softened into "Wanko" (Puppy).
** Nilpha - Largely coming from Japan, it's the shorthand moniker for Alpha 2 ("two" is "ni" in Japanese).
*** Salpha - Likewise for ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha 3]]'' ("three" is "san" in Japanese).
** Not-Masaki/Vampire Masaki - [[SignificantAnagram Asakim Dowin]] of ''Z'', for being a "[[EvilCounterpart reverse]]" {{Expy}} of Masaki Andoh from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars2'', with a vampire getup. Likewise, his mecha Shurouga is often called the ''Black Cybuster''.
*** Some people have gone the obvious route and taken to calling him [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alu]][[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} card]].
** Not-Titans - The ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Second Super Robot Wars Original Generation]]'' term referring to the Gaia Sabers, due to their similarites from the story description to the same-named faction in ''MobileSuitZetaGundam''. In fact, this faction was speculated before the game was announced; of course, players saw them coming a mile away due to the set up of TheFederation CivilWar in the previous games with the way the government was heading.
** [[AceAttorney Objection!/Nia Wright]] - Comes from the SuperMovePortraitAttack of [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Nia]] during one attack for the [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Dai-Gurren]] in the ''Second Z''

** Princess Moo/Cow - ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2'' Excellen Browning's {{Expy}} Kaguya Nanbu from the spinoff ''EndlessFrontier''. White-black clothes, check; [[MostCommonSuperpower very huge]] [[GagBoobs milk-producing parts]], check; [[{{Stripperific}} clothes that manage to reveal a lot, yet look blatantly too tight for her]], check. It's official: she ''is'' a "Dairy Cow Princess" (the InSeriesNickname coined by what Lamia {{Expy}} Aschen Brodel).
** Rapecage - Due to [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything its cockpit configuration]], it refers to the Rapiecage mecha from ''The Inspectors''.
** Sexsuko - Setsuko Ohara, the resident hottie of ''Z''.
*** [[OvershadowedByAwesome Blandsuko]] - A less charitable nickname in parts of [[{{Imageboards}} 4Chan]] and Website/GameFAQs in the days leading up to the release of the game, given her generic qualities in every area but appearance, and sharing the protagonist spotlight with [[BoisterousBruiser Rand Travis]], before her status as Asakim's ChewToy was apparent
*** "{{Wangst}}uko", "Setsubou" - Additional names, with the latter a play on the Japanese word "zetsubou", meaning "despair". The latter MakesSenseInContext [[DarkerAndEdgier after playing]] [[DiabolusExMachina her route]] in ''Z''.
*** Sexcellen - Likewise to Setsuko, Excellen's nickname for [[MsFanservice bloody]] [[TheTease obvious]] [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl reasons]].
** SpaceJews - Another [[{{Imageboards}} 4Chan]] nickname, this time for the Balmarians of ''Alpha'', mostly due to many of their HumongousMecha and characters having recognizably Hebrew names, given that most of the player's HumongousMecha [[UnfortunateImplications have very German names...]]
** SRW "Kagari" - Coined by Japanese players due to the plot of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK'' seemingly focused on redeeming [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Cagalli Yula Atha]], largely being RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap with loads of DayInTheLimelight.
** SRW "Lazy" - A derogatory nickname for ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL'', due to the large number of recycled series from previous installments on the NintendoDS, alongside some series simply in for {{filler}} purposes.
*** SRW "Lesbians" - For the same game, due to [[{{Gaiking}} various]] [[DancougarNova series]] [[{{Godannar}} featuring]] [[Anime/{{Iczer}} them]].
** Super Terrorist Wars - Dubbed by 2chan for the ''Second Z'' due to the presence of [[CodeGeass The Black Knights]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Celestial Being]], ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing New Mobile Report Gundam Wing]]'' and DancougarNova in the same game.
** {{Ultraman}} [[spoiler:Zest]] - TrueFinalBoss [[spoiler:Euzeth Gozzo's Adamatron]] from the ''Second Original Generation'', as a MythologyGag to the Chojin Zest from ''Super Hero Sakusen''.
** Yoga-tan - Radha Bairaban from ''Original Generation'', no thanks to her over-obsession with yoga.
** [[HadesProjectZeorymer Zeorymer Lite]] - The Rushbird from ''L'', as a reference to the Zeorymer via the Rushbird's [[spoiler:"Dimension Storm" attack animation]].
* ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'''s [[GratuitousEnglish overly verbose]] unit names are ripe for nicknames. Here's just a few:
** "Flying Donut" or simply "The Donut" -- The Aeon's Czar Flying Fortress.
** On the same coin, their Galactic Colossus has been called many things. "Iron Man", "Godzilla", even "the Gundam" once.
** Cybran's Soul Ripper is constantly made fun of due to its sheer size and complete apparent lack of aerodynamics. The most common nickname seems to be the "flying frog".
** Similarly, the Monkeylord is usually called the "Spider" or "Scorpion"
** UEF's experimental construction platform's official title "Fatboy" has lended to some players to [[FreudWasRight go there]]: "fatass!"
** T3 artillery are usually dubbed "Mini-Maves" after the UEF's gamebreakingly long-ranged Mavor experimental artillery.
** T1 bombers can be built practically right off the bat, very quickly, and are extremely fast, earning them a leading role in an age-old strategy, thus they are sometimes called the "flying Zerglings".
** Members of the official forums who were there from the beginning may have trouble recognising the Black Sun device by any name but "Solar Bean." Also expect tales of "Cyberg Spiders."
** Similarly, the UEF ACU missile launcher was so widely known as "Billy" that the name ended up officially used in ''Forged Alliance''.
** "Ghetto Gunship" -- An air transport loaded with light assault bots (which can shoot out of a transport), used as an improvised gunship early in the game.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Superman64}} Superman]]'' (or ''The New Superman [[GratuitousFrench Aventures]]'') for the {{Nintendo 64}} is often called "Superman 64", probably to distinguish it from other games with the same title and because of the pratice of Nintendo 64 games to [[SuperTitle64Advance have 64 in the title]]. The TV Tropes page is even ''named'' with the nickname. Note that it is unlikely that this game has enough legitimate fans.
