Sometimes, the title of a work overshadows the main character. It's hard to fault someone ([[FandomBerserkButton even though people do all the time]]) for assuming ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' stars a green-clad elf named Zelda for both this reason and the fact that the game features no elves at all.[[note]]If you want to nitpick, they have [[PointyEars pointy elf ears]] but otherwise human bodies and personalities.[[/note]] The title of a work can be heard so much that the character names become footnotes in comparison. This is IAmNotShazam.

But what happens when the ''opposite'' occurs? What about when you've got an iconic character, the subject of a million parodies, whom anyone can caricature at a moment's notice, but no one can remember the name of the work they're in? You've got this trope. Iconic Character, Forgotten Title covers those character names that overshadow the title of their story.

Often, this will be lost in foreign language translations which use the character's name as the title instead of translating the original one.

!!Examples:

[[folder:Anime]]
* Parodied InUniverse at one point in ''Manga/LuckyStar'', when Kagami is looking for a "Lelouch" manga for Konata. "What the heck is a ''Anime/CodeGeass''?"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Art]]
* ''TheTreacheryOfImages'' by René Magritte is sometimes called "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" or "This is not a pipe".
* ''Arrangement in Grey and Black No.1''. Or as it's almost universally known, ''Whistler's Mother''.
* There's a Rembrandt's picture which is probably most properly called, 'The Company Of Captain Frans Banning Cocq And Lieutenant Willem Van Ruytenburch Preparing To March Out'. Or perhaps 'Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banninck Cocq'. Or even 'The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch'. No wonder everyone knows it as 'The Night Watch'.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* This happened early on with {{Superman}}. ''Action Comics'' was at first supposed to feature a variety of characters but Superman quickly [[IncrediblyLamePun took off]] and interviewing newstand owners revealed that kids were asking, not for Action Comics, but for "that comic book with Superman in it." Eventually, the title shifted to some variation of "Action Comics starring Superman" or "Superman in Action Comics." (Has shifted back and forth over the decades.) Of course, he has additional titles in his own name.
* A similar thing happened with ''DetectiveComics'' and Franchise/{{Batman}}.
* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' is primarily known as the comic with ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' in it, and has spawned a sister comic titled as such. ("Judge Dredd Megazine", that is, not "The Comic With Judge Dredd In It".)
* ''[[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUK Dennis the Menace]]'' has been headlining ''TheBeano'' since 1974.
** And like Judge Dredd, now has a Megazine in his own name.
* Similarly, ''Desperate Dan'' has been the main draw in ''ComicBook/TheDandy'' since 1984, with only a short interruption in 1999.
* The word ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'' just gets smaller and smaller, while the words "John Constantine" get larger and larger. Ironic, because the original title was chosen specifically because they didn't think anyone would know who Constantine was (despite his appearances in the ''Comicbook/SwampThing'').
* ''JourneyIntoMystery'' is another example of a book that was originally supposed to be an anthology but eventually became dominated by stories about its [[BreakoutCharacter most popular character]] before finally just being renamed for him. In this case, it became ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor.'' The title ''Journey Into Mystery'' has since been revived on occasion heavily featuring Thor's supporting characters as its focus, with the most recent run centering first on ComicBook/{{Loki}} and later Lady Sif.
* {{Popeye}} originally debuted as a bit player in Thimble Theatre, with Olive Oyl already well-established. Pretty soon after, Popeye became the main star, with Olive Oyl becoming his love interest over her original love, the [[{{Blondie}} Dagwood-like]] Harold Hamgravy.
* The [[MilestoneCelebration 100th issue]] of ''Tales Of Suspense'' saw the series renamed ''CaptainAmerica'', after the superhero who co-starred (alongside IronMan) since issue #59.
* Similarly, ''Tales to Astonish'' became ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'' with #102, after the character who'd been co-starring since issue #59.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Some people think ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' is actually called "Fievel" (and that's ''before'' you mention dubs which are). It doesn't help that it has a sequel called ''Fievel Goes West''.
* In-Universe example: While ''WreckItRalph'' is the eponymous character of the film, the actual game he hails from In-Universe is known as "Fix-It Felix Jr.".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The murderous doll Chucky from ''Film/ChildsPlay''. The ''Child's Play'' title is entirely lost in the fourth and fifth films, ''Bride of Chucky'' and ''Seed of Chucky'',but even before that most people simply referred to the films as the Chucky movies rather than Child's Play
* The ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' and ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' movies are better known as the Jason and Freddy movies respectively. Especially since ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' came out. It doesn't help that several of the sequels don't have the words "[=13th=]" or "Elm Street" in their titles.
* Everyone knows Film/TheThreeStooges, but considerably fewer people can name any of their 190 films.
* The first film that featured SylvesterStallone's character John Rambo was called ''Film/FirstBlood''. The second was called ''RamboFirstBloodPartII''. The third movie then became ''RamboIII'', and the fourth was simply called ''Film/{{Rambo}}''.
* Coffin Joe. Arguably, that name's a ''lot'' more memorable than any of the [[GoryDeadlyOverkillTitleOfFatalDeath actual film titles]].
* The first ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' movie was just called ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk.'' This changed with the sequels. Indeed, even ''Raiders'' gets retrofitted with an "Indiana Jones and the..." in some places (including, notably, its DVD release.)
* The same thing happened with ''Film/PitchBlack'' and the subsequent ''Franchise/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'' series.
* The theme tune to ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' [[TitleDrop drops the film title in the lyrics]], but is actually titled "Nobody Does it Better".
* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' was in fact the first Batman film not to feature the word "Batman" in the title, but (rather understandably) it was often assumed that the title of the film was ''Batman: The Dark Knight'' (which was actually used in some countries) or something to that effect. Just as frustratingly, ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' has been called ''The Dark Knight'' by people who can't remember the full title.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Ebenezer Scrooge from ''Literature/AChristmasCarol''. Several adaptations have actually been called "Scrooge".
* Svengali from ''Literature/{{Trilby}}''. Several film adaptations have been titled ''Svengali''.
* Literature/JamesBond in all his novels and films. None of the major titles, and nearly none in general, have included the words "James Bond". Averted in the Brazilian translations of the film titles, which are always on the form "[[CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase 007 and X]]", where X are translations of the English titles with varying degrees of accuracy.
* Willy Wonka from ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory''. This is probably thanks to the 1971 movie and a candy brand being named after him. Also sometimes mistaken as The Candy Man, from the song of the same name featured in the film. Not to be confused with the other ''Film/{{Candyman}}''.
* Hannibal Lecter from ''Literature/RedDragon'' and ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs''. The two books that followed were named after him.
* Literature/SherlockHolmes. Undoubtedly, nearly everyone has heard the character name, but only a significant minority could list the titles of any of the stories he appears in, with ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheBaskervilles'' being the most likely candidate.
* More people recognize {{John Carter of Mars}} than any of the stories he was in (save, perhaps, the last one which had a CharacterTitle).
* In a curious case of promotional and marketing efforts gone awry, in the early 1930s Street and Smith had Radio/TheShadow serve as narrator for the Detective Story Hour in hopes of drawing attention to the Detective Story Magazine. Several listeners went to newsstands asking for the "Shadow Magazine". Street and Smith decided to roll with it and hired Walter Gibson to create the "Kent Allard Shadow".
* Kunta Kinte from ''Roots''.
* Long John Silver from ''TreasureIsland''.
* If you can't remember ''TheLegendOfSleepyHollow'', most people will understand if you just refer to its HeadlessHorseman.
* And how many people know that "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle" are just two of the stories in ''The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.''? Most editions of that book feature an illustration of one of those two stories on the cover.
* OlderThanRadio: The Armenian folktale ''The Daredevils of Sassoun'' is commonly just called ''David of Sassoun'' after the main character, despite the real title sounding much cooler.
* Even the Wikipedia page starts with "''Literature/RobinsonCrusoe'' is a novel by Daniel Defoe..." The actual title was:
--> ''[[LongTitle The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver’d by Pyrates.]]''
* ''Literature/GulliversTravels''. While his name is still in the title, it's not just "Gulliver's Travels". The full title was: "Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World in Four Parts by Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then Captain of Several Ships."
** And many adaptations belie even the shortened title by having Gulliver visit only Lilliput. It's supposed to be ''Travels'' plural, not ''Travel''.
* Newcomers who want to start reading the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' books may have to dig around a bit before they learn that the first book in the series is titled, simply, ''On Basilisk Station''.
* ''JourneyToTheWest'': The story seems more well known by its main character Sun Wukong, or the Monkey King. Some translations even call the story Monkey instead.
* DonQuixote (original title: ''The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha ("El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha"'' in the original Spanish). OlderThanSteam.
* ''TheRailwaySeries'' is frequently referred to as ThomasTheTankEngine, albeit as much due to the breakout television series of the same name (one instalment of the series was in fact called Thomas The Tank Engine however, as does some of the novels' merchandise use the show's moniker).
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* Late night talk shows are often known by the name of the current host. For instance, for many years ''Series/TheTonightShow'' was referred to more often as "Johnny Carson". People are more likely to say, "John Smith is on ''[[Creator/DavidLetterman Letterman]]'' tonight" than "John Smith is on ''Late Show'' tonight."
** Granted, it could be argued that since the show titles are often appended with "with David Letterman" or "with Jay Leno" that they're still valid shortenings. Then again, people tend to omit/forget ''that'' part when referring to the show's title (e.g. "The Late Show" and not "The Late Show with David Letterman,") making this a possible case of AccidentallyAccurate.
** ''Series/{{Conan}}'' may be a parody of this phenomenon, because that is in fact [[OneWordTitle the show's full name]]. Creator/ConanOBrien even joked that he named it that so that [[TakeThat nobody could replace him on the show]].
* The show is called ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'', not ''Ultraman Jack'' after its title hero. Most people call it by its eponymous hero though.
* What show did the character Sergeant Bilko appear in? No, not ''Sergeant Bilko'' (except [[SyndicationTitle in syndication]] and [[TheFilmOfTheSeries the film version]]) but ''ThePhilSilversShow'' or ''You'll Never Get Rich''.
* Many people referred to ''AllInTheFamily'' as "Archie Bunker" back in the day. Later on, the series was re-tooled, slightly re-set, and became "Archie Bunker's Place".
* UK crime series ''MidsomerMurders'' features Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby, Causton CID as the chief protagonist of every episode and apparent point of the whole show, causing some people to just call the show "Barnaby."
* ''FamilyMatters'' was often misnamed "The Urkel Show" by viewers because Steve Urkel, originally a minor character, became a very successful BreakoutCharacter.
* This trope is almost certainly why Game Show Network named its revival of ''PressYourLuck'' (AKA "Whammy" or "The Whammy Show"), "Whammy: The All-New Press Your Luck".
* {{Cold Open}}ing into the ShowWithinAShow led many people to refer to ''HomeImprovement'' as ''Tool Time''.
** Alternately, there are many people who just assume that the ShowWithinAShow that the main character is the host of is also called "Home Improvement."
* ''KeepingUpAppearances'' is universally referred to as "Mrs. Hyacinth" in Denmark (even though it does have an offical translated name, and that, when you think about it, "Mrs. Hyacinth" is a case of ''IAmNotShazam'')
* A lot of people seem to think that ''SecretDiaryOfACallGirl'' is titled "Belle du Jour", which in actual fact is the pseudonym of its main character, played by Billie Piper. The confusion might also be because the blog the show was based on was called "Belle du Jour".[[note]]"Belle du Jour" is French for "girl of the day", and was the title of a famous French art movie about an upper-class hooker.[[/note]]
* Many people will refer to ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' as "The Bundys" or just ''Al Bundy''.
* When the popularity of the first incarnation of ''Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' was at its peak, some people were just calling the show "Regis". Which was funny, considering that Creator/{{ABC}} already had another show featuring Regis Philbin that ''did'' have his name in the title.
* {{In-Universe}} example: In the movie ''Film/RainMan'', the titular character made it a point to watch ''Series/ThePeoplesCourt'' every day. At the time, the court was presided over by Judge Wapner. One of Rain Man's catchphrases was "10 minutes to Wapner".
* Young children often referred to ''Series/FullHouse'' as "The Baby Michelle Show", because that's who they watched it to see.
* This tends to happen a lot with HorrorHost[=s=], because the titles of the shows themselves tend to be fairly generic--there are dozens of ''Shock Theater''s and ''Creature Features''s, so it's far easier to specify what the name of the host is. Even the more creative ones can't seem to avoid this, though--plenty of people remember {{Svengoolie}} from the seventies, but only a small handful of fans would be able to tell you his show was called ''Screaming Yellow Theater''.
* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' has two big examples: Series/KamenRiderSkyrider originated in a show simply called ''Kamen Rider'' because it was intended to be a ContinuityReboot (a plan which ultimately fell through), while Film/KamenRiderZX originated in a TV movie called ''Birth of the 10th! All Kamen Riders Assembled!''. Fans (and this very Wiki) tend to refer to the shows by their stars' names for simplicity's sake.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* What's the strip about the mountain-dwelling moonshiner with the large wife and baby named Tater? ''ComicStrip/SnuffySmith'', of course. Except its actual full title for decades was ''Barney Google & Snuffy Smith''. Initially it was just ''Barney Google'', and it was about Barney, a horse racer. Once he met the Smith clan in the 30's, they became incredibly popular, Snuffy even being added to the title, until Barney was completely written out. Eventually he was dropped from the title, but not until years had passed wherein he didn't even appear. His name was usually written in tiny font above Snuffy's name.
* Charlie Brown from ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''. ExecutiveMeddling produced the name ''Peanuts''[[note]]The reason given by the syndicate was they believed "Peanuts" was slang for "children", something Schulz had never heard before. They probably thought this because the made-up-of-kids studio audience on the ''Howdy Doody'' show (very popular at the time) was famously referred to as "The Peanut Gallery"; however, that term actually has its origins in Vaudeville[[/note]], and Charles Schulz reportedly hated it (he had named it ''Li'l Folks'' after his first strip from 1947-1950, but there were already two strips with similar-sounding names – the now-unknown ''Little Folks'', and the very popular ''Li'l Abner''). So not only do most of the animated specials and book collections include "Charlie Brown" in the title, but the title panels on the Sunday strips for many years said ''Peanuts featuring '''GOOD OL' CHARLIE BROWN'''''. Also applies to Snoopy.
** Well averted with the animated shorts – ''The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show'' – and all major features – ''[phrase], Charlie Brown''.
** In Italy it's known as "Linus" by most readers, mostly because of a publication of the same name.
** In Brazil there is an attempt to equal character and title by making Charlie Brown nicknamed "Minduim" (from amendoim, "Peanut").
** On a related note, most people know that famous Music/VinceGuaraldi jazz piece only as "The Charlie Brown Theme". Its actual title is "Linus and Lucy".
** The irony of that is there's a Guaraldi song ''actually called'' "Charlie Brown Theme" (listen to it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80ojk1dwbos here]]) and it has been included on a number of albums (including the first one released in 1963), but it takes a while to find on the internet due to people confusing it with "Linus and Lucy", which was released on the same first album.
* Caspar Milquetoast from ''The Timid Soul''. "Milquetoast" has even entered the lexicon as a term for a weak, submissive person.
* By the 80's, the title character of ''Moon Mullins'' had become a supporting character in his own strip. Much of the action was focused on the couple who owned the boarding house he lived in, "Lord" and "Lady" Plushbottom.
* Both ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' and ''Outland'' were known for Opus, so the third comic strip with him became just ''Opus''.
* The comic strip ''Thimble Theater'' is hardly known today, but one of its characters, ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} is quite well known, probably because he later got an animated series.
* There are many who think the comic strip ''ComicStrip/{{Blondie}}'' is called ''Dagwood'', since he's become the main character rather than Blondie.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Pogo}}'' had so many well-loved and memorable supporting characters that the title character could go weeks at a time hardly appearing, and just being a part of the action when he did, rather than the focus. Many people have referred to it as ''Albert'', ''Churchy'' or just "that political cartoon set in a swamp." Of course, Pogo's status as the swamp's OnlySaneMan often had him delivering the Aesop or solving the problem.
* ''ComicStrip/GasolineAlley'' initially was about an auto mechanic named Walt Wallet. One morning he found a baby on his doorstep, named him Skeezix for some reason, and the baby actually grew up in real time, becoming a boy, young man, grown man with a wife and kids and later a grandfather. The action began to center around Skeezix so much, with Walt becoming a supporting character and eventually written out, it should be no surprise that after not much time, the comic became known as ''Skeezix''.
* The ancient strip ''ComicStrip/BringingUpFather'' centered on Jiggs, an Irish hod carrier who came into the United States as a millionaire thanks to winning a sweepstakes. Also prominent is Jigg's disapproving wife Maggie. The strip has been referred to as ''Jiggs'', ''Jiggs and Maggie'' or ''Maggie and Jiggs'' almost exclusively, almost never by its actual title.

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Sadie Thompson from ''Rain''. This was due to the [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode Hays Office]], which wouldn't let the word "rain" be used anywhere in the 1932 film in the hopes of [[AdaptationDisplacement downplaying the connection to the notoriously salacious source material]]. However, "Miss Thompson" was the title of the short story the play was based on.
* Does anyone even remember the name of the play that gave us Mrs. [[{{Malaproper}} Malaprop]]? No? Okay, it was Joseph Brinsley Sheridan's ''The Rivals''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* It was very common to refer to the N64 shooter ''VideoGame/GoldenEye1997'' as "Bond", "007", or "Franchise/JamesBond" in the 90s. Prior to the 2011 re-do, terminology had generally settled on "Goldeneye".
* The ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' series is commonly referred as the "Phoenix Wright" series. This is sort of a justified case, as "Ace Attorney" was originally the subtitle of the first game in the series, ''[[CharacterTitle Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney]]''.[[note]] In the West, at least. The series has always been called ''Gyakuten Saiban'' ("Turnabout Courtroom") in its native Japan.[[/note]] When it became obvious that the fourth game in the series would have a new protagonist, the localization staff did the best they could in promoting ''Ace Attorney'' as the main title of the franchise, while keeping ''Phoenix Wright'' title for the first two sequels, resulting in the [[ColonCancer overly long titles]] of ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All'' and ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials & Tribulations''. Even when the title of the fourth game was announced to be ''Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice'', people kept referring to the new instalment as the "fourth Phoenix Wright game". Which is HilariousInHindsight, if you consider that Phoenix ended up as a One-Man SpotlightStealingSquad in said fourth game, despite losing his protagonist status, which he regained by the [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies fifth]].
* ''Franchise/TombRaider'''s Lara Croft is about halfway there. The Tomb Raider name is still well-known, but the character has become very recognizable to people who don't play games, which is probably why the movies were called ''Film/LaraCroftTombRaider''.
** The 2nd and 3rd games are also named ''Tomb Raider II Starring Lara Croft'' and ''Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft'' respectively.
* Thanks to Capcom's ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Vs.]]'' series, this has unfortunately happened to [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan Aensland]]. There is also [[{{Strider}} Strider Hiryu]], although it's mittigated by the fact that he did recieve a reboot in 2014.
* Similar to Morrigan, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' has done this for several obscure Creator/{{Nintendo}} characters, among them [[VideoGame/EarthBound Ness]], [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain Falcon]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Roy]], and [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]]. However, ''SuperSmashBros'' has also increased the popularity of those series for many people.
* Nameko ([[DubNameChange AKA Funghi]]) has become such a popular mascot character in Japan that some can't recall the game it originated from: TouchDetective.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Dick Dastardly, the epitome of the [[DastardlyWhiplash moustache-twirling villain]]. What series did he star in, again? Admit it: it took you a moment to remember ''WackyRaces''. [[DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines The pigeon-hunting spin-off]] does not help things. Better known as Stop The Pigeon (after the theme song).
* During the first few seasons of ''TheSimpsons'', back when Bart was the [[BreakoutCharacter most popular character]] and most of the episodes focused on him, it was not uncommon for people to refer to the show as "The Bart Simpson Show". He appeared on various t-shirts and merchandise, and was even the star of several video games. In the years since Bart's popularity died out, people now consider Homer to be the most iconic character of the series and are now less likely to use an informal name for the series.
* ''{{Metalocalypse}}'' is commonly referred as "Dethklok", after the cartoon band in which the show is centered around. The WorkingTitle was actually ''Dethklok Metalocalypse'' before they decided to shorten it to just ''Metalocalypse'', but since many people are not sure on how to pronounce "Metalocalypse" correctly, they simply refer to the show as "Dethklok" as well.
* The ''DynomuttDogWonder'' show is more commonly referred as "Blue Falcon & Dynomutt" or simply "Blue Falcon".
* A number of people mistake the name of ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' as ''Jem and the Holograms'' because that's the actual name of the band she performs with in the show. It doesn't help that the [=DVDs=] have the longer title written on their covers. Even [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/nostalgia-chick/31375-jem-and-the-holograms The Nostalgia Chick]] did this when reviewing the show.
* Some people who haven't seen ''KaBlam'' in a while refer to it at times as "The Henry and June Show" (Which was actually a proposed (and failed) spin-off)
* JustForFun/CandleJack and the associated meme is far more memorable than...[[spoiler: Than the show he came from? That was WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* The actor Sylvester [=McCoy=] (born Percy Kent-Smith) got his stage name this way. Some of his earlier work was as a sidekick/warm-up man to the stand-up comedian-cum-performance artist KenCampbell, as a fictional character called "Sylveste [=McCoy=]". To further the joke, his character was credited in the playbill as "Sylveste [=McCoy=] as Sylveste [=McCoy=]". One reviewer didn't get the joke and used it in the review as if it was his real name, so he went with it and used it as his stage name from then on (though adding an "r" to the end - no, those weren't typos earlier).
* The Nehi Corporation used to make a line of popular fruit-flavored sodas (the one most commonly known today is the Grape Nehi, Radar's favorite soda in ''Series/{{Mash}}''). In 1955, as the soda market changed to favor colas over everything else, they changed their name to their new star brand, Royal Crown (although they kept the name for their fruit-flavored products; you can still find and purchase Nehi soda to this day). Currently, however, both Nehi and Royal Crown Cola (typically shortened to just RC nowadays, as seen on packaging) are owned by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group in the United States, with the company also distributing 7-Up there, though RC is still quite popular in the South and Midwest.
