Awesome Mc Coolname: Fan Works

  • According to many Mary Sue and Marty Stu sporkers, this is the easiest way to spot such types of characters in Fanfics.
    • One obvious example is Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way from My Immortal. (Note the gratuitous apostrophe, and that "Dementia" is quite a lovely-sounding name so long as you ignore what the word means.)
      • ... which is why the name was used for a gag at the end of Addams Family Values.
      • Who will always be lovingly referred to as Enoby by fans and haters alike.
      • Even canon characters get new awesome names. Like Harry Potter being Vampire and Voldemort being renamed Satan Bombodil Andorson!
    • And then, you've got Mary Sues with names like "Chihuatlan Razortalon." Sure, "Razortalon" fits the model...but "Chihuatlan" invokes small yappy lapdogs rather than the exoticism for which the author was no doubt shooting.
    • Awesome de Britannia is about as unsubtle an example of this trope as they come.
    • Detsniy Off Skiword has given his characters such names. Most notable are Ronin, from The Hoen Jorneys, and Dusk, from Avance Wars 3 Yelow Comet Defence, who outright says he changed his name to Dusk since his original immigrant protection name of Darkness wasn't cool enough.
  • Laura Destinee Forgotten from Learning And Sburbing
  • In The Mad Scientist Wars we have the Tinker family, who all have this. For instance Andrew Omega-Particle prince Risk Tinker, or his son Frederic Zeta Risk Raize Tinker. This goes back pretty far- for instance, Grandpa Florian Blitz Viktor.
  • A character in numerous fanfics on the Phineas and Ferb Fanon Wiki is named Goldfish Darkskull.
  • All the Fullmetal Alchemist characters have ridiculously cool names. In the Elemental Chess Trilogy fanfic series, Riza Hawkeye gets an extra one. After she marries Roy Mustang, the men of their unit feel awkward calling her Hawkeye, but they also can't call her Mustang, so they refer to her by the affectionate nickname "Ladyhawk."
  • Frozen fic What About Witch Queen? has side-character called Bjorn Berg, who doesn't sound like an example until you realize that his name means Bear Mountain. (It may also double as a shout-out to Swedish-born tennic champion Björn Borg.
  • Despite the lukewarm reaction to the title character, it's hard to argue that the OCs of Knight of the Old Republic: The Prodigy of Revan have pretty kickass names.
  • Deserving has a character called Sin. The author apparently intended it to be a horrible name bestowed on the child by a father who hated him and his mother, and calling him that is allegedly a crossing of the Moral Event Horizon, but, well, Sin.
  • In With Strings Attached, we have the elf As'taris Farbound.
    • Who is promptly nicknamed by the four "Ass," "Asshole," Santa's Ass," and "Jeez-Ass" (after he gets resurrected).
  • The Dilgar War has captain Manly Power. At first the crew of the Space Race can't believe it, then they verify it and realize his crew has to call him Captain Power, and declare it the coolest name ever.
  • In Ebony Darkness Dementia Raven Way Vs Canon, everyone in the Mary Sue Extermination Association has a cool name—the most obvious being October Maynard and Aphrodite Adams.
  • Lightning Bolt and Thunder Flicker in Ace Combat The Equestrian War.
    • The former case is cool only because of her standing in the story as part of the main ensemble.
  • ADMIRAL Awesome Yonasomun Armageddon in Twillight Sparkle's awesome adventure.
  • Commander Sarmen Cuczoff of the Long Island PRT in Pokeumans
    • For simplicity, Mr. X.
  • The Wolf Hound called Hai in Bringing Me To Life, in Japanese Hai can mean 'Ocean' or 'Sea'. The not so awesome reason it was given, Hai peed all over the bed and one of his owners as a puppy.
  • Equestrylvania has plenty of examples. The list so far includes Shatterstorm, Tiger Cross, Roaring Yawn, Rose Blade, Whisper White, Eagle Eye... Really, we could be here all day.
