    • The fans like to call the eponymous main character "Pendie", "Agent P" or simply "P".

    • Pretty Princess 'Mantha - Samantha, whose popularity is largely attributed to her frilly and privileged lifestyle.

  • American Gods
    • Shadowpuppy - Shadow, combining that with the pet name his wife calls him "puppy".

      • To be fair, "Lady of the Green Kirtle" was what she called herself while she was still feigning benevolence. It wasn't supposed to sound evil.
    • Saviour Kitteh or Kitty Jesus - Aslan.
    • Warren - The Fanon name for the geeky boy who flirts with Phyllis Susan in The Movie.
