- In Slam Dunk, whenever any player gets mad at another character, namely:
- In K-On!, when Azusa can't stop laughing at Ritsu being cast as Juliet in a school play, Ritsu exclaims an annoyed "Nakano!," while putting her in a chokehold. The girls are all on First-Name Basis with each other, and this rare instance of last name only use is Played for Laughs.

- Daffy Duck in the animated film, Daffy Duck's Quackbusters, "CUBISH!"
