Added DiffLines:

**The show's mascots may also count. It's never come up onscreen one way or another, but WordOfGod persistently refers to them as simply Maus, Elefanten & Ente (mouse, elephant and duck).

Added DiffLines:

* Series/DieSendungMitDerMaus: "Trude und ihr Tier". (May count as subversion, as Tier[[note]]Animal[[/note]] is no animal anyway, but belongs to BenevolentMonsters.) An episode to name him ended in a fail. (And [[CatchPhrase there where he comes from]] he probably has one anyway.)


* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'': The barnyard dog in the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons (and at least one Goofy Gophers cartoon) is simply named Barnyard Dawg.

** The Gems all look humanoid but it's been shown their physical forms are [[HardLight an illusion]] and they're literally just their gemstone. So we have a pearl named "Pearl", a ruby named "Ruby", etc., despite the fact that there are [[PlanetOfSteves more than one of each type]]. In cases of confusion, they seem to use serial numbers - for instance, the "main" Amethyst is revealed to be named [[YouAreNumberSix Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XM.]] The only exceptions are [[BigBadDuumvirate the Diamonds]], who add colors to their names, and the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Ruby squad]], who Steven nicknames to distinguish them. "Navy" even uses her nickname herself a few times.
