* ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasons'':
** Jack: The first, and previously most common, protagonist. He's called "Pete" several times in canon, but "Jack" took off due to the SNES "Jack and the Beanstalk" styled scene. The name is used for most other male protagonists, despite most having their own names too.
** Jill: The ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife Another Wonderful Life]]'' protagonist. It goes with Jack's name. Her canon name is "Pony" but it's [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude atypical sounding]]. The name is also sometimes used to refer to the blond protagonist from ''Back to Nature For Girl'' (who is officially called "Claire").
** Hansel and Gretel: The protagonists of ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonGrandBazaar Grand Bazaar]]''

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'':
** "Madou-era"/"Compile-era" (1989-2000) to refer to Compile's ''Puyo Puyo'' and ''Madou Monogatari'' games, and "SEGA-era" (2001-onwards) to refer to Sonic Team's ''Puyo Puyo'' games.
** "OPP" (as in '''O'''riginal '''P'''uyo '''P'''uyo) is the most common shorthand for the first arcade game.
** To differentiate the SEGA Saturn installment of ''Madou Monogatari'' from other games, it it commonly given different nicknames such as "Mado'''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS h]]''' Monogatari", "Madou Monogatari Saturn", or "Madou Monogatari SS".
** "Rally Mode" refers to both ''Tsu's'' Expert ([[TitleDrop Tsu]]) Mode and ''Box's'' Scramble Mode, both being character gauntlets with definite start and endpoints unlike the endless competitive modes in ''Pocket Puyo Puyo~n'' and the Anniversaries.
** For a time, ''Madou Monogatari I'' for the Mega Drive was referred to as "Madou Monogatari: Genesis."
** Some fans like to refer to Possessed Klug as Aya or Ayashii (inspired by his Japanese name Ayashii Kuru-ku), since the demon still lacks a proper name in canon. "Strange" is another common one, as it derives from the translation for his Japanese name, Strange Klug.
** In Japanese, Ragnus/Lagnus's name (ラグナス) has the kana for eggplant (なす), so Japanese fans will often draw an eggplant beside him or refer to him as Eggplant. Similarly, the English community sometimes gives him nicknames revolving around the word "lasagna".
** "Pedobear" for Risukuma.
** "Tara Stacking," "Harpy Stacking," and "Frog Stacking" refer to the act of mimicking the strategy of a CPU-controlled Suketoudara, Harpy, and Nohoho respectively.
** Crossing this with UnfortunateName is "Harassment," the name given to the act of sending small amounts of garbage to slow or stop the construction of the opponent's main chain. The fandom didn't really catch onto the "unfortunate" part until Sega's tutorial video covering this technique generated snark from the gaming community at large.

May or may not have anything to do with a similar scene in Proxicide's famous fanwork ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4-js6TKPBc Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat 3]]'', which garnered similar effects. Needless to say, [[InternetBackdraft the fans are not pleased]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'': "Literally No Man's Sky" or "No Multiplayer in the Sky", coined after its release to mock its lack of an actual multiplayer mode which caused the game to tank extremely hard during its first year of existence. The game got much better following ''No Man's Sky NEXT'', so this nickname is not as used anymore.
