Pretty sure Yamada-kun counts as well. If not, then the overlap with Meaningful Name needs to be resolved
This and Meaningful Name look one and the same to me. If that's the case, we should start a TRS thread on it.
Not all Meaningful Names have a pun, not all Punny Names have any other meaning.
After I made an edit to "Western Animation" on this page, "Real Life" became messed up. It is no longer hidden in a folder and nothing I can see with the folder control formatting would have messed it up. Tinkering with the folder control formatting did nothing to fix.
I know this trope has a lot of overlap with Meaningful Name, but I am wondering: if for example, someone with fire-based elemental powers, named Charlie * a la Firestarter, Ashly, Bernadette, or Blaze, or with the surname Cook, would either be this trope or Meaningful Name. Most really just have a homophone for a fire-related word in them (or are homophones for burning/fire in the case of the last two), so it's hard to say which one they'd fall under.
Yu Yu Hakusho seems to have characters with these kind of names (i.e. Kuwabara).
I went ahead and removed some completely gratuitous Take Thats at the English dub of Pokémon. This trope is about puns, not about a work's dubbing quality.
Trying to figure out if the performance being discussed here on The Other Wiki (it is the only reference I can find to it) counts as this.
This article needs to be cleaned up. A lot of the examples contain unnecessary instances of Complaining About Puns You Don't Like.
These are probably not examples. It is not explained how Dumbledore is like a bumblebee in a way that makes it a pun. For Flitwick, having a name that sounds good is not a pun.
This is probably not an example: an open reference is not a pun.

How well does it match the trope?
