One other nickname that I think I should have included is the nickname I gave the Ctulhu in Symphony of the Night: Budgie, the exclamation: It is a huge demon thing with really small wings that remind me of my parrot, now I have an african grey and they are pretty big so I didn't name it after my parrot I instead named it "Budgie" because of how budgies look compared to Baxter (my parrot) I did name the Blue Crow in AoS Baxter after my bird.
Art not done by me.
Last night I lied down in my bed and looked up at the stars. Then I thought, "Wait, where the hell is the ceiling?"

When we were kids, me and a buddy of mine started calling the medusa heads in CV1 "Nana heads" because my grandma (Nana) bears a striking resemblance to the sprites for those. Still to this very day, over 16 years later, he can be playing a CV game and when they pop up, he says "aw shit, those damn Nana heads."

Always had a special name for death. I can't post it here.

This magic whip could be an example of advanced alien technology.

Not the most imaginative of nicknames, but I often call Alucard either 'Al' or 'Allie'.  I blame fanfiction. :)

I've called things by a "nickname" in the sense that I didn't read the manual and didn't know what the actual name was...but those aren't very amusing.  For instance, in CV 1:
(Real name - my name)
Eagles - Vultures
Fleamen - Hunchbacks
Ghosts - Flaming Skull
Ghouls - Zombies
Ravens - Birds/Crows
Panthers - I think I called them dogs for a little while.
Bone Towers - Bone Heads (okay...that could be kinda funny...boneheads)

So, kinda boring.  My "nicknames" generally still make sense. :-/

Fox Archer - Robin Hood
Ghoul - Gollum
Harpies - I remember my dad always called them just "bad guys" when I was a kid so that's what I remember them as.  :P
Richter - Metal Gear Belmont (Rondo of Blood outfit)
Ice Titan - Talos
Dracolich - Dragon Zombie
Succubus - Hot Damn
Paladin of God - Sniper of Goth
Skeleton Gunman - Tusken Raider

Ironically and amusingly enough this nick-name made it into CotM for one of the two bone towers.

lol, I can see that now you've mentioned it.

When I was a kid, playing the original NES game:

Fleamen - Monkey/Chimps (Tell me they don't look like chimps?)
Dracula - Eustace
Medusa - Neon Head
Pot Roast - Food (Yeah, simples as this. However, in portuguese, it sounds kinda silly to call it simply "food").
The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

My brothers and I would always refer to those enemies/items as monkeys and food (chicken), too.

Anyway, I had one for Sypha in Judgment but I can't post it here.

I'll assume it had something to do with her dislike of her own anatomy.
