Well, latest episode of Invincible, the "new Darkwing" was a bit touchy on the subject.

Everyone has their preferable word.
For me, assistant sounds more like Kevin to Robotnik etc than Tails to Sonic.

What kind of parents name their kids "Band Girl" or "The Fighter"?
I bet these characters came up with their own names because they thought it sounded cool but just sounded ridiculous.

That's why you can change the name.

Was that guy a Sith Lord or something?

Oh, they're placeholder names in the game?
OK.

Deadpool of Dorkly.

No, it's more like we can really type our name in the game so that the character in the game is just our avatar.
Back then we typed our name when we finished the game (or getting game over but our scores is good enough to put in the rank), and it's just three letters initial.
Right now sometimes it's the other way around, especially if there's online rank.
Some even could sync with cards that already have our data so that our name would appeared instantly without typing anything.

That's pretty cool. Though, if I was ever skilled at a retro arcade game, I would make the leader board like this:

1. NGG
2. EOI
3. VNV
4. ENE
5. RAU
6. UP_

Pictures from the IAAPA expo have surfaced—Rovio appears to be shopping around an amusement ride concept, titled "Red's Ride" (because of course it is).
