Latin Names are running gags at almost every Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner entry. Whenever the Coyote and Road Runner first appear on screen, the screen freezes, and their names appear, both in English and Latin, although the Latin names aren't really the exact translations.

The Latin names are however not found on any of the DFE-era Road Runner cartoons, especially the cartoons directed by Rudy Larriva. To date, the CGI Road Runner theatrical cartoons have not yet used any Latin names when describing the characters.
