* The ''Plain Truth'', the house magazine of a particularly strange fringe-Christian denomination[[note]]his Worldwide Church of God, a rather dogmatic and autocratic denomination, achieved mass circulation by distributing the magazine for free at news-stands round the world[[/note]], was OVERLY FOND of this! Church fuhrer Herbert W. Armstrong was ''SO CONCERNED'' that his readership understood the ONE TRUE WAY OF GOD that not a sentence went by without '''[[EmphasizeEverything EMPHASIS]]''' being placed on the KEY POINTS of the '''GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!''' Brethren, do NOT let yourselves be '''DECEIVED''' by FALSE PROPHECY!

* ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'': The ''massive'' [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/HERO HERO]] archetype has its namesake capitalized throughout its many sub-archetypes: 'Elemental HERO', 'Destiny HERO', 'Masked HERO', and so on. In fact, several monsters had to have their carts reprinted just to have part of their name capitalized from 'Hero' to 'HERO'. To take this even further, cards like [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Oscillo_Hero Oscillo Hero]] are ''not'' part of the archetype simply because the name isn't in all caps.

* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' uses this at least {{OnceAnEpisode}} to great effect, even {{BreakingTheFourthWall}} with its trademark '''HUGE RED BLOCK KANJI''' on occasion.

* Every single comic published by Archie Comics (such as Betty, Jughead, Sonic, etc) comic uses excessive bold, often on unimportant words. Also uses the convention of exclamation points instead of periods. Apparently the people of Riverdale are constantly screaming out of rhythm. Their Sonic comic has at least gotten better about it since Ian Flynn took over writing. The rest, eh...

* An issue of ''Comicbook/SpiderMan'' had a scene lampshading this. Doctor Doom was being escorted through an airport by two American security agents, one of whom was Comicbook/CaptainAmerica in disguise. Dr. Doom threatens the two agents and [[ThirdPersonPerson refers to himself in the third person]], with DOCTOR DOOM stylized. Cap asks, "How do you do that... [[PaintingTheMedium talk in all]] capitals like [[MediumAwareness that]]?"

* Comics writer Creator/GeoffJohns (''Franchise/TheFlash'', ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'', ''Franchise/GreenLantern'') has a tendency to place the emphasis on words at odd places in a sentence for no apparent reason. It's not that bad, but it does make one scratch their head from time to time. The same goes for Creator/{{Frank|Miller}} [[Creator/FrankMiller Miller]].
* Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}}'s [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]] and Throg (Frog-Thor) speak in a different text, due to them being Gods. Interestingly, Ares doesn't.
** The Asgardian font is meant to represent the All-Tongue. Asgardians do not speak English or any other Earthly language, but rather a magical language that can be understood by all people, and that is what the font (and archaic phrasing) is meant to show. However, some letterers/writers sometimes apply the font to Asgardian characters who should not be speaking the All-Tongue at that time, such as the recent addition of Angela.

** Originally, [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} POKéMON]][[note]]For those wondering why the é in [=POKéMON=] is left uncapitalized, it's because the font the games use leaves no room for an accent mark over a capital E.[[/note]] games wrote the names of every proper noun in all caps. In other words, you play as a [=POKéMON=] TRAINER in the KANTO, JOHTO or HOENN region on a quest to get every BADGE from every GYM LEADER and eventually take on the ELITE FOUR, having to go through the likes of TEAM ROCKET, TEAM AQUA, or TEAM MAGMA on the way. Diamond and Pearl ended this practice, but their generation still capitalized the names of individual Pokémon due to backward compatibility with the GameBoyAdvance games, which use the old method of capitalization (for example, Diamond and Pearl would still say PIKACHU instead of Pikachu, but would say Town Map instead of TOWN MAP). Black and White did away with this as well, meaning no more ALL CAPS at all (for example, a pre-release screenshot of the starter selection refers to the fire starter as Tepig instead of TEPIG, and battle screenshots are similarly capitalized).

** This gets [[{{Narm}} unintentionally hilarious]] in the ending of ''Ocarina of Time'', when Ganondorf screams at you in ALL CAPS. Because you can [[HelloInsertNameHere rename Link to anything you want]], it doesn't affect your protagonist's name at all. Thus, it all comes off like a HongKongDub in a dramatic moment. "CURSE YOU, ZELDA! CURSE YOU, SAGES! CURSE YOU, Link!"

* Some printings of Literature/TheBible, particularly the King James Version, use italics to denote words added by the translators that were not present in the original Greek or Hebrew (usually added to better follow English grammar and thus make it more readable). Some media use [brackets] instead. This results in the odd effect of having minor articles and prepositions "emphasized" while the key words of the text are plain.

It's also not uncommon for print editions of the Bible to use red for the name of God or the word "Lord" when it refers to him.
