** ''Pokémon Omega Ruby'' and ''Pokémon Alpha Sapphire'' use this as a MythologyGag in the game's intro, where PROF. BIRCH uses the old style of POKéMON capitalization when the player character is watching his monologue on a GBA-like screen. The rest of the game uses proper capitalization like ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', however.

* One ''Franchise/AlienVsPredator'' graphic novel began with a scene where some scientists were examining the body of a dead ''Alien'':
--> '''Scientist #1''': "This creatures has an armoured exoskeleton and acidic blood.
--> '''Scientist #2''': "What sort of predator could this have evolved as a defence against?"

* 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).

* In ''JustForFun/PokemonVietnameseCrystal'', the entire game is written in all caps. This makes the nonsensical, TranslationTrainWreck dialogue of the game that much funnier.

* ''Boot'', the precursor to ''MaximumPC'', had one of the LettersToTheEditor complain about this. It contained semi-boldfaced words, and stated that the writer read the FIRST and LAST issue because they BOLDFACE every third WORD. The editor's reply was that you CAN'T win them ALL.

** RussellBrand, when dissecting an unflattering Sun article about him in his stand-up routine, drew the audience's attention to this trope. Some time afterwards, the Sun had another article about him, in which they seemingly {{lampshade|Hanging}}d it, emboldening words such as WAS and HAD.
