* Parodied in ''ComicBook/RatMan'' with an one-panel joke: one of Rat-Man's old enemies was a guy named "Exclamation Man" whose symbol was a giant "'''!'''" and who put an exclamation mark after literally every single word of his speeches.

*''Fanfic/{{Forward}}'' uses it deliberately, depicting resident CloudCuckoolander River's thoughts with "Riverthink", consisting of randomly-placed italics, bold, underlining, and sudden switches to centered or right-aligned text.

** Our late I Am Not Making This Up section was an epic emphasis spam, not only in grammatical terms but by its very existence. It was a place that everyone could go to underscore how amazing/bizarre/hilarious events from entertainment could be, and, well, everything ended up underscored.
** Any sufficiently enthusiastic fandom will sprinkle exclamation points and italics here or there, especially when the work in question involves '''a lot of yelling.''' The italics seem to come out for particularly [[{{Gorn}} brutal]] or [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome extreme]] actions, though things that might be intense in [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh one fandom]] won't even register in [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} another.]]



** One can find EmphasisSpam in all its forms, including bold, italic, coloured text, different fonts, repeated letters (including letters that represent sounds that are hard if not impossible to extend, or that are silent) and multiple exclamation marks.
** TropesAreNotBad example: ''Fanfic/{{Forward}}'' is notorious for depicting resident CloudCuckoolander River's thoughts with "Riverthink", consisting of randomly-placed italics, bold, underlining, and sudden switches to centered or right-aligned text.



* Many sparks in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' talk like this.

SarcasmMode is used in print media for similar reasons.



* Literature/LordPeterWimsey's assistant Miss Climpson likes to emphasize everything with italics in her letters.[[note]]Actually single, double, and triple underlining, which in print translates to italics, small caps, and all caps respectively. Also lots of exclamation points.[[/note]] Since they usually only take up a few pages, it's more of a character quirk than an annoyance.

Wimsey lampshades it in at least one book, with a comment to the effect that to Miss Climpson, ''everything'' is epic.

* As mentioned, many descriptions on the TVTropes wiki itself fall into this. It's one of the hallmarks of DarthWiki/ThatTroper.

* MatthewReilly has a tendency to italicise too many verbs during the action sequences that take up the bulk of his novels.

** This was parodied in ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' making fun of soap strips, complete every third word being bolded.

* In over ten years of ''GeneCatlow'', there are maybe two sentences that don't end in either an exclamation point, a question mark, or an ellipsis. This can make the frequent [[WallOfText exposition]] frustrating to read, especially on an ArchiveBinge.

* British TV chefs such as Jamie Oliver and GordonRamsay are especially prone to this on their TV cooking shows. both will over-use superlatives continually to describe nice-looking, but perfectly ordinary, dishes that words like "incredible" and "superb" eventually lack significance.
