* Used extensively in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'', not only for writing but also in the SpeechBubbles of characters speaking foreign languages. Egyptians speak in hieroglyphics, Normans in the suitably Scandanavian-styled alphabet (with å and ø for a and o), Greeks uses the proto-Greek angular font, the Goths in blackletter, the Amerindians in pictographs, and Romans tend to get into Trajan-esque capitals when getting eloquent (with V replacing U). Attempts by characters to speak another language are often shown as written in the appropriate font, but jumbled-up or ragged.

This was often used when a character spoke in a language those around him didn't understand, but the words were written in the language of the reader.

Compare TheBackwardsR. See TranslationConvention for the spoken version. This is the visual equivalent of JustAStupidAccent. If the font is so weird that you can't make out what the letters are meant to be, it's {{Wingdinglish}}.

* In ''BlueBeetle'', the Scarab-speak letters correspond to English, but they're almost entirely illegible. However, when the Scarab gets CharacterDevelopment, the letters change into more readable English while still invoking the previous version.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Turn Left", the signs saying [[spoiler:Bad Wolf]] are in English but in a Chinese-looking font.
** In ''The Fires of Pompeii'', all writing is rendered in English in a Latin-looking font.
** Justified in-universe, as the TARDIS automatically translates languages, both spoken and written, into the language the companion speaks.
*** Hold on - English *is* written in a Latin-looking font, one that looks so Latin-looking it's actually *called* Latin.
* In the ''Doctor Who'' episode "The End of the World", "Have a Nice Day" is seen on the Doctor's parking/valet ticket for the Tardis, in an extremely stylised 'futurefont', echoed in various other writings seen in that episode.
