* In ''Manga/LuckyStar'' [[OtakuSurrogate Konata's]] friends are slightly puzzled that she ''doesn't'' ever talk that way in real life...but when she shows them what her chat logs look like they can barely recognize it as Japanese.
** There's also this "gatongo" person in Konata's friend list that fills his/her chat log with "wwww" (which is the Japanese equivalent of "lolo[=l=]olo[=l=]").
*** Enhanced in translation by certain fansub group: "roflcopterskatesbbq".

* Master Chief from the ''Machinima/ArbyNTheChief'' spends the entire series talking in this fashion. "Mai [=ROFLcar=] gos n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n..."
* The character Player from the {{machinima}} series ''Machinima/TheLeetWorld'' seems to speak pretty much just this, as does Leeroy sometimes. Player differenciates himself from Leeroy in that he actually does not speak literally, using text shown at the bottom of the screen or the Counter-Strike: Source radio commands (naturally, the game used for the machinima), and Leeroy uses it mostly only when speaking of [[WorldOfWarcraft 'World of Battlelore']], and is a {{Geek}} about it and computers. It is lampshaded by others asking the character Cortez, who is blind, how he can know what Player is saying (he doesn't know how himself). Westheimer has tried to say it himself, likely to trying to be 'on the same level' as Leeroy, as defacto [[TheCaptain captain]] of his team.
* The name [={SuP4hl33tk1LLa} CaP-a-CoP=] (spelling varied) is recycled in videos by director [[http://youtube.com/jsxanatos Xanatos]].
** Also parodied in a frag movie in Gman Squad [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG9UGesXmEg#t=7m38s episode 7]]
* Mortuus from ''Machinima/OxhornShortShorts'' has this as a persistent VerbalTic (yes, he pronounces the leetspeak ''aloud''). "Lol omg wtg dairy queen lol omg bbtheq..."

* {{Image Macro}}s typically use chatspeak captions (partly for comic effect, partly to minimize blocking of the image).
** The Orlies from ''{{Webcomic/Erfworld}}'' are a parody of the (in)famous O RLY owl Image Macro. They talk in snippets of chatspeak (e.g. one says "OMGWTFBBQ" as it's roasted by a [[PhantasySpelling dwagon]]).
