* This is kind of the whole ''point'' of ''Literature/FinnegansWake''. Joyce does it quite a bit in ''{{Ulysses}}'' as well, and to a lesser extent in his earlier fiction.

* Used to [[PlatformHell kill the player]] in ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'' - in [[TheVeryDefinitivelyFinalDungeon The Guy's Castle]], the [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Ryu]] room has a Windows XP error message pop up... [[spoiler:then drop down and kill you.]] Amusingly enough, the game has a tendency to actually crash.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', Fi gets a purple, cloudy text box with a diamond pattern.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanReturnOfTheCapedCrusaders'', Batman [[spoiler:gets drugged by Catwoman to turn him evil]]. As his disposition gets harsher, his HitFlash onomatopoeia shifts to words like "BLUDGEON" and "FRACTURE" to reflect the fact that he is delivering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown rather than merely subduing his foes as usual.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Music/AmandaPalmer The Dresden Dolls]] use some quirky, but meaningful, production techniques in the song "Coin-Operated Boy", which is about the superiority of vibrators to real boyfriends. The mix begins monophonic, but it abruptly widens to stereo during the line "I turn him on / And he comes to life". The performers imitate a BrokenRecord over the line "And I'll never be alone", signifying that this is the narrator's false repetition to herself. The end of the bridge features an intense ''rallentando'' to evoke the tapering end of an orgasm, a battery-powered device running out of juice, or more likely both.

* One of the earlier uses of this was in 1950s strip ''ComicStrip/{{Pogo}}'', which had one regular who spoke in gothic type to indicate his pomposity. Guests also often had their own font styles. Note that not only did ''Pogo'' [[CaptainObvious not use computer fonts]], it wasn't typeset, either. Those baroque, elaborate word balloons were ''lettered by hand'', because WaltKelly (or his assistant Henry Shikuma) was CrazyAwesome.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheReader2016'' has several pages with dirty fingerprints on them, a few with notes in the margins, and one notable paragraph that is entirely blotted out. It's one of the first hints that the book you're reading [[spoiler: is an excerpt of the book in the story]].

* Autotune was first used to correct errors in pitch. Many modern musicians use it to deliberately distort their voice so it's obvious that they're using Autotune, as well as for aesthetic effect, even when they're fully capable of singing themselves. [[StopHavingFunGuys Some people have expressed their distaste.]] It is also called a Vocoder when used to this effect.
