* In ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'', green text in dialogue or a description usually indicates a tooltip describing something [[PlayerCharacter the Fatebinder]] should already know, but the player may not know or immediately recall. Bits of lore an educated person like the Fatebinder would have been taught, memories from before the game's start, and so forth. But there's two other uses:
** The Voices of Nerat can also use the same text to telepathically communicate to the Fatebinder. Usually [[TwoFacedAside quips at Graven Ashe's expense]].
** Messing with Lantry's cerulean ink [[MushroomSamba causes quite a synesthetic trip]], with the tooltips offering bizarre commentary and potentially prophetic hints.

*** MissionControl also tells Snake to utilize all of his senses to their fullest, including taking in the scents of the environment. The obvious difficulty, as Snake points out, is that he can't smell. At all.

* In TheGeneral series by David Drake, S.M. Stirling and Eric Flint, some of the characters mentally communicate with an artificially intelligent computer (The other "ghost" that appears later in the series is just a simulation run by that computer.) The strangeness of its manner of speaking is described in detail, and its statements are written in bold and without capital letters. Even more interesting, sometimes The Center _uses_ capitals. And characters comment on that.

* ''[[KaneAndLynch Kane And Lynch 2: Dog Days]]'' is presented as if someone just decided to start filming right behind a madman with a gun. Brutal headshots (and nudity) get censored, [[CameraAbuse the camera drops if you die, digital artifacts are everywhere]], a timestamp appears, and during one explosion in the demo, the frame rate drops incredibly, the camera gets almost entirely pixelated, and the fake camera man almost gets knocked off his feet.

* ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch'' has a scene where the film starts to burn and HulkHogan comes out to yell at the Gremlins to start the movie back up. The VHS version features a different scene in its place, with your VCR breaking and JohnWayne ([[FakeShemp depicted via archival footage where he is dubbed over by Chad Everett]], since Wayne was dead by the time of the VHS release) and a WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cameo instead of Hulk Hogan.

Added DiffLines:

* In novels of ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' nearly all SpaceMarine [[ManInTheMachine Dreadnoughts]] are depicted speaking in [[AC:'''[[BoldInflation bold text]] like this''']]. Example: [[Literature/SpaceWolf Bjorn the Fell-Handed]] in ''Battle of the Fang''. This is a justified case, as Dreadnoughts are MiniMecha with a critically wounded SpaceMarine inside, with their voices being amplified via speakers, and the bold text is the only way to render this well in text. The games featuring Dreadnoughts avert this, instead being able to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdA0oRQdltI properly depict a]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gX2FjJm2_YA Dreadnought's]] [[BadassBaritone mechanically bass voice]].

** In the beginning of the sequel, an illustration of Alice going Through the Looking-Glass is matched up on the other side of the leaf with an illustration of her arrival. The second of these illustrations -- the one showing Alice's arrival in Looking-Glass House -- has Sir John Tenniel's distinctive monogram ''mirror-reversed''.

** ''ImAMarvelAndImADC'' naturally has some fun with this when Deadpool shows up: he ponders in yellow captions how bad the stop motion animation is and asks for a better editing software.

* In the crossover where [[SpiderMan Peter Parker]] meets [[Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan Miles Morales]], when in the main MarvelUniverse, everyone speaks in all caps. When in the UltimateMarvel universe they speak in the font used for most UltimateMarvel works.

* ''http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/TheDeadlyTowerOfMonsters'' purports to be a cheesy sci-fi B-Movie from the early 1970's, with bad effects. At one point you acquire a pair of scissors and use them to cut the strings that monsters are suspended by.
