* {{Invoked|Trope}} by Alan Davies in the pilot episode of ''Series/{{QI}}'', leading to the above quote. When Alan answers a question by saying 'Adolf', it turns out that that answer was one of the pre-designated ones that make you lose points, so after Creator/StephenFry reveals the card reading 'Adolph', Alan protests with the page quote. This issue is also brought up in another episode, when Sean Lock asks 'can you tell if I'm spelling things wrong when I say them?' and Stephen Fry brings up Literature/{{Psmith}}.

On yet another occasion, Phil Jupitus discusses a hypothetical waiter named Steven, with Stephen commenting that he can tell it Phil was saying it with a "v".

* The villain Goda from ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex 2nd Gig'' manages to exemplify a Japanese take on Psmith Psyndrome. In his first appearance, he points out to Aramaki that most people read his name wrong and that his given name, written 一人 (normally read as "hitori"), is actually "Kazunodo." He also likes it, because after having been corrected once, people have a much easier time recalling his name later.

Some people [[MyNaymeIs spell their names differently from the usual spelling]]. Some people not only spell their names differently from the usual spelling, but can tell when somebody saying their name ''is spelling it wrong in his head''. It's as if they can infer the other person having an "incorrect" FunetikAksent.

* Franchise/KingdomHearts has the all-powerful X-Blade, sometimes pronounced Kai-Blade. However, most characters pronounced it Kee-Blade, like the signature Keyblade weapons. Somehow the characters know how to distinguish between the X-Blade and their normal Keyblades.

** Inverted when Durkon didn't prepare the Control Winds spell even though he knew they'd be going through the Windy Canyon. [[RuleOfFunny Somehow]], Durkon had thought the title referred to the canyon's "winding" passages. [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0837.html Lampshaded by V in the same strip]].
