* "The Typewriter" by Leroy Anderson, possibly better known as the theme of ''Radio/TheNewsQuiz''. According to Anderson, the typewriter is played by a drummer, because actual typists can't go fast enough.

* In the StevenSeagal film ''Film/UnderSiege2DarkTerritory'', in which the basic plot is ''Film/DieHard [[DieHardOnAnX on a Train]]'', the BigBad is able to enter the password for two separate systems at the same time with one hand on each keyboard.

** This was originally an attempt to stop this trope, as the typewriters of the time tended to jam at a particular high wpm.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Stallman Richard Stallman]], UsefulNotes/{{UNIX}} hacker and free software activist. MIT's hacker lab, where he felt at home, was disappearing. Most of the hackers had left for or had been hired by two competing companies--LMI and Symbolics. Stallman took exception to the last one because they'd made a friend of his quit. So he did the only thing he could to fight it--code. For two years, from 1982 to the end of 1983, Stallman worked by himself to clone the output of the Symbolics programmers, with the aim of preventing them from gaining a monopoly on the lab's computers with their proprietary software. If that doesn't sound impressive, think of it this way: he did the programming of ten or so hackers, matching them feature for feature, only stopping to sleep. That's ''two years'' of RapidFireTyping.

* Early in the run of ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' the title character's father, an expy of {{Superman}} who's civilian identity is a novelist, notes that he has deadline for a book coming up so he'll have to buy several keyboards to burn through over the weekend.

* In ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' Goku does this using two hands that cross over each other when trying to power an escape pod. Justified, since Goku doesn't know jack about technology and is just randomly mashing buttons as fast as he can in a panicked hope he'll activate the escape pod. [[spoiler:He fails]].

* In ''GundamSEED'', Coordinators can do this with enough training. Kira Yamato actually reprograms the Strike Gundam's OS through a ONE-HANDED variant of this trope. Some fans refer to this as "Coordinator Typing", even.
