* Professional ''Franchise/StarCraft'' players work at incredible levels of "action per minute", each action being an order to a unit, a macro put into action, [[ConstructAdditionalPylons additional pylons constructed]], or similar. The average home player will do about 30 APM. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbpCLqryN-Q Championship players will do at least 200-300 APM]]. The all-time record hovers around ''800'', (held by world-class player Park Sung-Joon).

* Something similar is done in ''Soul Plane'', except that the (elderly) airline clerk isn't ''actually'' doing anything--she's playing video games!

* Done in the film version of ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies'' by a con couple ready to scatter the Clampett's money to so many bank accounts when their attempt to get into the family through marriage fails. The guy sits down what looks like a heavy-duty suitcase with a laptop inside and just goes to town on it. A well-placed shotgun blast prevents it from happening.

* ''{{Exalted}}'': This is what happens if you use Whirling Brush Method in conjunction with a {{Magitek}} typewriter/keyboard.

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': when encountering Hollow Bastion's supercomputer, Sora tries to search for information on Kairi. Noticing how Leon seemed to be ''waggling his fingers above an unresponsive, flat ''representation'' of a keyboard'', Sora proceeded to bang the keyboard as hard as he can (and then [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]] jumped on Donald's head, and Donald fell on the computer). The MCP from ''{{Tron}}'' got severely pissed off and converted the gang into data entities inside the computer, kicking off the cast's new adventure.

* Usually averted in ''{{lonelygirl15}}'', but Taylor's [[HollywoodHacking hacking]] seems to work this way.

* ''WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic'': Parodied in the ''Film/FoodFight'' review. When the Critic re-writes Malcolm and Tamara as [[TVGenius stereotypical geniuses]], Tamara demonstrates her intelligence by hammering her computer's keyboard with several dramatic flourishes, then ([[LampshadeHanging just to drive the silliness home]]), ''[[RuleOfFunny strums her fingers and knuckles over the keys]]''.

* Hollywood typing isn't for Hollywood anymore: in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid 4'' cutscenes, despite them being movie quality CGI, and ''despite having been made by computer people'', all typing is of the clackity-clack-clack type. One particular computer has three different keyboards for added virtuoso. Still no spacebar in sight.

* Nanoha has to do this to just scroll down a text file in the [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS third season]] of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. BridgeBunnies do this all the time, of course, especially when agitated...

* In ''TheGuild'', Zaboo does this on "Valkyrie"'s keyboard, far too fast to really do anything useful.

Added DiffLines:

* Clerks at airport check-in terminals still tend to use mostly keyboard-based software, and often have a lot of data to enter for each passenger's profile in a relatively short period of time. What exactly they are typing so much of and so fast has nevertheless long remained a common "did you ever wonder..." type mystery of daily life, and a common source of jokes.

* Used in one of the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' books with Dr. Catherine Halsey. Apparently 500 years in the future, laptops will not have silent keyboards. Also they will sound like machine gun fire.
