** Like with The Flash example below, the concept of a memory buffer is lost on writers. In the past, the physical limitations of a typewriter were ignored as well.

** Earlier in the film has a much more egregious example. When first introduced you can actually see the screen and you see him type and hear a ridiculous number of keystrokes over several as only the short phrase 'Send spike' is typed on screen.

Occasionally this can be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] through TruthInTelevision as many computer users can indeed do things quicker by using the keyboard exclusively though shortcuts instead of a mouse, especially if using command line interfaces. This trope though is about {{egregious}} uses of speed typing to control what a computer does.

* ''WebSeries/TheNostalgiaCritic'': Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/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]]''.

**In real life, the effect was achieved by Creator/JimCarrey typing normally, while slooowly lifting the coffee cup in his right, and then the footage was sped up.

* A particularly hilarious example shows up in the WhoopiGoldberg film ''Film/JumpinJackFlash''. Goldberg, who has just been contacted by a spy while putting in some overtime at her work terminal, engages in a friendly chat with the stranger. She rattles off a few seconds of RapidFireTyping and then [[SoundingItOut helpfully narrates]] her response: "Yo."
