--->'''Computer''': It looks like you're just pressing the same buttons over and over.
--->'''Kaiba''': That's because I learned how to [[HollywoodHacking hack]] by watching old episodes of ''Franchise/StarTrek''!

* In ''Film/GoldenEye'', the BigBad orders Boris Grishenko, the hacker, to perform some necessary computer work and instructs a soldier to kill him if he moves. Boris starts typing fast, then the soldier motions with his gun. Boris types faster.
** There was an especially grievous example earlier, when Boris performs rapid fire typing with only one hand, while spinning a (grenade) pen in the other. While doing so, he never stops to correct any mistakes -- because he is that good.
** Boris' one-handed typing is ridiculous, of course: No matter how fast one is, typing with one hand is not even close to half the speed of two - the keyboard is made for two hands.

* Chisame is one of the ''MahouSenseiNegima'' world's greatest hackers, to the point that she can keep up with a highly advanced robot at a human level. Her finger taps are sometimes [[RuleOfCool played up for drama]].

* ''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]]''.

* "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.
