* 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.

--->'''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]].
