* ball/bawl: If you use "ball" as a verb, you're probably writing porn. (In fairness, it can also mean "to make into a ball," as in "to ball one's fists.")
* ballot/ballet: They're not pronounced the same at all, but your spelling checker doesn't know that.

to:

* ball/bawl: ball is often a noun like a baseball or basketball, while bawl is a verb meaning 'to cry noisily'. "I bawled my eyes out when they hit me with that ball of snow."

** And neither of them requires a cube shape; concentrated bouillon can be compressed into cubes or stored in soft form in jars, while gold or silver bullion can be in rectangular ingots or coin-shaped "rounds." So no, neither "bullion cubes" nor "bouillon cubes" is reduntant.

* Even ''Series/WheelOfFortune'', a show where spelling should be of the utmost importance by the staff, had a few misspelled puzzles. Among them: one in 1988 that had Charley Pride's name misspelled CHARLIE; "foghorn" inexplicably spelled as FOG HORN in a 1992 BonusRound; PIECE OF MIND in a 2003 bonus round (should be "a piece of your mind" or "peace of mind"); COFFEE-TABLE BOOK (should be "coffee table" as that is two separate words and not a hyphenated one) and WAIT A WHILE (should be "wait awhile").
* ''Series/MatchGame'' had a Audience Match that began with "There's a _____". The best answer was "fly in my suop", which Brett Somers immediately pointed out.

* Fans of Homestuck tend to get this wrong as [[spoiler:Nepeta, Roxy and Rufioh]] are the mythological Rogues of Heart, Void and Breath respectively.

[[caption-width-right:223:...or however you pronounce it]]
* French "Rouge[= =]Rebelle" nail varnish sold in the US as "Rogue Red". You can hardly blame those [[EagleLand Merkins]] who think "Rebelle" is French for "Red". [[labelnote:It's not]]"Rebelle" means rebel, or rogue, and "Rouge" means red. Also, in French the adjective usually comes after the noun. So "Rouge[= =]Rebelle" translates as "Rebellious Red".[[/labelnote]]

* Parodied in ''AH.com Wars'', a ''Franchise/StarWars'' parody spinoff of ''Script/AHDotComTheSeries'', in which the top Rebel fighter pilots are indeed called Rouge Squadron, and all incongruously wear makeup.
* "Rouge boomers" are epidemic in ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' {{fan fic}}tion. They're supposed to rampage, not apply makeup.
* The ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' ''Going Rogue'' expansion included an exploration badge titled "Going Rouge", located by the Praetorian tailor and talking about her use of cosmetics.
* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' fanfiction often focuses on the mysterious order known as the Rouge Archers.
* The computer game ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' had so many fan misspellings of their sneaky class that they eventually began in-game references to a character called The Moglin Rouge. Considering [[HurricaneOfPuns the fun its creators have with mind-scarringly bad jokes]], this was kind of inevitable.
** The MMORPG version, ''VideoGame/AdventurequestWorlds'', added a "Rouge Armor" during their Valentine's Day special event. The extremely pink item description reads "'Rouge' Definition: any of various red cosmetics for coloring the cheeks or lips."
* This is something of a BerserkButton for many posters on the official ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' forums.
* Spoofed in ''Webcomic/DungeonsOfSunnydale'' when in the hero is given the class "Rouge" instead of "Rogue". This gives him special abilities when interacting with anything that is the color red.
* In ''Epic Cards Battle'', there is the Dual Daggers Rouge.
* Likewise, fans of ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' have so frequently misspelled Rogue's name as "[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Rouge]]" that it's {{lampshade|Hanging}}d on the webcomic's [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/cast.html cast page]].
* A certain faction in ''VideoGame/{{Freelancer}}'' is entitled the Liberty Rogues. Naturally, some ''Freelancer'' forums can't help but discuss the "Liberty Rouges".
* ''VideoGame/GoatSimulator'', being the embodiment of StylisticSuck, has a "Rouge" class. It makes a similar joke to ''Ragnarok Online'', calling the class "the stealthiest makeup artist in the world".
* The old CCG ''Guardians'' featured a "rouge specter". It was not red.
* The "Rogue" deck in [[http://community.livejournal.com/anime_lj_tcg anime_lj_tcg]], for Haseo from ''[[Franchise/DotHack .hack//Roots]]'' and ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'', is also misspelled as "Rouge". The admin in charge of making cards has said that it's too much work to redo a deck, so everyone has basically accepted it.

* Note: The ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khmer_Rouge Khmer Rouge]]'' rebels actually are spelled like that. [[CaptainObvious It means "Red Khmer".]]
* Haschel from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'' is a master of the Rouge School of Martial Arts (not a mistake, despite the game's dodgy translation; he comes from the village of Rouge). Naturally, it gets written as the Rogue School on occasion.
* In the UsefulNotes/MobilePhoneGame ''Magic Evolution'', one can encounter a "Rougue" enemy.
* In any MMORPG that calls their [[AnAdventurerIsYou stealthy close-combat class]] "rogues", expect to see a lot of people looking for a "rouge" for their group.
** ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' seems to be taking this a step further with their new advanced [[http://ro.doddlercon.com/wiki/index.php?title=Shadow_Chaser Rogue]] class. It's best described as a combat makeup artist.
* Watch out when discussing that turn-of-the-century French nightclub, which was called "The Red Windmill" because it was, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a red windmill]] (a ''Film/MoulinRouge''). A moulin ''rogue'' is something Literature/DonQuixote would have dealt with.
* One dealership's ad for a Nissan Rogue described it as a Nissan "Rouge".
* This also happens to be a "[[http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/gamespyarchive/index.php?date=2004-02-12 touchy subject]]" for the thieves guild in ''ComicStrip/{{Nodwick}}''. See also BerserkButton.
* In ''Webcomic/TheNoob'', Clichequest features guild facilities for [[http://www.clichequest.com/index.php?pos=19 Rogues (and Rouges)]].
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/spelling-gone-rogue/8515 This story]] from ''Website/NotAlwaysRight''.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' prequel ''On the Origin of [=PCs=]'', Haley Starshine's CV (actually, her character sheet) has her class as "rouge", which DeadpanSnarker Roy points out. She's no cosmetic product, after all.
** Later on, there's the aptly-named comic [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0711.html The Rouge's Guild]].



* In ''Queen of Butts'' by Lunareth (a Western {{Hentai}} Manga), a thief caught snooping in the queen's palace is forced to become a harem slave girl and is renamed "Rouge" by the harem trainer (as part of a ThemeNaming of giving names based on French colors). She even comments on the pun.
* Similarly, there was a character from late in the ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' manga named "Rouge"; it was perhaps both karma and inevitable that some FanFic writers would start calling her "Rogue".
* The ''Seiken Densetsu 3'' board on Website/{{GameFAQs}} was subject to this a lot a while ago. The character class of Rogue is too often misspelled as Rouge. Eventually it became a running gag to completely ignore the misspelling and assume that anyone asking about the Rouge job was referring to the super secret, all-powerful (and non-existent) job of another character completely.
* In ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', Vyse and company are part of a "good" faction of Skyrates called the Blue Rogues. Or Blue Rouges. Which you might say makes them The Purples.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=060207 teaches the difference.]] Because [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle knowing is half the battle]].
* In an interesting twist, the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' universe has an enemy character who actually ''is'' named Rouge. And yep, people [[http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22rogue+the+bat%22&btnG=Google+Search have misspelled it as Rogue]]. You just can't win...
** Doesn't help that she is a government spy, a.k.a. rogue. Who wears some crazy facial makeup, a.k.a. rouge.
*** And then in ''SonicRiders'' there's the anti-hero trio called the Babylon Rogues. Yep, they get subjected to this as well.
*** But here's something that might help clear things up (or add to the confusion, depending on how you look at it): take a look at [[http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/File:Sonic116.png the cover of issue #116 of the Archie series.]]
** A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7Q0_DgXHG0 commercial for Sonic Heroes Happy Meal toys in Pakistan]] actually ''pronounced'' her name as Rogue. She was also [[YouDontLookLikeYou modeled in such a way that she isn't identifiable as Rouge at all -- she looked more like a "he" and appeared to be a mouse or rat.]] Perhaps the only reason we know for sure that it was supposed to be Rouge is that it showed a picture of the toy, which has a stock image of Rouge on it.
** As a rouge...rogue...damn, rough rule of thumb: The probability that Rouge is erroneously called Rogue (or Rogue Rouge) is directly proportional to the RuleThirtyFour content.
* The back cover of the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' novel ''Blaze of Glory'' refers to a "rouge starship".
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** Even some '''published''' ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' novels refer to "Rouge Squadron". Kinda funny if you consider that [[Comicbook/XWingSeries Rogue]] [[VideoGame/RogueSquadron Squadron]] is partly made up of the survivors of Red Squadron from the first Death Star.
*** This reaches truly epidemic levels whenever a new game in the ''Rogue Squadron'' series comes out, as [[http://ign64.ign.com/articles/065/065688p1.html mocked in this article]].
** ''[[Film/RogueOne Rouge One]]'' became a {{meme|ticMutation}}, with people photoshopping the film's posters to put all of the cast in makeup.
* A new highway sign for southern Oregon's Valley of the Rogue State Park was misspelled, and until the sign was replaced, the park announced itself to visitors going south on I-5 as the "Valley of the Rouge State Park".
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', rogues are cats who don't live in the Clans or with humans. Fans frequently spell the word wrong.
