* Pops up every so often in the ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'' games. If a puzzle requires you to manipulate a set of numbered tokens which can be freely rotated, it's probably a good idea to assume this trope is in play.

If a puzzle requires you to manipulate a set of numbered tokens which can be freely rotated, it's probably a good idea to assume this trope is in play. Alongside 6 becoming 9 and vice versa, you can often find plus signs rotating 45 degrees to become times signs, or minus signs rotating 90 degrees to become 1s.

* Ever hear about the blonde hired as a proofreader at the M&M factory? She was fired for tossing out all the 3's E's and W's.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' episode "Born to Be Wild", 'W' is 'M'. [=SpongeBob=] rips the letter 'W' from the shirt of a biker belonging to [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels a scary gang, the Wild Ones]]. The biker actually belongs to a much tamer group, the ''Mild'' Ones. The 'W' and 'M' were allegedly mixed up in "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV" as well; when [=SpongeBob=] shrinks people and things with Mermaid Man's belt, Patrick tells him he has it set to M for "mini" instead of W for "[[PerfectlyCromulentWord wumbo]]." This doesn't seem to do anything, but [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike Mermaid Man's later comment indicates there really is a "wumbo" setting.]]

* There is also another example of 'W' is 'M' in ''[[Franchise/ScoobyDoo The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries]]'' episode "A Nutcracker Scoob". Daphne finds a lapel pin on the floor with the initials W.N. on it, which everyone believes stands for Winslow Nickelby. In the end, it turns out that they were holding the lapel pin upside-down so the correct initials were N.M. for Nanette Musette.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': The official answer to "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsWhoShotMrBurns Who Shot Mr. Burns?]]" involves a clue where Burns left when he fell on the town sundial, pointing to W and S which implicates [[spoiler:Waylon Smithers]] - except from his angle, he was pointing to M and S for [[spoiler:Maggie Simpson]], the true culprit.

Notably, they actually ''did'' consider this before, since (despite having no motive) it could still have implicated [[spoiler:Moe Szyslak]] as a RedHerring.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', 625 finds an inactive experiment, which is labeled with its number like all the others. Gantu looks up its number (611), discovering that it is an "unstoppable superweapon", and sends it to Hamsterveil, reporting that ''he'' found it. 625, angered by Gantu taking credit for his discovery, warns him of [[LaserGuidedKarma karma]] coming back to bite him, and it does: the experiment was actually 119, which was a much less useful experiment Hamsterveil did not actually want to deal with.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'', Ickis is waiting in line with the other monsters to get Snorch'd and is given the number 61, much to his relief since it takes more time. The monster in front of him then reminds him that he has the sign upside down and flips it, showing it as 19 instead.
