* In the fifth case of ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', a piece of evidence contains a note that reads "6-7S 12/2." However, the note was apparently written upside down and it actually reads "2/21 SL-9," tying it to another case altogether.

The address Bubble Bass gave them was house #166, but because [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick were holding the paper upside down, they mistake house #991 for the proper address, much to the chagrin of the house's owner.

* 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.

* ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} in Britain'': Asterix and friends get the address (number IV in a row of identical suburban huts) of the thief who stole their barrel of magic potion. But when they bust down the door, it turns out to be a perfectly ordinary couple living at number IV (the I fell off).

* 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.

* 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.]]
