* In the Enies Lobby arc of ''Manga/OnePiece'', Usopp finds himself face to face with a rooster as he's trying desperately to sneak up to an enemy and snatch the key he needs. Usopp is worrying himself silly that the rooster will crow and awaken his opponent, only for it to ''tweet''. This doesn't wake anybody, but Usopp yelling out in surprise at the wrong sound does.

* [[Creator/DrSeuss Gerald McBoing-Boing.]] Well, when he started talking, you know what he said? He didn't talk words, he went "Boing! Boing!" instead.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'':
** In a gag, the doorbell only goes "Ding--". When Garfield opens the door, there's a technician from Ed's Dong Repair.
** In another, Garfield kicks Odie off the table with a "BLAGOONGA!" sound. He remarks on the unusual noise, then goes and tells Jon that "Odie needs tuning".
** And in a third, he gets hit with a shoe that goes "SPLUT!" when it hits him. He looks off-panel and says "Shoes don't go 'splut'!", after which a [[PieInTheFace pie hits him in the face]] with a SPLUT! sound effect.
** Another strip had Jon pouring milk into cereal telling Garfield that it makes sounds when milk is added. The cereal makes the sound of a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_horn#Klaxon Klaxon]].
--->'''Cereal:''' AWOOGA!\\

'''Garfield:''' I hope it tastes better than it sounds.
** Hell, an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' once used this as its plot!
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'':
** "Scientific progress goes 'boink'?"
** Similarly, apparently the sound effect of walking around in galoshes is "galosh galosh galosh".

* One Russ Abbot sketch opened with a sound-effects man checking that he had all the effects necessary for a radio drama about an escape from a World War 2 prison camp. Unfortunately for him, when the recording started it was for a Regency romance, and the rest of the sketch covered his increasingly desperate attempts to match the sounds he had to the action.
* A ''[[Series/{{Mash}} M*A*S*H]]'' episode has Hawkeye mock-announcing a phony baseball broadcast for Frank Burns' "benefit", with B.J., Radar, and Klinger providing sound effects. At one point Hawkeye says, "…and it's in there for a strike!" and an unthinking B.J. taps the wooden bat he's holding. After glaring at him, Hawkeye continues: "…wait a minute, he got a part of it…"

* In the segment "Mr. Fix-It Fixes It" from ''{{Richard Scarry}}'s Best Silly Stories and Songs Video Ever!'', Mr. Fix-It has to fix Freddy's tricycle horn, Fireman Ralph's siren, Grandma Bear's cuckoo clock, and Lily Bunny's doll, by 3 o' clock. All of the items aren't making their proper sounds anymore (e.g. Freddy's horn doesn't honk) which is why they need them fixed. Once Mr. Fix-It repairs the items, the characters then go to use the items. However, they find that Mr. Fix-It got the sound effects all mixed up. They then proceed to sing a song about what if all sound effects got mixed up.

* In LaurenceOlivier's film of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/HenryV'' (of all things!), during the Elizabethan-style production with which it opens, the Archbishop of Canterbury asks the Bishop of Ely, "Is it four o'clock?" A bell duly rings -- three times; we see Shakespeare himself rushing backstage, the bell rings once more, and Ely replies, "It is."

* A Mafia henchman in an ''ComicBook/AchilleTalon'' comic has a strange illness that causes every sound he makes to be rendered as a completely unrelated onomatopoeia (like whacking someone on the head with a huge "gulp" sound, for instance), and his boss regularly complains about it (this is a comic where MediumAwareness is a common occurrence for its characters). The henchman is overjoyed at the end of the story to discover that he's cured when the manacles he's handcuffed with make a correct "click" sound.

Contrast WackySoundEffect for "wrong" sound effects not noticed by the characters and SpecialEffectFailure, which happens when the sound effect goes unintentionally wrong, regardless of the amusement factor of said error. Also contrast UnsoundEffect, which uses something that isn't really a sound at all. BrokenEcho is a related trope, where it's a voice that's wrong instead of a sound effect.
