* In ''StarControl 2'', each race's speech is subtitled in a different font. These vaguely match their personalities, so the Ur-Quan have large, bold text while the Utwig have thin, wobbly, depressed-looking text.

* Of ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'', TheVision traditionally spoke with a square bubble to indicate a cold, robotic voice, and in the late [[TheNineties 90s]], [[TheMightyThor Thor]] was given a distinctive font inspired by [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe Olde English]] to match his Shakespearean/Biblical patois. More recently, Comicbook/IronMan has been given rectangular, red outlined bubbles to indicate that his voice is coming through speakers in the armor.

* Null of {{Halcyon}} seems to 'speak' through black narration boxes with white text, which doesn't stop anyone from hearing him. The font also changes when characters are speaking in a foreign language, a la Literature/{{Discworld}}.

* The Preservers in ''ElfQuest'' originally spoke with wavy lettering, and when the series collected for the first color edition each preserver spoke with its own color of bubble. This was dropped in the Marvel reprint which was completely re-lettered, and the new lettering carried over into some collected editions. The DC Collector's Edition and [[http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/OQ/OQ10/DisplayOQ10.html?page=7 Online Edition]] of the Original Series use new computer lettering, restoring the wavy Preserver style and colored bubbles.
** ''ElfQuest'' also used to represent telepathy (sending) by [[http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/SABM/SABM01/DisplaySABM01.html?page=21 parallelogram-shaped speech bubbles with sawtooth edges]]. This apparently just became too much hard work, and was eventually replaced by [[http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/KOBW/KOBW01/DisplayKOBW01.html?page=12 bubbles comprising two concentric ovals]], although as you've seen from the above examples some of the original versions survive in the online edition..

* In Creator/DonRosa's early ''ComicStrip/ThePertwillabyPapers'' series, nearly every character had their own specific font and speech bubble design, reflecting their personalities. The tradition carried over to his ScroogeMcDuck stories in part later on.
