** Some senders of Strong Bad Emails misspell Strong Bad's name as Strongbad, which he often mocks and corrects.
--->'''Strong Bad''': ''(reading "Hey Strongbad" in an email)'' Hey two words. Two different words. That are not one word. That are "Strong" and "Bad".
** ''Peasant's Quest'' also does this - if you type "make friends with Kerrek", the game responds "Look, it didn't work for Strongbad and it's not gonna work for you either."

* ''Franchise/UltraSeries''. While the Ultramen generally have an established way of spelling their English names, their many {{kaiju}} and alien foes constantly have inconsistencies depending on how their names are translated. Monster names can often vary wildly between fans, and while plenty of monsters have established ways of spelling their names, many kaiju names are designated based on their Japanese pronunciation, any GratuitousEnglish used in the shows, and a bit of guesswork. A lot of this can be attributed to the ambiguity of kana in names and the difficulty in finding official English designations given by Tsuburaya Productions.

*** ''Grand Order'' also brought in a particularly amusing example in the form of Chaldea's special observation system. Most people thought it was called "SHIVA", after the three-eyed, supreme Hindu god. That is, until the Salem chapter, where it malfunctions and summons its legendary, clairvoyant namesake... the Queen of Sheba. Hilarity, and a number of wiki edits, ensued.

* In ''Film/ForeignCorrespondent'', the DeadpanSnarker Brit reporter has the utterly ridiculous last name of "ffolliot". Yes, two lower-case [=Fs=]. This is a rare affectation among certain upper-class British families, other examples including ffrench and fforbes. The most plausible explanation is that for a period in early modern written English, there was no proper upper-case F, and so the lower-case f was written twice in situations such as names where it had to be clear that the capital was intended. Some people then kept the ff even after distinct upper and lower-case versions of F existed, either out of tradition or out of legal paranoia that if their name wasn't exactly as written in old legal documents they might somehow lose property or privileges.

** It's an ongoing joke that everyone misspells Grif's name.\\
--->'''Church:''' He's Grif. Which is spelled with two Fs.\\
'''Grif:''' Goddammit! Okay, now that's ''another'' thing!\\
'''Church:''' Caboose was very specific about that second F.
** It actually applies a lot to ''[=RvB=]'''s producer. Similar to the Fall Out Boy example in the Music folder, Creator/RoosterTeeth's name gets frequently misspelled as one word ("Roosterteeth") or as a [=CamelCase=] word ("[=RoosterTeeth=]").
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'': Doreauxgard. The only source for the spelling of his name is an XML file.
* In WebVideo/MovieRehab, the main character's name is not spelled Sag. The name is spelled [=SaG=], [[CaptainObvious just with a big G at the end]].
* ''WebAnimation/AlbiAndAzul''. Is it spelled "Abbi" or "Albi"? The video titles spell it "Abbi", but the series intro spells it "Albi".
