* [[http://www.theblackcube.fr/myha.html This game]] is a rather weird example, as while its title is officially ''Myha'', its logo is written as '''Лyнa''' (which is, in fact, the Russian word for "Moon", pronounced as "Woona"). The game's plot, appropriately, is set on the moon of an Earth-like planet.

* One Cold War-themed episode of ''Series/TheTimeTunnel'' includes several signs in fake Cyrillic. Most are a nonsensical mix of Latin and Cyrillic letters, including a backwards У, an upside-down Q, and even a backwards 4. These are for flavor; the one sign meant to be comprehended reads ''РЯОᒐEꓘꓕ А-13'', with a flat-topped A probably meant to suggest a Д.

* [[http://cdn.redalertpolitics.com/files/2015/07/billboard-2.jpg A Republican billboard]] effectively warns voters against the 2016 Democratic frontrunners in terms of The RedScare with the slogan "[[Film/DumbAndDumber Left and Lefter]]" -- turning the "R" in "lefter" around.

* The ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "Red October Sky" contains an odd inversion: close-ups of a propaganda poster containing the GratuitousRussian phrase ''ВЕАИКИХ РАБОТ'' (roughly, "the great work") render it in lookalike Latin letters: ''BEANKNX PAGOT''. Wider shots of the same poster show the phrase in Cyrillic letters.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TheBannerSaga'' a mix of fake and real runes on the map to make it look Norse. The real runes are often misused, however, such as Ur (ᚢ) being used as an N and [[RandomlyReversedLetters Lögr (ᛚ) being reversed]]. This makes the text more readable without knowledge of Germanic runes than with it.

* The film about the Dyatlov Pass Incident has a fairly incomprehensible name.
* 'Siberian Education' uses it.

Added DiffLines:

* As the film is set in Russia, this trope is used in the end credits of ''Film/DevilsPass''. One example is presenting the director credit as "Diяected by Reииy Harliи".

* There is a beauty parlour on Wandsworth Road, London, which has rendered part of its sign in pseudo-Greek as "Ναιλσ" (Nails). However, whoever did this clearly doesn't know about Greek; even if this is a Greek word, it should in any case be "Ναιλς".

** In Finnish translation of Asterix, the Viking speech uses Å, Æ, and Ø according to the letters' phonetic values instead merely replacing A and O. The corresponding Finnish letters would be O, Ä and Ö. Most Finns know perfectly well which phonems the Danish and Norwegian letters Å, Æ and Ø do represent and how to pronounce them.
