* When Nintendo created Waluigi, they used the same trick when they created Wario, and flip the first letter of the original character's name for his cap. This means that Waliugi wears "Γ" (gamma) on his cap.

* The fourth game in the ''{{Deception}}'' series, ''{{Trapt}}'', spells the title on the cover art as ''TЯAPT'' purely for cosmetic reasons, to achieve a mirrored look that the P partially fudges.

* ''[[http://www.theblackcube.fr/myha.html Myha]]'' is a rather weird example; its logo is written as '''Лyнa''' (which is, in fact, the Russian word for "Moon", pronounced as "Woona" -- which refers to the game's setting), but its official title is spelled ''Myha'', which is what the Russian characters would look like when interpreted as Latin alphabet.

* [[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.

* Franchise/{{Stargate}} uses the Scandinavian letter Å instead of A. Gåte is Norwegian for riddle.

to:

* Franchise/{{Stargate}} uses the Scandinavian letter Å instead of A. Gåte is Norwegian for riddle. The reason for that is that, within the show, Earth's point of origin (the seventh symbol entered on the gate from Earth when dialing) looks like "Å" without the crossbar (it's supposed to represent a pyramid with the sun right above). It's also similar to the point of origin symbol for Abydos in the [[Film/{{Stargate}} original film]] (but with three circles) before the show changed how the dialing worked.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
