* Music/{{Korn}}'s logo is spelled with a backwards R. This causes [[InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike unintentional hilarity]] for Kazakh people, who also use Cyrillic alphabet, since "коян" (koyan, the "Н" is read like "N") in Kazakh means "hare" or "rabbit".

* 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.

This is because Cyrillic is based on medieval Greek completed with Glagolitic (sometimes inspired by Hebrew -- ц, ш) letters, but due to reforms by Peter the Great it has the same basic design principles as the Latin alphabet (stroke thickness and placement, etc.). This has resulted in an alphabet with letters that range from deceptively familiar to the strikingly different. The Latin alphabet itself is based -- via the Etruscan[=/=]Old Italic one -- on the archaic (pre-classical) Greek one, and Hebrew and Greek scripts are based on Phoenician script, so they are all related. Where the (English form of the) Latin alphabet has twenty-six letters, the (Russian form of the) Cyrillic alphabet has ''thirty-three''.

* The {{Wii}} allows Greek letters when naming a {{Mii}}. Many players use the Greek letters for this trope. For example, a Mii going online for ''VideoGame/MarioKartWii'' might be named "ρlαγεr" (rlager) rather than "player". The Nintendo3DS and the WiiU allow both Greek and Cyrillic letters, though fewer players seem to be using them.

* Promotional materials for ''Series/TheAmericans'' often feature the show's title written in all caps with a backwards R. Notably averted within the show's opening titles, however, where the cast's names are accurately transliterated into Cyrillic.
