* In another Harry Potter fic, ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/4710065/chapters/10756880 Run that by me again?]]'', Hermione knows that Harry didn't enter himself in the Triwizard Tournament because the handwriting on the note is legible.

Added DiffLines:

* This is a fairly common argument for allowing laptops in class, even in classes where laptops are not required for activities. Of course, not every instructor is in favor, arguing that students could distract themselves with social media, games, and the like instead of paying attention in class.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Buff Frog has extremely poor handwriting, which becomes a plot point when he sends Star a letter warning her of [[BigBad Ludo's]] return, but since she couldn't read it, she was completely unprepared. When confronted about it, he says he never went to school.

* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'': Kenshin. Seeing as he was born in a family of farmers, spent about a year as a slave, was raised by a hermetic swordsman from ages six to thirteen, and then left to join a militia, there probably wasn't much opportunity to work on handwriting.

In fact, being literate is already an achievement for someone of his social class.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. Steven tries having a partially-healed Centipeedle write something, and she produces a bunch of scribbles. Except [[FluentInTheirNativeTongue she was writing in the Gem language]], which Pearl notes is surprisingly legible.

* ''DaveBarry in Cyberspace'' claims that, though people learn to write neatly in "cursive" in childhood, their handwriting degenerates into random marks as they grow older. The typical example provided is a scribbled note allegedly written by President UsefulNotes/HarryTruman on August 3, 1945, intended to be an order of waffles for breakfast but interpreted as, "Let's drop the atomic bomb."

* The infamous note OscarWilde’s lover’s father passed to Wilde at a party.
** The handwriting became very important during Wilde's libel trial against the Marquess of Queensbury (the father). Wilde claimed that the note read "poncing sodomite" and the Marquess claimed it read "posing sodomite" (because as the line does not actually call Wilde gay--only "acting" gay--it is easier to defend in court).
