It's worth noting that {{manga}} has different conventions regarding onomatopoeia. Manga has much more than can be done with an Unsound Effect. Japanese writers will use sound effects to denote sounds, like heartbeats or door slams, but also to represent more abstract events like "smiling" ("niko niko"), "sudden realization" ("ha"), "the sound of silence" ("shiiiiiiin"), "the sound of staring" ("jiiiiiiiiii") or even "the sound of blushing" ("kaaaaa"). These are known as phenomimes when they describe external phenomena and psychomimes when they describe psychological states (both can be referred to in Japanese as ''gitaigo'', lit. "mimetic words", since they mimetize such cases). Some {{anime}}, generally the more surreal sort, turn these into actual sound effects, even if said sound effects are just the character saying the sound effect (like, for example, the character will actually say "jiiiiiiii" when staring at somebody).

* ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' uses this regularly. Often they are based on ''Franchise/{{Pokémon}} moves since most of the characters are Pokémon, but there's also *CUTS VINES*, *CRASH TO GRASS*, *TELEPORTS IN*, and *MAKES GUN DO A 180*, among others. Lampshaded in the Audiobooks when Dethchemist describes a character as using "TELEPORTS IN."

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' comics have had a variety of onomatopoeia for the TARDIS, of which the most famous is ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'''s "VWORP! VWORP!" At least one of the comedy strips, however, used Terrence Dicks's stock description "a strange wheezing groaning sound" as a sound effect.
