* ''WebComic/SomethingPositive'' has a bad case of this; ironically this is more noticeable since the comic is drawn to allow ample space from them, and is a good indication to the presence of strawmen. One particularly {{egregious}} [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp07232004.shtml example]] is lampshaded with the following:

* ''ComicBook/{{Warrior}}'':
** The short-lived comic, based on [[ProfessionalWrestling pro wrestler]] The Wrestling/UltimateWarrior, was filled from cover to cover with walls of text, much of it consisting of incomprehensible, made-up jargon. Much of the text centers on Warrior's strange pseudo-philosophy that's quite out there. To see just how crazy and nonsensical it is, almost to the point it is hard to believe it could exist, see WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment's [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/bt/spoonyone/reviews/7238-warrior1 review of it]]. Making it worse was that sometimes it was printed in font colors that were unreadable on the background color. The sheer volume of text and its insane, babbling nature really can't be overstated here. There's a text box for the crazy narrator, a text box for "Warrior"'s crazy inner monologue, and ''then'' thought bubbles for "Warrior"'s crazy thoughts. It amounts to, at ''minimum'', a good 4-5 paragraphs per page...
** In the same tradition (though more tongue-in-cheek, obviously) Chris Sims of the Invincible super-blog does a feature he calls [[http://www.the-isb.com/?cat=201 Warrior Wisdom Fridays]] that feature one of Ultimate Warrior's characteristically incoherent Wall Of Text rants, plus a hilarious AltText haiku summary.

* The opening crawl of ''Film/AloneInTheDark2005''.
* In the documentary ''Film/{{Crumb}}'', Creator/RobertCrumb flips through his brother's old amateur comics to show the brother's mental breakdown. With each page, the drawings become more and more pushed back by larger and larger bubbles crammed with text, until finally the drawings are discarded and Crumb is just flipping through page after page of microscopic text. It's quite creepy.

* Played for laughs in ''Manga/AngelSanctuary'', when Raphael's speech bubble has him tell a long story about how effective his wind powers are in conjunction with Michael's fire powers, including the time this worked out in their favor. Poor Michael is shown practically blue-screening from all this information and [[HotBlooded yells at Raphael to shut up already, burning his surroundings]].

* When play testing the game that would eventually become ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', the developers found out that testers would often reset the game to [[SaveScumming load better items in Nook's shop or just to get better results]]. As this is a life simulation game where events happen in real time, this was seen as detrimental to the experience the game was giving. Learning from the experience of Kaepora Gaebora above, they realized that the one thing players hate is time wasted on scrolling through walls of text that could be better spent on actually playing the game. So they created an [=NPC=] character that reminded you to save your game should you just turn it off without saving, and did so by via Walls of Text and waste the player's time and thus, making resetting much more of a arduous task then in other games. This character would later become a mole named Mr. Resetti.
