** And not even Kana (well, just Katakana) is immune - The Japanese word for America (アメリカ) looks like the Hebrew word for [[InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike Douchebag]] (מניאק) if you squint hard enough.

* Angelic language from ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned.'' Averted when two (or more) angels are speaking to each other, in which case the font simply changes from black to blue. Played straight when they speak to a non-angelic character or themselves, and 9 times out of 10, what they say in those scenarios ''ISN'T'' nice at all. [[spoiler: Demons are also capable of speaking angelic, and the ones that do are especially dangerous.]]

* ACTUAL Wingdings, which is the font this trope is named after. Instead of letters, it uses a variety of random symbols: ranging from hands to faces to normal objects.

* ACTUAL Wingdings, which The TropeNamer, naturally, is the font this trope is named after.[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingdings Wingdings]]. Instead of letters, it uses a variety of random symbols: ranging from hands to faces to normal objects. These were essentially proto-emoji, and indeed every glyph in Wingdings (and the related Webdings) has been given a corresponding proper emoji -- leading to some accusations of SkewedPriorities as things like "[[https://emojipedia.org/man-in-business-suit-levitating/ Man in Suit Levitating]]" are made into emoji before (insert whatever here).

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has some DummiedOut text written entirely in wingdings, such as [[spoiler:Entry 17, the one entry missing from the True Lab]]. These can be attributed to [[spoiler:W. D. Gaster]], who is possibly alluded to in the game itself by an NPC who says to "beware the man who speaks in hands", and by [[spoiler:a blueprint in Sans's workshop]] that's written in "strange symbols", suggesting that the character speaks/writes in wingdings.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', one of your party members introduces himself as "♥♪!?". As he points out, this is [[TheUnpronounceable somewhat difficult for ordinary mortals to pronounce]], so he lets you call him "Geno", after the doll he's possessing.
