* ''{{Ultima}}'' had a bunch of such scripts; even ThatOtherWiki has an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_scripts_in_Ultima_series article]] on them.

* While not examples of extraterrestrial alphabets, there are several ''{{Redwall}}'' books in which the heroes must decode some ancient writings that are the same as English, only the letters look just different enough to make them unrecognizable.

* {{Marvel}} also does that with the Skrull language when it's left untranslated. Look for "He loves you" in Secret Invasion.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' games have an "ancient script" represented by a flowing font with unrecognizable letters. It can be translated though, and the primary speakers of it (Leanne and Volug) actually say quite a few amusing things, mostly about the language barrier, when translated.
--> '''Leanne (in a support conversation, translated):''' What did you say? Oh, dear, I guess Iíll just smile and nod again.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', [[{{VideoGame/Tekken}} Ogre]]'s winquotes are written this way to represent his alien language; which is slightly odd, since the same language is subtitled in English (or whatever the player's chosen language is) during certain cutscenes.

* Averted: James Gurney's {{Dinotopia}} picture books has a CypherLanguage, not Wingdinglish, despite modern English being only several centuries old compared to the dino civilization of millions of years. AcceptableBreakFromReality considering it was designed for children and their parents.

* Characters that speak "borginian" in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' do so by using a wingdings font. Or at least a font that looks like a lot of symbols put together.

* In [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Tomorrowland]], the photo kiosk and nearby restrooms at the exit of Space Mountain have signs in English and an "alien language," but if you compare the two, the latter is obviously just a substitution cipher for the former. Similarly, all signs near "Stitch's Great Escape" are written like this.
