* Played for laughs in an episode of ''[[BabylonFive Babylon 5]]''. A part of a court case is shown where a human is suing an alien because the alien's ancestor [[AlienAbduction abducted]] his ancestor. The judge asks the defendant how he pleads. The alien responds by holding up a card with a symbol that does not exist in any human language. The judge curses his luck, and requests an interpreter.

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

* For alien letters, ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' used English characters written forward then overlaid with the same English word written backwards and upside-down. Enough to look like an exotically unfamiliar font at a glance until you take a closer look.

* The Disney film ''Atlantis'' introduces us to the protagonist by showing him giving a presentation demonstrating that expeditions to find the book that says where Atlantis is failed because the only piece of evidence was mistranslated, and corrects the substitution cypher from "Coast of I'''r'''eland" to "Coast of I'''c'''eland."

* Used a lot by Marvel characters like Loki, in a font that looks like Elder Futhark, for casting spells. In YoungAvengers, when he uses something that would translate to "rjerdwrbr" in Real Life Runes, he's actually saying "elsewhere," to take him, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin elsewhere.]] [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mc5fbwXhTp1qb3w08.png Here's]] the key.

* 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.

* 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.
