* The StylisticSuck skits in the ''Manga/PopTeamEpic'' anime (animated by AC部) have the completely nonsensical title of "ボブネミミッミ"/"Bobunemimimmi", which is translated as "[[WordSaladTitle Bob Epic Team]]" in the English dub.

The series itseld is officially known as ''Poptepipic''[[note]]"Pop Team Epic" is just a byline in Japan[[/note]], which doesn't make much more sense.

* LetsPlay/ScottManley's Youtube name is "szyzyg," a disastrous attempt to spell [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syzygy_(astronomy) "syzygy."]] He decided to leave it that way for the [[RuleOfFunny accidental humor]], and to avoid the hassle of creating a whole new channel just to fix the username.

* Some of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s song titles are nonsensical, but "Crystamanthequins" takes the cake, combining "crystal meth", "chrysanthemum", "mannequin" and "harlequin".

* TheMarsVolta seem somewhat fond of made-up portmanteaus: There's the albums ''Amputechture'' ("amputation" + "technology" + "architecture") and ''Noctourniquet'' ("Nocturnal" + "tourniquet"), as well as the song title "Dyslexicon" ("Dyslexic" + "Lexicon").

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/{{Gosick}}'', essentially a misspelling/stylization of [[GothicHorror "Gothic"]] caused by the lack of a "th" sound in Japanese (Gothic -> Goshikku -> Gosick).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx''. This is especially weird because neither the all-caps word nor the all-caps "word" is an acronym. The lead character's partner calls him "darling" and they pilot a HumongousMecha called "Franxx" [[SpellMyNameWithAnS (or is it Frankxx?)]], because XMakesAnythingCool.
