* The novelization of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' was one of the few ''Franchise/StarWars'' books to actually try to write out Chewbacca's speech (as well as that of R2-D2 and the Ewoks). "Rheeaaahhr!", "Groawwwwr!", and "Rowr ahragh awf ahraroww rowh rohngr grgrff rf rf." were typical lines. [[http://wookieepedia.org/w/Wrouau There's even a Wookieepedia page for the sound "wrouau."]] [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Seriously.]]

* ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' has a incredibly [[{{Narm}} Narmful]] one when Rorschach jumps out of a window: "RRAAAARRL". No punctuation. (MemeticMutation frequently uses this for macros, photoshops, and .gifs)
* Mocked in an issue of ''Comicbook/{{Excalibur}}'' where Lockheed the dragon bites a burglar who yells 'Yeargh' and his companion bemusedly notes that you never really hear people say that, although you see it written down a lot.

** Generation II's Lugia goes "Gyaaas!" and Ho-Oh goes "Shaoooh!"
** Generation III's Kyogre goes "Gyararoooah!" in Heart Gold and "Krrraaawwwrrr!!!" in Alpha Sapphire, and Groudon goes "Grrgggrrrrah!" in Soul Silver and "Gurrrooouuuhhh!!!" in Omega Ruby. Rayquaza
has a menacing cry written as..."Dodogyuuun".by far the most cries, going "Kiyuryursheeah!" in Heart Gold and Soul Silver and "Kiryararararahhh!!!", "Kiryarassshhhaaahhh!", "Kirrrurrrurrr…", "Kiryarararaaahhh!", "Kirrrihrrrihrrrihhhh!!!", "Kirrihrrrihrrriii!!!", and "Kiiiryarrrarrrarrraaaashiiiii!!!" in Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.
** Generation IV's Uxie goes "Kyouuuun!", Mesprit goes "Kyauun.", Azelf goes "Kyuuun…", Dialga goes "Gugyugubah!", Palkia goes "Gagyagyaah!", Heatran goes "Gwogobo gwobobobo!", Regigigas goes "…Zut zutt!", Giratina says "…Bishaan!" in Diamond and Pearl and "Giygogagohgwooh!" in Platinum, Shaymin goes "Kyuu uuhn.", and Arceus goes "Dodogyuuun!" Darkrai's cry, oddly, only consists of ellipses.
