* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' ExpandedUniverse's [[SoBadItsGood notorious]] "Jedi Prince" cycle (''Literature/TheGloveOfDarthVader'' et al) makes extensive use of these, never describing a sound when something like "GRONG!" would suffice. This causes at least one {{Narm}} moment when the BigBad [[YouHaveFailedMe shoots one of his inner circle]], "ZAP!" detracting somewhat from the intended drama of the scene.

* The ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' books are fond of TSEEEEWWW! for Yeerk [[FrickinLaserBeams Dracon beams]].
** Not to mention the FWAPP! of an Andalite tail-blade strike.

* Don't forget the movie ''Sssssss''. Yes, that's the title. Obviously, it's about snakes.

The WrittenRoar is one specific kind of WrittenSoundEffect. Contrast the UnsoundEffect, which is a written effect that is ''not'' onomatopoeia. A particularly common form of EditorialSynaesthesia. Can be used for SoundEffectBleep with SpeechbubblesInterruption. See also SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud.

* Strange as it seems, ''WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndRoadRunner'' had such an instance. In "War and Pieces," the grenade tossed by the coyote hit the arm of a cactus and was returned straight to him. The explosion was punctuated by a clear "POW."

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' features Ajax going off to college as part of a plot by [[spoiler: King Chicken]]. While visiting him at school, Duckman and his family are treated to Ajax giving a lecture on onomatopoeia. This becomes a BrickJoke later when Duckman and [[spoiler: King Chicken]] fight. The battle spills over to the lecture hall, and they smash through a series of signs with various onomatopoeia written on them while the appropriate sound effect plays for each one.

* ''EliteBeatAgents'' and ''OsuTatakaeOuendan'' use this a lot, mainly because the stories are told using manga panels. Special mention goes to the ending of EliteBeatAgents, where combined music and goodwill of the world blow up the alien mother ship with a "KA-LAPOWABOOOM!"

* Used in-universe in the animated short ''WesternAnimation/Shhhhhh'', in the hotel lodge where they take quietness so seriously that all objects display a sign with a written sound effect: The desk bell extends a "Ding" sign, the clock displays "Tick, Tock" and the bed lamp's switch shows "Click".
