Some very creative things can be done with UsefulNotes/{{fonts}}, sizes, [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience colors]], shadows or glow, placement, spatial orientations, and curvatures to make a WrittenSoundEffect more evocative and fit it with the art.

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. Sometimes combines with a HitFlash.

* In a classic ''[[ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck Uncle Scrooge]]'' tale by Creator/CarlBarks, Gyro Gearloose invented an "implosion bomb" that sucked up material in a certain radius and compacted it into a neat pile. Intended for litter collection, the WrittenSoundEffect was "MOOB" -- explicitly stated to be "BOOM" backwards.

* ''Series/BigBadBeetleborgs'', oh so much. It's because it's a parody of cheesy superhero comics.

Added DiffLines:

* The same double for Steve Gallacci, the creator of ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', ''ComicBook/DogHouse'', ''WebComic/AloneTogether'', etc, as he avoids using them as much as he can in his works.

* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', all of the weapons sold by [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Nopon]] Commerce Guild are named after the sound they make or is associated with them: this means that their sniper rifles are called "thwippers", dual guns are "bangbangs", gattling guns are "ratatattas", shields are "thudclangs", knives are "pokepokes" and psycho launchers are "fwooshers".

to:

* ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'' makes a RunningGag of [[FootnoteFever footnotes]] explaining what the proper sound effect ''is'', [[LampshadeHanging why they couldn't use it]], and going with the UnsoundEffect version instead. Ex: "The correct sound of a wombat being hit in the shoulder with a crossbow bolt is a squishy sound followed by 'thud', but we found that lacked a certain pithiness."

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicStrip/ThePerryBibleFellowship'' parodies this with Slur, a ComicBook/{{Luke Cage|Hero For Hire}} parody who creates Unsound Effects that sound like ethnic slurs based on who he's he fights (punching a Mafia goon creates "WOP!", stabbing a Mexican stereotype creates "SPIK!"). When the [[Comicbook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]] parody tells him that his fighting style is "problematic", Slur proceeds to break his back Bane-style, creating the Unsound Effect "CCRRCKKKRRR!"
