* Xeriouxly Forxe, the mock-DarkerAndEdgier version of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' has a loose system for it: Generally, any 'S' sound is replaced with an X. The characterx have acknowledged the difficulty of xpeaking thix way.

* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}''. According to WordOfGod, it doesn't stand for anything, it's chosen to make it difficult to pronounce, and of course because it's cool. And yes, it's official spelling is with all lowercase, or possibly all uppercase if that is not usable for some reason. Xkcd is frowned upon.

** Graphics card designers love naming their products this way. ATI/AMD did it around 2005 when they jumped from the 9000 series to the '''X'''800 series, and then did it ''again'' in 2016 when they jumped from the R9 300 series to the R'''X''' 400 series. Nvidia didn't do it in 2016, going for 10 instead of X for the sake of releasing the [=Geforce GTX 1080=] in reference to the Full HD [=1080p=] video standard.

** Mac OS X. All previous Mac OS's were numbered using Arabic numbers.
*** Apple's DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment repeats the ten in the version number, so Snow Leopard is Mac OS X 10.6. Apple [[http://support.apple.com/kb/TA22541?viewlocale=en_US insists that the X is pronounced "ten,"]] but usually inserts the word "version" between the two tens (eg. Mac OS X ''v'''10.6). The page just linked is an ironic exception.

Up until this point, the operating system had been known simply as OS X.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* The SF trilogy by Ramez Naam: "Nexus", "Crux", "Apex". The second one even got a somewhat shoehorned TitleDrop in the respective book, as if to say: [[SarcasmMode "Hey, it's totally NOT this trope!"]]
