* Music/{{Prince}} abuses this a lot in his song titles (2 and U used wherever possible), combined with LuckyCharmsTitle (an eye-symbol for I), and he even writes his lyrics and liner notes in Xtreme Kool Letterz. Famously swapped his own name for a [[TheUnpronounceable symbol]] that transcended this trope altogether.

* ''American Dreamz'' parodies this. The title is the name of the show-within-a-show, an ''Series/AmericanIdol'' [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed knockoff]] with a contestant played by Mandy Moore, who at one point sings a ridiculously vapid ballad with the chorus, "American Dreamz... ''dreamz''... with a ''Z''."

** There is also the species of cruel humanoid birds called "shrykes". They are obviously named after shrikes, birds widely known for impaling prey on thorns, only with a "y" instead.

* ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' has a running gag whenever someone uses this (or other bad grammer) where an echoey version of Linkara's voice appears along with the text "Because Poor Literacy is ''Kewl.''" Later episodes have him swapping out "kewl" for another word or phrase.

Elsewhere, he'll use some variation of this phrase to denote [[RougeAnglesOfSatin mistakes that could have been proofread out]].

** True for several titles as well. For example, "Ser" instead of "Sir". "Maester" instead of "Master".

** Although Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby (the creator of "[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Kirby Krackle]]") also indulged in this, e. g. with names like Klaw, Kalibak and Apokolips (this last one replacing a 'y' with an 'i'). Other Marvel examples from the 1970s and 1980s include Deathlok the Demolisher, Drax the Destroyer, Karisma, Mahkizmo, Nekra, Terrax the Tamer and Terrex. Also, FrankMiller called Daredevil's first love Elektra, while "Electra" is the more common spelling in English; however it was justified by making her Greek.

*** It's now lampshaded by Gul'dan in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'':
--->'''Gul'dan:''' And back then, 'daemon' had an 'a' in it, like I intended! It looks more mystical that way.
