* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', Furudo Erika is an example of this in Japanese. Her given name, which would usually be written エリカ in [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseWritingSystem katakana]], instead has the archaic spelling ヱリカ. Fitting for a MarySue {{Deconstruction}}.

* Music/LedZeppelin. Because their manager thought dropping the 'a' from Lead would help to prevent "thick Americans" from pronouncing it "leed". Famously produced an album with a 'title' that could not be vocalised or spelled at all, only four symbols, which veers beyond this trope through LuckyCharmsTitle to TheUnpronounceable.

* Early advertising example: A 1950s print ad for Heinz baked beans included the caption, "Beanz Buildz Kidz!" And that wasn't even their main slogan... it was "Beanz Meanz Heinz".[[note]]That was probably unintentional in terms of Xtremeness, seeing as how the brand name is, of course, Heinz, and the ad was just a play on it, not on Sup4 Kule L3tt4rz.[[/note]]

* There was once a restaurant named Goombazz Big City Eatzz, most known for being the subject of an episode of ''Series/RestaurantImpossible''. As the owner was an old man with a technophobic streak, the edginess was unintentional: When host Robert Irvine asked him about the spelling, he said that the double Z's come from the word "pizza."
