* The [=XBand=] service used a primitive modem cartridge for the SNES/Genesis to connect to players (as if on a BBS) through a now-defunct service. The company that made it went on to create a Windows-based [=MPlayer=] service, which also eventually shut down. What made it even more Xtreme was the ''A'' in the logo was upside-down. Wait for it... '''XB∀ND'''!

* Irn Bru, Scotland's most popular carbonated drink and hangover remedy, is actually [[EnforcedTrope an involuntary example]]. The Advertising Standards Agency wanted Barr Soft Drinks to change the name from "Iron Brew" lest it mislead people into trying to use it as an over-the-counter anaemia remedy, but Barr had based their campaign on the fact the new drink was a similar colour to iron ore and gone all-out with the ForgingScene imagery for the TV spots etc, and didn't want to have to start over from scratch. A compromise was reached by spelling the name phonetically, and the rest is history.

* In the second Disney episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}'', Doug's new school is having a contest to see who can come up with a name. One of Skeeter's suggestions is "Kool Skool". He then has to point out he spelled it wrong on purpose.

"[[LeetLingo Leet speak]]" (or "1337") can be considered this trope played to extremes, where almost every normal letter is replaced by some form of "extreme" counterpart, which to those unfamiliar with the meme can vary anywhere from "slightly different" to "utterly unreadable," depending on how "hardcore" the user wishes to appear; it's believed that leet originated from the cracking[[note]]"Hacker" is a case of YouKeepUsingThatWord[[/note]] community, which may explain why it's never spread beyond circles of computer geeks (and online gamers).
