*** There's all the adaptations that pronounce it "Professor Ex-avier," just to make it clear to [[ViewersAreMorons stupid viewers]] that there's an X in his name. "Xavier" is an archaic Spanish spelling of "Javier," so it should be "khavi-air" (or "zavvy-ay", in French), people. ("Ex-avier" is a common (mis)pronunciation of "Xavier" in RealLife, though).

is more Funetik Aksent and Letters 2 Numbers; it's not done because it's "kool"
* Iain M. Banks SF novel "Feersum Endjinn". Also abuses "1" and "&" and whatever lies on the keyboard (otherwise one could argue it's mostly phonetic spelling - interestingly, a German can read the English original almost easier than the German translation).

* A lot of bands in the 1960s [[XtremeKoolLetterz mysspelled]] their names, often for a "psychedelic" effect from 1965-66 onward. This was arguably kickstarted by Music/TheBeatles in England in the early '60s, then by Music/TheByrds in America in 1965. The Left Banke had a big hit in 1966 with "Walk Away Renee." Then you had lesser-known bands like the Myddle Class (featuring future Music/SteelyDan member David Palmer on vocals), Kenny and the Kasuals (whose best-known song is called "Journey to Tyme"), and Zakary Thaks (who didn't have any members named Zachary...or Zakary), just to name a few.

** Although StanLee and 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.

* [[SuperMarioBros Bowser's]] vehicle in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' was originally called the Koopa Klown Kar. For [[UnfortunateImplications obvious reasons,]] it's spelled normally in newer games.

* ''KrazyKat'' is one of the very first examples. She had bit parts in George Herriman's assorted Sunday comics as early as 1903, was called "Kat" by 1909, and "Krazy Kat" by 1910. By the time she got her standalone strip in 1913, she'd developed her personal dialect, a mixture of Spanish and Yiddish accents with Ks everywhere.
