** Speaking of Wolverine, early French translations changed his name to Serval. A small, spotted, ''African'' feline (admittedly, the French word for wolverine is "glouton", [[AtrociousAlias literally glutton]]).

* The Italian translation of the comic included with [[WesternAnimation/Transformers Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm]][[note]]Known as "Rise of Safeguard" in the pack-in version and "First (and Second) in Flight" in the retail version[[/note]] makes two big errors. First it translates Sentinel Prime as "Prime the Sentinel", then a line that originally said "Are you demoting me to drill sergeant?" into "Do you mean I'm back to teach sergeants how to do their job?"

* There's a German comic called ''Wendy''. While the comic itself is SoOkayItsAverage (but with some very [[NotBloodSiblings weird]] [[KissingCousins quirks]]), is the Norwegian translation a mild version this. It's not gripping, it's wonky, and a bit boring so kids won't find it interesting when first reading it. To make matters worse is there a bitch and while they could've used words as hurpe or kjærring (hag), but they chose the word for [[TheProtagonist Wendy]] to call her out on it is 'merr'' while truly being the Norwegian equalent of 'bitch' does it mean mare, the female horse. What makes this a BlindIdiotTranslation is that Wendy is an [[AllGirlsLikePonies All Girls Love Horses]] comic...

* The [[http://www.komiks.gildia.pl/ciekawostki/Lista_bledow_w_polskim_tlumaczeniu_Powrotu_Mrocznego_Rycerza Polish translation]] of ''TheDarkKnightReturns'' is ridiculously terrible: for example, some sentences (including plot-critical ones!) are translated into ''their exact opposites'' ("That doesn't make sense" into "That makes sense"); there are also many cases where the translator clearly misread the original (flesh/fresh, sweat/sweet).
