* The author of ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'' often includes parts that are [[AltumVidetur in Latin]], which he says that [[SmartPeopleKnowLatin atheists and other stupid people will not be able to understand]]. However, the Latin is not well done, as "Ego vere fidelis in cuniculis" translates into "I am a true believer in mines." He later does an entire chapter in Danish, which comes out somewhat better.

* PlayedForDrama in "Helping ... Hands?", one of the fics in ''FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse''. As part of an investigation into Zebra culture (in response to Zecora's support of Corona), Luna gives Trixie a translated book of Zebra magic rituals. Unfortunately, neither Luna nor Trixie realize that the scholars who did the translation did so in just about the most slapdash manner possible. In particular, almost none of the rites are correctly labeled. The first spell Trixie cast was supposed to turn Lyra into a zebra, instead it turns her into a human. Then Trixie casts what is supposed to be a general counterspell, and discovers that it's actually a gender-change spell. And things only go downhill from there.

* The now infamous WesternAnimation/{{Beast Wars}} fanic ''FanFic/DinobotsOldTechnology'', translated word-to-word from the writers native French-Canadian to English via a dictionary with ''no corrections made otherwise''. And even better it's written in script form, rewriting an episode (one of the best of the series) for ''no apparent reason''.

** On the topic of ''Axis Powers Hetalia'', this is really the only explanation for the entirety of ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6319755/1/One_night_of_the_drop_of_rain One night of the drop of rain]]''. Sample quote: ''_TRANSLATION ERROR_ said the England in the surprised.'' There's a DramaticReading [[http://szaleniec1000.tumblr.com/post/39521626498/thanks-to-tvtropes-for-bringing-this-hilariously here]].

* The fandom of ''AxisPowersHetalia'' sometimes suffers from this in a very special way. Being that the main characters are all [[AnthropomorphicPersonification anthropomorphized]] [[MoeAnthropomorphism representations]] of various world countries. It's is possible to find horribly mangled [[GratuitousForeignLanguage Japanese, French, German, Russian, or any other language]] in a single fic or even a single chapter. It can be quite... painful.

* The Zebra spell book from the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic MLP:FIM]] fanfic [[FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse ''Helping... Hands'']] was translated by three ponies: One translated the spell descriptions, another the spell ingredients and steps, and the last one did the magic words. This produced some [[BodyHorror inter]][[GenderBender esting]] effects.
