* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'': Battler and Ange share "It's useless. It's all useless!". Eva-Beatrice says variations on "Why don't you just roll over and die!". Gaap also has one, but it [[CompressedAdaptation only appears in the original visual novel]]. "But only if he's hot!" In addition, Maria has a few different distinctive {{Verbal Tics}} that would count if they weren't covered by another trope.

** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] occasionally by the villains. In one memorable case, Souther's overseeing of the humiliation and execution of a friend of Kenshiro's is interrupted by a bloodied and beaten mook sliding near him. Souther, [[GenreSavvy instantly knowing who did this]], casually says, "'You are already dead,' huh?" to the mook, who promptly [[YourHeadAsplode explodes]]. Cue dramatic entrance of Kenshiro.

* ''Manga/MyLoveStory'': Gouda's habit of internally exclaiming "I LOVE HER" whenever Yamato does something even remotely cute.



*** There is of course, the ubiquitous "Dattebayo" ("Believe it!").
*** Which is is an [[LikeFatherLikeSon inherited]] catchphrase from his mother, Kushina, who used the phrase "Dattebane" (roughly translated as "Ya know"). Admittingly, it served more as a VerbalTic, which was referenced when Naruto saw Kushina for the first time.

** Asuka has two: "what are you, stupid?" A pretty direct translation of "Anta baka?!" though the translation misses a bit of nuance (it's simultaneously intimate and insulting). And "This sucks!" for "Saite!" (the lowest).
*** Later on, she exchanges the former to "URUSAI!!!" (shut up) as she descends into depression.

The perennial ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' anime villains, the Team Rocket trio, are a [[CatchPhraseSpoutingDuo Catch Phrase Spouting ''Trio'']]. There is is a LampshadeHanging in an early episode where Ash asks why they always insist on saying "that dumb stuff." They give no straight answer. There most famous is besides their motto is "We're blasting off again!" ("Yana kanji!" in Japanese). In later Japanese episodes, they started saying "Ii kanji!".



** How could anyone forget "We're blasting off again!" ("Yana kanji!" in Japanese)? In later Japanese episodes, they started saying "Ii kanji!".
** Also in this series, whenever Ash catches a Pokémon he'll always say "Yeah! I caught _______!" ("_______, getto da ze!" in the Japanese version). Pikachu always follows suit with a "Pi-Pikachu!", which is lampshaded on Starly's capture as it isn't there.
*** Misty is the first one other than Ash to go through the routine when she catches her Horsea, and Ash complains about copying his pose. In the Orange Islands, Ash gave Tracey lessons on how to do it after Tracey caught Scyther.

** Kotone, the female playable character from [=HeartGold/SoulSilver=], has a speech quirk in the Japanese version of the anime in which she frequently asks rhetorical questions that end in "kotto ne?" meaning "right?" which is a pun on her name.

** Even some of the attacks seem to turn into catch phrases. "<Grass Pokémon goes here>, use your Vine Whip!" Not to mention the infamous "Thunderbolt!"
*** "Thunderbolt" is interesting, as the consistent use of it as a generic electrical attack makes the occasional uses of "Thundershock" (weaker in the games) and "Thunder" (stronger) stick out for the viewer.
** One of the Pokemon contest judges, Mr. Sukizo, has a catchphrase that is truly...remarkable!

** Luffy also has another one he loves so much he uses it in situations where it makes little to no sense and even when in (admittedly thin and already broken several times) disguise, rather than not say it at all he just makes sure to whisper it.
-->'''Luffy:''' Because I'm rubber.
