* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' due to author HirohikoAraki's admiration of British and American pop music. Also his use of tarot cards, Egyptian mythology, Italian cuisine, and fashion labels as motifs.

* The theme song for ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' is entirely in highly-accented English. Some parts actually can't be sung in non-accented English without ruining the rhythm. Still, the lyrics fit the show pretty well...
** ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' doesn't use much English, except for places and the villain's names. However, Wyald's motto of "ENJOY EXCITING" kind of jumps you from nowhere.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''
** The Apostle Wyald's motto of "ENJOY EXCITING" kind of jumps you from nowhere. The translation changes it to "Enjoyment and excitement".
** Bishop Mozgus starts calling his attacks in hammy Engrish after gaining pseudo-Apostle powers, including "GODDO BUREEEEEEESH!" and "GODDO PURESHAAAAAA!"
** During the fight with Mozgus' disciples, Puck blinds the Twins with a yell of "PAKKU SPAARUKU!"
** Cap'n Bonebeard delivers, for no discernable reason, the lines "Come on-a my house!" and "Yes we can!"

The theme song for ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' ''Anime/Berserk1997'', "Tell Me Why" by the Penpals, is entirely in highly-accented heavily-accented English. For example, "Put your glasses on, nothing will be wrong" sounds like "Put your grasses on, nothing will be wong." Some parts actually can't be sung in non-accented English without ruining the rhythm. Still, rhythm, but the song is very catchy and a lot of fans love it because of NarmCharm.
** ''Anime/BerserkTheGoldenAgeArc'': All of the singing in Shiro Sagisu's soundtrack for the trilogy is in English, but at least
the lyrics fit the show pretty well...
** ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' doesn't use much English, except for places
are reasonably well-written and the villain's names. However, Wyald's motto of "ENJOY EXCITING" kind of jumps you from nowhere.performed by native English speakers.

Added DiffLines:

** Mikuru's time machine is known as a TPDD, which stands for "Time Plane Destroid Device." This bit of word salad is probably a reference to the similarly nonsensically-named [[Series/DoctorWho TARDIS, a.k.a. "Time And Relative Dimensions In Space,"]] though at least the latter consists entirely of actual words.

** Joseph's [[BigOMG "OH. MY. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!"]], "HOLY SHIT!", or "SON OF A BITCH!" All examples given were actually written in English in the manga, funky text (mostly) included. Justified in that Joseph is American and English is his first language.

* In ''[[LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'' Kyon is fond with peppering his speech with random English, somewhat lampshaded in the concert for the series. It's worth noting that in the dub his original line of "Why?" in English followed by "Naze?", or 'why' in Japanese, was kept intact, but reversed.
