** In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', when Sauron was taken [[TrojanPrisoner "prisoner"]] by the Númenóreans, they dubbed him ''Zigûrun'' in their native language (Adûnaic), which means [[EvilSorcerer wizard]]. Since Adûnaic is implied to conform to a consonantal root system, like Hebrew and Arabic do in real life, Sauron's name while in Númenor would have been spelled as ''Z-G-R'', ''-un'' being a masculine agentive suffix.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'': The episode ''Grey 17 is Missing'' has a [[PeopleInRubberSuits humanoid predator species]] named Zarg. Tropes may not be bad, [[WordOfGod but in this case they were]]. Fortunately, the myth-arc half of the episode was far superior.

* Literature/LoneWolf absolutely lives off this trope, especially with its double A phoneme; the Negud-Kor-Adez, Kaag, Helshezag, if it sounds harsh and gutteral it's probably somewhere in the language of evil.
