** Without any further justification at the moment, the aliens in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' are able to communicate with the human protagonists. This is noteworthy because the Andromeda galaxy is ''600 years'' away from anything that happened in the previous ''Mass Effect'' games. The protagonists aboard the ''Tempest'' are seeking a new frontier for humanity to colonize, meaning the sectors they're visiting in ''Andromeda'' have never had humans there before, yet communication with the natives there is a non-issue.

** The Andalites are a telepathic species, so it's justified with them.

** The Andalites are a telepathic species, species so it's justified with them.when they "speak" an English speaking listener hears English and translator chips so they can understand languages spoken to them.
** The Nesk learned English by spying on humans for a short period of time. A character even comments on how weird it is that random aliens speak English.

* In ''Series/EmeraldCity'', the Ozians have languages of their own, but some of them also speak English, which also seems to be the official language spoken in the Wizard's domain. This is how the dog gets its name. "Toto" is Ozian for "dog", and Dorothy figures it's as good a name as any, since she hasn't had a chance to find out the dog's real name from the cop.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/StardewValley''. The Dwarves, which are also very ''[[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame atypical]]'' Dwarves, are revealed to be a race of aliens, and they do '''not''' speak English. There is a considerable [[LanguageBarrier language barrier]] between the player character and the Dwarf you meet in-game. In order to understand them, you have to get all four Dwarf Scrolls and donate them to the museum for a Dwarvish Translation Guide.

Sometimes, the language is quite like the earthen language of the author, but the words and expressions involving "earth" and "human" are replaced by puns using the word the aliens uses to name themselves.

**When the four return to C'hou in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', everyone, from Natives to outworlders to monsters, speaks English in a wide variety of accents. This is given a HandWave by Spectrem, who says that the Pyar gods put a field around the planet so everyone could understand everyone else.
