* ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' has multitudes, though [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as Camp Jupiter ''is'' the surviving remnant of Ancient Rome. Most of the camp's terminologies are in Latin, including "Via [insert name here]" to designate roads, "Centurion", "Praetor", "Augur", the camp's official name "Legio XII Fulminata" (the Twelfth Legion, [[ShockAndAwe Thunderbolt]]), and its title SPQR ("Senātus Populusque Rōmānus"; this one is [[ShownTheirWork directly lifted from the emblem of the Roman Republic]]).


Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series has a surprising lack of use of Gratuitous Latin, especially in contrast to [[Creator/SquareEnix its creator]]'s frequent use for [[Franchise/FinalFantasy its sister series]]. The series mainly employs GratuitousItalian, which is significantly less pretentious (though to untrained eyes both languages look alike). Nevertheless, this trope is still present: the protagonists of ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth By Sleep]]'', for example, are named Ventus ("Wind"), Terra ("Earth", though this word has a feminine gender), and Aqua ("Water"), all of whom are named to fit the ThemeNaming of Sora ("Sky"), Riku ("Land"), and Kairi ("Sea"), respectively, which are in Japanese. [[AndZoidberg Plus]] Vanitas ("Emptiness"[[note]]This naming has a clever use of wordplay in Japanese and Latin. In Japanese, "Sora" can both mean "Sky" and "Vacuum", which very much fits Vanitas as he's basically a [[spoiler: black-haired Sora]]. Plus, Vanitas sounds similar to Ventus, whom he was created from.[[/note]]).

* Richard von Krafft-Ebing wrote the more lurid passages (and [[ForeignLanguageTitle title]]) of his book ''Psycopathia Sexualis'' in Latin in the apparent belief it would keep the merely salaciously curious away. This is parodied in "Expurgation by Latin" from Michael O'Donoghue's ''Pornocopia'', where the untranslated phrases supposedly containing the naughty parts are actually excerpts from ''Literature/CommentariesOnTheGallicWar''.

* [[MasterOfIllusion Mysterio]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' uses Latin to make his EvilSorcerer guise seem more dramatic and arcane. In fact, many of his phrases are [[BilingualBonus quite funny]], thanks to some subtle AuthorAppeal.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', 21 tries to be intimidating by yelling "''Semper Fidelis, Tyrannosaurus Rex!''" when trying to say "''Sic semper tyrannis''". Upon which he is informed he just said "Always faithful, terrible lizard king", which he still thinks is pretty cool.
