* All the spells in ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' are in Gratuitous Latin, but only because they were all codified and written down by Sir IsaacNewton during the time Latin was the [[JustifiedTrope language of choice]] for Gentlemen Scientists. Just no one ever got around to updating them into English.

* ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''. As a group of Catholic monks are walking along, they repeatedly chant the phrase "Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem" [[labelnote:Lat.]]"Kind Lord Jesus, grant them rest."[[/labelnote]] and hit themselves on the head with boards. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7wc55oXWf8&NR=1 Watch it here.]] This is a phrase from a longer work known as ''Dies Irae''[[labelnote:Lat.]]Day of Wrath[[/labelnote]].

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''[[labelnote:Lat.]]''[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Magical Girl Magician Madoka]]''[[/labelnote]], the terms "Magical Girl" and "Puella Magi" are used interchangeably, [[MeaningfulName for good reason]]. ''Puella''[[labelnote:Lat.]]"a young girl"[[/labelnote]] also may additionally mean [[spoiler:"a young slave"]] due to it being derived from ''Puerulus''. ''Magi''[[labelnote:Lat.]]"Magician", or, more accurately, as it's a genitive form of the word ''Magus'', "of the magician".[[/labelnote]] can also mean [[spoiler:derogatorily, "charlatan", which means "one who deceives".]] Applying this terminology, the Latin title [[DoubleSubversion actually averts]] DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: the real English title to the anime is actually [[spoiler:''Slave to the Deceiver: Magician Madoka'']]. The Japanese title, however, averts the Latin title altogether[[labelnote:*]]''Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica'', which is elaborated in the anime. See the Main page for that description -- the Japanese title offers the similar possibility of interpretation.[[/labelnote]]. Still, either way, it's certainly an example of gratuitous Latin (although Latin [[GratuitousGerman isn't the only language]] this anime brings in, [[{{Faust}} for obvious reasons]]).

[[AncientGrome There is furthermore a significant inclination towards simultaneously combining both Latin and]] GratuitousGreek. Someone who is unfamiliar with one or both could easily confuse one for the other fundamentally on sound. The tradition of Greco-Romanism is most exemplified in the field of taxonomy (''exempli gratia''[[labelnote:Lat.]]"for example", or more literally "for the sake of example"[[/labelnote]]: ''TyrannosaurusRex'', both Greek ''Tyrannos'' and Latin ''Rex'' [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment mean "king"]][[note]]Well, sort of. ''Tyrannos'' implied a recently-established monarchy, whereas the Greek word ''Basileos'', the usual Greek word for "king", implied a throne that existed since time immemorial, or was at least supported by some sort of primordial legitimacy (e.g., the UsefulNotes/{{Byzantine Emp|ire}}eror, who by the Middle Ages went by the motto ''Basileis Basileon Basileionton Basiliei'': King of Kings Ruling over Rulers).[[/note]]).
