* ''Fate/Apocrypha'':
** Shakespeare speaks in an archaic way, including using the outdated first-person pronoun "wagahai" to refer to himself in the Japanese version. In the English version, it dips into YeOldButcheredeEnglish at times.
** Atalanta, befitting a serious, noble huntress, speaks in an old, formal Japanese manner.

The language as it is used in the South has changed in the South, plus the addition of dramatically thanks to foreign loanwords (mainly English and Japanese loanwords, Japanese) and the internet. Meanwhile, the language as it is used in the North has been practically locked away in a time capsule and the North Korean government prohibits the use of foreign loanwords (meaning local equivalents have to be created). This, in combination with (from the South Korean perspective) archaic spelling and a nigh-incomprehensible accent, means that North Koreans and South Koreans have difficulty understanding each other, to the point where South Korean TV channels have to subtitle North Koreans when they're shown speaking and even a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ym3HnjBxPsw&app=desktop to the point that a literal translator app has been created]].

* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0cGW5bcQlM Objectivity video]] gives a good example of how common this kind of flowery language was in the 19th century. George Everest wrote a letter to his acquaintance John Herschel in 1844. The letter starts with:
--> "My dear sir, I went to the York Association, buoyed up chiefly by the hope that I might have the pleasure of meeting you there, and to my infinite disappointment found my journey insofar undertaken in vain. I greatly hoped to express to you my regret that there should ever have been the semblance of a cause for disagreement between us."

A lot of clichés surround the English language as it was used in the 18th and 19th centuries: a tendency not to shorten or abbreviate words; an abundance of hyphens (not only for compound words, but even for words with more clearly defined prefixes or suffixes); a fondness for now-outmoded typographical conventions such as the long ''s'' (ſ); and, of course, a love of SesquipedalianLoquaciousness and PurpleProse.

** Also, Quebec French sounds closer to seventeenth-century French than modern Metropolitan (Parisian) French, and thus, people from Quebec tends to sound rather "hick" to people from Paris.

Added DiffLines:

* Cyan Garamonde of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' speaks in an archaic form of Japanese because he's a traditional samurai from the foreign land of Doma, leading WildChild Gau to refer to him as "Mister Thou." (The first translation used YeOldeButcheredEnglishe, but the second cleaned it up into something more accurate.)


Added DiffLines:

* Bastian of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' and its sequel does a fair impression of a character out of Shakespeare... and nobody else does. Lucia notes that he'd never have been able to disguise himself as a merchant, so his cover was as a street performer instead.
