** Both series use Chinese characters for all in-universe writing. Typically everything said on them is read aloud by the characters, but some which aren't can give insight to the story, if translated. Others are more mundane, but still accurate, such as shop signs.

* ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' has [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Cybertronix Cybertronix]], a simple substitution cypher. Sometimes it's used for gibberish, sometimes it's plot relevant, and sometimes it's just used for in-jokes and GettingCrapPastTheRadar. For example [[http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/b/b8/Megatron%27s_screen_in_Fires_of_the_Past_%28backwards%29.jpg this]] actually translates to "If you can read this seek help"

** Likewise, when Hanzo activates his ultimate he shouts "Ryuu ga waga teki wo kurau!" ("Let the dragon consume you!") or, if you're using one of his wolf-based Legendary skins, "Ogami ga waga teki wo kurae!" ("The wolf hunts its prey!")
** Mei has some dialogue in Chinese, like saying "Xie xie!" (Mandarin Chinese for "Thank you") when you use the "Thanks" emote.
** Mercy sometimes speaks in German; for example, when using her ultimate, enemy players will hear "Helden sterben nicht!", which allies will hear as "Heroes never die!"
** Widowmaker has some French dialogue.
** D.Va occasionally speaks in her native Korean.
** When Zarya uses her ultimate, she says "Ogon po gotovnosti", which her teammates will hear translated from the Russian as "Fire at will".
** Ana will sometimes speak in Egyptian Arabic; for example, when she uses her ultimate, enemies will hear "Warīhum quwitak!", which translates to "Show them your strength!
