Added DiffLines:

* In the AnimatedAdaptation of ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'', Tomjon Vitoller does this a few times to establish him as a ManOfAThousandVoices. He impersonates Hwel's accent when saying "You can come too, 'to keep an eye on me'" (Hwel being the Disc's Creator/WilliamShakespeare, he is of course [[UsefulNotes/TheWestMidlands Brummie]]), his father when quoting what Olwyn Vitoller has to say on the subject of drinking, and more significantly the Fool at exactly the moment Hwel notices the two of them [[LongLostRelative look startlingly similar]].

* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' had this to hilarious effect with Deb snarking her brother's girlfriend. "No, see, I made coffee, then I had a cup, and then Dex had a cup, and then I had another cup, and we kept having coffee like that (begin overexaggerated British accent)until the pot was empty." Textual descriptions scarcely do the scene justice - Creator/JenniferCarpenter's wonderful sarcasm really has to be seen to be appreciated.

* A rather inexplicable example in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' for Wii U. In his Palutena's Guidance conversation concerning[[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk]], [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Pit]] suddenly starts spouting off lines in a bad Cockney accent. "Inexplicable" because Pit himself admits to never having met Shulk before and the lines and particular accent (Shulk's accent being much tamer) in question are actually all taken from Shulk's best friend, [[FountainofMemes Reyn]], who isn't even in the game.

* Very brief example: In ''ChickenRun'', Ginger takes a stab at Rocky's accent when sarcastically saying "lone free-ranger." At least, it's less like her usual accent.

** Proposition Joe [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyewqmAKHto pulls this off]] (and much more effectively) when he's calling around the Baltimore Police Department to try to find out information on Herc, using three different accents (one for each operator he speaks to).
** Carver [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enUp3hxCd94 prank-calls D'Angelo Barksdale]], posing as a Korean counterman. Herc finds it unconvincing.

* Hannibal Lecter does a quick imitation of Jodie Foster's West Virginia accent in ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', most definitely not for comic effect.
* Alec Baldwin as Jack Ryan graces us briefly with his Creator/SeanConnery impersonation in the movie version of ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober''. An actual Sean Connery impersonation, which is supposedly a Captain Ramius impersonation.

* In ''Film/DieHard'', Alan Rickman fakes an American accent quite well as the German Hans Gruber pretending to be an American (Rickman is actually British). In ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'' Jeremy Irons likewise tries to fake an American accent as the German Simon Gruber pretending to be an American (Irons is also British). It is simply awful.
