* The A&E version of ''Film/{{The Lost World|2001}}'' had both Robert Hardy ''and'' James Fox, as feuding professors of paleontology, which causes the VHS copy to smell like tea and tweed and pipe tobacco. However, it starred the somewhat more jovial Bob Hoskins as a sort of [[AdventurerArchaeologist Adventurer Paleontologist]], along with some dinosaurs, which lightened the mood somewhat.

* Inverted in the 2015 version of DangerMouse when Danger Mouse meets his American DistaffCounterpart, Jeopardy Mouse. She is much more serious and no-nonsense than he is, and points out that he's not much of a "secret" agent if he's got his own cereal advertisement on a billboard.

* The ''Film/CarryOn'' franchise made a fortune dwelling on this stereotype. When the series reach the 1960s, the cast always got caught into embarrassing sexual situations and double entendres, and because it was on the big screen they could get away with far more MsFanservice nudity than on TV. While many British people laughed at this SelfDeprecation comedy, others were embarrassed by the success of this franchise. Many who basically were the kind of people satirized in these comedies.

* Excalibur from ''Manga/SoulEater'' (who's at the very least [[GratuitousEnglish From United King]][[note]]I'm looking for him! I'm going to California![[/note]]) has a list of 1000 conditions anyone who wants to [[EquippableAlly wield him]] must follow. As such, there are two known people who could put up with this madness. One of them [[spoiler: finally got rid of him because [[MinorFlawMajorBreakup he couldn't put up with his constant sneezing]]]]. The other was KingArthur himself. Lord only knows how he did it.

* Franchise/{{Batman}}'s butler Alfred often comes across as a Stuffy Brit, which carries over to most adaptations. The most prominent exception is ''Film/BatmanBegins'', where he's given a British army sergeant's accent and backstory. In the comics he also had plenty of backstory: at one point it was that he was an SOE agent/saboteur for England during WWII and had a kid with a beautiful French Resistance named Mademoiselle Marie, but that's been dropped because of [[ComicBookTime timeline considerations]].

(Humorously, one of the standard portrayals of Alfred was on ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' - where, except for the first few episodes, he was voiced by [[FakeBrit an American actor]]!)
