** After giving a negative review of the toy Teddy Ruxpin, the toy somehow comes to life and, in a plot out of the ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', goes on the warpath against the Critic for the review. When the Critic sees that Teddy has somehow come alive, he exclaims disbelievingly, "You're not real! You're just... a thing... that's not very real!"

Named for the speech patterns of the teenage characters in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', which ran from 1997 - 2003. The show's creator, Creator/JossWhedon, is often credited with "creating" this form of writing, which is also called Whedonspeak. However, in the example section below, there are instances of this type of language from William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, HP Lovecraft, and PG Wodehouse, making this trope significantly OlderThanTheyThink. This type of speech has existed for as long as language itself, and is actually OlderThanDirt, [[ViewersAreMorons not invented in 1997.]]

** To be fair to Toby, he only slips into this when he's been frazzled by writing a big speech. The example above comes after writing the President's re-election victory speech.

* The kid protagonists of ''OverTheGardenWall'' speak in the familiar contemporary version, [[AnachronismStew despite the old-fashioned setting]]. Somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] where Greg and Wirt are concerned--[[spoiler:they're actually two kids from our world who ended up in the Unknown by accident.]] Less so with Beatrice, who says things like "Here you're like a hero and stuff, right?" despite [[spoiler: dressing like she's from the regency era.]]

* ''Warhammer40K'': Orks have a very direct aproach to naming things, applied both to their own gear and their enemy's: any cutting implement (sword, axe, knife...) is a choppa, guns are shootaz, any Titan-sized combat walker is a stompa, etc.

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Touji is guilty of this. In chapter 8 he tries to talk about his friend and Asuka behaving as a couple: -->''"You two. It's too weird, watching you and the Red De-... er, Soryu-san be all... couple-y.''
