* Much of the titles of the songs of Puella Magi Madoka Magica are in latin. The song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEnMs5hOTPM 'Sis Puella Magica']] sounds latin, but it is Kajiuran, a made-up language which takes Japanese and Latin. The lyrics were written by the same person who decided to have all of the OST latin titles.

In a show rife with magic users or scientific terminology, [[AltumVidetur Latin is the gear of choice]]. It's exotic-sounding, it has a word for almost everything, it contributed a significant proportion of the English vocabulary[[note]] English is as much Anglo-Saxon as Latinate in its vocabulary and a large amount of the "Latin" vocabulary actually comes out of Norman French. It's not as Latin as your Classics teacher liked to claim.[[/note]], and it's fairly well-known. With Latin by your side, you can spout off any string of awesomeness you want, and easily throw in a few less-than-Latin bits.

Added DiffLines:

* The beginning of the ''WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa'' episode "Sense and Senegambia", in a parody of ''WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner'', has a cricket labeled "Delicius insectius", but subverts this by labeling Pumbaa as ''Phacochoerus aethiopicus'' (the actual scientific name of the desert warthog).

** ''Duty Calls'' takes place on Periremunda ("lost world") and includes a plateau named Aceralbaterra, which translates as Maple White Land, [[GeniusBonus the name of the plateau in]] Creator/ArthurConanDoyle's ''Literature/TheLostWorld''. Bonus points because after being discovered by Acer Alba, Periremunda was rediscovered by "Magos Provocare," a name that could be rendered as "Professor Challenger."

* ''FarmerGilesOfHam'', a comic short story written by Creator/JRRTolkien and set in pseudo-Medieval England, contains a good deal of Latin, in place names, inscriptions, and so forth. It is all correct, Professor Tolkien being a linguist, but this trope is still acknowledged and played with. While dogs could generally speak in the [[CommonTongue vulgar tongue]] but not "Book-latin", the farmer's dog Garm "could not talk even dog-latin".

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': The Demoman's family motto ("In Regionem Caecorum Rex Est Luscus", or "in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king") is off by one letter; it should be '''Regione'''.

** The City Watch's motto is ''[[DirtyHarry Fabricati Diem Pvnc]]'', apparently an abbreviated form of a previous motto (''Fabricati Diem, Pvncti Agvnt Celeriter'' -- "make the day, the moments will pass quickly"), which LOOKS as though it means "make my day, punk", but doesn't - but one the members is convinced it means "To Protect and Serve".
