* ''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".

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' universe, all the Covenant species, in addition to having a nickname (e.g., "Elites") and a formal name ("Sangheili"), also have a faux-Latin scientific name ("Macto cognatus"). You can read all the names and the meanings behind them in [[http://forums.bungie.org/halo/archive29.pl?read=865756 this forum post]].

* Many of the episode titles in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' are in Latin-ish. However, The original manga [[ShownTheirWork takes care to get all of its Latin, ancient Greek, and other languages correct, and has translations and commentary in the English-language Del Rey and Kodansha [=USA=] releases]].

This corruption of Latin, as the trope name should indicate, is called "dog Latin." (Incidentally, the trope title is in fact real Latin...for "Latin-like dog." No, it doesn't make much sense (unless we take it as some sort of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metonymy metonym]]), but [[ThisTropeNameReferencesItself that's rather the point]]. Plus, it sounds less like a porn actress than ''(Lingua) Latina Canina'', which is how "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_latin Dog Latin]]" would sound in ''real'' Latin.)

* ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' sometimes has the recurring alchemists use fictional latin-sounding names for plants, as a parallel to latin scientific names from real life.

* Many of the songs composed by YukiKajiura use the ConLang "Kajiuran" which is reminiscent of an odd blend of Japanese and Latin (used primarily when lyrical meaning is less relevent then the melodies and emotions that certain word sounds can express).
