* A bit on ''Radio/TheNowShow'' compared the UK's age-of-consent laws with the more complex ones everywhere else, interspersed with their tabloid headline voice bellowing "LICENCE FOR PAEDOES!" After they describe the law in Spain, the headline is "LICENCO DEL PAEDO!"

* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has the ''¡La Fantoma!'' comics, about a superheroine [[XMeetsY halfway between]] ''Comics/BatGirl'' and ''Comics/ThePhantom''. While they were smart enough to realize that a female would have a name ending in "-a" and use the article "la" instead of "-o" and "el", and that "ph" is not pronounced like "f" in Spanish, the word for phantom in Spanish is actually ''fantasma''.

** Mostly in latin america, portuguese is treated as adding "-inho" or "-inha" at the end to everything. This actually causes a problem by mistaking "camisinha" as [[InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike "shirt"]]. It actually means "condom".

* In ''[[Literature/ErastFandorin The Turkish Gambit]]'', when Varvara Suvorova finds herself stranded with no money or documents in a Bulgarian village, she attempts to encourage herself that Bulgarian language is simply Russian with "-ta" added to every word. Fortunately for her, she never gets to find out if it's true, because the first person she encounters speaks fluent Russian.
