* The "English English" sequence between Austin Powers and his father during ''Film/AustinPowersInGoldmember'', which starts off as (subtitled) cockney but devolves into gibberish, with the subs devolving into "(?????????????) ...tea-kettle" before by ending on "[[SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein ...she shat]] [[OrphanedPunchlines on a turtle!]]".

* The main character in ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' uses the catchphrase "Kattobingu!", a made up word mashing Japanese term for "to flare up" with the English word "bing". Each fansubbing team translates it differently, and the official subtitles just give up and leave it as "I'm kattobing!".

Each fansubbing team translates it differently, differently (one fan sub actually left it as "I'll do kattobingu!" adding "(We have no idea how to translate this. Sorry.)"), and the official subtitles just give up and leave it as "I'm kattobing!".

* In ''[[VideoGame/MaxPayne Max Payne 3]]'', which is set in Brazil, whenever anyone speaks Portuguese, the subtitles simply show the untranslated Portuguese text. This is done deliberately so that the player shares Max's confusion of being in a foreign land and not knowing the language.
