* MyWayEntertainment, during their ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' parody. Ichigo's dad says, "Welcome to the world of motherfucking midgets and...''(gibberish)''", while the subtitles simply show a string of question marks.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebOriginal/TheStarWarGatherings'': In ''[[Film/TheForceAwakens Flies are a Sober Force]]'', the previously-[[TheVoiceless voiceless]] Drag Along (Chewbacca) suddenly gets his [[SuddenlyVoiced first line]] of dialogue: [[spoiler:(Greenwood)]]. The blog commentary has no idea how to react to this development.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth'': The subtitles make absolutely zero attempt to decipher [[TheUnintelligible Kenny's]] muffled speech, they simply put it as "Mmmmphphmm" or something similar.

* When K-pop singer Music/{{Psy}} appeared on the non-Creator/DickClark New Year's Eve special, the person in charge of the closed captions clearly [[https://notyouroppasandnoonas.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/psycc.jpg didn't understand his language]], and kept putting up [[CaptainObvious "Singing in Korean"]] as he performed.

* Webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'' has footnotes explaining the various {{Unsound Effect}}s and why actual onomatopoeia couldn't be used. In one case, the UnsoundEffect is "Sounds of distant ethereal chanting!", and the footnote is, "There ''is'' no feasible onomatopoeia for this."

* Ventriloquist Creator/JeffDunham has a bit in one of his routines in which his puppet Peanut claims to have deliberately rattled off a string of nonsense words, and then ''pretended'' to talk without actually saying anything, in order to confuse a group of deaf people watching the show with the help of a sign language interpreter.

(Peanut's rationale was that taking deaf people to a ventriloquist act was ComicallyMissingThePoint, much like a blind person going to a David Copperfield show.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons:'' On a plane fight to Scotland, the Simpsons watch a movie featuring subtitles to help with the actor's thick Scottish accents (mixed with TactfulTranslation). By the final line, the subtitles just turn into a string of question marks.
