* Guess what language the most academically, mentally, and physically developed female character in ''{{Persona 3}}'' (and ExpansionPack ''FES''), Mitsuru Kirijo, knows (and occasionally [[GratuitousFrench drops a line in]])? (This is an example of KeepItForeign: in the Japanese, she's using GratuitousEnglish.)

* Played for maximum {{Squick}} with the EvelynEvelyn song "Sandy Fishnets". The title character is French Canadian, and is the most popular girl at the brothel where she lives. Squick because of her age (she's murdered on "the day she turned thirteen").

* For a clip on ''Series/WorldsDumbest'' that takes place in Germany, Kevin [=McCaffrey=] comments that you could say "I love you; here are these flowers" in German and he would [[BringMyBrownPants soil himself]].

* In the dub of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', [[RavenHairIvorySkin Chane]] [[KnifeNut Laforet]] has a french accent...[[CuteMute as an inner monologue]]. Then again, the [[MonicaRial voice]] sure helped. YMMV on her father [[Creator/EricVale Huey]] [[MadScientist Laforet]].

* This trope is parodied in both ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' and ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', by Tamaki and Femio respectively. Given that they're voiced by the same guy in the English dubs...

* In the TV show ''Series/MyFamily'' Roger finds out his girlfriend finds foreign languages sexy, he proceeds to woo her in Welsh! Sadly he only knows a few phrases from when he worked in a tourist information centre. Alfie then tells her that he isn't really saying anything romantic and talks to her in welsh with some romantic phrases. They don't have any effect on her though and she just goes back to listening to Roger.

Spanish, Italian and Brazilian Portuguese: All sound HotterAndSexier (See the LatinLover trope for why) and exotic.

Japanese: Japanese usually sounds [[JapanesePoliteness polite]] and [[{{Kawaisa}} cute]]. [[note]]Unless you are Creator/NorioWakamoto, who seems to speak Japanese like German, as well as any actor in a Kurosawa movie[[/note]] [[note]]Or if you [[CallingYourAttacks yell a single word or phrase]], in which case it sounds badass. [[StreetFighter Hadoken]], anyone? [[/note]][[note]]depends on the speaker and the circumstances. Any survivor of the Bataan Death March or the Burma Railway might have a different perception of spoken Japanese as used by its [=PoW=] guards in WW2[[/note]]

German: German is the BlackSpeech, provided it's [[GratuitousGerman not spoken]] in the gentle tones of native speakers. Sounds {{Badass}}, [[LargeHam hammy]], [[AllGermansAreNazis totalitarian]], [[WebVideo/HitlerRants over-the-top angry bombastic ranting]] or [[GermanicEfficiency efficiently technical]].

* Inverted in ''IlivaisX''. Mille Chanteau has a blatantly French name and happens to speak French, but she doesn't have an accent and hardly ever says anything in French. She gets around regardless.
