* In the episode "Ro-becca" Antoine of ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' gets [[BlackComedyRape a very aggressive femmebot to fall in love with him]] with his French accent. After a few minutes of trying to elude her in vain, he finally repels her with a surprisingly convincing [[TheAhnold Ahnold impression]]. Then he accidentally attracts her again by [[AccentRelapse relapsing back to his French accent]]. Sonic later unintentionally attracts Robecca's attention with a little French of his own...

* Mello's voice in the French dub of ''Manga/DeathNote'' is extremely sexy, so much so that it makes up for the [[WTHCastingAgency horrible]] casting of Near.

*** The French-Canadian dub itself is an aversion; the characters were given working-class ''joual'' accents (used by most French-speakers in Quebec), making them sound ''less' sexy than the "bland" International French voices used for most dubbed productions, which was probably deliberate. Homer's GutturalGrowler voice doesn't help matters.
* In ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', the title genius attempts to study for a French test by [[SleepLearning listening to tapes while he sleeps]]. The tape skips, and he wakes up unable to say anything except "omelette du fromage" (literaly, "cheese omelette"). Turns out this, among other things, drives the girls wild. [[CripplingOverspecialization However, his inability to say anything else leads to his lab self-destructing.]]
** A reference to Creator/SteveMartin's stand-up routine about speaking French in France, perhaps?
*** At least no one assumed he wanted to massage their grandmother.
