* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': while Magneto isn't British, being German Jewish by background (though in the comics he spent some of the post-war period working for a Western intelligence agency that might have been [=MI6=], he is depicted by Creator/IanMcKellen with a classic resonant RP accent, one that Creator/MichaelFassbender tries to imitate with mixed success.

* [[spoiler:Wheatley, eventually,]] Inverted, then [[spoiler: played straight]] in ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''.''VideoGame/Portal2''. Wheatley (voiced by British comedian Stephen Merchant) follows you around for the first portion of the game and guides you through the facility. While his advice [[IdiotBall isn't always helpful]], he's generally very nice towards Chell... [[spoiler: Up until his FaceHeelTurn at the end of Chapter 5, where he's hooked up to [=GLaDOS=]'s body and becomes DrunkWithPower, effectively corrupting him to the point of insanity. From that point onward, he takes [=GLaDOS=]'s place as the main antagonist of the game, and fills the role of FinalBoss.]]

** Although that was more incidental, since union rules for British films at the time required a minimum number of speaking parts for British actors, so a lot were cast as Imperial officers. Both the Imperials and Rebels were played by mostly British actors but all the Rebels' voices were later dubbed by American actors. A few sources claim that the upper-class English accent is the default accent on Coruscant; everyone listed below (except C-3PO) either grew up or spent large amounts of time living there.
** The late Creator/PeterCushing (Grand Moff Tarkin), who actually played mostly good guys in his career -- including Franchise/SherlockHolmes and Doctor Who in ''Film/DrWhoAndTheDaleks'' and ''Film/DaleksInvasionEarth2150AD''.

** Tavington (Creator/JasonIsaacs), based on the RealLife [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banastre_Tarleton Banastre Tarleton]]. Sure, it's a movie about the American Revolution, but did they really have to make him so utterly cruel and despicable?

** While the Templars are an international organization who will recruit from any country, throughout the games it's implied that a large part of their power base is in Britain; they back the British Empire throughout the Colonial Period (the Assassins back the French) and London is indisputably their territory until the events of ''Syndicate''.
