* Creator/RichardBurton was Welsh, but early in his career adopted an Oxbridge accent because he felt that his natural accent would hurt his career.
** It can be heard in his reading of ''UnderMilkWood''.
*** It might have seemed inappropriate to hide his natural accent there, given that it was written by a Welsh poet (DylanThomas) and set in a fictional Welsh village.

Added DiffLines:

* The dub for ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', due to majority of the characters being British unsurprisingly evokes this. Some of the voice actors like Creator/BenDiskin and Creator/PatrickSeitz performed the accents decently while others such as Creator/JohnnyYongBosch... not so decently


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' feature Celica, an alien female who joins the humans in New LA while on the run from mutual enemies. In the English dub, Celica is voiced by Creator/MelaLee who most of the time performs the accent well, but it's painfully obvious that it's an American voicing her. Even stranger though is that some of the voice actors for the avatar character are actually British, resulting in some wondering why a Britisher wasn't hired for Celica either

** This is averted when it comes to Luke's voice in UK versions of the game however, where he's instead voiced by (British-born) Maria Darling. This is reportedly due to acutal British-English test players ''hating'' Luke's accent.

* [[VideoGame/StarFox Krystal]] may have averted this in Adventures where she really was voiced by an actual Brit named Estelle Ellis, but in Assault and ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]'' an American named Alesia Glidewell filled in for her.

* The few Brits ([[AdamWesting if they're not acting as themselves]]) who have shown up in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' have accents so ridiculous that it might even [[RefugeInAudacity avert]] this trope. RichardDawkins in particular was [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne pretty agitated by his portrayal]].
