* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'''s main EvilBrit N. Tropy was voiced by American Corey Burton in ''Videogame/CrashBandicootTheWrathOfCortex''. Although he had a grand total of one line, it's now infamous and widely considered the weaker of Burton's two roles in the game. Contrary to popular belief, N.Tropy's regular voice actor, Michael Ensign, is actually British.

* Anomen from ''BaldursGate II'' is an example of an in-story character being one. No one else in his family has such an accent, and the characters eventually decide that he puts it on so that he will sound more cultured.

*** Ren and Jun in the 4Kids dub of ShamanKing. They gave the brother and sister a consistent British accent, but um... they're Chinese. And then, for some reason, they chose to not give a British accent to Lyserg... ''who actually is British''.

* The dub of ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' has TroyBaker voicing November 11... and doing ''[[SuperlativeDubbing a really good job]]''.
** The other Brits in the series were also given accents in the dub.

* The first ''Spyro'' series often used RP accents for its dragon characters. The third game introduced a character voiced by the same actor as the title character, and while he does speak with a 'pip, pip' accent, it's fairly good.

* Stewie from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is portrayed with a Rex Harrison-inspired accent. Especially funny when he meets an ''actual'' British character and complains about her horrible accent.
** In an episode showing what an English ''Family Guy'' would look like, Stewie's British counterpart speaks with a heavy American [[DeepSouth Southern]] accent.

Added DiffLines:

* Narrowly averted with Jetta from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}''. The series' creator recommended the only British choice, while the others were Americans doing subpar Cockney accents. Jetta has a stereotypically lower-class accent which gives away the fact she is [[CelebrityLie not a rich celebrity]] like she says, though the others are too ignorant of British accents to notice.

* 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.
