* ''[[http://pokepasta.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Katenka_Nowicki/Pokemon_Bloody_Gory_Evil_Scary_Version "Pokemon Bloody Gory Evil Scary Version]]"'', an [[TrollFic intentionally and hilariously]] bad ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' {{Creepypasta}} has the narrator speaking with one of these. Given her obsession with vodka, it appears that she's supposed to be Russian.

** Kehaar the seagull is written with a very thick accent as well (combined with YouNoTakeCandle), explained that as a bird he cannot properly speak the rabbits' language but can say enough to be somewhat understandable. It's possibly some variation on Norwegian, as Adams based Kehaar off a Norwegian he had befriended earlier in his life.

* This is often done to characters who speak with strange accents in nonwritten mediums, and usually not well. In the ''TransformersAnimated'' fandom Blitzwing gets the short end of the stick, with half his consonants reduced to 'v' and 'z'.

** With another nod to Transformers G1, accents and dialects are usually used; from Jazz's "black talk", to Ironhide's country.

** Additionally, Mannie [[LamphadeHanging lampshades]] his own use of the trope when relating his visit to the American South - he uses it heavily on the first line of dialogue, then ''apologizes'' because he knows it's distracting, and promises he won't do it again. This allows Heinlein to put the accent into the reader's mind, but avoids the distraction that it can cause, and further illustrates Mannie's CultureShock.

* In ''Literature/TortillaCurtain'' by T.C. Boyle, whenever Cándido tries to speak English it comes out like "No espik engliss." And one of the book sections is titled "El Tenksgeevee" as in ''Thanksgiving'', rather than the more correct and fan-prefered "El Tenksgivi" which would preserve Spanish spelling rather than putting that poor word in the anglicization blender.

* ''{{Persona 3}}'' has Bebe, a foreign exchange student who speaks with a French accent. He also throws in GratuitousJapanese, which makes for very confusing dialogue.

* Tony from ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' speaks with a combination of Germanic and Brooklyn street toughie accents.
** It's a 1920's New York gangster-speak accent (hence the preference for the word "youse") mixed with a slight lisp and his natural Germanic accent.
** [[http://www.charbythevampirate.com/comic/1081 This troll]] also has one.



* Tony from ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' speaks with a very strong accent that may or may not be intended to be something Germanic (Elements of his backstory indicate that Tony came from Germany or somewhere thereabouts, but the accent is not recognizable as such).
