* In the Non-Designer's Design Book by Robin Williams (no, not [[Creator/RobinWilliams that one]]), some of the sample text, rather than being lorem ipsum, she has a very extreme Funetik Aksent version of fairy tales. So extreme that at first, and third glance, it looks like just a bunch of random words thrown together.

So extreme that at first, and third glance, it looks like just a bunch of random words thrown together. It's actually an except from [[http://www.crockford.com/wrrrld/anguish.html#Ladle Rat Rotten Hut Howard L Chace's famous transcription]] of LittleRedRidingHood in 'Anguish Languish', which is an entire book full of such homophonous nonsense.

* Shinji Ikari speaks Japanese just fine in ''FanFic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K''; however, he speaks ''English'' with an [[strike:Cockney]] Ork accent.

Misato comments that unlike most Japanese English-.speakers, Shinji could be mistaken for coming from England.... just from very rough parts of England.

* ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasonsTrioOfTowns'' has this in spades. Westown residents have a very thick Texas drawl with stereotypical words and phrases thrown about, but some Tsuyukusa residents like Ginjiro also have a milder version as a localization choice. The result is that Westown sounds like [[TheThemeParkVersion Hollywood Texas]], but Tsuyukusa sounds like ''actual'' Texas.

* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Radioactive Man]]'' comics, Dr. Crab is supposed to be a hideously mutated Russian, but his accent looks like a wild mixture of Russian and German sounds. This is finally explained in Radioactive Man's last adventure, where it's revealed that [[spoiler: the Germans had forced the (communist) Crab to conduct experiments for them during the Nazi era]].

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Hagrid, naturally, Baron Zemo, to a varying ([[LampshadeHanging deliberately noted. Apparently its appearance depends on his mood and whether he wants to suppress his accent or not]]) and Sean Cassidy (at first. It's shown early on that, as a side effect of [[MakeMeWannaShout his]] [[GaleForceSound powers]], he can shift accents any time he likes. The author explained that a) he got tired of it, b) it was coming out as a parody and c) [[spoiler: the average teenager at Hogwarts wouldn't understand it]]).

A Funetik Aksent (Phonetic Accent) is dialogue spelled phonetically, so that it looks the way the character sounds to someone with another accent. Since [[AccentTropes accents]] are one of the major ways of [[CharacterizationTropes providing characterization]], this is an easy shortcut to ''[[ButThouMust force the reader to act out the character correctly]]'' (admittedly at the cost of confusing those reading outside their language, and slowing those who aren't).

Though typically used now to highlight an exaggerated, clichéd and/or [[LargeHam hammy]] character, this trope is famous for its somewhat bad-taste perpetuating of [[{{Stereotype}} stereotypes]] in the past, portraying various cultures as less educated/intelligent/literate; a classic example is ''Literature/GoneWithTheWind'', where the black slaves' and poor whites' accents are given phonetically but the white owners' accent (which is every bit as thick) ''isn't''.

* The children's magazine ''Cricket'' had a brief example in a strip where the main characters took a trip to Australia and were alarmed by a local worm asking them "Did you come to die?" When the follow-up question was "Or did you come yester-die?", they realized what was going on.
