Added DiffLines:

* Played for laughs in the made for TV film ''Safety Patrol'' (1998), wherein the protagonist, Scout, tries to invoke this while he is in reality speaking [[GratuitousSpanish Spanish]], including using ''mano a mano'' in the wrong context. The nurse likewise interprets his Spanish as French. The villain speaks actual gratuitous French (''moi'', ''vous''), but like Scout's Spanish, the words are applied incorrectly.

Added DiffLines:

* The speech of V.V. Argost, [[BigBad the big bad]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' is often peppered with French. Case and point, his [[{{Catchphrase}} catchphrase]], "greetings and bienvenue!" Which is said a ''lot''.

* Waka in ''{{Okami}}'' uses French cliché phrases from time to time in the American translation. In the original Japanese version, he used GratuitousEnglish, but that wouldn't have translated well.

* In the instruction manual for ''BrutalLegend'', the description for a GrimReaper unit lists a number of synonyms for death, including "petite mort", which is literally French for "little death". Unfortunately (or [[RatedMForManly possibly intentionally]]), it's also an idiom for "orgasm", which is [[{{Squick}} hopefully not related]] [[NightmareFetishist to the monster in question]].
