The ultimate of this trope is, unsurprisingly, UsefulNotes/McDonalds, who use their 'Mc' prefix on almost everything they sell. In their case, not only have their words made the general vernacular, but also their naming habits, as TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McWords has proved]].

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'': Creator/AdamSandler's Opera Man from the early 1990s would sing his commentary in an exaggerated Italian accent by adding "a" or "o" to the end of many of his words. (An example (from {{Wikipedia}}): About the LA Riots - "La Chiefa Policia, no dispatcha gendarme/ morono, no respondo/ no excusa, bagga doucha!")

** Homeric ma-infixation is an interesting application of {{Hyperafffixation}} in that the particle "-ma-" is an infix (it is put in the middle of a word), producing words like saxomaphone and babamabushka. Homer, as you can guess, uses it a lot.

* In the AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho drama ''Spare Parts'', generally regarded as the definitive Cybermen origin story, it's revealed that the name of the Cybermen comes from the Mondasian cultural practice of adding "man" as a suffix to any designation of a person, eg "Doctorman", "Sisterman", etc.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia "Utopia"]], we meet Chantho, an insectoid alien who begins her every sentence with "chan-" and ends it with "-tho." She ''can'' choose not to do it, but it's implied that it's her race's equivalent of swearing like a sailor.

* ''VideoGame/KingOfFighters'': [[CuteButCacophonic Yuri]] [[BadassAdorable Sakazaki]] has a habit of ending nearly all of her sentences, and certain words, with "-tchi". It was originally a schtick devised by her voice actress, Kaori Horie, [[ThrowItIn which stuck]] and has since become a regular part of her character's [[VerbalTic speech pattern]].

* UsefulNotes/McDonalds is the TropeCodifier for this, with their menu of 'Mc' foods. [[ExaggeratedTrope Soon everyone started doing it]] (although it is mostly, but not always, used to demonstrate [[{{Cliche}} how cheap or quickly-made something is]]), with words like '[=McMansion=]' coming out of the woodwork.

** This phenomenon doesn't just happen with cheaply made products or joke references; there is some surprising official merchandising happening, too. This troper worked as a McDonalds manager for a time, and was dumbfounded to learn that the stamp used to void checks and paperwork was actually a "Mcvoid" stamp. As in, it literally stamped "Mcvoid" in bright red letters.
