* In ''TheAdventuresOfShirleyHolmes'', Bo's parents are Ukranian immigrants. They speak with a heavy accent and own a fish shop in Redington. They named their son "Francis Boris" after St. Francis—a name he doesn't like all that much, he prefers going by "Bo". His father was also part of a typical Ukranian dance troupe, and he has a cousin that is part of one as well.

* The parents of Mr. Invincible, one of the [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] heroes of the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', arrived in the United States just in time for Invincible to be born an American citizen rather than a Greek citizen. They both have heavy accents, try to do things as Greek as they can do them, and complain about Mr. Invincible "abandoning his Greekness" by assuming the name "Mike Phillips" rather than his birth name, Mikos Phillipidakos.

* Done cleverly in ''KungFuPanda''. Po's father is a goose with a thick accent and Po is a panda without an accent. It's obvious to the viewer that Po must be adopted but the film doesn't make much of it and it's pretty much forgotten. Turns out this little tidbit is ''very'' important to the plot of the sequel.
