* Boomhauer from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' isn't ''completely'' incomprehensible, just hard to understand. However, regular characters have no trouble understanding him, and in fact consider him the wisest and most eloquent character. There are occasionally gags about minor characters not understanding him at all, though.

Fiction may exaggerate, but this trope is [[TruthInTelevision not unheard of in real life]]. People with speech impediments or thick foreign accents tend to be easier to understand by family and longtime friends, leading to conversations that can certainly appear as this trope to onlookers. Children who don't make their stuffed animals act like humans make them act ''exactly'' like this trope.

* In ''Manga/Classi9'', Schumann is either a SilentBob or speaks too softly for most people to understand what he says. His classmates and the Chopin-Liszt duo, who are used to him, understand him perfectly well, and it is possible Tchaikovsky is learning too. Liszt plays the TranslatorBuddy and also does the RepeatingSoTheAudianceCanHear.

* The strange animals on ''Anime/NagasareteAirantou'' start this way to Ikuto. Everyone understands their nonsense but him until after he spends an episode trying to look for Kuma-Kuma. Seems that after that they can be heard speaking Japanese. Apparently he 'got used to life on the island'.
