* '''Brutally''' deconstructed in the VideoGame/KantaiCollection doujinshi "[[NeverTrustATitle The Sixth Destroyer Division Will Be Best Friends Forever]]". It starts with Hibiki returning from Russia, having finished her remodelling into Verniy. However, as a side effect, she can now only speak Russian. The rest of the 6th Destroyer Div. can still seemingly understand her due to their friendship. And in the end, Verniy is seemingly at peace, surrounded by her friends. [[spoiler: Then came TheReveal: the rest of the 6th Destroyer Fleet ''completely misunderstood'' pretty much everything Verniy said. She actually hates the green tea she's been given, and has no idea who's this "Hibiki" that they keep talking about, because she was strapped to a [[LaserGuidedAmnesia mind-wiping machine]] as part of her remodelling process, which [[DeathOfPersonality erased her entire personality]].]]

** The various alien anatomies would make it impossible for everyone to be able to speak one standard language, but understanding other languages is fairly easy - Chewbacca understands [[TranslationConvention Basic]] but can't speak it, while Han understands Shyriiwook but can't speak it. Anyone wanting to get by as a trader, merc or other interplanetary profession would need to learn at least a half-dozen common languages. Protocol droids like [=C3PO=] provide special services as they can both understand and synthetically speak several thousand languages. Also, R2-D2's bleeping is a language of its own, which service droids use and people can learn to understand.

* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'': Stitch can persuade someone to let them go, and help Stitch save his [[TrueCompanions ohana]] with a simple "Ih." Later on it turns out that "ih" just means yes, which makes sense given that it was in response to "you really expect me to [all that stuff] just like that?!"

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.

onlookers. Similarly, [[BabyTalk babies who are learning to talk]] will often be understood by their families much more easily than by adults who haven't been around toddlers anytime lately.

* Groot's vocabulary in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' is composed almost entirely of "I", "am", and "Groot" (always said in that order). Rocket Raccoon has no trouble understanding what he's saying.
