* On ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' [[EnfantTerrible Onion]] and his father Yellowtail both speak a weird, mumbling language. Sour Cream (Yellowtail's stepson and Onion's half-brother) can apparently also understand them, and possibly Greg too, since he and Yellowtail were doing a business transaction in one episode.

Sour Cream (Yellowtail's stepson and Onion's half-brother) mother Vidalia and half-brother Sour Cream can apparently also understand them, and possibly the latter once unconsciously started speaking the same way. Greg too, may understand them as well, since he and Yellowtail were doing a business transaction in one episode.

* {{Mario}} and Luigi in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'' talk only in pseudo-Italian gibberish, which the English/Japanese-speaking inhabitants of the Beanbean and Mushroom kingdoms understand perfectly...most of the time, anyway.

* Darth Nihilus from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'' speaks in bizarre language that is possibly generated telepathically. None of the major characters have any trouble understanding it (including the PlayerCharacter), but the player is left clueless, as his dialog is not subtitled, in contrast to all the other characters' lines, which are (even when they're speaking perfectly clear English).

* [=R2D2=] from the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films communicates entirely in bleeps. 3PO is normally the one to translate (or [[RepeatingSoTheAudienceCanHear otherwise reveal]]) what he is saying for the benefit of the audience, although Luke is shown using a monitor in his X-Wing to translate for him in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.

*Reimu and Youmu from the latter parts of the ''Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX'' series (and, a branch off, ''Foundling''), though the latter is especially this, considering that most of what she says is "Muh" and whatever variant comes from that, the which other kids can understand. An example of this would be, in one chapter of 20XXV, that she exclaimed "Muh!" and an equally toddler-aged Sanae said, agreeing, "What Youmuh said!".
*[[spoiler:WildChild]] Ryuuko from ''Fanfic/CellarSecrets'' plays with this, as she can talk and is mostly this when she communicates with gestures, the which few people besides her sisters and would translate/interpret for her in any situation where no one else can understand, as was pointed out in chapter 26, where Nui says, vehemently, "I'm not translating ''any'' of that!" in response to Ryuuko's gestures towards Nonon.
