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.

* '''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 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]].]]

* 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.
