* The ''Videogame/MechWarrior'' series has this to varying degrees in the voiceovers for the on-board computer, [[FanNickname Betty]]. In ''MechWarrior 2'', she speaks with noticeable gaps in her speech (Planet Twycross, ambient temperature [-3 5 1-] degrees). ''3'' and ''4'' have a much more human voice and drop most of the Mad Libs dialogue. Returns in ''Living Legends'', where Betty has pauses when notifying the player on status "Base [-ECHO-] [-FIVE-] Under ATTACK" or "Right External [-DAMAGED-]"

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "The Return of Chef". Since Isaac Hayes had left the show, all of Chef's dialogue was spliced together from old episodes. The interesting part was that [[spoiler:It was intentionally spliced together badly (and hilariously) to show that he was brainwashed, and spliced together well when he was snapped out of it]].

* In the ''VideoGame/PaRappaTheRapper'' games, you are encouraged to "freestyle" lines in the songs to get more points. Because of the way the lines are cut apart so that each word corresponds to a button press, attempting to "freestyle" often leads to this trope. In fact, simply ''playing the game'' as intended can sound like this trope.

* An ad for tax resolution company Blue Tax does this ''very'' blatantly with its phone number. This is because of the underlying marketing technique; they air the commercial during different time slots with different numbers for each one. That way, the execs can track which numbers get the most response and gauge the effectiveness of the advertising.

* For the 2013 MickeyMouse short ''WesternAnimation/GetAHorse'', much of Mickey, Minnie, and Pete's dialogue is sourced from their classic cartoons from the 1930s and 40s. In fact, it took a week for the editors to splice three different audio sources to make Mickey say "red".
