** The [[VideoGame/FireEmblemArchanea Archanea subseries]] has Athena, whose VampireVords and insistence on referring to herself in plural only make things worse.
--> '''Athena''': "Ve vill apologise vith our life."
--> '''Kris''': "Excuse me? No no, you used the wrong word again. Didn't you mean "thank", instead of "apologize"?"

** In a slightly more subtle example, when a saying Michael's using has more than one possible phrasing, he'll often get the saying right, but use the wrong version of it, an example of which being when Michael is comforting Dwight, who had just broken up with a girl, by saying, "You don't deserve her." While those words can be used to mean, "You deserve better," they are usually used to mean the opposite. but the words he used are usually even though the context indicated that he meant the opposite. Kevin is understandably confused, though Dwight actually thanks Michael, presumably understanding Michael's intention.
