** This gem is a shining example:
-->Seize all hearts and consummate the great heart. All hearts to be one, one heart to encompass all.
--> Realize the destiny: the realm of Kingdom Hearts. The great darkness sealed within the great heart.
--> Progeny of darkness, come back to the eternal darkness. For the heart of light shall unseal the path.
--> Seven hearts, one Keyhole, [[ThereCanBeOnlyOne one key to the door.]] The door of darkness, [[ImmediateSelfContradiction tied by two keys.]]
--> The door of darkness to seal the light. None shall pass but shadows, returning to the darkness.
--> Ones born of the heart and darkness, hunger for every heart until the dark door opens.

* ''Film/MysteryMen'': The Sphinx speaks entirely in bizarre IceCreamKoans. It makes him seem terribly mysterious to everyone - with the exception of Mr Furious, who just finds it annoying. (Not that Furious isn't above cracking meaningless tough-guy platitudes about how angry and dangerous he is, either.)

** And this exchange from "Bullet With Butterfly Wings":
--> Tell me I'm the only one
--> Tell me there's no other one
--> Jesus was the only son, yeah
--> Tell me I'm the chosen one
--> Jesus was the only son for you

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the incantations of Kidō spells make no sense at all by common standards. For instance: "Ye Lord! Mask of blood and flesh, flutter of wings, he who bears the name of man! Inferno and Pandemonium, the sea barrier surges, march on to the south! Hado number 31, Red Flame Cannon!"

[[JustifiedTrope But that's fair enough]] as they ''are'' magical incantations and aren't supposed to convey any actual ''meaning.''

* In her essay ''Literature/FromElflandToPoughkeepsie,'' UrsulaKLeGuin took many of these on. The worst, she claimed, was "Ichor", the 'infallible touchstone of the 7th rate'. For the record, "ichor" is properly the blood of angels or gods, not "blood in general" or "any liquid." Le Guin makes a point of noting this.

* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'': The ancient mantra of the Knuckles Clan became this in the comic: "The servers are the seven chaos. Chaos is power, enriched by the heart. The controller is the one that unifies the chaos". It came from the games, where it actually made sense, as it was saying (albeit in a somewhat cryptic way, mainly due to the wording in the English dub[[note]]a more direct translation of the third sentence would be "The one who masters that also controls the chaos"[[/note]]) that the [[MineralMacguffin Chaos Emeralds]] can transform wishes into power, so one needs have control over their will and emotions to be able to master their powers. But in the Archie Sonic universe, [[OrphanedReference Chaos Emeralds were far more numerous and disposable]] [[AdaptationInducedPlothole and had never been shown to react to will or emotions.]] The writers seemed to realize this (or perhaps they just didn't [[CriticalResearchFailure know the actual meaning...]]), as they tried to HandWave it by taking the first sentence a tad bit too literally and saying that it referred to seven [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Chao]] ''who were called the Seven Servers'' and had been transformed into seven Super Emeralds long ago. Too bad that this still left most of mantra unexplained and only resulted in it [[VoodooShark becoming even more confusing and nonsensical]]...
