* From ''Series/TheWalkingDead'', there's all the times where Rick pronounces his son Carl's name in such a way that it sounds more like [[Memes/TheWalkingDeadTVShow "Coral"]] instead.

* In one ''{{Partiallyclips}}'' comic, a musician realizes (mid-performance) that the lyrics to ''[[TheBeatles Eleanor Rigby]]'' isn't "Picks up her eyes", which ruins his interpretation that Eleanor is some kind of alien. This completely ruins his appreciation of the song.

* There was an article in a 1980s ''ReadersDigest'' in which the author recounted how, as a child, she thought that the first line went of ''The Star-Spangled Banner'', "O say can you see, by the daunserly light" and kept "daunserly" as her secret, magical word. She was eventually corrected on this by her family when she decided that it couldn't hurt to share that magical word with her sister who, of course, initially had no idea what she was referring to.

** David Lee Murphy's "Dust on the Bottle" being misheard as "Dust on the Bible"
** Ty England's "Should've Asked Her Faster" being misheard as "Should've Slapped the Bastard"
** The line "Let's all go down to Dumas Walker" from The Kentucky Headhunters' "Dumas Walker" being misheard as "…go down to do Miss Walker"

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=978cHrm5fvk This]] WebAnimation/YouTubePoop mondegreens a line from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''. (In case you're wondering, they're actually saying "gangway", as in "clear the way" or more bluntly "get out of the way".)
* The WebAnimation/{{Animutation}} trilogy, ''WebAnimation/ColinMochrieVsJesusHChrist'', provides misheard English sing-along lyrics for its three non-English songs. They get more plot-important as the videos progress. The first video, "French Erotic Film", only has a reference to "an old blue Scot called Dill" to connect to Colin becoming a Scotsman. "Plan 9 from Underpants" has mondegreens with references to Colin and Creator/AndrewKepple (the creator of the trilogy). By "Conquest of Animutopia", plot-important mondegreens are the norm and ones that sound like non-sequiturs happen less than half the time.
-->''May Colin be defeated,''
-->''may Colin leave, or are''
-->''we wrong, Canadian leader?''
-->''[[MythologyGag You’re Pokémon!]]''
* Mentioned in one segment of ''The Fingertips Project'' (a music video for "Fingertips" by Music/TheyMightBeGiants done by members of the WebAnimation/{{Animutation}} community); during the segment for "I Don't Understand You", mondegreens from "The Bonny Earl O' Murray" (the TropeNamer for "mondegreen") and "Advance Australia Far" appear.
* Many WebAnimation/{{Animutation}}s tend to run on mondegreens to fuel its weird and trippy imagery. See page for examples.
* The SpiritualSuccessor to Animutations, Buffalaxes (named for said youtuber, Buffalax, who created the genre), also runs on this, albeit usually without the trippy imagery. Unlike animutations, buffalaxes usually shun trippy imagery for the original music video. It's humor comes from the over-the-top offensive and expletive-laden mondegreens. Simply put, while the goal of an animutation artist is to make surreal imagery to go with a mondegreen of the song, the goal of a buffalaxer is to mondegreen the song with lyrics that are as offensive as possible. For example:
** The Indian song ''Tunak Tunak Tun'' with English words that sounded like the original Punjabi lyrics. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdG_fey4_ow The results are hysterical.]] "In your yard I am teh [[Franchise/StarTrek Ferengi]] man, very odd and chunky!"
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4vO4srRsHE Moskau! Moskau! Moskau! Billy is a handyman! Porcelain is the surest plan. Hohohohoho...hey! Moskau! Moskau! Dinah Steeler is too loose. Castro it's the time to lose. Hohohohoho!]]
** In the same vein as Moskau: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Flae7G3VsI Ching! Ching! Dschingis Khan! He liked the ho but then he liked the Hindu better!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AMf7R22TNk Kinky Tom! Kinky Tom! Here I sell the dog!]].
** And lastly, the evergreen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjteR9DEMOA Saint Sea Hat! Jew made you a beaten man!]]

* There was also a a Mondgreen that became AscendedFanon. When the premier was watched with Youtube captions, the sea serpent was shown with the caption "steven magnet". Fans immediately latched on to that, claiming "Steven Magnet" to be the serpent's name. Come [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E9SliceOfLife the 100th episode]], and he reappears (having not been seen in the 98 episodes in between), and goes by Steven Magnet.
