* The makers of ''Film/{{Bridesmaids}}'' preferred Crestor/ChrisODowd's natural Irish accent to his American one, and let him keep it, despite the fact that he was playing a [[OfficerOHara random cop]] in the American midwest.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' follow suit. One of the two major nations in the game is [[{{Wutai}} based on feudal Japan]], while the other is based on medieval Europe as with most other ''Fire Emblem'' games. Once again, this is ignored by the voice acting, which gives everyone on either side a Midwestern American accent.

* In ''Film/ThreeHundred'', Creator/GerardButler uses his natural Scottish accent for Leonidas and Creator/RodrigoSantoro uses his Brazilian accent for Xerxes. The rest of the Spartans are British-accented (including Australian David Wenham), while the other Persians seem to do a generic foreign accent. Lampshaded in the [[http://www.the-editing-room.com/300.html abridged script]], where he realizes he's supposed to be Greek and wonders why the hell he's been yelling in a Scottish accent the entire film.

** If we're bringing up Uwe Boll films, we have to mention Til Schweiger in ''Far Cry'': following in the noble footsteps of Schwarzenegger and Van Damme, he makes no attempt to hide his German accent while playing an American soldier. The Rampaging Boll even added a line acknowledging it, which just made the movie ''that much'' worse than it was already was.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' gives you the option to have soldiers speak their own language instead of English, avoiding the need for an accent at all...unless they're from a non-European country, in which case they don't have their language in the game and are automatically assigned English without a proper accent.

* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', despite claiming to be born in London, David Anderson speaks in KeithDavid's American accent. Where he was raised is more ambiguous, though.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot'': The late Creator/DonRickles has no attempt of hiding his American accent as the voice of Cornwall. Most of the characters (notably Garrett, Devon and Ruber) speak in an English accent. Other actors who are American are Bronson Pinchot and Jaleel White. The singers who provided the singing voices of Garrett, King Arthur and Lady Juliana are even American or Canadian. Singer Andrea Corr, Creator/GabrielByrne and 007 actor Pierce Brosman are typically Irish and sing and voice Kayley, Sir Lionel and Arthur respectively.

* Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation (1985-1990): White South African heel [[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra Colonel DeBeers]] sounds very American and not at all UsefulNotes/{{South Africa}}n. (His real name is Edward Wiskoski, and he's actually from UsefulNotes/{{Portland}}, [[TheOtherRainforest Oregon]].)
