* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' plays with this in regards to Bucket, and by extension all other Rank-Rajat Minds. He has the capability to speak any and every language but is limited by which dictionaries he currently has loaded. Bucket himself doesn't have many at a time, but he still has more than any meatbag.

* Kelhus of ''Literature/SecondApocalypse'' has a perfect memory, above-genius level intellect, and an insatiable thirst for knowledge. It's no surprise that he learns new languages in about a week, just from talking with people who speak it. He even became fluent in the ancient language of magic in two weeks--which took his genius teacher six months to learn the ''grammar''.

* ''Literature/ASongOfFireAndIce'' has Missandei, who is specifically taken into Daenerys's court for her skill. Somewhat justified, as Missandei is a child, and children learn languages better than adults, and she has been exposed to many languages in her life.

Added DiffLines:

* Robin Goodfellow from the ''Literature/CalLeandros'' series speaks -- according to his own claim -- ''all'' the languages in existence, and probably those that are extinct, too. That is justified because he's not human and is old enough to remember the dinosaurs. Basically, he was around before language was invented and picked them up as they came around.

* Hoshi from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' can speak 40 plus languages.

to:

* Hoshi from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' can speak 40 plus languages. This is justified in one episode where a telepathic alien notes that she has an unusal mind which is hardwired to understand languages. Hoshi eventually programs the early UniversalTranslator that the later series take for granted.

* Hoshi from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' is made of this trope. It's not only the main reason that the character exists, but the in-story justification for why she's assigned on the ''Enterprise'' (given that she's not a good fighter, afraid of the noises the ship makes...).
** In one episode when encountering a telepathic alien he makes specific note that she has an abnormal mind; it's apparently hardwired to understand languages and that's why she is so good at them. She even ended up translating tonal pulses from a StarfishAlien and communicated back. Hoshi eventually ended up as the one to program the early UniversalTranslator that the later series take for granted.

* Researchers have estimated, on the basis of Gospel of Matthew, that Jesus was perfectly fluent in Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek and Latin. It also appears the Gospel of Matthew has originally been written in Aramaic, and translated into Greek.

* Vork from ''TheGuild'' claims to know all languages at one point. Aside from English, we see him speak Korean and Hindi. This is very likely a reference to the quote at the top of this page.
