* Dan Flynn, one of the New Orleans EMS personnel followed by the A&E series ''series/{{Nightwatch}}'', has a very pronounced New Orleans accent when talking to people in person, be it his partner, patient, or fellow first responders, or during his interviews.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' episode "Homecoming", when she speaks with her father in private, Hera slips from common "galactic" accent to one her father has. Presumably her upbringing starts to shine through.

* The Broadway production of the musical ''{{Spamalot}}'' plays with this -- the usually good British accents are sometimes dropped for comedic effects on certain lines, like "you are so gay" after Lancelot's angry outburst in the castle.

*** Rarity's accent slips occasionally too. In this case it adds to the effect, since it's that posh Mid-Atlantic sort of American accent that doesn't actually appear anywhere in nature, and it adds to the impression that it's another thing she's doing as part of her "image" as a fashion designer (Her parents, Magnum and Pearl, sound like they're from a Deep South trailer park).
