* Hilariously {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in an episode of ''WWERaw''. The Ghanaian-American Kofi Kingston has been portraying a Jamaican character, complete with the stereotypical accent. In the episode in question he inexplicably speaks in his American accent during a promo, and the ever-{{Jerkass}} [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold With a Heart of Gold]] Wrestling/TripleH just had to [[MetaGuy call him out]] on it.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/Arthur'' christmas special ''Arthur's Perfect Christmas'', the waiter at the restaurant Buster and his mom go to speaks with a French accent at first, calling Buster "monsieur" and serving him "omelette du frommage." Buster, confused, says he thought he ordered a cheese omelette, to which the waiter responds by sighing and saying in a distinctly American accent "It IS a cheese omelette!"

* In ''Webcomic/{{Niels}}'', [[AgentPeacock Agent 300]] speaks with what is apparently a subtle, refined Scottish accent. Get him wasted, though, and he slips into his natural thick Glaswegian brogue. [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench 250 very much likes when this happens]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', [[spoiler:Shockwave]] speaks with a slight David Warner-esque British accent, but his alter-ego of [[spoiler:Longarm]] has an American accent.
** Shockwave's voice actor is well known for doing a range of different voices. You might also notice that the ''TransformersAnimated'' Shockwave sounds exactly like his G1 cartoon counterpart - because the same voice actor from the 80s cartoon came back to play him!

* In the ''Radio/CabinPressure'' episode "Helsinki", Carolyn's accent drifts back towards Lancashire the longer she spends rehashing old arguments with her very Lancastrian sister. This is the only time it's suggested that her normal accent isn't her natural one.

* The Broadway Cast of ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'' seemed to have had a good dialect coach and try very hard, but unfortunately can't really carry the Yorkshire accent. Those attempting RP have more success.
