* Inverted in the case of words ended in "s" that people automatically assume are plurals. A common example for spanish speakers is considering the existence of the phrase "a pair of tenis shoes" and assuming that the singular would be "a teni shoe."

A less common but not unheard of example is thinking "analysis" is the plural of "analys", or even thinking the words are plural: "analys", singular: "analy."

* For the English translation of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' the director was quite insistent that the pilots be called "Children" even individually. Thus Rei is the "First Children", Asuka is the "Second Children", and so on.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' On the rare occasions Mario has spoken in full sentences, he'll sometimes adds an extra "es" at the end of pluralized words that end with an "s" (ex: "gameses" instead of "games"). Luigi, however, doesn't really display this habit.

* And just to make things confusing, there are edge cases when this trope is ''proper English''--primarily when you have a cluster of things, typically proper nouns, that already end in an S. If [[Franchise/StarTrek James T. Kirk]], Film/JamesBond, [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius James "Jimmy" Neutron]] and [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} James of Team Rocket]] were dining together, you could describe it as a table of Jameses. Likewise if you met the creator of the WalkyVerse webcomics and his wife, David and Maggie, you could say that you had met the Willises.

Sometimes a characterses will display their lacks of eloquenceses (or [[EloquentInMyNativeTongue lack of familiarity with the English languages]]) by randomly pluralising wordses that frankly don't needses pluralising (including wordses that are alreadys pluralses). This tends to go with improper verb conjugation too, sometimeses completely nonsensically. E.g., instead of "I am a troper", expect to see "I are a tropers" or "I ams a tropers".
