* ''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.

A [[SubTrope Subs Tropes]] of {{You No Take Candle}}s. Compares [[ConfusingMultipleNegatives Confusings Multiples Negativeses]]. Not to be confused with loanwordses that have several possible pluralses such that [[PerplexingPlurals one does not know which one is right]] (Latin-ish words, etc.).

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".

* For the English translation of 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.
