* Groot retains this in the ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' movie. In fact, this was one reason ''why'' the role appealed so much to Creator/VinDiesel. [[spoiler: Subverted at the end before his HeroicSacrifice, where he says "''We are'' Groot" instead of his usual "I am Groot".]]

* The Arrandas in ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear'' find a child who appears to be a year old and only says "Eppon!", so that's what they call him, assuming it's his name. It ''is'' his name. [[spoiler: Though it's actually "[[MeaningfulName Weapon]]".]]

*** A very strange variant occurs with the NPC dialogue of Solgaleo and Lunala, the mascots of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. Their [[spoiler: primary pre-evolution, Cosmog, only says "[[MemeticMutation Pew]]!" in text form]], which obviously sounds nothing like its actual name. However, Solgaleo and Lunala instead say "La-liona!" and "Mahina-pea!" respectively, which [[BilingualBonus are Hawaiian]] for "Sun-lion!" and "Moon-bat!", which are exactly what they are.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VHFeMjEnjU This Pokémon parody]] of Ylvis' "What Does the Fox Say?" swaps the animal noises for this, resulting in some DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment humor. [[spoiler: It substitutes in Delphox's game cry at the last second.]]

* ''Podcast/TheAdventureZone'' has Davenport, a gnome who can only say his own name. [[spoiler: Heartbreakingly justified in that Davenport was the [[TheDogWasTheMastermind captain of the secret mission against the Hunger.]] When Lucretia wiped the rest of the crew's memories of their century running from the Hunger, Davenport was so intensely affected that [[MadnessMantra the only thing left to him was his own name.]] ]]

* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Something similar happened to Dexter in the episode, "The Big Cheese", when he attempted to use science to cheat on a French test by uploading his vocabulary phrases straight into his brain. The audiobook he was using became stuck on "Omelette du Fromage", and when he awoke in the morning that was all he could say for the remainder of the episode. At first those around him were swayed by his apparent class and sophistication, landing him popularity, money, and sponsorship deals, but it also rendered him unable to speak the password to access his lab, [[spoiler: which caused it to [[SelfDestructMechanism blow up.]]]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster SP'', one of the Rank A communications involves discussing the possibility of an image change with your idol. During Ami and Mami's image change, if you suggest that they change the way they talk they respond by doing this.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonJohtoQuest'': This trope is averted as the Pokemon in this series make generic animal noises. For example, Eddy is a sheep-like Pokemon and therefore it bleats like an actual sheep.

* ''WesternAnimation/HollywoodStepsOut'': Actress Ann Sheridan, known as "The Oomph Girl" is only able to say "Oomph".

* In the WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat cartoons, we have recurring bit-player Vavoom, an impish little boy who is only capable of saying his name, and [[MakeMeWannaShout saying it]] ''[[MakeMeWannaShout really]]'' [[MakeMeWannaShout loud]]. Interestingly, this becomes a source of conflict in [[Recap/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat1x103VavoomLearnsHowToFish "Vavoom Learns How To Fish"]]; Vavoom tries to warn a nearby town about a leaking Dam, but because he can only say his name in a way that literally blows people off their feet, they think he's harassing them and they try to capture and jail him.
