* ''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.

** It should be noted that this trope is much more trickier in Japanese than in other languages. While in different dubs, the Pokémon tend to say their whole name or sometimes just a part of their names, many Pokémon in the Japanese version often only use a couple of syllables, if not only one syllable (although, it is noticeable with Pikachu in every dub), but rarely ever say their full name. There are a good number of Pokémon who use different syllable ''combinations'' for their Pokémon, such as Yayakoma (Fletchling) saying "Yama" or Hinoyakoma (Fletchinder) saying "Yamma" or Harimaron (Chespin) saying "Riman" (or maybe "Rimon"). And then there are Pokémon whose speak is losely base on their names, such as Kimori (Treecko) saying "Kyamo" or Satoshi's and Shota's Jukains (Ash's and Sawyer's Sceptiles) saying along the lines like "Jain" or "Juain" (Shota's Jukain is also very prone of just making animal grunts).

** In VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon, every Pokémon is capable of normal talking, with the exception of Wobbuffet who still only says his name.

** In VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon, the first ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'', every Pokémon is capable of normal talking, with the exception of AnimalTalk. However, Wobbuffet who still only says his name.its own name in the English localization, likely due to a misinterpretation of the wordplay surrounding Wobbuffet's Japanese name (which roughly translates to "That's the way it is", referencing the catchphrase of Japanese comedian Hayashiya Sanpei). The sequel, ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Explores of Time/Darkness]]'', does pick up on the wordplay by having Wynaut and Wobbuffet frequently converse with the lines "Is it not?" and "That's right!" (the former being a translation of Wynaut's Japanese name).

** The Rotom Pokedex from ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' and the accompanying anime season also avert this, as (aside from ending his sentences with 'Roto' in the Japanese version) it speaks fluent English. However, this aversion is entirely engineered, as it is long established that 1) the regular Pokedex have a voice synthesis engine, and 2) Professors have studied Rotoms for a long time since the Black and White era. The Rotom Dex is simply the professors putting the existing voice synthesis engine somewhere easily accessible by the Rotom inside, and training the Rotom to use it. If previous seasons are anything to go by, a regular Rotom still speaks Pokemon Speak.
