* Mr Blobby, the British children's craze of the 1990s, only communicated through repeated use of his name.

* The British preschool series ''In the Night Garden...'' has every character (except for Igglepiggle, who only squeaks, and the Pontipines, who only speak in squeaks) doing this. However, all of the speaking characters can also say "Pip pip onk onk" - roughly translated, "See you later, I'm sure".

* In ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha!'' the wrestler Snowpea usually only repeats his ([[ViewerGenderConfusion or her]]) name. Except at the end of one episode, where he said the name of his MMORPG AuthorAvatar, "Rutabega."
** Male, judging by his [[DistaffCounterpart dance partner]] on a certain [[HighSchoolDance episode]].

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''
** Generally averted in the main series games, with exceptions. The audio cries of Pokémon do notably ''not'' sound like this in the games (although in some cases they ''might'' sound a bit like their Japanese names; particularly Clefairy and Chatot), and their typical NPC dialogue text consist of either garbled letters, or as random grunts/roars/squeaks/utterances (such as "Tralalalala" for Petilil). An exception is Bewear, whose cry sounds like a deep, muffled "Beware!".

** [[ZigzaggedTrope Zig-zagged]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonGo.'' Certain Pokemon, such as [[SeriesMascot Pikachu,]] say their names. Others imitate [[VoiceGrunting their electronic cries]] from early games. Still others have entirely new voices resembling natural animals.

** Played straight in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''; not only do most Pokémon say their names, but they're also joined by [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Yoshi]], below. There are a few exceptions: Lucario, who can pronounce English, presumably having something to do with Aura; Charizard, who merely roars and growls; and Mewtwo, who speaks in the Japanese version and doesn't say anything at all beyond [[VoiceGrunting grunts]] and other wordless vocalizations provided by the Japanese seiyuu in the English version).

** The Rotom Pokedex from the ''Sun and Moon'' 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.

** [[spoiler: Shockingly averted in ''Anime/PokemonIChooseYou'' as Ash was about to die, he asked Pikachu why he won't get in the Poke Ball. Pikachu replies with "It's because...it's because...I always want to be with you". Needless to say, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Magb0fxM4Q everyone who saw the movie was quite shocked to hear this]].]]

Added DiffLines:

** Note that this is {{Flanderization}}. Before ''Annihilation: Conquest'', Groot was incredibly verbose (think a ''slightly'' nicer Doctor Doom in tree-form). Starting with ''Conquest'', his vocabulary started dumbing down, until by the time of ''The Thanos Imperative'', "I am Groot" was all he could say.

* PlayedForLaughs when the LetsPlay/GameGrumps played ''VideoGame/SpeedRunners'', with Ross's impression of LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} (who's in the game as a GuestFighter) is just him saying "Markiplier!" over and over while approximating Mark's voice. When this is brought up during one of Mark's own ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' videos, he remarks "Apparently I'm a Pokémon."
