* Roose Bolton in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is a clean-shaven SoftSpokenSadist speaking RP in a sea of [[BadassBeard bearded]] LargeHam [[OopNorth northmen with northern accents]], which sets him apart from all the other Stark bannermen. (This was presumably a deliberate choice, as the actor Michael [=McElhatton=] is Irish.)

** Ramsay Bolton's way of speaking he uses a lot of "big words" and sophisticated speech, although the cadence is weird and the words are oddly knocked together. It's not the actor's normal accent, either. This all gives the impression that he's trying to sound smarter and more educated than he really is so as to disguise his lowborn roots.

* In ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang'' webseries arc "A Gooey-ful Mind", Egghead gains this accent when he becomes super-smart after an electric shock, and loses it when he's brought back to normal.

** Deliberately inverted in an episode showing what it would be like if the Griffins were British. All members of the family have British accents, except for Stewie... who sounds like an American hillbilly.

* Arguably, Stewie from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. There's some controversy as to whether his accent is supposed to be British or Bostonian Brahmin (e.g., Charles Emerson Winchester III from ''Series/{{Mash}}'', Thurston Howell III from ''GilligansIsland'').

* ''Ben10AlienForce'' sees Ben's voice and mannerisms change slightly with each of his transformations. To the surprise of no one, when he becomes the huge-brained Brainstorm, he spontaneously develops a thick, English accent.
