* A character in the {{Redwall}} book ''Taggerung'' has a stutter, until he learns to overcome it, mainly due to the fact that he doesn't stutter when he's singing.
* In the ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series, Mym (who later takes over as War) has a stutter when speaking and therefore sings in order to avoid it.

* Copy X MK-II in ''VideoGame/MegaManZero 3'' occasionally stuttered as a way of showing his continued imperfection. In the Japanese version, he randomly alternated between hiragana and katakana.
** Though it wasn't so much being imperfect as it was that he [[spoiler:CameBackWrong, due to the fact that [[OmnicidalManiac Dr. Weil]] intended him to be a total pawn, so he only made a partial rebuild of Copy X and then waited for Zero to fight and kill him, thus Weil become a DragonAscendant immediately afterwards.]]

* Sakura Kyouko of Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica has a slight lisp.
* In ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', Tsuruya's CuteLittleFang gives her a small impediment that causes her to occasionally mispronounce words. Fans also speculate that this is where her "[[MemeticMutation Nyoron~]]" comes from.

* Most characters in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' have some sort of odd quirk to their typing styles to also illustrate how they speak. Sollux, for instance, always uses the number 2 instead of the letter S - and has a lisp.
** Sollux has since dropped the lisp after Karkat (accidentally) knocked his fangs out. He's not too broken up about this, since he can now speak normally.

** In G3, nearly everyone had a CatchPhrase, and some of the {{Catch Phrase}}s could border on Tourette's-level with how frequently they were used. Most noticeably, Thistle Whistle couldn't talk without randomly stopping to make whistling noises. She was the most temperamental of the pegasus team, but it ''really'' costs you badass points to interrupt a snide comment with whistling.
** The current series has Twist's lisp (exaggerated in fandom to the point that she's nearly TheUnintelligible, but still pretty bad in the show.) Fleetfoot, the Wonderbolt, also has one. Not nearly as bad, but noticeable, and you can even hear her trying ''not'' to do it by overemphasizing S sounds to get them right. For example, "Soarin,' pick up the pace!" becomes "'''SSS'''oarin,' pick up the pathe!" Definitely not a quirk of the actress, because none of AndreaLibman's other characters do it.
* When Morocco Mole loses his front gold tooth in the ''Super Secret SecretSquirrel'' episode "Goldflipper," he's left with a glaring lisp that Secret lampshades, to Morocco's irritation.

If you pay attention, in the earliest episodes of ''Series/TheXFiles'' it occasionally [[OohMeAccentsSlipping slips]] a bit, especially when she tries to say 'garage'.

* [[ShrinkingViolet Hyuuga Hinata]] from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has a rather pronounced stutter, trips over her own words, and says "Ano/Um" a lot more than necessary when speaking. Probably the fault of her abusive upbringing. It's taken UpToEleven in some fanfics that have her stutter on every syllable. She [[CharacterDevelopment bets better]] over time and by the time she is an adult she's lost her ShrinkingViolet tendencies abd her stutter.

* Early {{fanon}} from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' gave [[FanNickname Derpy Hooves]] (also known as "Ditzy Doo", "Bright Eyes", or "Bubbles") a speech impediment however to just what degree [[DependingOnTheWriter varied]]. It could range from a noticeable stutter to a speech disorder where she spoke incomprehensibly. Over time the portrayal died out in preference for her being TheDitz instead of InspirationallyDisadvantaged, though her referring to her {{fanon}} daughter as "muffin" is a remnant of the old fanon.

* After CharacterizationMarchesOn, Dartz from ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' ends up suffering from a pretty bad case of ElmuhFuddSyndwome, to the point where he constantly mispronounces his words a lot in which they come out as sexual slang (such as saying "Do" when he really meant "Duel"). His bizarre accent doesn't really make it easier for him (or anybody else for that matter).
