* Perennial ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' villain The Super-Skrull talks like this, like most of his race we've seen so far. In an issue of YoungAvengers, his lack of contractions even used to [[GlamourFailure identify him posing as another character.]]

* Double subversion: ''SummonNight: Swordcraft Story 2'' features a robot who initially talks in Spock Speak... but when the main character asks him to speak in a more understandable way, the robot starts using TotallyRadical slang. He later goes back to Spock Speak, much to the relief of both the main character and the player.

* ''[[Literature/TheLordsOfCreation In the Courts of the Crimson Kings]]'', a sci-fi novel by SMStirling. The Martian language can convey a lot of information simply, but sounds formal when translated into English. Thus ''Your pleasantly agreeable personality contrasts in an intriguing manner with the brutish power of your appearance'' is actually ''You look macho but you're actually sweet and gentle''.

* Pople who speak English as a second language may usually avoid contractions because it is easier for them to speak this way.

* ''MechWarrior'' 2: 32nd Century Combat, seems to take this trope UpToEleven. The clans avoid contractions to the point where one Loremaster from the Inner Sphere was shunned by select members of society by using them.

* Perceptor speaks like this in the {{Marvel}} ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformers Transformers Generation 1]]'' comic, so much so that other character have trouble understanding him. Shockwave too, but to a lesser extent.
