* Castiel from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': he rarely uses contractions, has a formal way of talking ([[MemeticMutation "I'm the one who gripped you tight and raised you from perdition"]]), and doesn't get pop culture or human jokes. Understandable, since he's an angel who hasn't walked among humans for two thousand years.

Added DiffLines:

** Earth-2 Wells is noticeably more casual about his language, and is shown (in flashbacks) to be much more personable than his Earth-1 counterpart. His daughter, also a super-genius, uses standard idiomatic American English.

* ''FalloutEquestria'': Xenith the zebra uses little to no contraptions in her speech and usually talks in a more sophisticated manner than her comrades.

* [[Wikipedia]]. They are frustratingly strict about this. This leads to magnificent academic pages, but when it comes to slang, Wikipedia's "Verifiability, Not Truth" policy very much fails.

* The ''ComicBook/XMen''[='s=] ComicBook/{{Storm}}, as well as {{Magneto}} and Colossus (and many other minor characters) as written by Creator/ChrisClaremont. Storm always speaks this way, even in other-media adaptations, though she doesn't in [[Film/XMen the live action movies]].

* Also exhibited by Cameron and Chromartie on ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''. It may shed some light on this, showing Terminators -- sometimes even ''the same'' Terminator -- doing both. It appears to be a simple matter of whether or not the Terminator in question considers convincing acting to be relevant to the mission at hand. In particular, those that go back in time wouldn't have to worry about being outed as killer robots except in extreme circumstances.

** An amusing behind the scenes outtake from the second game's Behind the Scenes video gives us this:
-->'''David Kaye (as Clank)''': This's bad!"
-->'''Dialogue Director (from off-screen)''': Clank doesn't speak with contractions.
-->'''David Kaye''': [[PrecisionFStrike F***!]]

Added DiffLines:

* Dr. Max Bergman of ''Series/HawaiiFive0'' speaks with a markedly clipped tone. While his level of formality does seem to have diminished slightly over the series as he warmed up to Steve and Danny, he's still very precise in his language. This is probably partly due to being a medical examiner, where precision is imperative, and partly due to having an AmbiguousDisorder.

** T-800 in ''Terminator 2'' and ''3'', quite surprising for being an early '90s robot; notice, however, that as he starts spending time with John Connor, he also starts picking up American mannerisms. In the extended version of ''T2'' he only starts mimicking John after his learning chip is set from Read to Read/Write. Seems [=SkyNet=] doesn't want its cyborgs thinking for themselves and sets the chip this way when they leave the factory.
