* The character of Hissing Sid in the "Captain Beaky" songs written by Jeremey Lloyd and Jim Parker and sung by Keith Michell. Sid (a snake) does not speak in the original, but he does in some of the sequels, and does so (as his name implies) with a distinct hiss.

* Orochimaru of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' does this occasionally in the manga. Given [[{{Orochi}} the inspiration for his character]], it fits. It doesn't seem to happen as often in the [[{{Kujira}} Japanese]] or [[SteveBlum English]] TV series; instead, the voice actors compensate by making his voice very raspy and feminine-sounding.

* Used believably in the ''Literature/{{Destroyermen}}'' series. Though they have their own language, the Grik [[AliensSpeakingEnglish use written and spoken English]] as the “scientific tongue,” thanks to the capture of a British East India Company ship that came to the [=altEarth=] in the 1700s. Other Grik-like peoples, such as the Tagranesi and Khonashi tribes who ally with the Lemurians and the US Navy, also start learning English. However, as they are all reptiles descended from Cretaceous-Period raptors, they are unable to pronounce any letter whose sound requires lips, and sometimes try to substitute with “F” or “S”. Other times, they will use grammatically-incorrect-but-pronounceable word substitutions, like “I” for “me” or “us” for “we.”

* One of the Flame King's would-be assassins talks like this in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTIme''. Finn and Jake confront a chef when they hear him hissing the same way, only to discover he wasn't - an actual snake that had fallen on Jake's head was making the noise.

* The ''{{WesternAnimation/Rango}}'' fic ''Fanfic/OldWest'' has several snakes as prominent characters, including the canonical Rattlesnake Jake, but they all avert this trope by speaking like the other Western characters. However, Grace Glossy does refer to [[Disney/TheJungleBook Kaa]] -- or more accurately, [[Film/JungleBook2016 the female Kaa]] who's voiced by the author's choice for Grace's notional voice actress, Creator/ScarlettJohansson -- by asking Jake to "trusssssst in her".
