* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Nemesis", Chakotay is shot down in the middle of a war zone, and is aided by the human-looking Defenders who speak in a [Creator/GeoffreyChaucer Chaucer]]-like dialogue evoking heroic fantasies in their fight against the AlwaysChaoticEvil Kradin. TheReveal is that Chakotay has been captured and is undergoing propaganda brainwashing to turn him into a Defender. Whether the Defenders dialogue is due to translation issues or [[HeroicArchetype something to do with the process]] is not revealed, but Chakotay is [[GoingNative shown talking the same way as the brainwashing takes effect]].

* ''Gold and Silver'' also has Earl, teacher at the Pokemon School, who speaks in a manner similar to [[Franchise/StarWars Yoda]]. For example, when you first meet him, he asks you "Hello! You are trainer? Battle Gym Leader, win you did?"

** In the prequels, [[TheScrappy Jar Jar Binks]], and to a lesser extent the other Gungans, speaks a pidgin Galactic Basic that involves [[HulkSpeak dropping articles such as "the" and using "me" in place of "I"]] and adding random syllables to otherwise standard words ("meesa" instead of "I am", "looky" to mean "look", etc.). As the Gungans were widely interpreted as {{expies}} of people of recent African descent or indigenous peoples in general, this was rife with UnfortunateImplications.
