* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' introduces Necalli, who displays this in his dialogue. Considering his design and his name suggest that he's from an ancient civilization (possibly Aztec in origin), this habit could be explained as him trying to adapt to modern language.

-->'''Necalli:''' ''(After defeating Ken)'' Give u...up. I'll dr...drink your flames.

* In the JohnWayne film ''TheCowboys'', one of the boys on the cattle drive wasn't able to warn them of danger due to a stuttering problem. Wil Anderson (Wayne's character) proceeds to give him a brutal tongue-lashing, and the boy stutteringly calls Anderson a "s-s-s-s-s-son-uh-uh-uh-of-a-buh-buh-bitch". Anderson then continues to antagonize the boy until the youth explodes into a verbal tirade of completely stutter-free profanity. Anderson then calmly congratulates him on getting over his stutter, and warns the boy to not get used to cursing at him like that. The boy never stutters once for the rest of the film.
