* Octopus Man from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty''. He's onscreen for a grand total of about 90 seconds, and about two thirds of those seconds involve him giggling.

* An episode of FatherTed has a character who laughs so constantly he can never finish a sentence. We meet him recounting an anecdote to a travelling companion about himself and Ted (which turns out to simply be an unremarkable case of someone losing his slippers). Ted asks the companion how long their car journey was together, and the poor man tells him it was four hours with a look of shellshock on his face.

*Trusty Patches\Patches the Hyena from ''videogame/darksouls'' laughs after every line of dialogue [[spoiler:probably because he finds the idea of kicking you down a pit to kill you and take your stuff really funny]]

* Ed from ''Disney/TheLionKing'', who is a literal Hyena, and whose entire dialogue consists of insane laughter, which [[IntelligibleUnintelligible only Shenzi and Banzi are able to understand]]. The others laugh pretty often too. Goes straight into horror when [[spoiler:the other hyenas ask him about his opinion of Scar calling them "friends" shortly after denouncing them to Simba, and his only reaction is a EvilLaugh and lick his lips just before they all maul and devour Scar.]]

* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'': Ripper Roo, after being experimented on by Neo Cortex becomes literally LaughingMad; all of his dialogue from that point on [[TheUnintelligible consists of insane laughter with subtitles]]. Fittingly enough, his "dialogue" is taken from the Hyena of Disney's Lady and The Tramp, with his laughter being a slightly mixed version.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** Iggy Koopa has been this ever since his return in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii''. Most noticeable in ''[[VideoGame/MarioKart Mario Kart 8]]'', where practically every vocalization of his is laughter.
** Wario and Waluigi are milder examples, being very prone to laughing when things are going their way. Perhaps best exemplified by one of the former's victory poses in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', which consists of him rolling on the floor laughing his head off.

* Dutch celebrities Gerard Joling and Gordon, especially as portrayed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-BmsADmYM0 here.]]
* Laughing hyenas really do make a sound that's eerily similar to human laughter. [[UncannyValley It's one of the main reasons they're so creepy]]. Hyenas make that "laughing" sound when they're stressed.

* Waji in ''[[Anime/JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu Haré+Guu]]'', has a rather creepy hyena like laugh. Apparently he believes laughing makes your worries go away. He was even compared to a hyena once. Interestingly there are a few hints he has a troubled home life, like being found in the middle of the night in the jungle, crying to himself.

* As [[http://www.marketplace.org/topics/business/big-book/how-amazon-went-book-seller-retail-giant recounted]] on {{NPR}}'s Marketplace, the laugh of Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos precedes him down the hall of the corporate headquarters and is well known to everyone who works there. It's also apparently considered a ''punishment'' to some employees.
