* A radio advert had a tourist going into a travel agency in Hong Kong and trying to arrange a complicated flight while the agent just kept saying, "Yes...Yes...Yes..." in response to this trope. At the end it's obvious the agent hasn't understood a word. Unless you went to the advertised travel agency of course, where all their travel planners spoke fluent English.

* Sonic speaks in this way in ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' the first time he tries to communicate with Yacker. ("WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOUR PEOPLE?") There is a bit of FridgeBrilliance in it, though - his words are being translated into Yacker's language by Tails's computer, so he's speaking slowly and clearly so the ''computer'' can understand him, not so Yacker can. After that, he just speaks normally when talking to Yacker or the Wisps (or "aliens" as he prefers to call them).
