* Nobody's really sure if it was a troll or a spam bot or some poor sap with a bad translator, but a now-famous post from the 4chan imageboard consisted of "LOL at [[VideoGame/TheConduit the screenshot]]! [[MemeticMutation Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?"]] The thread was instantly derailed.

* The Engrish Eurobeat cover of TM Revolution's Hot Limit ([[WebAnimation/{{Animutation}} We Drink Ritalin]]). As with most English-language covers of J-Pop.

* The Engrish Eurobeat cover of TM Revolution's Hot Limit ([[WebAnimation/{{Animutation}} We Drink Ritalin]]). As with most English-language covers of J-Pop. The major problem here is that the songs are often translated (and often literally) from Japanese and then given to groups that can barely speak English to perform. In this case, the group John Desire were Italian and had a barely passable grasp on the English language.

* The ''[[VideoGame/{{Civilization}} Civilization V]]'' expansion ''Gods and Kings'' apparently suffered an unusual case of a train wreck translation. The leaders in the game generally speak in their native language or a modern day relative. The leader Attila of the Huns is supposed to speak the Chuvash language (one theory being that it's the nearest extant relative of Hunnic) but whoever did the translation into Chuvash clearly didn't speak the language fluently which resulted in nonsensical grammar. This is exasperated by the fact that the voice actor seems to be even more unfamiliar with the language, using very odd pacing and pronunciation. The fact he was supposed to be speaking Chuvash wasn't even obvious to Chuvash speakers and it took a bit of time for them to decipher the intended meaning behind his speech.

* Parodied on the Special Edition DVD release of ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', which has subtitle options in several languages, in addition to the fake-Swedish "møøse" subtitles during the opening credits (which cannot be turned off, as it would [[RuleOfFunny ruin the gag]]). One set of subtitles is labelled "Subtitles For People Who Don't Like The Film" and consists entirely of lines from Shakespeare's ''HenryIV, Part 2''. It's occasionally thematically related to what happens on-screen... sort of.
