* Creator/{{SNK}}'s ArcadeGame ''Athena'' had a [[http://flyers.arcade-museum.com/flyers_video/snk/14487602.jpg flyer]] with both Japanese and English text. The one complicated sentence was garbled into English as: "Knock down Cat's paw of Monarch Dante with weapons appearing one after another."

Corrected fractured English
* ''TabletopGame/{{Vampire The Masquerade}}'' has, among many others, the infamous Palla Grande, a Sabbat ceremony, they intended "Great Ball" in the sense of a great and formal dance event, and tried to translate it in Italian (to put it an english manual), but instead of "Ballo", the Italian world for a dance event they took "Palla" the Italian world for a spherical object (the other meaning of the world "ball")

* In a Japanese edition of ''SukebanDeka: Codename = Asamiya Saki'' (otherwise known in the West as ''Yo-Yo Girl Cop'') the English subtitles seem to have been generated by attempting to translate the individual words directly into English, including the names. The seemingly meaningless phrase "of temple" keeps recurring in the dialogue -- as a translation of Asamiya, the heroine's family name.

* "How are you gentlemen!! [[MemeticMutation All your base are belong to us]]." ''ZeroWing'' was revived from obscurity by its incredibly {{Engrish}}y intro {{cutscene}} (which can be seen on the game's page), creating some persistent gaming catchphrases and still benefiting form the WatchItForTheMeme effect.
