* The 4Kids version of ''Manga/OnePiece'' gave Sanji a Brooklyn accent and Nico Robin a Southern accent. Quite a bit of the supporting characters also had strange, unexplained accents. The Creator/FUNimation version thankfully ignored all of this.

** According to one story, Christopher Lambert purposely made [=MacLeod=]'s accent muddy in the belief that someone who's been alive for centuries would have picked up bits of various different accents.

* Javik of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' has a Nigerian accent, although the other [[spoiler: Protheans we see in flashbacks]] have American accents. Possibly justified as the others are being translated but he's actually speaking English.

* Dexter of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' has a thick stereotypically Eastern European accent because of the connotations of Russians and Germans scientists, even though none of his family members do. And Dexter's mother is the only member of the family with a Minnesota accent.

* Pip in ''LuminousArc2'' has a sort of British accent for some unknown reason. No one else in the game does, including his twin sister Pop. Moose has a German accent, but he supposedly studied at a foreign university, so that may explain the accent.

* In the ''Anime/CodeGeass'' English dub, while no other Britannian has such an accent, Lloyd and to a lesser extent Schneizel speak with sort of [[FakeBrit campy British accents]]. Likely, it just might be the [[Creator/LiamOBrien voice]] [[TroyBaker actors]] [[LargeHam hamming it up]]. It should be noted, even though Britannia originated from Brittain, Brittannia's territory is mostly in America at the beginning of the series (the British isles having been lost to France long ago, before Britannia became a superpower, with the royal family relocating to to America), not in Europe/E.U.

** Even more mysteriously is Sieglinde Jeremiah from ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid''. She also speaks in Kansai dialect, but she doesn't even come from ''Earth'', she's from Mid-Childa. Although, it is said that Earth's culture has influenced Mid-Childan culture, but it is not known to which extent. Also, Sieglinde lives in the same city as Vivio and the rest, since she has to qualify in that city's tournament. Nobody from the city talks in Kansai dialect except Hayate.
