* Amy on ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has a ValleyGirl accent, despite being from Mars and living in New New York. Her parents have heavy Chinese accents, which is theoretically [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since they're at least ethnically Chinese.

** Butters has a Southern accent ([[TokenWholesome to make him seem more "wholesome"]]), though neither of his parents share it. During his cross-dressing escapade, he's introduced as a girl from Texas. Mr. Mackey has a southern accent too. Cartman was always supposed to have a heavy breathing fat person accent, but since he cosplayed Robert E. Lee he's had Southern touches that play up when he cosplays a CorruptHick: "Respect my Authori-TAH!"

* King Leonidas of ''Film/{{300}}'' has a strong Scottish accent. It's long been a convention amongst English translators of Ancient Greek plays to translate the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Spartans]] as sounding Scottish ([[ViolentGlaswegian similar stereotypes]]), but ''only and specifically Leonidas'' sounds like this. [[Film/300RiseOfAnEmpire The sequel]] gets even weirder, because ''its'' main character Themistocles sounds ''Australian''. Everyone else is pure [[TheQueensLatin Queen's Ancient Greek]].

* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' has Magnus's Australian accent, Leman Russ's Scottish accent [[note]Both of these were done due to their [=VA=]s inability to do the right accent]], Vulkan's Jamaican [[spoiler: and Ork Cockney]] accent, and Little Kitten's British accent. Vulkan is worse (and funnier) because he never had it until a certain point.
