Added DiffLines:

** Aria's intonation during her famous establishing scene: "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Don't]]. ''[[PrecisionFStrike Fuck]]''. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis With Aria]]." It was a clearly over-the-top method of setting up a ForcedMeme that actually worked, launching Aria to EnsembleDarkhorse status.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] don't [[BreathWeapon breathe fire]] so much as [[RealityWarper wish it into existence]] with the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]]. Whichever smart-ass wrote the loading screen dialogs took this fact to the conclusion that when two dragons fight, they're really having an intense verbal debate.
** Paarthurnax does pretty much confirm this in game when after he teaches you a word for fire breath he tells you to use it on him, and once that is done he states "It has been so long since I talked to another in my own language" (Paraphrased) confirming they talk like that most of the time. The normal day to day life of a dragon would be the most awesome thing ever.
** So does that make this an inversion? Awesome Made Mundane?
** The "Throw Voice" shout definitely qualifies. The Dragonborn uses the Thu'um to distract foes, causing a goofy, high-pitched voice to begin hurling insults at them from an unknown source. Unless this Shout was created by the Dragon Priests, one has to wonder what situation would lead a Dragon to ''ever'' feel the need to hurl the insult, "Hey, Skeever Butt!" at someone?

[[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] Dragons]], for whom their LanguageOfMagic is so intrinsic, don't [[BreathWeapon breathe fire]] so much as [[RealityWarper wish it command fire into existence]] with using the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]]. Whichever smart-ass wrote One of the ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' loading screen dialogs screens took this fact to the conclusion that when two dragons fight, they're really having an intense verbal debate.
** Paarthurnax does pretty much confirm
''verbal debate''. Essentially, they [[InvertedTrope Invert]] the trope, making it Awesome Made Mundane. Paarthurnax, a [[HeelFaceTurn friendly]] dragon, essentially confirms this in game when in-game when, after he teaches you a word for fire breath he tells [[PlayingWithFire Fire Breath]], asks you to use it on him, and once that is done he states "It has been so long since I talked to another in my own language" (Paraphrased) confirming they talk like that most of the time. The normal day to day life of a dragon would be the most awesome thing ever.

(Paraphrased).
** The "Throw Voice" shout definitely qualifies.in ''Skyrim'' plays it straight.. The Dragonborn uses the Thu'um to distract foes, causing a goofy, high-pitched voice to begin hurling insults at them from an unknown source. Unless this Shout was created by the [[ReligionOfEvil Dragon Priests, Priests]], one has to wonder what situation would lead a Dragon to ''ever'' feel the need to hurl the insult, "Hey, Skeever [[RodentsOfUnusualSize Skeever]] Butt!" at someone?

** The very courtroom is geared to a legal battle of wits, with the defense attorney and the prosecutor facing each other and the witness standing in the middle, [[TruthInTelevision which is actually the standard layout for]] RealLife [[TruthInTelevision Japanese [[http://www.courts.go.jp/english/l2/l3/vcms_images/Vcms3_00000215/vc8_h4-text-img-text/20160328170634/s_5_vc8_h4-text-img-text_vc8_h4-text-img-text-03_1_vc8_img-01.jpg courtrooms]]. Not as much spiky hair and whip-swinging but close enough.
