* ''VideoGame/FarCry3'''s Jason Brody is supposed to be a [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents [=SoCal=]]] kid from Los Angeles. His voice actor, Canadian Gianpaolo Venuta, utterly failed. People who have never visited America or Canada ''might'' be convinced...if they're deaf.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'''s habit of using generic dialogue for scenes where any character could be in the party has surreal results when Cyan slips out of his YeOldeButcheredeEnglish accent, WildChild Gau loses his HulkSpeak, and Umaro stops his usual [[TheUnintelligable gibberish howling]] to speak in totally normal sentences.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has this happen InUniverse when Reeve is identified as being Cait Sith when he begins talking in his natural accent (Kansai in the original, Southern in the English localisation), which he uses to voice Cait Sith, rather than the neutral accent the other Shinra members know him as having. Unfortunately, the game's inconsistent localisation meant Cait Sith loses his accent in many scenes...

* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' we have Gabranth. Played by the Scottish Michael E. Rodgers in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', Rodgers did a pretty good upper-class British accent for Gabranth in ''XII''. However for ''Dissidia'' he couldn't be reached so Square-Enix brought in TheOtherDarrin, American-born Keith Ferguson, who voiced Gabranth's brother Basch in ''XII''. Ferguson also doesn't do a bad job of making Gabranth sound British--he just can't seem to decide what ''kind'' of British to use, and quite often Gabranth slips from British into outright Cockney. This has inspired the MemeticMutation "HATRED IS WOT DROIVES ME!"
** Ferguson toned down the accent a bit for the prequel ''Dissidia 012''. The problem now is occasionally it's ''too'' toned down and he slips into NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent.

** Wakka's accent slips briefly (but noticeably) early into ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' on the line "A flier? My kind'o customer!"

* In ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero'', Joanna lacks her English accent from the original, at least partly due to the [[TheOtherDarrin change in voice actors]] from British to American, and maybe also because TheyJustDidntCare.

** In ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', you need to use a secret exit in Moxxi's bar to leave Concordia for the first time. When you open the secret passage, you find Moxxi doing mechanic work in overalls, singing happily to herself in her hillbilly accent. Again, she is extremely embarrassed and asks you not to tell anyone.

** It's worth noting that Vanille's VA, Georgia van Cuylenberg, who is originally from Melbourne, has been living in LA since 2005, so some kind of accent slip was probably inevitable

* [[StuntCasting Ed Ivory]] has a cameo as the Human Noble's tutor in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. The fact that the tutor is practically the only human in the entire [[DoomedHometown Highever Castle]] with a noticeable American accent. However, this may be more of a NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent than this trope.
