* [[GentleGiant Sweden]] from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' often becomes this in FanWorks, after an [[AccentAdaptation attempt at localizing]] his TohokuRegionalAccent[[note]]Which, in Japanese, is perfectly understandable, if a bit unusual[[/note]] in [[{{Scanlation}} scanlations]] gave him truncated words and occasionally missing vowels. And after {{Flanderization}}, Sweden's often shown sp'k'ng l'k' th's.

Strangely enough, most of the Nordics speak in similar dialects (Tsugaru for Norway and Iceland, and Ibaraki for Denmark), but none of them get the same treatment in scanlations or in fanon.

* Sweden from ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' speaks in a rather thick accent (Tohoku accent in the original Japanese, which translated into English is a sort of grunt speak), so sometimes readers have difficulty following his pattern of speech. Strangely when it shows him thinking, his thoughts are perfectly comprehensible.

* Lum's Mother from ''UruseiYatsura'', due to her lack of knowing Japanese, speaks in her native language, which humans can only interpret as gibberish (shown quite clearly in the manga, using various symbols in place of text). Naturally, Lum and other aliens don't have trouble understanding.

* Daikichi Komusubi from ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' communicates mainly through grunts and short sentences. It's said he speaks in ''pawa-go'' ("Powerspeak"), which only strong men, like his "sensei" Kurita, can understand (though oddly enough, Mamori seems able to understand him as well).

* The Minicons in ''TransformersArmada'' speak in beeps. Towards the end of the series, they start actually talking. It's not clear how that works.

* Ryo-Ohki, the WeaselMascot in ''TenchiMuyo'' can only say "Miyaa," but is clearly an intelligent being capable of communicating complex ideas to the people around her. This is mainly due to the fact she is still very young. In ''TenchiMuyoGXP'' however, she is fully capable of speaking clearly. (Also TheVoiceless)

* Similarly, Mone-chan in ''{{Yumeria}}'' only says "Mone" or parts thereof. (It is unknown whether or not "Mone" is her real name; it was (unsurprisingly) the only thing she said when asked what her name was.)

* Keyop in BattleOfThePlanets. He had lines in ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''. One fan rumour had it that he used too much profanity for the US networks. Probably not true though.

* Likewise Mokona from ''MagicKnightRayearth'' can only say "Puu." While he may not seem to act like it and is accorded little respect, Mokona is arguably more intelligent than anyone else in the cast -- but the details are a spoiler of monumental proportions. (Also TheVoiceless)
