* Kenshin Himura in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' makes a habit of speaking in archaically formal Japanese, using the "de gozaru" verb form (he's using it wrong, however). This gets translated into English - the anime anyway - [[PragmaticAdaptation as a rather awkward, repetitive, countrified emphasis in sentence construction]], such as "It would not be wise of you to attempt this, that it would not." He ''also'' uses the very old and [[JapanesePronouns archaic personal pronoun]] 'sessha', which was generally used by the samurai up until about the time Kenshin lived, but is nearly unheard of anymore. Translating it into "this one", as the Viz manga did, is actually about right; it's very formal. It wouldn't have been ''terribly'' odd to hear someone use it in the time period that ''Anime/RurouniKenshin'' is set in, but it's very odd and distinctive today.

** ''Anime/PokemonIChooseYou:'' [[spoiler: Pikachu says "because" as "Pi-cause."]] While he has only a single line of dialogue, it's enough that the [[{{Fanon}} fandom]] thinks he would have a verbal tick of replacing parts of other words with part of his name in the same manner, should he ever speak again.

* Many of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]] in ''Anime/SailorMoon'' do this, adding their name or part of it to the end of sentences. (Actually, the monsters that don't do this are generally [[PokemonSpeak only capable of saying their own name]], period.)

** The sequel series, ''Ryuusei no Rockman'' (''MegaManStarForce'') has a few more of these. The most outstanding is Cancer Bubble's "~buku" dialect. Since Cancer Bubble has the same theme and basic role (inept comic relief villain) as Bubbleman from the original, this might be him actually taking after Bubbleman, puku.
