* Creator/GrantMorrison gave unique pseudo-tic catch phrases to several characters in his [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]] run (most of them were Gotham-based) including Batman: "hh", ComicBook/{{Huntress}}: "tt", and Commissioner Gordon: "ff". He even uses Damian Wayne's "tff" and "tt" as subtle cues that he really is Bruce's son.

* The interstellar [[InsistentTerminology freelance peacekeeping agent]] ''ComicBook/DeathsHead'', from several of Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}}'s UK comics, would often end his sentences with "Yes?" or, less commonly, "no?" or "huh?"

* The interstellar [[InsistentTerminology freelance peacekeeping agent]] ''ComicBook/DeathsHead'', from several of Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}}'s UK comics, would often end his sentences with "Yes?" or, less commonly, "no?" or "huh?""huh?", turning every statement into a question.



* Similarly, several Marvel monsters as seen in ''ComicBook/NickFury's HowlingCommandos'', including the Glob (who needs a special respirating device to speak and breathes with a deep "-SSSK-" a few times a sentence) and the Zombie, whose limited intelligence keeps him from completing a thought without stumbling through it with several uses of "Um..."
** And following ''that'' pattern, as Franchise/TheDCU's ComicBook/MetalMen began to develop more distinct and expressive personalities, DumbMuscle Lead couldn't complete a thought without interrupting it with "''Uhh...''" Tin's stammering may also count, and Mercury boasts about the fact that he's the only metal that's liquid at room temperature so often it might as well be one of these, too.

** This became a major plot point during the Cataclysm story arc - Robin revealed [[spoiler:the Quakemaster]] to actually be another of the Ventriloquist's puppets by daring him to say his name, since he had been carefully avoiding words with B in them. Unfortunately, in his first appearance, [[spoiler:Quakemaster]] correctly pronounces the word "Burn".

* [[Franchise/SpiderMan Mary Jane]] has a tendency to refer to people (especially Peter but he's not the only one) as "Tiger" (or in Gwen's case "Tigeress").

* Another ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' example is Batman's own son Damian, who tends to insert a "ttt" whenever he's annoyed or about to curse. This carries over into almost all of his appearances since, including the LighterAndSofter ''[[ComicBook/GothamAcademy Gotham Academy]]''.

* Bug, of ''Franchise/{{Micronauts}}'', ''Annihilation: Conquest'' and --*Tik!*-- ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' takes this to its logical extremes, as his tic is that his speech is randomly interrupted by "TIK", a side effect of his speaking difficulties.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s air characters have a habit of running pairs of words together, often [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment redundantly]] ("Toa-heroes" has come up more than once). There are exceptions, since this is apparently a slang that's only common in Metru Nui.

* [[Characters/XMenOtherTeams Blindfold]] of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' is... hard to describe. As she's having a conversation with you, she sounds like she's giving yes-or-no answers to someone just offscreen.

* In Arthur Suydam's "Mudwogs", the monster loves to say "Roop Doop Doop". If that's a reference, it's [[http://www.fresnostate.edu/folklore/ballads/R448.html extremely obscure.]]
