* [[VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}} Hagakure]] ends a few of his sentences with "-be". This has been translated by the thread as "'right" (which is as close to the connotations of "be" in a Tohoku dialect that one can get with a single English word). Monobear/Monokuma's "upupupu" could possibly also count as one, to a lesser extent.

** Rena Ryuuguu has a habit of repeating the final words of sentences, most famously ''kana, kana'' (I wonder, I wonder). More to the point, "kana kana" is supposed to be the sound higurashi cicada make.

At one point Keiichi directly tells her "Stop 'hau'-ing, already!"

* In the Perpetual Testing Initiative of ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', it turns out one alternate universe Cave Johnson is an extremely nice guy who randomly says "Chariots" at the end of his sentences. This is much to the annoyance of Cave Prime, who had chosen that word as the sign that you're talking to him and not any alternate Caves.

** Det. Gumshoe ends most of his sentences with "Pal" when he's addressing someone, Pal. In the Japanese version he slurs the end of his sentences. He doesn't like it when someone tries to copy his verbal tic:

* ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'' is full of such characters: Nayuki ("nyuu"), Makoto ("auu"), and Ayu ("uguu"), to the point of being overdone. It adds tremendously to the [[MoeMoe moe factor]] of the girls though, especially in Ayu's case - it's just ''so'' darn cute, which it is also helped by the marvelous performance of Creator/YuiHorie, Ayu's voice actress.
