Added DiffLines:

* [[Literature/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau Dr. Moreau]]'s hybrid monsters in the second volume of ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' are shown to have a tenuous grasp of grammar at best. In particular, H-9 (a more ferocious take on ComicStrip/RupertBear) says things like "You not to talk" and "You come with us, see master".

** The {{Diniverse}} version of Solomon Grundy (who at first glance seems a CaptainErsatz of the Hulk, complete with "Grundy crush!" replacing "Hulk smash!") talks in Hulk-speak but is capable of full sentences.

** In the JusticeLeagueUnlimited episode "The Great Brain Robbery", Bizarro is the only member of the Legion to figure out that the guy claiming to be Lex Luthor wasn't Lex Luthor. However, telling everyone... that's a different story.

* Played straight in YTheLastMan: Natalya Zamyatin is a Russian secret agent whose English is described as being "beyond broken", making her sound somewhat stupid. However, whenever she has a chance to speak in Russian, she waxes loquacious. While not explicitly {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d, she is well aware of the overall effect.

* Subverted in the post-Zero Hour ''Comicbook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' with [[ShapeShifter Chameleon]], who starts out speaking none of the language the other characters use, and spends quite a while gradually learning the language and speaking it very brokenly... right up until [[WhamEpisode the payoff]] of an {{Arc}} which [[TheReveal reveals]], among other things, that he's been perfectly fluent for quite a while and was simply [[ObfuscatingStupidity concealing it]] so that nobody would suspect him of impersonating certain key figures.

* Yondu Udonta, of {{Marvel|Comics}}'s sadly-defunct ''[[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avengers]]'' spinoff ''GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', originally spoke like this. However, as of when the Guardians got their own series, he'd become quite articulate... even as he [[CharacterDevelopment became more of a believable alien tribal shaman]] and less of a NobleSavage in blue body paint.

* Corollary: [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Starfire]] of DCComics can leap over the whole hurdle of communication by kissing someone to learn their language. Any brief physical contact will do, but kissing is the method she prefers.
