* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'': 'Snuggly' the crow squawks: "You, you! Give me, warm! Give me, soft!" - "No, no. That, no. That no warm, that no soft."

'Snuggly' the crow squawks: "You, you! Give me, warm! Give me, soft!" - "No, no. That, no. That no warm, that no soft."" The various invisible trading crows in later games speak similarly.
** The Giant Blacksmith combines this with YeOldeButcheredEnglish, creating a rather unique style of speech. "Cometh soon!" "I hath shiny-shiny!"

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** [[spoiler:Machi Tobaye]] from ''Apollo Justice'': justified in that his knowledge of English is rudimentary. Him not speaking English prior to Apollo proving he knew it in court was probably equally because parsing it was inconvenient.
** Played straight with [[FunnyForeigner Zinc Lablanc]] from ''Investigations''.
--->'''Lablanc:''' Ah, you are pulling the sheep over our eyes.
** Averted with the entire population of Khura'in in ''Spirit of Justice''. They all speak English rather fluently, despite being a foreign nation which still actively uses its own cultural language and writing system.

* ''VideoGame/ThereIsNoGame'' is mainly in proper syntax, but sometimes falls into this.
--> "No reason to use that icon as you were on the point of leaving...don't you?
--> "You're thinking about how to lift that big box, don't you?"
--> "How can I become a sales success with all that glitches?"

* In an online game called ''Dora Care Baby Bears'' about ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' looking after bears, the instructions are written like this. They even call pacifiers ''children's nipples''.
--> "Now we towelled the bear dry"
--> "Dusted talcum powder would feeling dry and smooth"
--> (when they're hungry) "My stomach cries cupboard"
--> "I am feel itchy on my back. Please help my scratch!"
--> "Now use shower washed the soap off"

* ''VideoGame/Bioshock'': Dr. Suchong speaks this way, including referring to himself in the third person (Chinese languages tend to lack articles, but this is not a typical result in new English speakers). Dr. Tenenbaum, in contrast, has a Russian accent but her grammar is perfectly fine.

** The vorcha usually speak this way. They're the only species met so far to do so. This is justified in that their average lifespan is twenty years, if they're lucky: such short lives leave little time for them to become well-educated. Shepard does meet one or two well-spoken vorcha throughout the game, and even those that don't have a great grasp of Basic are not necessarily stupid, as seen by the vorcha soldier speaking to a human soldier in the third game's ''Citadel'' DLC, who displays an impressive understanding of tactics and multiplayer mechanics.

** Also, the passive voice is spoken in by Emps in ''UltimaVII''.
** In ''{{Ultima Underworld}}'', The Stygian Abyss, the goblins are a perfect example for this (especially the Green Goblins except for their king). Try to trade with one of them and make an offer he rejects. The answer: "No, I no like!"

** In the [[{{Woolseyism}} English localization]], that is. In the original Japanese, ''Grego'' ([[DubNameChange as he's known there]]) speaks in a somewhat rough-and-tumble manner befitting a globetrotting mercenary {{Oyaji}}, but is perfectly fluent in whatever the world's language is.
