Probably Needs a Better Title.

Person A and Person B are siblings. There's just one thing that seems off. Person A has an American accent, while Person B has a British one.

This trope happens when one or more immediate family members have different accents. This might be explained by saying that a character has studied abroad and acquired a different accent than the rest of their family. But this likely happened due to casting. In that case, the fact that the character has a different accent from the rest of their family is completely ignored in-universe.
