Forrr added emphasis in yourrr worrrds, speak with rrrolling R's to show yourrr contrrrol overrr yourrr dominion.

Usually the [[EvilIsHammy Hammy]] [[EvilOverlord Evil Overlorrrd]] will constantly rrroll his tongue. Forrreign People will also speak like this. In some cases justified, as in severrral languages / dialects the R is always prrronounced like this ([[FakeRussian Rrrussian]], Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Afrrrrikaans, Finnish, some Gerrrman and [[VampireVords Trrransylvanian]] dialects, and Scots), otherrr than in English. Also frrrequently employed when the speakerrr is rrrelated to felines in some way, imitating a cat's purrrring.

In UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}, it's a marrrkerrr of being rrreeeaaalllyyy angrrrrrry orrr intentionally rrrruude, orrrr of being a JapaneseDelinquent such as a bosozoku or yankii, orrrr someone trrrying to imitate one.

Not to be confused with [[TalkLikeAPirate the way pirrrates constantly say "Arr!"]]. Compare SssssnakeTalk.


* "Rrrruffles have rrridges". You prrrobably have to be of a certain age to rrrremember that ad campaign.
* The Tim Horrrton's Donut/Coffee shop in Canada occasionaly has a contest called "Rrrrolll up the rrrim to win." Bonus points for those who can rrroll the R's.

* There was a great Taco Bell commercial where these two lions were talking about the latest roast beef burrito. The one said to the other, "No, say it like Ricardo Montalban." So the other lion says, "Okay. Carrrrne asada." It was funny.
* There's a Zaxby's commercial in which two ladies are engaging in increasingly over-the-top trilling in an effort to outdo one another. It culminates in "Have you met my friend, [=RrrrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrRR=]... Ricardo?" [[note]]His name is Jim[[/note]]

** To the point that the protagonists eventually [[BriefAccentImitation mock their pronunciation.]]
* One of Happy's catchphrases in the Japanese version of the ''Manga/FairyTail'' anime: "De dekiteirrrru!" (literally, "I can see it how it is (there is love in the air)"). The manga and the English dub avert it, translating this catchphrase as "[[ShipperOnDeck S/He liiiiikes you.]]"
** It's not just Happy- whenever someone else (mostly Virgo) decides to ship two characters, they say the same thing, trilling included.
* Germany from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has a tendency to trill his r's, especially when he's singing.
** In the English dub, all the Italy family is prone, but the best is definitely Creator/IanSinclair as Romano, the hammy incarnation of Southern Italy.

* Onsokumaru from ''Manga/NininGaShinobuden'' usually tacks these in his lines - as if he wasn't [[LargeHam hammy]] enough.
* The ''massively'' [[LargeHam hammy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V1AEvN8VZs introduction]] of DemonKingNobunaga, from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''. (It helps that he's voiced by Creator/NorioWakamoto).
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' gives us "RRRUUUUURRRRUUUSSSHHUUU!!".
** Not to forget the empire's motto "All hail Buuurrrrrritaaaaniaaaa!" which packs so much [[LargeHam ham]], you can find the whole pig in there.
* A fairly mild example pops up a couple times in ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'' to rrrreflect the Porrrtugese language influence in the setting.
* ''Anime/UtaNoPrinceSama'' gives us the [[LargeHam GIGANTIKKU HYAMMU]] Prrrincipal 'Shining' Saotome who not only rrrolls his Rrrs but also strrrrrrrrrretches them to rrrrrrridiculous extrrrrremes and mixes it all up with a heavy dose of [[GratuitousEnglish grrrrrrrratuitous]] [[{{Engrish}} ENGURRRRRRRRRRISSHU]].
* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency'': Rudolf von Stroheim says "Bakamono ga" (You utter fool) by inserting lots of R's in between, turning it into "'''BRRRRRRRRRAKAMONO GA!!!'''" (followed by the memetic "German Science is the best in the world!")

[[folder:Audio Books]]
* Creator/StephenFry sometimes does this for emphasis in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' audio books, especially when portraying Binns in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Chamber of Secrets]]'' ("There is not a shrrred of evidence...") and Trelawney's Grrrim in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]''.

* The Japanese comedy group Rahmens, in the Italian version of their language-class skit. "Tokyo... Osaka... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwKIsfnHQVI&feature=related Ibarrraki!]]"
* Greg Behrendt once made a joke about how [[Literature/TheBible Jesus Christ]] is always depicted as having rock-hard abs, and he says that he wants to train every day so that he can be "rrrripped, like Jesus."

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} tends to do this.
* The villain Katastrophe from ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}''. (It's not an accent, rather him purring to fit in with the sabertooth theme. Although sabertooth tigers probably are unlikely to purr.)

[[folder:Fan Worrrks]]
* [[http://ponyville.livejournal.com/28492.html This Ponyville strip]].
* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, there are characters from the barely-there but hinted at canonical region of [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica Rimwards Howondaland]]. The convention evolved thet White Howondalandian cherecters spoke Morporkian in a way thet, on the page, comprissed their vowel sounds from "a" to "e". Just to emphasise their particular ethnic origin. Doing this consistently with ''every'' quirk of a South African accent would, as Pessimal points out, make their discourse hard to read, even if it ''was'' phonetically accurate. Of course, one quirk of South African English - and Afrikaans - is ''rhoticity'' - the Trilled R. This would elso be herrrrd to rrrrread if ixprrrrissed phoniticelly. Pessimal suggested it should be taken as read and the reader could infer the general concept from the "a - e" thing. This is lampshaded in a discussion about Rimwards Howondalandian Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes. One observer remarks about her magnificently rolling R's. Another, who was privileged to see her in a dress from behind, agrees. [[note]]She normally favours comfortable trousers and only occassionally "dresses girly"[[/note]]

** Extra ham/elocution points for also pronouncing the "h" in "when".
** "We will deal with yourrr rrrebel frrriends soon enough."
* Any character played by 1930's actor Herman Bing (who was usually typecast as a comic German foil).
* The Cowardly Lion in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' does this.
* ''Film/StreetFighter's'' [[BigBad M. Bison]] does this so [[LargeHam hammily]] that it becomes [[MemeticMutation delicious]]! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBc7yQXrP9c I darrre you to watch this]].
* Could be a drinking game in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings.'' Sophisticated characters, like wizards and elves, will have a great go at this; more rustic folk like Hobbits just won't bother. "Morrrdorrr," "A Balrrog of Morrrgoth," "Isildurr's Heirr," etc.
** [[Series/DoctorWho Sylvester McCoy]] has been cast as Rrradagast the Brrrrown in ''Film/TheHobbit''. Good times ahead.
** Justified in these examples (except for "heir" and "brown"), as the Elvish languages have rolled R's. (Then again, from what language is the name Radagast?)
*** Old High German, actually. But names like "Radagast" or "Gandalf" aren't actually [[IHaveManyNames any of their real names]], but a TranslationConvention whereby names in Tolkien's languages are turned into Germanic ones for the convenience of English-speaking readers.
* ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'': I am queen of the witches of Lake Enarra."
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'', [=McQueen=] lampshades this trope when Sally pronounces Francesco Bernoulli's name:
-->'''[=McQueen=]:''' ''[frustrated]'' And don't say it like that. It's three syllables, not ten.

* The Queen of Hearts from ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' does this.
* In the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, [[OurGryphonsAreDifferent gryphons]] both [[{{Sssssnaketalk}} hissss their essess]] and trill their arrrs. Skandranon of the Mage Wars trilogy can and usually does speak carefully and deliberately to make his speech as articulate as any human's, but when he's tired or angry, or trying to convince someone that he's feeling that way, he reverts.
* ''Outcast of Literature/{{Redwall}}'' gives us the spy Wrrrraith.
* The Lady of the Green Kirtle in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' gets as her introduction: ''"Good day, t-r-r-avellers," she cried out in a voice as sweet as the sweetest bird's song, trilling her R's delightfully.''
* The Grand High Witch from ''Literature/TheWitches'', along with VampireVords; it's said to be derived from a Norwegian accent as witches originated in Norway.
* The [[Discworld/TheWeeFreeMen Gonnagles]] of the Nac Mac Feegle tend to roll their Rs in their battle poetry, and even in casual converrrsation.
** Spoofed by John Smith [[MostDefinitelyNotAVillain the not-Vampire]], who rolls his ''Ws''. [[RiddleForTheAges Somehow]].
* The maid at one of the families Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle helps speaks like this.
* Cluny Morvish from ''[[Literature/MortalEngines Scrivener's Moon]]'' talks like this. [[ArousedByTheirVoice Fever appreciates it.]]
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': Warden Ramirez rolls his R's through a tongue-twister to show off in ''Literature/WhiteNight''.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Osgood Conklin on occasion, just to be all the [[BigHam more pompous.]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Seventh Doctor turns this into an art form as a means of underlining Creator/SylvesterMcCoy's status as the first Scottish Doctor, which leads to extreme {{Narm}} when he has to face The Gods Of Rrrragnarrrok.
** The number of r's he can put into a word such as "rrrrrule" is one of the hammier qualities of the Delgado incarnation of the Master. In ''The Daemons'', the daemon he summons tries to do it too, but there's really no competition.
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'': Gavin Millarrr.
* The Two Fat Ladies frequently do this.
* ''Series/{{Batman}}'':
** King Tut.
** The Joker, particularly when he enunciates "Batman and Robin."
** Both Catwomen, ''especially'' Eartha Kitt.
* Fez on ''Series/That70sShow'': "You know how he rolls his Rs? He did that in my mouth!"
* In ''Greetings From Tuscon'', a whole episode focuses primarily on the fact that one of the daughters can't roll her r's despite [[PositiveDiscrimination being Hispanic]].
* Rico in ''Series/HannahMontana'' does this a lot. In one episode, he trills for so long that he actually passes out.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': Dr. Chaotica in the holodeck program ''Film/{{The Adventures of Captain Proton}}'', as he's an AffectionateParody of 1930's sci-fi FilmSerial supervillains.

* In the Granada TV ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'' series, Jeremy Brett, as Holmes, occasionally trills his Rs for emphasis.
* ''Series/SquareOneTV'': On their ''Dragnet'' parody, "Mathnet," one story has a character (played with an Orson Welles-like Large Hamminess), Mr. Stoutman, who once said, "If you had asked me yesterday, the answer would have been a rrresounding yes!"
* Creator/StephenFry does this on occasion when presenting ''Series/{{QI}}''. ''Brrr''illiant!
* In ''Series/TheOfficeUS'', Dwight does this when announcing the names of his garden party guests, ostensibly because he interprets this as a "fancy" way to say things:
-->'''Dwight:''' Misterrr Rrrrrrrrobert Califorrrrrrnia!
* Toei's [[LargeHamAnnouncer Supaaaaaaa Heeeeeerrrrrrrroooooo Time]] prrrrograming block intros from Magirrrrrrrangerrrrrrr and Hibiki to Gekirrrrrrrrangerrrrrrrr and Kiva.
-->Supaaaaaaa Heeeeeerrrrrrrroooooo Time! Starts now.
* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': In "The Final Nail", Beckett interrogates a suspect with a thick Slavic accent (Beckett's response was unscripted; Stana Katic did it by accident, but the producers decided to ThrowItIn):
-->'''Hasberg:''' Mrs. Westlake, she find ring. She call to me to come there. And then she say, "sorry to accuse." She crrry.
-->'''Beckett:''' [[GotMeDoingIt She crrry—she cried?]]
* On the British archaeology program ''Series/TimeTeam'', Dr. Jonathan Foyle occasionally did this when addressing Field Archaeologist Raksha Dave.
* ''Series/FatherTed'': Bishop Brennan had to be in Rrrome tomorrow for an audience with the pope!
* ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'': The Sclash Driver's transformation announcements are always subject to this. And the Twin Breaker's finisher announcement with the Cross-Z Dragon is also subject to this.

* Music/TheBeatles rrroll up, roll up for the [[Music/MagicalMysteryTour "Magical Mystery Tour"]].
* [[Music/{{Rammstein}} Rrrammstein]]. Even Germans make fun of Till Lindemann's use of overly theatrical rolling R's.

* Miss Music/LotteLenya was famous for this.
* The singer from the Tiger Lillies does this very often in live performances.

* Billy Stewart, in "Summertime".
* Japanese singer Music/ShiinaRingo.
* [[Music/{{Morrisey}} Morrrrissey]] likes doing it on his live albums, even when there isn't an 'r' to begin with.

* Rin Kagamine. "Don't [[Website/NicoNicoDouga MyList]] Me!" It's really subtle, but once you can hear it, it's really awesome.
* [[Music/RozaRymbaeva Rrrroza Rrrrymbaeva]] will roll her Rrrrs a lot, as seen in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrZjSwsHk1A Love Has Come]]". Not that it's a bad thing in any way.

* Music/{{Kraftwerk}}: "Wirrr sind die Roboterrr" on ''Music/TheManMachine''.

** ''Clones in Space'' has the [=McShmegegus=] of Shmegego.
--->"...the shimmerrring currrtains through which ye ha'e passed on yourrr explorrration of the ship."

* When the Creator/ReducedShakespeareCompany assumes fake Scottish accents to perform ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'', they inevitably fall back to simply trilling their R's. A lot.
* In the 1979 BBC productions of ''Theatre/RichardII'' and ''Theatre/HenryIV'', Jon Finch did this all the time when playing a suprisingly hammy Bolingbroke/Henry IV.
* In ''Theatre/TheSoldiersTale'', the cadences of "The Devil's Song" have trilled R's coinciding with snare drum flourishes, though the effect is partly lost in the English translation.

* Jill Whelan's character in ''Podcast/TheBrianAndJillShow'' "Shakespearean Actor" sketches (in which Shakespearean actors re-enact celebrity arguments) does this. Brian does this to a far lesser extent.
* WebVideo/{{Caddicarus}} sometimes does this when he's emphasizing a word for effect.
* Antfish's ''WebVideo/JoJosBizarreAdventureAbridged'' gives [[BigBad Dio Brando]] an exaggerated British TrrrillingRrrs accent. Will A. Zeppeli also talks like like, having an equally exaggarated Scottish accent, but he's not evil.

[[folder:Rrreal Life]]
* The weak English "r" sound is actually quite rare among languages. The "r" is trilled in Russian, Arabic, Dutch, Polish, Greek, Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish. Spanish, Italian, Hungarian and some Portuguese dialects have both a tapped "r" and a trilled "rr". The trilled "r" appears in dialects of other languages, such as Scottish English. French and German speakers don't normally trill the "r", but instead pronounce it at the back of the throat.
** Proto-Germanic and Old Latin evidently had trilled "r"'s, as in Classical Latin and the northern and western branches of Germanic, Z merged with R. That's why we say to hear rather than to heaz, and talk of honor rather than honoz.
* UsefulNotes/EsperantoTheUniversalLanguage is meant to be pronounced with trilled R's, but native English speakers usually omit them.
* Creator/NorioWakamoto really loves doing this when he's voice acting ... and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3zJjaEHU9w even when he's not voice acting]].
* UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler often did it. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since he was Austrian - rolling Rrrrs is quite common among Austrians, Bavarians and Swissmen. But outside those places, you can't roll Rrrrs while speaking German anymore without reminding everyone of him, as the {{Reichstropen}} page points out.
** South African comic trevor Noah also pointed out the unfortunate consequence that, if your first language is Afrikaans which has heavily sounded R's, when you learn to speak German, all Germans from outside Austria perceive you as not just Austrian but doing an extremely unsettling Hitler impersonation. [[BlackSpeech German-speaking South Africans sound like demagogues addressing a massed rally]]. Even if all they are asking you to is to pass the salt down the table.
* Jon Gaunt.
* [[Creator/PatrickStewart Patrrrrick Stewart]].
* Brazilian sportscaster Galvão Bueno ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdTadK9p14A yeah, that Galvão]]) is a great fan of Ronaldo, I mean, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykxp-EDF-Cc RRRONALDINHO!]] (Anyone who parodies him turns his "Rs" UpToEleven).
* Mexican sportscaster José Ramón Jiménez also used to signal the beginning of a match with "¡ARRRRRANCA la primera mitad!"
* This is reflected in the Spanish language alphabet, which has a few consonants alien to English. "R" is almost always read like "ti'''d'''al", in most (all?) American accents. [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Nobody feverr errs in rreading "Rr".]]
** The rules are actually pretty simple: If it's a single "r" in the middle of a word, it's the weak pronunciation. If it's a double r ("rr"), or a single r at the beginning of the word, then it's the trilled one.
*** Not so fast, buddy! It's actually not so simple. A "r" letter immediately after a "l", "n", "s" letter or a "sub-" prefix, has a triggered pronunciation too. For instance: the words "alrededor" ("around"), "honrar" ("to honor"), "Israel" and "subrayar" ("to underline").
* One possible way to identify someone from El Salvador is whether or not they roll their "r"s exaggeratedly at the end of sentences that end with words that end in an r. A longer trill correlates with high Salvadoran-ness.
* Creator/JackBlack. Through the skies, he flies, he doesn't know the RRREASON why, but he flies... so high... you'll know that it's TRUE!
* Everyone's favorite dirty old little lady, Dr. Rrrrruth Westheimer is known particularly well for this.
* Creator/ChristopherLee was famous for this, along with his baritone and cool British accent.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYTLkjhrA08 Björk]].
* UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts announcer Lenne Hardt's signature announcing style involves rolling every R in each fighter's name, often holding them for several seconds. They didn't call her "PRIDE Crazy Lady" for nothing.
