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, Dutch, Finnish, some Gerrrman and [[VampireVords Trrrransylvanian]] dialects, and Scots), otherrr than in English. Also frrrequently employed when the speakerrr is rrrelated to felines in some way, imitating a cat's purrring.

In Japan, it's a marrrrrkerrrr of being rrrreaalllyyy 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!"]][[note]]If they were [[HistoryOfEnglish non-Rhrrrrotic]][[/note]]. Compare SssssnakeTalk.

[[folder:Adverrrtising]]
* "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.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]

* ''KeroroGunsou''. [[GratuitousEnglish Noo prrrooblem!]]
* According to the editor's notes in the Creator/DarkHorseComics translation, Reina Gorn from ''KurosagiCorpseDeliveryService'' rolls her [=Rs=] to [[TranslationConvention reflect her imperfect Japanese]].

* Scanty and Kneesocks from ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' sure do love their [[strike:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwZSzlk4JHA "Rrrules"]]]] [[MemeticMutation RRRUUURRRUUU]].
** To the point that the protagonists eventually [[BriefAccentImitation mock their pronunciation.]]
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'' anime (but not the manga), Happy incorporates this trope as part of a RunningGag whenever he lampshades perceived romantic implications between characters
* Germany from ''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. [[LargeHam PREPARRRE]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny TO MEET YOURRR]] [[GermanicDepressives BOOORRRRING GOD]] [[TooDumbToLive IN YOURRR BORRRING]] GE-AR-MAN HE-A-VEHN
* Franky from ''OnePiece''. [[GratuitousEnglish "Good smell! Frrravor!"]]
* Onsokumaru from ''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).
* ''CodeGeass'' gives us "RRRUUUUURRRRUUUSSSHHUUU!!".
* A fairly mild example pops up a couple times in ''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]].
[[/folder]]

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

* 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]]

[[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]]

[[folder:Fan Worrrks]]
* [[http://ponyville.livejournal.com/28492.html This Ponyville strip]].
[[/folder]]

** 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).
* Film/StreetFighter's [[BigBad M. Bison]] did this so [[LargeHam hammily]] that it became [[MemeticMutation delicious]]! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBc7yQXrP9c I darrre you to watch this]].
* Could be a drinking game in ''Film/LordOfTheRings.'' 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.
** [[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?)
* ''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:

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literrraturrre]]
* The Queen of Hearts from ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' does this.
* In the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, gryphons both [[{{Sssssnaketalk}} hissss their essess]] and trill their arrrs. Skandranon 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 {{Redwall}}'' gives us the spy Wrrrraith.
* The Lady of the Green Kirtle in ''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 ''TheWitches'', along with VampireVords; it's said to be derived from a Norwegian accent as witches originated in Norway.

* The maid at one of the families Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle helps speaks like this.
* Cluny Morvish from ''[[MortalEngines Scrivener's Moon]]'' talks like this. [[ArousedByTheirVoice Fever appreciates it.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* The Seventh Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' turned this into an art form as a means of underlining Creator/SylvesterMcCoy's status as the first Scottish Doctor. Which led to extreme {{Narm}} when he had to face The Gods Of Rrrragnarrrok.
** The number of r's he could put into a word such as "rrrrrule" was 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 ''That70sShow'': "You know how he rolls his Rs? He did that in my mouth!"
* In ''Greetings From Tuscon'', a whole episode was primarily on the fact that one of the daughters couldn't roll her r's despite [[PositiveDiscrimination being Hispanic]].
* Rico in ''HannahMontana'' did this a lot. In one episode, he trilled for so long that he actually passed out.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. Dr Chaotica in the holodeck program ''The Adventures of Captain Proton'', as he's an AffectionateParody of 1930's sci-fi FilmSerial supervillains.
-->[="I'm afrrraid your SEC-cretarrry has alrrready been prrromised to Queen ArrrrACK-nia as a SUPrrreeeeme sACKrrrrifice!"=]

* In ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'', [[AbhorrentAdmirer Doña Clotilde ("La Bruja del 71")]] does this whenever she mentions "Don Rrrramón".

* ''Square One'': On their ''Dragnet'' parody, "Mathnet," one story had 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!"
* StephenFry does this on occasion when presenting ''Series/{{QI}}''. ''Brrr''illiant!
* In ''[[Series/TheOfficeUS The Office]] (US)'', Dwight does this when announcing the names of his garden party guests, ostensibly because he interprets this as a "fancy" way to say things:

* Toei's [[LargeHamAnnouncer Supaaaaaaa Heeeeeerrrrrrrroooooo Time]] prrrrograming block intros from Magirrrrrrrangerrrrrrr and Hibiki to Gekirrrrrrrrangerrrrrrrr and Kiva.

* Music/{{Gorillaz}} bassist Murdoc tends to do this in interviews.
* JohnLydon from the Music/TheSexPistols. They made you a MORRROOON.

* [[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.
* Eartha Kitt.
* Music/{{Kraftwerk}}: "Wirrr sind die Roboterrr" on ''Music/TheManMachine''.
* The ''Comedian Harmonists'', a German ACapella band active during the 20's and 30's, because that's how people used to sing back in the time of the WeimarRepublic.
* The PresentDay singer Max Raabe, because [[{{Retraux}} he is basically a walking homage to the music of that era]].
* In Creator/MervGriffin's '40s novelty hit "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Cocoanuts", he does this on one of the choruses. ("Rrrroll or bowl a ball...")
* "Rubber Biscuit" (originally by The Chips, later covered by TheBluesBrothers) has one of these at the end.
-->''"What do you want for nothin'? Rrrubber biscuit?!!"''

* Creator/ChristopherLee doing the dramatic narrative parts for RhapsodyOfFire.
* A trademark of Music/EdithPiaf when she sang.

[[folder:Theatrrre]]
* When the Reduced Shakespeare Company 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 ''RichardII'' and ''HenryIV'', Jon Finch did this all the time when playing a suprisingly hammy Bolingbroke/Henry IV.

* 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:Westerrrn Animation]]
* Dr. Robotnik from ''AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' does this all the time:

* In {{Disney}}'s ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'', Jock the Scottish terrier does this (among other times) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNqBePvsXXU while he's singing a song]]: "forrr me own", "back yarrrd".
* Scrooge [=McDuck=], another Scottish character, often does this on ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.
* In an effort to show how perfect her Spanish is, [[KingOfTheHill Peggy Hill]] does this way too much.
* Principal Luna from ''ClassOf3000'' does this, but then again, he's Latino.
* The early WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes short ''DaffyDuck in Hollywood'' features a pig movie director with a thick German accent named von Hemberger, a parody of Josef von Sternberg voiced by Herman Bing (see "Film" above), who keeps doing this.
** BugsBunny imitates an elderly Scotsman: "Poachin' rrrrrabbits on m' prrrroperty! I'm displeased, Mac Rrrrrrrary!"
* Groundskeeper Willie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':

[[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 and Norwegian. Spanish and Italian 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.
* UsefulNotes/EsperantoTheUniversalLanguage is meant to be pronounced with trilled R's, but native English speakers usually omit them.
* 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. And as the {{Reichstropen}} page points out, you can't roll Rrrrs while speaking German anymore without immediately reminding everyone of him.
* 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.
* 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 is famous for this, along with his baritone and cool British accent.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYTLkjhrA08 Björk]].
* 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.
* Cats have these in almost all of their extended vocalizations.
* Averted with people who are tongue tied. Their ''frenulum linguae'' (the thing connecting your tongue to the floor of your mouth) it [[SorryBillyButYouJustDontHaveLegs too short to vibrate that quickly]].
