Katnappé from Xiaolin Showdown is chock-full of puns of a feline nature. She proceeds to use them all the time.
Pinky from Pinky and the Brain had quite a few of these phrases, including "Narf", "Zort", "Poit", and after an episode involving mirrors, "Troz" (Pinky holds a piece of paper that reads "ZORT" on it up to the mirror to come up with that one, and it sticks). Some episodes give him a different word to say ("Fjord!" "Hark!" "Natch!" "Glarb!" "Merp!") Brain is not entirely immune either, as he frequently adds an over-emphatic "Yes!" after his sentences, for no particular reason.
There's also Bobby Bob Boffo the stupid man who works at the White House, he'll often say "Did" in the middle of his sentences and "Diddy" at the end of them.
The Gloops from Blinky Bill gulp during their dialogue.
The versions of Mega Man and Kid Icarus seen in Captain N: The Game Master affix the prefix "Mega-" and the suffix "-icus", respectively, to half the words that come out of their mouths. Game Boy is even worse, as Seanbaby points out in an issue of EGM-Not only does he make electronic beeps and blorts completely at random, he does it because he likes to-he moves his digital lips to accompany.
Shrapnel repeats the last word of his sentences, sentences.
Mixmaster did something similar on one occasion, and can Never Live It Down. It's a pretty characterful tic, you gotta admit; he repeats the first syllable of the last word/noun of a sentence, i.e. "auto-auto-auto-bots!", AND it sort of fits his name. It's a shame he didn't stick with it.
Armada's Tidal Wave has a penchant for beginning or ending (sometimes both) sentences with his own name. He's also a Hulk Speaker, and the fandom can never quite decide if he's that stupid, or if it's just some kind of speech impediment. In the original Japanese, Tidal Wave (called Shockwave) kept that tic when he upgraded to Mirage (called Shockfleet). He ended all his sentences with "Shock!". However, in the American dub Mirage didn't have the tic.
After being given his name, Wreck-Gar of Animated begins every sentence that pertains to himself with "I am Wreck-Gar!" The original Wreck-Gar, along with all the other Junkions, spoke almost exclusively in TV catch-phrases. As they put it "We talk TV!" This stems from the Junkions learning to speak by watching old television broadcasts from Earth.
Wreck-Gar: Yes friends, act now, destroy Unicron! Kill the Grand Poobah! Eliminate even the toughest stains!
Even in the Transformers: Shattered Glass Universe, I, Grimlock, who is gifted with remarkable intelligence, still speak with certain linguistic idiosyncrasies. Mus'nt complain to much, wot?
In the Japanesedub of Beast Wars, this was used to fill up every moment when no one was speaking, and several when someone was. For example, Silverbolt ended every sentence with desu, even though in the original, he's either in mid-conversation or silently brooding. We know he's a Large Ham, but come on.
Japanese-dub Beast Wars had two of these from Quickstrike - he'd end sentences with "gicchon" (Japanese for "snippety!"), and the cobra head on his tail would end with "ko", "bura", or "kobura" (verging on Pokémon Speak). And then there was Cheetor, who'd make a growling noise.
Scorponok often made the sound "ora" for no apparent reason, while Waspinator would end his sentences with a "buuun" sound (which I'm assuming is the Japanese onomatopoeia for buzzing).
Warpath from the original cartoon had it so bad - it was rare to hear him go more than four or five words without a pow or zowie.
Mention of Omega Supreme: Not found. Problem: easily corrected.
Soundwave: Superior. Omega Supreme: Inferior.
Shrapnel repeats the last word of his sentences. Sentences...
In the Marvel comic, Runamuck tended to give a short laugh at the end of each sentence, heh-heh.
Beast Wars Inferno thought he was an actual ant. As such, the base is called the colony, Megatron is the Queen, the other Predacons are drones, and those who threaten the colony shall BUUUUUUUURN! FOR THE ROYALTY!
Megatron: Inferno, aid Quickstrike.
Inferno: Yes, my Queen.
Dinobot: I was not aware you had given yourself a new title.
Megatron: [quickly] The ant has faulty programming, but his loyalty is without question.
While on the topic of Transformers lets remind ourselves of all of the Transformers Animated examples! Although most of them are a little more "Talks complete gibberish" than "Verbal Tic" But it still happens!
In the Japanese version of the series Lugnut feels the need to say "ttsu" in every sentence
His fanatic loyalty makes for some interesting lines, especially if he is saying anything in regards to his grand and GLORIOUS leader.
"STASIS LOCK ITSELF COULD NOT DETER ME FROM YOUR GRAND AND GLORIOUS PLAN, OH WISE AND NOBLE MEGATRON!"
Me Grimlock talk just like G1.
Blurr talks incredibly fast (He is voiced by the fastest talking person ever, John Moschitta Jr.)
Jazz speaks in beatnik slang, you dig?
Jetstorm & Jetfire also speak insanely broken Engrish. Although it does sound more like a "Second language" deal when coupled with the Russian accents.
Blitzwing..... It doesn't count as a verbal tyic but he has three different voices which in itself is a verbal tic (Well, he does have 3 heads)
The Starscream clones have verbal tics but that is because of their personalities (It can still be counted, though or at least Ramjet can)
Ramjet: Compulsive Liar, Sunstorm: Suck-Up, Thundercracker: Egomaniac, Skywarp: Coward. Slipstream may or may not count since we don't know what part of Starscream she embodies (and likely never will).
Perceptor has a "Stephen Hawking"-esque voice (actually the same software being used to create his lines.) All There in the Manual says it's because he deleted his emotions and personality, though in the show he's more of a Tin Man.
Warpath (Bam, Pow) talks really weird like he has tourettes and causes him to mutter Onomatopoetic words related to Stuff Blowing Up. Less so than G1, at least in the show.
Listen up, ya mooks! Yous palookas are gonna join Dirt Boss' crew, and you're gonna like it!
LOL Da H34DM4S73R is L33t wit hs 1nt3rn37 sl4n9
Slo-Mo likes to use a synonym for anything.
Yon Angry Archer has a preferably dry wit outmatched by his silver tongue
And then, the post-series comics made for certain events add more, with new characters and sometimes fleshing out the background 'bots:
MOTORRRRRRRRRRMASTER TAAAAAAAAAAAAAALK LIKE RANDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY SAAAAAAAAVVVVVAAAGGGGEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beachcomber, like totally talks like a surfer dude, ya dig?
Subject: Dug Base. Speech Impediment: What do you think? This makes him sound more like G1 Soundwave than even Animated Soundwave did, as Animated Soundwave speaks in the same pretty vocoded monotone but is able to give full sentences.
Wheelie has nothing wrong with his voice, for this fate he shall rejoice!
Pipes and-a Huffer always talk like-a Italian stereotype. They've basically been reimagined as Autobot Mario and Luigi.
Carrera is a nutcase. There. He talks like a sports announcer all the time. But, weirdly enough, Bumper thinks this will lower his chances of being a sports announcer. Sarcasm Mode mode much?
Glyph cant help but recite phrases mì languages lahe ayswirä.
Cyclonus likes to swoop in like a vast predatory bird and close a sentence with a Furmanism. Can he do less? Also, he likes to give a short, sharp lesson to any Autobots and give them a world of pain and he cannot, will not die screaming. He knows the end is near but he never did want to live forever. (For those who are confused, Simon Furman, noted Transformers comic writer tends to use these types of sentences in his comics.)
It seems to a family trait for the people in Irwin's family (at least for the people from Irwin's dad's side of the family)—Irwin's dad, Dick, often says "dude" and Irwin's paternal (his dad's mom), better known as "Grandmama," often calls her loved "baby." There have been conversations between Irwin and his dad consisting entirely (or almost entirely) of "Dude" and "Yo."
The Ren & Stimpy Show has Daisy the Cow, who has a tendency to quietly say "moo" at the end of his sentences.
In an early-season episode, the plane'arium director / baddie hypnotist fibs that he has a medical condition that prevents him from pronouncing the "T" in plane'arium. He was hoping to one day get a bone-marrow transplant (he pronounced that fine).
Michael "Jefferson" randomly inserted "Hee-hee!", "Ohhh!", "Chamone!", and "Ditabederjah!" into his sentences.
The "vampire" leader in the episode "The Ungroundable" frequently ends his sentences with "per se," per se.
The bikers in "The F Word" tend to randomly make motorcycle revving noises.
The pimps in "Butters' Bottom Bitch" have "You know what I'm sayin'?" Butters adopts this phrase but in a rather uncool way: "Do you know what I am saying?"
In an episode of Spongebob Squarepants, the titular character gets stuck in "Rock Bottom," where everyone interjects "thbbbbbt" noises randomly into their sentences, and can't understand the "accent" of anyone who doesn't do the same.
Snarf often ends his sentences with his own name. Snarfer did it with his name as well. (And as far as we know that is his name. Most uncreative parents ever.)
Slythe was also fond of adding "yessss?" to the end of his sentences.
This is because his true tic was Sssssnaketalk. Apparently Viewers Are Morons and won't realize it if he can't do it with every line ever, so if there aren't any enough sibiliants to drag out, he'll have a non-sequitur "yessss" thrown in for him to do it with, yesssss?
The Berzerkers would repeat the last word or phrase of a sentence a couple of times (a couple of times! a couple of times!)
Ben Gali tended to growl. It was half Narm, half sexy.
Chilla had to use ice puns as often as possible.
Serpentor from G.I. Joe debatably had such a tic, as he took his Catch-Phrase to tic-like levels. THIS, I COMMAND!
Metal-Head also tended out to yell "FIRE! FIRE!" and/or "BANG! BANG! BANG!" Granted, it was because the numerous missile pods strapped to his limbs and shoulders were voice activated, but he really liked Stuff Blowing Up. To where he kinda couldn't help it any more, more than once getting so excited just THINKING about it, he accidentally launched several missiles while still in a Cobra base.
Flonominal of The Boondocks ends nearly every sentence with "Naw mean?". In an episode where Riley and Granddad watch too much BET, they can't stop interspersing and ending their sentences with "Y'feel me?" and "dog". And of course there is Riley overuse of the N-word, regardless of wether is interlocutor is black or not, as if it was a kind of punctuation.
One episode of The Tick featured a tribe of pseudo-Aztecs who said "-itlan" at the end of each sentence. (They were actually an abandoned soccer team who got their knowledge of Aztec culture from a badly written pulp novel.) They were doing it on purpose, to sound more Aztec. When Carmelita asked what all the "itlan" nonsense is, the team captain calls out to the rest of them, "I declare that we shall all stop saying itlan, itlan!"
The Sewer Urchin definitely says definitely, definitely!
Ned Flanders peppers ran-diddly-andom words with odd sounds like "diddly" and "doodly". This trait appears to run in his extended family. When Ned finally has a nervous breakdown, the sentence devolves into "-diddly-doodly-" until he's dragged away. It comes to light that this tic is an ineffective release valve for Ned's repressed negative emotions, as a result of being spanked from a hyperactive child into a model citizen. Notably, when he breaks down in "Hurricane Neddy", he lashes out at the town ("Aw hell diddley-ding-dong crap! Can't you morons do anything right?) and the tic disappears for a while. At one point it's revealed that Ned even writes the "diddly" part of his speech.
Yes Guy: Eeeh-yeeesss? Homer: Do you have a table for the mayor? Yes Guy: Eeeh-yeeeeesss! Homer: Why do you talk that way? Yes Guy: Ny-I had a stroooke!
In the episode "E-I-E-I- (Annoyed Grunt)" there's a Southern colonel who adds "I say" into the middle of every other sentence, for example "Sir, I say Sir, it's time for our duel!" This is based on Senator Claghorn from Fred Allen's hugely popular radio show, whom then served as the inspiration for Foghorn Leghorn.
Er, ah, Mayor, er, ah, Quimby. Whose accent and speech patterns were based on the late Senator Ted Kennedy.
Marge's disapproving "Hmmm..." and Homer's annoyed/despairing "Ohhhh...!"
The Director. And all his wacky henchmen with the "HOY-yal!" and "Freunleven!" This is because The Director is a parody of Jerry Lewis.
Yakko tends to stammer/draw out the word "I" when it begins a sentence to emphasize discomfort or, well, to just sound a little more sarcastic, leading to, "Yaaaaaaaaahhhhh I don't think so," or variations thereof. If the sentence doesn't start with "I" he'll just take on a long "Ahhhh" at the beginning.
Once spoofed when he was having more trouble than usual thinking up a quip, and drew out the "Ahhhh" so long it started to sound like he was choking.
Wakko had "Faboo!"
Runt definitely, definitely, definitely says "definitely" a lot.
Sort of lampshaded in the Macarena parody, "Macadamia Nut," which ends each verse with a different character's Verbal Tic.
Ducky, from The Land Before Time, ends most sentences with either "yep, yep, yep" or "nope, nope, nope."

SURELY YOU HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN ABOUT LRRR, RULER OF THE PLANET OMICRON PERSEI 8?!
Futurama also featureses Sal, who tends to ends randoms wordses with additional esses, evens if theys alreadys gots 'em.
Bender never says the word "me" without adding "Bender" after it.
The giant chicken prosecutor has a tendency to say "Ba-kaw!"
Hubert Farnsworth not only pronounces the H in "wh" words, but pronounces an H in words that don't have it. Since this hypercorrection is fairly consistent, it's not as readily noticeable as when Stewie does it.
Farnsworth: Whell, let's get started.
Zapp Brannigan has a habit of elongating the last syllable of a sentence. Billy West says he does this to imitate radio announcers who love the sound of their own voice.
Mr. DeMartino, who was even more high-strung than Principal McVicker on Beavis and Butt-Head, would EMphasize certain WORDS when chastising or complaining about anything or anyone, complete with his left eye bulging in a terrifying fashion.
Jake's angry "GAHHHH!", occasionally emphasized with a "DAMMIT!" There's even a song dedicated to it.
Sandi's disapproving "Gee," followed by uttering the name of whoever she's gee-ing at.
Brittany's perky cheerleader squeak.
Tiffannnnyyyyyy the Asiiiiiaaaaaannnn Airhead seems to draaaaagggggg her words in monooooootooooone at everrrrryy two or threeeeee sentences.
Whenever Donald Duck realizes something he'll shout "Quack!" as an exclamation, instead of humming or grumbling he'll quack instead, and when he's really mad he'll go into a series of furious quacks.
As mentioned...I say, as mentioned before, Foghorn Leghorn is prone to doing this...prone, that is (one short lampshades this with a sleeping Foghorn going "(snore), I say...(snore), that is...). This was borrowed from Senator Claghorn, a character on Fred Allen's hugely popular radio show. Foghorn predated the debut of Claghorn by a few months, but once Claghorn became popular, the Warner staff turned Foghorn into a very blatant Expy of Claghorn. And eclipsed him, eventually.
Daffy Duck, who, when irritated, ends almost every sentence with an aggressive "bub!", and Bugs Bunny, who seems to believe everyone he talks to has a doctorate...
In the short Little Red Riding Rabbit, Red Riding Hood as a verbal tic ta haaave.
The short Egghead Rides Again features a dadburned hotel manager who says "dadburn" once every few words, dadburnit.
The short Porky at the Crocadero features a telegram delivery man who says "I bet'cha" at the end of every sentence, I bet'cha.
In the Canadian series C.L.Y.D.E., does the head computer bug (colored red) sometimes fall into this? "Yes or no!?"
Strawberry Shortcake is berry famous for "berry talk", most frequently substituting the word "berry" for "very". In the 1980s animated specials, her nemesis the Purple Pieman is berry annoyed by this, to the point that she can use the tic as a threat. He can never resist a little scat-singing-and-dancing every time he introduces himself or someone else recognizes him. Also from the '80s specials is Angel Cake in "Pets on Parade": Begging your pardon, she's unfailingly polite to the point that she works the phrases "begging your pardon", "please", or "thank you" into her speeches at every opportunity, thank you please.
Her 2003 counterpart had the same thing.
A lot of animated shows involving a vampire will have the lead vampire say "Bluh! Bluh!" either at the beginning or end of his sentences.
WordGirl villain the Whammer tends to replace random words in his sentences with the word "wham" or "whammer." So he often says things like "this is gonna be whammer" or "let's wham this thing" or "are you whamming to me?" He also ends every sentence with the phrase "yeah!"
Uncle from Jackie Chan Adventures whenever he was annoyed or agitated he would shout "Aieyaah!" and when notifying others he would say "Hacha!", in one episode Jade absorbs Uncle's chi to save her from the Chi Vampire and she starts using his tics.
In Dexter's Laboratory, we not only have Dexter overly pronouncing his la-BOR-atory every time (among the rest of his inexplicable accent), but in his introductory episode his Arch-Nemesis Mandark has a strange, staccato laugh. "HA, HA HA! HA, HAHA, HA HA!" In Mandark's later day in the limelight episode we find out he not only laughs like this every time, but everything from laughing to crying to brushing his teeth to chewing his food is done with the same rhythm. It's also apparently inherited, since when his mother taps her foot impatiently, yes, it's tap, tap-tap, tap tap-tap tap-tap.
Dr. Psychobos on Ben 10: Omniverse has a tendency to end his sentences with "and I use the term loosely", usually when the term in question can't be used loosely.

The Satanic leader from Moral Orel likes to say "And what not" at every end of the sentence and what not.
Dr. Pretorius of The Mask constantly pronounces the titular character's last name as "Ipp-kiss."
In Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch, being that they're all talking cars, motorcycles and other vehicles, various characters (all except Wheelie, who can only "speak" using various "car horn" sounds) often use car engine sounds as their verbal tics, but Revs (one of the Chopper Bunch) is especially prone to this.
In My Little Pony G3, pretty much everyone had a Catch-Phrase; however, Thistle Whistle's speech was full of whistling noises, to the point that on a human it would be a clear case of Tourette's. Also, Rainbow Dash is known for pretty much having FIM Rarity's personality, which does include the use of "Darling." However, G3 Dash managed to say it in almost every sentence, and sometimes multiple times (for example, "That's a darling idea, darling!" or, when the missing Wysteria, Pinkie Pie, and Zipzee turned up again, "It's our darlings, darling!") to the point where you can't make a Drinking Game of it because if you take a shot every time she says it you'll be dead from alcohol poisoning by minute ten.
In the Hanna-Barbera tv special "The Adventures Of Robin Hoodnik" Little John (who's an anthropomorphic bear) inserts "Ah" in the beginning or middle of his sentences, and the Sheriff of Nottingham's henchman Oxx begins many of his sentences with "Ooh,Ooh!".
Mr. Jinks from the Pixie and Dixie shorts has, like, his own set of verbal tics, y'know.
Ladies and gentlemen! Do YOU like characters with odd verbal tics? Do you wish there was one in the fine cartoon program Darkwing Duck? Well look no further than Darkwing's foe theee LIQUIDATOR, who constantly talks as if he was filming a commercial!
Wooldoor from Drawn Together constantly says "Whee!". This was lampshaded in "Drawn Together Babies", which reveals that he has to say it every 30 seconds or else he'll drown in his own bile.
The "Suck My Tait Girl" from The Movie tends to insert the word "tait" into her sentences.
Soos from Gravity Falls uses the word "Dude" a lot. It would probably be easier to count the number of sentences where he doesn't say "dude" at least once.
Bo the sheep adds surfer slang like "like", "yo", and "man" into his sentences.
The Wild Puffalumps have a habit of saying "Wild" in a drawn-out, echoing tone, which causes the lenses of their sunglasses to repeatedly flash the word "Wild".
Old Queeks from Mike, Lu & Og often puts "what-what" at the end of his sentences, what-what.
Bunjee from "The Bunjee Venture" adds "Eee Eee Eee!" at the end of his sentences and makes honking sounds from his trunk.
The television program which is known as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012) contains the characters which is known as the Kraang. The thing that is called speech in that which those known as the Kraang speaks does not contain that which is referred to as pronouns.
Rick and Morty: Rick has two: repeating Morty's name and belching in the middle of a sentence.
Freddy Krueger parody Scary Terry always punctuates his sentences with the world "Bitch", even when completely unnecessary ("I'm late for class, bitch!")
Camp Lazlo: Samson would mumble "Merp, merp, merp" whenever he is overcome by Super OCD-related stress.

In Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, a...one...time...char...ac...ter...named...Ro...cket...speaks...in...a...way...that's...meant...to...remind...the...viewers...that...he's...a...sloth.note This changes after he gets zapped with Dr. Robotnik's broken "slow mo" ray.
On Franklin and Friends, Rabbit sometimes repeats words or short phrases twice for emphasis, i.e. "Yeah, yeah, yeah!", "Come on, come on, come on!" or "This box is great, great, great!"
Dad Unit, the father of the titular character of Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones?, has a tendency to say whatever he has to say three times in a row (e.g. "Listen to your mother, listen to your mother, listen to your mother").
