Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DragaliaLost'': Curran has a tendency to mix up his words. In the Japanese version, it was just him biting his tongue, but in English, we get gems like "Heretics, like beauty, are in the eye of the buttholder."
-->'''Notte''': Heh... buttholder.


* Goofy in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games does this occasionally, such as saying "muddling" instead of "meddling" and "traffic system" instead of "transit system". In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', [[WesternAnimation/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Doc]] does it too, just like in the original movie.
