Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Sesquipedalian: A long word, or characterized by the use of long words. From the Latin roots meaning "a foot and a half long."
Loquaciousness: That would be garrulousness, verboseness, effusiveness. How about "chattiness"?
A predilection by the intelligentsia to engage in the manifestation of prolix exposition through a buzzword disposition form of communication notwithstanding the availability of more comprehensible, punctiliously applicable, diminutive alternatives. Also known as "gross verbosity". Related to this is the use of inkhorn terms, loanwords from a foreign origin that are pretentious to an average speaker.
In brief: "smart" characters using long words when short ones would be better, especially when they are also motor mouths. Characters afflicted with this trait often seem to go out of their way to over-complicate their speech, probably because writers think that this is the only way to show that someone is more intelligent than the average writer. This could also be the trait of a particularly anal-retentive character who always has to be right, the trait extending so far that the character always has to use exactly the right word — never using "blue" when "azure" or "indigo" or even "royal blue" would be more accurate, for example.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Occasionally such characters may drop the long words if things get particularly dire, to emphasize just how bad things are (in the same way as a Sarcasm Failure). Alternatively, they may get even more wordy as they get more emotional, leading to increasingly detailed but ultimately incoherent ranting that falls too easily into wangst. Frequently another character will respond with something like "Wouldn't it be easier to just [whatever the brainy person said, in layman's terms]?" or "And [layman's terms version], too!" In The United States, when someone really has no idea what the person says, they'll say something like, "Could you repeat that in plain ol' Galveston English?"
Williams Syndrome can lead to this kind of behavior. People with Asperger Syndrome and some forms of Dyslexia may do this in an attempt to be as precise as possible, ironically making themselves harder to understand.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })The Narcissist, The Paranoiac, and other less-than-pleasant personalities may engage in this as well, often to try and convince others—or themselves—that they are smarter than most people. On a more sinister level, it can also be used as a form of verbal Gaslighting, in order to confuse, swamp, and manipulate the receiver so that a particular end may be met. The Con Man sometimes makes use of this trope too when passing off as a professional or an expert in their apparent "field", duping others into thinking that the only reason they don't understand what he/she is selling is that they are smarter than them or that they can trust them, when in fact they are spouting nonsense and looking to take advantage of their ignorance.
While maintaining a strong endeavor to avoid flogging a deceased equine, err I mean trying hard not to beat a dead horse, in some cases technical jargon is necessary to be understood, but in too many cases a person doesn't consider that the audience is not that technically inclined and a simpler, although less precise description would work just as well.
One of the symptoms of Spock Speak, but averted in a good Private Eye Monologue. Usually also a Motor Mouth. Goes well with British accents, too. Used frequently in Sommelier Speak. Often takes advantage of the fact that Talking Is a Free Action, and could be a case of Acoustic License if the surroundings would make it difficult to hear clearly in the first place, much less understand the words. Can often lead to an Expospeak Gag. See also Techno Babble, Antiquated Linguistics, Sophisticated as Hell, and Department of Redundancy Department. May result in Calling Me a Logarithm. If someone tries for this and can't get the words right, they're perpetrating Delusions of Eloquence. If the author commits this, see Purple Prose. The word Antidisestablishmentarianism is almost guaranteed to show up as well.
Very heavily associated with the Steampunk genre in particular, and Truth in Television in that case, as the Victorians did speak a form of English that was more complex and verbose.
It's worth noting that there is a word for the fear of long words; ironically, it's "sesquipedalophobia" often exaggerated by people into "hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia".
The polar opposite of Buffy Speak and Layman's Terms. Big Words redirects here, for those of us who prefer to avert this trope in Real Life (or are just incapable of spelling it correctly off the tops of our heads). Contrast the Laconic Wiki. Also note the similarity to Techno Babble. May require one to have a Translator Buddy.
When a character attempts this but lacks the vocabulary to follow through properly, see Malaproper.

Lincoln: Rep. Fernando Wood, the main orator for the pro-slavery Democrats, gives loud and wordy speeches in a hammy manner, which his opponents sometimes mock.note Truth in Television; The real Wood actually was quite hammy, and was even censured by Congress after a 1868 speech where he insulted everyone in the House.

French comic book Achille Talon could have practically defined this trope. The hero, a fat bourgeois, as well as most of his entourage, adds verbosity to pedantry and pretentiousness to gullibility in an incredible verbal creativeness.

Near the end of Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood, when Guybrush asks De Singe what he's doing with the Vaycaylian Wind Control Device (before attempting to toss La Esponja Grande into the device), De Singe replies, "You see, using my handbuilt Harpsichronitron, in conjunction with my Oscimoligrophiscope to seek out a resonant frequency with the Vaycaylian Climatiphone, I hope to anatomize living tissue on a macroscopic basis!" Guybrush, however, becomes clueless and can ask De Singe to repeat with the purposes of all this machinery, and De Singe can translate that he's using the piano device ("this machine") to make the Wind Control Device ("that machine") "smash people into a fine powder," which, of course, causes Guybrush to say, "Hey, that's not very nice!"
Also, in "Chapter 2: The Siege of Spinner Cay", Guybrush has another meaning to "You suck!":

In Fire Emblem 9 and 10, Bastian is often known for this, and contrasted with Geoffery who often verbally plays The Stoic. Miriel from Awakening seems to fall into this category as well, often bringing up the amelioration and propitious growth of her stats; her son, Laurent, naturally follows suit.

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century used this trope at times, especially in the earlier episodes. Often lmpshaded by having Buck be increasingly irritated at having to stop and figure out the "simplistic" 20th-century equivalent for whatever the other characters are talking about.

The "genius" types on Bones, including the character nicknamed "Bones", do this often. Justified, in that those who do so outside of the professional circumstances in which it's expected show other signs of Asperger's as well, particularly Dr. Zack Addy.
Brennan once agreed with someone by saying, "I concur. Vehemently!"
And then there's this exchange from "The Titan on the Tracks":
Dr. Gordon Wyatt does this too, possibly because he's played by Stephen Fry

The Caged Demonwolf from Empowered, with lots of Added Alliterative Appeal. ("Like unto 80s action-cinema icon Michael Dudikoff, be you a fabled Ninja American, oh jingoistic jackanapes?"). He's doing it on purpose. His Imagine Spots are readily identified because it carries over to everyone's dialogue (even mid-ravishing).

The Simpsons
One episode has Homer start talking like this after a Sleep Learning tape intended to curb his hunger is switched with a vocabulary builder. "Lamentably, no. My gastronomic rapacity knows no satiety." Later played with, when Homer loses his vocabulary without regaining his ability to communicate succinctly.
Some of the more intellectually inclined Springfield residents (Sideshow Bob, Professor Frink) occasionally indulge in this. And then there's Mr. Burns and his Antiquated Linguistics. Being the aesthete that he is, Sideshow Bob however rejected the sesquipedalian but inelegant "disembowel" in favour of a much shorter word when he wrote down what to do with Bart in Cape Feare:

Pretty much every scientist in Eureka spoke this way. Justified since Carter was the only person in town who couldn't understand this and given the problems involved complex science they likely felt that a detailed explanation would be necessary. Henry usually served as translator.
A lot of them were also just arrogant. When someone interrupts your lunch there is no reason a normal person would respond, "Can't a man masticate in peace?"

In Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, Captain Qwark disguised as Abercrombie Fizzwidget does this... or at least tries to. However, he just comes off looking like a total moron as he constantly spews words that don't exist. The real Fizzwidget doing this correctly is about the only character trait we see of him in his short amount of screen time.

Pulp Adventures has William Harper "Johnny" Littlejohn from the Doc Savage franchise (cf. Literature) as one of the (many) available player characters. His flavour text not only refers to the trope, but one of his ability, "Voluminous Vocabulary" weaponizes this by confusing the enemies. The description of the ability is itself an example of the trope:

An overly-complex vocabulary was the major character trait of William Harper "Johnny" Littlejohn in the Doc Savage novels. Throughout the series, Johnny was always careful to use regular words around Doc Savage, mainly because Doc would have understood everything he was saying so it wouldn't have been any fun. The other members of the team also suspected that he often used his big words incorrectly, and didn't want Doc to catch him at it. His tendency to use big words also bit him in the ass once. He was captured by a group of criminals, whose sadistic leader had no patience with Johnny's vocabulary. Johnny was warned that if he used a single big word while answering questions, he'd get the beating of a lifetime. Sure enough, Johnny forgets and uses a big word...and an absolutely brutal beatdown ensues.

Eugene on Adventures in Odyssey speaks this way to the point of hilarity or exasperation, depending on who he's speaking to.

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) more than any other incarnation, Donatello is guilty of this. He frequently geeks out about future technology or the chemical properties of things he runs across, and Techno Babble ensues. One of the others (usually Michelangelo, but occasionally Raphael) acknowledges this, and usually asks him to repeat himself in English this time. Though sometimes the writers sacrifice snappier dialogue to remind us that he's the smart one:

V of V for Vendetta introduces himself like this, complete with oodles of alliteration. He calms down eventually, but still speaks very intelligently. It's pretty epic, and implies that somebody pillaged a thesaurus a few times, specifically, the sections of a thesaurus between the letters "U" and "W".

Valve's Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator (Gravity Gun) from Half-Life 2, and Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (Portal Gun) from Portal, as well as many of the utterances of the Genetic Lifeform and Disc Operating System from the latter title. The latter partially comes from the Aperture Science folk wanting to stick their name in front of everything (Aperture Science Material Emancipation Grill, Aperture Science High-Energy Pellet, Aperture Science Vital Apparatus Vent, etc).
Dr. Kleiner is likewise rather prone to communicating in this manner, especially when the nature of his audience makes it inappropriate.
Aperture Science in general loves this trope. Fifteen Hundred Megawatt Aperture Science Heavy Duty Super-Colliding Super Button anyone?

Hamlet spoofs it with the character Osric, who desperately tries to look intelligent by talking this way. Hamlet mocks him by going even farther over the top with it. As you might imagine, a Shakespeare speech that's deliberately written to be obtuse and impenetrable is quite something to witness.
Polonius and his love of speaking many words! "Brevity is the soul of wit," indeed.
And the Archbishop in Henry V, whose loquaciousness over Henry's right to the French crown is usually played for laughs, but also hides the reality that Henry's claim to the English crown was almost as weak (his father having been an usurper)

As part of an effort to appear more intelligent than he is, Cobra Commander can often be found using very advanced words, especially if Larry Hama happens to be writing the story. Perhaps the greatest use of this was in a Transformers vs. GI Joe comic wherein he called Zarana "steatopygous" (i.e. she has a big butt).

One character encountered early in Baldur's Gate II speaks like this, and uses it as evidence that he is more intelligent than everyone around him. If your own character has a high enough Intelligence score, you can insinuate (in a similarly roundabout, verbose way) that you think he does so to make up for a rather private "deficiency" on his part.

Tom in The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan is practically defined by this trope, to the point where his siblings have commented more than once about how they wished he'd speak English. Also in "The Greek Caper", Tom was about to offer his suggestion on how to search for missing statue and was gently told by Alan to "keep it simple". Henry lampshades this in the comic book adaptation of "To Catch A Pitcher":

Enchanted Forest Chronicles
The nerdy magician Telemain always talks like this, with Morwen usually having to translate for him. However, when he is glared at hungrily by Kazul, a sentient dragon, he manages to speak normally, albeit very very slowly.
Also used in Dealing with Dragons of the same series, in regards to a book on the Caves of Fire and Night. At the end, Morwen says something about how the magic had worked, and Cimorene exclaims, "Just the way that impossible book says!" and Morwen responds, "Demontmorency? Yes, I suppose he is fairly impossible."

Drax of Guardians of the Galaxy has a wide vocabulary and sometimes speaks in unnecessarily big words. In a bit of delicious Irony, the word "thesaurus" is apparently not part of this vocabulary, as he takes offense at being called a "walking thesaurus."

Taken to ridiculous extremes in the fan-made Phylomortis RPG Maker games where every single character spoke in nothing but big words... including children no older than six years old. Even the in-game tutorials abused this. That, coupled with their Nintendo Hardness made the series inaccessible to all but the most dedicated gamers. The sole gimmick of the game was its ridiculous standard of vocabulary, however, so it's safe to say that its target audience (however small) was indeed captured. Not just the characters. Most of the menu commands and system dialogue, too. Most games would be content with ending a battle with "Victory!" or "You won the battle!" Phylomortis capped it off with "You mercilessly slew the obnoxious foe..."

Both Calvin and Hobbes from Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes are known for having particularly verbose discussions with each other. This is occasionally mentioned, such as in the Tenth Anniversary Collection, in contrast with his usual failing grades at school.
He must obey the inscrutable exhortations of his soul.
He once wrote a book report entitled "The Dynamics of Interbeing and Monological Imperatives in Dick And Jane: A Study in Psychic Transrelational Gender Modes."
What if someone calls us a pair of pathetic peripatetics?
Calvin likes to use this to insult the school bully in a way he knows Moe won't understand.

Power Rangers
Billy on the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers spoke like this; every time he said anything, everyone looked expectantly at Trini until she translated. However, when the situation became truly dire, he sometimes lapsed into regular speech; whether this meant he used big words to show off intelligence or the show had bad writers was never explained. This tended to get phased out as the seasons went on, as if his hanging out with the other teens helped him pick up their speech habits (or possibly because Trini had left). Ironically, most people watching the show on TV could understand him fine, or at least guess the intent of his statements by context. It's only in-universe that everybody but Trini is left utterly confused. The best example of this is "Life's A Masquerade" when he gives the Morphing Call for the first time. Instead of the standard "It's Morphin' Time" Billy-Speak turns it into "It's time for Molecular Transmutation." However, by Season 3, he called out a standard "It's Morphin' Time".
Power Rangers RPM's'' Dr. K does this on occasion (i.e. when she's not being blunt), including to hilarious effect in "Ghosts" when she threatens her leader, Colonel Truman, with inserting laxative into his coffee mug, which would lead to a case of explosive diarrhea.
In Power Rangers Ninja Storm, Monster of the Week Boxing Bop-a-roo had such a bad case of this that Lothor indirectly accused him of making up Perfectly Cromulent Words by starting a "Made-Up Word Jar". On top of that, many other characters suffered from the fact that he Got Me Doing It.

One episode of WordGirl involves a villain using Applied Phlebotinum to cause random people to use large words in order to sell dictionaries. Wordgirl surprisingly averted this in one episode when she says that it's more important to use good words than big words.

The nonfictional portion of The Science of Discworld points out that without the use of "privatives" in language — terms for the absence of things, such as "dark" (no light), "cold" (lack of heat), or "sober" (a state of non-intoxication) — everyone would have to talk like this.

Ed Wiskoskinote Real name William Edward Wiskoski, aka the AWA's Col. DeBeers, one of wrestling's many teachers-turned-wrestlers, would cut promos using this kind of language when he and "Playboy" Buddy Rose were teaming in the old NWA Pacific Northwest territory, and Rose would sum up the promo by saying, "What he basically said, for everyone who didn't understand, is we're going to kick everybody's ass."

The Gnomes as a whole from World of Warcraft tend to do this, best exemplified by some of their jokes and flirt emotes.
In Battle For Azeroth, this even stretches to the ability names of a tribe of gorillas who have been feeding on kaja'mite; a mineral substance discovered by goblins that enhances intellect. The rank-and-file use an ability called Parabolic Excrementnote Hurling their crap at you while the tribe's leader - King Da'ka - often uses one called Locomotion Via Ballistic Trajectory... which is just a copy of the Warrior's Heroic Leap.

Perceptor, of The Transformers. It's particularly bad when your fellow robots, all of whom would likely have the whole of a given language in their databanks, ask you to say something "in [language], please". It probably doesn't help that he has a habit of going into details WHILE using complex words, to the point where Optimus tires of it in seconds.
Grimlock also does it when he get smart in the episode "Grimlock's New Brain".
I, Grimlock, after being gifted with remarkable intelligence, also speak in this manner in the mirror universe.
Highbrow is also guilty of this, in "The Rebirth".
Oddly enough, Brainstorm, who was the actual smart guy of the team, spoke fairly commonly unless he actually needed the jargon.
You don't wanna get Genius Ditz Bulkhead from Transformers Animated talking about space bridges. You'll miss Perceptor.
Across all series, Call a Rabbit a "Smeerp" is in effect and machine-related terms with elements of the Cybertronian life-cycle mixed in are always used. This can leave characters who are not supposed to be geniuses talking as if the X-Men's Beast taught them English on the way in. They're not parents, they're "protoform batch initiators." Even the show's tagline, "More Than Meets the Eye", can be given onscreen as "more than meets the optic sensors."

As Brainstorm (a "sea food platter with a rather high IQ", as he puts it), Ben 10 is prone to using extremely large words. With a British accent. His previous "smart form", Greymatter, tended to use words of a more normal size unless referring to scientific principles.

Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory talks like this all the time. Any of the four main geeks do this often, mostly between themselves or colleagues when discussing theories or projects, but are quick to drop it around Penny as to include her... well, except for Sheldon, but he expects people to accommodate him in any situation, and will complain about having to do so for others.
Sheldon even talks like this when he's speaking to Penny about simple everyday things; he usually ends up having to put things in Layman's Terms for her and never seems to realize that he should have just done so in the first place.

The Ultimate Warrior was also famous for this, interspersing feral snarling, grunting, and shouting with long, rambling promos peppered with million-dollar words used almost-correctly. In his later years, he even started throwing in words he made up out of whole cloth, apparently believing his character motivations to be too complex to explain in the English language as it stands.

Rose Lalonde from Homestuck. She wrote a game FAQ entirely using this and Purple Prose, just for one example.
An eventual character corresponding to her via IM services, Kanaya, has just as big of a vocabulary if not moreso, and applies it in a less purple and more literal way.
Equius falls victim to this from time to time.
Eridan also appears to have quite an extensive vocabulary, and is not hesitant to show it.
And Kankri blows them all out of the water. He rarely has anything to say that isn't at least a few pages long, leaving the poor Karkat completely speechless upon their first meeting in [S] ACT 6 INTERMISSION 3.
Aranea too, as well as Vriska. It's apparently a common trait among Light aspect players, which is fitting, because Light seems to be about information.

Megabyte Beagle on two occasions in the DuckTales (1987) TV movienote later shown in the actual series as a 5-part episode Super DuckTales. On both, he would eventually be told to "say it in Beagle talk".

People with a Romance language (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese...) as a first language can sometimes unintentionally sound like this when speaking English. Modern English results from a combination of Germanic and Romancenote mostly from medieval French roots. While words from Germanic roots are shorter and more common, Romance words are longer and more formal, but, since they're closer from their own language, Romance-language speakers sometimes instinctively choose them. Conversely, they often miss the point when confronted with a loquacious fictional character, wondering why, say, Reed Richards reads like their butcher.

Vaarsuvius from The Order of the Stick, especially early on.
In the prequel book On the Origin of PCs, Roy has a go at it himself to convince Vaarsuvius that he's not just a big, dumb fighter who wants to suborn the smart guy by hiring him.
For obvious reasons Vaarsuvius is an exception to the usual Talking Is a Free Action rule.
But even then, no matter how long-winded he/she gets, it's still only a standard action at worst, comparable to casting a spell. Observe.

Massey Reinstein in Schlock Mercenary uses this trope to intimidate Schlock in one strip. It works.
Equally fun is a few strips earlier, when Ebbirnoth describes having had his only (grapefruit-sized) eye shot off, and the effects of the drug cocktail he was given to keep the pain under control.

Played for laughs in I Must Be Going, an installment of Skyhold Academy Yearbook, in which Varric reads a Real-Person Fic he's penned. He uses smaragdine to describe one character's green eyes, and the students listening to the story object to the inclusion of such a ridiculous word. As one of them says, "I don't think that's a real word. Or if it is, it shouldn't be." (It is. It's used to describe something as being emerald green.)

Parodied to the extreme with Lucky's three-page monologue in Waiting for Godot. Read through it carefully and there is actually a philosophical point being made, but it is embroidered with so much verbal diarrhea, non-sequiturs and just sheer nonsense words that it sounds like a complete load of gibberish.

Captain Hook from Peter Pan & the Pirates speaks so eloquently that many adults watching it would have a hard time understanding what he's referring to half the time. Fortunately he manages to make his meaning clear as most of the time he speaks when angry and insulting his crew. Despite being a pirate it doesn't come across as out of place thanks to the Victorian era gentleman style he has.

Cerebus the Aardvark features a character known only as "The Judge", who may just be the walking incarnation of this trope. A seemingly omnipotent being, the judge never actually does anything with his limitless powers and knowledge because he is too busy making long, long, LONG expository speeches using very big words. How long? In his first appearance, he speaks uninterrupted for five. straight. issues.
Though to be fair, he IS telling the history of the creation and eventual destruction of the world. These things take time.
In a later issue, The Judge appears out of thin air to inform Death that he is about to die. And also that he is actually not Death at all, just delusional. It takes him more words to tell him this than the entire word count of the previous two issues combined. Leading to a Crowning Moment of Funny when "Death's" only response to this verbal tsunami is to say "Well, fuck me," and die.
Parmoorians have a well-deserved reputation for long-windedness. "Cerebus usually passes the time counting adverbs."

In the Young Wizards series, the wizardry manuals are given to insanely complicated language; it's mind-boggling how an eleven-year-old girl can even hope to understand it. "Temporospatial claudication" indeed! Not unjustified, as these are English translations from a language which was designed from the ground up to describe the (actual, speculative, and alternative) workings of The Multiverse... or more accurately, reality reflects the language. In the first book, the girl spends around a week of study trying to understand the Speech well enough to even cast a simple spell. I'd imagine a year or two spent seriously studying what's basically a truly comprehensive and utterly accurate multidisciplinary textbook whose contents constantly reorganize to be exactly what its owner is currently most suited to learn... could produce mind-boggling results, indeed.

In the Hacker Diaries, the fictional diaries of Jim Hacker and novelization of the Yes, Minister series, it is stated that he lived out the last of his days in a home for the elderly deranged when "advancing years, without in any way impairing his verbal fluency, disengaged the operation of his mind from the content of his speech."

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword brings us Beedle the shopkeeper. Talk to him in the day when he's doing his job, and he speaks like every other NPC out there. However, if talk to him at night, when he's not on duty, he suddenly talks in a highly affected accent and starts using words like "tenebrous." If you bring it up to him, he brushes you off.

A Series of Unfortunate Events: Meta-fictional example: books are only written in this type of prose. Actually one of the characters think it's less difficult to say "hum" when an unusual word shows up rather than looking it up, with surprisingly good results.

Doctor Emmett Brown from Back to the Future does this occasionally, though it seems to be limited to his past self from the 50's, implying Doc mellowed out at some point over the intervening 30 years. The Animated Series on the other hand, took this trait into overdrive (See "Western Animation" below).

Novelist Thomas Mann was, depending on your point of view, famed or notorious for his long and complex sentences. It was joked that for him and his admirers a German sentence less than a half-page long was no proper sentence. For instance, the first sentence of Mann's Confessions of Felix Krull consists of 72 words in the original German. However, when Mann gave a public reading it was very easy to keep track of what he was trying to get across. Leo Tolstoy was a big influence on Mann's work, and that is probably at least a partial explanation, since this trope shows up often in Tolstoy's works, too.

Jupiter Jones, of The Three Investigators, employs this method of verbal communication habitually, although not necessarily invariably. And the Archbishop in Henry V, whose loquaciousness over Henry's right to the French crown is usually played for laughs, but also hides the reality that Henry's claim to the English crown was almost as weak (his father having been an usurper).

An episode of Cow and Chicken has the duo being visited by their black sheep cousin, the Black Sheep, whom everybody treats like a troublemaker. They do so partly because they assume he's a bad person out of stereotypical expectation, and partly because they don't understand his intelligent diction and think he's insulting them. Cow is the only person who's able to see past the ridiculous assumptions.
This also happens to Cow herself in an episode where she gets glasses and somehow becomes a genius.

Doctor Henry McCoy (a.k.a. Beast of the X-Men) does this all the time. In most incarnations, it's for the joy of wordplay — everyone he works with already knows he's a genius — though it undoubtedly has a side effect of convincing people he's never met before that even mutants who look like him can possess an enormous vocabulary. Interestingly, in his earliest appearances in the X-Men comic, he was not portrayed as particularly intelligent. However, Stan Lee decided his behavior too closely resembled the Thing from the Fantastic Four, and upgraded his intelligence and vocabulary in order to set him apart.
And he does it with insults, too; "go suck eggs" becomes:
The X-Men Noir version of the Beast, while genuinely intelligent (but not to the exaggerated levels of the normal one), goes out of his way to use larger words that he doesn't quite understand because it gives him a stronger air of intelligence.

It's a good idea to keep a dictionary open in another tab while reading A Different Lesson. That said, the…uncommon words are used correctly, and in almost all cases are actually more of a precise fit than their everyday equivalents. In-story, this also applies to Chao's speech patterns because he's from an earlier time.

Guile from Chrono Cross (almost) always speaks like this.
The way he talks about finding a ferryman and a boat to get across the sea is rather wordy.
His speech about his 'thirst' for enigmas gets pretty long-winded.

The flavor text for the Magic: The Gathering card Uktabi Kong, apparently meant to convey that he's smarter than the average ape: "I desire the acquisition of a potassium-rich fruit comestible of substantial magnitude." It's a parody of the much loved (and hated) flavor text on Odyssey's Gorilla Titan: "I wanna banana this big!"

Kruppe from the Malazan Book of the Fallen loves to talk in long-winded, complicated sentences stuffed full of words his immediate audience is likely to trip over. He also talks in the third person about himself. Several characters tend to zone out as soon as he opens his mouth. It is part of his Obfuscating Stupidity act, though.

Parodied in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), which includes the line "We have traced the roots of Shakespeare's symbolism in the context of a pre-Nietzschean society through the totality of a jejune circular relationship of form, contrasted with a complete otherness of metaphysical cosmologies, and the ethical mores entrenched in the collective subconscious of an agrarian race". The published version of the script contains a footnote: "Don't bother reading that sentence over again. It's covering a costume change and is completely meaningless".

In Bookworm, the whole point of the game is to get the player into this way of speaking so as to score higher. Lex the bookworm in Bookworm Adventures often speaks like this; this is, in fact, the whole point of the game, as the longer words you spell, the more damage you inflict on your enemies. There's also the game's finale, where Lex actually uses a slightly shorter version of one of the words mentioned in the trope description to deliver the final blow. See here (major spoiler warning!).

SlipKnot may not be the most sophisticated band in terms of music and subject matter, but that doesn't prevent Corey Taylor from inserting esoteric euphemisms and terminology into otherwise profane and virulently anguished lyrical output. It also provides a stark contrast to their designated contemporaries KoRn, whose lead vocalist Johnathan Davis seldom uses words containing more than two syllables.

And speaking of John Cleese, in the Fawlty Towers episode, "The Hotel Inspectors," he finds himself having to contend with a guest whose use of flowery, overcomplicated language renders him nearly incomprehensible. Representative quote:
In "Communication Problems", Polly gets rid of the pushy, selectively deaf Mrs. Richards by asking Manuel to "lend her your assistance in connection with her reservation", knowing that Manuel won't understand.

In Superman & Batman: Generations, Lex Luthor says he managed to travel through time with a portal "generated when acetylsalicylic acid is irradiated at a 108 megahertz frequency"...in other words, he "irradiated" some aspirin tablets with an FM radio.

Plato from Beetle Bailey has been known to use this, naturally enough since it's part of the stereotype he represents.

In the episode "Ink and Incapability" of Blackadder the Third, Dr. Samuel Johnson, author of the first English dictionary, speaks just like that ("I celebrated last night the encyclopedic implementation of my pre-meditated orchestration of demotic Anglo-Saxon."). Blackadder resorted to using made-up long words to freak Johnson out in retaliation ("Oh, I'm sorry, sir. I'm anaspeptic, frasmotic, even compunctuous to have caused you such pericombobulation.").

Doctor Who:
The Sixth Doctor took this to ridiculous lengths — and in Pip and Jane Baker scripts, most other characters would start talking like this as well.
Pip and Jane Baker were really fond of the phrase "fortuitous would be a more apposite epithet". The Master uses it in "The Mark of the Rani" as well. Of course, the Master as played by Anthony Ainley was always prone to thesaurus abuse.
The Sixth Doctor's talent for sounding like he swallowed a thesaurus and a full meal of cured pork haunch shows up a lot in the Big Finish audio dramas.
Raised to an art form with the audio drama ...ish.
Couple the Sixth Doctor's vocabulary with Gilbert and Sullivan's music and the results are downright hilarious, as evidenced in Part 3 of the Big Finish audio drama Doctor Who and the Pirates. Can anyone say "I am the Very Model of a Gallifreyan Buccaneer"?
Early Eighties companion Adric does this a couple of times in "Four to Doomsday". Early in the story, he refers to the Milky Way galaxy as "Galaxia Kyklos"; Tegan thinks he's talking about somewhere in Corfu until the Doctor tells her that "Adric's just showing off". Later, while sharing a meal with the Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa, Adric asks if anyone will "pass the sodium chloride", by which he means salt.

Gaston Means from Boardwalk Empire. Just for example, instead of "your shoelace is untied", he says "Your left shoelace is in a state of dishabille." The show has several other examples: Arnold Rothstein, Nelson Van Alden, Andrew Mellon and Valentin Narcisse, but none of them are as bad as Means.

Wordy villain Cat R. Waul in An American Tail: Fievel Goes West is often wont to spit out long lines of English loquaciousness, and is often forced to describe his intent in simpler terms. He's voiced by John Cleese. Coincidence?... No.

Speech like this is the key joke in many Monty Python's Flying Circus sketches. John Cleese is known to use this in other roles he has held since.
In the "Cheese Shop" sketch, the customer alternates between Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness and slangy Yorkshire translations: in a subtle Shout-Out, Cleese's lines "Ee, I were all 'ungry, lahk" and "Ah lahk a nice choon, yer forced to" are actually in a more-or-less Yorkshire (Oop North) dialect because Michael Palin, who plays the shopkeeper, is originally from Sheffield in Yorkshire, although Palin's character (and indeed Palin generally) doesn't speak in a Yorkshire accent.

Luke Atmey from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Trials and Tribulations combines this with a flair for descriptions that are over-dramatic to the point of obtuseness. Phoenix can usually only manage a rough translation, usually for the benefit of Maya, who is more often totally lost.
Also Redd White's fantabulous vocabulosity!
And Valant Gramarye, who combines this with alliteration. Apollo even notes that "his overly loquacious manner can get annoying".
Wesley Stickler and his penchant for using twenty words to say what that can be said in five deserves a mention too.

In Stark's War, the worst of the officers Stark deals with speak in a sort of hybrid of abstract military theory and management jargon, dressing some very dumb ideas in very complicated language. Just so long as it sounds impressive, that means they're all military geniuses, right?

When Ledo wakes up on the eponymous fleet in Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, his mecha needs to analyze the language of the natives. To do so, Ledo grabs the nearest girl, runs away with her on his shoulder, and, just to make her talk some more, touches her ass. What follows is translated by Chamber to be about "reproduction with one's mother, as well as sanctified excrement".

Brian Pillman used to engage in a bit of this. For example, on the October 30, 1995 WCW Monday Nitro, in the promo where Chris Benoit was drafted into the Horsemen, Pillman ranted about how Sting "regaled [his] obsequious lapdogs with [his] reprehensible act."note The night before, at WCW Halloween Havoc 95, Ric Flair had turned heel on Sting in a match against Pillman and Arn Anderson, thus creating a new version of the Horsemen.

In The Matrix Reloaded, the Architect's dialogue is extremely convoluted and highbrow-sounding, as if the writers deliberately mined a thesaurus for the longest synonyms they could find for every concept he's describing. Justified in that this artificial intelligence is, unlike any other AI, utterly logic/reason-based and lacking in any kind of empathy or social skills (the polar opposite of the Oracle) and uses speech as a type of Intimidation Demonstration. He does seem amused when Neo calls him on using it to avoid a dirct question, saying his predecessors took longer to figure it out. Parodied so brilliantly by Will Ferrell in this video from the MTV Movie Awards.

Spoofed in the episode "Woodland Critter Christmas", where Mousey the Mouse is a parody of the stock "Smart" character in cartoons, complete with comically large glasses and a slavish adherence to this trope.

American Gods: There's a heroic example with Mr. Ibis, which makes sense, since he's Thoth, the Egyptian god of wisdom.

Mr. Longface Caterpillar from the 2009 Strawberry Shortcake movie peppers his speech with overly fancy words, which are translated by Blueberry Muffin.

Marcus from Ninja Pizza Girl is absurdly well-spoken and loves bombastic turns of phrase. In a stroke of Irony, the story arc he's part of revolves around him becoming lost for words whenever he tries to confess his feelings for Giselle.

Christopher Paolini apparently feels the need to use a thesaurus at all times with the Inheritance Cycle, sparking copious mixed opinions from readers. Some find his writing captivating and interesting, while others basically write it off as a load of crap. Either way, you can't argue that he follows this trope to the letter, and younger readers may want to keep a dictionary open while traversing his prose.

Volteer from The Legend of Spyro talks like this, often to the annoyance of the other Dragon Guardians and Sparx, though Spyro somehow has no problem understanding him. Example:
another one from Volteer:
Bentley from the original series did this. Or at least, the one from Spyro 3 did.
Why, you brazenly avaricious duplicitous, larcenous ursine!

Judge Holden from Blood Meridian speaks in very precise English filled with archaic legal terms and sometimes excessively formal language (always referring to others as "principals," for instance). Sometimes he just knows exactly the words to say what he means, but just as often he's speaking to intimidate and confuse the mostly-illiterate louts in his gang.

Family Guy:
This trope was subverted in a gag where Peter was watching one of Dennis Miller’s famous rants.
Stewie does this in the early series; it was even lampshaded by Brian in "Back to the Pilot", where Brian asks Present Stewie if he used a dictionary when he was Past Stewie.
Peter develops this trait afer he embarks on a journey of self-improvement and returns home as a scholar. His family has no idea what he's talking about.

Walter "Ramses" Emerson in Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series tends to embody this trope through his younger years, though he (mostly) grows out of it by around age 20, as stated by Amelia in Guardian of the Horizon. Amelia herself could actually fit this trope in many regards, although it may be more her old-fashioned manner of narration than excessive verbosity.

In Tarzan of the Apes, Professor Porter considers that using the term "lion" rather than "quadruped of the genus FELIS" to be slang. Eventually his secretary, Mr Philander, complains about his overly fussy attitide, and the professor replies "Look here, Skinny Philander, if you are lookin' for a scrap, peel off your coat and come on down on the ground, and I'll punch your head just as I did sixty years ago in the alley back of Porky Evans' barn." Philander is relieved that his old friend is still there under all the pomp.

The infamous The Eye of Argon uses absurdly obscure words whenever possible, sometimes whimsicorically making them up outright. It also uses even normal words incorrectly (grammatically AND semantically), when it manages to even spell them right. "Many-fauceted scarlet emerald" is a particularly... colorful... example. The extremely-thinly-veiled discussion of the hero's current hit points also comes to mind.

How I Met Your Mother:
The group have a conversation about Robin's new Argentinean boyfriend who can't speak English that well. When he arrives at the bar, they continue the conversation, but with longer words so he doesn't understand (he doesn't: he thinks they're talking about baseball). Funny, because their responses weren't all that different from before:
The part of the conversation right before this, that is Robin explaining that she still likes Gael, includes the lines:
Ted talks like this all the time, especially during the college flashbacks, because he is — in the other characters' own words — douchy like that. And his on-again/off-again high school/college girlfriend, Karen, talks like this all the time too.
Also in "Old King Clancy" while talking about GNB's firing room, the ETR, or Employee Transition Room:

The Bob & Ray character Dr. Eugene Stapley, the 'Word Wizard', is a broad parody of this trope... at times possibly just a bit broader than intended. After Bob suggests 'plunging straight into the mail': "Male and female serve only to differentialize one type of living creature from another. Now, undoubtedly some male members of the animal kingdom would be softer, say, to plunge into than others; but in any coincidence, the act of literally plunging into the male would in all probabilitiness be injureful!"

Frasier:
A lot of humor comes from Niles and especially Frasier speaking very formally:
Daphne's boorish brother Simon can be pretty flowery as well, either naturally or possibly in a Stealth Parody of Frasier. Normally such a character would have Delusions of Eloquence, but he's perfectly capable of the real thing.

Genshiken uses this for its Idiosyncratic Episode Naming. This is done as if the episodes were a college thesis paper; it's done for the whole first season — hinted to be done by the President (who might or might not have cameras hidden everywhere) — while more normal episode naming is done during season two.

Kingdom Hearts
Luxord from makes his entrance declaring the Heartless boss he summons a "veritable maelstrom of avarice".
In Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, he combines this trope with alliteration and a hefty amount of gambling-related puns.
Every character whose consciousness derives (either fully or partially) from a Xehanort will inevitably resort to this, usually for the purpose of monologuing. Master Xehanort gets to deliver a particularly-sesquipedalian two-word insult - "Feckless neophyte" - though the rest of the Xehanort incarnations each have their own chance to try their hands at it.

Promos are a good way for a wrestler to build his/her character, explain their motivations, etc. Some will occasionally slip into this. And then you have John Morrison, who always talks like this, seemingly rambling on and segueing from topic to topic without any real connection to the original topic whatsoever. Which is made to be even more ridiculous when compared to his (former) tag team partner, "The Miz", who speaks in a very basic fashion (who used the Marine rallying cry "OOO-RAH!" as a period)note Which makes no sense since he was never actually in the Marines. Morrison is a blatant Captain Ersatz of Jim Morrison who tended to talk like this in interviews.

Dexter on Dexter's Laboratory is fond of doing this. Notable examples include making a to-do list that included the chore "Aquatic Nutrifacation" instead of "Feed Fish". He also refers to the wheels on a car as "High Output Torquifiers". Unique in that this is how a young boy would actually do something like this, as "nutrification" and "torquifiers" are not actually words, just suffixes hastily slapped on thesaurus-poop.
