** Popular and well-loved mascot character in Japan, thanks in part to being a cute dog who happens to be marketed by {{Creator/Sanrio}}. Unfortunately, most Japanese seem unaware that the main character of the series is his ''owner'', despite the strip's long-running and faithful translation, which gets printed daily in Japanese newspapers and has numerous compilation books in both English and Japanese. He has also gotten everything from his own caf&eacute to special donuts at Mr. Donut Japan. Because of how popular Snoopy is there, [[WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie the recent movie in the franchise]] was retitled "I Love Snoopy", was released a week after the American release and was shown in 4D, which normally doesn't happen often in Japan.

* In Creator/ChrisClaremont's first ''ComicBook/XMen'' run, the X-Men were well-received in Japan, despite being hated and feared in their native USA. Little Japanese girls were even shown to idolize {{Storm}}.

*** In Brazil, aside from a [[ThePeteBest short-lived republication comic]], the very first magazine of the publisher of Disney comics, Abril, was a Donald Duck one in 1950. The title still runs, the usual comics digest size is referred to as "duck format", and Donald is the centerpiece of the Disney comics advertisement (along with UncleScrooge) in lieu of Mickey. As Abril became a huge media conglomerate, its founder parodied Walt Disney's declaration that "I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing that it was all started by a mouse." by saying "It all started with a duck".

* A famous example are the {{Disney}} Comics. Largely faded out of American culture (especially once WDC&S went into the prestige format, and it started to be marketed to collectors rather than children, in general making it really hard to get besides actually subscribing), these continue to be produced in most other areas of the world, especially Europe, where they continue to outsell SuperHero comics. More specifically, relatively obscure characters can get their own books (such as Italy's love for Clarabelle Cow), or familiar ones can get very different interpretations; Mickey as a gritty detective, Donald as a GentlemanThief (see ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures''), Goofy as a Comicbook/{{Superman}} parody, etc. This may be related to their look, which is closer to old FrancoBelgianComics than to American comics. Another possibility in some countries is a long history of '''really good''' {{Woolseyism}}.

* {{ComicBook/WITCH}} was made by the Italian division of an [[{{Disney}} American company]], but is ''huge'' in Scandinavia - to the point that most of the ExpandedUniverse is created by Danish writers. (Lene Kaaberbøl and Josefine Ottesen)

* The ''[[TheTransformersIDW Transformers]]'' comics published by IDW feature street-racing samurai-type Drift, who is often accused of being a CreatorsPet, if not an out-and-out Japan-fanboy MarySue. Japanese fans seem to ''adore'' the guy, if the amount of fanart from there is of any indication. Of course, they don't actually get IDW's comics in Japan, and [[MerchandiseDriven Drift's toy itself]] is considered decent. When WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise used a design more similar to the Movie's interpretation of Drift, his toy got a Japanese exclusive retooling to make him look more like his original self.
