** 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 [[http://lunawings.tumblr.com/post/135102688523/the-peanuts-movie-was-a-bit-more-exciting-than-i was shown in 4D]], which normally doesn't happen often in Japan.

* ''Africans love [[Recap/TintinTintinInTheCongo Tintin in the Congo]]''. The album is widely considered as Hergé's biggest OldShame for its caricatural and paternalistically racist depiction of Congolese people. Oddly enough, it is quite popular in francophone Africa, and in modern Congo itself in particular. [[http://www.lemonde.fr/afrique/article/2015/09/04/au-congo-tintin-est-une-star_4746163_3212.html Interviews of locals]] show that people don't mind the caricatures there (saying that local caricatures of white people there are in fact ''worse'' than what Hergé made of them), considering them as purely humor, and that Hergé; actually made the country's name world-famous and inspired the country to the point of making it Africa's number one provider of comic book artists. Not to mention the boost it gave to tourism.

** Shuma-Gorath, a Comicbook/DoctorStrange antagonist who was all but forgotten in America when he appeared in ''Marvel Super Heroes''. Shuma became wildly popular with the Japanese, and was added as DLC to ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' for exactly that reason. Venom, on the other hand, while well-known in the US, is ''insanely'' popular in Japan, and it's easy to make the connection between his popularity and his appearances in the CapcomVsWhatever games. Acknowledged in Shuma's ending in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', where he (she? it?) parlays the fame he gained defeating Galactus into a Japanese game show.

* Generally speaking, ArchieComics aren't popular outside North America, but Archie is also a big seller in both India and Mexico. In the Mexican case, it did even get a ''theater play''.

* ''ComicStrip/LittleLulu'' is known to have a significant fanbase in Latin America, particularly in Brazil where an InNameOnly, {{Animesque}} TimeSkip spin-off of sorts was released portraying an alternate depiction of Lulu Moppet and her gang as a modern-day teenager, and in a similar vein to the 2000s ''[[WesternAnimation/HollyHobbieAndFriends Holly Hobbie]]'' reboot, depicts the original Lulu as Teen!Lulu's grandmother.

* 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. The ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye ongoing (of which Drift is a major character) sells well 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.
