* Gingers. In Europe where they originate, especially Western Europe, they're often ridiculed and seen as unattractive due to the age-old superstition that red hair is demonic. In North America however, gingers have no ingrained stigma against them and they're [[HeroesWantRedheads often fetishized]], due in no small part to their rarity.

** In studies, the most fluent speakers outside of the U.S. and the U.K. come from the Netherlands or the Nordic nations. In fact, the Netherlands have shown that 90% of the population can speak English fluently, even more so than Canada. (Granted, French is another language in Canada.)

(Granted, bilingual French/English signage and labeling is required by law in most provinces and pretty widespread even where not actually required, so a Canadian who speaks no English but only French is another language capable of at least getting by in Canada.most of the country.)

** Don't forget potatoes, which invert the above by being NewWorld plants popular in the Old World. Native to the mountains of the Andes, we humans spread them across the world because they grow well in cool, wet climates.

* Many kinds of crops and livestock have been fundamental to economies far away from their origins. Several Old World species (wheat, sugarcane, grapes, bananas, coffee, cotton, citrus fruits, bananas, cattle and sheep) have been most extensively produced by NewWorld countries (sheep in Australia & New Zealand, cotton in the DeepSouth, sugar in the Caribbean, etc).

* While mermaids are decently popular in the US, they're even more popular in Japan, to the point that they're one of the largest non-western markets for mermaid-themed media. Case in point: among the country's post popular movies and manga are the mermaid themed ''Anime/{{Ponyo|On The Cliff By The Sea}}'' and ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' respectively. Meanwhile, [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Tokyo Disney Sea]] has made a "Mermaid Lagoon" port about Disney's ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' characters for actual tourist entrance in Japan only, to much acclaim.

* When going to most European countries, Americans tend to hear "Pretend you're Canadian" as the American [[CulturalCringe stereotype themselves as rude tourists]]. A rare caveat exists in the form of "not among younger Germans, especially in the former West Germany". Germans do actually find American visitors awesome and are quite friendly to them. In Berlin, this is cranked up to 11 as even eastern Berliners are remarkably grateful to for all that the United States did during the cold war. Expect to be asked if they can practice their English with you.

* ''Blockbuster Video'': While the American physical branch was closed in 2013, the franchise is still strong in Mexico, partly because Mexicans haven't embraced the video-on-demand services as much as Americans have, albeit this is startin to change and Blockbuster changed his named in Mexico to The B Store.
