* The Super Scope failed tidily in Japan but lingered on in North America, leading industry legend Gunpei Yokoi's team to create the English-only [[BattleClash Metal Combat: Falcon's Revenge]]. Super Scope is then documented to be modified for homebrew military infantry training application.

* The UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem wasn't really much of a success in its homeland of Japan, the United States or Germany due to Nintendo's dominance in those three countries. It held its own against the NES in United Kingdom and Portugal, did the same against Famiclones in South Korea, and was even more successful in Brazil, where it's still supported today. Many of Sega's games for the technically identical UsefulNotes/GameGear were ported to the system in the 1990s for European and/or Brazilian release after it had been discontinued in the US and Japan.

** However, Ryoma Niitsuma, the developer of ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', notes that than if he had more development time, [[http://iplaywinner.com/news/2010/10/23/niitsuma-disconfirms-characters-for-mvc3-but-gives-some-hope.html Jon would have been his pick for the series' fourth rep.]] [[note]]For reference, the three ''Darkstalkers'' characters in ''[=MvC3=]'' are {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s Morrigan, Felicia, and Hsien-Ko.[[/note]] Perhaps his fans may be [[ThrowTheDogABone getting a bone thrown their way]] soon... [[YankTheDogsChain which got cruelly yanked]] the moment ''Ultimate VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom 3'' additions were revealed... and Talbain was nowhere in sight.

** ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' is nowhere near as popular in its home country as it is in Western countries (which it was infamously and ironically [[NoExportForYou never released in]]), due to [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks its drastic departure from the previous games in style and tone]]. Of course, it was also released in 2006 on the GameBoyAdvance, just a few years after the release of the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS...

* Americans regarded ''VideoGame/{{Spelunker}}'' as decent in its arcade and UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}} forms. However, its UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem port, produced in Japan by Creator/{{Irem}}, inexplicably sold extremely well, and now the game is looked back on fondly due to its [[NarmCharm charming badness]] and, most of all, the [[OneHitPointWonder endearing]] [[EverythingTryingToKillYou weakness]] of the main character. In fact, the Spelunker might very well beat out [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Master Chief]], [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life}} Gordon Freeman]], and the like as the best-known American videogame character in Japan simply by virtue of being "the weakest videogame character" -- he's a cultural icon, to the extent that ''supe taishitsu'', "having the constitution of a spelunker," is a common idiom in Japan (meaning, of course, being easily injured) used in professional sports commentary.

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfNewerth'', despite being one of the earliest MOBAs, is significantly less popular than ''VideoGame/Dota2'' and ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' overall, but manages to have a strong fanbase in Thailand. As a result, there are a good number of content that are Thai-related, and even its Grand Finals were held in Thailand.

** Traditionally Nintendo consoles and handhelds always sold better in North America than in Japan, although that has more to do with the fact that North America accounts for a much larger population than Japan. The trend has so far only been averted with the 3DS, which sold more in Japan than in North America.

** In ''Persona4'', Chie is arguably ''the'' most popular main female character in the West. While she's definitely loved on all sides of the world, she's ''especially'' popular in America, no doubt due to being a KickChick ActionGirl who's {{Adorkable}} enough to give [[DragonAgeOrigins Alistair]] a run for his money.

** This actually got to the point to where [[TropesAreNotGood this trope]] delayed the third game from being made for years because there was too little support from Japan itself. However, in the end, western support seemed to have saved the series, and [[ZeroTimeDilemma the final installment]] of the series was not only officially announced at an American convention, but it was also released in the the West days before coming out in Japan.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' is a [[ObviousBeta currently-still-in-alpha]] game about a [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] [[{{Yandere}} crazy]] girl who must [[MurderTheHypotenuse do away with rivals to her crush's love]]. The developer is American and all text/dialogue is in English, so naturally, most Website/YouTube videos showing off the game are in... Spanish and Portuguese. In fact, ''the'' most-viewed [=YanSim=] video is in Spanish. Evidently, the game is extremely popular amongst Mexican and Brazilian [[LetsPlay Let's Players]].
