* To this day Creator/WorkingDesigns and the many changes made during their localizations remain a BaseBreaker in the states. Some people still hold grudges over them. Their releases of the [[Franchise/{{Lunar}} Lunar remakes]] were much adored by Japanese Lunar fans, mainly due to the deluxe packaging, {{Feelies}}, and interface changes. They were the subject of reverse importation. Many game stores sold the English version of Lunar alongside the Japanese version, and the English version of Wind's Nocturne [[MemeticMutation became a meme]].

* Of the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series, in the Western fanbase, ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Thracia 776]]'' are regularly cited as the best and most beloved of the series, despite the fact that [[NoExportForYou neither of them were ever officially released outside Japan]]. Compare to Japan, where not only do they cite [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth's games]] as the best ([[AmericansHateTingle which just confuses]] [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny Western players]] who [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe started]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones later]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius in]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening the]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates series]]), but ''Genealogy'' even got the lowest Famitsu review score of the entire series (though it still sold well and appeared on their best list).

** The character Xigbar is more popular in the West than in the East. His appearance in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' as his other, Braig, helped.

* The OtomeGame ''VisualNovel/CodeRealize'' sold twice as many copies in the states than it did in its native Japan. Especially impressive since it was PlaystationVita exclusive, since the platform [[AmericansHateTingle was a flop outside of Japan]].

* ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' has a bit of it. While Japanese fans have universally hated the ending with it ruining the game for many, Western fans are closer to a BrokenBase, with some actually liking what was made of the game in the end.

* A lot of LucasArts adventure games are quite popular in Germany, especially of the ''VideoGame/ManiacMansion'' and ''VideoGame/DayOfTheTentacle'' variety. A more straightforward example would be ''VideoGame/ZakMcKrackenAndTheAlienMindbenders''. While not unknown in its home country, it was even ''more'' popular in Germany.
** In fact, try looking up a LetsPlay for a LucasArts adventure game, and look how many results are German.
** LucasArts veteran Tim Schafer name-checks Germany as the one viable market for adventure games in the present day in his famous Kickstarter pitch video for ''[[VideoGame/BrokenAge Double Fine Adventure]]''.
** Point and click adventure fangames are quite popular in Germany as well. It's pretty hard to find a fangame based on a LucasArts or Sierra adventure game that doesn't have at least one member of the development team from Germany.

* Kent from ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaOtome Amnesia: Memories]]'' is one of the game's least popular love interests in its home country of Japan and got the [[DemotedToExtra least amount of focus]] in the anime adaptation, but he's the most popular one in the Western fandom with a lot of its fans finding his [[NoSocialSkills social awkwardness]] [[{{Adorkable}} endearing]] and viewing him as the love interest who treats the protagonist the most decently.
