* TroubledProduction: As no Japanese studio wanted to fund Kurosawa, he had to work with a Soviet one, Mosfilm. And during the extended 3-year production, basically everything conspired against him.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Soviet producers initially wanted to cast Kurosawa's frequent collaborator, ToshiroMifune, in the role of Dersu, but he refused due to scheduling conflicts and an acrimonious falling-out they had with Kurosawa in 1965. In the end a Soviet actor Maxim Munzuk got the title role.

Examples are not arguable, and don't pothole trope names before the example.
* [[MagicalNativeAmerican Magical Manchukuo Asian]]: Though actually of Nanai ascent, Dersu sometimes fits the role accordingly, seeing the interconnectedness of all things, living in complete harmony with the environment, performing some shamanic medicine and addressing to all living things as "men". By extension, he might fall in the CryingIndian trope as well. Usually for [[HumansAreBastards good reasons]].

* {{Lzherusskie}}: Averted in the film. Though mainly a Japanese production, it featured Russian and native actors for each role, and filmed entirely in Russian and Nanai, in spite of the impact this may [[DoingItForTheArt have in the sales]].
