** With both Superman and Wonder Woman, DC has tried to downplay this over the last several years when it has been seen as unfashionable to be patriotic (and in the case of Superman Returns, could potentially impact his international box office sales).

** In a one off story, Superman once mentioned that he was planning on renouncing his American citizenship [[note]] though it was mainly because his actions were being interpreted as official US policy due to his longstanding mostly solid relationship with the US government.[[/note]] A story showed up very quickly afterwards where Superman expressed his love of America, as an alien whom America adopted like so many others.

* ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'' character Terryman (based on real life wrestler Wrestling/TerryFunk) has been the epitome of this in fiction for decades. Interestingly enough, he started off as the same type of character as [=JBL=] (representing the big business side of America that other countries sees as [[ForeignWrestlingHeel evil]]), but then mellowing out and playing this trope to the highest degree ever since. His son, [[Anime/KinnikumanNisei Terry the Kid]] also plays this trope to a T. ...tK.

* Jack Burton of ''BigTroubleInLittleChina'' is a DeconstructiveParody of this. Burton sports a JamesDean pompadour and drawls like JohnWayne, but lives up to these iconic images of American masculinity with less than perfect aplomb. Overconfident and always slightly behind the information curve, his bombast sometimes pays off, but more often makes him the butt of a slapstick gag. For a light comic performance, KurtRussell walks a very precise tightrope, giving Jack a puppyish quality that redeems his made-in-America arrogance. The audience roots for him to succeed, and to be taken down a peg or two along the way.

* Wrestling/SaraDelRey was a mixed bag in Luchas 2000 and LLF but a straight example in Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} with her American Angel gimmick before her FaceHeelTurn.
** It amusingly ended up being played straight in LLF, as American Angel, April Hunter, Nikki "La Gringa" Roxx and Christie Ricci and all became crowd favorites, Wrestling/DaizeeHaze being over the moment she debuted. It just took American Angel longer than the others.
** Crowds even chanted "USA" at Del Rey during Wrestling/RingOfHonor's UK shows, against native UK talent Eden Black and Jetta even.

* [[Wrestling/ChrisHero Big]] In [[Wrestling/ColtCabana USA]] are a completely straight and beloved example. What makes it surreal is that they operate in the Japan based Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH.
