* Averted in ''[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth]''. Autozam represents the United States of America. Yet none of the characters from Autozam are cowboys. Some do wear green berets. And their leader is styled to resemble a bald eagle.

* One old Creator/JackieChan film featured him traveling to America and fighting a bunch of hairy, obese, slovenly cowboys who rolled around in the mud. Knowing how this trope usually connects with reality, it was probably supposed to be set in Chicago or uptown Manhattan.

* Tina from ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' had a [[SexyWhateverOutfit sexed-up cowgirl outfit]] in the first game, and her dad Bass has a full cowboy getup as his default costume in the second. They're both 'Merican, in case you couldn't tell.

* A rare western example with [=McCree=] from Creator/BlizzardEntertainment's ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}''. He's one of two [[spoiler:actually, three]] American characters in a game starring a MultinationalTeam. He also looks and acts like a cowboy, complete with the iconic hat and a six shooter. He even says "It's high noon" when activating his [[ImprobableAimingSkills ultimate]]. Keep in mind that this game takes place in the ''future''.

In foreign media, Americans are often either cowboys or dressed so similarly to an archtypical cowboy that it makes no difference. Expect a ten-gallon hat, button-up shirt, jeans, boots and maybe a vest, poncho or duster for good measure. Apparently in {{Eagleland}}, the WildWest never quite ended.
