* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Usually averted in ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. There several types of Americans in that series, ranging from blondes to black-haired American or dark-skinned or black people. However, there was one time where Conan distinguishes the Brittish James Black from a similar looking Texas-native American (portrayed with a cowboy hat) through their different accents. Said American had a strong Southern accent.

* UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt was a cowboy, among other things. Mark Hanna, who'd [[GenreSavvy argued against]] [[KickedUpstairs kicking Roosevelt into the Vice Presidency]] [[ReassignmentBackfire for exactly this reason]], had this to say.

* Discussed and subverted in ''FanFic/PowerRangersGPX'' with the American lead, who's a northern, Midwestern city-slicker that's never been on a farm in his life, lamenting the stereotype.

* A frequent complaint from American intellectuals and academics about their European (particularly French) opposite numbers is this bizarre identification of the cowboy as one of the most important things in the American psyche. One episode of ''ThisAmericanLife'' includes a bit where a [[http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/362/got-you-pegged?act=2 visitor to Germany goes into the phenomenon]] (and why it's stupid) in detail.

* UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis from the ''Characters/SegaHardGirls'' franchise provides the trope image. As the Sega Mega Drive was released in the U.S. as the [[MarketBasedTitle Sega Genesis]][[note]]since "Mega Drive" was already copyrighted in the U.S. from someone making hard disk drives,[[/note]] and both consoles are represented by separate characters in the series, "Jennie" is a transfer student who comes to Japan after having studied in the U.S. [[SarcasmMode Naturally]], this means she wears cowboy attire from head-to-toe along with a bandana halter top with the design of the American flag on it, with shades of black from the console she's based off of. Because she's the American console after all.
