* WebAnimation/YouTubePoop is not popular in Japan, despite several attempts to introduce it to a Japanese audience, and the fact that some popular YTP sources are anime.

* This example is more of a result of a terrible [[BlindIdiotTranslation mistranslation]] than the quality of the product itself. A few years back, ice cream makers Ben & Jerry's attempted to sell their Chunky Monkey-flavored ice cream in Japan. It was a flop, though the company was baffled why. They discovered during a blind test that the Japanese actually loved the flavor which confused the company even further. Eventually they discovered the reason the flavor flopped: "Chunky Monkey" literally translated in Japanese means "Chunks of Monkey".

* For the US convenience store chain 7-11, the Slurpee is their iconic product to such a degree that 7-11 has dubbed July 7th "Slurpee" day and gives out the beverage for free. It's not unheard of for stores to run out of cups early into the afternoon rush hour. In Japan, where 7-11 is THE convenience store and is so popular that Japanese investors own the controlling interest of the company, the Slurpee never caught on and isn't sold in stores at all.

** Series/ZyudenSentaiKyuoger was not well received because it seemed to push aside it's rather larger ranger cast to focus on the red ranger. Meanwhile PowerRangersDionCharge was very well received by Americans. Having a few years to work out the problems of the series and had the first exclusive villain in ages. It also worked to shoot it's own footage.
** SamuraiSentaiShinkenger and PowerRangersSamurai are a bizarre case... Americans and Japanese alike love Shinkenger... but the Americans despise Samurai despite (or because of) the very similar plot. The Power Rangers series is typically given a pass because it was rushed to production and getting it over with was part of the problem with Super Megaforce.
** EngineSentaiGoOnger was never really loved in Japan and is seen as mediocer. It's American Counterpart, PowerRangersRPM is one of the best loved series in Franchise. RPM had a lot got a lot of mileage out of pointing out some of RPM's unusualness, such as the mecha designs and poking fun at some of Power Rangers tropes altogether.
** Among AmericanFans, UchuuSentaiKyurangers is getting a nice following. Much of the love is owed to it being SuperSentai first Space Opera plot, which has been the basis for two very successful Power Rangers adaptations. It's helped that this is also the first time that SuperSentai production has worked with Power Rangers Production and that, despite the team starting at nine members, each of them seem unique, fleshed out, and fun.
** Finally, now that we're in the realm of Space Opera Power Rangers, there is a case where this is reversed. The Japanese loved PowerRangersLostGalaxy so much, that it out performed GingaSentaiGingaman, the series Lost Galaxy adapted, in the Ratings... Gingaman's actors even dubbed their Power Rangers counterparts.

** The general rule is that ''Super Sentai'' works best while being silly, and ''Power Rangers'' works best when being serious. For this reason, the serious ''Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger'' almost ended ''Super Sentai''; but the silly ''Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger'' saved the series from cancellation. Inversely, when ''Ohranger'' was adapted into ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'', it was and is a season that is well-regarded among ''Power Rangers'' fans; while when ''Carranger'' was adapted into ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'', it almost got the series cancelled.

Actually, the theory that ''Ohranger'' almost ended ''Sentai'' has been proven to be false as it was in fact ''Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman'' that almost got ''Sentai'' cancelled and that ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman'' was originally intended to be the final season, along with the theory that ''Turbo'' almost ended ''Rangers'', when in actuality, the ratings decrease began in ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' season three and wouldn't increase until the second half of ''Turbo'', resulting in the originally planned final season ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' is well regarded among both Sentai and Ranger fans, while its American counterpart ''[[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Super Megaforce]]'' is loathed by Ranger fans.

* Creator/{{MTV}} has been a phenomenon everywhere in the world, with the exception of France, where it is niche at best. This mainly has to do with the RTL group having already launched a music channel in France under the name of M6, which fulfilled the role that MTV already had and that launched on 1 March 1987, while MTV only launched there on 1 August 1987. Add in that US imported cable channels generally have limited access to the French audience (you already need a quite expensive contract to watch Nickelodeon or Disney Channel in that region) while M6 is available even in the cheapest cable contracts and you understand why MTV never had success in that region.

Not only that, MCM is more or less seen as a French version of MTV and is actually more popular than MTV France.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' is actually quite popular in France, but when it aired in Australia it wasn't received very well (possiblt due to late night airings) and the English dub was cancelled after the first season.

* There was an episode of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' called "Shoo Ed" that lampshaded this, where the Eds train Johnny to be the most annoying person in the world so they can charge the kids to get rid of him. However, Rolf the immigrant kid practically falls in love with him. Even taking his belching in stride: "You are full of pickles and beets today, my friend." Double D's response to this is the page quote.

* Nokia was the absolute king of cell phones from the 1990s to the early 2010s. The high quality and advanced features of their devices granted them a huge and rabidly loyal clientele all over the world... except in North America, where they never made much of a dent, and are only remembered for very unimpressive low-end devices. Blame carriers, who wanted to ''remove'' features from their high-end devices to sell piecemeal (such as disabling wi-fi to make people use their expensive data plans), and shunned Nokia when they refused to compromise.

* Nokia was Nokia. In most of the absolute king world, they have a sterling reputation for selling ''billions'' of the most advanced and reliable cell phones from the 1990s to the early 2010s. The high quality and advanced features of their devices granted them a huge and rabidly loyal clientele all over the world... except ever made. But in North America, where they never made much of a dent, and are only remembered for very some rather unimpressive low-end devices.
