Don't be fair, please. Natter doesn't deserve fairness
** The movie has gotten a pretty bad rep in places where ''Godzilla'' hasn't been established as a pop-culturally relevant franchise, and so most people have grown up with the [[{{Film/Godzilla1998}} previous American reboot]] instead. Being that one of the main focuses of the film was to approach it from a "fan perspective" and distance it as much as possible from the '98 movie, it's easy to see why this strategy backfired in places where audiences harbored no love for the Japanese Godzilla, especially since reviews agreed that its faithfulness to the source material was one of the movie's main selling points. Basically, the two movies' receptions are inverted compared to countries where the brand has had a history. To be fair, there are fans of the Japanese Godzilla that complain about the constant cutaways from potential fights and focus on bland characters.

According to Box Office Mojo, this is false.
* ''Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens'' made some headlines for fizzling out in foreign markets. Its domestic box office is the highest ever, but in non-English-speaking markets, its performance was fairly average - most notoriously, it lasted a total of one week at the top of China's box office before being ousted by ''Boonie Bears 3''. What's ''Boonie Bears 3''? [[AppealToObscurity Exactly.]] It also did middling business in Japan; largely due to coming out the same time as the second ''Anime/YoKaiWatch'' film. This has rankled many fans; due to ''Yo-Kai Watch'' being an example of this itself in both Anime and Video Games.

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff The popularity of]] Creator/{{Disney}} [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff in Japan]] is inversely proportional to the ''un''popularity of every other American feature animation studio in the country (with the exception of Creator/{{Pixar}}, occasionally). It's reached the point where a lot of new releases aren't even sent to Japan, while others (such as Creator/DreamWorksAnimation's newer films) go [[Main/DirectToVideo straight-to-DVD]]. This is atypical for an east Asian country, where non-Disney animated films are usually very popular. One of the biggest examples of this is ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'', which barely made any money at the Japanese box office due to ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' coming out at the same time!

** Focusing on Sentai alone, ''everything'' about the train-themed ''Series/ResshaSentaiToQger'' doesn't work well with American fans of the franchise. The entire fact that trains are the motif is enough to turn western fans away, since trains aren't as popular or prominent in America as they are in Japan. The suits get hate for its simplistic design, the arsenal gets hate for its similarities to [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger Go-Onger]], and the mecha lineup gets hate for its blockiness. It's even gotten to the point that Saban is skipping ''[=ToQger=]'' for ''Power Rangers'' in favor of adapting ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' as ''Power Rangers Ninja Steel''.

** In ''Brawl'' he's an Assist Trophy, and has a small variety of effects, such as summoning a bunch of balloons (no effect on gameplay), causing everyone to breathe fire, [[ScrappyMechanic making all surfaces slippery and forcing everyone but the summoner to trip endlessly while banana peels fly everywhere]], scattering a hoard of Hammers/Golden Hammers everywhere (out of which only one is the "real" one, the others being duds that force your character to flail around uselessly), and [[InterfaceScrew zooming the camera extremely close to the character who summoned him]], all accompanied by his weird creepy grunts, groans and other odd sounds.

* Korean animation is barely known outside of South Korea (apart from international co-productions or stuff appealing to a very dedicated demographic. ''The King Of Pigs'', for instance, which is quite beloved among fans of adult WesternAnimation), however, there is a specially big {{Hatedom}} in Japan, who see it as Koreans ripping off their own animation.

* The Disney comics are traditionally more popular in Europe than their native United States. However, according to Don Rosa, the confrontation between Scrooge and Soapy Slick in Part Eight of ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcduck,'' in which Soapy's riverboat casino was destroyed, was frowned upon by European readers for supposedly making Scrooge look like a Batman-esque vigilante (although Rosa never wrote what exactly happened and constantly maintained that the tale was meant to be exaggerated through legend).

* While Bram Stoker's Literature/{{Dracula}} is regarded as being a Literary classic throughout most of the world, and especially in Western nations, but it widely disliked in Romania as being a xenophobic "story made up by a foreigner to titillate other foreigners". It is considered very distasteful for the fact that the name of Vlad III (The Impaler) Dracula, who to this day is celebrated as a hero for the cause of defending the independence of Wallachia (one of the predecessor states of Romania) from the invading Ottomans during the fifteenth century ([[WellIntentionedExtremist even if it meant taking some brutal methods to so]]), was used for that of the bloodthirsty, habitual MoralEventHorizon crossing monster. To put this another way, if a writer from another country were to write a novel featuring an American serial killer and/or rapist named Abraham Lincoln or a British murderer/rapist named Winston Churchill, that [[DudeNotFunny would not be taken kindly]] by citizens of those respective nations. Granted even though Romanian's loathing for Bram Stoker's Dracula has ameliorated over the decades and have even been willing to capitalize on the fictional Count Dracula's association with the country by selling vampire related souvenirs, but it is still not wise to talk about Dracula at length with any random Romanian on the streets.

* While ''Film/PacificRim'' was a modest hit in the U.S. ([[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff but much more popular throughout most of Asia and Oceanic areas), the film did poorly in Europe, partly due to the fact that most of the action happens, only by the ]] [[CaptainObvious Pacific Rim]]. The U.K. (due to highly-respected actor Creator/IdrisElba playing one of the main characters) and Russia (due to the popularity of [[EnsembleDarkhorse of the couple that pilot]] ''[[EnsembleDarkhorse Cherno Alpha]]'', and that Russia is the only European country with a Pacific Coast) are exceptions to the rule. Ironically, the movie also did not do well too Japan (it did modest in Japan, like it did in the U.S., but wasn't the blockbuster hit it was in the China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Australia), despite being a love letter to the Kaiju genre and it's similarities with SuperRobot anime, and having acclaimed actress Creator/RinkoKikuchi. Then again, [[NeverAcceptedInHisHometown she's never really been popular back in Japan.]] One theory for the film's poor performance in Japan was that the country already had many of its own HumongousMecha works such as ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''; and thus had little interest in seeing a Westernized version.
