* ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' naturally spoofs this one, with the Anime/DragonBallZ-esque battle between Cartman and Saddam near the end, complete with motion lines and odd camera angles.

* Many European co-productions with Japan manage to both play this trope straight and invert it depending on how you look at them, for the obvious reason that the cartoons are a hybrid of Western animation and Anime.

* Italian show ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' is so Anime influenced that some Italian viewers thought at first it was a Japanese show until the credits appeared. The show is a MagicalGirlWarrior series with heavy use of Shoujo demographic elements and the visual style include body proportions, shading, visual tropes and big doe eyes with sparkles that are very anime-like. It doesn't use limited animation though.

* ''Webcomic/{{Galebound}}'' is influenced by anime and manga, although it is read from left to right. The character's expressions occasionally veer into animesque when properly flabbergasted.

* While not specifically western (indeed, it more closely resembles chinese/korean animation in aesthetics), ''Literature/ArashiNoYoruNi'' is still much closer to your average western animated feature than traditional anime.
* ''Bambi and her Pink Gun'' is so visually influenced by the aesthetics of American comics that only the onomatopoeia give it away as an original Japanese creation.

** For instance, the main characters of the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series are plumbers with large noses, moustaches and speak with a heavy Italian accent; the use of anime tropes in the series is rather rare aside from subtle graphical elements; and the minimal audible spoken dialogue by any of the characters (in any language) is in English. Some characters take it further, Princess Daisy's dialogue in particular borrows from many different American English dialects and accents, like Valleyspeak, Southern Dixie and even Ebonics, and Wario and Waluigi is a return of a [[DastardlyWhiplash classic American character archetype]].

That said, Japanese influence started creeping into the series at one point or another following ''Galaxy 2''.



** ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' has always aimed for an American comic book look with the atmosphere from Hollywood sci-fi, though several games post-Fusion showed more Japanese influence.

** ''VideoGame/CodeNameSteam'' features several characters and references from western literature and folklore. Just throw in UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln, some Type 1 {{Eagleland}}, a SteamPunk setting, a [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age comic]] aesthetic, a FramingDevice where cutscenes are played out in the panels of a comic book, and as if those elements weren't enough, a [[{{Camp}} campy]] anthem as its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpcTwOHXdqw theme song]], you'll have a Japanese developed game that is ''very'', '''''[[UpToEleven very]]''''' Western.

** ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' stars a round pink creature with large red feet, and the scenery and characters are clearly reminiscent of cartoons such as ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs''. Even the main antagonist is a fat [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguin]] in a Santa Claus-like outfit, and enemies include orange creatures wearing chef hats and wielding frying pans and large beetle-like insects with gloves and sneakers.

* The immense popularity of Japanese media in China had caused a large amount of modern 2D Chinese animation and art in general to adopt a style similar to anime and manga art. One would guess that "[[Memes/{{Anime}} Chinese cartoons]]" really is synonymous with anime in a sense.
