* ''VideoGame/XCOMUFO Defense'' has an animesque intro, but the game's graphics were rather realistic for the period. The background images for Base functions and the Hidden Movement screen retain the art style of the intro.

* Though its art style is mostly western, ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' takes a lot of aesthetic and thematic hints from anime. Most notably, the Crystal Gems are essentially {{Magical Girl Warrior}}s, and there are plenty of references to anime throughout the show. Pearl herself looks very reminiscent of an Creator/OsamuTezuka creation, being very tall and bendy with a pointy nose.

Pearl herself looks very reminiscent of an Creator/OsamuTezuka creation, being very tall and bendy with a pointy nose. The first half hour episode "Bismuth" adds to this by adding {{Eye Catch}}s before and after the commercials. It also seems to borrow a good bit from {{Short Anime Movie}}s such as having a plot disconnected from the current ongoing StoryArc (which dealt with [[spoiler:[[ArcVillain Jasper's]] attempt to build a Corrupted Gem army to take revenge on "Rose" (Steven)]] and [[spoiler:Amethyst's feelings of inferiority stimming from being too UnskilledButStrong to beat Jasper in their first fight]]), introducing a new upgrade for the heroes (upgrades to the main three Gems' weapons), and [[spoiler:introducing a unique antagonist that is introduced and defeated by the end of its running time.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' 's visual style has always been anime-inspired, and grown more so over time. The series leans heavily on anime tropes as well, both for humor and as serious plot points. Notably, it is [[InvokedTrope explicitly mentioned]] several times that blue, purple, pink, green, etc. are common natural [[HairColor hair colors]] in TheVerse.


Added DiffLines:

* Despite being a text-based SharedUniverse serial, ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' frequently applies anime tropes, often lampshading or deconstructing them but just as often playing them straight.

* Inverted with ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Dawn of the Seeker]]'', which was an actual Japanese animated movie commissioned and written by [[BioWare an American video game studio]], producing a very Western-looking anime.

* ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'' has a cartoon segment in this style for every episode for season one and one episode for season two. The designs for the Aquabats! came from [[a long time fan from Japan, Eriko Uruma (better known as PEY) http://www.wb.commufa.jp/ptm/tasssc_001.htm]], who has done various fanart pieces and promo stuff for the Aquabats! long before the Supershow! came out. [[https://gs1.wac.edgecastcdn.net/8019B6/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_me4n0gXKmD1rkosb4o1_1280.gif And she's drawn crossover art]] with Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger, because why not?
* In ''SoRandom'' they had one skit where they imitated the PowerRangers but that didn't last long. The skit they use the most often is the Naruto/Dragon Ball immitating skit with two fans called Scott and Elliot who apparently do nothing but watch anime and constantly act like an anime character.

** ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'', a co-production between French studio Zagtoon and Japanese studio Creator/ToeiAnimation. The heroine is a Chinese-French MagicalGirl.

* ''Film/TronLegacy''. Many critics and moviegoers noted similarities to ''Film/SpeedRacer'' in style; and it becomes quite clear with the light-cycle races and light-jet battles. The [[DarkerAndEdgier dark tone]] of the movie could easily have it pass for an adaptation of ''Manga/GhostInTheShell''. There are also clear AnimeCharacterTypes exhibited with BadassBookworm ActionGirl Quorra, {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Castor, and Kevin Flynn being reimagined as TheObiWan.
