** For instance, the main characters of the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series are plumbers with large noses and moustaches who 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 are inspired by a [[DastardlyWhiplash classic American character archetype]]. That said, there are plenty of Japanese influences too, mainly in the form of call backs to the culture and mythology, and the female characters come across as a blend of western and eastern character designs, much more so than the men.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' from the same company, for the speed lines, hair highlights, and transformation sequences. Its animation and character designs are mostly of the Western variety, although a case could be made on Ben and Gwen's eyes. ''Omniverse'' and the reboot series avert this as they use more Americanesque designs.
* By extension, ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', by many of the same people. It helps that one of the co-owners of the property is a Japanese company, and all three of its animation studios are Japanese.

* The ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' franchise is usually described as "Asian-influenced". It also seems to have a higher amount of "cred" since it uses the more cinematic, narrative, [[Creator/HayaoMiyazaki Miyazakian]] form of "anime"-style animation and art-style. Although, [[FandomBerserkButton calling the show an anime]] in certain places is liable to get you [[InternetBackdraft considerably flamed]], either by rabid [[FanNickname Avatards]], or by purists who hate most non-Japanese "animation". One reason it pulls it off so well is that its animation studios, Creator/DRMovie and Creator/JMAnimation, worked primarily on anime, including many higher production ones. Also, one of the supervising directors, Oh Seung-hyun, studied for a year under [[Anime/{{Macross}} Shoji]] [[Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne Kawamori]].
