* Terry the Kid from ''Anime/KinnikumanNisei'' is half-American, half-Japanese, but this rarely comes up because this wasn't so that the audience could relate to him -- it's just a natural extension of the fact that the American Terryman married the Japanese Natsuko after the original ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'' series. ''Kinnikuman'' is actually one of the series that most proudly averts this, with main characters who are 100% British (Robin Mask), German (Brocken, Jr.), American (Terryman), ''Native'' American (Geronimo), Chinese (Ramenman), Russian (Warsman), and Spanish (Buffaloman).

* CiaphasCain ('''HERO OF THE IMPERIUM''')'s fencing teacher was one [[MiyamotoMusashi Miyamoto]] [[CyranoDeBergerac de Bergerac]], though it's more of a ShoutOut gag rather than an insight into Imperial naming practices.

* Played straight in ''Anime/{{K}}'' with Andy Doumyouji (half-French according to WordOfGod), but averted with Adolf K. Weismann, when he [[spoiler: returns to his 100% German body after a long time in the body of a cute Japanese teenager, the only form his friends know him in.]]
** Eric Surt is also an aversion.

** Yuki, who is one-quarter French. This makes him Japanese enough to mostly fit in with the crowd in story but still gives him a [[RedHeadedHero unique appearance]] to signify his status as a main character.

* Tazuku of Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote series is one-quarter French who hails from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arras Arras]]. This is somehow unsurprising, as the part-author Hitomi Fujimoto is on record a [[ForeignCultureFetish big France Nut]].

* ''Webcomic/HowIBecameYours'' manages to do this with the canon characters, though it doesn't change their ethnicity. Instead, it changes cultural trappings, giving all heroic females very European-style gowns and using backgrounds that appear to come from France or Italy.

Some examples can be non-native, due to the thousands of races in the world, and we don't just marry people of the same race anymore. Characters like these can sometimes have a MultiethnicName. Compare ButNotTooBlack and MixedAncestry. May also overlap into TwoferTokenMinority. Overlaps with PlaysGreatEthnics in RealLife.
