* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' episode "The Royal Drum," Grandpa Smurf tells a story of when he went to Africa. The Smurfs being a reclusive medieval European culture, he obviously doesn't know what the local animals are called so he refers to a giraffe as a "long-necked leaf-eater," a herd of zebras as "black-and-white striped horses" and a lion as a "Smurf-toothed monster cat". The other Smurfs don't believe him until some of the animals are brought to their country by the princess of an African tribe that Grandpa Smurf befriended.

*** This is somewhat justified in the Stargate verse, due to the "aliens" not actually being aliens at all, but humans that were kidnapped from Earth in the past. Thus most of the "alien" cultures are actually based on ancient Earth cultures.

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', many dinosaurs populating the world are called by different names - for example, allosauruses are matadors, and deinynochuses become horrors. Justified by those being local monikers, whereas "international" names are the ones we know.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' has the citizens of the 15th-century kingdom of Mikado using terms such as "mystic script" and the "Unclean Ones". As it turns out, those two terms refer to Japanese script and Tokyo. As for why this is the case, it's a very long and spoilerrific story.

* In TheMovie of TwinPeaks, "Fire Walk With Me", the last scene has character(s) (When you roll with DavidLynch, the pluralization can be confusing) telling BOB that they want... "Garmonbozia", which the subtitles helpfully suffix with "(pain and suffering)". It manifests itself as... ''creamed corn''.
