* ''Literature/SaveTheDay'' plays with several superhero-related tropes. One of the characters, Titan Tomcat, the hero of Toronto, [[http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3965023/ proudly wears the colors of Canada on his costume]]. In a world where all other Canadian superbeings are criminals or villains though, it's perfectly understandable that he'd want to show an heroic version of Canada to the world...

** The costume of Bucky/Winter Soldier as Captain America [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2007/11/19/fun-with-flags/ actually resembles the flag of Puerto Rico]]. Obviously a case of artistic license (at least it is a ''territory of'' the US).

* Averted by ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'''s Clownpiece, who wears American-flag clothes and has stars-and-stripes danmaku but isn't American (she's a lampad, a madness-causing type of fairy from Myth/GreekMythology). The reason she wears them is to function as a BrownNote to the Lunarians, reminding them of the first time humans landed on the moon (a major BerserkButton for them). The fans (especially Americans), however, love to use her as {{Eagleland}}er type-2 incarnate.

* The '80s indy superhero series ''{{ComicBook/Northguard}}'', published by Matrix Comics. A serious series which nevertheless lampshaded many Captain Geographic clichés.

* The Shield from ''Franchise/ArchieComics'', who was temporarily integrated into Franchise/TheDCU along with his other MLJ/Archie/Red Circle pals. Of note is the fact that he also happens to be one of the earliest patriotic heroes, and the design similarities between his costume and Captain America's original shield forced Marvel to change the shape of the latter. Archie's collection of some of the Shield's first comics proudly proclaims that he was the very ''first'' superhero to wear the Stars and Stripes. Which makes him the TropeMaker, at least in America.
* Franchise/WonderWoman, for the US, despite not canonically being born there. Her costume was eventually explained to be modeled in honor of a female American pilot who crashed on Themyscira.
* Presumably the same for Wonder Wabbit from the Just'a Lotta Animals of Earth-C-Minus from ''Comicbook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew'', who even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] her costume choice when Yankee Poodle compliments her on how patriotic it looks.
* Other: Captain Canada/Captain Newfoundland (from the obscure Geoff Sterling comic ''Atlantis''), Captain Canada (the cartoon one), Captain Canuck, Johnny Canuck (all Canada); Captain Euro and Europa (European Union. Yes.).

* The ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' features: Captain Texas (premiere hero of the Lone Star State); Captain Australia; Ultra-Man (from the United States); Jean d'Arc (France); Rodina (Russia), and Captain Barbados. Britain is represented by both Union Jack and John Bull. Doctor Tomorrowland Is a special case, in that he is named after one of Disney World's "lands" (which is appropriate, since he is a corporate hero working for the Disney corporation).

* Played for laughs in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse with the character [[strike:CAPTAIN CANADA!]] Cerebrex. He's a student at Whateley Academy whose powers work best if he gets properly psyched up first, and waxing over-the-top patriotic about the Great White North is his method of choice. Oh, and he can't actually officially call himself 'Captain Canada' because, possible copyright issues aside, school rules don't allow students to use ranks or titles they're not actually ''holding'' in their 'real' identity in their code names...

** In UltimateMarvel, Captain Britain is part of the European Defense Initiative, which as the [[TheWikiRule Marvel Database Wiki]] states, is pretty much an European version of TheUltimates (completely eschewing the mainstream counterpart's mystical origins). Along with him, there's also a Captain Spain, a Captain France and a Captain Italy (the latter two have since died).
