* The Shield from Archie Comics, who has recently been integrated into 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.

* In ''Series/GoodnessGraciousMe'', there is the Punjabi super-hero BhangraMan, who defeats his foes through his amazing superpower of Indian folk dancing.

** Minor Marvel villain Nuke, being essentially an EvilCounterpart of Captain America, is a surprisingly downplayed example; he has a Stars and Stripes flag [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead tattooed on his face]] and takes "Red, White and Blue" drugs to fuel his super powers, with different colors affecting his mood/abilities (reds fuel his strength and drive him berserk, blues give him less strength but keep him from going too crazy, and whites cool him down).

* Every member of ''Series/BattleFeverJ'' has a shield on his or her chest bearing their nation's flag. This is mainly because the show was a loose attempt to adapt CaptainAmerica as a {{Toku}} series.

* In one ''PowerpuffGirls'' episode Blossom briefly remodels herself as "Liberty Belle" with a stars-and-stripes motif. Funnily enough, there actually ''is'' a patriotic heroine in DC called Liberty Belle...
