* Played straight, parodied, played for laughs, lampshaded, ''and'' justified with America in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia''. As he is the (admittedly stereotypical) personification of the US, he is deeply loyal to it. He hates Communists and Nazis, and claims, [[CatchPhrase "I'm the Hero!"]] However, he is completely clueless (giving him the nickname AKY in the Japanese fandom, short for Aete Kuuki Yomenai, which roughly means "Doesn't read the atmosphere") and orders his allies to be his backup. [[note]]Although, perhaps his ego is a little justified considering he was swinging ''a full-grown bison'' over his head. ''As a baby.''[[/note]]

** WonderWoman was this initially, but her character has developed significantly over time. In her first stories she was a foreigner dressed in a costume that Americans would interpret as "patriotic", apparently as conscious propaganda. These days, she's too integrated with Myth/ClassicalMythology to be a straight-up patriot (Superman being a better fit for this role, what with the whole "truth, justice and the American way" thing).

** Don't forget {{Steel}}, who started off as an embodiment of this trope, but became a subversion when his grandson [[LegacyCharacter took up the mantle]] as a member of the [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]. The original Steel was now shown to be an ultra-conservative and a bit of a bigot, and [[{{Deconstruction}} his patriotism was played as a negative character trait]].
** Miss Liberty from ''ComicBook/{{Tomahawk}}'', who was patriotic heroine of the Revoutionary war.
** The (now defunct) Global Guardians were essentially a whole ''team'' of [[CaptainPatriotic Captain Patriotics]] from around the world.
** And as a twisted example, Stalnoivolk ("Steel Wolf", or perhaps "Stalin's Wolf"). Fiercely loyal to the USSR--but that's the USSR of ''JosefStalin'', who created him. He'll work for later Soviet leaders, but he considers them, at best, to be poor and unworthy implementers of Stalin's glorious vision.

* Socialist Red Guardsman of China's ''Great Ten''. While August General in Iron and Immortal Man in Darkness are also true patriots, Socialist Red Guardsman is the only member of the team to actually have ''Das Kapital'' and ''The Little Red Book'' committed to memory. Socialist Red Guardsman believes he ''is'' the revolution, and has frequently broken his back to ensure that his teammates toe the party line with his endless rants and lectures. He even attempted to quit the team in disgust at his country's growing commercialism.

* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, aka Steve Rogers, [[UrExample is the most famous, and greatest embodiment of this trope ever]]. If you need to sum up his deepest values with one line, it's "I am loyal to nothing...except the [American] Dream."
** The "River of Truth" speech in ''Amazing Spider-Man'' #537 makes it clear that Cap is ''not'' guilty of blind jingoism; he says (paraphrased) that if someone else, or even the whole country, decides something wrong is something right and tells you to move out of the way, "your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world - 'No, '''''you''''' move.'"
* UltimateUniverse Captain America in TheUltimates seemed to be a subversion of this, where he is portrayed as more a {{Jerkass}} than anything else (patriotic, yes, but to the point of xenophobia), but Creator/WarrenEllis managed to make him a little more sympathetic, as evidenced here:
--->'''Ultimate Captain America''' to Commie Super-Soldier: Yeah, I'm gonna fight you. You know why? Because I fought beside Russians during World War 2. They were good and decent men, and they made terrible painful sacrifices to save their country. And for their country to then turn around and put monsters in prisons with nuclear landmines... to see people like you, proudly complicit in this nightmare... Yeah, I'll fight you. You've waited forty years for me in this hellhole, I feel it'd be impolite not to kick your head in.
* Other Marvel examples include: Miss America, Citizen V, Josiah X or Patriot from ''YoungAvengers''(the latter two are actually the son and grandson of one of the guys to wear the mantle of Captain America after Steve Rogers).
* Also the [=Superpatriot=]/[=USAgent=], the original Patriot, the Spirit of '76, the Defender, Jack Flagg, the Free Spirit, American Eagle, etc. The first three especially, since at one point or another they were Captain America themselves!
*** Of course, there are dozens of failed attempts at replicating the Captain America formula for success (or prototypical attempts that didn't fare well either). Anti-Cap (the Navy's Super-Sailor), Protocide (Failed early attempt), GI Max, Nuke, the 50s Cap who went crazy, etc.
* [[ComicBook/DarkAvengers Iron]] [[ComicBook/DarkReign Patriot]] is supposed to [[AmericanRobot look like one]], but is the ultimate perversion of this.
*** The MCU treatment of "Iron Patriot" carried over back to the comics: Rhodey now wears an Iron Patriot armor more like the one in the movie, while Ultimate Tony Stark took on the moniker in a new suit with a paint job similar to Norman Osborn's.
** In MC 2, this role is occupied by [[LegacyCharacter American]] [[DistaffCounterpart Dream]].

*** Captain America's original costume, bearing only one star on the chest and back, looks more like the flag of Liberia than the Stars and Stripes. At least Puerto Rico is US territory!
*** It gets hilarious when you consider that, under this logic, Osborn's Iron Patriot armor looks more like the flag of ''Cuba'' (white star on red field + blue and white stripes).



* Tarn from ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye is wholly devoted to the Decepticon cause, fully believing in Megatron's Peace through Tyranny (He named his ship the Peaceful Tyranny). So great is his devotion, he crafted several masks resembling the Decepticon symbol, wears them constantly, and he changed his name to Tarn, which was Megatron's home city.
** In addition several ships, Worldsweepers, are in the shape of Giant Decepticon symbols, flown by the most powerful or loyal, and they're so big, even from space, one sees them and knows, this is a Decepticon controlled planet.
