* ''Manga/LuckyStar'' and ''Manga/KOn''[='s=] animated adaptations have the characters go to Kyoto for a ClassTrip, with nice Kyoto {{Real Place Background}}s to give it that extra sense of flair, thanks to the locale of KyotoAnimation, the studio who did the adaptations. Gets particularly weird with ''K-On!'' specifically because some of the settings in the girls' hometown are also taken from Kyoto, despite the fact they have to travel to visit Kyoto, implying they ''don't'' live there.

* The overwhelming majority of films in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon take place in either North America or Europe. Also, ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' is the only European-set film to take place in ThePresentDay. When it comes to specific identifiable countries, the ones most frequently depicted are, by a huge margin, the United States and Great Britain. France, [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} which]] [[Disney/TheAristocats has]] [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast four]] [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame films]], is in a distant third place.

** This is {{Lampshade}}d in the TV show ''Kanpai! Senshi After V''. The Yellow Warrior angrily points out that {{Kaiju}} monsters are supposedly a massive threat to the entire world, and yet they only ever seem to attack Japan. The Pink Warrior then asks why monsters never seem to attack America, which is much larger than Japan and is also a global superpower.

* ''VideoGame/MiniMetro'' has any number of real-world subways you can try to replicate, of which one is Auckland's. Except Auckland doesn't have a metro system, so why is it there, you may ask? Dinosaur Polo Club, the publisher and developer, is based there.

* ''ComicBook/{{Gen 13}}'' was {{Wildstorm}}'s flagship title for pretty much all of its 18 years, so it should come as no surprise that the team was primarily based in La Jolla, California, where Wildstorm's offices were located. This changed a handful of times as the book went on (for instance, one arc had the group living in Tokyo, and on various occasions they've gone on the run with no set base of operations), but everything goes back to La Jolla sooner or later.

** The plane roster is an aversion of this trope. Despite the series being made by [[Creator/NamcoBandai a Japanese company]], most planes aren't Japanese. Throughout the entire franchise, there have been only three Japanese aircraft featured (discounting the one from ''[[VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon Assault Horizon]]'' that was made by a fictional Japanese company), so good luck finding an [[KatanasOfTheRisingSun A6M Zero]] or a [[KaijuDefenseForce F-1 Kaizen or F-2 Viper Zero]].
