* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has many, but the most obvious is the ultimate one: Azania versus the Confederation. Or, briefly explained, a society of [[LadyLand mostly lesbian, tech-optimistic Amazons]] versus one of [[EvilReactionary reactionary Christian fundamentalists]]. For just one example of the ''little'' things they disagree on: In the Confederation, women who do not dress modestly and femininely are subject to public disapproval, whereas Azania has actually [[RealWomenDontWearDresses outlawed dresses]], considering them a symbol of the old female slavery their ancestors fought so hard to escape.

** In [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/3385085/chapters/7405448 Wear a Flower in Your Hair (You're Beautiful)]], Thorin calls Bella [[GenderFlip (femme!Bilbo)]] a halfling in reference to her being a hobbit. Unbeknownst to Thorin, "halfling" is an insult hobbits use to describe females who are barren. He is promptly horrified [[OpenMouthInsertFood at how badly he stuck his foot in his mouth]] and ''disgusted'' that a culture would have such an insult; while children are prized among dwarves due to their rarity, no female is ever shamed for being unable to have children or choosing not to have them, in stark contrast to the hobbits who are family-oriented to such an extent that it's lead to immeasurable heartache for those in Bella's position. The author also notes that the dwarf culture, from their research, is surprisingly gender equal with the closest word to "queen" (what Bella will be after the dwarves' home is restored due to her marriage to Thorin) translates to "she who is the king's equal".

* In the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly named]] Film/{{Zootopia}} fic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8763292%20 Cultural Clash]]'', Nick playfully snaps at Judy during an argument, complete with stamping his foot. Judy immediately goes sullen and gives him the silent treatment for several days. Nick is originally under the impression that it's because of his sharp teeth and is hurt that she still doesn't trust him but when he finally calls her mother in desperation to fix things, he discovers foot stamping is a dominance display and Judy felt devalued when he did it to her. As Bonnie puts it, "You may as well have slapped a leash on her and dangled her in the air by it for what it said about your opinion of her."

* In the 2010 remake of ''Film/{{The Karate Kid|1984}}'', Dre (who comes from the United States) claps and cheers loudly after his crush's violin recital. This provokes anger from the crush's father as the Chinese tend to stay silent out of respect after a performance of any kind.

* In the ''Literature/DreambloodDuology'', this is common between Kisuati and Gujaareen, even when the Gujaareen are of the shunha caste and stick very close to their Kisuati roots. The main point of contention is the dominant religion of Gujaareh, namely Hananja's Law. The Kisuati view the Gujaareen custom of Gatherer priests gathering -- read: killing -- people in their dreams when 'their time has come' as barbaric.

* Creator/NealStephenson frequently explores CultureClash and ValuesDissonance in his works. Friends or allies from different cultures and sub-cultures sometimes have to pause and step back a moment to understand where their companions are coming from. Many an antagonist in his works is a thoroughly evil villain from the protagonist's perpective, but is "good" by his own code as a WellIntentionedExtremist, KnightTemplar, or an example of outright BlueandOrangeMorality.
