* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', the Gerudo are a OneGenderRace of women, and as a result are shown to have a very hard time interacting with men. They have a special class dedicated to helping Gerudo understand how to woo men (one particularly bad student keeps flunking the lessons by being ''way'' too aggressive), and traveling Gerudo that Link encounters are often quite awkward with interacting with him. At least one actively flies into a panic when Link talks to her, whispering to herself to try and remember the lessons she was taught about what to do around a "voe".

* In Chris Roberson's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Literature/BloodRavens novel ''Dawn of War II'', when the BloodRavens are looking for aspirants among refugees, one speaks to the old woman who is in charge of one group, to try to get a boy from her. She contemptuously refuses to speak to him because he hasn't show her his face. He considers and unhelms rather than use force. That granted, she only asks whether the boy will have a chance to survive if they take him, and being told that he will have a chance to live, tells him to take him.

* Played for humour in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', Kaere, a returnee is offended by various gestures that "In her country" mean odd things. Also Maria is a reverse example; seeing negative things in Japanese society as positive things. Her reaction to a pedophile accosting a little girl; "People in Japan are so nice to little kids".

* As noted in the JapanesePoliteness trope, Japan averts this with respect to flags. Not wanting to curtail the citizens right to Freedom of Speech, but also not wanting to show disrespect, Japan outlawed all Flag Burning except for the Japanese Flag.
** Much of Korea and China's dislike of Japan is the result of this trope. Japanese culture makes it extremely taboo to make your "group" look bad to outsiders. Your group includes things like your family, your class, your company, your nation, ect. Naturally, this led to Japan not liking to discuss their role in WWII, which comes off as insensitive to Koreans and Chinese war victims. The United States, with it's own share of shameful past, generally is a bit more forgiving of Japan, but some circles still are taken aback with how little the subject comes up in Japan's history courses. This is especially true when compared to Germany, which are very open about how they are remorseful for their WWII involvement.
* JustFollowingOrders is an example of this. In German Law, UsefulNotes/DegreesOfMurder is set by the motivation of the accused when committing the crime. Thus the sentence is set based on the charge. In UsefulNotes/CommonLaw motivation plays no part in the charges but rather the planning or intent to commit the act. Motive comes into play only after guilt is established. So, to Britain and American members of the court, the "justification" came off as more severe because not only were they admitting to playing a part in a pre-meditated crime (which is the most severe of the murder charges) but upon guilt, they could now say that at no point did they see their actions as wrong, which doesn't help at sentencing.

* ''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.
