*** Though not as boisterous as Trump, Hillary Clinton isn't very popular among Europeans either because...[[RuleOfCautiousEditing well]], she's Hillary and her reputation (and her long line of scandals) speaks for itself. The wikileaks revelations that the Democratic primaries were ''deliberately'' rigged toward her over Sanders, whose Socialist background made him more endearing toward Europeans, didn't help much either. All in all, very much unlike 2008 (emphasized by the Germans putting on ''Hope! - Das Obama Musical''), the 2016 US Presidential election is looked upon in the more traditional sense (i.e. both candidates are bad, albeit for vastly different reasons).

** When it had been revealed that the FBI had spied on european politicians, especially those with a friendly attitude to the US (such as german chancellor Angela Merkel), the opinion about the USA for most europeans dropped significantly from "a place with cool movies behind the ocean" to "paranoid, crazy-religious gunnuts that think they are the world police". But while some outright hate the USA because of their meddling, most still openly enjoy what comes from there.
*** Trump in general has a quite negative reputation in Europe since both US and european media show him as the incarnation of boorish America. Him having said that other countries should do more for NATO (among them Germany and France who belong to the main players) made even more sure that a few europeans are cheering for Clinton and Sanders to become president. But while most people in Europe can't stand him, they also acknowledge that he is an extreme and that the country can't be judged by his behaviour alone.

** Given the reputation that the LAPD has inadvertently fostered since the Rodney King beating incident and the Rampart corruption scandal, many Angelenos might think the LAPD's depiction as just this side of TruthInTelevision.

** Also, the aesthetic design of the game is, according to Valve, inspired by artists such as J. C. Leyendecker, Dean Cornwell and NormanRockwell, all designed to recall The Beautiful. However the fact that everything (no seriously, [[GovernmentConspiracy EVERYTHING]]) is either a desert, a [[PaperThinDisguise badly-hidden spy base]], or both makes shift just a little towards The Boorish.

* ''NewHorizon'' has Xanadu, a mostly Beautiful stereotype that happens to be quite racist. Of course, this is a a faction on an alien colony in the future instead of America proper but...
* Andoran from the ''Pathfinder'' RPG is an idealized colonial-era FantasyCounterpartCulture example that leans towards Beautiful. They're NeutralGood and everyone acknowledges that their hearts are in the right place, but they're also seen as pushy and imperialistic, and their behavior often falls short of their ideals.

* Within the wider MarvelUniverse, second generation immigrant creation ComicBook/CaptainAmerica is one of the most respected and admired heroes for being America the Beautiful incarnate.
* Franchise/{{Superman}}, who was created by the children of Jewish immigrants and is himself an illegal immigrant fills much the same role for the DCUniverse. "He fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way."

* The song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7R5A0pg4oN8 America, Fuck Yeah!]]", which was used on ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice'', comes off as this. Lyrics-wise starts off as a Type-1 until the ridiculous lines of the latter stanzas make it a Type-2.

*** US universities are highly popular among european students despite the expensive fees and travel expenses. This usually results in especially the younger generation with high education being fully aware of many negative things in the US, yet being on friendly terms and often having contact with former friends.
