A [[{{Utopia}} peaceful paradise on earth]] full of friendly, wise, and good-hearted people whose prosperity is their (God-given) reward for their impeccable virtue. Theirs is a shining city upon a hill guided by destiny -- a land of freedom, justice, wealth, and luck, where people can [[ThePromisedLand leave their pasts behind and make new lives for themselves]], far away from the stratified social structures and open ethno-religious bigotry and violence of the Old World. In short, this is the flavor that embodies UsefulNotes/TheAmericanDream. Sometimes based on American media during TheFifties and TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, which portrayed the United States of America as a homey, [[GoodIsOldFashioned tradition-sticking]], almost [[TastesLikeDiabetes saccharine]] world of Heroes and [[IncorruptiblePurePureness built on nuclear family values, love, and old-fashioned simple mindsets]]. [[FlameBait This flavor is, of course, no 'truer' than any other - and especially not when it comes to individual US citizens.]]

*** 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.

* A montage in ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' shows daily life in various world cities being interrupted by ''daikaiju'' attacks. Apparently, daily life in New York consists of pimps pulling guns on cops in the middle of the street. Also, the two American main characters are a quite possibly insane BadassNormal (emphasis on the "{{Badass}}") and a self-important NietzscheWannabe, neither of whom, despite living in Tokyo, [[GratuitousEnglish ever say one word in Japanese]]. Kazama only really spoke English in like two parts of the movie: during the Ebirah fight and the "Watch it, X Man!" line.

* In ''[[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth]]'', Autozam represents the United States of America. Though the emissaries from it- Eagle Vision, Geo Metro, and Zazu Torque are perfectly pleasant people with Autozam's best interest in mind, they do want to take over Cephiro because Autozam is running out of energy. Eagle Vision- the president's son- is even designed to resemble a bald eagle!

*** Though not as boisterous as Trump, Hillary Clinton isn't very popular among Europeans either because...[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment 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).

* Subversion: In ''Manga/BeckMongolianChopSquad'', the eponymous band was, according to the opening song, "made to hit in America," and the band trying to make it over there was the subject of much of the series. However, their idea of fitting in is wearing t-shirts that say "Jesus is Coming", and America is shown rather realistically (despite some pretty bad {{Engrish}} signage).

* The America of the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series is Boorish to its logical extreme. Many people--including those from the UK (its actual country of origin)--are convinced that ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' is an American game. Granted, a great deal of the ''GTARadio'' segments which flesh out the Boorish elements were written by Rockstar NYC.
