* From the [[GermanMedia German]] SketchComedy ''Series/Switch1975'': A judge tries to overrule a lawyer's objection, but the lawyer protests that it's not possible to overrule an objection in German court. Later the defendant protests that he doesn't want the jury to be swayed by the prosecutor's language, but the judge points out that there is no jury. In German court there is only a "jury" of three professional aldermen.

* ''[[Film/{{Twelve}} 12]]'' is a Russian remake of ''Film/TwelveAngryMen'' and has the same central conceit of the RogueJuror as lone holdout for acquittal who gradually talks all the other jurors into his point of view. The only problem is that after a Russian jury has deliberated for three hours only a majority vote is required for conviction and a 6-6 tie will result in acquittal. The film shows the jury continuing to deliberate until the evening when they finally get a unanimous Not Guilty verdict.

* The tendencies of people in non-US anglophone countries hearing the American term for things more often than their own words that it takes a moment to remember them. Common examples: "elevator", "sneakers", "shrimp".

* Parodied in ''Series/TheITCrowd'' when Roy says to call 911 for an office fire and is reminded by Moss that 911 for the US and it's 999 in the UK.[[note]]Except when it's not.[[/note]] In reality, calls to 911 (as well as 112) will actually be rerouted to 999 on most (if not all) British phone networks.

** Speaking of weddings: the ritual in countries other than the US or the UK never had the "let them speak now or forever hold their peace" part. Notably many American and English weddings no longer have it either, for all the good practical reasons you can imagine and various legal ones you might not, but it still sometimes pops up in popular culture, to the point people in countries in which that line never existed occasionally expect it.

Please note that while this trope is common in RealLife, examples here should only be from the media.



** Many French judges also get annoyed at hearing themselves being called "Votre Honneur" ("Your Honor", the American form of address) instead of the correct French address, "Monsieur/Madame le juge" / "Monsieur/Madame le président/e".

** Many French judges also get annoyed at hearing themselves being called "Votre Honneur" ("Your Honor", the American form of address) instead of the correct French address, "Monsieur le juge" / "Monsieur le président".[[note]]The feminine forms -- "Madame la juge" and "Madame la présidente" respectively -- should be used where appropriate.[[/note]]
** The problems with forms of address also appear in Germany. "Euer Ehren" (Your Honour) is incorrect - it's "Herr Vorsitzender" or "Frau Vorsitzende" (Mr. or Mrs. Chairman). Sometimes "Hohes Gericht" (High Court), under certain circumstances. But never "Euer Ehren".
