* Another stereotypical Siamese cat from a Creator/{{Disney}} feature: Shun Gon, the Chinese member of Scat Cat's gang from ''Disney/TheAristocats''. He's not a villain, but he has the buck teeth and the exaggerated accent. People rarely comment on the fact that the other cats in Scat Cat's gang are also strong ethnic stereotypes (though this is probably because Shun is a non-white ethnic caricature voiced by a white voice actor-- Paul Winchell).

* Christian Bale's character, John Miller, in the Chinese movie ''Film/FlowersOfWar'' is a big one. Getting over the FakeNationality of him being American, he managed to embody every racist stereotype of Westerners held in popular Chinese culture. He's a greedy, alcoholic, lecherous coward, whose first thought upon entering the cathedral is to look for booze. He only reluctantly agrees to help out after being shamed into it. It's made worse by the director (Zhang Yimou) thinking he's being progressive. "This kind of character, a foreigner, a drifter, a thug almost, becomes a hero and saves the lives of Chinese people. That has never ever happened in Chinese filmmaking, and I think it will never happen again in the future."

** The original series is grindingly embarrassing at times due to this. Supposedly, the Zulus throwing spears at the Quest Jet in the closing credits were from an episode that never aired, but that image is crazy enough. The worst that DID air was "The Sea Haunt", where the team were stranded on a ship when the MonsterOfTheWeek smashed their plane. They find the only survivor of the ship's crew -- a Chinese cook named Charlie who has a horrible accent, dresses stereotypically (how did they miss giving him a pigtail?), and continually references his "honorable ancestors". They are eventually spotted by DUTCH search parties from Batavia-- despite Jakarta (and Indonesia) having been independent for years already. Oy...

* Brain, Dyno & Myte from ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn''.

to:

* Brain, Dyno & Myte from ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn''. Brain is little more than [[IAmVeryBritish a British caricature]] who only ever contributes to the plot with inventions that either [[TheMillstone end up being used by the villains]] or serve as [[DeusExMachina Dei ex Machina]], while Dyno and Myte constantly rattle off stereotypical Spanish phrases to the point where it becomes annoying and enjoy blowing things up. And that's about it; they have ''[[FlatCharacter no other personality traits whatsoever]]''.
