* Apu Nahasapeemapetilon of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' fame seems to be heading in this direction among Indian-Americans, who see him as the embodiment and sire of every offensive Indian stereotype, as well as annoyance at the fact that he's voiced by the white Creator/HankAzaria. There was even a documentary aired in November 2017 called ''The Problem with Apu'', in which Indian-American comedian Hari Kondubolu ''ruthlessly'' tears apart every problem he has with the character.

* It's presumed by ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' enthusiasts that to avoid this was the reason the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony G3]] pony "Fiesta Flair" was made into a ToylessToylineCharacter. Fiesta was Mexican themed and likes maracas. Most fans didn't actually dislike her in the cartoons but ultimately she was never released anyway. Instead, she was redesigned into "Candy Apple".

* ''Film/FreakyFriday2003'' teeters the line with Pei Pei. She's a GenkiGirl of a Chinese immigrant who speaks broken English - but she does her best to help the mother and daughter, also chewing out her own mother for causing the plot in the first place.



* ''Film/KingKong''
** Charlie the cook from the original ''Film/KingKong1933'' is a definitive example of the Comedy Chinaman, mandarin suit and all. Made a little bit less awful because he does show some competence in spotting the bracelet dropped by one of the islanders. In the oft-forgotten sequel, ''Film/TheSonOfKong'', he fought off a Styracosaurus with a meat cleaver.

* ''Film/TheMaskOfFuManchu'' in addition to the MadScientist and his sexually charged DragonLady of a daughter, features a dim-witted, buck toothed Chinese man at the very end complete with AsianSpeekeeEnglish.

* ''{{Film/Pan}}'' has one scene where the tribe trots out their fiercest warrior - who is indeed an Asian man presented as a voiceless savage fighter. He also takes orders from Tiger Lily - who has been {{Race Lift}}ed to become white.



* Long Duk Dong from ''Film/SixteenCandles''.

to:

* Long Duk Dong from ''Film/SixteenCandles''. He has an exaggerated Asian accent (which is played for comedy) and a gong sound effect whenever he shows up. He does at least end up with a cool girlfriend.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Stealing Candy'' has Brad as one who ticks every stereotype of a 'ghetto black ex-con' character in these types of movies. He of course is the 'mean' in the NiceMeanAndInBetween trio of protagonists.


Added DiffLines:

* The ''{{Series/Goosebumps}}'' episode "A Night In Terror Tower" has some rather mean-spirited portrayals of English people. They're either snobby and pompous posh people who speak with [[IAmVeryBritish ridiculously posh accents]], or else rude cockneys that play the 'British people have bad teeth' stereotype painfully straight.

* The CharlieChan film series, ironically intended to avert this in the case of Asians, unfortunately played this trope entirely straight in regards to African Americans, as in the truly cringe-worthy appearances of Black character actors Stepin Fetchit and Mantan Moreland as characters such as "Snowball" and "Birmingham Brown."

Added DiffLines:

* Kool-Aid competitor brand Funny Face, unlike Kool-Aid, used a different mascot per drink, such as Goofy Grape or Freckle Face Strawberry. However, two characters drew ire: Native American stereotype Injun Orange and Chinese stereotype Chinese Cherry. The two of them were quickly replaced by Jolly Olly Orange and Choo Choo Cherry.

**Cookie Kwan is often seen as this. With her shrill attitude, stereotypical Asian rudeness and thick generic "Asian" accent you'd be hard pressed to find any fans of her.
