* In the first season of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', Admiral Lindy, wishing to make Nanoha more comfortable and show her appreciation for Nanoha's culture, invites the title character to a [[SpotOfTea tea ceremony]]. She then proceeds to prepare her green tea by dropping lumps of sugar in it and adding milk, a Japanese no-no (Lindy's doing it British-style with Japanese aesthetics) that caused Nanoha to [[http://www.katamari.com.br/ontherocks/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Nanoha_Horrifying.png be horrified]]. This later turned into a running gag. ** In the fourth ''[=StrikerS=]'' sound stage, it is revealed that she introduced it to Mary. Ginga, who also drinks her tea this way, asks her father, who is suggested to be of Japanese descent, if he would like to try it, and he politely refuses.

* Pretty much every character in ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'' has said or done something after forgetting that Matt is blind. A real estate agent tells him that his partner and him can fight over the office with the better view, Karen holds a newspaper up to him to show an article about how terrible Fisk is, Ulrich shrugs instead of verbally answering. Matt isn't too bothered by it and seems to prefer the odd faux pas to people treating him like he's made of glass.

* PiersAnthony's ''Xanth'' has a location called the "Faux Pass" (har de har; the entire series is essentially a HurricaneOfPuns). Anyone crossing through this pass is fated to commit a faux pas in the near future.

No argument about it.
* Andy, in ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'', is accidentally misled into confusing the naive and prudish Ruby with her sister, the ex-porn star Amber. Even so, giving Ruby a cock ring as a date gift, and then asking her in public when she discovered that she enjoyed taking her clothes off for the camera, is arguably crass by any standards. Fortunately for him, Ruby doesn't recognise the gift and suffers a [[HeroicBSOD total freeze-up]] at the question.

* In ''Series/TheWestWing'' episode "The Midterms", Doctor Jenna Jacobs, a conservative radio talkshow host, is publicly humiliated by the President of the United States (he draws her into clarifying that she [[MDEnvy is not an MD]], but rather has a [[NotThatKindOfDoctor PhD in English]], and then after she defends her stance that Homosexuality is a sin by quoting the [[Literature/TheBible Book of Leviticus]], asks her a serious of rapid-fire questions about whether he could sell his daughter into slavery, have his chief of staff executed for working on the Sabbath Day, etc. [[AsTheGoodBookSays all while citing different versus of Leviticus]] (President Bartlett being [[BadassBookworm a very well-studied Catholic]]), before finally pointing out what drew his wrath upon her.

* When Nick goes to meet Ki's parents in ''GeneralProtectionFault'', he takes great pains to impress her father with his knowledge of Japanese culture, but forgets to take off his shoes upon entering the house. To be fair to Nick, though, Mr. Oshiro is biased against him as a result of how Ki's relationship with Sam turned out, so even Nick's attempts to impress him come off as mocking Asian culture.
