* ''FanFic/TitaniaFalls''
** Oddly subverted with [[Manga/FairyTail Fairy Tail]]. Despite some minor CultureClash, they acclimate to life on Earth relatively well. So well in fact, that many of them stay there permanently [[spoiler:after Earth and Earthland are bridged together]]. Most of this was likely intervention on Erza's end, who had been living on Earth for fifteen years by the time they arrived and had long since made a life for herself.
** Played straight with [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Ford]]. He has it even worse than in canon, since not only does have to acclimate to the modern world, he has to deal with Fairy Tail, who, on top of having magic he is completely unfamiliar with, has history that often leaves him LockedOutOfTheLoop.

* ''Film/{{Flodder}}''; The whole premise of the movie and its sequels is how out of place a delinquent family like the Flodders are by living in a well-off neighborhood populated by yuppies as part of the government's social project.

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': Reynir's who for all intents and purposes is a LittleStowaway to a military crew exploring a ForbiddenZone AfterTheEnd. To top it off, it's a crew full of BunnyEarsLawyer types and Reynir is a sheltered sheepherder with budding mage powers and literally nobody to train him in the latter domain.

* In ''Manga/{{Bizenghast}}'', Edrear and Edaniel go to by a present for Dinah. Since Edrear has only ever left the Mausoleum for work, he knows nothing about human society. Because of this, Edaniel managed to get him in a skirt as part of his human disguise. Edrear also asked for directions to a store that was directly behind him(although this may be more to do with the fact that he is illiterate) and apparently put a quarter in a mailbox to see if a gumball came out.

** Daenerys and Viserys, the highborn fugitives among the Dothraki, a race of nomadic horse-mounted warriors. Daenerys takes to it much better than her brother.
** Jon [[HeroicBastard Snow]], the highborn illegitimate son of a lord (Eddard Stark), among the lowborn, undertrained recruits in his training squad at the Night's Watch. Jon was raised with a highborn upbringing by his noble father with strong moral values and was trained by a master-at-arms alongside his brother Robb from the time they could hold swords. He joins the Night's Watch for the sake of honor and duty, as it is seen as a noble order in the North which the Starks (Jon's family) have joined for generations. Meanwhile, the other recruits grew up under impoverished circumstances and never held a sword in their lives. Jon helps these other kids out once he realizes how rough they had it, teaches them how to fight, and they all become friends. Jon is nicknamed “Lord Snow” by Alliser Thorne for being a highborn illegitimate son with a young lord’s upbringing.

** To lesser extent, Gohan's misadventures in high school. Gohan lived a very shelter life (fighting super-powered aliens and androids notwithstanding) where the only people he's closed to are aliens, powerful humans, and a genius. Him learning how normal people act and behave is a major theme while he's in school.

She is repeatedly noted as "lacking in the common sense of Gensokyo" (to which many fans noted that "sanity is a weakness in Gensokyo"), and when she eventually started trying to do "miko stuff" like go on {{youkai}} extermination trips, she gained notariety for starting the [[MemeticMutation "sadist" meme]] from appearing to enjoy her fight with Kogasa a little ''too'' much, and when she met a shapeshifting Nue youkai who was trying to [[FearlessFool transform into her fears, Sanae was elated]] to have found a "real live space alien!", and wanted to get her picture taken with her.
