* Phase, in the WhateleyUniverse. Ultra-rich, spoiled teenager from a mutant-hating family becomes a mutant and gets kicked out. This kid who has been waited on hand and foot ends up at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]], surrounded by mutants and struggling to fit in. Not usually played for humor.

* ''Film/WonderWoman2017'' has a double-whammy: American spy Steve Trevor is comically out of place when he crash lands on the primitive and magical home of the Amazons, and Amazon princess Diana finds herself in the same situation when she accompanies Steve back into his world.

* Tooru from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' is a dragon from another world working as a maid in modern Japan. This leads to a great deal of the comedy in the series. Especially when she tries to pass on her "knowledge" to Kanna. Elma ends up suffering the same problem when she gets stranded on Earth (though she's arguably even worse since she's gets a job working at Kobayashi's company despite having never even heard of a computer). All of them get better over time.

Naturally, Fish Out of Water have a danger of becoming awkward the longer a show runs. Or conversely, if they become used to their new surroundings, the risk is that[[CharacterizationMarchesOn their original characterization will be less applicable]] (same if they return to their old familiar surroundings).

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
