* Dieter, the German immigrant in ''{{Killinaskully}}'' regularly finds himself flummoxed by the [[{{Oireland}} bizarre goings on]] in the [[ThePlace titular village]]. However, this seems to be less because Dieter is the OnlySaneMan and more just that his own [[CloudCuckoolander cloudcuckooland]] is so different from those of Ireland.
* The non-X-Series transgenics in DarkAngel, specifically Joshua at the beginning of season 2.
* ''HoustonKnights''

* The one-shot announcer [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbK4N445WBk&feature=related Lance-Corporal Collier]] from ''RutlandWeekendTelevision''. He was originally brought in for a sketch, and, as he's not shy to point out, doesn't know a whole lot about announcing.

* Tooru from ''Manga/KobayashiSanChiNoMaidDragon'' 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.

* In episode 6 of ''Manga/MagicOfStella'', Tamaki's first experience of a {{doujin|shi}} game convention is basically being far out of [[CountryMouse her element]], having no idea about some convention conventions means. When an member of the public hands her the former's sketch pad, for example, she didn't know that other person wants her to scribble for her.

* ''Film/QueenOfKatwe'': The kids from the desperately poor slum of Katwe have a little difficulty when they go to an elite private school to play in a chess tournament. One kid gets so scared that he has a panic attack. Another one of Robert's students gets irritated when he tells her that she should use a fork rather than just ripping the chicken up and eating with her hands.

* One of the defining traits of modern Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}. Unlike her more famous [[Franchise/{{Superman}} cousin]], who left Krypton when he was too young to remember it, Kara spent her formative years growing up in Kryptonian society before she was sent to Earth as a teenager. Understandably, she has a harder time adjusting to life on Earth than Kal-El ever did, as she still considers herself a Kryptonian at heart.

Added DiffLines:

** There's actually a NotSoDifferent aspect to this, since Kaname herself spent a good portion of her youth in New York and as a result has a much more "American" personality (assertive, emotionally open, and short-tempered), meaning in some ways she's just as alien to Japanese society as Sousuke. She actually has the InSeriesNickname "The School Idol Nobody Wants to Date" because while she's very attractive, intelligent, and athletic, her personality tends to drive guys away.
