* ''Series/TheIndianDetective'': Part of the show's drama. Doug D'Mello, despite being of Indian ancestry, was born and raised in Toronto. As such, he finds some things strange in India like arranged marriage and a Mumbai Police constable letting a street kid go for stealing his wallet. It doesn't help that some Indians are reminding him that he's not raised in India, so he doesn't comprehend the situation.

* Part of the premise of ''FanFic/ChildOfTheStorm'' is that Harry Potter, in addition to being a wizard, is also the son of Thor (who was incarnated as James Potter as a first try of that whole "teach him humility" thing). This catapults him from Hogwarts-which, admittedly, is weird enough-into dealing with Asgardians, [[Literature/DresdenFiles a whole different magical community]], superheroes, and international and interplanetary politics, not to mention all of the assorted monsters.
** Another example within the story is [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers,]] who's a FishOutOfTemporalWater and mentor of Harry's.

* 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).
