* In ''SonicChronicles'', Amy will go on and on about her boyfriend Dexter, who's smart and funny and kind and resourceful and heroic and basically everything she ever wanted Sonic to be, minus the habit of telling her to buzz off when she's trying to be affectionate. Yet we never get to actually meet Dexter, because Sonic happens to have rolled into town when Dexter's away on business. If you choose enough "nice" dialog choices over the course of the game, she'll eventually own up that she made up Dexter in an attempt to get Sonic jealous so that he'd acknowledge that she is, in fact, "his woman".

If the character making the claims gets called out by his friends you can expect the girlfriend to show up before the episode ends. Unless the ''character'' claiming this is ''from'' Canada but the show is set in America (or vice-versa), in which case [[AvertedTrope expect nobody to question it]] ''[[AvertedTrope and]]'' [[AvertedTrope for it to be true]] (if so, NoExamplesPlease).

The UsefulNotes/UnitedKingdom and Continental {{UsefulNotes/Europe}} likely use each other in the manner described above. Don't expect this trope to show up in {{Anime}}; the rarity in Japanese media is due to the maximum range of probable places is too small if the character doesn't speak a second language. {{UsefulNotes/Australia}} and UsefulNotes/NewZealand seem to avert this as well due to a [[TheRival rivalry]] or [[{{TropesThatWillNeverHappen/Unknowable}} some other reason]]. A sci-fi or fantasy series will likely use a remote planet/colony or a distant land/other dimension respectively, while a modern setting with a FictionalCountry or two that has [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench the relevant kind]] [[{{UsefulNotes/Brazil}} of good reputation]] will have the Girlfriend In Fictional Country. If telecommunications is involved in all conversations, the Girlfriend In My Contact List is real [[TechnologyMarchesOn unless]] the work is set more than a few years ago; if online, then between the advent of [[TheNineties ICQ]] and the adoption of [[TurnOfTheMillennium Skype]] or otherwise [[CamWhore only]] [[BigBrotherIsWatching in very]] [[{{Scandalgate}} recent]] [[AdvertisingDisguisedAsNews years]], while if on a phone, prior to couples using SMS ('''[[spoiler:1-900 @ $2 a minute:]]''' "[[spoiler:So... what are you wearing?]]").
