* On ''Series/{{The 100}}'', Octavia desperately ''tries'' to do this, embracing Grounder ways and rejecting most of her ties to the Sky People, but she can never quite gain acceptance among the Grounders. Her lover, Lincoln, is a Grounder, but the rest of his people accuse ''him'' of GoingNative with Sky People, even though the Sky People have a decidedly mixed reaction towards him.

* ''Film/LittleBigMan'' goes native early in the film but he doesn't get to stay that way. He spends the rest of his life bouncing back and forth torn between two cultures that are often at war with each other until his Native American identity is symbolically "killed" when his former childhood friend knocks him unconscious at the battle of the Little Big Horn, sparing his life but effectively expelling him from the tribe.

* ''{{Film/Tron}}: Endgame Scenario'': ZigZagged a bit with [[TronTwoPointOh Jet Bradley]]. Being mistaken for a game bot turned security monitor and assimilating to Program customs is a lot less headache than being up front about his User status, [[StopWorshipingMe especially given how Jet views the whole idea of being worshiped]]. Even with the Programs who do know what he is, he makes great effort to follow their customs, even when he disagrees with it personally. However, he sometimes inverts it with Tron and Yori; Programs do not have the same concept of family as humans do, but Jet can't come up with a better honorific than the User ones of "brother" and "sister."
