* ''Creator/{{Sunsoft}}'' was basically a whole microcosm of this phenomenon. During 1986-1994 they were considered in the West to be part of the big publishers such as ''Creator/{{Nintendo}}'', ''Creator/{{Konami}}'' and ''Creator/{{Capcom}}''. In Japan they were considered to be a shovelware company and had there a reputation that is about as prolific as the one ''Data Design Interactive'' was having in the West. This is largely due to the fact that a lot of their debut games (such as the ''Nazooler Land'' series) were bad enough to never be exported in the West and due to the fact that a few of their good Western releases (such as the NES game ''Freedom Force'') [[NoExportForYou never got a release in Japan]].

** To a lesser extent, this also happens the other way round. Americans may hear {{Radiohead}}, Music/{{Muse}} and Music/{{Blur}} and sing the praises of British rock, but how many of them have honestly listened to EnterShikari or The Twang?

* This also applies to Canadian television. While shows like ''Series/CornerGas'', ''NorthOf60'', ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'', ''Series/TrailerParkBoys'', ''Series/{{Beachcombers}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' all attain fanbases ranging from cult followings to genuine (if modest) popularity in English Canada, they occasionally hit it really big in the United States, with ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' being a major example. Incidentally, ''Red Green'' has become a major source for Creator/{{PBS}} [[{{Telethon}} pledge drives]] in the U.S., with the actual cast of the show appearing to drum up support. Meanwhile, as with film, French Canadians actively consume their own domestic work, most notably in Quebec.

* American music is very popular in the UK and Europe. Of course, for every [[NoDoubt Gwen Stefani]], Music/{{Kesha}}, Music/FooFighters or [[FiftyCent 50 Cent]] that makes it across ThePond, there's a dozen that sink along the way under the weight of their own awfulness.

Most of a given country's creative output is produced for the consumption of people living in that country. This is especially true when there's a language barrier involved; translation is [[BlindIdiotTranslation hard work]]. For comedy, doubly so. Even if two countries share a language, there are [[SeparatedByACommonLanguage other complications involved with importing a creative work]]. For movies and TV shows, RegionCoding may necessitate a new DVD release. For VideoGames, two countries may have different versions of the same console. MoralGuardians and viewers in your country [[ValuesDissonance may get upset]] about aspects of the work that are taken for granted or even welcomed in the country of origin. Some parts may need changing [[CulturalTranslation just to make sense]]. There's always the risk that the viewing public [[ViewersAreMorons still won't get it]]. And this isn't even getting into dealing with [[ScrewedByTheLawyers international copyright law]], finding a distributor, and innumerable other headaches with moving a work from one country to another.

* Restaurant chains that expand to other countries will be positioned as more upmarket than in their home countries, even fast food places like UsefulNotes/McDonalds and UsefulNotes/KentuckyFriedChicken.
* In the U.S., "ethnic" cuisine is considered better (and thus commands higher prices) than Anglo-American cuisine.

** The breakdown of this trope is at least part of the reason why UsefulNotes/TheJapaneseInvasion began to grind to a halt in UsefulNotes/TheNewTens. The internet fandom communities that popped up in the prior two decades were now big enough to bring many more Japanese series to the US... and they began to realize just ''why'' certain shows weren't imported. People not only began to realize that not every Japanese animation ''wasn't'' inherently superior to American animation, they also began to see that anime had its own assorted tropes and cliches, which were made more apparent once the novelty wore off and they could witness a broader, more representative cross-section of it.\\
\\
Furthermore, around roughly the same time the anime industry back home began to face a number of [[http://www.japantoday.com/category/opinions/view/the-freefall-of-japan%E2%80%99s-anime-industry problems of its own]], including [[PanderingToTheBase targeting the niche otaku market]] that [[MerchandiseDriven spends more money on merch]] (often at the expense of mainstream appeal), poor wages and long hours leading to a shortage of animators as people sought jobs elsewhere, and competition from Chinese {{manhua}} and Korean {{manhwa}}. These issues only compounded the above problem: just as the exotic novelty of anime was wearing off for Western viewers, the quality and quantity were going down and the works were hyper-focused on {{otaku}} audiences to the point of causing ValuesDissonance among non-otaku.

*** YLE has recently starting importing popular {{Creator/HBO}} dramas like ''Series/TheWire'' and ''{{Girls}}'', which are commercial-free (and cheap) and thus uniquely suitable.
