* Ayako Hamada is Mexican, but since she's the daughter of a legendary Japanese wrestler, the LLF card read Mexico vs Japon when she brought Emi Tojo from J'd to serve as [[TagTeam her partner]] against Polly Star and Princesa Sugey.

* Canada-USA-Mexico hostilities are a calling card of Monterrey based LLF. It started because so many luchadoras were discouraged or blocked from working for LLF when it began due to more established area promoters being hostile to it, that LLF ended up contacting groups north of the border such as Special Events and Glory to fill its locker room.

* In the World Wrestling League's lead up to crown its first champion of the Americas, this ended up being the case between Phenomenal BJ (Puerto Rico), Joe Bravo (Dominican Republic) and Laredo Kid (Mexico). Each even got to be the hometown {{face}} for a while, since the promotion ran shows in all three areas.

* This happened in real life with SuperSmashBrothers at a huge tournament called Genesis, where the best North American player (and up until that point generally considered best player in the world) came one hit away from losing the grand finals to Europe's best player. Watching the matches, it comes down to a lot of cheering on both sides for their respective player/country.

* Irish Whip Wrestling amusingly had a match featuring the Scottish [[Wrestling/DrewMcIntyre Drew Galloway]] fighting the Irish Wrestling/{{Sheamus}} O'Shaunessy inside the Verona Football Club wearing blue while Sheamus was wearing green. Yes, it was mostly coincidental, but sometimes you can't stop a trope from coming into play.

* ''SamuraiChamploo'' gleefully lampoons this trope in the episode "Baseball Blues", in which a group of Japanese peasants play a baseball game against a crew of brutish Americans, and the fate of Edo Era Japan hangs in the balance over the outcome. Naturally this is all played out within Champloo's typically anachronistic, exaggerated idiom. [[spoiler: The most patriotic of the Japanese players are picked off in comical ways, while only Mugen (A thug with no patriotic fervour whatsoever) saves the country single handedly.]]
