** Made doubly hilarious by one of the gramps complaining to his friend, while pointing at the Alucard's [[HandCannon enormous guns]], that "[[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun they]] [[WithThisHerring didn't have that]] [[WorldWarII in Manchuria]]".

** Hilariously, going to Japan will make ''you'' into this. Everything is so different you'll want to take photos of it all.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TakingOfPelhamOneTwoThree'' evokes this by having a group of Japanese officials receiving a tour of the subway, behaving in much the same way that Japanese tourists do. Lt. Garber, annoyed at the assignment, shepherds them around and provides sarcastic English commentary, only to discover in the end that they [[BilingualBackfire all speak perfect English]].

* A pair of Japanese tourists show up in time for a fight between CaptainAmerica and the IncredibleHulk. Amusing in that the speech bubbles contain [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseWritingSystem kanji]], and in the caption box, [[TranslationConvention where one would expect a translation into English]], is only a transliteration into the romanized spelling of those words.

* In ''{{Hellsing}}'', Seras uses a group of elderly Japanese tourists to break up a fight between Alucard and [[KnightTemplar Alexander Anderson]] in a museum, requiring the two combatants to freeze in place and be treated like statues. [[HilarityEnsues It's just as funny as it sounds.]]

* Invoked in ''[[Manga/MidoriNoHibi Midori Days]]'' when the cast meet Daniel (who is himself {{Eagleland}} personified). He complains that Seiji a delinquent with bleached hair looks nothing like how he expected Japanese to look. So he gives Seiji an impromptu makeover to fit his preconceived stereotype... including a salaryman haircut, glasses, large front teeth, and yes a camera around his neck.
