* 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.
