** Captain Dread from ''Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge'' is beloved by actual rastas (and reggae fans) as he embodies their typical traits of being helpful, laidback and wise despite his failing business. The makers clearly had ShownTheirWork as Dread comes across very similar to how his inspiration {{BobMarley}} actually was in interviews, as opposed to how he is usually depicted by the media.

* In-universe example in the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' DLC "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep", where Tina makes all of the dwarves in her [[MagicAmpersand Bunkers & Badasses]] campaign look like the resident short guy Salvador. Lilith thinks this is offensive, but Salvador thinks it's awesome.

* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' seems to have a lot of British fans, possibly due to a lot of British actors being in the film. It might help that it's based off a West End musical. The movie also has a sizable LGBTFanbase.

* Commercials for Skittles candies that featured Scottish Koreans (Korean people who speak with thick Scottish accents and play up classic Scottish stereotypes like playing bagpipes by foggy lakes) wound up being pretty well-received by actual Scots of Korean descent. They know the commercial isn't taking itself the least bit seriously and are happy to see Scottish-Korean ''anything'' in the mainstream.

** French actor (although Spanish by birth) Jean Reno was asked whether he felt disgraced voicing a stereotyped French character in the animated movie ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'' (this being only shortly after the vicious Iraq War-fueled feud between France and the U.S.). His response? "No, this is humor."

** Averted with ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'', the movies are pretty much ignored in the country, maybe due to the fact that other that the name has near to nothing to do with the place.

* Creator/DreamWorks
** ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' is incredibly popular in the Scandinavian countries, albeit is still part of the HornyVikings stereotype and they use Scotish accent instead of Scandinavian accent, many Scandinavians feel that it does portrays parts of the Norse culture correctly, something unusual for Hollywood.
** ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' and its sequels broke box office records in China. Of couse how unflattering Po is as a character probably depends on the viewer.

* At least a few Swedes have professed their love for ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'', despite the fact that their country is representr ed in the show by a vain, drug-and-alcohol-addicted nymphomaniac {{Jerkass}} with a MoneyFetish who enjoys hitting on elderly women, and whose name [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign isn't in actual Swedish]]. Said character, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, however, is probably the world's best guitarist in-universe, and [[DoingItForTheArt Does It For The Art]] when it comes to death metal. (He also periodically will have a PetTheDog moment, especially as the character development sets in.) The show also definitely [[ShownTheirWork Shows Its Work]] when it comes to metal and the entertainment industry, and is generally loved by a lot of metal fans from all over.
