* Hollywood Montrose from ''Film/{{Mannequin}}'' is so stereotypically CampGay that he would become a bonfire if he were any more stereotypical, but manages to be unashamedly cool at the same time. WebVideo/{{Rantasmo}}, a gay reviewer, admitted to loving his character in spite of its extreme stereotypicalness.
-->'''Rantasmo:''' Hollywood Montrose is a cliché character based on a tired, thoughtless, offensive, insulting stereotype... and I ''love'' him. [...] And so Hollywood presents a kinda unique dilemma: can a stereotype be awesome?

* Many Brits love Geoffrey from TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir because of how much of a DeadpanSnarker he is and how frequently he seems to be the OnlySaneMan in a given situation. In fact, he's depicted as more intelligent and educated than he might be in a typical British sitcom.

** Similar to Captain Gordon above, Arthur is a parody of over-the-top American superheroes, and he's far more popular in America than in Japan.

** The gimmick is so over partly because Regal himself came up with it in the early 90s WCW and relishes playing it. He knows its more over with fans than other ones could be. It helps that Regal's British fans know that his posh character is nothing like his working class Northern roots (and is in its own way, a send-up of how Americans stereotype Brits as [[BritainIsOnlyLondon all being from London]] in movies). When WWF tried to rebrand him as the lumberjack 'Real Man's Man' he had no enthusiasm for their gimmick and it showed (he was also on a lot of drugs at the time). When he came back, he did so on the condition that he could resume his EvilBrit gimmick (albeit changing his name from Steven Regal to William Regal) and that WWF would play it up for all its worth.

** ReyMysterio has noted in his book that Eddie was so instrumental in bridging the gap between Mexican and American wrestling that he was regarded as a legend and huge face on both sides.

* Many Asian-American critics dislike the Franchise/CharlieChan franchise because of its {{Ice Cream Koan}}s, {{Yellowface}} (despite in the first iteration, the actor was actually 1/4 Mongolian), misrepresentation of Chinese culture, [[AsianSpeekeeEngrish broken English]], and the title character's alleged subservience to whites. However, he's also a brilliant, law-abiding detective [[FairForItsDay in a time]] where most Chinese characters were [[YellowPeril villains]] and some of his Ice Cream Koans are ActuallyPrettyFunny. Plus, Chan is the hero of series, always defeating the villain. Also, while Chan is a stereotype, his children are shown as being all-American kids and were played by actual Asian actors. This has earned the franchise a few Asian-American defenders, including actor Keye Luke. Also, the series was enormously popular in East Asia. The popularity in East Asia could also due to ValuesDissonance. The use of color-face (blackface, whiteface, yellowface) isn't seen as offensive as in the US, especially if it's not used spitefully. A commercial by Nippon Airline had an actor dressing up in whiteface for a gag, and most Japanese didn't see the problem (it wasn't clear if there was a difference between the opinions of white and yellow Japanese, since only nationality was noted, not the race), and an English competition in China featured middle school students dressed as "foreigners".

** The episode "The Last of the Meheecans" was very well received in Mexico too.

** The episode "The Last of the Meheecans" was very well received in Mexico too.too, presumably because despite Butters dressing up in {{Brownface}} as a Mexican stereotype, it promotes patriotism and nostalgia towards Mexico and mocks the whole illegal immigrants panic in America.

** Also, while the [[NoExportForYou eighth season and beyond was not dubbed for them,]] South Park's sizable Japanese fanbase loves the episode ''Good Times With Weapons'', which is an AffectionateParody of anime. The song in said episode, [[IntentionalEngrishForFunny "Let's Fighting Love"]], which is in real but nonsensical Japanese, has reached MemeticMutation levels on Nico.

** The first 16 or so episodes of ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'' take place on the North American Continent with the majority of the characters being North Americans and actually ''[[SubvertedTrope not]]'' being {{Eagleland}}ers. Characters are enjoyed for their diversity and the series has built up something of a positive reputation in North America despite {{Bandai}} reluctance in [[NoExportForYou bring the series to North America.]] (Which they eventually did.)
