* Averted in ''Film/KongSkullIsland''. Among the indigenous tribe living on the island is Marlow, a stranded American WWII veteran. Although the film contains many references to ''Apocalypse Now'' and ''Heart of Darkness'', Marlow is shown to not be the leader of the natives, but more just a kooky neighbor they allow to live with them in their village refuge from Skull Island's enormous monsters.

* Roxton A. Colchester III, though an orange Lutari in ''{{Neopets}}'', is a character created based on this trope - a bold mighty white adventurer accompanied by a white chick and a short Asian sidekick. The Atlas of the Ancients plot even went so far as to say that their adventure is essential to saving the world of Neopia.

** The story of ''Little Patch'', Tyleet´s adopted human son, plays it more straight, although Patch was raised by the wolfrider elves. Because of his woodland skills and other skills, he swiftly "out-hunts and outgraces" everyone in the human village, and eventually becomes their chief. In this story, the ''elves'' have the role of cultural superior beings.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has it present in the main quest. While the races and cultures involved are fictionalized, getting recognized as the Nerevarine of the [[NobleSavage Ashlander tribes]] (and, to a lesser extent, the Hortator of the three Great Houses) amounts to this trope, since your character is a hated outlander and an agent of the Imperial government that has conquered Morrowind especially if your character is not a Dunmer. Even if you are a Dunmer, as an outlander you're seen as a 'cultural' outsider and are treated as such by the people you're trying to get to recognize you.

* Although it's certainly not the only - or even the main - facet of his personality, Franchise/{{Batman}} is a good example. He was trained in martial arts by the Korean master Kirigi and the half-Chinese warrior-woman Lady Shiva, learned stealth skills from Japanese ninjas, studied the tracking techniques of African hunter-gatherers, and bested Ra's al-Ghul in a battle of scimitars.
