In RealLife, it should be noted that white male-asian female is the most common interracial pairing in the United States. But we won't get into the psychology or implications of real people here.

* This trope gets referenced in several of MargaretCho's routines. In talking about how limited acting roles are for Asian women, she joked that as a little girl she thought to herself "Someday, I could be one of Fonzie's girlfriends on ''Series/HappyDays''! Or I could be a prostitute on ''Series/{{MASH}}''!"

* Series three of ''LittleBritain'' featured the white English Dudley and his Thai mail order bride, Ting Tong Macadangdang. [[spoiler: Subverted when Ting Tong turns out to be [[UnsettlingGenderReveal "a ladyboy"]] and, it is implied, [[{{Fauxreigner}} not really Thai]].]]

* The main lands in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' are Nohr, based on a mix of different Medieval/Renaissance kingdoms, and Hoshido, based on Feudal Japan. The Avatar of this game is a ChildOfTwoWorlds, hailing from Hoshido and raised in Nohr as a political hostage, and he or she will seek to either defend Hoshido from a Nohrian invasion or try reforming Nohr from the inside before they take over Hoshido. Either way, the Avatar can marry several Hoshidan people if he/she goes to their side, and so can his/her personal companions and retainers, though the "advantage/disadvantage" side of this trope seriously depend case by case. (And in the case of his/her Hoshidan retainers, Mozu and Kaze, each can marry people from the Nohrian side.)
** Further toyed with in [[spoiler: the GoldenPath known as ''Revfelations'', where the Avatar and his/her group go into hiding with '''both''' Hoshidan and Nohrian armies after them. As both groups mingle under the leadership of [[AllLovingHero the Avatar]], each army member of either gender adds two prospect love interests from the opposite group to his or her pool of prospect spouses, and again more than one cross-cultural romantic support will include discussions of the differences and similarities between Nohr and Hoshido, and won't necessarily abide by the "advantage/disadvantage" stereotypes.]]

* Conscientiously averted in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird''. Phillipe Loren's female CoDragons were originally envisioned as a pair of Japanese twins named Natsuko and Yukako (or [[ThemeTwinNaming Suki and Yuki]] for short) who headed an all-female prostitute gang and basically did all of Phillipe's heavy lifting for him. Head writer Steve Jaros, however, didn't want to play into the "badass Asian chicks that are subservient to an older man" stereotype, so Suki and Yuki were retooled into the Caucasian twins Viola and Kiki [=DeWynter=] and the their gang was merged into Loren's Morningstar.

* Played with in ''How to be a Werewolf". Malaya's parents are an American man and a Philipino woman, but the father is a small coffee shop owner, while the mother is a scientist with a strong degree. Both seem on roughly equal footing in household matters.
