* In the Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom timeline ''Literature/ThatWackyRedhead'', there's an in-universe 1985 sitcom (called ''Valerie'' and starring Valerie Harper, but nothing like the OTL sitcom of that name) in which Edie [=McClurg=] (see above) plays Valerie's boss's secretary, who is portrayed as cheerful, friendly and ''completely implacable''. And saying "you betcha!"



* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', at a summit of ponies representing cities across Equestria, the representative from the city of [[PunnyName Whinnyapolis]] is shown to be friendly, polite, and when angered, massively passive-aggressive. Her scenes show her alongside the blunt, gruff representative from [[BigApplesauce Manehattan]], for maximum contrast.

* ''Film/NewInTown'' is of the "irritated by constant politeness" variety, with JerkAss Miami business executive ReneeZellweger being [[ReassignedToAntarctica Reassigned to Minnesota]] to close down the local food processing plant. Of course, the constant niceness ends up softening her by the film's end.

* Grace (Edie [=McClurg=]), the principal's secretary in ''FerrisBuellersDayOff'', talks with the standard Minnesota Nice accent and may well be a native Minnesotan, as the movie is set in Chicago, Illinois (a mere two states away). However, she subverts the trope by secretly being mean and nasty, [[BitchInSheepsClothing saying rude things about people when they aren't around]].

** And averted with the rest of the series, which takes place in Pawnee, Indiana, whose population is by and large sort-sighted, bigoted, gullible, fearful, and really ''really'' stupid.

* Crossing MinnesotaNice and JapanesePoliteness explains a lot about {{Seattle}}, which has a healthy influence from both. Transplants to the city complain about the "Seattle Freeze" where the natives are terribly polite in helping you to carry a heavy shopping bag or find a lost dog, but rather cool and reserved to anyone they don't know well.

* ''Webcomice/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob:'' While Generictown's location is [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield left deliberately ambiguous,]] it has a Midwestern vibe to it, and Bob definitely fits this personality type, particularly in the aspect of not wanting to make a big deal of anything.
