* In ''Literature/{{Run}}'', Bo, Colt, and all the Dickinsons are hated by everyone else in the twon of Mursey for being no-good white trash drug-dealing scum. Bo and Colt also seem to be the only good ones in the family.

There are many reasons for this. Maybe you have to keep up a {{Masquerade}}, maybe the heroics you did are in AnotherDimension, or maybe your current cred isn't enough to change how [[{{Muggles}} the locals]] have [[NeverLiveItDown always seen you]]. Whatever the reason, while you're popular everywhere else, at home, you're still just a part of everybody else.

Note that this does not apply to heroes with a SecretIdentity. Their normal persona maybe be unknown, but their alter-ego is clearly famous to the locals. However, a SuperHero who is looked down upon in their hometown, but is widely regarded as a hero everywhere else, does count.

* In the TV movie, ''Film/Ben10RaceAgainstTime'', Ben spends the movie coming to terms with this, as his status as a HenshinHero means that no one knows that any of the various aliens that have been stopping villains all over the country during the summer was him.



* In the live-action TV movie of ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'', the titular character spends most of the time having to get over this.

Which isn't very hard, considering that he's basically a HenshinHero with over this.a dozen different forms. It isn't until [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien the following series]] that he's [[TheUnmasking publicly unmasked]], at which point he's praised for his deeds.

* The same goes for UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev, who is internationally respected for his reforms in the former USSR, which brought the UsefulNotes/ColdWar to an end. Yet in Russia itself he is not held in high esteem because the poverty rate of his country grew quite a lot after the USSR fell. And some older Russians feel that they lost a their global greatness after the mighty Soviet Union collapsed.

* Video game publisher Infogrames is hated in France for making [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames bad video games on licensed properties]]. This was probably one of the reasons why Infogrames nowadays uses the Creator/Atari brand, even if they were loved everywhere else for making great games such as the ''VideoGame/RollercoasterTycoon'' series and ''Franchise/AloneInTheDark''.

* Famed Japanese film director Creator/AkiraKurosawa, up until his death, was [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff far more popular and acclaimed in the West]] than in his native country and was even accused by Japanese film critics of being "too Western". When ''''Film/{{Dodeskaden}}'''' bombed in 1970, most of his small amount of Japanese popularity and acclaim vanished completely and he was considered to be a hack that was beloved in the West for what Japanese critics believed was mere exotica and [[HypeAversion over-rating by their American counterparts]]. After his death, [[VindicatedByHistory his Japanese reputation]] [[DeadArtistsAreBetter increased dramatically]].

* Initially played straight in ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' with protagonist Aloy; she is shunned by her fellow Nora due to being an Outcast, but (depending on the player's choices) she is more readily accepted in lands beyond Nora territory and is more easily able to make friends, on top of majorly helping the Sun Kingdom, past enemies of the Nora, multiple times. Aloy even jokes that she should be called "Aloy despite the Nora". [[spoiler: This gets inverted when Aloy enters and speaks to All Mother, upon which the Nora immediately begin to worship and revere her. [[StopWorshippingMe This annoys Aloy and she quickly]] [[AGodIAmNot calls them out on their hypocrisy]]]].

* The Disney comics are traditionally more popular in Europe than their native United States. However, according to Don Rosa, the confrontation between Scrooge and Soapy Slick in Part Eight of ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'', in which Soapy's riverboat casino was destroyed, was frowned upon by European readers for supposedly making Scrooge look like a Batman-esque vigilante (although Rosa never wrote what exactly happened and constantly maintained that the tale was meant to be exaggerated through legend).

* Dutch people are always baffled about how non-Dutch people cite the "boy putting his finger into the hole of the dike to save the town / day" story at them as if this is part of Dutch culture. Non-Dutch people seem to think this is an established fairy tale / fable in the Netherlands (or worse, actual RealLife events that happened) while it's not. The origins of this fable / fairy tale are unclear, but the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Brinker,_or_The_Silver_Skates#Popular_culture:_the_legend_of_the_boy_and_the_dike author who first formally put it into literature]], is American, and the story is much more well-known outside of the Netherlands (in particular, in the U.S.A.) than within it.
