* The British Prime Minister UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher is internationally seen as an important stateswoman. Magazine/TimeMagazine even listed her among the most influential people of the 20th century. In the United Kingdom however she is a highly divisive if not unpopular figure. In a list of the ''100 Worst Britons'' she was number 3 (compare this to her position in the list with [[Series/OneHundredGreatestBritons 100 Greatest Britons]]: #16). The point was driven across after her death, when some people in England hailed her as a hero, while an equal amount of others actually celebrated her death in the streets. However, many outside the UK, or people within the UK who weren't affected by her policies, do not realise how much damage she actually did to the UK, or simply don't care. It's not simply a case of being divisive, it's a case of ignorance.
** Just how unpopular is she in Britain, you ask? On the week of her death, ''Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead'' was the number one song for UK iTunes.

* Following his departure for the Miami Heat in 2010, [=LeBron=] James' popularity took a huge hit in his home state of Ohio, where he previously played for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He tended to get booed whenever the Heat played the Cavs in Cleveland...but then he returned to the Cavaliers and his hometown. Fans were somewhat split on that (ok, he came back, but does that excuse his initial treason?)...
** ...until the 2016 Finals, in which he led the Cavs to the first title for any major Cleveland sports team in ''over 50 years''.[[note]]The city's last title had been by the Cleveland Browns in 1964. ''[=LeBron's=] mother wasn't even born then''.[[/note]]

* Bjørk. She's legendary everywhere in the Euro-American sphere except for Iceland, where many people know her from childhood and know her family well. Many Icelanders would prefer that she went away to one of these places where people love her, and that foreigners would stop asking about her. (Iceland is a nation, sure, but its small population makes it more of a hometown.)

* The reason [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]]'s financial empire is based in America and not his native Scotland is this: when he returned to the Highlands with the explicit goal to base his financial empire in his family's ancestral village of [=MacDuich=] he found out that not only he had outgrown the rural and conservative Scotland, but also the [[LonelyAtTheTop local inhabitants treated him with contempt and outright hate out of envy]], prompting him to pack and go to a small American village named Duckburg and transform it into a metropolis.

** In Matthew, Jesus goes back to Nazareth, where he grew up. His frigid reception causes him to {{lampshade|Hanging}} this trope. ''But Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honor."'' Things don't go so well because, honestly, how seriously would you take your old neighbor if he suddenly showed up after years of living out of town, going on about how he's the son of God and the new age is at hand? To them, He was just "the carpenter's son."

* The entire Genre of Techno was founded in Detroit, MI; this is not widely known because techno was largely ignored at the time of its creation in America. It barely took root until producers went to Europe, where it exploded. While Techno has gained some recognition in Detroit, it pales in comparison to the attention R&B, Hip-Hop and Motown receive. To this day Techno still remains more popular abroad then at home.

* Music/LimpBizkit was once one of the most popular bands in the United States and helped make NuMetal a mainstream genre. Unfortunately for them, [[DeaderThanDisco it didn't last]] and they've plummeted to near-obscurity apart from a few jokes. However, they still remain popular overseas, particularly in continental Europe and South America. It's to the point where they no longer tour the U.S. due to poor show attendances, but still regularly tour everywhere ''but'' North America.

* In the Russian book series ''Literature/AliceGirlFromTheFuture'', the heroine is a young girl ( 7 years old at the beginning, 13 in the end) who, on her adventures, rescues countless people (and planets) and is thus revered and respected on many worlds, and by some high-ranked officers on Earth. But in her hometown, she is regarded as lightheaded, irresponsible misfit, [[YouAreGrounded is often grounded]], distrusted and belittled.

Later books attempted to somewhat avert it by making her a capable genetics researcher who is at least respected for that.
