** 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 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.

* 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.

** In "The Cryonic Woman", it's noted that Fry seems to fit in more in the 31st century than in his own time period.

* 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.

* Charles Dawson was hailed everywhere as a great scientist after he discovered the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piltdown_Man Piltdown Man]]. In Sussex, his home, hardly anyone paid any respect to him. Of course, once the Piltdown Man (along with a lot of his less famous "discoveries") was exposed as a forgery, everyone realized the guys simply knew him too well.

* The heroine of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' had saved the entire Space-Time continuum multiple times and is shown to be the idol of everyone. Everyone who isn't from the InsignificantLittleBluePlanet she came from that is, [[{{Masquerade}} who don't even know that other worlds exist]]. Also applies to her friend Hayate, who, despite some parts of the Bureau [[ReformedButRejected denouncing her as a criminal]] commands a great deal of respect in general. On Earth, not only is she similarly obscure, but she had no friends until she first met Suzuka in the second season.

* 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 in a metropolis.
** Paperinik, Donald's superhero alter ego, is often taken as granted or treated as a criminal in spite of being the main reason crime in Duckburg is low. This is actually {{Justified}}, as the early stories depicted him as [[WhosLaughingNow a sadistic avenger of himself]] who had no qualms to commit crimes and [[TheDreaded had built quite a terrifying reputation]], and the people of Duckburg remember it.

* In the Creator/MarkWaid version of ''ComicBook/LegionOfSuperheroes'', Triplicate Girl is an outcast on her homeworld because she is the only one to have spent significant periods of time off-world, and thus has developed different perspectives from the rest of her people.
