* ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth:'' The titualr Knights are Cephiro's greatest heroes. But back home in Tokyo, they're just a trio of middle school students. In fact, since they go to different schools, anyone who's heard of one of them will probably not not know of the other two. This isn't a problem until they get back home, severely traumatized but unable to talk about it with anyone but each other.

* ''Series/AshVsEvilDead'': As revealed in Season 2, Ash is shunned by virtually everyone in his hometown of Elk Grove, including his own father, due to the events of [[Film/TheEvilDead the first]] [[Film/EvilDeadII two movies]]; no one believed Ash's story about the Deadites and the Necronomicon, thinking he just went crazy and slaughtered his friends and sister during the weekend at the cabin. [[spoiler: Ultimately averted by the end of Season 2, where he's managed to convince the town of the truth and is now a hero.]]

* 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 ''Dodes'ka-den'' 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]].

** Suffers it elsewhere in the new series: sometimes it doesn't pay to be the guy who is always seen when disaster is occurring, and sometimes it's the fact that a guy who is {{Badass}} enough to ''repeatedly'' defeat the Daleks, the Cybermen, renegade Time Lords, and ''many'' more with nothing but a sonic screwdriver and a quip is kinda ''scary.'' He is TheDreaded to some people who should really be dreading the actual ''bad guys'' instead.

* In the "TotalDramaComebackSeries," everyone at [[ExtrovertedNerd Cody]]'s school [[TeensAreMonsters mocked him]] both for [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy losing Gwen to Trent]] and getting mauled by a bear in TDI. So naturally, he never bothered to look up the show online and see how much the millions of fans were making fun of him...and thus didn't realize that he was actually the show's EnsembleDarkhorse and had legions of fangirls.

He has absolutely no interest in returning home.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. The Doctor. Saves the multiverse more times than he can count, but is still looked upon as a wanted criminal for much of his life (except for those few times he's been elected President of Gallifrey, but even then it ends up with him being charged with treason or some such). Things got so bad that at one point [[LaserGuidedAmnesia the Time Lords wiped the Doctor's mind]], [[TheNthDoctor forced him to regenerate]], and exiled him to Earth with a TARDIS that was sabotaged and rendered useless. Even after he saved Gallifrey from a FateWorseThanDeath, the ungrateful so-and-sos still merely gave him his memory back and allowed him use of the TARDIS -- when he went back to Gallifrey, he was still made prime suspect number one in the assassination of the President of the Time Lords... And that's not even counting the later time when he was put on trial for his life...

* 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.
