Elsewhere, they are still a strong luxury brand.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** The title character is basically ignored in his hometown at first. He actually aspires to be the Hokage, or leader of the village ninja, just to make sure he gets noticed. ''[[CatchPhrase Acknowledged.]]'' This is apparently a major factor in how Akatsuki could capture jinchuuriki; most are outcasts from their villages and so receive no help.
** Averted with regards to [[spoiler:Gaara, Naruto, and Bee. Through hard work and unwavering will, they proved themselves to their villages and became beloved heroes, in spite of initial hatred]].
** Naruto was disliked for his association with the kyuubi and for being annoying as a kid; he seems to have mostly overcome this during the chuunin exam, between his fight with Neji and his defeat of Gaara, but he leaves town not too long afterward and when he comes back all his old peers outrank him. He's not actively approved of generally until after he defeats the guy who flattened the town.

* Dante Alighieri was Florence’s ButtMonkey (when his natal city declared an amnesty for all the exiled politicians, he was the only one not included). He begged all his life to return, but he never could. He died in Ravenna in 1321. When they realized Dante was [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative the greatest modern Italian poet]], Florence came to regret Dante's exile, and made repeated requests for the return of his remains. The custodians of the body at Ravenna refused to comply, at one point going so far as to conceal the bones in a false wall of the monastery. Nevertheless, in 1829, a tomb was built for him in Florence in the basilica of Santa Croce. That tomb has been empty ever since, with Dante's body remaining in Ravenna, far from the land he loved so dearly.

* 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.

* During the 80s, the Boston Celtics won several championships and were by far the city's most popular sports team except with the city's black population due to the fact their biggest stars (Larry Bird, Kevin [=McHale=], Danny Ainge, etc) were all white. Magic Johnson, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers, the team's most hated rival, recalled running into a group of black teenagers when the Lakers arrived in Boston for a game and being shocked when they told him they hated the Celtics and were rooting for him and his teammates.
