* This has been a major part of Wrestling/KennyOmega's gimmick for the longest time, [[FunnyForeigner especially when he works in Japan]] as a part of Wrestling/DramaticDreamTeam or Wrestling/{{NJPW}}. He's a humongous fan of Japanese video games, particularly Creator/{{Capcom}} games like ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', which he's taken ideas from for his move names, such as his "[[VideoGame/StreetFighterV V-Trigger]]" knee and his "[[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Flash Man's Time Stopper]]" enzuigiri. Even when he [[FaceHeelTurn turned heel]] and became a member of Wrestling/BulletClub (a group of [[ForeignWrestlingHeel Foreign Wrestling Heels]]), it's clear that the otaku in him is still there, even when he denounces Japan in the process.

* One common label for people of this ilk that is employed on imageboards is [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcultures/weeaboo weeaboo]], a term derived from one of the strips from the [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/29097 Perry Bible Fellowship]] as a result of a word filter. The term has persisted since then.

* ''[[VisualNovel/GoGoNippon Go! Go! Nippon!]]'' is a visual novel made in Japan specifically for the foreign market, and its main character (unnamed and featureless, since it's a stand-in for the player himself) is an otaku coming from an unnamed, but definitely Western, country.

* Lindy Harlaown from ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', although she's [[HumanAlien more foreign]] than most examples. She drinks green tea (incorrectly), has a room on her ship set up to look like a Japanese garden (complete with TheThingThatGoesDoink), and is aware of MagicalGirl Anime. The second movie ramps it up when she's shown to own a paper lantern, a tengu mask, a sai, a teapot, and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers a log with shuriken embedded in it]].

* ''Otaku Dad'' focuses on the titular Otaku Dad, a weeaboo from a rich family who builds a typical Japanese High School in the middle of the United States so his daughter can have the archetypical Japanese High School student experience.

* The UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh's font support, revolutionary in the 1980s, was inspired by Japanese calligraphy after Steve Jobs dropped on a calligraphy class at Reed College in the early 1970s.

* [[NoMoreHeroes Travis Touchdown]] is the very embodiment of this trope, down to his pink MagicalGirl t-shirt and beam katana. That's right, he has a ''working LaserBlade'' that he won off an online auction. He uses it to kill stuff.

* Despite providing the popular Alternate Name for this trope, [[http://pbfcomics.com/71/ "weeaboo"]] as shown in ''ComicStrip/PerryBibleFellowship'' seems to be some kind of humiliating ritual hazing. The name comes from FourChan wordfiltering "wapanese"[[note]]"White + Japanese" as in white people who try to act Japanese[[/note]] to "weeaboo", and it spread from there.
* ''WebComic/MuhPhoenix'': Comicbook/IronMan and Comicbook/CaptainAmerica are portrayed as two obsessive anime fanboys. Though they seem to be more into hentai rather than normal anime.

** Incidentally, in the ''TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'' movie, it was shown that Beast Boy can't read Japanese, or even know what Otaku means. (He still ends up charming some schoolgirls, though.)
