* [[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.)

* Centorea Shianus, the centaur-girl from ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', can be considered this since she has all the [[PhenotypeStereotype visual traits]] associated with Nordic/European foreigners (flowing blonde hair, blue eyes and [[GagBoobs a big bust]]) and yet she's the only one in the house to live in a Japanese-styled room complete with tatami, appears to be knowledgeable about anime tropes like CrashIntoHello, and recognizes slimes as a species from old-style [[EasternRPG JRPGs]].

* The "J-Pop America Funtime Now" sketches on ''SaturdayNightLive'', featuring two college-age anime fans who've added "-San" onto their very non-Japanese names.

* As RegularCarReviews' Mr. Regular explains, anyone who would willingly try to acquire a Toyota AE86 has to be one of these. It was never sold in the United States, so it needs to be imported; it's right-hand drive only, it's not very powerful, and it features technology no newer than 1987. But it was ''[[CoolCar the car]]'' from ''InitialD'', so to that limited group of fans, it's worth it.
