* Panzer IV of ''VideoGame/{{Panzermadels}}'' is German, but she constantly peppers her dialogue with random Japanese phrases, and is the only one in the game to use honorifics. She also gets excited when she sees Japanese food in the supermarket.

* As RegularCarReviews' Mr. Regular explains, anyone who would willingly try to acquire a [[https://youtu.be/dNF5sic8WHo Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno]] has to be one of these, especially importing a right-hand drive one from Japan rather than a US-model [[MarketBasedTitle Corolla GT-S]]; it's not very powerful, most of them are rusty and beaten-on after 30 years, 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.

** Rengeis the series' archetype of an Otaku, to the point where her existence revolves around character analysis. It's a little bit scary, to say the truth. She moves to Japan from France to meet Kyoya, solely because she saw a photograph of him and he resembled a character in her favourite game.

* Renge, of ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' fame, is the series' archetype of an Otaku, to the point where her existence revolves around character analysis. It's a little bit scary, to say the truth.
** Variant - When Kyoya and Tamaki first meet Kyoya wonders if he's "one of those westerners who're interested in Japanese culture". But Tamaki is actually [[ButNotTooForeign half Japanese]], although he'd never set foot there before that point.
*** His dad told him stories of Japan.
* Isaac, the Dutch diplomat in ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' is sort of a joking reference to this trope, as he is a Westerner who tends to prefer Japanese culture to his own. He could be called a YaoiFanboy, as he is a StraightGay.
** For that matter, the whole reason he loves Japanese culture so much is because of pre-Meiji Japan's attitude towards homosexuality.

* [[ConspiracyTheorist Ronaldo]] from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' according to his CharacterBlog, [[http://keepbeachcityweird.tumblr.com Keep Beach City Weird]]. He frequently brings up weird anime he likes and owns a $300 replica of the sword from ''Beautiful Girlfriend Satan'' (about an {{Otaku}} who [[DealWithTheDevil sells his soul]] for a girlfriend). In one episode he also removes his shirt to reveal a set of samurai-styled armor underneath.
