Added DiffLines:

* Implied with Moira from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}''. Her third-person run animation has her holding her arms behind her a la ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'', and her several of her sprays are references to scenes from a variety of anime.

** Played with by Revolver Ocelot, a Soviet ([[spoiler:born technically French]]) agent who obsesses over American culture. He dresses like a cowboy, uses revolvers and named himself after an American wild cat. [[spoiler:It may not surprise you to learn at the end of the third game that he's actually loyal to the US government, and his mother was American.]]

* 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]]. She even moves to Japan full-time after the events of the second season, although that was mainly so her newly adopted daughter could stay with her friends.

* In ''Manga/ZettaiKarenChildren'', The [[spoiler:Ex-Black Phantom Espers ]] are some of the most Otaku-like characters in the series (The two guys are constantly going on about Moe and 2D, the girl is a Yaoi Fangirl), but it is heavily suggested that they are not from Japan. Also one of the [[EagleLand Comerica]] agents is heavily into Traditional Japanese culture, rather than Otaku culture.

* This goes back [[OlderThanTheyThink a lot further than you might expect.]]In the late 19th century artists, particularly French and British artists, loved to emulate Japanese woodblock styles. In many ways, the Japonism of the 19th century helped inspire the modernism of the 20th century.

* ''Manga/{{Otomen}}'' has Mifune Knight, a [[PhenotypeStereotype blond and (presumably) blue-eyed American]] who teaches Japanese history at a Japanese high school, and is obsessed with Japanese history, culture and the true JapaneseSpirit. Apparently he inherited it from his equally Japan-crazy father who actually ''built'' a hilariously inaccurate JidaiGeki ThemePark.
