* Wrestling/TheIronSheik and Wrestling/NikolaiVolkoff, whom he was VitriolicBestBuds with, showed that this trope wasn't limited to American patriotism. (Volkoff eventually became quite fond of the U.S. as a result of his HeelFaceTurn, and ironically found himself opposed to all-American {{Badass}} Wrestling/SgtSlaughter after Slaughter experienced a FaceHeelTurn and became an Iraqi sympathizer.)

* Aleksandra "Zarya" Zaryanova of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}''. On one hand, she will [[CelebrityIsOverrated gladly drop out of a world-class bodybuilding competition]], forgoing the potential fame and riches to fight against rogue Omnics on the front lines for her country. On the other hand, much like her country as a whole, she is particularly [[FantasticRacism racist]] towards Omnics as a whole, even Genji who is a cyborg but still has human elements and Zenyatta who wants nothing more than peaceful human-Omnic relations.

* Defense Minister Tamagami of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', a Japanese nationalist who wants to purge Japan of foreign influence (especially American, Chinese, and Russian), and will [[spoiler:experiment on unwilling humans or even have the country wiped and rebuilt]] if that's what it takes. Even if he's been [[spoiler:reduced to a BrainInAJar]].

* The Jack Howitzer commercials in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'''s [[GTARadio radio]]. All of them satirical over-the-top parody jingoism.

* Ein from ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' wears a pair of pauldrons emblazoned with American flags. It's not exactly clear whether he's an American or not, but his bravery amazes even Kenshiro, who wears one of the two pauldrons after Ein's untimely death.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has the BigBad [[PresidentEvil President Valentine]], who is at least a competent enough politician to keep [[VillainWithGoodPublicity most of his citizens happy]]. However, he's willing to resort to DirtyBusiness to obtain [[spoiler:Jesus's corpse]] and turn his country into a utopia while dooming the rest of the planet to extreme misfortune. [[FreudianExcuse The reason he goes so far]] is because he wants to live up to his father, who died while resisting all kinds of torture for his country.

* ''TheLegendOfKoizumi'' is made of this trope, Mahjong, and insane amounts of {{Hot Blood|ed}}.
