* ''FreedomForce'' - Minuteman and Liberty Lad are American-themed superheroes. * This trope is the backstory for the Korean characters of the ''SoulSeries''. Hwang and Yun-Seong are soldiers in the Imperial Navy seeking Soul Edge in order to fight Japan and prove their national superiority. Seong Mi Na is trying to prove that females can be as capable soldiers as male recruits.

* A more positive example of American patriotism in the ''Fallout'' games lies in [[WeHelpTheHelpless the Minutemen]] of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', who style themselves after the historical [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minutemen Minutemen]] from the American Revolutionary War. This includes dressing up in longcoats and brimmed hats, using powerful homemade Laser Muskets, and and using old marching tunes in their radio station, Radio Freedom. The Minutemen General's outfit looks like ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's costume as a BadassLongcoat.

* All [[WarTimeCartoon war time cartoons made during World War Two]] fall into this domain since they are pure propaganda with an "AmericaWinsTheWar against the Axis" message. Examples are ''WesternAnimation/RussianRhapsody'', ''WesternAnimation/TheNewSpirit'', ''WesternAnimation/AnyBondsToday'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSpiritOf43'', ''WesternAnimation/BlitzWolf'', ''WesternAnimation/TheDucktators'', ''WesternAnimation/TokioJokio'', ''WesternAnimation/HerrMeetsHare'', ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunnyNipsTheNips'', ''WesternAnimation/PlaneDaffy'', ''WesternAnimation/DaffyTheCommando'', ''WesternAnimation/DerFuehrersFace'' and ''WesternAnimation/EducationForDeath''.

* ''TeamAmericaWorldPolice'' parodies US patriotism, but even more severely mocks the anti-patriotism of Hollywood celebrities. This is made evident in TheHero’s KirkSummation.

[[PoliticalIdeologies Patriotism is an emotional attachment to one's perceived people(s) and homeland(s)]], though people have used the word differently over time and in various contexts. In the 20th century it was also understood as devotion to one's ''[[PoliticalIdeologies nation]]''(-state). How patriotism is portrayed in fiction oscillates between two poles.

A patriot cares for [[PoliticalIdeologies their people over their people's nation]] - they treasure their people, but would never do evil in their name [[MyCountryRightOrWrong if it could be helped]]. Individual people have personalities and worth of their own - nations don't. Nations are just groupings of peoples, communities, and cultures - like paintings on a wall. Nations aren't worth of love or devotion without the context of the people and communities they're made of.

A patriot cares for [[PoliticalIdeologies their nation over their nation's people]] - they prize their loyalty to their nation above all else, and [[MyCountryRightOrWrong would do absolutely anything for it]] (however [[DirtyBusiness reluctantly]] or [[KnightTemplar gladly]]). Nations have characteristics and worth of their own - individual people don't. Individual people, communities, and cultures are just disposable, unremarkable components of the nation - like the cells of a body. They aren't worthy of love and devotion like the nation is.

Every now and then you get a mix, where the blowhard is genuinely loyal and commendable, despite his [[GoodIsNotNice enthusiasm]] [[NobleBigot for wars with other peoples]] - though [[GoldenMeanFallacy genocidal war-mongerers]] don't tend to feature in this category. On the other hand, [[PoliticalIdeologies the various strains of nationalism]] tend to lead writers to portray patriotism towards a certain state (i.e. their own) as good while [[MoralMyopia patriotism towards all others is bad.]]
