* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has the BigBad of Part 7, [[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.

* While good ol' ComicBook/CaptainAmerica was originally conceived as essentially propaganda, over the years he's been developed and deconstructed in enough ways to remain sympathetic to foreigners and internationalists.
** Many of his contemporary counterparts like the U.S. Agent tend to represent the more extreme side of this trope.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "[[Recap/SouthParkS5E9OsamaBinLadenHasFartyPants Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants]]" pokes fun at UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden throughout most of the episode, but it also satirizes the paranoid atmosphere of the War of Terror and shows that the Afghans are mad at the USA because US air forces build their military bases on Muslim Holy Ground. Yet in the end the children do salute a miniature American flag.

* 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 [[AIIsACrapshoot 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 in general, even Genji who is a cyborg but still has human elements and Zenyatta who wants nothing more than peaceful human-Omnic relations.

* ''Film/{{Army}}'' is a very subtle example. It was commissioned in 1944 by the Imperial Japanese Army as a pro-army, Patriotism Is Good film. But director Keisuke Kinoshita was an anti-war liberal, so he snuck in a subtle Patriotism Is Bad message. Sometimes, it's subtle, like when two ArmchairMilitary idiots have a ridiculous argument over whether the Mongols could have conquered Japan 650 years earlier--one gets very angry when the other suggests that, well, they could have. At other times the Patriotism Is Bad message is more overt and dramatic, like when a panicking, sobbing mother tries to fight her way through a cheering crowd to get one last look at her marching son before he goes off to war.

** The Enclave in general tended toward this (along with OppressiveStatesOfAmerica) during the final days of the Old World, and only got worse in the post-apocalyptic era, to the point of having to be taken down in ''Fallout 3''.

* 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.)
