* ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' has Kryska Stares, a Solar Alliance liaison officer who will gladly extol the Alliance’s virtues and achievements to the Sunrider’s mostly Neutral Rim crew. Her fervor is Justified, as she grew up in poverty on a Neutral Rim planet with a corrupt government and her living situation was drastically improved when the Alliance liberated her world. While a good person, Kryska’s devotion to the Alliance’s principles blinds her to the fact that her superiors are willing to do some shady things in order to win the war with PACT, and when Kayto tells her that some Neutral Rim worlds (like his own) would prefer to keep their independence even if it ''would'' benefit them to join the Alliance, she can’t seem to wrap her head around his argument.

* A lot of Golden Eyes' motivation in the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI serial ''ComicBook/GoldenEyesAndHerHeroBill'' comes from her love of her country - and for her boyfriend, who is a soldier fighting against the Germans. It's the reason she enlists in the war effort as an ambulance driver, and why she does things like [[http://cartoons.osu.edu/digital_albums/nellbrinkley/7.php#anchor randomly sing The Star Spangled Banner]] while she's on duty. The serial is a PropagandaPiece, so the German enemies are portrayed as sneaky, vindictive, and [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain subscribing to a misogynistic worldview explicitly described as "the creed of the German"]] while the American protagonists are courageous, charitable, and patriotic even unto death: during one particularly dangerous exploit, Golden Eyes is shown [[http://cartoons.osu.edu/digital_albums/nellbrinkley/13.php#anchor clutching a tiny American flag]] to her heart when she's moments away from being executed for espionage by a German captain:
--> "He would shoot her before the eyes of the American sentries of their lines three hundred yards away! Erect above the mud and turf the slim figure stood—a tiny silk flag of her own country clutched close to her heart—her game up! —but her lips smiling! She had fought hard for love and life—but honor remained—hers and her army's. So she smiled!"

* ''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.
