* In the episode "The Bull Market" of the ''AceVentura: [[RecycledTheSeries Pet Detective]]'' series, Ace discovers that a stolen Mexican bull has been shipped to Spain. Of course, because there is only [[SmallReferencePools one city]] in Spain, he immediately goes to Pamplona, [[ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans that happens to be in the middle of the Running of the Bulls]]. Except it's only the bulls who are running because the "Spaniards" are sleeping the siesta inside their ponchos and sombreros in the middle of the street. Pamplona is also portrayed as a village of white limed houses in the middle of a desert.

* During the 79th Academy Awards, the show's host Ellen DeGeneres mistakenly identify Spanish actress Penelope Cruz as Mexican. When she learns about the mistake, Ellen apologized to Cruz in her next appearance. The mistake might be the result of Cruz's best friend, Mexican Salma Hayek, also looking like her.

* ''{{Videogame/Duolingo}}'''s Spanish course is identified by a Spanish flag and Mexico's Temple of Kukulcan. In every other course, the flag and the landmark belong to the same country, even when this country is not the birthplace of the language (e.g. the English course shows America's flag and the Statue of Liberty, and the Portuguese course shows Brazil's flag and Rio's Christ the Redeemer).

Fiction writers seem to not just confuse UsefulNotes/{{Mexico}} and UsefulNotes/{{Spain}}, but to fuse them into a strange amalgam of the most general stereotypes of both, much as {{Scotireland}} fuses Scotland and Ireland. Maybe it's because they share [[UsefulNotes/SpanishLanguage a language]] and [[ChristianityIsCatholic religion]], the fact that Mexico used to be a Spanish colony, they both have exotic foods and customs compared to an Anglo-Saxon culture[[note]]And compared to each other, as well.[[/note]], or simply that the author didn't check the facts ''and'' hasn't travelled much, either.

* On a train from Barcelona to Zaragoza[[note]]Or travelling across Spain's central plateau, for the case[[/note]], you might be surprised to see how much the landscape of the Spanish countryside looks like classic depictions of southwestern North America (almost like a [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner Road Runner]] cartoon). It is for this reason--as well as the high availability of dark-skinned, Spanish-speaking actors, that Creator/SergioLeone and other Italian directors of "{{Spaghetti Western}}s" tended to shoot their films in Spain, particularly in Andalucia, since getting to the actual Mexico or United States was simply too expensive.

* In the very beginning of the Creator/DataEast arcade game ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spinmaster Spinmaster]]'' you enter into an airport with a sign that reads ''[[http://www.mobygames.com/game/arcade/spinmaster/screenshots/gameShotId,672370/ Madrid Airport]]'', complete with a waving Spanish flag. RealLife [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madrid-Barajas_Airport Madrid airport]] is ''very'' different of the game's one and to take this UpToEleven, looks like the developers put Madrid in ''America'' instead of Europe.
