* ChineseLaborer - Thousands of young Chinese men migrated to western North America and Australia in the hope striking it rich off the [[GoldFever gold rushes]] of the mid-19th century. They quickly became resented for "stealing" jobs from British and American workers, particularly the more successful individuals. The fact that some did well for themselves, and almost all of them were men, led to seemingly well-founded fears that [[MalignedMixedMarriage Europeans in both countries would be 'out-bred']] by the YellowPeril - since foolish, easily-swayed (and impoverished) European girls in both countries were obviously too illogical and hysterical [[EntitledToHaveYou to be trusted to do the right thing and marry another European]].
* ChineseLaunderer - In TheWildWest, and the 19th century inner-city slums of Britain, many launderers ethnic Chinese and were just as frowned upon as the laborers.

In '''Japanese media''', Chinese people often have a [[NationalStereotypes much more specific depiction]]. They have prominent roles in many anime, especially in fighting anime. Not surprising, given the length of China and Japan's relationship, plus the fact that [[CaptainObvious there are a lot of Chinese people on the planet]]. Very seldom born in Japan, members of this trope are usually from mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan. Often drawn in anime with narrower eyes, though this may not be the case with a main character or cute AnimeChineseGirl. Hei from ''DarkerThanBlack'', who frequently has "[[{{Mukokuseki}} normal eyes]]", is a case in point, with every other Chinese character in the series appearing with narrower than normal eyes.

* ChineseLaborer - Thousands of young Chinese men migrated to western North America and Australia in the hope striking it rich off the [[GoldFever gold rushes]] of the mid-19th century. They quickly became resented for "stealing" jobs from white workers, particularly the more successful individuals. The fact that the vast majority of Chinese immigrants were men also made [[MalignedMixedMarriage the prospect of "interbreeding of people of different racial types"]] a fear among white Americans and Australians.
* ChineseLaunderer - In TheWildWest, and the inner-city slums of England, many launderers were Chinese in origin, and were just as frowned upon as the laborers.
* ChinaTakesOverTheWorld - [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Yep.]] Because with [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld Japan]] [[Analysis/JapanTakesOverTheWorld not what it once was]], global conquest predictions have to go ''somewhere''.

* TheTriadsAndTheTongs - Will often be part of families, or organizations with a lot of power and wealth, implied to be the Triads. Eg. Mr. Chang from ''BlackLagoon'', the Tao family from ''Shaman King'', or the Li family from CCS.

* VerbalTic - They will be portrayed with particular speech idiosyncracies (such as ending sentences with ''"aru yo"''), although there's a decent chance their Chinese will actually be intelligible. This actually had to do with Japanese-Chinese relations in the 1930s. When Chinese people in Manchuria[[note]]Where the Japanese established a puppet state called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchukuo Manchukuo]][[/note]] try to speak Japanese, they sometimes pronounce it incorrectly, and also use the word "aru" and the like. The Other Wiki has an article on this pidgin language, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyowa-go Kyowa-go ]] (協和語)
