||Geography, as in most HollywoodAtlas tropes, is completely messed up, usually overlapping the Iguazu Falls, the Amazon Forest and Rio de Janeiro in the same place. ||These landmarks are thousands of miles apart. You can't "hop" from Rio to the Amazon River any more than you can "hop" from Miami to the Grand Canyon. ||

Its 2400 miles from Rio de Janeiro to Manaus (capital of the state of Amazonias in the heart of the Amazon rain forest), and you would go from the coast, up to the highlands, across a lot of farmland, hills, swamps, etc before even reaching the rain forest. Brazil is big, roughly the size of the continental US, a fact which is distorted by the popular Mercator maps which tend to exaggerate the size of countries nearer to the poles. ||

||Women have very little freedom, are subservient to their husbands and fathers, do not work outside the home, and are treated as second-class citizens, while men hold misogynistic views. ||Women also are regarded as equals to men. They have the right to vote and participate in government. Women work in all sorts of occupations and many women go to college. However, unfortunately, most men are sexist and don't give their wives much freedom. ||

Brazil is traditionally a patriarchal culture (for example if a husband killed his wife, it was considered okay if he could prove she was cheating on him. This is no longer true), but this is changing. ||

||Brazilians speak Spanish. Their English is spoken with a Mexican accent. ||The official language is Portuguese, and slightly overtakes Spanish as the most spoken language in South America. A Brazilian Portuguese accent doesn't sound much at all like a Spanish accent of any nationality.[[note]]Itchy iz muchy mory orribow - or it is much more horrible, if you make a point of understanding.[[/note]]||

||The Amazonian rain forest spans the whole country and it is the only kind of vegetation seen. ||Brazil has one of the most diverse climates in the world, ranging from rain forests to swamps, deserts, temperate fields and savannahs. It's a lot more like the good ol' [[UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates US of A]] than most people think, except the US mainland lacks a [[TheOtherRainforest tropical rainforest]] and Brazil doesn't have anything most people would recognize as mountains or tundra. ||

* This was [[TropesAsTools intentionally used]] in a "Mugs Shots" segment of the edutainment show ''WesternAnimation/{{Crashbox}}''. In "Mugs Shots", multiple people are accused of a crime but (usually) only one is not guilty. [[ConvictionByContradiction The ones whose alibis contain factual errors are guilty]]. One episode featured a criminal who mentioned going to Brazil. He messed up by saying that everyone there speaks Spanish.

%% * ''VideoGame/SambaDeAmigo''
* The E3 trailer of the game ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'', set in Brazil, had a poster stating "Las Tropas, Unen", which is Spanish (wrong Spanish at that), not Portuguese.
** They fixed everything to be written in Portuguese when the game got actually released.

%% * ''VideoGame/SambaDeAmigo''
''VideoGame/SambaDeAmigo'' features Brazilian FunnyAnimal characters yet the soundtrack is full of Spanish music and the games revolve around maracas.

Portuguese. They fixed everything to be written in Portuguese when the game got actually released.



** The newly introduced Brazilian in SF V is Laura Matsuda, sister of Sean from the SF III games, who fights with what looks like Jiu-Jitsu and uses electric powers for whatever reason. She's explicitly stated to be based on the Brazilian stereotypes, as the series producer claimed that on a trip to Brazil he saw the Brazilian women and they didn't look as hot as the country's fame would led one to believe.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters 94'' has a Brazilian stage set on the Amazon. There is a wrecked helicopter, baboons, and cannibal Indians. There is also a toucan, which is actually a Brazilian native species.
** Even though the [[BadassCrew Ikari Team]] in 94 represents Brazil, none of its members are Brazilian. However, later on fans created the misconception that Leona is Brazilian, and this 94 stage is apparently the only reason for this. Her official nationality is "unknown", as she's an orphan whom Heidern found on a village in a undisclosed part of South America.

** XIV also averts the trope with it's South American stage, which is set on the Iguazu Falls, near the triple frontier between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. It also kinda-averts it with the new character Zarina, who is by all intents and purposes a walking Brazilian stereotype (tan skinned, flirtatious personality, yellow and green {{Stripperiffic}} clothes, fights with a mix of Capoeira and Samba and has a pet toucan) but is explicitly stated to be Colombian.

* The ''{{VideoGame/Tekken}}'' series does it's best to avert this with mixed results. ''Tekken 3'' introduces Eddy Gordo, probably the first fighting game character who uses Capoeira but whose fighting style actually resembles the real Capoeira. His presence alone made the game insanely popular in Brazil, though some players hate him with a passion due to how easy he is to play even by button mashers. He was later replaced by Christie Monteiro, who's basically a female model swap of Eddy.
** As the series progressed, ''Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment'' decided to have all of it's characters speaking their native language. Showing that they did their homework, in ''Tekken 7'' not only Eddy speaks perfectly fluent Brazilian Portuguese but they also introduced a new Brazilian gal, Katarina, who fights with Sovat and whose main characteristic is that she swears a lot. Surprise, not only she speaks fluent Brazilian Portuguese but they even got all of the swearing right!
