Added DiffLines:

* Jonathan Gresham in Search And Destroy, although this wasn't by design so much as [[RealLifeWritesThePlot circumstance]]. One other did briefly make it to TV, but Wrestling/LioRush was PutOnABus due to an attack from Shane Taylor of The Rebellion.

* Of the foreigners who came into Wrestling/{{FMW}} for ''Texas Street Fight'', [[Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} Sweet Georgia Brown]] became this among the FMW women's division. She spent an even longer time as the black one of the WWF's women's division until [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]] debuted.
* Kenny King in the Full Impact Pro PowerStable Young Rich And Ready For Action. Kenny ''could'' be considered one of the "main" members, mostly by virtue of representing the group in Wrestling/RingOfHonor but nonetheless the rest (Jason Blade, Portia Perez, Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli, The Lovely Lacey, Sal Rinauro, Radiant Rain, Wrestling/{{Daffney|Unger}}, Steve Madison, Becky Bayless, Chasyn Rance, [=SoCal=] Val, [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters etc]]) were all white.

* Concerning SHINE PowerStable Las Sicarias, it is easy to forget Amanda Rodriguez is "The Peruvian Princess" when every other member (Wrestling/IvelisseVelez, Wrestling/LaRosaNegra, Wrestling/TheaTrinidad, Wrestling/MercedesMartinez) is Puerto Rican and 2/3rds of them [[PatrioticFervor are loud about it.]]

* ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series' Constructed world of Strangereal seems to have no [[FantasyCounterpartCulture equivalent]] of Africa or East Asia, yet some token characters obviously representing those region's ethnic groups are often included:
** The SeriesMascot Kei Nagase is the most egregious case, having appeared in some form (i.e. as one of mostly unrelated women who just happen to have exact same name, looks, and similar personalities) in ''VideoGame/AceCombat2''/''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizonLegacy'', ''VideoGame/AceCombat3Electrosphere'', ''VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies'', and ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'' -- despite being the only apparently-Japanese person in world where no Japan exists (she also pops up in ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon'' and ''VideoGame/AceCombatInfinity'' but those are set on alternate Earths, making her appearance more plausible, if still token).

** As noted, no equivalent of Africa exists in Strangereal, so Keith Bryan from ''VideoGame/AceCombat3Electrosphere'' and Marcus Snow from ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'' seem to be the only black guys in the world so far.

* Parodied in Token Black (formerly named Token Williams), the only black kid in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', who is actually considered the token ''rich'' kid in-universe (only Cartman seems to call attention to Token's blackness; of course, Cartman has been shown to be quite racist). And his parents own the Hooters {{expy}} restaurant Raisins. Which is done as a deliberate subversion of this trope.

* While the 2006 historical film ''Film/{{Flyboys}}'' was already heavily criticized for its historical inaccuracies relating to its World War I setting, one of the more amusing ones came from the film's fictional Token Minority, Eugene Skinner, a black boxer who joined the squadron to 'pay back' his adopted homeland. Mainly because the end of the movie showed a picture of the real-life squadron which was composed of exactly zero minorities. A rare moment where a film actually seems proud to reveal when it didn't do its research. TheOtherWiki's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flyboys_%28film%29 entry on the film]] points out that the film confuses the Lafayette Escadrille with the Lafayette Flying Corps with whom Eugene Bullard (the real person Skinner was based on) actually flew.
