* ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' has Laurence Blood, Krauser's [[TheDragon Dragon]] and highly stereotypical bullfighter. His stage in ''2'' and ''Special'' is in the middle of a bullfighting arena in Barcelona, with a Pamplona-esque continuous stream of rushing bulls on the background preventing players from changing planes. Oh, and how do we know it's Barcelona? [[EiffelTowerEffect The Sagrada Família Basilica can be seen just outside the arena in the distance.]]

* The ''{{Series/Highlander}}'' episode "Duende" has [=MacLeod=] dueling with another immortal for the love of a Flamenco dancer in 19th century Granada ("duende" is the word for "talent" in Flamenco music parlance).

* The Indian film ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zindagi_Na_Milegi_Dobara Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara]]'' used all the stereotypes but unlike most Hollywood films, they made an effort and the running of the bulls scenes were shot in the same streets of Pamplona where they're actually done. The main theme song, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DV8PUG4vjeo Señorita]]'', does it for the flamenco part.

See also LatinLand, which shares many elements with this trope, due to strong historical and cultural ties between Iberia and South American countries. Sometimes confused or amalgamated (by hack authors) with SouthOfTheBorder into {{Spexico}} due to the same strong historical and cultural ties ''plus'' the similar climate.

If you don't know why this trope fails that much at Geography, you should know that the Running of the Bulls (celebrated on the week beginning the 7th of July on the day know as "San Fermín") is celebrated only in Pamplona. The "Feria de Abril" (April Fair) where women actually dress with tiered spotted skirts and men wear chaqués is celebrated only in Seville. The distance between those cities is ''over 600 miles'', being the former at the north, and the latter to the south.[[note]]And bullfight tradition is ''not'' extended the same way across all Spain. On its northernmost regions is usually less or even far less extended than at center or south Spain, even if you can find there plenty of bovines -but for their milk and meat-. Not to mention that younger generations tend to either ignore or ''vilify'' the practice[[/note]]. Yet in fiction, both seem to happen at the same time and place.

Meanwhile, the [[RegionalRiff music department]] will invariably and uniformingly consist of Flamenco, or something aiming to sound like Flamenco, with Spanish guitar, castanets, tap-dancing and "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cante_jondo deep song]]". In RealLife, this music style originated in Andalusia and the city of Seville in particular. Elsewhere in Spain, it is practically a niche genre associated with Gypsies and Andalusian immigrants and their descendants.



* ''Series/CarolineInTheCity'': In "Caroline and the Secret", Richard and Julia throw a party before they begin an European vacation. The party is attended by "José", a [[TallDarkAndHandsome not quite tall, but dark and handsome]] Spanish matador that pronounces his name like an American ('oh-SAY!!). In his debut scene, he makes several lewd coments about Julia to Richard, despite fully being aware that she is Richard's wife, and then introduces himself with ''"I'm 'oh-Saay. I fight the bull."'' Before the party is over, [[LatinLover he is in Richard and Julia's bed having sex with a waitress]]. [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom Caroline mistakes the woman for Julia, tells Richard]], and he travels to Spain to confront 'oh-SAY! in the folowing episode "Caroline and the Bullfighter", which is made of this trope:

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/ERing'' episode "The General", the [[StockFootage stock]] [[EstablishingShot establishing shots]] of Madrid are interspersed with statutes of Catholic saints and the music consists of Spanish guitar and tap-dancing-like sounds despite the case being about an American general kidnapped by Basque terrorists in Madrid. This general is ([[VillainBall inexplicably]]) held in an apartment next to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autopista_de_Circunvalacion_M-30 M30 motorway]] that looks like a pre-industrial farmstead from the inside.

* Turns up, complete with running of the bulls, in the Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad''. Unfortunately the whole thing is misunderstood by the witches, and after the sight of a small blonde woman walking right through the crowd of bulls as though being trampled to death is something that happens to other people and taking the wreath off the lead bull, the townsfolk decide just to have a flower festival instead.

** Earlier books sometimes mention the "Quirmian bullfighting dance". Since Quirm is "generic Romance country" and usually closer to being France, there's some confusion as to why the dancers shout "With milk!" ("''au lait''".)

* In the Season 5 premiere "Dishpan Man", TheATeam is tasked to solve a hostage crisis by [[TerroristsWithoutACause unspecified terrorists]] in Barcelona's airport. The episode avoids the most full-blown version of the trope if only because it is painfully obvious that it was filmed in [[CaliforniaDoubling the same California location]] as [[NoBudget any other episode]], and with [[WeAllLiveInAmerica the very same props]] to boot. Nevertheless, the area still seems devoid of any civilization and the A-Team saves the day by using Hollywood special effects to create '''fog''', which is treated as something shocking that [[https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3770/9383406577_ebe8e9bbea_b.jpg never happens in the area]] because the climate is "[[ArtisticLicensePhysics too warm]]". The absurdity is topped in the third act by the terrorists' demanding to fly to Gavà, which is [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign right next to the airport in real life]].
