* ''Film/TheOmen1976'': Armed police in the UK operate in special firearm units and are only called in when the situation requires it. Not so, apparently, in the world of The Omen because, at the climax of the film, [[spoiler: Robert Thorn is shot dead by an officer who had been pursuing him for what amounted to erratic driving]].

* ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' is set in the United Kingdom and for the most part the writers did do their research. However, the lone episode set abroad (in Finland, home to Lotte's parents) shows Lotte's family have very typical Japanese traits, such as bowing and saying "Itadakimasu" before the meal. Also, in what may or may not be a parody of this kind of thing, the same episode shows that the lone Japanese character (Akko, the protagonist) strongly dislikes the typical Japanese tradition of having long, hot baths.

* ''USAHigh'' is about a school for Americans in Paris, but even the non-American characters speak American English (in silly versions of their own accents).

* ''Your Fave Is PoC'', a community for headcanon races of non-specified or non-human characters, was an interesting idea but almost every headcanon was from an American perspective, resulting in things such as Mexican characters apparently going unremarked in revolution-era France.

** The film's setting is an ''international'' summit, but it is presided by the city's mayor (with no member of the Spanish national government apparently present), the President of the United States is the absolute star, and the public waves a zillion Spanish flags at him - but only Spanish flags, something much more reminiscent of {{Eagleland}}.This level of flag waving is generally looked down upon in Europe, unless it's the national football team playing. And the film's scene is excessive even for that. Plus, if they want to honor the POTUS and Spanish-American relations, shouldn't they be at least Spanish ''and'' American flags? And what about the other foreign representatives there? Does nobody care about them? It's painfully evident that the writer had in mind an American president giving a speech in the US and only painted a light coat of "but in Spain" over it. The cherry on top of the cake is that the original script was apparently set in Madrid and was written right after the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Madrid_train_bombings 2004 train attacks]], when the popularity of the American president in Spain [[http://www.realinstitutoelcano.org/wps/portal/rielcano_en/contenido?WCM_GLOBAL_CONTEXT=/elcano/elcano_in/zonas_in/dt47-2005 couldn't be lower]]. The only reason the movie took place in Salamanca was because [[ExecutiveMeddling the studio felt that Madrid was not "exotic" enough]].
