* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'''s ChristmasEpisode had the Kanker sisters play with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_cracker Christmas crackers]], a tradition common in Canada (where the show is made) but mostly unheard of in the U.S. (where the show is set).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is made in Europe, mostly London, but set in the United States Elmore is eventually shown to occupy the space that is taken up in real life by Vallejo, California (the place where most of the show's [[MediumBlending photographic backgrounds]] come from). It's convincing enough that the majority of ''American'' viewers don't notice this, but several things slip by, mostly background details like cars sometimes driving on the left or signs using British word spellings.

[[WeAllLiveInAmerica/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball There are so many examples for this show that it actually has its own page]].

* In the PAL English version of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for Wii U'', released in the UK and Australia, Wailord's trophy mentions that it can dive down a distance over twice the height of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Nevis Ben Nevis]]. Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles and well known in the UK, but almost unknown outside of it. The NTSC English release uses general terms for this trophy, which makes you wonder why the PAL writers didn't do the same.

* A minor example from ''Franchise/HarryPotter''. [[AllThereInTheManual Supplemental materials]] state that the American wizards' school, Ilvermony, is divided into four houses much like Hogwarts. Dividing boarding schools (and even regular schools) into houses is common in the UK but very rare in the US.

** Although Stark is super intelligent, it isn't a stretch to assume he is rather better read than most Americans, and thus aware of Japanese culture.

* The ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot'' series is ostensibly set in an Australian archipelago, but since the series was made by American company Naughty Dog, most of the characters speak with American accents and the locations are quite unusual for the setting. Later games zigzag this, being made by British and Canadian developers, but still featuring a heavy American influence.

* In ''Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas In July'', Frosty feels that for their own safety, he and his family had better head north before the Fourth of July fireworks display. His children call his patriotism into question. Putting aside that Frosty was technically born in the US, he and his family are residents of the North Pole only coming down to visit, and have no real reason to be patriotic towards America.

* ''WesternAnimation/TarzanAndJane'''s London is mostly okay, but there's a few oddities like cars sometimes driving on the right, a low bridge which has a yellow-diamond warning sign on the lead up (but a British red-triangle sign on the bridge itself), and a poster saying "Visit the London Zoo" (a real poster might say "[[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/99/9e/2b/999e2b83f67fa9b8d41126c1d76648ab.jpg London Zoo]]" or just "[[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/e0/55/f9/e055f9b6315b5ffd67f51a40d4f297be.jpg the Zoo]]", but never both.)

* In an issue of ''[[TheUltimates Ultimate Avengers]]'', Comicbook/WarMachine tells the second Comicbook/BlackWidow not to refer to their teammate Tyrone (the original [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]]) as an "African-American" since he comes from England. Widow responds by saying she's still not comfortable saying "black", and asks if she can just call him "African-English".
