** While this example will generally evoke images of Americans writing amine and manga fanfics, a particularly nasty example is a series of {{Real Person Fic}}s written by Polish teenage girls and [[{{MST}} sporked]] at [[http://niezatapialna-armada.blogspot.com/ this Polish blog]], where Americans such as Creator/MileyCyrus go to schools that use the UsefulNotes/PolishEducationalSystem; there they attend Polish classes, then they go back home to talk to their friends via Polish instant messaging clients, and buy stuff on Polish auction websites.

* A very subtle example in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'': some American police officers mishear the name "Rorschach" as "raw shark". This specific mishearing is far more likely to someone with a British accent than an American one because of different pronunciations of the words "raw" and "shark", leading American readers to think the cops were very stupid or that the person talking to them mispronounced the name.

* The ''Kim Possible'' fic ''Fanfic/TheTouchOfGreenFire'' isn't written by an American. It has some slip-ups, such as characters using "bloody" ''way'' more than Americans do.

* The ''Kim Possible'' fic ''Fanfic/TheTouchOfGreenFire'' isn't written by an American. It has some slip-ups, such as characters using "bloody" ''way'' more than Americans do. The characters also use Celsius, not Fahrenheit. Ann being a doctor might give her pass but even then that's pushing it.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' characters from Alola (based on the US state Hawaii) sometimes bow.



* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' takes place in a human settlement on an alien planet. Despite the fact it is New Los Angeles and most characters are American you can [[TheMetricSystemIsHereToStay see weather in Celsius]] and characters bow to each other.

* Most ''Franchise/{{Degrassi}}'' fanfiction these days is written by American fans, whose grasp of Canadian geography and cities seems to be limited to [[CanadaEh stereotypes]]. Two particularly {{egregious}} examples included one which depicted UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}, Ontario as a small town of about 300 people[[note]]The population of Toronto as of 2015 is 2.6 million[[/note]] only accessible by a long bridge over a lake from the United States, and a second which had a character drive from Edmonton, Alberta to Toronto in about eight hours, a trip which should take about a day and a half without stopping (as much time as a trip from New York to Salt Lake City) in real life.

* In one ''WebComic/CyanideAndHappiness'' strip (written by Dave, a British expat), a kid asks the jock pestering him about who his favorite "footballer" is. Nothing wrong so far...but the next panel makes it clear they're talking about ''American'' football. In real life, American people talking about football players would just say "football players".

* Inverted in ''ComicBook/WerewolfByNight'' volume 2. Jack is shown to have a bidet in the bathroom of his small New York apartment. The issues were penciled by Leonardo Manco, an Argentine artist. In Argentina, bidets are a standard feature of homes but they are rare in North America.

* In ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' Vol 4 #50, a young boy in England whose father died of cancer is worried about how his mum would pay the medical bills. Nobody in the UK actually has this worry thanks to the NHS, which (usually) covers stuff like this. Britain ''does'' have private healthcare with higher out-of-pocket cost, but it's a choice rather than the default.

[[https://www.the-medium-is-not-enough.com/2016/04/weekly_wonder_woman_batman_v_superman_teen_titans_.php#more-27875 One reviewer]] looked at this and a few other oddities in the storyline, and came to the conclusion that, in the DCU, Britain actually is a US state, where everything is exactly the same except they drive on the left.

* 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.
