True, but not relevant to this trope.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'' has some of the most Japanese "Americans" ever seen. At least once, a member of a crime family bows to another member - his subordinate, no less. Most of the Americans' names are completely fake-sounding (though a few do manage to at least be similar to actual American names). Every mafia thug knows exactly what a {{Shinigami}} is.

* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'', though it's set in Italy, had many of the adult handlers be quite reserved towards their charges, probably causing ValuesDissonance for any Italian viewers. They even bow sometimes. The girls don't act much like typical Italian girls, either.

* DanBrown's ''Literature/AngelsAndDemons'' for some reason has a British camerawoman for the [[Creator/TheBBC British Broadcasting Corporation]] referred to as "African American". Her partner is also allegedly British, but seems to think and speak using an awful lot of American terminology and in an ImagineSpot he likens himself to Dan Rather -- who is almost totally unknown in Britain. Even if the reporter has heard of Rather by virtue of his job in TV journalism, if he were really British he would have likened himself to Trevor [=McDonald=]. ** Dan Rather spent several years as the CBS News London Correspondent, so it's ''very'' possible that the guy had heard of or possibly even ''known'' Rather. But that doesn't mean he wouldn't rather be Trevor [=McDonald=]!

* ''SailorNothing'' is supposedly set in Japan, but the characters constantly refer to ''American'' media and pop culture. Some of this is understandable, some not; HunterSThompson is famous, but why would Shin compare something to an NBC sitcom?

* There is a ''{{Shiki}}'' fanfic in which the residents of Sotoba do nothing remotely Japanese and seem more interested in the GaryStu lead's attempts to introduce Halloween to them than they are in their own religion and traditions. * Reading an ''[[Series/TheXFiles X-Files]]'' fic that has the very American {{FBI}} agents Mulder and Scully using such a high density of Britishisms that an American reader can barely figure out what they're saying is more than a little brain-bending. It could make sense in the case of Mulder, seeing as he went to college in England (though he never says anything in the show to give one the impression he adopted British culture to any degree). Scully, however, has no excuse. Ironically, the opposite would be true of their actors. Gillian Anderson spent some of her formative years in England and slips into a British accent easily in real life, while David Duchovny has lived all his life in the States.

* The ''Film/HunchbackofNotreDame'' fic ''Fanfic/BackToTheFrollo'' has the [[MarySue protagonist]] playing baseball with the medieval Parisian kids, eating/preparing foods exclusive to the midwest, wearing modern American clothing that would shock a medieval Parisian, and even sharing American Civil War history with Quasimodo. Despite all that, none of the characters find her behavior shocking or inappropriate.

** ''VideoGame/SimCity'' also has the city responsible for power plants and many other things that would in most places be run by private companies or are municipal services. Admittedly, big plants are mostly in private hands.
