* ''Manga/ShootfighterTekken'' has a TournamentArc set in the US and falls into this trope hard, with the announcer denouncing modern problems such as high-school girls going out with older men for money. Not exactly as common in the US as it is in Japan.

* 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.

* Reading an ''Series/TheXFiles'' 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Pittsburgh Backyard and Garden'', a short story by Creator/WenSpencer set in the same world as her ''Literature/{{Tinker}}'' series, featured a Scottish naturalist reminiscing about how the platypus family in ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'' inspired him to become a biologist. ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'' was never broadcast in the United Kingdom.

** Justified in that many Canadians pronounce it "zee", partially due to [[EaglelandOsmosis Eagleland Osmosis]].

** 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 [[TooSoon 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]].

* ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' takes place in a vaguely European setting, with many of its places and characters given western names. While there ''is'' a Japan-like country among the floating islands, and the vast amount of trading done implies some of the cast should be familiar with some concepts, there's still a few times when their knowledge is well over what one might expect. Everyone participates in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Day
White Day]] in March, two of the Dragon Knights go off to a ''hanami'' event in spring, New Years tends to follow Japanese customs (the main cast even gets special kimonos as an alternate skin), and the few private schools we've seen all match up to Japanese high school stereotypes.

* 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.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has characters from all the around the world, but many still use expressions that are rather specifically Japanese. For example, Polnareff is French, but tells a villain that he will be judged in hell by ''Yama'' and mentions the RedStringOfFate when hoping to find a girlfriend.

For example, Polnareff is French, but tells a villain that he will be judged in hell by ''Yama'' and mentions the RedStringOfFate when hoping to find a girlfriend. While there was ample opportunity for Polnareff to have learned of Asian tropes like the Red String off-panel (either in causal conversation with his Japanese friends Jotaro and Kakyoin or during his travels through China prior to meeting them), it would be rather rare indeed for a Frenchman to actually believe in East Asian mythology's judge of the dead to the point of using judgement by Yama as a threat against a villain.
