* The Wildstorm Comic ''The American Way'' has a 1960s United States defended by the Civil Defense Corps, a team of heroes. An advertising whiz brought on to help discovers the CDC is actually a massive fraud, half the team have no real powers and all thier super-hero "fights" and "alien invasions" are staged for public morale. One fight is set up with the Red Terror, a supposed Communist agitator who's actually an American cast simply because he's of Chinese descent. However, in the middle of the fight, CDC hero Old Glory dies of a heart attack and Red Terror becomes paranoid the public will blame him for it as he played the role of the evil villain too well.

* Starting in 1989, Creator/{{Atari}} ran ''Atarian'' magazine, which, alongside game reviews, previews and interviews, printed the ''[[http://pixelpompeii.blogspot.ca/2015/07/atari-super-hero.html Adventures of Atari]]'', superheroic champion of the company. In the the pages of his comic, Atari would thwart the plans of a Fu Manchu-style mastermind, a Japanese caricature with slit eyes and buck teeth named "Ninja-Endo", to ruin Atari Corp's foothold in the video game market. Unsurprisingly, these comics were published after Creator/{{Nintendo}} brought the {{UsefulNotes/N|intendoEntertainmentSystem}}ES nationwide in the United States and quickly overtook American companies like Atari in video game sales. Also unsurprisingly, ''Atarian'' only lasted three issues.

* Kabai Sengh, leader of the Sengh Brotherhood in ''Film/ThePhantom''. Sengh is a misspelling of Singh, which is Punjabi, but he otherwise fits the trope, and is played by Creator/CaryHiroyukiTagawa, who was the go-to guy for Asian supervillains back during the 1980s and 1990s (he played Shang Tsung in the ''Film/MortalKombat'' movie, for example).

* Kabai Sengh, leader of the Sengh Brotherhood in ''Film/ThePhantom''. Sengh is a misspelling of ''Film/{{The Phantom|1996}}''. (The name was modified for the film to make it sound more Asian; in the comics it's Singh, which is Punjabi, but he otherwise fits the trope, and Punjabi.) He is played by Creator/CaryHiroyukiTagawa, who was the go-to guy for Asian supervillains back during the 1980s and 1990s (he played Shang Tsung in the ''Film/MortalKombat'' movie, for example).

* Before achieving international fame with his children's books, Creator/DrSeuss wrote [[WartimeCartoon political cartoons]] for the now-defunct left-wing magazine ''PM'' during the first half of World War II. Although Seuss's views were generally quite progressive, especially for the era, he tended to paint the Japanese in an extremely negative light, implying that Japanese-Americans were a secret army just waiting for the signal to rise up against America (note that these cartoons were made before the Pearl Harbor attacks). He would later come to regard these cartoons as an OldShame, and expressed guilt over them later in life.

* ''Series/{{Daredevil2015}}'' had some in the first season. The Second season was full of it. They have been called out, but it looks like the Hand aren't going anywhere right now.

* The Chinese crime lord Soo Choy in ''Series/TheNewAvengers'' episode "Trap", who wears traditional Chinese robes and a Mandarin cap and generally comes across as a poor man's Fu Manchu. Not helped by being played by a Caucasian in obvious YellowFace.

** Then again, since ''none'' of the factions in BattleTech are outright "good guys," the Combine and Confederation can just as easily be seen as sympathetic, defending themselves from aggressive and (especially in the Capellan Confederation's case) larger enemies. There are also any number of Asian characters staunchly in the "good guy" camp, such as Justin Xiang Allard and his son, Kai Allard-Liao. On a meta level, BattleTech started off taking its cues from any number of Anime Mecha series, so has a vested interest in not portraying its Asian factions as wholly evil.

* The first album of ''De Avonturen van detective Van Zwam'', ''Het geheim van Matsuoka'', is all about a Japanese enterpreneur that creates a company that serves beer to people that turns them mad. Subverted because ''Marc Sleen'', the creator of the comic, thought that ''Matsuoka'' was the name of the ministry of foreign affairs during UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 .
