* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'' had a unusually (at the series) high variety of races amongst the recurring cast.
* In ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'', a unit of TrueCompanions was formed from rival champions of different countries: American Chibodee Crockett, French George [=DeSand=], Japanese Domon Kasshu, Chinese Sai Saici, and Russian Argo Gulskii.
** And the [[SixthRanger Swedish Allenby Beardsley]].
** And the [[CharClone German Schwarz Bruder]].
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'''s TrueCompanions were Japanese (Heero), United States (Duo), European (Trowa), Arabian (Quatre), and Chinese (Wufei) descendants, though the important nationality distinction for them was that they were all Colonists and not Earthlings.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' uses this trope as well: Setsuna (Soran Ibrahim) is Kurdish, Lockon (Neil / [[BackupTwin Lyle]] Dylandy) is Irish, Allelujah (real name unknown) is Kazakh. Tieria ([[YouAreNumberSix Base Sequence Pattern 0988]]) [[ArtificialHuman has no ethnicity]].

* ''DGrayMan'' ''loves'' this trope. Allen is British, Lenalee is Chinese, Kanda is Japanese, Krory is Romanian, and Miranda is German. It's the same with the bad guys; Tyki is Portuguese, Lulu Bell is French, and Skinn, Jasdero, and Devit are American. Listing all the examples this series has would [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters take too long]].
** Kanda's nationality has never been confirmed, and is always given as 'Japanese?' with a question mark. Recent plot developments suggest he is more likely to have been born and raised in China.
