* ''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.
