* Blu-Ray recorders (as in, [[RecycledInSpace a device like a VCR, except it uses recordable blu-ray media and records in HD!]]) are at the moment only found in Japan, the UK, and countries with strict anti-monopoly laws like Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand. This is probably caused by the device's price range (Blu-Ray writers still aren't cheap), and lobbying of various Pay TV providers and studios since giving consumers the ability to record a show in HD eats into the revenue stream of video-on-demand and Blu-Ray/digital download sales.

** Ditto with Kit Kat in the United States under the Hershey license rather than Nestle. Although, you can still find Japanese import flavors in Asian grocery stores.

* Blackcurrants are considered a staple fruit flavor in Europe, especially the UK, right alongside other staples like strawberry, grape, orange, lemon, cherry, and the like. If you are an American, whether North or South, chances are you've never eaten anything blackcurrant-flavored. This is because everything blackcurrant-related, including the plants themselves, face restrictions or bans from entering the Americas due to their potential as a disease vector for white pine blister rust, which caused epidemics in the early 20th century and scared Americans of the time enough to never bring blackcurrants over again. Recently, however, processed blackcurrant products, like drinks and jam, have made their way over in limited quantities, and a breeding program in Vancouver is dedicated to producing a strain that won't spread the disease and has acceptable-quality fruit. Hence, presently, blackcurrants are on their way up to BadExportForYou, with the breeders hoping to get above that.

The blackcurrant flavor of Skittles is even renamed to grape in the US, despite the actual flavor not being changed at all.

* The {{Nokia}} N9 is the semi-successor of the famous geek toy N900 and runs the next version of the [[{{UNIX}} GNU/Linux]] distribution Maemo. Its development had just been completed when Stephen Elop became Nokia's new CEO. Being a Steve Ballmer-era Microsoft puppet and about to switch Nokia's entire smartphone portfolio to Windows, he just had to prevent the release of a phone booting the arch-enemy OS. He was convinced in the end that the N9 cost a lot of money to develop that Nokia shouldn't write off as a total loss. So he did allow the N9 to be sold, but only on a few select small markets like Finland itself, the Netherlands or Switzerland, so that this Linux phone wouldn't see any widespread success.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] by the German retailers Cyberport and [=Saturn/Media Markt=] who imported large quantities of [=N9s=] from the Netherlands to sell them in Germany. They must have seen some potential in that phone, maybe because it was geek bait (up to [=64GB=] of Flash memory meet a Debian fork), maybe because the [=16GB=] version was available in three colors not offered by any other manufacturer.

** Adding Wendy's to the list of fast food restaurants that have left Malaysia. This one stands out because it came in the late 80s along with White Castle, but left earlier. Then it came back in the early 2000s, but now it has left again.

** For the North American market, it will be upscale brand German station wagons and hatchbacks, and it is especially true for many high performance models. Since the US uses a completely incompatible vehicle safety standard from the rest of the world [[labelnote:note]]The US uses FMVSS crash test standard, where as rest of the world uses UN's ECE standards. Canada's CMVSS is largely similar to that of the FMVSS, with a few alterations that accepts ECE standard parts such as headlights.[[/labelnote]], therefore manufacturers are very selective about the vehicle models that the American market will receive. For example, neither the Audi RS 6 and the RS 3 hatchback were available in North America, but the mechanically identical fastback sedan RS 7 and the sedan version of the RS 3 are available. In general, the stigma attached to station wagons and hatchbacks prevents manufacturers to export these vehicles to the North American market as they can't justify the cost for homologation with a low sales volume.
