* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' is the only HumongousMecha anime show you can count on anybody knowing about. Depending in the country, people may or will know about or have heard of ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' (or ''Anime/{{Robotech}}''), ''Anime/GoLion'' (or ''Anime/{{Voltron}}''), ''Anime/MazingerZ'' (or ''Tranzor Z''), ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' (or ''Anime/{{Grandizer}}'', ''Goldorak'' or ''Goldrake''), ''Manga/GetterRobo'' (or ''Starvengers''), ''Anime/KotetsuJeeg'' (or ''El Vengador''), ''Anime/CombattlerV'', ''Anime/VoltesV'', ''Anime/{{Daimos}}'' (or ''Starbirds''), ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', and newer {{Mecha Show}}s will often include cameos or shout-outs to any of them. The rest of HumongousMecha series are mostly known to anime mecha fans, only.

* If you're lucky enough to catch an anime reference in western media, chances are it'll be to ''Manga/DragonBallZ'', ''Manga/{{Pokemon}}'', or ''Manga/SailorMoon'' by virtue of being massive phenomenon in the '90s.

* To a number of anime fans, all Japanese "anime" is ''Manga/{{Akira}}'', ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'', ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', or any other show, movie or OVA that has graphic violence, swearing (though that's more of an issue with dubbed anime; it's a long story), nudity, and/or other "adult content" that one (usually) wouldn't see in a western "cartoon". Never mind that the first animated film to be rated X was [[WesternAnimation/FritzTheCat an American cartoon]] [[OlderThanTheyThink made in the early-1960's]].

* Apparently, to those not all that familiar with it, ''all'' {{Anime}} and {{Manga}} are either [[AnimationAgeGhetto geared towards children]] (like ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'') or {{Hentai}}. Which tends to be why fans of anime and manga are AcceptableHobbyTargets. Or more broadly, all anime, as opposed to "cartoons", which anime technically is, is for adults (and thus not appropriate for children), a stigma that exists among both anime fans and mainstream society. It's just the opposite, in fact. Because of cultural and societal differences, what Japan considers "family-friendly" is similar, but not entirely the same as the western definition. Often, those same people use the words "anime" and "manga" interchangeably, or not even realise that the word "manga" exists. (They're used interchangeably in Japan. Japanese people often use the word "manga" in much the same way English speaking people would use the word "cartoon", which refers to both comics, animation, or any other kind of drawing.) * Don't you know? All anime is sci-fi with 50 foot tall neural-interfacing robots.

This is however sadly what a lot of professional US animators (such as is the case with Creator/JohnKricfalusi ) seem to believe, mainly because Franchise/{{Transformers}} was for a long time the only Japan-US collaboration.

* Fans who know about Toei tend to really only think of ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' (AKA: ''Golion'' and ''Anime/DairuggerXV''; two unrelated shows) ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', the aforementioned ''Manga/DragonBall'' (especially ''[[Anime/DragonBallZ Z]]''), ''Manga/OnePiece'', and ''Anime/PrettyCure'' (although that's more specific to Japan). Some might remember ''Anime/MazingerZ'' (dubbed as ''Tranzor Z'' for English speaking countries), or even ''Anime/CuteyHoney'' (and then, fans may likely only know the later OVA from the 1990s), hardcore fans might know that they are responsible for animating GIJoe and TheTransformers.

* If it isn't ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' or ''Anime/BattleOfThePlanets'' (or ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''), then ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' (or rather ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'', ''[[Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada Mospeada]]'', and ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross Southern Cross]]'') was the only show Creator/{{Tatsunoko|Production}} made (and then, the latter may or may mot have been work-for-hire). Some may remember ''Anime/{{Superbook}}'' (which tends to be talked about more than its companion series ''Anime/FlyingHouse''), but may not know that that was a Tatsunoko production.

* The GagDub of ''[[Anime/ShinChan Crayon Shin-chan]]'' includes references to many obscure things, all the way to making a reference to ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER}}''. An interview by one of the writers said they deliberately tried to avoid this.
