* If a pre-80s anime gets referenced in western media, it's either ''Manga/AstroBoy'' or ''Manga/SpeedRacer''. ''Anime/{{Gigantor}}'' sometimes pops up as a third option. Don't expect a reference to any ''Astro Boy'' series besides the original, or to many characters besides Asto himself.
* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' is the only YuriGenre anime that gets referenced most of the time.

* 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. ''Anime/{{Gundam}}'', ''Manga/YuGiOh'' [[note]]mainly in the '00s[[/note]], and ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' might also get a mention.

* Meta example: The Japanese surname "Yagami" is spelt with the kanji for "eight" and "god" -- so, 八神, "eight gods"; it turns out to derive from a placename. However, most Western anime fans first encounter it through [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]], who spells it with the kanji for "night god." This has resulted in at least two [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha similarly]]-[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters named]] characters on this very wiki being written up with incorrect name meanings of "night god." Whoops.

* Amongst Japanese viewers, Eiken (not the anime OVA, but the studio) tends to be known more for ''Manga/SazaeSan'' these days (it IS Japan's [[LongRunner longest-running]] anime TV series). Back when they were called TCJ, they made once show that is still very well remembered in Japan to day: ''Tetsujin 28-go'' (AKA: ''Anime/{{Gigantor}}'').
