* 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. They also did Sailor Moon.

* Speaking of ''Pokémon'': Even though there are at least 150 basic Pokémon species, the great majority of non-anime fans have only heard of Pikachu (most likely because of his mascot status). Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charmander might also be mentioned. It's also not widely known that Pokémon can actually mutate, and that Pikachu's "upgraded" form is Raichu, who is orange instead of yellow.
** Some people think that Pikachu is actually called "Pokemon".

* ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'' is the only soccer or sports manga ever made. Okay, ''Manga/SlamDunk'', ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', ''Manga/YowamushiPedal'', ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke'', and ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'', ''Anime/YuriOnIce'', ''Anime/{{Free}}''' and ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'' are other sports manga but they are the only ones. Seriously.

* 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.
