* ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'' is the only soccer or sports manga ever made. Okay, ''Manga/SlamDunk'', ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', ''Manga/YowamushiPedal'', ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke'', and ''Mang{{Haikyuu}}'', ''Anime/YuriOnIce'', and ''Anime/Free'' 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.

* 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}}'').

** Western anime fans are often unfamiliar with the delinquent stereotype in Japan, and assume all delinquents are a reference to either [[Manga/YuYuHakusho Yusuke and Kuwabara]] or [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Jotaro, Josuke, and Oyakasu]]. The manga ''[[http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/ebooks/d/MDD10000000018061 Otoko Ippiki Gaki Daisho]]'' stars a delinquent that may have inspired all of the above, and he's from a manga from the ''1960's''. The fact that the series hasn't made it to the States yet may contribute to its obscurity over here.

The manga ''Otoko Ippiki Gaki Daisho'', which so far has never been released in the States, predates both, being from the 60's.
