** There are also fantasy soaps with side effects that would look outdated on a goddamn PS1 CGI.

** ''Gavan'' is a special case where it was a popular show back then, but many younger people actualy never watched the actual show, let alone know anything about it. However, the MemeticMutation term associated with the show are a general daily life term.

** For ''Franchise/KamenRider'', the original [[Series/KamenRider series]] also was available in VHS, but it wasn't as popular as the other show available in VHS (''Series/DaiSentaiGoggleFive''). It wasn't until the TV Station RCTI aired ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' (rechristened as "Ksatria Baja Hitam"/"Black Steel Knight") that ''Kamen Rider'' became a sensation in Indonesia. ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'', which aired next, also enjoyed huge popularity. In short, just like how Goggle Five is the essential SuperSentai of Indonesia, ''Black'' is the essential ''Kamen Rider'' of Indonesia; and probably even bigger for Indonesian Tokusatsu. So much that, if Indonesian shows decided to make reference to ''Kamen Rider'' in general, they'd use ''Black'' rather than the original.

They even changed the name of the next aired Franchise/KamenRider (though it was technically one of the previous installments), ''Series/KamenRiderSuper1'', as 'Ksatria Baja Hitam Super-1', even if Super-1 doesn't have big black color motif.

Newer translation simply uses Cengkareng Airport, the old name of the latter.


Added DiffLines:

* Several cases of Manga/{{QED}} and Manga/{{CMB}} happen at Indonesia, or specifically, Bali. One cases involves local belief of Leak, a cannibalistic creature.
* Two of the [=Demons/Personae=] in Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei is also taken from Balinese mythology: Barong and Rangda. They are the fusion materials of [[Myth/HinduMythology Vishnu]], which is proper as Bali is famous for having Hindu majority when Indonesia has Muslim majority.

Cue WorldWarII. The Dutch/Netherlands, being an Allied nation, got Indonesia involved in the war, only to be driven away by Japan, ostensibly as an "eastern brother" coming to liberate the nation. Unfortunately, the takeover from Japan can be considered to be as harsh, or even worse than the Dutch did, so either way, Indonesia was still suffering big time. However, charismatic figures like Sukarno and Mohammad Hatta studied Japanese knowledge, then took advantage of Germany and Japan's weakening to declare Indonesia independent. The Dutch tried to reestablish their colony shortly after, following the Battle of Surabaya where Indonesia's fledgling army attacked British Forces for misunderstandings about disarmament of Japanese troops, but the United Nations [[WhatTheHellHero told them to just cut it out and leave Indonesia alone]]. Cynically speaking, the decolonisation of Southeast Asia was in fact a containment measure against the Communists, and the leading independence movement was staunchly anti-communist already.

Added DiffLines:

* There are two Indonesians that got an entry in Website/BadassOfTheWeek. The first is Iko Uwais, for his badassery and action scenes in ''Film/TheRaid''. The second one is from the Indonesian history... but surprisingly, it's not Gajah Mada... It's Raden Wijaya for his screwing of the Mongols and making sure Kublai Khan's last invasion would be the one he got on Singhasari (before he changed it to Majapahit)


Added DiffLines:

** Inbetween them, Raden Wijaya deserves a mention as well. Not a lot can screw off and give the middle finger to the Mongols while in the same time reclaiming his kingdom, and ''get away with it''.
