* In ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'', the suitcase belonging to Kotomi's parents is said to being transferred to other people from various countries, one of them being Indonesia, so the words "If you see this suitcase, please bring it to our daughter." is also said in Indonesia. [[FunnyBackgroundEvent Also, the scene accompanying the Indonesia segment uses Jakarta's infamous congested traffic jam situation.]]

* Indonesians are huge [[TheBeautifulGame soccer]] nuts. Worth noting, however, despite their huge enthusiasm to soccer, the national team holds a record in [[TheWorldCup FIFA World Cup]] for the ''fewest'' matches played. One match, to be precise, in the 1938 as the Dutch EastIndies. So officially, Indonesia hasn't really played in the World Cup. Mostly because even the soccer management department are also pretty rife with corruptions. The one time they did, the team bailed out because they [[EpicFail refused to play against Israel]] (you know, Muslim-Jewish tension and all that, the usual).

* The copyrights laws aren't very strong in Indonesia. Singaporean tourists sometimes visit ITC Ambassador, a crowded and rather claustrophobic shopping mall...market...something in south Jakarta to buy bootleg [=DVDs=](which are sold by at least a dozen stands there)[[note]]Mostly movies and TV series, but also video games. TakeThat, console supremacists![[/note]] and copy the contents into a flash drive to watch at home. Bootleg merchandises of ''SpongebobSquarepants'' and the Malaysian animated series ''Upin & Ipin'' are commonly sold in the streets.

* Much like several Asian countries like China; in the city Jakarta on Mangga Besar district, you can find a rare store where they sell cooked reptilians, including venomous snakes and their organs (don't worry, just stay away from the snakes (especially the head, it can still kill you if it's still moving up to 1 hour after being beheaded, see [[TakingYouWithMe/RealLife here for a similar incident in China]]) and leave it to the pro to cook them). Kind of exotic and actually gives good benefits to the body, but the organs definitely tasted ''bitter''.

* Western, in particular Fried Chickens, and Japanese food are fairly popular in Indonesia, especially those of fast foods. KFC and UsefulNotes/McDonalds are two such examples. Indonesian [=McDonalds=] also went as far as including Fried Chicken menus, that hasn't been in most of [=McDonalds=] in other country.

* [[http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Papaya_Island Papaya Island]] from ''Franchise/DragonBall'', anyone? It is heavily based on, none other than, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bali Bali]]. The manga's author, Akira Toriyama, had a holiday in Bali with his wife and they're impressed with the island. Also, Toriyama got along with a local tour guide named [[http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Wayan_Budhiyasa Wayan Budhiyasa]], hence why Toriyama created a carricature version of Budhiyasa to appear as a cameo in [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manga_budhiyasa.jpg one panel (on the left)]] in the manga as a token of his appreciation for the guide.

* Indonesia has been used as some background stages of several fighting games. ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters 97'' used Bali as one of its background, while ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Tag Tournament 2'' has a Java-based background called "Wayang Kulit".
