* ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresII: Rise of the Rajas'' will feature Gajah Mada as the hero of a new included civilization the Malays, which once again makes sense considering that the archipelago that would become Indonesia was called 'Malay' during the Majapahit era, though Gajah Mada occasionally called it Indonesia anyway. True to history, [[DownerEnding it ends with the Bubat Incident and Gajah Mada's career crashing down.]]

* '''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Soeharto/Suharto]]''', the second president of Indonesia. He ruled as a dictator for 30 years and made Indonesia a powerhouse, but in the process also suppressed press freedom, multiple cases of {{Room101}} and TheGulag, and for being ''the'' most corrupt leader in the world. His reign saw the execution of millions of numerous real and alleged communist/communist sympathizers and the annexation of East Timor. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Deposed in almost the same way as his predecessor was]]: being vilified and blamed for everything wrong in the country.

** MemeticBadass: Mad Dog from the film Film/TheRaid. He's pretty much modern Indonesia equivalent of Creator/ChuckNorris.

** MemeticBadass: Mad Dog from the film Film/TheRaid. He's pretty much the modern Indonesia equivalent of Creator/ChuckNorris.



** In late December 2016, a new meme spawns: "OM TELOLET OM!", which is a phrase young people often shout at passing buses, asking the driver to sound the bus horn (it literally means "Honk the horn, sir!"). Some Indonesian internet users spammed the account of famous celebrities like Music/{{Zedd}} and Music/TheChainsmokers with this phrase, thus making the meme gain worldwide attention.



* [[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.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Conspiracy theories aside, a lot of people seem to forgive Suharto after his death. Despite his corrupt and totalitarian regime, Suharto did pull an economic BackFromTheBrink for Indonesia after the 30th September Movement, the reason being the previous president, Soekarno, was a complete ideologist who'd rather stick to his anti-Western ideologies rather than accepting aid from USA. Not to mention, as the above, Suharto also suppressed the tension between Indonesia and Malaysia, in which most citizens have been kinda sick of that, the tension only flared up again once he was deposed (but thankfully in less frontal way than the way it was during Sukarno's era).

Whenever the Islamic Defender Front tends to cause ruckus due to 'religious reasons', people usually lamented with "If this was Suharto's era, they won't have the balls to do it!"
