* Implied in a few NPC thoughts in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' -- they don't specify, but 100-yen ramen is ''probably'' not a fresh bowl from Ramen Don's. Incidentally, that very shop does offer insta-noodles in exchange for a 100-yen ''pin'' (cash not accepted for this product); unlike Ken Doi's other fare, this one is no good for StatGrinding as it only boosts your sync rate.

* In one chapter of [[{{Manga/Area88}} Area 88,]] [=McCoy=] sells Shin a case of cup ramen, which Shin much appreciates as a taste of home. Meanwhile in Japan, Ryoko decides to just have a cup ramen instead of eating anything fancy. The chapter closes with both of them waiting on their serving of cup ramen to finish cooking--Shin with a huge grin on his face.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''{{Discworld}}'' and ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation'', Ponder Stibbons is introduced to instant ramen in a laser research lab at Caltech by Leslie Winkle. He tastes them and instantly realises there are Dibblers on Roundworld. He deduces this because like a Dibbler sausage, you can't believe what you're eating, you sense the plastic pot would be more nutritious and less harmful than the contents, you have suspicions as to what nameless stuff goes into it, and yet knowing all this, ''you still want to eat the stuff''.

* ''Film/TheRamenGirl'', a movie about an American woman who follows her boyfriend to Japan, ends up getting dumped by him and left stranded there, and later drowns her sorrows at a local ramen restaurant. To cope with the loss, she vows to become an expert ramen cook and convinces the restaurant owner to train her in cooking ramen. For some reason she also gains the ability to create empathetic food in one scene. The ability is never referenced again.

* In YuGiOh5Ds, Cup Ramen is specifically stated to be Jack Atlas' TrademarkFavoriteFood. Justified, in the sense that he (along with Yusei and Crow) grew up as an poor orphan in Satellite, and they were so deprived that even eating cheap Cup Ramen is a considerable luxury for them.

* UsefulNotes/{{Russia}}: [[http://www.doshirak.com/ Korea Yakult's]] Doshirak and local Rollton brand, brand,[[note]]Originally of Vietnamese origin, but now throughly localised, though reportedly still owned by the member of the Vietnamese diaspora.[[/note]] although recently Nong Shim started to make a dent.dent. Chinese/Taiwanese brand "Master Kang" and Vietnamese "Choice", "Mivimex" and to the lesser extent "Mivina" (which is more popular in Ukraine) are the locally popular imports, as are the Japanese brands, which are seen as a more upscale product, often costing as much as a freshly made dish of ramen in the Japanese restaurant.



But the familiar styrofoam cups are not a given: they are characteristically Japanese and in foreign markets managed to get a hold mainly in US, so in other countries cup ramen would most probably be imported. The cheaper varieties will most commonly come in bags, which are meant to be prepared at home; but some more upscale types will come in plastic/cardboard bowls or buckets, which are meant to be prepared at school or at work. Most will cook in the same way as the familiar cup noodles (immerse the noodles in boiling water for 3-5 minutes, then uncover), though you should expect to see separate packets for the soup powder, as well as the occasional packets for chili powder, hot sauce, oil, soy sauce, fried garlic, vegetables, vinegar, etc., in addition to the brick of noodles. Some require you to soak the noodles, drain, and ''then'' season them. Some brands require no preparation at all--you'd eat the dehydrated noodles as they are (actually most could be, as they're all ready to eat, rehydration just makes them more palatable). The approach depends both on the manufacturer and the type of dish.

What all dehydrated noodles have in common, however, no matter what country they're from, is that they're symbolic of poverty -- or, at least, not exactly stable life. Which is somewhat ironic, given that initially instant ramen was seen as an upscale product, and cost significantly more than the real stuff. Things changed since, though, and now whether it's the [[StarvingStudent starving university student]], people living alone flooded in debt, or folks who have fallen on hard times, whenever you see someone in fiction pouring boiling water into a brick of rock-hard noodles, you can tell they're hungry for money as well as food. Quite TruthInTelevision, as instant noodles are quite cheap and can be prepared quickly. The somewhat more nutritionally conscious might put in some veggies and an egg.
