* ThatGuyWithTheGlasses: Most of the reviewers on the site are American and are frequently discussing super hero movies in fullest detail. To people outside the US who are less endeared about super hero movies this can often come across as being very obsessive over something that is generally children's or in the very least early teenage entertainment. (For that matter, there are plenty of Americans who share that attitude, although they are understandably more inclined to keep their opinions to themselves.) Of course, in the U.S.A. most young people grow up with these types of comics and thus feel very attached to them.

** Being from a more secular country, British viewers can get confused about the LampshadeHanging of Santa Christ apparently being offensive.

* BrowsHeldHigh: Oancitizen's review of "Exterminating Angels" starts with him mentioning that the French are "famously blasé when discussing sex", then showing a clip from Film/{{Amelie}} where Amélie is seen counting couples orgasming at the same time. He is perplexed that the film is rated "R" in the US, but only the equivalent of an "G" rating in France itself.

** It's says a lot that the TGWTG reviewers literally ignored Creator/StevenSpielberg and Creator/PeterJackson's ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'' movie, despite reviewing every other major Hollywood release. Franchise/{{Tintin}}, which is an institute in Europe, is an international bestseller across the rest of the world as well, except in the U.S.A. where it remains a cult favorite. This might explain why the only TGWTG reviewer who actually discussed it was FilmBrain, who is British!

* In the Thai webcomic ''Webcomic/LilyLove'', Donut is concerned that she is ugly because she is supposedly dark-skinned. While this is normal in UsefulNotes/{{Thailand}}, where skin whitening is common, it would be considered odd in western societies, where tanned skin is seen as more desirable. Also in the comic, everyone is called by a nickname, which is normal in Thailand, but quite strange in other places.



* An in-universe example occurs in ''ChaosFighters'', particularly in Lefrad, which consists of continents has different administration systems. [[spoiler:Yedrei-Phlaq confrontation happened an unspecified time prior to the start of the ''entire main series'']], which is partly [[spoiler:due to their leader trying to force their administration systems to others (Yedrei uses monarchy while Phlaq uses democracy.]] As the result, in ''Chaos Fighters-Route of Peaks'', [[spoiler:the government of Tziac sent only ''one'' person to join the main characters' party to eliminate the mountain bandits, fearing of bringing significant casualties to the soldiers, which happened during the confrontation.]] Even other countries merely used long range weaponry to eliminate them, [[spoiler:despite sending slightly more (read: ''two'') people to aid the main characters' party]]. This also leads to another dissonance where in ''Chaos Fighters-Route of Land'', [[spoiler:''almost every country'' in Yedrei continent gave military support of various degree to help the Estau rebel pact, which is a military force to capture Lestreb from the demons' reign.]]

* Youtube singer Fredde Gredde made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDOg07gku0g a medley of video game tunes with lyrics]], including the PunchOut meme N***a stole my bike. Being from Sweden, he didn't see it as being offensive, just as a meme.

Added DiffLines:

* The Creator/{{Nigahiga}} video "How to Be Emo" makes jokes about people getting pleasure from hurting themselves in ways like self-harm (one scene has the emo characters in a knife-fight where they stab themselves instead of each other), and makes emos out to look like obsessive masochists who either have zero emotion or are exhibiting the ComicalOverreacting trope. It was found hilarious at the time it was released in 2007, but has been scrutinized and criticized under new light in the coming years, which is why it has the most dislikes out of any of the old "How to be..." videos.

** Also played for drama earlier when Tavros contacts Jade and casually mentions that he once saved her life when she was a toddler and accidentally shot herself with a flintlock pistol by using his powers to make Becquerel redirect the bullet to kill "an intruder" instead. Said "intruder" being [[spoiler:her grandfather. When Jade reacts in shock, Tavros doesn't understand why she is upset since trolls are not raised by adult guardians and in fact see most older trolls as enemies]].
