->''"MyCountryRightOrWrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right."''
-->-- '''Carl Schurz'''

This SuperHero is motivated by one thing above all: love of country. He loves everything it symbolizes, all its values, and is damn proud of its history.

[[IdealHero He's heroic]], maybe TheCape, and will normally follow ThouShaltNotKill. Unless it's war, then you can expect him to be on the front line, taking down as many of ThoseWackyNazis and DirtyCommunists as he can. He is a master of the RousingSpeech or can give somebody a powerful GetAHoldOfYourselfMan moment. If he becomes OlderAndWiser, he will almost always end as TheMentor.

No matter how near the cynical end of SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism the major premise is, he will be idealistic. In the FiveManBand he is TheHero, on a SuperTeam or any other kind of [[TheSquad super group]] he will be TheCaptain. He can be very [[GoodIsNotNice harsh and strict]] - TheCowl may not get along with him. The AntiHero should not expect to see him among his fans. If you are a NinetiesAntiHero, better stay the hell away from him if you don't want to get your butt kicked. On the other hand, he is respectful of true patriots, no matter what country they serve - he will quickly recognize that their patriotism is akin to his own. The same goes with dissenters with his government's policies and/or his nation's current public sentiments, if their ultimate principles are in keeping with the larger ideals he values. For instance, if a historical 1960s American Captain Patriotic heard growls accusing MartinLutherKingJr of being a traitor, he'd be first to answer, "No, he is a true American patriot!"

However, all [[GeneralRipper Mad Generals]], [[ObstructiveBureaucrat crooked politicians]], [[PresidentEvil Evil Presidents]], and [[TheMole infiltrators]] from TheIlluminati must remember that he's not [[MyCountryRightOrWrong loyal to government, law or army]]. He may serve them, but his true loyalty is to his country's spirit and ideals. Attack his values, use the symbols he values as a hypocritical excuse to commit injustice, or limit people's freedom with law, and he will be the first to [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight kick you in the face]].

Discovering that his country has fallen and become corrupt is the best way to cause his HeroicBSOD. This is temporary. You can be damn sure he will stand again to restore his fatherland to glory. In case he is forced to [[TurnInYourBadge give up his costume and secret identity]], he will join the army or the police, or adapt a similar superhero identity. He knows there are many ways to serve his country.

Plenty of them, but not all, are {{Captain Geographic}}s. Just because they [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead wear their country on their sleeves]] doesn't mean they're good guys. Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'s enemy Nuke, for instance, who has the flag tattooed on his head, is just a psycho who believes he's CaptainGeographic and of course is no match for the real Captain America.

This archetype was most popular in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks and almost vanished during UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks. Compare TheCape; often there is overlap, sometimes he is both.

Compare PatrioticFervor, TheParagon, CaptainSuperhero, AllAmericanFace.

Note: Many of the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] superheroes mentioned here, who have entered the public domain, have been repackaged in ''ComicBook/TomStrong'' and ''ComicBook/ProjectSuperpowers'' comics.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime ]]

* Played straight, parodied, played for laughs, lampshaded, ''and'' justified with America in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia''. As he is the (admittedly stereotypical) personification of the US, he is deeply loyal to it. He hates Communists and Nazis, and claims, [[CatchPhrase "I'm the Hero!"]] However, he is completely clueless (giving him the nickname AKY in the Japanese fandom, short for Aete Kuuki Yomenai, which roughly means "Doesn't read the atmosphere") and orders his allies to be his backup. [[note]]Although, perhaps his ego is a little justified considering he was swinging ''a full-grown bison'' over his head. ''As a baby.''[[/note]]
* Played with in one of the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' sourcebooks, styled as a collection of news photos from the One Year War, featuring a shot of war orphans watching a ''[[PropagandaMachine Captain ]][[TheEmpire Zeon]]'' cartoon.
** Also ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' as each fighter is characterized along national stereotypes.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, aka Steve Rogers, [[UrExample is the most famous, and greatest embodiment of this trope ever]]. If you need to sum up his deepest values with one line, it's "I am loyal to nothing...except the [American] Dream."
** The "River of Truth" speech in ''Amazing Spiderman'' #537 makes it clear that Cap is ''not'' guilty of blind jingoism; he says (paraphrased) that if someone else, or even the whole country, decides something wrong is something right and tells you to move out of the way, "your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world - 'No, '''''you''''' move.'"
** UltimateUniverse Cap seemed to be a subversion of this in TheUltimates, where he is more a {{Jerkass}} than anything else (patriotic, yes, but to the point of xenophobia), but Creator/WarrenEllis managed to make him a little better, as evidenced here:
--->'''Ultimate Captain America''' to Commie Super-Soldier: Yeah, I'm gonna fight you. You know why? Because I fought beside Russians during World War 2. They were good and decent men, and they made terrible painful sacrifices to save their country. And for their country to then turn around and put monsters in prisons with nuclear landmines... to see people like you, proudly complicit in this nightmare... Yeah, I'll fight you. You've waited forty years for me in this hellhole, I feel it'd be impolite not to kick your head in.
** Marvel has a few other examples: Miss America, Citizen V, Josiah X or Patriot from ''YoungAvengers''(the latter two are actually the son and grandson of one of the guys to wear the mantle of Captain America after Steve Rogers).
** Also the [=Superpatriot=]/[=USAgent=], the original Patriot, the Spirit of '76, the Defender, Jack Flagg, the Free Spirit, American Eagle, etc. The first three especially, since at one point or another they were Captain America themselves!
*** Of course, there's dozens of failed attempts at replicating the Captain America formula for success (or prototypical attempts that didn't fare well either). Anti-Cap (the Navy's Super-Sailor), Protocide (Failed early attempt), GI Max, Nuke, the 50s Cap who went crazy, etc.
** [[ComicBook/DarkAvengers Iron]] [[ComicBook/DarkReign Patriot]] is supposed to [[AmericanRobot look like one]], but is the ultimate perversion of this.
*** The MCU treatment of "Iron Patriot" carried over back to the comics: Rhodey now wears an Iron Patriot armor more like the one in the movie, while Ultimate Tony Stark took on the moniker in a new suit with a paint job similar to Norman Osborn's.
** In MC 2, this role is occupied by [[LegacyCharacter American]] [[DistaffCounterpart Dream]].
** Another Marvel example is Captain Britain, who stands for all values of England, and all his alternate counterparts do the same - the only {{Evil Twin}}s he has are from worlds where England is an evil empire. Such as Captain Airstrip-One, the ultimate government tool with nothing resembling a will of his own. He fights for the glory of [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Ingsoc]].
** And we cannot forget about TheFalcon, the biggest Captain Patriotic not dressed in the flag.
** Parodied in ''TwistedToyfareTheatre'': Captain America is a jingoistic Ugly American, sometimes even indulging in BlackComedyRape.
** And other people who were carrying the name of Captain America, like Patriot's grandfather, 1950s Cap or Bucky (who, in an inversion of CaptainGeographic, wore a costume that looked more like the flag of Puerto Rico).
*** Captain America's original costume, bearing only one star on the chest and back, looks more like the flag of Liberia than the Stars and Stripes. At least Puerto Rico is US territory!
*** It gets hilarious when you consider that, under this logic, Osborn's Iron Patriot armor looks more like the flag of ''Cuba'' (white star on red field + blue and white stripes).
*** [[ComicBook/AlphaFlight James MacDonald Hudson]] once pointed out in discussing [[CaptainGeographic his own costume]] that Cap's costume was meant to be a loose interpretation due to U.S. restrictions on flag-wearing, while his own costume as Weapon Alpha/Vindicator/Guardian was essentially the Canadian flag wrapped around him.
** And then there's Comicbook/BlackPanther, the king and national hero of the African nation of Wakanda.
** SilverSable is a European example, hailing from [[{{Ruritania}} Symkaria]]. Notably more TrueNeutral, with a dose of MyCountryRightOrWrong for good measure.
** DoctorDoom could be considered an inverted version of this trope for his nation of Latveria. Since he took over and modeled the country in his own image instead of the other way around. Ironically, in-universe, the people of Latveria -like- him and think of him as a good ruler as while he may be a tyrant, he honestly thinks of his country and people as his own and protects them/provides for them as such.
** Another villainous Captain Patriotic was the Tarantula, who was hyped as this trope but was mainly TheDragon to the murderous dictator who ruled his South American country.
** Marvel's version of Germany has Hauptmann Deutschland, which translates as "Captain Germany". Due to Germany's whole thing against referencing Nazism (how he references Nazis is anyone's guess), he has been variously renamed Freiheitskämpfer and Vormund.
** It seems like every major nation on Marvel Earth has at least one official CaptainPatriotic. The U.S. has CaptainAmerica. Britain has [[{{Comicbook/Excalibur}} Captain Britain.]] Canada has [[Comicbook/AlphaFlight Guardian.]] Russia has Vanguard. Japan has [[Comicbook/BigHero6 Sunfire.]] France has Adamantine. Germany has Hauptmann Deutschland. Ireland has Shamrock. Saudi Arabia has the Arabian Knight (both of them[[note]]though the current Arabian Knight is from Nazareth, a predominantly Muslim city in Israel[[/note]]). Israel has Sabra. Argentina has Defensor. China has Collective Man. Even make-believe countries have them. Wakanda has the Comicbook/BlackPanther. Symkaria has Silver Sable. And Latveria has... Character/DoctorDoom.
*** Speaking of Captain Britain, his Ultimate Universe counterpart portrays him as part of an EU-sponsored task force, rather than being empowered magically and being a living representation fo the UK. Among his teammates there's Captain France, Captain Italy and Captain Spain.
** According to Walt Simonson, this is why Steve Rogers cannot wield Thor's hammer Mjolnir. Though he's worthy of it in most respects, Steve's identity is too deeply rooted in America and its values -- he cannot be considered "worthy" by a Norse artifact. Mjolnir can only be wielded by a worthy warrior -- Steve is a ''soldier'' of the USA.
* ArchieComics character The Shield, created fourteen months before Captain America, brought back for a while by DCComics, and [[BadassGrandpa who is now]] [[TheObiWan the mentor]] to the ''Comicbook/NewCrusaders''.
* Canada has Captain Canuck.
* In ''{{Stormwatch}}: Team Achilles'' (the {{Wildstorm}} Universe, now integrated into the main DCU), Citizen Soldier is so much a super-patriot that he renounced death itself to protect America. In fact, he's George Washington (yes, ''that'' George Washington), constantly reincarnating thanks to a magic ritual designed by Franklin, Jefferson, and the other Freemason sorcerers.
* Nedor Comics had a few of those, like Liberator and American Eagle, but its best example was Fighting Yank, powered by the American Spirit itself and with the ghost of a World War I hero as TheMentor. Since Nedor's characters fell into the public domain, they've seen several revamped uses in recent years, including ''Terra Obscura'' and ''Project Superpowers''.
* Fighting American, who quickly turned into parody when Joe Simon and Creator/JackKirby realized he was not as popular as they expected. Even when Creator/RobLiefeld bought the rights to this character in order to turn him into a Captain America rip-off it didn't work.
* DCComics takes it [[UpToEleven up to 11]], having its equivalent of Captain America as [[Comicbook/FreedomFighters Uncle Sam]] - the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the American Spirit - himself.
** Other DC characters who embody this trope are Major Victory, Lady Liberty, the first Star-Spangled Kid, and Stargirl and Stripe.
** DC Comics also has ComicBook/UnknownSoldier; and Dynamite has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unknown_Soldier_(Ace_Comics) Soldier Unknown]] based on a different "Unknown Soldier" character.
** DC's Spirit of America went through a metamorphosis from Minuteman (Revolutionary War) to Brother Johnathan (antebellum period), then splitting into Billy Yank and Johnny Reb (the Civil War), then merging again and becoming Uncle Sam (post-Civil War to today). Well, okay, he was also briefly the Patriot circa 2002, but went back to Uncle Sam after only one or two appearances in that form.
** WonderWoman was this initially, but her character has developed significantly over time. In her first stories she was a foreigner dressed in a costume that Americans would interpret as "patriotic", apparently as conscious propaganda. These days, she's too integrated with Myth/ClassicalMythology to be a straight-up patriot (Superman being a better fit for this role, what with the whole "truth, justice and the American way" thing).
** American Eagle in ''[[Comicbook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew Captain Carrot And The Final Ark]]'' is a parody of the trope; a right-wing radio host who talks entirely in patriotic cliches. He has [[BadassNormal no powers]] "except those granted to me by the Constitution". Yankee Poodle has attraction and repulsion abilities based on the stars-and-stripes theme of the American flag.
** Don't forget {{Steel}}, who started off as an embodiment of this trope, but became a subversion when his grandson [[LegacyCharacter took up the mantle]] as a member of the [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]. The original Steel was now shown to be an ultra-conservative and a bit of a bigot, and [[{{Deconstruction}} his patriotism was played as a negative character trait]].
** Miss Liberty from ''ComicBook/{{Tomahawk}}'', who was patriotic heroine of the Revoutionary war.
** The (now defunct) Global Guardians were essentially a whole ''team'' of [[CaptainPatriotic Captain Patriotics]] from around the world.
** And as a twisted example, Stalnoivolk ("Steel Wolf", or perhaps "Stalin's Wolf"). Fiercely loyal to the USSR--but that's the USSR of ''JosefStalin'', who created him. He'll work for later Soviet leaders, but he considers them, at best, to be poor and unworthy implementers of Stalin's glorious vision.
* Image Comics has Super Patriot, who was in his heyday a direct CaptainErsatz version of Captain America. His kids with the superhero clone names Liberty & Justice also qualify.
* In ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'', the government tries to portray The Comedian as one of these, but he's [[{{Deconstruction}} very obviously not]] [[VillainProtagonist a hero]] of this type.
** A milder {{Deconstruction}} also in Watchmen is Dollar Bill: he has the most overtly patriotic costume of any character in the book, and he's also the only character who's a corporate mascot.
* The Flag from Ace Publications, who was informed he was America's ChosenOne by UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington and UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln.
* [[http://www.comicbookdb.com/character.php?ID=18837 Man of War]]
* Minuteman from ''FreedomForce''.
* In ''ComicBook/RisingStars'', corporate superhero [[CaptainGeographic Flagg]] (who later changes his name to Patriot), is working on his reputation as one. However, the real Captain Patriotic in this universe is officer Matthew Bright. Bright wanted to serve America and its people so much he joined the police force. He has to hide his powers, because Specials cannot be members of any force. And when the government found out and was trying to kick him out, his fellow police officers protested so much, they had to give up and try to use a LegalLoophole to forbid him from wearing a police uniform and badge, thus making it impossible for him to work. They underestimated his friends from the Police Department, who just brought an uniform and badge designed only for him.
* ''ComicBook/PS238'' had several examples. They have a Captain America clone, Freedom Fighter, hanging around, but he's not immortal, and is nearing retirement. Both the Republicans and the Democrats are grooming their own 'Replacement' flag-waver: US Patriot Act and American Eagle. Their constant attempts at out-patriot each other are obnoxious, the constant quarreling prevents them from accomplishing much of anything, and instead they cause trouble for anyone hanging around. [[SarcasmMode Political commentary? Where?]]
* Franchise/{{Superman}}. "Truth, justice and the American way." Superman, being an alien, adopted the USA as his country.
** Spoofed in the SaturdayNightLive sketch "[[http://snltranscripts.jt.org/78/78jwhatif.phtml What If?]]". With the statement, "What if Superman had grown up in Germany instead of America?". Superman becomes Uberman.
*** Done deadly serious in Creator/KimNewman's "Ubermensch!".
** And then there's ''SupermanRedSon'', an {{Elseworld}} where Superman's adopted country is the USSR.
** And ''Superman: True Brit'', in which he is raised by an incredibly bland and none too bright British family; he's still a defender of Truth, Justice, and the British Way, but is kind of a nitwit.
** Overman of [[TheMultiverse Earth-10]] is an aversion - a Superman adopted by Nazi Germany in a world where the Nazis went on to win World War Two, who has abiding guilt over their atrocities.
*** A different Overman (a native of the DarkerAndEdgier Earth-17) wore an American flag cape.
** Earth-23 has a black Superman who, in his secret identity, became US President. Naturally enough, solicits and fans call him President Superman.
** In ComicBook/JLAAvengers Superman had to carry Cap's shield at some point. He felt honored.
* Socialist Red Guardsman of China's ''Great Ten''. While August General in Iron and Immortal Man in Darkness are also true patriots, Socialist Red Guardsman is the only member of the team to actually have ''Das Kapital'' and ''The Little Red Book'' committed to memory. Socialist Red Guardsman believes he ''is'' the revolution, and has frequently broken his back to ensure that his teammates toe the party line with his endless rants and lectures. He even attempted to quit the team in disgust at his country's growing commercialism.
* ''ComicBook/TomorrowStories'' features the parodic First American and his sidekick U.S.Angel as it is, but one issue sees FA consulting with other national heroes - Captain Uzbekistan, Le Premier Francais, Deutschlander Zahlein, and the Fightin' Limey ("who sleeps in my garage").
* Parodied with [[ComicBook/{{Superlopez}} Capitán Hispania]], who carries a shield with the colours of the Spanish flag, but never says anything that can be considered patriotic.
* American Eagle is a C-List Marvel hero who combines this trope with AnimalThemedSuperbeing and MagicalNativeAmerican.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superdupont Superdupont]], by Jacques Lob and Creator/{{Gotlib}}, is a French parody of the concept.
* [[http://www.republ33k.fr/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/ritter-fur-germania.jpg Ritter Germania]] from the ''{{Block 109}}'' series, a InUniverse [[PropagandaMachine nazi propaganda]] hero, with InUniverse movies and comics to boot.
* Tarn from ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye is wholly devoted to the Decepticon cause, fully believing in Megatron's Peace through Tyranny (He named his ship the Peaceful Tyranny). So great is his devotion, he crafted several masks resembling the Decepticon symbol, wears them constantly, and he changed his name to Tarn, which was Megatron's home city.
** In addition several ships, Worldsweepers, are in the shape of Giant Decepticon symbols, flown by the most powerful or loyal, and they're so big, even from space, one sees them and knows, this is a Decepticon controlled planet.
* Miss (later Ms.) Victory of ''ComicBook/{{Femforce}}''.
* {{Deconstruct|ion}}ed by Reuben Flagg in ''ComicBook/AmericanFlagg''; while the Plexus Ranger uniforms look patriotic, the Plex itself and the Rangers as a corps are as corrupt as could be imagined. Reuben is often shown as the ''only'' one who takes his work and his patriotic stance seriously (if somewhat pragmatically), and is constantly derided for it. In the end, he stages a revolution to get Chicago and other surviving parts of the former US out from under the Plex's thumb.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* Michael A. Stackpole's superhero short story ''Peer Review'' has one, Colonel Constitution, who's got his own shield and whose real name is [[PunnyName Bill Wright]]. Unfortunately for the characters he's an Expy of, ''his'' character is of the 'overzealous, letter of the law chomping at the bit soldier' type.
* The Commander in ''Literature/ThePosterChildren'' is ''portrayed'' as this to the public, more or less. He's said to be America's favorite hero by June. As is later deconstructed, he does answer to the BPHA, which unfortunately leads to [[spoiler:the imprisonment of his wife.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action Film ]]

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' downplays his PatrioticFervor and emphasizes him being TheCape ("I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from.") That's not to say he doesn't love his country, though.
-->'''RedSkull''': I have seen the future, Captain! There are no flags!\\
'''Steve Rogers''': Not in my future!
** Prior to becoming a hero, he plays a hokey parody of this concept while touring with the USO.
* In ''Film/IronMan3'', the Iron Patriot is simply ComicBook/WarMachine repainted in star-spangled colors as a means to boost the nation's morale in response to the terrorist threat posed by [[BigBad The Mandarin]]. Since Rhodey is as patriotic as Steve, he still plays the role straight.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: MMORPGs ]]

* Statesman, Hero1 and Hero 1 from ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''.
** Miss Liberty and Ms. Liberty (the daughter and granddaughter of Statesman) would also count.
** The robust character creator also allows many players to make their own Captain Patriotic.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Professional Wrestling ]]

* While wrestling has plenty of {{All American Face}}s, only one man can cross the line into a full-blown Captain Patriotic -- The Patriot.
** Wrestling/KurtAngle could be seen as a {{Subversion}} of this, especially at the beginning of his career. He even adopted The Patriot's old music, which is now known as the "You Suck" theme.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* The SuperSentai series ''Series/BattleFeverJ'' had a whole ''team'' of these themed around dance and sport.
** TheHero - Battle Japan
** TheLancer - Battle Cossack (Soviet Union)
** TheBigGuy - Battle Kenya
** TheSmartGuy - Battle France
** TheChick - Miss America
* Captain Freedom on ''Series/HillStreetBlues''
* In ''Series/WeirdScience'', Chett becomes invincible for a short period of time and becomes The Star-Spangled Butt-Kicker.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]

* Lady Liberty and the Patriot in ''FreedomCity'' setting for ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds''.
* Steel Commando in the ''HaltEvilDoer'' setting for the same.
* Kapten Sverige (Captain Sweden) in the Swedish superhero RPG ''Supergänget'' (''Supercrew'' in the English translation).
* [[IronKingdoms Cygnar's]] Commander Coleman Stryker is described in-universe as such : "Coleman in a word ? Patriot."
* ''TabletopGame/AdeptusEvangelion'' has an attribute called "Flagship" for your giant cyborg of choice. Your Evangelion was built and/or funded by a country and is a source of national pride.
* Legacy in ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse'' is a fusion of Captain America and Superman. His entire family, from the Revolutionary War onward, have used their genetic superhuman powers to protect America and the rest of the world from various villainous threats. Their ChestInsignia is a little unique, not being the stars and stripes or any combination thereof -- it's a stylized lantern, as in "One if by land, two if by sea," because the first Legacy's SpiderSense was what alerted the colonies to the British arrival.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* FreedomForce - Minuteman and Liberty Lad are basically CaptainAmerica, but different enough to not pay copyright fees.
** "I don't know what will come from all of this, but I must use these new powers to help my country fight her enemies - within and without. Those reds might have killed Frank Stiles, but they're about to meet... The Minuteman!"
** He also happens to be a GeniusBruiser, having been a nuclear physicist working on the Manhatten Project.
** For one of those rare patriotic superheroes who are not from English speaking countries, [[MeaningfulName Tricolour]] from Freedom Force vs The Third Reich. As her name indicates, she is French (the French flag is often referred as "Les Trois Couleurs" (The Three Colours). She broke out of a BrainwashedAndCrazy state hearing a member of the [[LaResistance French resistance]] about to be executed after she was forced to capture him sing the French National Anthem (La Marseillaise), triggering her IntrinsicVow and prompting her to dispatch the Wehrmacht troopers about to shoot.
* Guile of StreetFighter, so much so that as part of the [[MemeticMutation Guile Theme Goes With Everything]] a significant portion of the comments will relate the action in the video to [[MemeticMutation FOR AMERICA!]] (or [[MemeticMutation being a family man]]).
* The Liberty Prime robot in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' is a perfect blend of Captain Patriotic and [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]]. It wasn't enough to create a HumongousMecha that could [[BeamSpam shoot lasers]] and [[SlapOnTheWristNuke throw nuclear bomb footballs]] everywhere, he also spouts jingoistic [[PatrioticFervor pro-American phrases]] while attacking.
-->Liberty Prime: ''DEMOCRACY IS NON-NEGOTIABLE. INITIATING DIRECTIVE 7395: [[DirtyCommunists DESTROY ALL COMMUNISTS]].''
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Original ]]

* Captain Patriot, of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. He leads a super-team in Cincinnati.
** Cerebrex dearly ''wants'' to be 'Captain Canada'...and can't, because he's only a student yet and using a rank he doesn't actually hold would be against school rules.
* In the ''LeagueOfIntergalacticCosmicChampions'' The Great Emancipator.
* In the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', there's Captain Texas, Ultra-Man, the Citizen, Doc Liberty, Independence, Uncle Sam, and every single member of the Arsenal of Democracy.
** Interestingly enough, the otherwise appropriately-named hero known as "The Patriot" is not a Captain Patriotic, as he is themed after the New England Patriots football team, and not on patriotism. Despite the correct color scheme, he's definitely Captain Sporting-Goods, not Captain Patriotic.
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' provides Miss Militia, whose ImmigrantPatriotism leads her to lobby (successfully) for the right to include an [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead American flag scarf]] in her costume.
* Liberty is an {{Expy}} of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica from the WebSerialNovel ''Literature/{{Curveball}}'', so this is pretty much expected.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'' has American Maid, and the LiveActionAdaptation has Captain Liberty.
* Major Glory from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' is a spoof of this. He even hawks a snack named "[[DeliciousFruitPies Justice Fruit Pies]]," and periodically recites lyrics or lines from famous American works (such as the national anthem, the Constitution, and the Pledge of Allegiance). However, the jabs are entirely [[AffectionateParody affectionate]].
* In the ''Mr. Incredible and Pals'' spoof on the ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' [=DVD=], Mr. Incredible is portrayed as one of these.
* ''TheAdventuresOfTheAmericanRabbit'' features a Captain Patriotic who's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin also a rabbit.]]
* Blossom of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' once reinvented herself as Liberty Belle in the episode "Super Zeroes", complete with a "[[CoolCar Freedom Mobile]]" and a "Lariat of Guilt". Inspired by her favorite superhero, Freedom Gal, also a Captain Partriotic and a Wonder Woman parody.
-->'''Blossom/Liberty Belle:''' [[InTheNameOfTheMoon Evildoers beware, for when the Liberty Belle tolls, it tolls for thee!]]
* With so many examples Marvel has under their belt (see the Comic Books section above), you bet ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow'' would parody this. In the episode "O Captain, My Captain!", Wolverine decides to leave the team and takes on the mantle of "Captain Canada" (whose uniform is a cross of his and Guardian's) to join the All-Captains Squad, whose members include Captain Britain, plus {{Original Generation}}s Captain Australia, Captain Brazil (a heroine) and even Captain Liechtenstein (tiny, but prosperous!).
* On ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Varrick creates propaganda films in order to compel Republic City to go to war with the Northern Water Tribe. These "movers" star Nuktuk, an overly buff Water Tribe member who fits this trope.
