* Connie (George Webster Confucius), the Chinese comic relief character from the ''ComicStrip/TerryAndThePirates'' comic strip is a bucktoothed, squinty-eyed, yellow skinned charictature who speaks in pidgin English. Particularly annoying, as Caniff persisted in this portrayal even as his art evolved and the other Chinese characters became more realistic.

* ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'''s crows, whom the protagonist meets after his infamous BigLippedAlligatorMoment nightmare. Though [[SpaceJews stereotypically "black"]] and led by a [[UnfortunateImplications crow named Jim]], [[FairForItsDay they're glad to take a fellow outcast]] [[{{Pun}} under their wing]] [[FairForItsDay and help him to get back at his oppressors]]. With the exception of Cliff Edwards, the voice actors were also black singers, the Hall Johnson Choir. All of them did a fantastic job on their song.
* ''{{Disney/Fantasia}}'' has the infamous centaur Sunflower, a very uncomfortable black caricature, who has oversized lips, a body designed off a donkey, and acts as a servant to the other female centaurs (who are all white and beautiful, with the bodies of beautiful horses). She is removed from prints of the movie made after the 1960s, and Disney does their best to pretend she doesn't exist. Ironically enough she has a strange popularity in fan art, [[FixFic where she is drawn less stereotypically and depicted as unsubmissive]].
* ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' has the infamous Siamese Cat duo. On top of being, of course, villains, their Ethnic Scrappy status manifests itself in their buck teeth and the annoyingly terrible grammar during their song.
* ''Disney/PeterPan'''s depiction of Native Americans is another OldShame for Disney. Their song "What Made the Red Man Red?" basically attributes their skin colour to a white boy blushing after getting kissed by a girl he liked. In addition to that, they have a mishmash of different tribes' cultures, and most are drawn cartoonishly compared to the white characters. Only Tiger Lily seems to be drawn differently (and unsurprisingly she's more popular). The Indians notably don't appear in ''Disney/ReturnToNeverland'', and the DVD does not give the option to skip to "What Made the Red Man Red?"
* Another stereotypical Siamese cat from a Creator/{{Disney}} feature: Shun Gon, the Chinese member of Scat Cat's gang from ''Disney/TheAristocats''. He's not a villain, but he has the buck teeth and the exaggerated accent. People rarely comment on the fact that the other cats in Scat Cat's gang are also strong ethnic stereotypes (though this is probably because Shun is a non-white ethnic caricature voiced by a white voice actor-- Creator/PaulWinchell).

* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': Black people are usually portrayed as relatively sane, civilized and well articulate. However, they are drawn like in a 1930's cartoon. Chinese people are a different matter--they are drawn ''and'' act like in 1930's cartoons! Even Chinese space program engineers are portrayed as buckteethed gnomes who talk in AsianSpeakeeEngrish (and eat "flied lice").

* Many Koreans didn't respond well to the AnthropomorphicPersonification of their country in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia''.

* Intentionally invoked by Chin-Kee in ''ComicBook/AmericanBornChinese'', a walking caricature of every negative Asian stereotype ever. ItMakesSenseInContext as [[spoiler:he turns out to be the Monkey King, who deliberately put on this act to convince Jin Wang, who transformed himself into a white boy named Danny, to re embrace his heritage. Also to torment him a bit for having thrown it all away to fit in, as the sheer embarrassment he brings every time he visits utterly destroys any cred his new identity could have gained from being white]].
* In ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'', the way Uderzo draws black characters (the most notable one being the crows' nest pirate) and the occasional Chinese background character is very upsetting, but they're usually written relatively unstereotypically and so fail to qualify for this trope. (It should be noted that in the original French editions of the comic, the aforementioned crows' nest pirate spoke in a broken EyeDialect that was, for obvious reasons, dropped from English translations, and later from the French version as well.) The only -- and how! -- true Ethnic Scrappy in the series is the [[SignificantAnagram Nagma]] in ''Asterix and the Falling Sky'', which was written in 2005. He is an alien who is supposed to represent the influence of manga on FrancoBelgianComics -- unfortunately, he's also drawn like a yellowface caricature, the other characters all hate him on sight before he's even done anything bad, and he speaks in stilted YouNoTakeCandle speech which is supposed to represent Engrish. A big noise is made about how all his technology was copied from the American FantasyCounterpartCulture, and Obelix, who is usually unmalicious and shown not to care about gender roles, angrily declares he hates him for being unmanly (and the audience is meant to be on his side). Uderzo had to make a public apology [[JumpTheShark for how poor the story was]], in which it became apparent that his loathing of manga -- and by extension the Japanese -- was based on CriticalResearchFailure. At this point, Uderzo was a very old man, his brother had recently died, and he was losing his drawing ability, and the drop in writing and art quality is so enormous that it has all the hallmarks of CreatorBreakdown.
* Chop-Chop from ''ComicBook/{{Blackhawk}}''. All the Caucasian characters are tall and good-looking. The Chinese is three feet tall, as wide as he is high with lemon-yellow skin, huge chimpanzee-like ears, teeth like a radiator grille, tiny, slitted eyes and a silly accent. They all wore uniforms and caps, he wears a multi-coloured Qing dynasty outfit and a ribbon in his pigtail. However, the later issues, as early as UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, made him look like a normal Chinese guy, took away his stupid accent, and gave him a uniform.\\\
Creator/HowardChaykin's 1988 [[{{Deconstruction}} reworking]] of ''Blackhawk'', which even gave him a real name, showed him to be insulted and angered by his team-mates' use of the derogatory nick-name. In fact, the miniseries doesn't shy away from depicting any of the racism and sexism of the World War II era. More modern ''ComicBook/{{Hawkman}}'' issues (nineties) show the character as a successful businessman. His "past" was retconned to be a couple of pointless jokes and he was always a valued member of the team. Of course, [[ContinuitySnarl since this was a Hawkman comic]], the continuity of such is in doubt.
* Steamboat in early ''[[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]'' comics, who was such a dreadful caricature of a black character that readers in the '''1940s''' successfully campaigned to get him removed. Bizarrely, the character was supposedly created to attract black readers.
* UsefulNotes/{{The Silver Age|of Comic Books}} ComicBook/GreenLantern Hal Jordan had an Inuit sidekick called Pieface who served as his mechanic. Today, he is strictly called Tom Kalmaku and depicted with respect as an engineer. In a retelling of Hal's origin, the "Pieface" nickname is used by a {{Jerkass}} rival pilot. Tom gets his in ''ComicBook/DCTheNewFrontier'', Darwyn Cooke's (there he is again!) reimagining of the dawn of DC's [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]]. Hal Jordan calls him Pieface when they first meet. Tom responds by calling Hal "whitebread" and threatening him with a wrench, and that's the last time Hal uses that nickname. While the nickname was very unfortunate, as such things go, [[FairForItsDay Tom was really treated pretty decently in the old Gardner Fox Silver Age GL comics]]. He looked like a real Inuit man and not some weird caricature, avoided a YouNoTakeCandle-style weird accent, and he was clearly a good and intelligent man whom Hal respected. He also deserves credit for being a favorable portrayal of a minority most readers at that time would only be vaguely familiar with.

* Vibe (an early Latino superhero) from the Detroit-era ''[[ComicBook/JusticeLeague JLA]]'' was so bad that artist Creator/GeorgePerez claims it turned him off of the entire franchise. Ironically enough, he was created as an attempt to try and make the JLA seem more modern and progressive. In the ComicBook/{{New 52}} however, DC has been trying really hard to [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap Rescue Him From The Scrappy Heap]] by removing the more offensive aspects of his backstory (he's no longer a former "gangsta") and personality.

Even Chinese space program engineers are portrayed as buckteethed gnomes who talk (and eat) [[YouNoTakeCandle flied lice]]!
** Black people tend to come in two varieties. Regularly-sized, relatively slender fellows who are particularly civilized. And big, muscular men who are easy to anger. An album taking place in New York City included both varieties. Attempts of Filemón and Mortadelo to investigate Harlem and locate a suspected terrorist, constantly end with them beaten by various locals who seem to have white guys as a [[BerserkButton target for their wrath]]. When the two agents finally get their suspect, he turns out to be a leader of the community. Their information about a bomb was wrong. His "bomb" was evidence about political corruption and how money supposedly going into urban development, ended up in the wrong hands.
** This is mostly due of a case of ValuesDissonance. Albeit still present, racism is not nearly as big in Spain as in other countries, so this portrayals are seen mostly as PlayedForLaughs, with no ulterior motives nor messages, conscious or otherwise.
** There are some light puns on black characters, always PlayedForLaughs:

*** In an old short story, Mortadelo and Filemón are asked to scort a young African prince back to his country, after he has finished his studies in Spain.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Promethea}}'', the in-comic comic strip [[ShowWithinAShow Little Margie in Misty Magic Land]], a {{Homage}} to ''ComicStrip/LittleNemo'', has a lampshaded example of this in "Chinky the Chinese Imp" (an allusion to the Imp in ''Little Nemo'').

Yes, he got better lines and a more serious role as the story went on, but to have a comedy black character half the white guy's height with big, red, rubber lips and huge, wide staring eyes was not the finest idea in Creator/WillEisner's great career as a cartoonist. Eisner discusses this problem, and his reaction to it, in the introduction to ''Fagin the Jew'', the comic he made to vindicate the character of Fagin in ''Oliver Twist''. The 2007 Darwyn Cooke version makes him into a street-smart kid, with the added precaution of excising JiveTurkey. Spirit employs him as his driver since both of them are officially "outside the law," and because of Ebony's excellent survival instincts.

Now days, he's an OldShame for all involved.
* Creator/GrantMorrison during his tenure writing ComicBook/XMen created Angel Salvadore, as some sort of vaguely Latina, foul-mouthed 14 year-old who was kicked out of her house by her step-father when her mutant powers developed. Some UnfortunateImplications come into play when Angel later is impregnated (by Beak, the Chicken-man during a field trip with Xorneto) and suddenly lays ''half-a-dozen mutant children' in large eggs. Though {{Justified}} by the fact that her mutant powers make her very fly-like, and her name is doubly ironic because of how unpleasant she can be and X-Men already have the more experienced Archangel.

Some UnfortunateImplications come into play when Angel later is impregnated (by Beak, Beak the Chicken-man chicken-man, during a field trip with Xorneto) and suddenly lays ''half-a-dozen mutant children' in large eggs. Though {{Justified}} by the fact that her mutant powers make her very fly-like, and her name is doubly ironic because of how unpleasant she can be and the X-Men already have the more experienced Archangel.

Seanbaby called him [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-5-gayest-fattest-most-racist-most-useless-sidekicks-of-all-time/ racist on a level we simply cannot recreate with today's technology]].
** Marvel handled this pretty well with their Retcon of the series. The Young Allies comic series exist also as an In-Universe comic book. Very Unoffical and none of the Young Allies are happy about it. Washington Jones, who Whitewash is 'based' on, served with distinction in the United States Air Force after World War 2, retiring as a Colonel.

* The Svenjaya in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone'' seem to be an example of Alien Scrappies, since they're subservient to humans, always calling them “boss,” and speak in broken English. However, we find out later that due to a “Great Mistake” some thirty years ago, the Svenjaya agreed to a forty-year period of penance for the entire tribe, and stereotypes about the race were written into the penance contract, requiring them to all behave that way while they served the humans they had wronged—which was better than having the tribe decimated in revenge. Significantly, [[ThePatriarch Slavayat]], who was away at school when the contract was written, is perfectly articulate, with just a few notes in his speech to remind you that he isn't human; and Mevaryat, the great musician, sounds exactly like a human (which is a source of mild annoyance to Slavayat).

* Wrestling/{{Rikishi}} being a Samoan who spoke plain English and acted pretty normal was in WWE before Umaga or the fact Samoa IS part of the USA. Most people don't acknowledge Samoa Joe started out in UPW, a former WWE development league and current talent scout for the company.
* Even if in some people's eyes Wrestling/YoshihiroTajiri fits the "ethnic stereotype" it was justified in that he came straight from Japan and spoke little English for a long time. Tajiri can just as easily get the fans on his side as he is regarded by most to be an exceptional wrestler-- not someone to compare to Mr. Fuji. Many also consider Umaga a good wrestler as he can pull off impressive maneuvers for his size.
* WWE isn't the only place to use ethnic scrappies either. TNA's American hating Sheik comes to mind, [[Administrivia/TropesAreTools but in wrestling it's to be expected]], as many wrestlers make their whole careers off of being hated.
* There are a few inversions of this too such as Olympic Gold Medalist Wrestling/KurtAngle and [[Wrestling/JackSwagger "The All American American" Jack Swagger]].
* Wrestling/SashaBanks nearly fell into this. A leaked video from a promo class saw her playing a snobby heel with a stereotypical ghetto accent. However when she did turn heel, the character instead was a BetaBitch to Summer Rae without the accent.
* Wrestling/BeckyLynch hit this trope hard when she debuted on NXT in 2014 - with dyed red hair, green and gold ring gear, Ceili-themed entrance music and even doing a jig in the ring. Essentially playing up every {{Oireland}} stereotype there was. Due to the backlash, these tropes were phased out until she became a mosh pit girl. Years later she revealed she was on the verge of being let go, so the character was a last ditch attempt to get her on TV.
* Eddie and Chavo Guerrero teetered on the edge with their Los Guerreros gimmick in 2002-2004. While indulging in the "lie, cheat and steal" gimmick was a little unflattering towards Mexican-Americans - they were very over fan favourites and had the talent in the ring to back it up. It's worth noting that their heel runs avoided any Latino stereotyping.

* Guts from ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon'' has some of the worst wingman dialogue this side of [[VideoGame/StarFox Slippy Toad]]. Many a player cheered when he [[spoiler:gets shot down]], then groaned when [[spoiler:it's revealed that he may have survived]]. For what it's worth, Guts, despite being a clear Latin-American, doesn't do anything racially stereotypical (doesn't even switch on and off to Spanish). Sure he's annoying, but the the only thing he does that's even remotely stereotypical is drink excessively; even then, his preferred drink is, amusingly enough, ''vodka''. That said, his dialogue is awful.
* ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad'' Somehow subverted this trope: Chongara looks like the worst caricature of a greedy Arabic merchant, and the English translation has him speaking YouNoTakeCandle. He is also the guy who can [[GameBreaker summon]] [[LittleMissBadass Choko]] to the battlefield, and during the second game, we see that he has become [[ChessMaster the brain]] behind the [[GuileHero good guys]] operation. The [[FunnyAneurysmMoment funny thing]] is that, since the translated version came out after 9/11, western players could not see the character without thinking about UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden (Chongara is an arabic looking guy with a beard who left a wealthy background to follow religiously motivated internationally wanted terrorists)... A scarily competent expy of Bin Laden who managed to make [[TheEmpire the world's only uncontested superpower]] bite the dust after a few years of carefully planed terrorists attacks. At least the real Bin Laden didn't have [[BadassCrew two dozen]] [[MagicKnight magic wielding]] [[OneManArmy overpowered warriors]] and summoned monsters. Or if he did, he never told anyone.
** Chongara also became the captain of the airship Silver Noah to further underline his competence and usefulness. Mind you that airship took part in an aerial terrorist attack on a city that's a direct analog of New York... and blew up a major landmark.

* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' has many respectable Asian characters, including most of the [[HospitalHottie terribly attractive]] male doctors. Won from ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature Friends of Mineral Town]]'' is not one of them. With his stereotypical attire, 'Fu Manchu' style mustache, and cheap personality fans loathe the guy. To make matters worse he is one of the "secret bachelors" in the DistaffCounterpart, who isn't very affectionate and is very hard to marry. He's one of the most disliked bachelors in the franchise by far.
* Rico of ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}}'', who is Hispanic, foul-mouthed, and hot headed. He's one of the most hated characters, not to mention the fact that he guarantees the defeat of the ISA in ''Killzone 2'' by killing Visari.
* Li Xiangfei from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. While her first appearance in ''Real Bout 2'' did not prove to be worthwhile, her inclusion in ''KOF '99'' and ''2001'' were glaring in that SNK placed her on the Women Fighters Team, and the team's endings in both games involved her eating expensive food - so expensive, in fact, that her teammates can't cover it![[labelnote:*]]In ''[='=]99'', they are forced to do the dishes to cover the expenses, and ''2001'' is even worse: even after Hinako promises to foot the bill, she still runs off and slaps it on Mai and King with the excuse that she has sumo training![[/labelnote]] When SNK needed to place her on ''KOF 2002: Unlimited Match'', they placed her on the 'Pretty Girls Team', a B-Level [[JokeCharacter joke version]] of the KOF Women's Team idea along with May Lee (who was originally in the Korea Team, but was put in King's place in the Women Fighters Team in the original version of ''2002'') and Hinako Shijo. She still has a bit of a hatred by some fan bases. By the way, she is Chinese-American, which is a rarity in a fighting game, whose characters are usually defined by their nationality.

Complete with a black face with thick, pink lips[[note]]the US version changed it to dark blue and yellow lips--which still doesn't help that much[[/note]], dancing reminiscent of black minstrels, and obnoxious engrishy [[GratuitousEnglish "Yo, yo, yo!" before each sentence,]] [[note]]Again, the English translation blunted this stereotype, replacing it instead with a streetwise, urban way of speaking[[/note]] Oil Man brings an unwelcome dose of this trope to the series. [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] in [[ComicBook/MegaMan the comic series]], where Oil Man uses his Japanese color scheme but with his lips permanently covered by a scarf.
* Nightwolf from ''Franchise/MortalKombat''. The movies in particular make him one of the most ridiculous BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins stereotypes in recent memory. The cartoon, however, turns him into a GeniusBruiser with computer hacking skills who is also the only one who is immune to a virus. [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap He did get better, though]].
** In ''Deadly Alliance'' we got Hsu Hao, who happens to be a living mongolian stereotype (complete with UnfortunateImplications) and is considered as the most hated character in the entire franchise. Even the creators hate him.
* A rare example of a white one of this trope is Tony from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', a {{Gonk}} drawn with massive drooping eyelids, huge oval eyes that point in different directions, splayed eyelashes, a face-devouring, lumpen nose, a prominent chin, very high eyebrows, and stringy yellow hair, and speaks in stereotypically broken Japanese. He is also apparently a creeper who takes filthy photographs of unknowing Japanese women. It's worth pointing out the ugly Japanese characters, like Gin, are not drawn anywhere near as distorted as Tony, and Tony's ugly features are exaggerations of white facial features, making him this trope.
* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' has three characters who are so heavily defined by this trope that their ethnicity is also their name: Irish, Welsh, and French. There is a character named Dutch late in the game, but he does not display any of that ethnicity's stereotypes. For his part, French lacks an accent, and while he is a bit of a jerk, he doesn't really display any French stereotypes.
* After the huge success of Sony's "It Only Does Everything" marketing campaign spearheaded by Advertising/KevinButler, Sony decided to try to replicate the same success for their PSP line of products. Sony introduced Marcus, an African American adolescent who blatantly plays heavily on the "black" stereotype, is not funny at all, and comes off as plain annoying. Needless to say, the fan reception to Marcus has been far less positive than Kevin Butler.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', despite being a show about a modernized Stone Age, somehow saw fit to introduce the Great Gazoo, a generic little green alien that would probably seem a lot more at home in ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons''. Or rather, generic except for the fact that his personality was modeled after every offensive stereotype of the British, taken UpToEleven. Gazoo was smug, elitist, seemed to think he could get away with making fun of longtime protagonists Fred and Barney and using his powers to make them his {{Butt Monkey}}s just because he was a more articulate speaker, and on top of all of this JerkAss behavior, there were the UnfortunateImplications of England being personified by an advanced alien while America was personified as cave people.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', despite being a show about a modernized Stone Age, somehow saw fit to introduce the Great Gazoo, a generic little green alien that would probably seem a lot more at home in ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons''. Or rather, generic except for the fact that his personality was is modeled after every offensive stereotype of the British, taken UpToEleven. Gazoo was is smug, elitist, seemed seems to think he could can get away with making fun of longtime protagonists Fred and Barney and using his powers to make them his {{Butt Monkey}}s just because he was he's a more articulate speaker, and on top of all of this JerkAss behavior, there were are the UnfortunateImplications of England being personified by an advanced alien while America was is personified as cave people.cavepeople. So what you have is an ethnic scrappy who offends two countries at once!
* Eurotrish from ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends''. Her horribly fake accent, her annoying voice, and her constant "Because I'MMA GOING to Eur-OPE!" song made her immensely hated by the fans. It also doesn't help that her name is a pun on the word "Eurotrash". This even occurs InUniverse during the credits sequence of her episode!



* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'': Carl's Swedish pen pal, Elke Ekeberg. Like above, she has a horribly fake accent, speaks in broken English and she's a complete ditz who lets Carl abuse Jimmy and completely ignores the fact he almost got her killed. Thank God she never appeared again.

** The original series is grindingly embarrassing at times due to this. Supposedly, the Zulus throwing spears at the Quest Jet in the closing credits were from an episode that never aired, but that image is crazy enough. The worst that DID air was "The Sea Haunt", where the team were stranded on a ship when the MonsterOfTheWeek smashed their plane. They find the only survivor of the ship's crew -- a Chinese cook named Charlie who has a horrible accent, dresses stereotypically (how did they miss giving him a pigtail?), and continually references his "honorable ancestors".[[FairForItsDay To be fair,]] Charlie at least gets a big part in helping stop the [[MonsterOfTheWeek monster]]. They are eventually spotted by DUTCH search parties from Batavia-- despite Jakarta (and Indonesia) having been independent for years already. Oy...
** Hadji. In ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'', the first season's writers actually worked to avert this trope with Hadji, only for him to fall back into it in the second season with the reintroduction of the SimSimSalabim elements of his character. However, he first season's success at aversion is still debatable, considering they ended up turning him into a BollywoodNerd computer expert (although that hadn't yet become a stereotype at the time the show was airing).

** More borderline is Speedy's cousin, Slowpoke Rodriguez, "the ''slowest'' mouse in all of Mexico". Being slothful even by the standards of the other Mexican mice, he protects himself with either a concealed gun or mind control. Like his cousin, though, he's smart and heroic, and both characters remain extremely popular in Latin America. In 1999, Creator/CartoonNetwork shelved the cartoons for the aforementioned stereotypes, until MediaWatchdog group the League of United Latin American Citizens lobbied to bring them back. That's right, media watchdogs worked to [[OppositeDay unban]] something controversial.
** UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan gave Looney Tunes more than its share of ethnic scrappies during World War II.
** Then there is the classic ethnic scrappy of the series, Pepe Le Pew. Even ignoring the ''many'' UnfortunateImplications of what he is -- making a skunk character French seems pretty reminiscent of the stereotype that the French ignore hygiene, and his personality recalls the other stereotype that they're chauvinists -- his whole horny schtick is offensive on its own to many people. However, those that aren't offended generally see him as a EnsembleDarkHorse, so he is more of a BaseBreakingCharacter. (It sort of helps the pro-Pepe case that he's [[{{Fauxreigner}} not actually a Frenchman]].) In an ironic twist, he has never been the target of any kind of controversy in France since [[KeepItForeign his French accent has been replaced by an Italian one]] (French are mostly unaware of their "womanizer" reputation, but are well aware of the LatinLover one) despite the fact that he mostly appears in France locations in the show.
* The cartoon ''WesternAnimation/MrMagoo'' had Charlie, a Chinese character who was servant of some form to Magoo. Charlie had buck teeth and a thick accent that resulted in calling his employer "Mr. Magloo" or "Bloss." He was able to see and therefore aware of all Magoo's errors, but his subservient position made him unable to call Magoo out on them, even when they got him put in harm's way.
* Mr. Rude from ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'' certainly applies. A walking French stereotype (though he's given a different accent in the French dub of the show, naturally), his entire persona is to simply walk around being [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a rude]] {{Jerkass}} towards everyone else. To make matters worse, he's also a major {{Gasshole}}, making him a cartoonish "Smelly French" stereotype.
* Lupe the toucan in ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' was a Latina caricature who was loud, easily angered, and sounded like Creator/SofiaVergara combined with Creator/FranDrescher, smoking three packs a day.
* ''The ComicBook/PlasticMan Comedy/Adventure Show'' had "bumbling Hawaiian sidekick" Hula-Hula. Like Native American characters, Polynesians are often thought of as walking CostumePorn rather than "real" races of people, which he definitely fell into.
* Apu Nahasapeemapetilon of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' fame has some in a rampage over his depiction of Indian-Americans; and the show's handling of the criticism, who see him as the embodiment and sire of every offensive Indian stereotype, as well as annoyance at the fact that he's voiced by the white Creator/HankAzaria. There was even a documentary aired in November 2017 called ''The Problem with Apu'', in which Indian-American comedian Hari Kondubolu ''ruthlessly'' tears apart every problem he has with the character. On the other hand he also has a [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales very large fanbase]] who defend him because, while he is stereotypical, he's also one of the kindest, most successful, hardest working, and intelligent people in a town filled with stereotypes. [[https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/nov/01/apu-simpsons-hero Many]] [[https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-44027613 Indian]] [[https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2018/04/25/to-many-indian-americans-apu-is-offensive-to-me-hes-my-dad/?utm_term=.90e0d2e85809 fans]] were absolutely outraged when it was hinted he might be being removed from the show.
** Cookie Kwan is often seen as this. With her shrill attitude, stereotypical Asian rudeness and thick generic "Asian" accent you'd be hard pressed to find any fans of her.
* This is one of the reasons why Antoine from ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' gets a lot of hate. The character's entire concept is that he is a [[CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys French guy who is useless in any action-related situation]]. He also gets flak for [[FrenchJerk being rude to Sonic]], even though [[NotSoDifferent Sonic is more or less equally rude to him]]. Even [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]] in the comics didn't stop some of the hate since many felt it stripped him of any defining characteristics and reduced him to a GenericGuy with a French accent.

** Kyle has a cousin who's name is also Kyle, who's this in-universe. The other Kyle is a very stereotypical Jew, an annoying wuss who never stops complaining over minor stuffs, like dust or even snow. Ironically, this is also how the other Kyle views ''our'' Kyle -- as a stereotypical redneck hick.

** A non-ethnic example: the stereotypically LGBTQ character Garrison isn't exactly a favorite, especially among gay and trans fans of the show.
** City Wok owner Tuong Lu Kim doesn't really have any fans, since essentially all his humor comes from his status as a Chinese stereotype and a [[AsianSpeekeeEngrish ridiculous accent]] (courtesy of Trey Parker). Doesn't help that one episode suggest he's a SplitPersonality of a white man. He's not in most modern episodes, and the one that did focus on him had him lampshade how characters like him don't really fit into the current political and social climate.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'': The Super Friends had four such tokens. Samurai is the least stereotypical, only because you can't recognize him as Japanese until he slips into GratuitousJapanese with an American accent. Several other works such as ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' [[ReimaginingTheArtifact tried to fix their faults]] when they referenced them.
* ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' phased out the character of Mammy Two Shoes - the original human who had to put up with Tom and Jerry's antics. She was a heavyset African-American maid, although by all accounts it's ''her'' house they're terrorising. When the cartoons appeared on Amazon, they were attached with a warning that they contain "some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society...they were wrong then and are wrong now."
* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' with Kano, a member of the original Team Venture, who "[[Literature/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas despite his racial handicap]]" is a skilled pilot, and powerful enough to crush a boulder, yet gentle enough... to crush a butterfly. Also, he communicates with origami (until series 3).
