Some Asians like me, but some don't.
Truth is I usually just get in the way.
The Americans might get me soon, but I will have to be shared.
Unfortunately, the people who will share will probably hate me.
Some say I can hear things, but obviously I can't.
An unconventional hero loves me, but always hits me.

Who am I?

I assume you're talking about a

Wall

"Some Asians like me, but some don't"

Great Wall of China?

"Truth is, I usually just get in the way"

Self explanatory

"The Americans might get me soon, but I will have to be shared." "Unfortunately, the people who will share will probably hate me."

Donald Trump's proposed wall, shared with Mexico

"Some say I can hear things, but obviously I can't."

Often used phrase about walls hearing things

"An unconventional hero loves me, but always hits me. "

Deadpool? (Breaking the fourth wall)

  • $\begingroup$ +1 I guess my riddle was too easy again XD. I'm giving the win to the one who can figure out the hero though. Which is not Mario. $\endgroup$ Nov 11 '16 at 5:06
  • $\begingroup$ The saying is "Walls have ears". Could the unconventional hero be the ball in Breakout? $\endgroup$ Nov 11 '16 at 5:24
  • $\begingroup$ @JonathanAllan I don't know what that is, but the hero will be much more mainstream than that. $\endgroup$ Nov 11 '16 at 5:35

Are you

a Wall ?
- Asians like me -> Great wall of China
- Wall gets in the way .
- Americans may get a wall due to Trump.
- Walls can hear things but they actually can't.
- Hero -> Mario (Suggested by @Techidiot)
