* In ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'', Liam Geakes tries to impose a new magic system on the magical community. It's not a good system. It's full of bugs and {{Weaksauce Weakness}}es. Naturally, they're not happy.

* This is one of the main reasons why UsefulNotes/FormulaOne and IndyCar haven't added much safer closed cockpits on their cars, along with the idea that closed cockpits would be more dangerous in certain situations (such as a car on its roof or on fire). The argument goes that we've always been able to see what the driver is doing while they're driving, and closing the cockpits would remove that and, with it, the spirit of open-wheel racing. However, [[FatalMethodActing a pair of deaths]] from head injuries sustained in open cockpit race cars in 2015 seems to be turning the tide in this regard.

* In ''RiversOfLondon'' DCI Nightingale's defence of TheMasquerade pretty much comes down to we've always done it this way. To say Peter is not impressed would be an understatement.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'' had Indestructo-Bob beat up the King of Redneckistan, and due to tradition [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking he's now king]]. When Jobeaux and Yin show up to face him, Jobeaux is forbidden from using Woo Foo or getting help from Yin, since it's against tradition. Finally, Jobeaux just decides to ignore tradition, saying that if if it puts someone like Bob in charge, it's not worth following.

The polar opposite of AppealToNovelty, where the ''older'' position is right. See TheyChangedItNowItSucks, NostalgiaFilter, OlderIsBetter, LuddWasRight and GoodOldWays. This tends to be rolled out regarding consumer products and morality; in the former case, they don't make 'em like they used to, and in the latter, it was better in the good ol' days. Old ways do tend to be workable, or they don't become old ways in the first place; what makes this a fallacy is the unstated assumption that no better way is possible. See also CultureJustifiesAnything.

* Deconstructed in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', as the people of Spira rely solely on the tradition of the Grand Summoner and their pilgrimages in order to defeat [[EldritchAbomination Sin]] and bring about The Calm (the period in which the populace can live without fear of their villages being randomly destroyed by an [[BuffySpeak evil whale-thingy]]). However, this only lasts for a few months at most, so Sin would return again, and perpetuate the 'spiral of death' that the land is caught in. In addition, the [[TechnologyIsEvil machina-using]] Al Bhed, the only ones who challenge the ritual because of [[HeroicSacrifice what happens to the summoner in the process]], are ostracized by the rest of society, as they believe that Sin was born because of the use of machines. [[spoiler: And it turns out it was actually the traditional Summoner's sword that was allowing Sin to come back, among other factors]].

Potholes in spoiler tags are generally a bad idea.
* In "Literature/TheLottery", this is how the townsfolk justify [[LotteryOfDoom the eponymous event]]. They're appalled that nearby towns have given up the grand old tradition of [[spoiler:[[HumanSacrifice stoning a randomly selected person to death]]]], because it's what they've always done.
