* A ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica comic had the JSA fighting what appeared to be a band of villains out of history: UsefulNotes/{{Nero}}, Goliath, Captain Kidd, Cesare Borgia, UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan and UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun. It turned out to be one guy (a guard at a wax museum) masquerading as all these figures. However he succeeds in killing the entire male membership of the Society in that issue. [[ComicBookDeath They get better]].

* ''Literature/TheNightsDawnTrilogy'' features an invasion from TheLegionsOfHell in a SpaceOpera setting… A disproportionatly large portion of whom hail from the 20th century, potentially leading to massive {{Narm}} on the reader's part.
** There were enough people from other eras (past and future) so that (apart from the [[RuleOfFunny multiple Elvises]]) it could plausibly just be a statistical blip. And one of them's [[UsefulNotes/AlCapone Al freakin' Capone]].

* If you stretch it a bit, this is basically the concept of the ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'' series - bringing together legendary warriors from China's Three Kingdoms Period, others from Japan's Warring States Era, and a few guys from mythology for good measure - just so Orochi can have a decent challenge. Certainly, a teamup of Masamune Date, Lu Bu and [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong]] invokes the same sort of feeling...

* Parodied in a ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons: WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror'' short, where UsefulNotes/BillyTheKid leads a gang of historical villains, including the most evil German in history -- Kaiser Wilhelm!
** Another Simpsons example, though this one's just a brief throwaway - when Homer and Mr. Burns are stuck in a cabin together, Homer says he has "power... political power!" and we see a ghostly team of historical figures (including the ActualPacifist UsefulNotes/MahatmaGandhi) brandishing weapons.

* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' had these as Jack Spicer's army in a time travel episode: UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun, UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}}, most likely UsefulNotes/BillyTheKid or some other famous western villain, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Jack Spicer's first-grade teacher]].

Certain people in the present day have inherited these E-Genes and are able to draw out powers based on them (guns for Nobunaga, an axe for Geronimo, gravity control for Isaac Newton, etc.), while also communing with their spirit from time to time.
