-->'''Calvin:''' Yesterday Dad went to buy a hardcover novel. He said he wanted to read something long, rich and thought-provoking for a change, and he wanted a cloth binding so his book could be carried around and reread later. Then he said he was going to buy the book with cash, so nobody could trace the purchase to him and exploit his interest for commercial purposes.
-->'''Hobbes:''' Your dad's going into the future kicking and screaming, isn't he?

* Van Rijn from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' he died 200 years before the events of the story and, the exquisite craftsmanship and intricacy of his Muses remain unsurpassed by other clank designers. He was also able to make ''sentient clanks'', something that's considered widely to be impossible even 200 years later. Although there have been hints he got a leg up thanks to his conversations with [[spoiler:The Muse of Time]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TemplarArizona'' has the Pastimes, citizens who dress from other eras (and sometimes long for their preferred time). Flannery is appalled at being called a Pastime because of her love of '20's garb. She points out her ex-boyfriend (with his stupid powdered wig) repeatedly stated only land owners should have voting rights despite being a renter himself.

* ''FanFic/InFlight'' has Shirou musing that [[BloodKnight Karasuba]] would have been hailed as a hero and great warrior if she had been born an Amazon in Ancient Greece or a fighter in mythological Ireland. In the modern era, she only scares and unsettles people by her bloodlust.
* Terrence Higgs from ''FanFic/BlackSky'' has a very medieval, courtly relationship with Dorea Black. When he decides to forever swear himself to her as a loyal liege, she laments he ought to have been a resident of King Arthur's Camelot.

* ''Series/TheSopranos'': Tony and his friends are well aware that the mob's heyday is long over with, but they have a hard time coming to terms with it. Especially with the fact that modern technology and science continues to make ruining protection rackets and committing crimes without getting caught more and more difficult.

** Likwise Yuya, the protagonist of ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', would have fit right in the GX era for the aforementoined reasons :while he actually has a practical deck, he still abuses NewPowersAsThePlotDemands and is extremely HotBlooded, but most people in Arc-V actually use dependable Meta-Decks.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' character Yoruichi is hedonistic, egalitarian, and emotionally expressive, although she was born in a highly regimented society akin to feudal Japan. She tries to live up to her aristocrat family's expectations (and succeeds for a while, because of her courage and martial skills) but didn't think twice about leaving when [[spoiler:Aizen's machinations forced her into exile]]. This is the main reason why Ichigo was surprised by TheReveal of Yoruichi's origins.

* UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill. In a sense, the true-Victorian Churchill was ''born'' in the right century--the 19th. He just happened to be born at the wrong end of it. Funny thing is, he managed to convince Britain to want to be like him. Sort of goes with being a MagneticHero. Quotes from teleplay ''Churchill and the Generals'': "He's always the 4th Hussar, charging the guns at a gallop... I wouldn't put it past him to take over the 8th Army himself, on horseback, waving a sword".

-->''"The entire history of modern imperialism, so firm and self-confident when UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria of Great Britain died, [[NewerThanTheyThink had lasted no longer than a single lifetime]] -- say, that of Winston Churchill (1874-1965)."''
