* The whole premise of TheBradyBunchMovie is that the '70s incarnation of the family is transplanted into 1995 and comically unaware of the world around them being different than it was back then.

* The five Lisbon sisters in ''Literature/TheVirginSuicides'' are off by one decade. Their empathy for others, concern for the plight of nature, and distaste for their prudish elders clearly mark them as children of TheSixties, but unfortunately they're growing up in an ultraconservative Detroit suburb in TheSeventies amidst economic chaos. [[spoiler: Tragically, none of them can take it, and every last one kills herself, as if "called to another place" as the narrator puts it]].

** A lot of generals during World War One had the same problem. Their strategic ideas were still rooted in previous centuries, when two armies just combatted each other on a field until the last ones surrendered. The war of the trenches, however, simply couldn't be won this way and millions of soldiers were needlessly sacrificed in pointless charges.

* 20th century Belgian comic strip artist Willy Vandersteen (''ComicBook/SuskeEnWiske'') drew many stories taking place in different romanticized versions of the historical past. The only time period of his own century he considered to be interesting was WorldWarOne and even that only happened in one album: ''De Briesende Bruid'' for a short scene.

* European monarchs at the start of WorldWarOne still thought with the mindset of their ancestors in previous centuries. They imagined themselves as glorious despots to whom the ordinary people still looked up to. None of them realized that their glory days were on their way out.After the war many of them were forced to abdicate, as their countries became republics or dictatorships.
