* In the James Garner film ''Film/Tank'', he plays anot Army post's Command Sergeant Major (''the'' highest ranking enlisted man) who owns a WWII era tank. When his son is threatened by the local mmayor's "work farm," he resigns from the Army, takes his tank and bbrings his son across the state line to expose the corruption. The mayor gets a local retires Army man to break out ''his'' anti-tank rocket launcher to stop him. (He spins the story so the CSM looks like he's breaking out a criminal from a legitimate jail.) [[spoiler: They make it, with some help.]]

** In the [[Film/IndependenceDayResurgence sequel]], the Earth's entire satellite network was destroyed, so when they're anticipating a full-scale attack on Area 51, they use an antique radar that was going to be sent to the Smithsonian for display in order to detect the incoming fleet.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', you help the Boomers raise a sunken B-29 bomber from Lake Mead, which is then repaired with parts from a literal museum-piece B-29 and used during the final battle at Hoover Dam. On a lesser time scale, the player can reunite the Enclave Remnants for further support at Hoover Dam, for which they break out their old ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}''-era Advanced PowerArmor suits(the ones with the [[RageHelm insectoid helmets]]), and the Courier gets a suit as well. Another literal example is Vikki & Vance's 9mm submachine gun that was stolen from the death car exhibit, which the player can track down in an unmarked sidequest. Yet another unmarked quest earns you an [[AKA47 M1 Garand lookalike]] named [[ICallItVera This Machine]].

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' Wedding Arc, Rarity finds some old, retired guard armor in storage in the basement of the building they're hiding during the Changeling occupation of Canterlot and repurposes it. [[spoiler:Misfit Actual gets a similar idea and busts some replica Griffin War era crossbows out of storage at the museum because the Changelings would be watching the armories.]]

* In ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'', Millia is shown to have kept her old Valkyrie from the original Macross series over the years and breaks it out to assist when City 7 is cut off from the fleet (and reinforcements for awhile). However it's interestingly subverted. Millia can pilot it well enough to fight off the more advanced machines of the day, but when Gamlin who's only piloted more powerful modern Nightmare's tries to use it he's quickly shot down because he pushed it too hard.

** The Klingons and (based on revealed information about their playable faction) the Romulans does the same, with use of the ''K't'inga'' (i.e., D7, i.e., the Klingon ''TOS'' battlecruiser) and the ''T'liss'' (i.e., the ''TOS'' Romulan Bird-of-Prey) classes.

The starting ''T'liss'' turns out to be even more of this than the starting ''Miranda'', as it's not just an old design, it actually ''is'' a ''TOS''-era ship the local big guy took with him when he retired, and kept around just in case.

* Late in ''TigerAndBunny'' Kotetsu/Wild Tiger loses access to his PoweredArmor when [[spoiler:Maverick {{Unperson}}s him and frames him for murder]]. Luckily for him, his friend and former boss Ben Jackson's been keeping the old spandex costume safe -- although not entirely in mint condition.
