* The DoggedNiceGuy: Is he a determined and heroic go-getter who happens to be the victim of [[{{Tsundere}} a bitch]] who [[AllLoveIsUnrequited won't give him the]] StandardHeroReward, or [[StalkingIsLove a creep with]] [[EntitledToHaveYou an entitlement complex]]? Both? Neither? It depends on the writer, and what the prevailing views of sexuality and relationships, and gender roles, happen to be in a particular time and place.

* SexIsCool: First appeared in the 1970s at the peak of the "sexual revolution" to be annihilated by the following decade. Open sexuality returned with a bang in the 90s and 00s, but an overuse of the trope has led to another bust during the 2010s.

* RavenHairIvorySkin: In [[OlderThanSteam older times]], pale skin was a sign of wealth and therefore highly attractive: most working-class people worked outside for long periods, developing tans, while affluent noble-types stayed indoors, staying fair-skinned. Then, as beach culture became more popular, pale was out and made way for the DarkSkinnedBlond during the 60's, 70's, and later the 90's and the '00s. But then the increasing awareness of skin cancer made tanning less popular - and the bottled "fake tans" that came out as a result looked, well, fake and made people who used them seem oblivious and trashy. Combine that with the rise in the Goth subculture and its embrace of the '50s pin-up girl image, and pale and dark-haired came back in fashion although lighter is favored nowadays.

* SmokingIsCool: In the 1920s, when most Americans wouldn't even ''drink'', smoking a cigarette was thought to be rebellious - even countercultural - both by those who engaged in it and those who disapproved of it. As a result, it became "cool" to smoke [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority precisely because it offended so many people]]. A generation later, in the 1940s, [[EverybodySmokes smoking had become so commonplace]] that it was hard to believe it had ever been frowned upon - but [[TheManIsStickingItToTheMan the mass media still insisted on smoking being cool]]. Then, a generation after ''that'', in the 1960s, it was confirmed that tobacco use led to lung cancer, so smoking became socially unacceptable again. Finally, in the 1980s cigarettes became regarded as classy once again. And while this trend lost favor in the 1990s, smoking ''cigars'' enjoyed a revival of popularity among young hipsters, perhaps as a thumb to the eye of PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad. Since then, smoking in general has gradually regained popularity in media devoted to adults, as a way to indicate that a character is rebellious or carefree - although it's still viewed with suspicion and disdain in the larger society, although the emergence of smokeless tobacco and the like has made smoking somewhat more acceptable.

* TheAllegedCar: Depending on the decade, economy/electric cars are either seen as the sign of a thoughtful, world-conscious protagonist or a slick street racing enthusiast, or effeminate crap made by Evil Foreigners out to destroy America, and worshipped by cash-strapped nerds. For larger cars, the driver will either be a nail-biting {{Badass}} or a thoughtless conservative who hates the enviroment almost as much as they hate themselves.
