* Many of the ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess'' characters are teenagers (with Disney/{{Snow White|And The Seven Dwarves}} being the youngest at fourteen). During the times the stories were set it was more acceptable to marry young. Most post-2000s princesses are at least eighteen if they get married though.

* Hinted at in ''ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. While a lot of Tiana's hardships come from her being poor, there are a good many implications that she also has to fight against prejudices against her being a woman and black. One of the most noticeable is when the owners of a mill she wanted to buy casually dismiss how upset she is at being outbid, telling her "A woman of your... background, you're better off staying where you're at". While the exact meaning of the sentence is ambiguous enough that it could be interpreted a few ways, her reaction would tell anyone who knows about black rights at that time period what they were implying.

*** Slavery is one thing Laurence clashes with Horatio Nelson on. Nelson is staunchly pro-slavery, but is so on purely economic grounds, i.e. he believes that abolition might have a deleterious effect on tax revenue, and, by extension, the funding the armed forces desperately need for the war against Napoleon. He doesn't really oppose the idea of abolition, but definitely thinks that wartime is not the right time for social experiments.

* In the ''Last Train'' side story for 'Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'', British-born Tess Jones is shown to be uncomfortable with the idea of handling guns compared to her American and Canadian companions despite the Conversion War having gone on for three very long and trying years by this point.

* As most of ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' takes place in the Southern US when Jim Crow was still in effect, there is much of this to be had. Casual racism, sexism and homophobia is all around every corner - one elderly character is shown reminiscing about minstrel shows, the main character (a man from the 2010s) uses the image of a segregated bathroom as a way to keep himself from romanticizing the past, and women are expected to put up with less-than-savory situations (like an abusive marriage) for the sake of keeping up appearances. And in the case of the latter, Sadie knows nothing of OCD, the disorder that made her abusive ex so abusive towards her.

** Ironically by our standards, the Imperium seems to be racially and sexually equal, with the scorn applying only to FantasticRacism. The only exceptions would be organizations in the Imperium that are explicitly patriarchal and matriarchal.

* In ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' Princess Jasmine sneaks out and inadvertently gives away a fruit to a beggar child. Lacking money, the vendor would have chopped off her hand, had Aladdin not rescued her.

* Regular {{Shazam}} villain Black Adam is Captain Marvel's predecessor in the distant past. Five thousand years ago, he was a great hero who rose up from slavery, freed his people from the cruelty of am evil tyrant, and ruled over them for many years as a just, wise, and beloved king who bravely fought to protect them and brought them safety, peace, and plenty. But in the modern age of democracy and superheroes who [[ThouShaltNotKill respect the sanctity of life]], his once Grade-A heroic methods look rather barbaric.

*** An inadvertently inverted version cropped up in ''Ultimates 3''. Cap's horror and disgust at Wanda and Pietro's incestuous relationship was framed as him being out of touch and old-fashioned in the face of his teammate's casual acceptance of it. Given that vitually everyone in the modern era considers incest to be... icky, he comes off as the OnlySaneMan.

* For Ken Follett's novel ''[[Literature/TheCenturyTrilogy Fall of Giants]]'', which is dealing with the changes in society during the time of UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, this trope is inevitable. The most obvious example among the main protagonists would be Earl Fitzherbert, an English aristocrat who is against the very principle of women's suffrage, and [[EvenEvilHasStandards (although even he disapproves of the brutal way the Russian nobility treats its subjects)]] also against the emancipation of the lower classes.
