* Wrestling/{{WWE}} tag team Deuce 'n Domino were a pair of '50s greaser throwbacks complete with pompadours, leather jackets, a valet who dresses in a poodle skirt (albeit ''[[{{Fanservice}} much]]'' [[{{Stripperiffic}} shorter]] than actual ones of the period) and rollerskates, an entrance that involves them driving out in a classic convertible, and a theme song that wouldn't be out of place on the ''Film/{{Grease}}'' soundtrack. This got a brief subversion from play-by-play commentator Michael Cole, where he mentioned that they admitted in private with him that they realize it's not the '50s, but they like the look. They may have been prescient when it comes to rollerskates, though. Roller derby is currently making a comeback in large to medium-sized American cities, complete with the "retro" pre-1990s skate style.
* Long before Deuce 'n Domino, Wrestling/{{WCW}} had [[Wrestling/GlennGilbertti Disco Inferno]], whose gimmick was ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. In his later years, in an attempt to be more current, he became PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy and changed his name to Disqo (a play on Sisqo, a rapper who experienced faddish popularity around the turn of the century). That didn't work out for him, and so he went back to being Disco Inferno until WCW closed.

* ''ComicBook/{{Icon}}'' featured a Luke Cage parody named Buck Wild Mercenary Man, who showcased all the most ridiculous aspects of 70s "Blaxploitation" super-heroes. This was because the experiment that gave him his powers also literally froze his brain in 1973.

Subverted in that while Cap does eventually catch up with the times enough to function in society, his values system remains rooted in the 1930s and 40s (which usually serves as a tool for the writer to contrast Cap's idealism with the cynicism of the world around him).
** The UltimateMarvel version from ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'' plays it straighter, since the writers figured it would be more realistic to play up the DeliberateValuesDissonance between someone yanked from the end of WW2 and dropped straight into the vastly different world of the early 2000s. Reaction was mixed, especially when some authors began adding in more ''modern'' negative American values, like anti-French attitudes or anti-intellectualism.
