* NapoleonDelusion: Because after a certain point in time, delusional people wouldn't know who Napoleon is unless they were history buffs/history majors. Also, in RealLife, AGodAmI and the belief that one is seriously connected to, harassed/persecuted by, or actually is a celebrity or the President of the United States are more common delusions, as is the possibly-''not''-delusional belief (depending on the person and their activities - there have actually been ''real'' cases of said harassment/persecution) that one is being harassed/persecuted by authorities, a conspiracy, or the like.

And while this trope becomes less often used, [[TechnologicallyBlindElders its reverse tropes]] is becoming more and more popular.
