Compare EvilLuddite, who resents technological changes rather than societal changes. Though considering they [[TimeMarchesOn go hand in hand]], an overlap is possible. This trope may appear unintentionally in a ReactionaryFantasy where the protagonist comes across as a DesignatedHero. See also StillFightingTheCivilWar, which occurs when a character is willing to admit that most things have changed, but a particular sociopolitical issue that most people have put behind them is still relevant. May be what a former hero becomes if the progress of society is too great since the former hero's time in the case of OutdatedHeroVsImprovedSociety.

* The world of ''OnePiece'' is strongly hinted at to be one where such forces, now known as the World Government, had become victorious. The "Void Century" refers to a hundred years of the world's history that has seemingly gone missing. Bits and pieces of what happened during this time have popped up as the series has gone on, including the existence of robot armies, space travel, and technological superweapons. (By contrast, ''One Piece''[='=]s modern day weaponry is restricted to cannons, swords, and flintlock pistols, and strongly resembles the 17th and 18th century days of high seas piracy.) The World Government actively hunts down and kills anyone with knowledge of the Void Century, which is why Nico Robin, an AdventurerArchaeologist who can read the Poneglyphs said knowledge is stored upon, has a price on her head.

* Church, especially the Roman Catholic Church, was being almost universally depicted as this in Soviet educational and edutainment literature, ruthlessly persecuting scientists and repressing new ideas to retain their tyrannical power. [[TheStrawmanHasAPoint Not that they didn't actually engage in this]], but the portrayals are grossly exaggerated with sweeping generalizations running rampant.

* The Jnanamukti in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' are a movement of {{Evil Sorcerer}}s who combine this trope, FantasticRacism and EvilLuddite to OmnicidalManiac levels. They yearn for the mythical days of Atlantis, when magic ruled all things and mages were far more powerful, [[TheMagicGoesAway before the Abyss was torn into existence and magic became a rare and delicate thing]]. As far as they're concerned, [[{{Muggles}} Sleeper]] ''civilization'' and the technology it has developed (alongside the existence of non-Mage supernatural creatures) is the only thing sustaining the Abyss. So, they reason, if they destroy civilization and technology, the Abyss will heal and Atlantis can be restored. Keep in mind that they have no ''proof'' that this is the case, they just ''hope it is''. But are they powerful enough to enact their genocidal plans? Well...

Enter this guy. He loves that time/place. A lot. Enough, indeed, that he will do his very best to recreate it. Whether the society around him wants it recreated or not. Usually it doesn't, if only because, if it did, it would recreate said times itself.

Sometimes, this guy will also be fixated on some other place, as well, and will try to recreate it on the world around him (so that, say, instead of going to Italy and trying to recreate the Roman times, they will try to recreate the Roman times in New York).
