* In ''VideoGame/BackToTheFutureTheGame'', [[spoiler:Edna Strickland]]. When transported to Hill Valley's founding in the 1800s by accident, the spoilered person is ''ecstatic'' to be in such a "pure" era and makes no attempt to leave... until Beauregard Tannen shows up and builds a saloon. (Said character's views on any place that serves alcohol is to KillItWithFire.) Oddly, one of the first things this character says to Marty ([[TimeTravelTenseTrouble from his own perspective]]) is that [[{{Hypocrite}} he should not romanticize the past]].

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Mr. Burns is a cross between this and a clueless DiscoDan insomuch as he doesn't even ''know'' about many of the societal changes in the last century. In one episode, it's revealed that he has Confederate Slave Holdings in his outdated stock portfolio. In another, he still thinks there's a Negro League in baseball, and even more bizarrely, scoffs at the idea of [=non-WASPs=] in the major leagues (he's taken aback, for example, by a vintage baseball card showing Joe [=DiMaggio=] as a New York Yankee). And in another, he hires women as basketball cheerleaders whom he dresses in demure [[TheGayNineties 1890s attire]] and forces to perform to ragtime music. The cheerleaders "entertained" the crowd in the arena by [[ParasolOfPrettiness twirling their parasols]] and lifting their floor-length skirts to reveal their ankles. The crowd hated the act.... and Mr. Burns agreed with them - ''because he found it too obscene!''

* ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' is written by a passionately socially progressive, capital-A Anarchist, unapologetically transhumanist company that at one point [[http://eclipsephase.com/regarding-mras told Men's Rights Activists to stop being fans of their game]], meaning it's probably not surprising that they used this trope in-setting in the form of the Jovian Republic a.k.a. Jovian Junta, a state that [[NoTranshumanismAllowed limits the level of genetic enhancement available to its citizens]], rejects the BodyBackupDrive, views people who've been restored from backup as soulless abominations, names things after right-wing dictators and generally doesn't play nicely with the predominantly transhuman population of the Solar System.

** Another Discworld example is the villain in "Discworld/TheFifthElephant", who tries to force the new king of the dwarves of {{Uberwald}} into civil war because they view him as too sympathetic to modern mores.

* General Rumford in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is a heroic example. A political general and Chief of Staff in a mid-21st century state whose take on life, the Universe and everything is best described as that of an early ''19th'' century conservative (atheists should lose their citizenship, women should stay in the kitchen, etc.), he expends tremendous effort imposing these same values on his country, the Northern Confederation. His craziness [[BunnyEarsLawyer actually benefits his nation]], however, since the [[OutsideTheBoxTactic archaic stratagems]] he employs are [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough never anticipated]] by the Confederation's modernist, high-tech enemies.
