* Vibe, a member of the [[DorkAge much-maligned]] Detroit-based Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, was a breakdancer with vibrational powers. To get an idea of what he was like have a look at [[http://youtu.be/2UTKRR3KRyQ this DC short]]

* {{Aggretsuko}} is a disillusioned Millennial, and also moonlights as a heavy metal growl vocalist in a frilly dress, a trend inspired by the popularity of {{BABYMETAL}}.

to:

* HelloKitty's birthplace is listed in her bio as "London". This was inspired by a fad for British culture and music in 1970s Japan when she was created, and Sanrio has been mildly embarrassed about it ever since.
* {{Gudetama}}, 'an egg with crippling depression', appeals to the strain of depressive, self-deprecating humour made possible by the internet culture of the 2010s.
* {{Aggretsuko}} is a disillusioned disillusioned and underemployed Millennial, and also moonlights as a heavy metal growl vocalist in a frilly dress, a trend inspired by the popularity of {{BABYMETAL}}.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' features Prompto, a photographer party member who takes shots of his friends, selfies, and photos of his food taken through filters. This was a fairly late addition to the game to ride the {{Instagram}} trend.

to:

**''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' owes a lot to Music/DestinysChild, with IdolSinger characters, an all-female party in the fashions of the time, a funk-influenced R&B soundtrack and some SpyFiction aesthetic flourishes taken right out of the video for "Independent Woman Pt. 1".

** There was a wave of nostalgia for UniversalHorror tropes in the early-to-mid 70s, which gave rise to the Fourth Doctor's portrayal as a bohemian Victorian {{Swashbuckler}} fighting aliens that resembled classic horror monsters.

* Night Thrasher, leader of the ComicBook/NewWarriors in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, was created in 1990 with a skateboard grafted onto his urbanized Franchise/{{Batman}} schtick to cash in on the rising popularity of the sport in the late '80s. As the '90s progressed, he used the board less and less and settled on a CoolBike early in the series, plus as any connection between skateboards and the term "thrashing" largely passed out of public awareness, his name [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast just sounds]] [[FreudWasRight awfully nasty]] (although Spider-Man [[LampshadeHanging made a joke]] along this line in ''1991''.) He fought with twin eskrima sticks so the thrashing part of his name could easily be applied to his weapons of choice. An odd detail that downplayed it with time was that he's a ''black'' skateboarder. For the uninitiated - his heyday was long before there were any big-name black skaters. (The aforementioned Rocket Racer, Marvel's ''other'' black skateboarding superhero, has much the same problem at first.) The concept has become less baffling now, since there is a subculture of African-American skateboarders. Music/LupeFiasco's hit "Kick, Push" is credited with helping popularize the sport among black teenagers.
