* Another DC creation was the short-lived Brother Power, a hippie-themed hero [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2011/10/07/comic-book-legends-revealed-335/ whose exploits must simply be seen to be believed]]. In 2009, there was an issue of ''ComicBook/TheBraveAndTheBold'' that was written, which essentially put forth the idea that Brother Power was too tied to the past to exist in the present. The issue ends with him burning to death after realizing he doesn't belong in the 21st century.

* Comicbook/{{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 used to be like have a look at [[http://youtu.be/2UTKRR3KRyQ this DC short]]. He got rebooted in the ComicBook/{{New 52}}, dropping the breakdancing but keeping the vibrational powers.

* ComicBook/{{Dazzler}} (pictured at right), who later became a member of the Comicbook/XMen, was introduced with disco-based powers and costume (white jumpsuit and roller skates) just as disco was dying. It didn't help that she was given a big marketing push, meeting up with the likes of Galactus in a vain attempt to make the character cool, or that the entire project had begun as a proposal for a [[LiveActionAdaptation live action film]] in which character was at one stage to be black, and there are [[http://holdyourfireal.smugmug.com/COMIC-BOOK-IMAGES/Characters/Dazzler/JRJRDazzBogart/871688078_cKqUM-L.jpg John Romita Jr. sketches]] that exist of this early Dazzler. At one point they actually had a singer who was to play the Dazzler persona but the deal between Marvel and Casablanca fell apart. Later on, Jim Shooter put together a treatment for the aforementioned movie (also to feature Donna Summer, Cher, Rodney Dangerfield, [[Series/LaverneAndShirley Lenny and Squiggy]], Creator/RobinWilliams, the Village People and KISS), and the now revived Dazzler concept's appearance ended up based mainly on Bo Derek, who was slated to star (and when she was still attached to the role, People magazine even had her on the cover, the same month the character debuted, [[https://web.archive.org/web/20160411111032/http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/19800211-750-0.jpg with her husband holding a whole bunch of Marvel mags for research!]]). But at least she wasn't called the Disco Dazzler, as originally planned.

* ComicBook/WonderWoman was once caught up in this trope. For a time in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Wonder Woman lost her powers and familiar uniform, gained a wise old Asian mentor who taught her martial arts, and had espionage adventures wearing a white jumpsuit ... right around the time spy shows like ''Series/TheAvengers'' were popular. Most people hated this, Gloria Steinem even commenting how it was a needless depowering of the strongest female hero in comics, and it's pretty well in a DorkAge. Ironically, the spy concept as well as the white-jumpsuit were both used in a more recent volume of Wonder Woman following Infinite Crisis. Judging by some reviews, people liked it.

* Creator/DCComics announced in 2013 that they'd be debuting two new series, one a relaunch of the failed 1970s concept of rich-kid adventurers the Green Team, and the other a massive group of working-class heroes known as "The Movement". The idea is to represent "the 1 percent" and "the 99 percent."

* 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.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', Selphie has an 'Online Diary' which you can read at various points of the game. In 1998, LiveJournal had just launched, and blogging was seen as futuristic.

* {{Gudetama}}, 'an egg with crippling depression', appeals to the strain of depressive, self-deprecating humour made possible by the internet culture of the 2010s.

** ''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.

**''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".
