* This is the entire premise of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': Jack has been sent to the future and is trying to get back home to feudal Japan. Much of what little comedy is had in the series is dependent on Jack's lack of understanding in the future. Most notably, "Jack" was a slang three hipsters called him on the streets and he thought that was what they seriously thought his name was.

* In ''[[VideoGame/DarkFall Dark Fall II: Lights Out]]'', Benjamin Parker travels into two different future eras and one period of the past. His confusion at seeing what's become of the lighthouse he'd been checking up on could fit this trope, even if he didn't get the chance to interact with people as a social FishOutOfWater. [[spoiler: Also applies to Malakai, an AI-controlled space probe from the future, that ended up in the distant past from a botched deep-space teleportation accident. Having [[AiIsACrapshoot gone a little insane]], Malakai had since been attempting to manipulate people into helping him return home, including you.]]

* The ongoing ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' crossover saga ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6159511/1/Slipping-Between-Worlds Slipping Between Worlds]]'' deals with one of ''those'' series of magical accidents in time and space which, with the assistance of several Terry Pratchett characters, abducts a British Army patrol from Northern Ireland in the middle 1980's to the city of Ankh-Morpork. The Toms are in no position to complain about it, as they were seconds away from death in a rather large bomb explosion (everyone at home thinks they are dead). While the end-game is to return to Earth, the displaced squaddies have to adapt to life in a new, strange and potentially lethal place, ''very, very, quickly''... Critically acclaimed.

* Happens to Rainbow Dash in the MLP fanfic ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/296185/child-of-order Child of Order]]''. A stunt/experiment gone wrong causes Rainbow to find herself transported 450 years into the future, in what is essentially a hypertechnological version of Equestria. Upon arrival, she crashes, damaging two of her legs (and possibly several internal organs, too), although she does receive prosthetics. Understandably, she's horrified by some of the changes her country has undergone; as well as the fact that everyone thinks she's dead.

* In SergeyLukyanenko's ''[[Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth Sea of Glass]]'', the main character is a modern-day Russian man who ends up in the 22nd century. However, the cultural and technological shock is lessened by the previous two books in the series being about his adventures in a galaxy populated by numerous HumanAlien races. He mostly adjusts to life in the 22nd century with his wife (a HumanAlien princess from planet Tar) but still feels weird when he sees three young people (one of them barely 13) having sex in the woods. When he confronts an older man with this, the man explains that they are all legally considered adults (even the 13-year-old who has passed his self-sufficiency test) and, thus, are granted all possible rights. The older man points out that freedom must not be limited by any one person's morals or it's not freedom at all. So, if three consenting adults want to have wild sex in the woods, they can do that.

* Robutte Guilliman from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' was put on ice after being mortally wounded in a duel against Daemon Primarch Fulgrim. Nine thousand years later, the Eldar and Mechanicus collaborate to resurrect Guilliman so he can lead the Imperium against the tide of Chaos. Guilliman is appalled by the theocratic nightmare that is the Imperium, even musing that it would have been better for Horus to have razed it during the Heresy rather than letting it get this far, but puts on a brave face for the rest of humanity.

* Happens in ''ComicBook/{{Witchblade}}'' with former wielder of the Witchblade Katarina Godliffe as a result of her living in the Faerie realm for 900 years, for example when someone mentions Nicki Minaj she thinks Nicki Minaj is the Queen of America and she doesn't know how to work a moblie phone.
* ComicBook/JonahHex becomes this after being tossed through time to present-day Gotham City in the New52 ''All Star Western''. Amongst the shocks he experiences are that coloured folk are allowed to be peace officers, and that you cannot walk through city streets with six-guns strapped to your hips.

* ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers of Victory'', being a maxi-series with time-travelling villains, has several examples:
** Sir Ystin comes from a very distant past and ends up in the modern world after falling out of the Sheeda's time-ship. [[spoiler:She]] becomes horribly depressed at the modern world's apparent lack of justice.
** Klarion Bleak hails from Limbo-Town, a HiddenElfVillage under Manhattan that still believes that the colonial era never ended, but finds his way into the modern world while fleeing from a monster. He is delighted by the modern world.
** Frankenstein was created in the 19th century, but spent nearly over a century in stasis after an encounter with Melmoth in 1870. He adjusts relatively quickly, having received stray radio transmissions from the outside world thanks to the bolts in his head.
