* Similar to prisoners, expatriates can find themselves out of step with the culture of their home countries when they return if they've been away for a long time. Fortunately, the internet makes it easier to keep up with what's going on back home these days.

* Deliberately avoided in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': the summoning spell that brings the Heroic Spirits into modern times automatically equips them with modern knowledge. Saber [[spoiler: aka KingArthur]], for instance, is able to drive cars and motorcycles and suspects that she could fly a plane if she tried, due to her "Riding" skill combined with such knowledge. About the only Hero who ever displays real interest in the modern era is Rider aka [[spoiler: Iskander aka Alexander the Great]] in ''LightNovel/FateZero'', who is shown enthusiastically studying modern maps and atlases in preparation for "conquering the world".

* ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' films, with the [[Film/BackToTheFuture first]] and [[Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII third]] both being examples of "From The Present going into The Past", the third even moreso. The [[Film/BackToTheFuturePartII second]] however, puts our hero into an example of being "From The Present going into The Future" for the first half, then going back to The Present only to end up in ''different timeline altogether'' for the second half, only to end up going back a into being "From The Present ending up in The Past" for the last half of the film.

** The Saber of ''LightNovel/FateStrangeFake'', Richard the Lionheart, is a strange case in that he's an impulsive eccentric that simply doesn't ''care'' to blend in and instead acts like a British Don Quixote [[TheGadfly mostly for the fun of it]].

** And of course, the famous scene where Scotty attempts to issue voice commands to a [[AppleMacintosh Macintosh]], attempts to talk into the mouse, and is then told to use the keyboard, which he calls "quaint". And Gillian Taylor, who goes from the present to the future and stays there, though we never hear from her again.

In particular the Android stands out due to her odd syntax. It takes almost no time until some kids follow them to the Marauder and find out they're not who they say.

* In ''VideoGame/YookaLaylee'', Rextro Sixtyfourus is an N64-era character in a modern game. As this is a game where [[MediumAwareness everyone knows they are in a game]], much of the jokes involving him are about the characters being confused by him talking about things such as cheat codes which modern games don't have, as well as him being confused by things modern games do, such as online multiplayer. He ends up taking a class to familiarize himself with modern game design, but unfortunately for everyone else it ended up being mostly about microtransactions.
