* The Dutch novel ''Kruistocht in Spijkerbroek'' (''Crusade in Jeans'') is about a 20th century boy who is stranded in the year 1212 and joins the Children's Crusade. He adapts relatively well despite some initial difficulties with language, and his 20th-century knowledge helps keep most of the children alive.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''/''Franchise/MassEffect'' crossover ''FanFic/TheLastSpartan'', Master Chief is finally found on the ''Forward Unto Dawn'' and is promptly thawed out...131 years after the events of Halo3. Being TheDeterminator, he gets over the prospect of never seeing anyone from the 26th century again fairly quickly. Not without his reservations of humanity joining [[TheFederation The Citadel]] or being nominated to become a Spectre though.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': En Sabah Nur wakes up in 1980s Egypt after being sealed for thousands of years, and he's understandably confused at first. He initially speaks ancient Egyptian, and none of the Arabic-speaking people he bumps into can understand what he says. He quickly overcomes the problem after meeting Storm: [[ExpositionBeam he learns every language in the world and the world's history in a matter of seconds]] by touching a TV screen.

* Atem (Yami Yugi) from ''Anime/YuGiOh'' was an Egyptian pharaoh 5000 years before the events of the series, which makes him a rather frightening arbiter of justice. Also happens in the ''Anime/YuGiOhTenthAnniversaryMovie'', in which Yusei ends up in Judai's time, and then both of them end up in Yugi's time.

* Most of the characters from ''Literature/AeonLegionLabyrinth'' since the Aeon Legion usually recruits [=MIAs=] from various points in history. They tend to experience culture shock when seeing [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas Saturn City]] for the first time where doors vanish in time rather than open and roads have been replaced by glowing lines that fade travelers to their desired location.

* The ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' arc "The 2800" uses this to answer the question of what exactly happened to the 2,800 Dominion warships the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Prophets]] made vanish in [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]]: [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS06E06SacrificeOfAngels "Sacrifice of Angels"]]. Turns out they got time-shifted 35 years into the future and reappear out of nowhere in the middle of an international summit on the Borg problem. It takes a lot of talking before they even accept that this happened, and getting them to go away still entails a big space battle.

* In ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'' short story ''Skeleton In The Closet'', vampire Antoni escapes his punishment tomb after eighty years of imprisonment, and is completely lost - the street plan of his city is completely different, a whole new political system came and went, along with new laws, culture and architecture, and even blood, with its higher vitamin and sugar count, is different and makes him nauseous.

* InUniverse example: Creator/JRRTolkien's notes on translating the Red Book from Westron mentions a few fun coincidences, which are of course due to him knowing the results he wanted when he was creating the language. For example the Brandywine river being both a transliteration of the Westron name "Baranduin" (golden-brown) and a reference to the Hobbit nickname "Bralda-hîm" (heady ale).
