* In ''???'', a popsicled Roman Centurion does the usual "horseless carriage" remark, only to add, after the canonical explanation, that ok, so it is only an unsurprising "Greek Device", and then to brag about having seen similar gadgets when he was in Alexandria...
** Could the book be ''The Far Arena''?
** No, probably ''The Centurion's Empire'' by Sean McMullen.

* The protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' is cryogenically frozen on the day the bombs fell, and then thawed out two hundred years AfterTheEnd. They end up oscillating between this and ColdSleepColdFuture depending on the circumstances.

* A significant part of the premise of ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward]]'' was seeing them adapt to living 100 years in the future.
** Everyone but Raphael adjusted fairly quickly while Raph found the conveniences of the future to be ''inconvenient'', i.e. being attacked by appliances while trying to read the holographic newspaper. "I hate the future!"

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Princess Luna was sealed in the moon for a thousand years. As such, her dialogue is peppered with FloweryElizabethanEnglish (often [[NoIndoorVoice at high volume]]) and she is obsessed with archaic long-abandoned court protocol. The word "fun" is less than 1000 years old; as such, [[FridgeBrilliance she's unfamiliar with it]].

Added DiffLines:

* Caleb from ''WesternAnimation/{{Witch}}'' gets transferred from a medieval fantasy-like world to early 2000s America. He fits in pretty well but doesn't understand certain aspects of modern culture or modern technology.

* ''FantasyIsland'' often sent guests back in time to interact with historical figures. Other times characters such as Don Juan, King Arthur, and Jack the Ripper ended up in the 70s.

* ''{{Catweazle}}'' was an early 70s British show about a 10th century wizard who tries to cast a spell of flight to escape a group of Norman soldiers, but ends up in 1970 instead. There he encounters such strange wonders like 'electrickery' (electricity), 'tiny suns' (light bulbs) and 'telling bones' (telephones).

* An episode of ''EarthFinalConflict'' had an Atavus female and a Medieval English monk (who was hunting her) appear in the TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture world of ''EFC''. He is initially put off by Renee Palmer, as he expects women to be docile and subservient. After learning her name, he simply assumes she's French and leaves it at that, although he does ask if she's a courtesan or a harlot, given the way she dresses and acts, not understanding why she feels insulted by the question. Interestingly, no one seems to pay attention to a man walking around wearing a monk's cowl.

** The titular character is frozen in space and then revived 500 years later. [[TheUnfrozenCavemanLawyer He doesn't seem to have very much trouble adapting to the future]], though.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' gives us two out of time Rangers with Blue Ranger Koda (a caveman from 100,000 years in the past that was frozen in ice) and Gold Ranger Sir Ivan (a knight that got sealed inside one of the villains for 800 years). Both managed to survive by bonding to the season's MacGuffin and source of power (which grants the wielder eternal youth)

*** Speaking of which, Fry's on-again-off-again girlfriend Michelle is a prime example in "Cryonic Woman". She cringes and/or screams at the sight of every weird thing that wasn't in the 20th century, including all the non-human members of the Planet Express crew, and the Professor (once prompted) and Amy (when she says she's from Mars).

* One episode of ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' features Gary Cahuenga, a ventriloquist's dummy who was locked in a trunk for some forty years. When released, he thinks it's time for his appearance on the ''Series/TheEdSullivanShow'', and has some initial difficulties adjusting to modern times.

** Justified; there are still traditional orders of monks who wear the full habit and cowl, although they aren't as common as they once were. Medieval English personal hygeine (or the lack thereof) would however draw significantly more notice.
