* ''Film/MinorityReport'' somewhat evokes a 70's-90's "ClearMyName FugitiveArc within a [[CrapsaccharineWorld Crapsaccharine]] Future World" premise reminiscent of ''Film/LogansRun'', ''Film/SoylentGreen'' or maybe even ''Film/DemolitionMan''.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''DiogenesClub'' series: Started out as one to the British glam detective shows of the seventies, particularly ITC. Over time it evolved so that different stories would each focus on a different genre: the kid sleuth novels of the early 20th century, literary noir, superhero comics, etc.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'': The Warner Brothers ([[InsistentTerminology and the Warner Sister]]) can be taken as a throwback to UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation and other comedies of the time like those of the MarxBrothers, especially considering that their backstory is that they were created in the Thirties. Also they stole many, many jokes from them.

->''Overdrive'' is a street crime movie set in today's San Francisco, okay? It's one of those throwback movies to the 70's exploitation films. Bombs, car chases, afros, hot chicks, windsurfing, space shuttle, okay? You kinda get where I'm going with this? We're gonna go big with this one. We might as well even just call the movie ''Super Big and Awesome!'', but it's not gonna fit on a poster, okay? [...] Now, this thing is gonna be real lo-fi, okay, we're not gonna do any space-age crap, okay, we're not doing that. No lasers on the car, no kangaroos, and no Spanish, okay? We're gonna do long takes that are really unsafe with insane stunts, as many as you can squeeze together into one run.

Added DiffLines:

* In a way, ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'' is this for the ''Dragon Quest'' games, especially to ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIII''. Rather than a party of pre-made characters with their own jobs (even if they are customisable by the player) and personalities, the ''entire'' party is created by the player in everything from appearance to class, evoking a similar feel to older {{RPG}}s. At the same time, the game keeps many AntiFrustrationFeatures added to the series and ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'''s talent system.
