* Many nations who were former empires in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' get moments reminiscing about the glory days. The HotBlooded BloodKnight Prussia, who spends the entirety of one strip retelling the story of how he became TheLeader of the Germanic states and unified Germany, bragging about [[{{Pride}} his awesomeness]] the entire time. [[ChivalrousPervert France]] thinks wistfully about how powerful he was when Napoleon was in charge. England's got a powerful NostalgiaFilter for the days of TheBritishEmpire. The PrincelyYoungMan Austria clearly misses his days as a [[VestigialEmpire great empire]], to the point that he continues [[ImpoverishedPatrician acting like one in the present day]].

** And what brought this speech on is that Lord Zedd does that, to the point people nicknamed him 'Al Bundy'.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' has a few examples:
** The Eldars used to have galaxy-spanning empires which imploded with the birth of [[EldritchAbomination Slaanesh]], and reduced to a DyingRace who can never return to their home worlds (which now lie in the midst of the Eye of Terror). It helps that the Eldars still maintain their supreme arrogance and superiority complex, wanting to put the other younger races to their place and reclaim their former glory.
** Humanity themselves had the Dark Age of Technology, where mankind created anything that could have been created and rapidly colonized the known space. Then the Age of Strife happened, throwing everything to the crapper. Fortunately for the humanity, after the Age of Strife came the rise of The Emperor and The Imperium of Mankind, which led to the ''second'' GloryDays of the Great Crusade. With Space Marine ''Legions'' backed with mighty war machines fighting as the Imperium's [[{{Mooks}} basic troops,]] nothing could hope to stand in The Imperium's way. ''Then'' the HorusHeresy happened, and everything went to an even deeper crapper than before, and The Imperium has been repeatedly described as 'rotting' or 'decaying' ever since.

** Especially notable is the countries that formerly comprised Yugoslavia. Tito, the strongman who dominated the country for most of its history, was a savvy politician who managed to prevent Russia from taking little direct control of Yugoslavia's operations. This spared his people from many of the abuses that other Soviet satellites experienced. This, as well as his success at suppressing internal conflict between ethnic groups (much more impressive given the conflicts of the 90's), makes many Balkan people nostalgic for his rule.
