** Russians also invoke the GloryDays of Peter the Great, Ivan the Terrible, Catherine the Geat and the long 19th Century from Napoleon's Invasion to the Russian Japanese War mostly because it was the GoldenAge of Russian letters (Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov). This was also the era of the end of serfdom, the failed Decembrist uprising and early attempts at liberalism. There's also a lot of nostalgia for Russian Formalism and TheSovietTwenties, mostly because it was the GoldenAge for Soviet cinema.

** For socialists and left-wingers, the post-war era under Clement Atlee which led to the rise of the [=NHS=] and other social works organizations was the glorious period. On a cultural level, nearly all English people long for such triumphs as the age of Elizabeth I and the English Renaissance, the GrandUnifiedTimeline/FirstIndustrialRevolution and UsefulNotes/VictorianBritain, the Romantic movement and TheSixties.

* Mr. Incredible from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''. After a forced retirement from his career as a super-hero, he settles down and becomes a typical cubicle dweller. While his wife has adapted to their new circumstances, he is stuck re-living his past glories, [[spoiler:a fact which the villain exploits to get Mr. Incredible to unknowingly help him.]] He is even on the cover of a [[LampshadeHanging ''Glory Days''' magazine]].

* In UsefulNotes/{{Nicaragua}} the ruling FSLN and some former Sandinistas often invoke the 1979-1990 era of the first Sandinista government. Sure it was a period of brutal civil war, but it was also a revolutionary era when people still believed in the cause and (if you are a critic of Daniel Ortega) the revolutionaries had not yet turned out to be hypocrites. Some people whose politics tilt towards the right actually talk that way about the pre-1979 reign of Somoza, despite the blatant human rights abuses and the embezzlement and corruption that reached epidemic levels.

* Many a RailwayEnthusiast considers the era of steam or the heyday of the old timey railroads this. Particularly in the US and England, in part attributable to the "Beeching Axe" in Britain, which cut roughly half the network overnight and the creation of UsefulNotes/{{Amtrak}} in the US, which while preserving passenger rail service at a time it might well have ended, gutted about half the routes then in existence and made names that still evoke nostalgia and trains of legendary repute forever disappear. In countries with bigger UsefulNotes/HighSpeedRail networks, such nostalgia is less widespread, but some critics of UsefulNotes/DeutscheBahn still long for the "good old days" of Deutsche Bundesbahn when trains were still called D-Zug and not ICE.
