* One of the main themes in ''TheDeathOfTheVazirMukhtar'', at least for the characters associated with the secret societies that were crushed in 1825 (the book is set in 1828). The main character's glory days are seemingly still in full swing, but a) he has great and well-founded fear of suffering this trope in the future if he doesn't take some risks and b) while his political and social career has been doing well, [[LonelyAtTheTop he has become increasingly detached from many of his old friends]] and has also hit a major writer's block, which leads to a lot of regret and nostalgic reminiscing on his part.

** This is especially prevalent on team sports, where becoming a professional is far easier than on individual sports. Many individual sports practitioners plan an "exit strategy" already in their teen years and study a trade or profession on which to fall when the career is over.

* TheSixties is this for nearly all First-World nations. For the French this was the period of "Les trente glorieuses", post-war UsefulNotes/{{existentialism}} and the UsefulNotes/FrenchNewWave and Chanson. For the English, this was the era of BritishInvasion and the rise of working-class English culture into the mainstream. For the Americans, this decade is marred by the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar but they nonetheless enjoy the triumph of the Civil Rights Movement, feminism, gay rights and the sexual revolution.

* TheBestPageInTheUniverse was one of ''the'' most talked about websites of the Web 1.0 era. His attempts to translate his old popularity into Website/YouTube popularity haven't fared well, as his real [[{{Nerd}} persona]] doesn't match well with his over the top troll style used in the writing that made him popular back then.

* In ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', it's amazing that Ducky has even had the time to experience all the things he's always rambling on about. He's not ''that'' old...

* Producer David O. Selznick had his greatest hit with ''Film/GoneWithTheWind''. He made hits after that, but nothing on the level of that movie. Of course, ''no one'' made hits on the level of that movie, ''ever''. Adjusted for inflation, it is to this day the highest-grossing film of all time.

* The Star League era of ''TabletopGame/BattleTech''. During its time the Star League was the unifying entity that held the Inner Sphere together, with the Star League Defense Force to protect it. However after the Amaris Civil War the Great Houses couldn't decide who would be new First Lord, and where eager to wage war with each other for supremacy. When the SLDF left the Inner Sphere, the Great Houses plunged the galaxy into the destructive Succession Wars which lead to a technological deterioration with each state scavenging anything they can use to maintain their war effort against each other.

** Well, in the Eastern Germany, the idea of Glory Days is coming back under the word "Ostalgie", or East Nostalgia in English. While every East German is happy with the reunification of Germany and the end of the dictatorship, economically speaking, the excitement of the 90s for East Germans died down quickly as their industries closed and unemployment rose. The East is still worse off than the West German parts, so quite a few people romanticize the time where they all had jobs and were relevant in their own way, although they could all do without the dictatorship. The success of some Eastern cities under the reunified state like Leipzig only seem to reinforce Ostalgie rather than end it, with East German symbols and period movies being really popular tourist items these days. Every major East German city will have a place dedicated to learning about it's DDR history, and while critical of the regime, still goes in depth about everyday enjoyments of the common people.
*** The liberalized successors of the SED, Die Linke, like invoking this trope in ex East Germany for votes.
