* UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill was known to be old fashioned for his time, being culturally much more at home in the Victorian era of his youth. His speeches were full of historical references, whether to English history or to the classical era, and he had a tendency to go on about WoodenShipsAndIronMen or the Middle Ages, always evoking a kind of HollywoodHistory to inspire the British people. He remained a believer in UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire well past the point that it was fashionable, and as soon as the war in Europe ended, the British people voted him out because they sensed that he was too much of a historical relic to lead them in the postwar years. All that being said, his historical imagination and [[GoodIsOldFashioned respect for tradition]] helped him see that the kind of modernity the Nazis advocated would lead to a pretty horrifying future.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' it's defied by Batman, who states that people who think Superman is an outdated boy-scout are unable to see him for the hero he is.

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'': "The Obsolete Man." The title man is prosecuted for being an (illegal) librarian and (illegally) believing in God. The government in that episode also admittedly espouses philosophies similar to those of Mussolini (see below).

** Ironically, Creator/HarrisonFord had flirted with this trope himself in ''Film/ANewHope'', when Han scoffed at Obi-Wan's coaching of Luke in Jedi weaponry, and ethos, as impractical and antiquated.

* Hagbard Celine in ''The Literature/{{Illuminatus}} Trilogy'' explains people fall in neophobes and neophiles, with 90% of the population being neophobes, afraid of change, and that these people are in the end, right.
** There's absolutely no moral dimension in being a neophobe or neophile. All heroes and all villains fall squarely in the neophile category.

* In ''Film/TimeBandits'', Evil jeers at the way God bothered with such things as butterflies. He's going straight to hi-tech.
-->''If I were creating the world I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils. I would have started with lasers, eight o'clock, Day One!''
** For good measure, when God appears at the end, he manifests as a somewhat officious old man in a gray suit.
