* Oddly enough for a brutish mercenary, Canderous Ordo of ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' admits that the Mandalorians cannot go on fighting the way they once did, and is often ''furious'' at the Mandalorian mercenaries and bandits seen in the game, which he sees as embarrassments to the armor. At the end of the first game, he expresses a desire to do more with his life and preserve the ways of his people so they'll be remembered. By the second game, he's taken the title and helm of Mandalore - ''Mandalore the Preserver'' (Te Taylir Mand'alor). [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Three centuries on]], a splinter faction of Mando'ade, unhappy with the current Mandalore (an Imperial puppet) call themselves "Preservers" and follow ''his'' teachings as The Good Old Ways, at least until [[ShaggyDogStory they were wiped out]] and their leader exiled to Taris.

** In Essos, Slaver's Bay are quite proud of Old Ghis, a civilization that was vanished and replaced by Valyria 3000 years ago, and are fierce at maintaining their "traditions" of chattel slavery. Daenerys, in response, revives the Targaryen tradition of shutting things down with extreme prejudice.

Added DiffLines:

* Witch Culture in ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' is shown to be steeped deep in tradition, Luna Nova in particular filled with various traditions, customs and ways that seem archaic by modern standards. Because of this, many of the students and staff have a bias against Akko, a regular person from a non-witch family that idolizes Shiny Chariot (a witch many other witches dislike due to her use of magic for entertainment).

*''Podcast/TheMagnusArchives'': Inverted by the ship ''Tundra'' in the episode "Boatswain's Call" - the mate's eponymous whistle and the old-fashioned wooden lifeboat with oars belie (or perhaps portend) the evil that is aboard.

** Michael Garibaldi is a fan of 20th century Warner Brothers cartoons (specifically Daffy Duck; B5 itself was produced by WB), and generally basks in a FilmNoir vibe. Also has a 20th century revolver (his great-whatever-great grandmother was apparently a UsefulNotes/{{Boston}} cop) and motorcycle, each of which only pop up for one episode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': Along with retrograde gender roles, Marthas are expected to cook everything from scratch and all food comes from organic farms. In the latter case it may also be inspired by the fear of environmental toxins, so that they no longer use artificial pesticides.

Added DiffLines:

* A big part of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. In a BadFuture dominated by evil robots and crazy advanced technology, the titular hero really stands out with his traditional gi, his hat, his sandals, his SamuraiPonytail and his magic katana.
