* 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.

* ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} and his partner/lover Hawk[[strike:girl]]'''woman''' frequently use maces, spears and other primitive weapons against criminals. Justified in that they're reincarnations of ancient Egyptian lovers; furthermore, the weapons are made up of the mystical Nth metal which has anti-gravity and sometimes anti-magic properties. Subverted during the Silver Age when they were extra-terrestrials from a world that had developed FTL starships. Nowadays it varies though the reincarnation cycle started when they found a ship of a world with the same name and touched it.

[[folder: Anime ]] * Played with in ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' -- set in medieval Japan, most characters behave like it's modern day, which is the whole premise of the show. Jin, the one character who acts appropriate to the age, is remarked upon as being "old fashioned."

* ''Film/GhostDogTheWayOfTheSamurai'' is entirely about this trope. The title character lives as a samurai in nineties Jersey City, working as a hitman for the mob. The film is interspersed with quotes from the ''Literature/TheHagakure'' demonstrating how Ghost Dog is doing his best to live by the code of the samurai in the modern age.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]] * Leonard [=McCoy=] from ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' both enforces and subverts this trope. He's rabidly in favor of fighting the dehumanizing effects of too much technology (especially the transporter) in favor of enjoying "the simple things in life", and yet sees "primitive 20th-century medicine" as just above trepanation, leeches, and blood-letting in its barbarity, preferring the "high tech approach" to healing. In general, he embraces the positive, constructive aspects of technological progress rather than the destructive or dehumanizing ones. This gets a LampshadeHanging in the book ''[[Literature/StarTrekDepartmentOfTemporalInvestigations Forgotten History]]'', where a character is surprised to hear [=McCoy=] railing against the past because she thought he was suspicious of modernity, and he replies "I'm suspicious of all kinds of things."

Pepperidge Farm remembers.\\ '''Fry:''' Those were the days. * Then there was the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' version: -->Remember when you hit that pedestrian with your car at the crosswalk and then just drove away? Pepperidge Farm remembers, but Pepperidge Farm ain't just gonna keep it to Pepperidge Farm's self free of charge. Maybe you go out and buy yourself some of these distinctive Milano cookies, maybe this whole thing disappears.

** In addition to the literary entries above, the Imperium of Man is generally reluctant to improve on its millenia-old technologies, let alone adopt those from other alien races. They seem to have culturally dead-ended themselves as well, as their state religion primarily revolves around the worship of their half-dead demi-god Emperor. Considering the amount of grief the Imperium remembers about the Age of Iron Men and occasional "new" technology that turned out to be demon infested, Nercons or a trap, this caution has some merit.
