** This is more pronounced in UltimateMarvel, where there's a bigger gap between Cap getting frozen and thawed, and he has had far less time to get adjusted. For instance, while dating the Wasp, she was annoyed that his chivalry bordered on patronizing, he was bewildered by what she wore and watched on TV, and talked like her grandfather. To his credit, Cap was ahead of his time in some respects such as in the ''Ultimates Annual'' which has a World War II photo of him in costume, proudly standing with the African American Tuskeegee Airmen at a time when doing so was considered taboo by mainstream American society.

* Bill Kraft of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' prefers to live in the 1930s, and his dress, mannerisms, home, furniture, and reconditioned car all reflect this, as does his family. Though they certainly have no issue taking advantage of modern medicine, still they have found a doctor who is also part of the Retroculture movement and is willing to make house calls. Later, this is imposed over all Victoria (formerly New England) not as a law, but as a cultural norm with more power and endurance than mere legislation.

* In JohnCWright's ''[[Literature/TheGoldenOecumene The Golden Age]]'', ''The Phoenix Exultant'', and ''The Golden Transcedence'', Helion and the Silver-Gray movement he helped found intensely support this to provide discipline and structure in a way that can't be enforced by law.
* Literature/TheDresdenFiles:
** Harry Dresden likes to act old-fasioned, partly because he's a wizard, and partly because it annoys Murphy.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Kakei is an old-fashioned samurai type, conservative and proper and unafraid to tell others [[TeamDad how they ought to behave]]. It's often PlayedForLaughs, given his {{Buttmonkey}} status.

* A persistent Chinese legend is of a traveler who finds an {{Arcadia}}n village living peaceful and happily in some out-of-the-way corner. Talking with them, he learns they are under the impression that they are still living under the last dynasty, or the one before that. In Communist China, they are said to have asked "Who now sits on the Dragon Throne?"

* In ''Literature/TheCavesOfSteel'' the majority of the Earth population are 'medievalists' and cling to old fashioned views like not having robots do every job and not talking in public restrooms. The main hero lampshades it, thinking about every era has it... and one day, his own times will be viewed as such.

* ''Literature/AliceGirlFromTheFuture'' features an old fashioned man who doesn't trust modern tech. That is, he refuses to use air cars, preferring the old fashioned personal wings, he doesn't like a new electronic food distribution computer installed in the zoo, insisting old fashioned robots are better (well, the computer does prove to be bugged)... and he is the only man capable of urgently repairing some advanced alien equipment.

* Some people interpret ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' in this light. The majority of the Fellowship - the hobbits, the wizard, the elf, the Ranger, even the dwarf - come from natural or spiritual backgrounds, while Sauron and his allies are far more industrialized. The story itself begins in the peaceful, pastoral Shire and ends in the barren, fiery Mordor. Even the author admits that such days can't last forever, though, as the epilogue ends with [[spoiler: the elves departing Middle-Earth for good]].

May overlap with GoodIsOldFashioned, with villains and other characters taunting him as old-fashioned, but this is when the writer uses the shorthand, or the character himself, and those who admire him. Note that being uniformly old-fashioned is not necessary; the character can pick and chose the best of both eras, as long as those characters he is contrasted to reject the best of old times as old-fashioned.
