* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11332252/26/Our-Blades-Are-Sharp Our Blades Are Sharp]]'', a knight wearing a black armor wrought with rubies win a tournament and crowns a Stark girl as his Queen of Love and Beauty. Ned ''knows'' the guy is actually Domeric Bolton - his daughter Sansa's bethrothed - but the resemblance is not lost on him, nor Robert.

* This trope is a central theme of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', with the ArcWords of the first season being "This has all happened before." It's revealed that the current Mystery Incorporated are just the latest in a long line of mystery-solvers with an animal mascot, and every single one of their predecessors were driven mad by the ArtifactOfDoom that they're hunting.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Jon Snow points out that multiple times in the past Wildings have raised an army under a chosen King Beyond The Wall, in attempt to make their way south past the wall. They always crumbled when face with a proper army though, due to their lack of organized cooperation and military discipline. Jon's insistence that they will meet the same fate despite their passion and numbers is flippantly dismissed. Completing the cycle, Stannis utterly crushes the Wildling Army with a surprise cavalry attack.

* Creator/CartoonNetwork 's ''Creator/{{Toonami}}'' block. When it first premiered, it had limited animation for its CGI hosts, limited budgets to aquire new shows, and suffered tremendously in the ratings departments. It also started to see this pattern again, but due to the parent network's decision to fill the block with constant reruns and only new episodes of the infamous pre-''Shippuden'' ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' filler arcs. When it came back, ''Toonami'' had the same amount of viewership it did in the beginning, very few new ad bumpers, [[DeadmanWonderland only two]] [[Anime/CasshernSins new shows]], and most of its block [[Anime/CowboyBebop consisting]] [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist of]] [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex old]] Creator/AdultSwim anime on a constant repeat.

* In 1904, Japan started a war with Russia by launching a surprise attack on Russia's naval facilities in Port Arthur, without issuing a declaration of war. Almost forty years later, [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Japan would attack the naval base at Pearl Harbor without issuing a declaration of war first]].

* When Creator/JohnLennon saw for the first time a picture of [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasuda_Zenjirō Yasuda Zenjirō]], who was Creator/YokoOno's grandfather, he supposedly said "[[{{Reincarnation}} that's me in a former life]]", to which she responded "don't say that. He was assassinated". Come 1980, and what would the tragic fate of John Lennon be?

* This happens a lot over the ''Franchise/StarWars'' saga.
** ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' features the rise of [[TheEmpire the Galactic Empire]] and the near-total genocide of the Jedi with Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader's assistance. In the thirty years between their defeat and ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Luke Skywalker's efforts to rebuild the Jedi Order are undone by Kylo Ren's massacre, who allies himself with the fledgling [[TheRemnant First Order]]. Even worse, [[spoiler:Kylo Ren is Anakin's grandson]].
** The Empire blew up the planet of Alderaan with the Death Star in ''Film/ANewHope''. Years later, the First Order uses a similar superweapon to [[spoiler:destroy the entire Hosnian system]].

* Many a generation, when it grows old, complains about the next generation, how easier they have it, and claim things were better in the good old days.
