* In January 1913, Vienna's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caf%C3%A9_Central Café Central]] was patronized by UsefulNotes/JosipBrozTito, UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud, UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, UsefulNotes/VladimirLenin and UsefulNotes/LeonTrotsky (the last two as regulars). Of these, only Freud had done by then [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian the thing]] for which he is famous today. The list of other famous (but not as famous) patrons is too long to reasonably fit here.

* Everyone in the afterlife of ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' is either a well-known historical figure or someone who would be familiar to Dante's readers. It gets a {{justifi|edTrope}}cation as Dante's guides point out these exemplary figures, or Dante himself recognizes them. They also usually have more important places in Heaven or more picturesque punishments in Hell. There are some exceptions, though; the hoarders and spenders, for instance, are so featureless that they can barely be distinguished from each other, and Dante does pause to talk with a nameless Florentine suicide.

** The ancestor variant shows up when Sam leaps into his own great-grandfather, a Union general near the end of the Civil War. At the end of the episode, he talks with a newly freed slave who declares that, since being emancipated has made him feel like royalty, he will be taking the surname King. [[CivilRightsMovement You can probably guess where this one's headed...]]

Note that this only counts if you're not specifically aiming for the famous person. For example, ''Film/BillAndTed'' don't count because A: they were actually ''trying'' to find UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan and Sigmund "Frood," and B: they had the help of a magic phone directory to find them. Though, even then, other well-known personages from the same period may crop up unexpectedly (UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte ended up piggybacking with them by mistake, for instance).

* The ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' series features a degree of the historical fiction version, with the heroes bumping into such famous historical personages as Kawashima Yoshiko (As a note, the little girl in the second game is supposed to be the historical one -- the one in the first game is a wholly fictional character, who, according to the series, is the namesake of the real one), UsefulNotes/AlCapone, Creator/HPLovecraft, and the Great Gama (yes, he was a real person - ask TheOtherWiki). Party members over the series include UsefulNotes/MataHari (under her actual name, Margarete) and Princess Anastasia Romanov.

* M.J. Trow's ''Lestrade'' novels are full of historic characters. Given the premise (a {{Deconstruction}} of Literature/SherlockHolmes using the LiteraryAgentHypothesis but telling the "true story" behind Watson's accounts) Sir Creator/ArthurConanDoyle is justified. Having Lestrade point at a baby and tell Watson he'd make a better Holmes than William Gillette, before revealing this is the infant Basil Rathbone, somewhat less so. Then there's Creator/OscarWilde, Creator/GilbertAndSullivan, UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper, Florence Nightingale...
