* A lot of cities that suffered relatively recent wars have their historic buildings destroyed which were only recently restored. The famed Osaka Castle? Rebuilt in the 70s with concrete after multiple destructions. The bulk of the Gyeongbok Palace complex in UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}} was constructed in the '90s. A more extreme example is the Fraunkirche of Dresden, completely restored in ''2006''.

** East Asian countries like China and Japan did not have national flags for most of their millennia-long history. It was in the late 1800s that increased exposure to European ships flying flags caused them to think, "Hey, maybe we should make up flags for our countries so that they can't defeat us with [[Creator/EddieIzzard the cunning use of flags]]." Moreover, China's current flag was invented by Mao's communist regime in 1949.

* Of course ''most'' people know from memory that the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' series went on from 2001 to 2010, but thanks to the "1492 Pictures" in the credits small children think it was from centuries ago. You could say that kids don't qualify as "they" or in other words people, but they're still going to grow up.

** ComicBook/HarleyQuinn wasn't officially introduced into the DC Universe until 1999, but she's such an indispensable part of the Batman mythos that it's now practically unthinkable to include TheJoker without at least referencing her.

* Cars didn't exist until the early 30's. They also didn't look quite like like what you think of when you hear the word 'car'. This is the ''real'' reason you see horses and carriages and dirt roads in some fictional works, not because the characters are too poor to afford a car. The first Ferrari road car was built in 1947, when Enzo Ferrari was nearly fifty and the motor car was over fifty.

* Modern depictions of Medusa or other gorgons usually show them as lamia-like beings, with a snake's tail instead of legs, as well as the traditional snakes for hair. The snake tail is not part of the original myth; it was added by the 1981 movie ClashOfTheTitans.
