* This is probably the only reason Creator/{{Nintendo}} is still around. Since they kind of saved the game industry with the {{NES}}, people still respect the company, even with their massive flops (such as the GameCube and WiiU) and self-indungent games with very poor controls (such as VideoGame/SuperMario64).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/BestServedCold'': Discussed. When a notary claims that "mercenaries aren't like they used to be," the mercenary Nicomo Cosca counters that it's only natural for people to mistake the past as better than the present because they were younger and more idealistic. Some people get better and others get worse, but the world stays the same.

* Parodied in a ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' series in which Andy has to pick a strip in the newspaper she works for to cancel. Roger is incensed that she picked "Captain Goofball," because it was his favorite strip as a kid, even though it sucks now.

** In "Of Late I Think of Cliffordville," a CorruptCorporateExecutive makes a DealWithTheDevil to go back in time and re-live the fun of making his fortune. The lovely Cliffordville from his memories is not nearly as nice in reality, however, and the girl he always reminisced over is much less attractive and charming also. The Devil he made the deal with mocks him for indulging in this trope after he accuses her of altering the past, telling him that the past is exactly how it is--it's his own fault for not remembering it right.

* Chris-Chan, the messed-up creator of ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' long pines for the days of his High School years, seeing them as the absolute high point of his life in which he had friends and was "One of the kids". However; [[https://sonichu.com/cwcki/Song_of_Christian A video he filmed of himself back when he WAS in High School]] shows his teenage self complaining about getting an "F" (Failing Grade) in his assignments and how lonely and isolated he felt. He was regularly bullied by a number of students as well. The cherry on the crap sundae: His pals were merely acquaintances whom he only saw every other day in school who only hung out with him out of pity.

** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick does this too, just with girly movies and the occasional male-geek-adored CultClassic like ''Film/{{Dune}}'' and the ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' film.

She also did [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9dCWUuJZLw a video]] on how Creator/{{Disney}} built its brand around cuddly, feel-good nostalgia and historical revisionism, and how the film ''Film/SavingMrBanks'' explored this.
