* TheInternetIsForPorn: Although the internet was invented in the late 20th century, the concept of taking a new means of communication to disseminate erotic works of art went from cave paintings, stone carvings, meso-American pottery, marble statues, wood-prints, metal etchings, oil paintings, early photography, printed books, motion pictures, and eventually the internet.

* NominalHero[=/=]VillainProtagonist: Gilgamesh is a tyrant and serial rapist at the start of ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh''. Even after his HeelFaceTurn, his heroic deeds are motivated less by a desire to help people and more by his desire to be remembered.
