** A fair number of Song Of Ice And Fire Self Inserts have done this, most strikingly in ''Fanfic/GreyjoyAllaBreve'' in which Theon Greyjoy receives not only the memories of a modern man familiar with the books, but a mental connection to TheOtherWiki and thus detailed knowledge of everything from gunpowder to photography, to medicine, Bessemer process and flight.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'': Much of the technological progress in Dunwall seems to be associated with the name "Anton Sokolov" -- a brilliant, if troubled RenaissanceMan who almost single-handedly invented the contemporary whale oil-based industry, among other things.

* ''Literature/TheYoungAncients'' gives us a MagiTek example in [[TheArchmage Tor Green Baker.]] In a decade or so of story time, the Kingdom of Noram goes from MedievalStasis with some magic items floating around to a damn-near post-scarcity society with [[CoolSpaceship cool spaceships]] and a moon colony. Tor and his family are eventually banished from Earth, in fact, because they're too disruptive to everything and the world needs time to adjust to things like instant healing. Aside from having a lot of imagination and workaholic tendencies, the major difference between Tor and every other Master [[OurMagesAreDifferent Builder]] is that Tor always spends an extra hour or so on his designs, to make them easily duplicated and mass producible.

* Attempted in ''[[Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark Envoy from the Heavens]]'', where all attempts by human agents to subvert [[HumanAlien Osieran]] MedievalStasis end in failure. When Ivar tries to subtly reference early experiments with steam engines, people point out that they tend to explode, making them unsafe and, therefore, undesirable. The local horse equivalent is only used for pulling chariots. Ivar's suggestion of a saddle to ride the animal are met with horrified expressions. The locals would never put their weight on such noble animals. Political upheaval is out of the question, as TheEmpire is extremely stable and firm in its rule of the sole inhabited continent. The continent on the other side of the planet is uninhabited, but the local religious beliefs preclude attempts to explore oceans (they think the world is flat).

* ''{{Arcanum}}'' gives us Gilbert Bates, who invented the verse's first steam engine, sparking an industrial revolution that transformed Tarant from a backwater hole into a world superpower. [[spoiler:And by 'invented', I mean 'blatantly copied off an abandoned dwarven prototype that he had been shown'.]]
