* The opening titles in ''SoylentGreen'' play under a photo montage showing technology advancing through the 20th century, getting bigger and more environmentally destructive, ending in the mess that is the movie's setting.
* In ''[[{{Film/Oldboy2003}} Oldboy]]'', a progressing series of TV news fragments is shown to present the duration of Oh Dae-su's captivity in a single hotel room with only a TV set as means of contact with the outside world.

* The Creator/CartoonNetwork Groovies short "Musical Evolution" had JosieAndThePussycats performing in several different time periods (and costumes), including the 1970s disco era, 90s metal, the WildWest (country and western), 80s Music/{{KISS}} style rock, and modern disc jockey style.

* A ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' CouchGag has Homer starting as a unicellular organism, becomes a fish, climbs out of the ocean, evolves into a human, walks through parts of human history, and ends up at his sofa, and Marge asking "Where have you been?".
** Another couch gag shows the Simpsons as the casts of {{Sitcom}}s from different eras.
* The opening scene of ''WreckItRalph'' progresses through 30 years as evidenced by the change of video game platforms.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KdE0p2joJw launch trailer]] for ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} VI'' starts with a man drawing a map and contemplates with his wife that they'll set sail to new places and adapt when they get there. When she asks that, the man, in procession, lights up the Colossus, arrives in China via the Silk Road, goes to war in Winged Hussar gear, tests out the Wright Brothers' flying machine, and then, facing an aerial dogfight. The last scene ends with wife embarking on exploring space with him saying that, to paraphrase it, the sky's the limit.
