* Each team in the [[AustralianRulesFootball Australian Football League]] has its own team song, usually drawing the music from a range of old sources (ranging from music hall, marches, a couple of [[WeirdAlEffect otherwise unknown works]], and even La Marseilles) and writing new lyrics about the team, but the newest teams have had songs written for them, some of which have aged terribly (the West Coast Eagles' song just sounds like [[TheEighties an Eighties power ballad]]). The exception is the Greater Western Sydney Giants, who have [[http://www.gwsgiants.com.au/fanzone/club-song got a club song]] written by [[Music/TheCatEmpire Harry Angus]], which is decidedly oompah to hit the century-old feel of every other team song.

* The [[AustralianRulesFootball Australian Football League's]] "heritage round" has teams wear old-style versions of their guernseys. Hawthorn fans seemed to particularly like their heritage strip, and there is a push for the team to change back to it permanently. Turned well and truly UpToEleven in 1996 where the AFL turned the clock back a hundred years to when it began, bringing out vintage cars, styles of dress and radio to celebrate.

* In Creator/{{Jaleco}}'s self-referential ArcadeGame ''The Game Paradise: Master of Shooting'', there is a warning message early in Stage 5: "32bit-CPU Captured by 8bit-CPU." The enemies start turning pixelated and jerky, and pastiches of ancient video games like ''VideoGame/SpaceInvaders'' and ''VideoGame/HeadOn'' ensue.

** And it continues on with ''VideoGame/MegaMan10'', also in faux 8-bit sprites. Its faux box art has more-or-less the same style of Mega Man as 9's, with now-unlocked-from-the-start Proto Man joining the badly-drawn fun, and boasting "Dual FX Twin Engines" and a "Parallel Hyper-Bit Interface" much like how ''Mega Man 9'' promised an "Ultrasound Graphics Synthesis" and an "8-Bit Fidelity Engine". The [[http://www.gametrailers.com/video/exclusive-the-mega-man-10/62738 "lost" commercial]] for ''10'' comes complete with all the attitude of video game ads in the 80s and poor VCR tracking. (The commercial music, though, is [[VideoGame/MegaManX an anachronism of sorts]] for what is supposedly the 80s.)

* Music/GaMetal includes a few [[SongStyleShift 8-bit interludes]], for example in ''[[VideoGame/AceAttorney Cornered]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Masked Dedede]]'', but curiously never in any of the remixes of songs that included 8-bit in the first place.

Removed Sonic 4 entry. Returning to the base gameplay isn't enough to qualify Sonic 4 as retraux, the entire game has to be a deliberately old style.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4'' for Xbox Live and PSN is a return to the gameplay from the first three ''Sonic'' games, though the graphics are not retraux 16-bit but rather 2D sprites built out of pre-rendered 3D models (ala ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry''). The BrokenBase is still as bad as ever, though. ** Game Land Zone from ''VideoGame/SonicColors''. The layout of the levels are basic replicas of the levels from the classic ''Sonic'' games, and the music played in the levels are a 8-bit chiptune-styled remix of the music from the main game.

* A Chinese developer known as ''Waixing'', known for its notorious RPG conversions, actually remade the original ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' for [[{{Dendy}} famiclones]].

* Gentrification or renovation of large urban areas can lead to large-scale renewal of some of the oldest parts of a city, as the place is done up to attract people with fresh paint, unbroken windows, and verandahs and awnings overhanging the footpath that no longer look like they're going to collapse on top of you when you walk under them, and to celebrate the history of the area. Some of these can go a bit far in their presentation, as they are given extra atmosphere by means some might consider an excessive amount of faux-historical packaging, such as [[http://thoughtengine.deviantart.com/art/Street-Buildings-in-Townsville-550593820 Flinders]] [[http://thoughtengine.deviantart.com/art/View-of-Flinders-Street-Townsville-551317217 Street East]] (second picture sepiatoned on GiMP) in Townsville, Queensland; the road is designed to make horse-like clopping sounds when cars are driven along the street.

* A number of toy and model kit manufacturers over the years have released older items in current packaging, designed to remind one of the old packaging. Hot Wheels Redliners are still available in some places, Matchbox once released a series of diecasts in modern blister packaging but with a little box similar to their oldest form of packaging included, and Round 2 Models, who own a few of the older brand names of model kits known to older Americans, often use the original box art for kits first released in the 1960s, unless there are legal issues to work around (such as losing the licence for ''LiveActionTV/TheMunsters'' while still being allowed to sell the kits of the cars). One problem with that is that the kits haven't been re-tooled since they first came out, such that the tooling is as old as the hills. Another example is the reproduction lithographed tinplate toys currently being released solely for the collector's market. * You can still have a house built in older styles from the 19th century onwards; [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queenslander_%28architecture%29 Queenslanders]], for example, are still being built, albeit with current materials and techniques, and are available in many styles echoing the older styles, including Victorian, Federation, Edwardian, and Ashgrovian (a 20th-century style adapted from American California bungalows.)
