* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' is a little vague on whether or not the tanks used are ''actual'' [=WWII=] era tanks or modern reproductions. But if they are the originals, Kuromorimine definitely hit this trope with their use of the [[spoiler:Panzer VIII Maus]]. Only one fully operational unit was ever built along with a second, turretless main body. The surviving unit is actually a combination of the two prototypes, mating the turret from the complete model with the turretless second unit, the complete version's main body being damaged and unable to be salvaged.

* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': "Wild Horses" involves the Space Shuttle Columbia, which at the time was one of only four.[[note]]After the episode aired, Columbia itself was destroyed during reentry.[[/note]] The space shuttles require ridiculous amounts of upkeep, so the idea that one would still be in working order so far in the future is a fair strain on believability. But never underestimate the power of an obsessed geek (see also: Wiki/TVTropes).[[note]]The person who owned the Columbia is the person who hand built Spike's ship, the Swordfish. The shuttle is also extensively modified, being capable of taking off and entering outer space on its own, without needing any booster rockets.[[/note]]

* The ''VideoGame/AirForceDelta'' games have fun with this one. In addition to many of the above Ace Combat-featured aircraft, it also features Chinese variants of Russian fighters and plenty of prototypes including the YF-17 (prototype of the F/A-18, two built), the X-32 (prototype competitor to the F-35, one built), the Yak-141 (Russian equivalent to the F-35B, two built) and others.

** The fourth and fifth level of ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonorAlliedAssault'' revolve around acquiring documents related to, and later capturing a King Tiger tank. Unlike most other works set in World War II, which treat the tank as being more common, only a total of ''four'' of these monstrosities are shown, including the one that you and a number of other American soldiers capture.

** ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarships'' doesn't suffer as bad since may RealLife warships really ''are'' rare since the enormous cost and time it takes to build capital ships means something as large as a battleship may only have a production run of 2 to 4 units per class. Even so, a few "paper" ships make it through for the sake of balancing out the various nation's tech trees. Especially the German and Japanese navies, who couldn't build many of their late-war designs due to deteriorating industrial conditions as the Allies overran them.

* In ''Literature/ParadoxBound'', Harry drives a Ford Model A (the one that replaced the Model T, not Ford's first attempt at car manufacturing), modified to use a Garrett electrolytic carburetor (allowing it to run on water), among other things (higher top speed, much smoother ride). When asked by Eli why she drives a Model A instead of a much newer vehicle, Harry explains that [[spoiler:since she constantly "skids" around American history, an older car won't attract any more attention than any other classic car, while a futuristic car would be ''very'' noticeable in, say, the 1930s. Besides, any car past 1975 is way too complicated for a private owner to maintain, especially in time periods before modern electronics]].
