* Take a KnightInShiningArmor defeating a dragon and you have the myth of SaintGeorge. Replace the dragon with an EldritchAbomination and the knight with humanity's most powerful psyker and you have ''Warhammer40K'''s GodEmperor of Mankind beating the C'tan Void Dragon and locking it away on Mars. This may have bitten Mankind in the ass later, as the massive cult responsible for maintaining all humanity's machinery including weapons, vehicles and starships, are now worshipping an entity that has little sympathy for humans...

* Not that it mattered much (since the updated setting is destroyed), but Arthur in ''Film/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' is from an era of videophones, rather than one where people "still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea".

** The series of TheNineties already used this trope, being set in these years and using technology to match - i.e., the internet, smartphones, computers, etc.

* The 2007 film of ''Literature/BridgeToTerabithia'' changed the film from taking place post-UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar to being in contemporary times. This caused a lot of the film to be changed in order to fit 2000s standards. For example, Jesse's living conditions are changed, Leslie's design was [[YouDontLookLikeYou revamped completely]] because her original look wasn't that "weird" anymore, Jesse was no longer MistakenForGay by his parents for being an artist, and a lot of the ValuesDissonance was removed or edited. Despite the plot and character changes, the slang is still dated and someone forgot to tell the guy in charge of getting a school bus for the movie that it wasn't in TheSeventies anymore.
