* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has Lapis, who in her debut used the oceans to try to go home. [[spoiler:After Steven heals her gem, she regains her wings and is finally able to go home. But when she does, she finds that Homeworld has exponentially changed in the years (likely thousands) she was gone. Homeworld was too advanced for Lapis to the point of her being unable to fit in.]]

* ''Literature/EveryHeartADoorway'': A story about children who go other, fantastical, worlds and adapt, and then they face this trope if they return:
--> An Underworld ... [t]hat ... was accessed by walking through [[MagicMirror a special mirror]], [[{{Lunacy}} under the full moon]]. The girl we lost to that world was home for the holidays when the door opened for her a second time. Her mother broke the glass after she went through. We learned later that the mother had also been there—it was a generational portal—and had wanted to spare her daughter the pain of returning.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' has an odd example. The hero gets sucked into an alternate dimension where he died as a child and everything's different...except that the next 20 hours of the game are in Another World and it takes that long to gain the ability to return to Home World. The player never really gets the opportunity to explore Home until then. Serge is a HeroicMime, so we don't know his thoughts on this, but meta-wise this trope is in force for the player.

However, since the first time you get to properly explore it is after [[spoiler:getting body swapped with your nemesis Lynx, who is feared throughout the land]], its something of an example for him as well.

--> Still you never see the change from day to day
--> And no-one notices the customs slip away

Present in Western literature as early as in Creator/{{Homer}}'s ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', making it OlderThanFeudalism. Related to YouCantGoHomeAgain, NeverAcceptedInHisHometown, GoingNative, and possibly SoWhatDoWeDoNow. Occasionally overlaps with WhereItAllBegan. Contrast HomeSweetHome -- although this trope may also make the character realize that his home is no longer the place where he used to live.

** This can apply among personnel who aren't separating or retiring, but just coming home for a visit after joining the military. Even after a boot camp that may only last 2-3 months at most, they find that the experience has changed their outlook so much that they feel a definite disconnect with people they know. They're not interested in hanging out with their buddies all night drinking, because getting arrested for a drunk and disorderly now has ''serious'' consequences when your commander or first sergeant finds out. Their worldview has changed, so now they may or may not agree with the opinions of friends or family members. The list goes on and on...
