** The area that the main cast is exploring used to be mainland Denmark, but the nation itself survived as a tiny island. The Denmark segement of the prologue focuses on someone from the mainland getting stuck on the small island in question because of sudden travel restrictions. The newscast announcing the travel restrictions mentions a couple of locations that become relevant in the early leg of the main cast's journey ninety years later.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' has a Planetary Constant rather than a Temporal Constant. According to G'Kar every known planet has a food that's identical to Earth's Swedish Meatballs.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' and ''VideoGame/{{The Legend Of Zelda Oracle|Games}} of Ages'' play with this trope a lot. It's possible the Deku tree is an example across the games, if the one in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' is the same one in ''Ocarina''. (More likely, it's the tree that grew out of the Deku Sprout, since the old one died.)
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', while the towns that weren't destroyed in the Great Calamity have been remarkably well-preserved in the century since, Revali's Landing and the Thunder Helm are two things from back then that are specifically pointed out to Link due to them being associated with the old Champions Revali and Urbosa respectively. Indeed, having those pointed out is enough for him to recover his memories of his old friends.

** As revealed in the climax of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', [[spoiler:Impa and Zelda are this, the former having guarded the latter in the Sealed Temple for millennia to maintain the magical seal on Demise]].

Indeed, having those pointed out is enough for him to recover his memories of his old friends. There is also the [[LongLived older generation of Sheikah and Zora]], but the fact that Link has amnesia means that they don't count from his subjective perspective.

** White London is slowly being drained of its magic and its life energy. The White dimension is currently undergoing a bloody, neverending civil war, with the leader (or leaders) of White London changing every few years. People there are willing to do ''anything'' to get a bit of magic power.

** Círdan the Shipwright is one in-universe. He has been around in so long (tens of thousands of years, making him the oldest known elf still there at the time of LOTR) that he is the only elf ever mentioned that has managed to ''grow an actual long grey beard.'' And he (or one of his two ports) is at the very least mentioned in almost every major work to do with Middle-earth.

* In ''Literature/TimeAndAgain,'' the hero ''must'' use a Constant to travel through time: His departure and arrival must be in the same structure. At one point, on the run from police, he ducks into the Statue of Liberty's disembodied hand (This was in 1880, and the statue hadn't been erected yet, but the hand holding the torch was on display in Madison Square Park in Manhattan for several years during this time.) and uses it to travel to the completed statue in the present.
