Added DiffLines:

* AlternateHistory and non-American example in CalBear's ''Literature/TheAngloAmericanNaziWar''. By the 2000s, teenagers living in the fifteen Administrative Regions which once made up the German Reich protest the unfairness of being held accountable for the crimes of their Nazi grandparents. When the Prussian wing of this rising political movement makes an armed bid for independence and reunifying Germany, this convinces the victorious post-war Allies to [[spoiler:nuke Stettin from orbit and kill hundreds of thousands of people]] as they're convinced, judging by what happened last time, that a reunited Germany will start WorldWarIII. [[CrapsackWorld You may have noticed this alternate world kinda sucks.]]

* A big reason why [[RacistGrandpa Pierce]] is such an outcast to the rest of the study group in ''Series/{{Community}}''. That doesn't stop the others from having Generation X vs. Millennial conflicts.

Frankly, the trope has long been appropriated and manipulated by the popular media and the business community as a marketing gimmick - just look at TheManIsStickingItToTheMan. Many social historians will tell you that the Generation Gap was always to a large degree a "manufactured controversy", and that most of the cultural clashes between young people and old people were concerned not as much with values and belief systems as with codes of decorum and behavior. It's been noted, for example, that most members of the WWII generation disapproved of racism; it's just that [[LawfulNeutral they disapproved even more of the (to them) radical tactics used to combat it]]. Same with the Vietnam War, although at least there was a fairly solid consensus behind that.

** The ability of the adults to be unearthly retarded and allow the children to be WiseBeyondTheirYears is due to that gap, which breaks the possibility of the two parties to share the same wave-length; the show puts this one into an extreme as it exhibits the '''children's''' ''point of view''; essentially: Because the show is about the children, and the children cannot comprehend how adults behave; they perceive them to be retarded.

* In the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', the heroes of past decades sometimes have very different attitudes toward crime and crimefighting than the younger crimefighters. The heroes who are still active from the 40s and 50s, for example, tend to hold a black-and-white view of morality and are much more conservative than the ones who were born in the 80s.
