* ''Series/SamuraiGourmet'' is subtly about the Generation Gap, from a specifically Japanese point-of-view. It's especially highlit in "Yakiniku Her Way", where protagonist Kasumi has to confront his twenty-one-year-old niece about her career choices over dinner. Since the series' point of view is a sixty-year-old Japanese man, the reasonable compromise is to insist that deciding to be a musician is fine, but [[ValuesDissonance not against your father's wishes]].

to:

* ''[[Film/{{Wings 1966}} Wings]]'': One of the themes is the gap between the generation that suffered through World War II and the new generation of Soviet youth, growing up in the 1960s with no experience of sacrifice and less of a sense of duty. When Tanya suggests that her mother Nadya quit her boring job and let other people teach the snot-nosed punks, Nadya is appalled.
--> '''Nadya''': I never even knew such words as these: "Let someone else do it.

* ''WesternAnimation/IsItAlwaysRightToBeRight'': DiscussedTrope, as the parable says that "a gap appeared between the generations" and the animation shows a literal gap between old and young, followed by several more gaps as the various factions of society split off from each other.

* Speaking of, ads for ''Series/TheGreatIndoors'' play up Joel [=McHale's=] jaded, cynical, worldly Gen-X-er's distaste for his [[StrawmanPolitical idealistic but]] [[KnowNothingKnowItAll clueless]], [[ManChild shallow, immature]], [[NewMediaAreEvil distracted]], and [[TheDitz downright odd]] Millennial/hipster coworkers (Creator/StephenFry is there too).

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.
