* TokenMiniMoe: Lolis are still very popular in Japan, but much like {{moe}} and {{tsundere}} character archetypes, this trope have received a lot of backlash among the western anime fanbase. This is mainly because many lolis are either portrayed to be too bland, [[MarySue idealized]] LittleSisterHeroine or {{Tsundere}}, or [[PanderingToTheBase pandering to lolicons and pedophiles]]. And much like the {{moe}} trope, lolis are seen to be very sexist among the western anime fanbase [[note]]It doesn't help to note that anime and manga have disporportionally higher portrayal of lolis than shoutas[[/note]]. Many North American licensors often stay away from anime that contains this trope (particularly if they are portrayed in a very sexual manner) with an exception of Creator/SentaiFilmworks.

* TheFundamentalist: The "Religious Right" regained pulse in a climate of increased moralism, yet the popularity of the markedly progressive Pope Francis has pushed the religion stand leftward, making it look as anachronistic.

[[InformationWantsToBeFree Internet freedom and personal liberties]] also became a hot-button issue, prompted by events such as information released by [=WikiLeaks=] and the arrest warrant against Julian Assange in 2010, hacktivists [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_(group) Anonymous']] involvement in many political affairs in 2011 and the internet's protest against SOPA and PIPA in 2012 in retaliation against [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil anti-digital piracy campaigns]]. All this came to a head in 2013 as the once-secret NSA was uncovered by Edward Snowden, putting the U.S. government into serious trouble.

* EightiesHair: Returned with a vengeance by 2013-14, after being the ButtMonkey of hairdos for many years. At least, big hair and New Wave undercuts. Until very recently [[note]]It is quite debatable if Jon Snow wears a mullet or not[[/note]], you were still very unlikely to see mullets on someone who's not a [[DiscoDan middle aged]] biker, a ButchLesbian, or both. Big curly bangs/fringes and scrunchies have also yet to make a comeback, and while mini side ponies are back, tying all hair on one side of the head is not.

* TheAllegedCar: Like it happened to subcompacts in TheSeventies, hybrid cars of the late 2000s and early 2010s were mocked for their flaws, most notably the Chevrolet Volt and now the Toyota Prius, with many of them being recalled. That these cars received federal stimulus didn't help (this became the core of the criticism against the Volt). Meanwhile, the car industry is still suffering from various recalls made in recent years.

* ChinaTakesOverTheWorld: In the first half of the decade China battled with the U.S. for economic primacy. See also the entry for MakeTheBearAngryAgain. However, this has thawed or cooled down in wake of looming problems for the Chinese economy predicted by economists such as Paul Krugman and the resurgence of the US from the Great Recession. However, in the recent years, China has been making aggressive territorial claims in South China Sea and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senkaku_Islands Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands]], rapid military buildup, and threatening war with nearby neighbors (Taiwan and Japan in particular).

* DisasterMovie: After being DeaderThanDisco for almost a decade ([[TooSoon because of September 11th and Katrina]]), the genre has seen a significant revival. Recent movies of the genre also tend to overlap strongly with SurvivalHorror.

* MoralGuardians: Resurfaced early in the decade from [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad both the left]] [[TheFundamentalist and the right]] in response to the perceived debauchery present on recent years, with "Blurred Lines" becoming one of the most controversial cases. This increased lobbying power has in part contributed to the expansion of web-originated contents.

** It's not so much that people are nostalgic for Communism per se, rather they are nostalgic for the legitimate social democratic alternatives that were once on the mainstream with occasional bi-partisan consensus. These goals were originally backed, [[TheMoralSubstitute even by moderates and conservatives because they felt that reforms could dial away the appeals of Communism]] but fell into disfavor in the 80s and 90s and the collapse of the Soviet Union made liberals move away from it, feeling [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness that revolution was no longer a significant threat to justify these policies]] in terms of political expediency.
