* Parodied in the final story of a ''Comicbook/{{Lobo}}'' {{Elseworld}} that reimagined the Main Man as various Western characters. "The Last Despera-bo" is a wistful page of the character reflecting on how times are changing and there doesn't seem to be much place for him any more. Then he gets hit by a truck.

* Though a different location and culture, SamuraiChamploo examines a similar transitional period in the 19th century Japan. Government and order is shifting away from aristocracies and gangs, citizens and traders from America and Europe and the culture they bring with them start slipping through the cracks, and samurais are quickly finding themselves no longer needed.

* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail: Fievel Goes West'' takes place around 1890 or so, implied to be the tail-end of the Wild West era because the boom town the Mousekewitz family expects to move to is now run-down and dying, and the Sheriff and folk hero Wylie Burp is now old, frail and past his prime.

* ''BigJake'' takes place in 1909. It featured a posse of Texas Rangers chasing outlaws in automobiles but ultimately the bad guys are defeated using old school gunfighting.
* ''ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'' is set between the years 1898 and 1908--a time when such "new" inventions like motion pictures are present. The abrupt transition from the WildWest to the Modern Age is illustrated in a cut scene from the movie when Butch and Sundance visit a nickelodeon and see a filmed dramatization of one of their train robberies ... [[{{Foreshadowing}} in which they're shot to death]].
