** Goobacks, which originally aired in 2004, is about people from the future traveling to the past to find work, and used as a commentary on the issues with immigration, especially from Mexico. It's acknowledged that the people from the future did have it bad in their time period, but also brings up the fact that they have been stealing jobs from people from the present and have ultimately been making things worse for them. [[BothSidesHaveAPoint Their struggles are acknowledged, but the impact they have on the present is also acknowledged]], and that there is no easy solution.

** Trapper Keeper satirized the outcome of the 2000 election with Rosie O'Donnell objecting to the results of the kindergarten's student election just because her nephew didn't win. This episode became relevant again in 2016 when several Americans who were unhappy with the election results began protesting and rioting because they refused to accept their candidate lost.

* Music/GreenDay's rock opera ''Music/AmericanIdiot'' was written about American society under the Bush administration and the paranoia in American society surrounding it. As time went on, the songs' lyrics about how the media was brainwashing the masses became even more relevant thanks to Generation Y's increasing dependence on networking and the alienation from physical contact it caused. And when UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump was elected president, the TitleTrack saw a surge in popularity on [=YouTube=] as many people related to its lyrics about paranoia and confusion in society. The band itself is aware of this, as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rk6rX8y0FKM during their MTV EMAs]] performance, Billie Joe censored the line "The subliminal mindfuck America" as "The subliminal mind-Trump America."

** At the time of release in 2013, reviewers found Armstrong, ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'''s final boss, an unsubtle mess of Japanese stereotypes about American politicians. In 2016, a ridiculous hard-right American politician who uses internet memes and fake news to secure his support base and has a stated goal to 'make America great again' became [[Creator/DonaldTrump much more relevant and satirical]]. Edited images of Armstrong were even circulated among Trump's "alt right" supporter base.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' timed its [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIIRemake remake]] for a time when [[{{Hipster}} young people with silly haircuts]] were politically activated with paranoia about evil corporations and impending global catastrophe, while increasing gentrification and declining wages led to slums making a comeback; all while a loudmouthed blond businessman who lives in a cyberpunk tower and denies the fuel industry's potential to destroy the planet was campaigning to become elected President of the USA. It is worth observing that Square Enix refused to make a remake through the 00s despite omnipresent fan pressure and [[CashCowFranchise IP exploitation]] - at that time, [[PostNineElevenTerrorismMovie it was unacceptable to portray terrorists as having a point]], and so the ''Compilation'' sequels released in this decade display the characters' regrets of their terrorist actions and adoption of less radical lifestyles.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
**One factor as to why ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' went from being derided for its poor story to being a CultClassic (at least, [[AmericansHateTingle in the West]]) may be the similarities of its plot, and even some of its writing, to ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', an omnipresent fandom in the early 2010s, when ''V'' was rediscovered. (These similarities were coincidental - when Creator/AndrewHussie was asked about it, he said he had never played ''FFV''.)

* ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunninghamNinthGradeNinja'' has this in regards to Julian. He's the most non-stereotypical {{Goth}} ever; aside from being a PerkyGoth, he's a nice, amiable person who actually becomes an AscendedExtra. The Sorcerer, one of the major villains, tends to exploit Julian's ''fear'' most often, rather than the anger or sadness most fictional goths are known for, and this breaks the stereotype that goths aren't afraid of anything in turn. Overall, he's a very well-done (and [[EnsembleDarkhorse well-received]]) character. Keep in mind that this show isn't a Creator/TimBurton work or ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom''-this is a totally non-gothic cartoon that happens to have a legitimately good goth character in it.

** Trapper Keeper satirized the outcome of the 2000 election with Rosie O'Donnell objecting to the results of the kindergarten's student election just because her nephew didn't win. This episode became relevant again in 2016 when Donald Trump (a longtime rival of O'Donnell) won against Hillary Clinton and several of her supporters began protesting and rioting because they refused to accept she lost, partially as Trump had actually lost the popular vote.

--> '''Stan''': Look, it sucks that the immigrants' time is so crappy, but the cold hard truth is that if we let them all come back to our time, then it's just gonna make our time crappy too.

* ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'': Despite having harsh laws against No-Maj/wizard relations, MACUSA not only is led by a female president but she's also black (who's also not the first woman to hold the office-one served as far back as the 1700s), while at the time their No-Maj female counterparts only recently gained the right to vote at all, and in much of the US black people had theirs (among other rights) denied.
