* ValuesResonance: The second part of Pilgrim's Progress; the story of Christian's wife and children has them take up arms and help people including the mentally-challenged. This affirms that God is available for all and women, children and the mentally challenged can be brave pilgrims as well. This was written in the 17th century, when society had values deviating form God such as throwing the mentally challenged in a BedlamHouse, and most women were expected to StayInTheKitchen or make babies.

* MisaimedFandom: Of a more InsultBackfire type of way. Muckraker in the book is a character who is so obsessed with cleaning up mud on the ground that he fails to notice a golden crown above him. Journalists in the early 20th century who investigated big corporations were dubbed "muckrakers" as an insult, but it eventually turned into a positive term thanks to UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt's speech "[[http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/teddyrooseveltmuckrake.htm The Man With the Muck-Rake]]", which notes the irony of the nickname.

There's also the magazine company "Vanity Fair". If they took the name from Pilgrim's Progress (or were aware of the book when they chose the name), they either don't know the book, forgot or disregarded that the Vanity Fair in the book is a bad thing.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Very and deliberately so, and actually the reason it became popular: its Christian message is so anvilicious that the [[MoralGuardians Puritans]] approved of it, deeming it almost as suitable for reading on Sundays as the Bible itself.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''The Pilgrim's Progress'' can be a painful read for most readers today - including Christians - who aren't able or willing to look past the ValuesDissonance, unsubtlety and general preachiness of the book. The language doesn't help either, although there are editions with more modern writing.

** One of the "evil" characters is named Talkative. ''Talkative''. After all the other NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast, his seems enormously anticlimactic. Despite this, there is a point as being talkative can cause [[KnowItAllKnowNothing very]] [[MaliciousSlander serious]] [[LooseLips problems]].
