[[TropesAreTools This can also be done deliberately]]. A work might combine large numbers of anachronisms to create a timeless or surreal setting, where the exact era of the story (or the era the fictional world is supposed to be imitating) is both ambiguous and irrelevant, allowing the work's creators to freely introduce further anachronisms whenever doing so would make for a good plot or a [[RuleOfFunny good joke]].

[[folder:Audio Play]]
* The ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'' audio drama ''Invaders from Mars'' actually has some deliberate anachronisms, such as a character saying there was 49 states in 1938, when there was only 48, and someone repeatedly referencing the CIA when it wouldn't be founded until nine years later. This was due to the influence of "anti-time." Other mistakes, however, were less deliberate, like Creator/OrsonWelles' ''Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' broadcast being on October 31 instead of October 30.
