** ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' has [[http://megaman.wikia.com/wiki/File:Mhx_vilestand.PNG Vile]], who looks suspiciously like a [[Franchise/StarWars certain bounty hunter...]]and his original Japanese name ''Vava'' even pronounces rather like Boba... However, in this interview by [[http://youtu.be/uVEfMIIGh6o Rockman Unity]], ''Vava'' was said to be (very loosely) based off of Bubba Zanetti from ''Film/MadMax''. Just a reminder that {{Engrish}} is not always your friend.

* ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable: The Gears of Destiny'' has the Florian sisters, who were clear composites of various ''Franchise/WildArms'' characters (Amita, for example, looks and acts like [[VideoGame/WildArms3 Virginia]] with a different costume and color scheme), as well as their dying desert planet of Eltria, which is the ''Franchise/WildArms'' series' dying desert planet of Filgaia under a different name. ''Nanoha'' creator and writer Tsuzuki confirms this in the official strategy guide, saying that they were created as a sign of respect towards Akifumi Kaneko, the creator of the ''Wild Arms'' games of which he has been a fan of since ''VideoGame/WildArms3''.

* Rhythm MMO ''Dance On'' rather shamelessly steals clothing and hairstyles from ''Anime/LoveLive'', ''VideoGame/TouhouProject'', ''Anime/DiGiCharat'', ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'', and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', among others. Humorously, Nico Yazawa's hairstyle is named "Nicole Nicole". If that wasn't bad enough, many of them are [[{{Microtransactions}} premium items]], meaning they're making money off of the blatant copyright infringement.
