* The iPhone ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' clone ''Super K.O. Boxing 2'' features a boxer named Shogun. This boxer is actually from New York City, and is a ScaryBlackMan rather than an oriental. It makes little sense unless you've seen ''Film/TheLastDragon''. And in case you didn't already figure out that he was Sho'Nuff with the SerialNumbersFiledOff, one of his moves causes his boxing gloves to glow.

* The NintendoDS fighting game ''VideoGame/WindyXWindam'' has character designs that are heavily based on ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Big is basically Potemkin minus his gigantic gauntlet; swordsman Kirikou is Ky Kiske with fire abilities instead of lightning; and Jack and Stin are clones of Slayer and Bridget, respectively.

** ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' marines are a pretty obvious copy of ''Warhammer40k'' Space Marines (as are Marauders and Firebats to some extent). The zerg bear a pretty heavy resemblance to the Tyranids, but there's something of ''Franchie/{{Alien}}'' in there too.

* If it's possible for a ''series'' to have a CaptainErsatz, then ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvaQbntJ4Yw&feature=related H.A.V.E. Online]]'' (known in America as ''Microvolts'') a Korean online multiplayer shooter, is this in artistic tone to ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' (The gameplay of both are pretty dissimilar actually - H.A.V.E. Online is not class based, and is in 3rd person view). The choreography in the trailer is also pretty blatantly copied. Some people were not happy, to say the least -- though once the original outrage had passed they were a little more forgiving. It also has its own ripoff of LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya. Ironically, [[http://www.haruhisuzumiya.net/2011/03/27/haruhi-suzumiya-in-online-shooter-toy-wars/ the Japanese version of the game has the real Haruhi]].

** Kenshi is essentially ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}'' meets telekinesis. Or perhaps Zatoichi from the titular Japanese TV series... meets telekinesis.
