** The protagonists' horses in ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'', ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' and ''Disney/{{Rapunzel}}'' all look and act almost exactly the same. They are mute, so they communicate through facial expressions. They are also impulsive and often disapprove of their masters' kindness towards people they dislike.
** Launchpad Mcquack (''Disney/DuckTales'', ''Disney/DarkwingDuck''), Dawson (''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective''), Pumba (''Disney/TheLionKing''), Louis the alligator (''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'') are all shy, unsure and sometimes not too bright sidekicks of arrogant, vain people. Also, Launchpad's dad is an Expy of Creator/JohnWayne. (No wonder the guy had issues!)

Also, Launchpad, Dawson, and Pumbaa aren't portrayed as geniuses, but they're smarter than might be immediately recognized, which their partners acknowledge (even if in Darkwing and Timon's cases it's by [[GladIThoughtOfIt stealing their ideas.]])

** Countess Coloratura from the season 5 episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E24TheManeAttraction The Mane Attraction]]" is one to Lady Gaga. They both have titles of nobility in their stage names ("Countess" and "Lady"), they are both capable of singing more traditional songs while having a glitzy stage persona, and they both have shown to be very kind to others.

The fact that Applejack's pet name for Coloratura is "Rara" cannot be a coincidence, either.

* Ellen Yin and Ethan Bennett from ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' are more or less counterparts of Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen. Which is a bit funny because Renee Montoya originated in [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries B:TAS]] and became a CanonImmigrant.
** Detective Ellen Yin also heavily resembles [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Elisa Maza]] transposed into the Batman universe. She even wears the same outfit. Interestingly, Creator/GregWeisman also wrote a handful of episodes for the series.
** Also, Ethan Bennett ''is'' Harvey Dent. From the long friendship with Bruce right down to calling Batman "Bats," a la Harvey from ''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween''.
*** A interesting case of the Bat embargo. During the "interviews" segments they reveal due to Teen Titans they were restricted in who they could use.

** One of the ways this is most ironic of course is that the original Scooby teem are themselves expies based on characters from the Dobie Gillis stories and tv show. Proving that it is important to always keep a sense of accurate history. Many things are expies to things that came before them, sometimes even ones usually think are themselves the source are just another link in the chain.

Added DiffLines:

** [[ScoobyDoo Scooby Doo]] is an expy of Astro from ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons''. Both are human-sized dogs capable of bipedal walking (granted, Astro is more capable) but preferring all fours. They both can speak but with the same impediment. Both are cowardly, often taking out bad guys by accident, though Scooby is {{Flanderized}} in this respect. Finally, both share the same voice actor: Don Messick.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs'': This show has many characters similar to the show ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' as both shows were created by Scott Fellows. It also shares characters similar to ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' and ''Disney/BigHero6''
** Tyler Bowman is basically an expy of Hiro Yamada as both are leaders of their teams who are children and their strengths are more focused on their intelligence and wisdom
** Kevin Reynolds is basically an updated version of Johnny Test due having similar selfish behaviors and their ability to transform into superheroes, not to mention their tendency to make bad decisions.
** Shope is considered to be an amalgamation of Susan and Mary Test due to them being scientific geniuses and wearing glasses.
** Roach is considered an expy of Fred from ''Disney/BigHero6'' as both are laid back, naïve and goofy boys who were raised by rich families and are superheroes.
** Zenblock is basically TheAhnold of the show but he also has some similarities to Jumba Jookiba as both speak in a foreign accent, act manly, are aliens, and have skills in mechanics but unlike Jumba, Zen is an agent for an extraterrestrial government and not a fugitive of one
** Memnock is basically has resemblances of Agent Wendell Pleakley as both are aliens who share similar skin colors, have some effeminate interests, are fascinated with the cultures of Earth, and work for an extraterrestrial government but Memnock does not cross dress and is more manly than Pleakley. Memnock also shares similar traits with Mr. Black as both are agents who like cooking and are voiced by Bill Mondy.
** General Blorgon is basically a masculine version of The Grand Councilwoman from ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' as both of them are leaders of an alien government, have serious personalities, and have light blue skin.

** This show's version of Lex Luthor borrows heavily in terms of both personality and methods from [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} David Xanatos]], who was also created by ''Young Justice'' showrunner GregWeisman.

* Being a huge homage to ''Series/TheATeam'', the main cast of ''GIJoeRenegades'' understandably have some similarities to Hannibal's crew.
