Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/BlackClover'' is a highly derivative work, noticeable by avid shounen readers very quickly that it takes chunks of the ideas behind ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', ''Manga/FairyTail'' and ''Manga/NanatsuNoTaizai'' to mix them together and come up with a plot of their own. It has an {{Expy}} plot of Naruto, dumb but determined and social pariah main character decides that he wants to get the highest rank in his country, another of the Fairy Tail guild, down to even similar [=HQs=] and settings similar to Nanatsu No Taizai. It's endearing to some, but to others, the lack of originality in the manga, together with not managing to be a SpiritualSuccessor to any of the above makes it seems boring and unappealing.

* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' has created a swarm of imitators, enough that {{Deconstruction}}s such as [[LightNovel/KonoSubarashiiSekaiNiShukufukuO KonoSuba]] and LightNovel/ReZero exist.

* If something in the OtokonokoGenre follows the premise of a "guy infiltrates an [[OneGenderSchool all girls school]] in drag, [[HaremGenre Harem]] disguised as [[YuriGenre Yuri]] ensues" there's a good chance it was inspired by, if not rip-offing, ''VisualNovel/OtomeWaBokuNiKoishiteru''.

* Manga duo Creator/FujikoFujio gained success with ''Q-Taro the Ghost'', which inspired a boatload of imitators following the formula, many of them from the Fujiko duo themselves. The best-known and the longest running of that is ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'', which itself inspired imitators.

A manga/anime series entitled ''[[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2012-08-11/nobuhiko-okamoto-leads-aoi-sekai-no-chushin-de-cast Aoi Sekai no Chuusin De]]'' was created which has a similar premise, but with several differences. There's significantly less {{Moe}}, the characters are based on video game characters/franchises themselves instead of companies, and the console war is more specific, focusing on {{Sega}} vs. Creator/{{Nintendo}}.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' [[OlderThanTheyThink wasn't the first-ever]] DarkerAndEdgier MagicalGirl series, but in its wake came a wave of darker MG shows, including ''DayBreakIllusion'', ''{{Wixoss}}'', and ''YuukiYuunaWaYuushaDeAru''. It's gotten to the point where some fans automatically assume that an upcoming darker MagicalGirl anime is "a ''Madoka'' ripoff" (whereas a lighter MG show is "a ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' ripoff").

** ''Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru'' and ''Anime/{{SD Gundam|Force}}'''s respective successes lead to a brief flood of shows with mecha that use [[SuperDeformed super-deformed]] proportions, throughout the nineties. ''Mado King Granzort'', ''Anime/LordOfLordsRyuKnight'', ''[[Anime/ShippuIronLeaguer Whirlwind! Iron Leaguer]]'' and the ''Anime/NGKnightLamune40'' franchise were all examples of this.
