Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Beastars}}'' Has virtually the same synopsis as ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. A modern world filled with anthropomorphic animals where carnivores and herbivores are in a shaky peace. Both works have a friendship/relationship between a headstrong rabbit and a carnivore as well.

** Anime/TenchiMuyo preceded Love Hina, and pretty much established the Harem genre.
* ''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.

** ''Manga/GetterRobo'' was the first CombiningMecha and ''Anime/{{Raideen}}'' *almost* was the first TransformingMecha. Both concepts have been imitated, subverted, ripped off, deconstructed and reconstructed countless times since the seventies by countless mecha shows. Some examples are: the ''Anime/RobotRomanceTrilogy'' (''Anime/CombattlerV'', ''Anime/VoltesV'', ''Anime/{{Daimos}}''), ''Anime/{{Zambot 3}}'', ''Anime/{{Daitarn 3}}'', ''Anime/UFOSenshiDaiApolon'', ''Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon'', ''Anime/SpaceWarriorBaldios'', ''Anime/GoLion'', ''Anime/{{Dangaioh}}'', the ''Anime/BraveSeries''...

** After the runaway success of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', a ''lot'' of anime were released which revolved around a world where an apocalyptic event happened a few years ago, and now psychologically unbalanced kids are forced to pilot giant robots to defeat alien invaders. Often these will involve religious imagery and a conspiracy to cover up how dangerous piloting a mecha actually is. Examples include ''Anime/{{Gasaraki}}'', ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis Tokyo 2040'', ''Anime/BrainPowerd'', ''Anime/ArgentoSoma'', ''Anime/{{Betterman}}'', ''Anime/{{Geneshaft}}'', ''Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor'' [[note]]Fafner was produced by the same people so the leaders follow themselves with this one[[/note]], ''Anime/RahXephon'', ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', and to a certain extent ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico''.

* Anime was largely an underground movement in the States before the success of ''PowerRangers'', which led companies to look for more Japanese material to localize in 1995, including ''Anime/RoninWarriors'', ''Anime/SailorMoon'', ''[[Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman Eagle Riders]]'', ''[[Anime/TekkamanBlade Teknoman]]'', and ''Manga/DragonBall''. The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' phenomenon several years later advanced it further, resulting in the localization of not just more {{Mons}}-flavored shows, but also the {{shonen}} genre in general. American TV producers have tried to cash in on this as well, but, not wanting to pay for an existing series, create their own. For proof that this rarely ever works out, look no further than ''DragonBooster''.
* The success of ''Anime/TheAnimatrix'' paved the way for direct-to-video anime anthologies of popular Western franchises, animated by different well-known studios. So far, Franchise/{{Batman}} got in the act with ''WesternAnimation/BatmanGothamKnight'' and ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' with ''Anime/HaloLegends''. ''Franchise/DeadSpace'' and ''Franchise/DragonAge'' has also followed suit.

* GirlsLove series in recent years have taken ''a lot'' of inspiration for ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru''. To specify: a lot of them have lots of blushing, are set in an all-girls school (often Catholic), feature a SempaiKohai dynamic, and are rather like the RomanticTwoGirlFriendship trope. There have been a fair share of parodies though, such as ''Manga/MariaHolic''.

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 Creator/{{Sega}} vs. Creator/{{Nintendo}}.

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").

*** Likewise, ''Evangelion'' popularized the notion of GenreDeconstruction, encouraging many series to apply its dark deconstructive themes to other genres from {{Mons}} (like ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', ''Manga/{{Narutaru}} and ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'') to MagicalGirl series (including hits such as ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'') to shonen action series (such as ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' and ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''), to TrappedInAnotherWorld Light Novel Series (like '''LightNovle/ReZero''').
