** [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball American football]] coaches are notorious copycats, even at the [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague NFL]] or elite collegiate level. Whenever an innovative offensive or defensive scheme is unveiled, it will quickly be adopted by other teams... until someone figures out how to stop it. The spread offense is king at the moment, as well as the read option offense (as of the 2012 season); past trends (most of which still exist in some form) include the following: on the offensive side, there's the West Coast Offense, Air Coryell, the Run-and-Shoot, the hurry-up/no-huddle offense (and its variant, the two-minute drill), the shotgun formation, the wishbone, the T-formation, and ''especially'' in the 2008 NFL season, the Wildcat formation. On the defensive side, there's the 46 Defense, the zone blitz, and the Tampa 2. There's a reason why the NFL is often called a "copycat league".

* Ever since Webkinz thought of virtual pets, it's very hard to find a stuffed animal without a virtual code. Technially Neopets did it first, though the Plush toys were based on the pets already on their site you can get without buying anything and the codes only give items.



* Once Toys/BeanieBabies took off in the late 1990s, many other collectible plush toy lines came into being as well.
* And speaking of 1990s toys, the popularity of the VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}} flooded the market with virtual pets in the late 90s, one of the most prominent being Giga Pets.



* Pillow Pets are getting a simply unfathomable number of knock offs, the most popular of which seems to be the Happy Nappers, and the most ridiculous being the Pillow Racer.



* The popularity of ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' and sister-series ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh'' have spawned several series that take heavy inspiration from them.
** MGA expanded their ''Franchise/{{Bratz}}'' doll line with ''Bratzillaz''. Everything about the line -- from the appearance of a few of the dolls, the catchphrase, and even the Youtube channel -- is doing its best to copy ''Franchise/MonsterHigh's''` success and image while staying with the legal bounds. That's not counting the obvious influences taken from Harry Potter as well.
** A smaller company named Playhut has come out with ''Mystixx'', an even more obvious attempt to cash in on Monster High.
** Creator/{{Hasbro}}, meanwhile, has its ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'' line. For the first time since G1 humans are a part of the franchise, though this time they're humanized versions of the ponies that have been [[AgeLift de-aged]] (or in cases like the [=CMC=], age lifted) into teenagers. In turn, Creator/{{Mattel}} is taking a cue from Franchise/MyLittlePony with its ''Monster High Fright Mares''.
** Creator/{{Disney}} seems to have jumped on the bandwagon with its ''Film/{{Descendants}}'' series. It's about the teenaged children of various Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon characters. Unlike the other series it debuted with a live action made-for-TV film.
** Creator/DCComics currently has ''Toys/DCSuperheroGirls'', a HighSchoolAU starring ComicBook/WonderWoman, ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, ComicBook/HarleyQuinn, and many other DC superheros (and [[AdaptationalHeroism villains]]). It has a [[WebAnimation/DCSuperheroGirls web-series]].
** ''Toys/{{Lalaloopsy}} Girls'' is a ''Lalaloopsy'' spinoff featuring older, high school aged versions of the characters.
** ''Project MC
'' is a toy line meant to subvert ClarkesLawForGirlsToys by having an emphasis on science and technology. The doll line invokes ''Monster High'' but in a more normal, science club setting.



* Go ahead. Just ''try'' to find a pony toy now that isn't trying to emulate the style of and ride on the success of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. One company infamously went far enough to [[http://shadyever.deviantart.com/art/Stompeez-Stolen-Rainbow-Dash-395101508 trace an image of Rainbow Dash from DeviantArt]] to slap on their advertising. Subtle.

** Similarly, [[TGIOChiliBees many other chains]] such as Applebee's, TGI Friday's, Bennigan's, Ruby Tuesday, and Fuddrucker's also copied the idea of putting memorabilia on the walls, but most have since backed down and gone for a sleeker, more "upscale" appearance. (Cracker Barrel also does the "stuff on the walls" motif, but they set themselves apart by going for a homey, rustic feel and including a gift shop.)
