* When KFC pioneered fast-food chicken in TheSixties, many other chains began pursuing fried chicken as well. Many burger chains such as Hardee's and Red Barn began selling it, and flash-in-the-pan chains such as Minnie Pearl's Fried Chicken sprang to life. Perhaps the most notable competitor to spring out of the fried chicken boom is Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, which is still the second largest chicken chain after KFC.

* The iPhone can be considered the first smartphone, and the one from which inspired most other smartphones. However, in recent years, Apple's actually fallen behind the times of its competitors. It wasn't until 2016's iPhone 7 that they delivered an iPhone with [=IP67=] dust/water resistance certification, and it wasn't until 2017's iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X, that iPhones began to have wireless charging. Water resistance and wireless charging are things that Samsung has been doing for years. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R59TevgzN3k Lampshaded in one Galaxy S8 / Note 8 ad]].

** Thierry Mugler's ''Angel'' is a shriekingly loud LoveItOrHateIt combination of Chocolate/Caramel, white flowers and patchouli. Due to its surprisingly raving success it inspired hundreds of knock-offs by brands in all price ranges.

* In 1982, the handgun industry was changed forever when Gaston Glock created the Glock 17. While it took a while for the shooting public to move away from the standard of metal-framed, hammer-fired handguns, the Glock series pistols eventually became the most widely used personal sidearm for civilians, law enforcement, and many militaries around the world. Competition for the Glock was slow to materialize; in the 1990s, Smith & Wesson had its Sigma series and Ruger had the P series pistols to compete, but both of them eventually faded out. In the 2000s, the Springfield XD series and the Smith & Wesson M&P series were the chief competitors (along with the Sigma's successor, the SW VE and later the SD VE lineup, which are essentially economy versions of the M&P). But it wasn't until [[TheNewTens the late 2010s]] when the rest of the gun industry finally entered the market for polymer-framed striker-fired handguns. SHOT Show 2017 featured many, ''many'' major manufacturers rolling out their versions of black polymer guns, all aiming to dethrone Glock's dominant position in the industry. These include the CZ P10 C, the Beretta APX, the Remington [=RP9=], the Ruger American, the Fabrique Nationale [=FNS9=], the Walther PPQ, the H&K VP series, and [[UpToEleven more]].

** Motorsport is rife with this at the top levels. A skilled engineer/aerodynamicist develops a new device. Said device results in their car utterly destroying the rest of the field. Cue each other team developing/copying the new device, sometimes failing to get it to work, other times refining it. Assuming they aren't petitioning the governing body to ban it, if it isn't already. The list of examples could fill it's own page.

*** The success and popularity of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' inspired a number of imitators, making {{Gag Dub}}s for other popular series, such as ''WebVideo/{{Naruto|TheAbridgedSeries}}'', ''WebVideo/{{Avatar|TheAbridgedSeries}}'', ''{{Pokemon}}'', ''WebVideo/{{Sailor Moon|Abridged}}'', ''WebVideo/{{YuYu Hakusho|Abridged}}'', ''WebVideo/{{Higurashi|ParodyFanDub}}'', and ''WebVideo/{{Tokyo Mew Mew|InANutshell}}''. Out of all of TheAbridgedSeries on Website/YouTube or any other site, only a handful are actually worth watching. Related to that is the rise of the "[=MENT=]" style of abridging, which involves a ton of rapid-fire, non-sequitur humor, base off of the success of ''WebVideo/CodeMENT''.
