* Oancitizen of BrowsHeldHigh has often been accused of being a rip-off of WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob, despite the fact that Oancitizen reviews arthouse films without being snobbish while the Cinema Snob reviews exploitation movies while pretending to be a snobbish critic.

* In that vein, ''Website/TheAgonyBooth'' re-tailored their site in the early tens to emulate ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, supplementing their old text reviews with "prop comic" reviewers and videos. Most of these were received with lukewarm responses at best. The majority of the new critics were [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony Experiment]] knock-offs who used to advertise on his forum and on YouTube before being picked up. A similar website, Reviewtopia, was lambasted for trying to copy the success of TGWTG, and most of those critics were absorbed into the TGWTG mothership within a few months. The "success" of TheBlockbusterBuster and Oancitizen came about because of this.

* WebAnimation/ASDFMovie has had dozens of remakes in real life, LEGO, VideoGame/MineCraft, VideoGame/HappyWheels, VideoGame/ModernWarfare3, VideoGame/GarrysMod, Black Ops 2, SFM and so on. They all play the audio of one or more of the original videos over their own animation and meet varying success. There are also a dozen YouTube Poops and even fan made sequels.

WebVideo/CinemaSins has seen ''dozens'' of imitators on YouTube, from single videos to long-running channels reviewing different kinds of visual media. Two of the earliest examples---WebVideo/GameCareNetwork and WebVideo/{{Dartigan}}, both video game reviewers---now have their own pages.

* Reviews were commonplace, but WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic started the trend of [[PlayedForLaughs funny ones.]] They have since achieved online notoriety and several others attempting a style similar to them (i.e. that of a foul-mouthed and pissed off reviewer of old crappy games and/or films). It's worth noting that the Angry Video Game Nerd himself was far from being the first to do this. {{Seanbaby}} had done this years before (and was likely an inspiration) may not have been the first himself.

** The ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' review of ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-LfKbCR0MI Mickey Mousecapade]]'' has Arin noting how many reviewers out there try to emulate the nerd's style with varying (though usually low) levels of success. He spends the entire episode doing a [[StylisticSuck hilariously and intentionally bad]] imitation of the nerd while Danny pretty much spends the entire episode [[{{Corpsing}} in pain laughing]].

* LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} seems to follow the LetsPlay/PewDiePie formula of ADVERTISING VIDEOS IN ALL CAPS, photoshopped title cards, and OTT panicking at survival horror games. Over time, he's even adopted Pewd's charity work, haircut and five o'clock stubble, as well. Insanity.
