* The American company Nestle released the "Wonder Ball" (originally the "Magic Ball") in 1990. They are chocolate balls with stickers, small toys, and later hard candy inside. This makes it similar to the 1970's Italian "Kinder Surprise" candy. America banned the Kinder Surprise in 1997, however Wonder Ball's lasted until 2007. They were later brought back in 2016.

** ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}''[='s=] Asuka Kazama and her rival Emilie "Lili" de Rochefort draw frequent comparisons to the above Sakura and ''her'' rival from ''Street Fighter Alpha 3'', Karin Kanzuki. Because both rivalries involve two aspirant street fighters who happen to be high school students, with the second party being [[PrivilegedRival a wealthy heiress]] who loses to the first and obsesses over settling the score, [[DefeatMeansFriendship only to come to value the other girl's friendship]] (although Asuka and Lili are currently at the VitriolicBestBuds stage, with some [[FoeRomanceSubtext additional]] [[HomoeroticSubtext subtext]] on Lili's part), several fans feel it's more than a coincidence. If Sakura defeats Lili in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', her win quote even {{lampshade|Hanging}}s the similarities between Lili and Karin.

** In Latin America, however, there's an averted example: ''Digimon'' and '' Pokémon'' [[FollowTheLeader used to be broadcast in those respective channels]], until 2014, when ''Anime/DigimonFusion'' aired on Cartoon Network alongside some seasons of ''Pokémon''. As of 2017, ''Pokémon'' still airs on Cartoon Network in that region, but none ''Digimon'' anime is currently airing in any channel. At least, there's ''Anime/YoKaiWatch'' airing on Disney XD [[FollowTheLeader also like it happens in North America]].

* Anime/SuperSonico of Creator/NitroPlus came to be seen as one for {{Vocaloid}} centerpiece Hatsune Miku in the virtual idol department, with the former debuting one year earlier. While they both get the bulk of figurines and other merch, Sonico serves as both a gravure idol and a GirlGroup member while Miku tends to be a solo act.
