** ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': This game (and its sequels) owes its existence due to [[PortingDisaster complaints of Amiga owners in regard to the first port]] of the original Street Fighter II. Commodore, the company that owned the Amiga brand of computers, decided that rather than going through the hassle of reattempting a better version of that game, they would contract British based developer Team17 to create their own equivalent fighting game for their own systems.

* {{Metallica}} 's "The Mechanix" (from when Dave Mustaine was in the group) got rewritten as "The Four Horsemen", whilst Mustaine's group {{Megadeth}} recorded "The Mechanix" at a faster tempo with a new intro. The similarities didn't stop there - the Mustaine era Metallica's "When Hell Freezes Over" was reworked into "The Call Of Ktulu" by Metallica, and later "Hangar 18" by Megadeth. Metallica's "Motorbreath" had very similar riffs to Megadeth's later "FFF". Megadeth's "Go To Hell" and Metallica's "Enter Sandman" both quote "now I lay me down to sleep". Megadeth's "When" is also based on Mustaine era Metallica's arrangement of DiamondHead 's "Am I Evil?". There are numerous other examples, though Metallica took inspiration from Megadeth's return to thrash form since the critical failure of "St Anger" compared to Megadeth's "The System Has Failed".
