* When Disney was making ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' they managed to get [[Film/TheGodfather Don Vito Corleone]] in the film. Only it wasn't Corleone, it was an anthropomorphic shrew named [[MisterBig Mr. Big]]. But take it from us, it's Corleone in all but name.

* Similar to the above, the characters in ''{{Megamind}}'' represent various comic book heroes and villains, most notably from Franchise/{{Superman}}. [[TheCape Metro Man]] is Superman, [[MadScientist Megamind]] is a mixture of Brainiac and Lex Luthor, [[HotScoop Roxanne]] is Lois Lane, and Hal is an incarnation of Jimmy Olsen.

* And ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' went as far as to cast the actor who had played Nicholas Locarno in TNG's "The First Duty" before changing the character's name to Tom Paris and altering his backstory to be more sympathetic.
** Though WordOfGod has [[FlipFlopOfGod flip-flopped]] on whether this was done because Locarno was unrepentant and therefore unsympathetic, or because they didn't want to have to pay royalties to the writer of "The First Duty".
** There has been fanfiction written that attempts to reconcile this by making them the same person.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' and ''TabletopGame/ThirteenthAge'' could not get the rights to mind flayers from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' due to the terms of the Open Gaming License. ''Pathfinder'' used neothelids and intellect devourers (which were open content), and later the third-party phrenic slayers from Dreamscarred Press, to fill the role, while ''13th Age'' went with "soul flensers" instead.

* [=McDonald's=] "Changeables" Happy Meal toys were not Franchise/{{Transformers}}. They did not transform -- they ''changed''.
* Stree Overlord is an herbal supplement with a naked Ryu pleasuring a fully dressed Chun-li on the cover, though it is not about ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. The backstory has The Overlords practicing the secret Fierce Intensity technique in pre-Shogun Japan before handing down the technique to the young Overlord Stree.
* Zany Raisins were Kellogg's answer to The California Raisins.
