* During the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Creator/KingFeaturesSyndicate did several copycats of the Chicago Tribune strips:
** ''Little Annie Rooney'' was an ersatz of ''Comicstrip/LittleOrphanAnnie''.
** ''Dan Dunn'' was Hearst's answer to ''ComicStrip/DickTracy''.
** Another was ''The Nebbs'' (a copy of the Tribune's ''Gumps''), created by Sol Hess, who assisted Sidney Smith (creator of ''The Gumps'') during the early 1920s.
* ''Comicstrip/{{Doonesbury}}'': Uncle Duke was Garry S. Trudeau's tribute/homage to Raoul Duke, Hunter S. Thompson's alias. Thompson for two decades was so upset he refused to read the comic.
* ''The Adventures of Aaron'' once ran a strip with "The Ghost of Comicstrip/{{Calvin|AndHobbes}}". A couple footnotes make it clear: "Any similarities between Ghost of Calvin and ''Calvin and Hobbes'' is purely coincidental." See it [[http://www.kerzap.com/calvin/aaron.tribute.html here]].
* In ''Comicstrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'', it originally seemed as if the artist had intended to pair Liz of with her next door neighbor, Christopher; when he and his family were dropped from the strip, Mrs Johnston altered his serial number and created [[CreatorsPet Anthony Caine.]]
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Frazz}}'' by JefMallett, the title character, Frazz is a grown up expy of Calvin from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', both in personality and in artistic design; Mallett says that BillWatterson is a great influence, but that the similarities are unintentional. Nonetheless, it was blatant enough that rumors persisted that Watterson himself was writing a sequel strip under an assumed identity.

**3rd party Transformers, unofficial Transformers toys not made by ''Creator/{{Hasbro}}'' that barely skirt around IP infringement by giving them different names. (their appearance remains evocative of their official counterpart, however.) However, these aren't a case ShoddyKnockoffProduct or SerialNumbersFiledOff. 3rd party toys are engineered from the ground up, generally have no budget limitations, and are made by fans with the intent of creating toys of characters that Hasbro can't/won't make.

* In the 1960s, Jack Pfefer heavy use of this trope nearly killed off the Chicago territory when he was the promoter. He was largely responsible for launching the career of Wrestling/BuddyRogers, so dubbing a look alike Bummy Rogers was clearly his right. Everyone loves Wrestling/BoboBrazil? Love Hobo Brazil! Want to see Wrestling/BrunoSammartino? He's got Bruno Sanmartino.

* In the 1950s, Judy Glover was so popular that when Buddy Lee found a woman who looked like her, she was hired with the ring name Judy Grable on the hopes fans would think Grable ''was'' Glover...and it worked! Whether or not they were fooled, they liked Grable enough to not complain.

* Riley's [[ImaginaryFriend imaginary boyfriend]] in ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' is an Ersatz of ''Creator/JustinBieber'', right down to his appearance and the fact that [[GirlfriendInCanada he lives in Canada]]. This was apparently an artifact of an earlier draft, where there was a scene where Joy and Bing Bong would meet the actual Justin Bieber in a place called Boy Research.

* Further from ''D&D'', the displacer beast is a monster that is almost but not quite a direct rename of the couerl, an alien from A.E. van Vogt's science fiction (whose appearance in ''The Voyage of the Space Beagle'' also inspired ''Film/{{Alien}}'', to keep the borrowing going).

* A few in ''Film/SkyHigh2005'', but the most obvious is Layla, being similar to Franchise/{{Batman}}'s villainess Poison Ivy. She's a redhead, she controls plants, she always wears green, she's very environment friendly, etc. except she's a good gal. Many have pegged the movie to X-Men given that the plot of the movie centers on a superhero school.

* In the original books, the characters in ''Film/TheSnapper'' and ''The Van'' were the same family as in ''TheCommitments''. Due to Fox owning the rights to the Rabitte name, they were different characters. Especially glaring is the fact that Colm Meaney plays the father in both ''The Snapper'' and ''The Van'', but is ostensibly playing different characters.
* General Hager from ''Film/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer'' was originally supposed to be ComicBook/NickFury, but was changed to an original character when the director found out TwentiethCenturyFox didn't have his film rights. Not only does Hager have Fury's personality and ([[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]]) ethnicity, but some of his lines are taken word-for-word from Fury's dialogue in Creator/WarrenEllis' ''Ultimate ComicBook/{{Galactus}} Trilogy''.
* Chapel was replaced by a similar character named Jessica Priest in the live-action ''Film/{{Spawn}}'' movie. This is due to Chapel being owned by Creator/RobLiefeld, since he originated in ''ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}''.
