* 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 (ComicBook/{{Ultimate|Marvel}}) ethnicity, but some of his lines are taken word-for-word from Fury's dialogue in Creator/WarrenEllis' ''Ultimate ComicBook/{{Galactus}} Trilogy''.

* Theater/HalloweenHorrorNights: In the past and to this day, Universal tends to sneak certain [=IPs=] into the event by referring to them as something more generic. For instance; in 2003, before the event actually featured them for real, Universal had Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, and Michael Myers together in a house called ''All Nite Die-In'' by having the casting sheets refer to Freddy as "Nightmare Man", Jason as "Hockey Mask Killer", Leatherface as "Chainsaw Cannibal", and so on. This method has not always worked, however; as in 2006 Universal apparently got in trouble with the copyright holders of ''Literature/TheRing'' for sneaking a scene of the movie into the ''All Nite Die-In Take Two'' house from that year.

** Japanese recolors of Convoy (Optimus Prime) are sometimes called Ginrai, a completely different character.

** Japanese recolors of Convoy (Optimus Prime) are sometimes called Ginrai, a completely different character. This is not sarcasm as Ginrai is, in fact, [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Ginrai_(robot) his own Autobot]] much like how the Seekers Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp are different.

** It's also notable that ''The Incredibles'' successfully captures the "superhero team as a family" dynamic that the Fantastic Four is best-known for in the comics, which three live-acton attempts (thus far) by 20th Century Fox and Marvel have failed to fully accomplish.
