* The modern Macy's, Inc. is made of this trope, many times over. TheOtherWiki lists 31 department store chains that were renamed Macy's...that doesn't count the stores that ''those'' chains had previously taken over (including historical rival Gimbels.) Many of them were beloved regional stores like Filene's, Rich's, Foley's and Burdines; many Marshall Field's customers still haven't gotten over it. It's even more complicated than that. The May Company merged with Federated, which then renamed the more lucrative May stores into the more well-known Kaufmanns. Federated then bought Macys and decided to take the now-Kaufmanns that were at this point more lucrative but less well known than Macys and rename them into Macys.

* "Samsony" (Samsung Sony) from ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. Sergeant Schlock's drug of choice being a powdery substance named Ovalqwik, one can infer that the brands Ovomaltine (Ovaltine in the US) and Nestle's Quik have also become a single entity. There was also a reference to playing "[[Franchise/{{Halo}} Master Chief]] [[SuperMarioBros Mario]]" on a "[[UsefulNotes/NintendoWii Wii]][[UsefulNotes/XBoxThreeSixty Box]]".
