* ''Film/{{Speed}}'' is often touted as "''Die Hard'' on a bus" despite not being exactly that. It does involve crawling through elevator shafts, the undercarriage of a bus and on top of a speeding subway train (hence making it become ''Die Hard'' on BOTH a bus and a train). However, it appears ''Speed'' was mainly inspired by ''The Bullet Train''. ''Film/{{Ticker}}'', ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'', ''Dead in a Heartbeat'', ''Knock Off'', ''Film/{{Crank}}'', ''Film/CrankHighVoltage'', ''Film/{{SWAT}}'' (the 2003 movie not the TV show) and the unrelated sequel ''S.W.A.T.: Firefight'' end up ripping off this mad bomber/criminal mastermind vs. police officers routine as well.

Named after a meme within the entertainment industry based on the [[Film/DieHard movie of the same name]], starring Creator/BruceWillis. One of the most important action films of all time, if [[FollowTheLeader all the copycat ripoffs]] are any indication. An old story says that the HighConcept pitches for many action films basically went "[[XMeetsY Die Hard on a...]]", until one day, someone tried to pitch a movie as "''Die Hard'' in an Office Building." Apparently, they [[CriticalResearchFailure were unaware]] that the original ''Die Hard '''did''''' take place in an office building.

* ''Film/TheExpendables'' films always end with ''Die Hard'' moments while also referencing other 80s movies. The first film is ''Die Hard'' in a South American fortress, the second film takes a que from ''Film/DieHard2'' by having the mercs battle terrorists at an airport and the third movie is ''Die Hard'' in a building with bombs inside and surrounded by tanks and other helicopters. Yes, you read that right.
