* ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' OAV #6 has a scene with Yuri and her mob-scion/fiance-for-an-episode running along the beach in the setting sun, tripping and rolling/falling and finally kissing. It looks like a commercial, and it is, sort of. Yuri and Beau are directly re-creating a lipstick commercial from an old ''UruseiYatsura'' episode. Only the commercial famously cut out right before the kiss.

* First page of ''SamuraiDeeperKyo'' seems to be going for this general effect vis-a-vis the first page of ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', not in doing the exact same thing visually but in doing close to the same thing, period, with a different era and a different made-up swordsman. See the SDK page for ridiculously intricate details.

** An example of one with a hidden meaning is the homage shot to ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'', in which Snake's [[InvisibilityCloak stealth camo]] is shown glitching out, giving the impression of him materialising out of thin air in the same manner as the time jump effect from the film. WordOfGod explains that this is intended as {{Foreshadowing}} of how Snake's role has been significantly altered in ''2'' from being the main character to being TheObiWan for the real main character, just like how at the beginning of ''Terminator 2'' we assume that the Terminator is the BigBad just because he'd been that in the first film, when he's really TheHero.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Film/StarWars Star Wars Episode IV:]]'' ''Film/ANewHope'': The trench run scene in the climax is heavily inspired by the ''Film/TheDambusters''.

Added DiffLines:

* Episode 11 of ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' features several shots that are homages to the ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' movie ''Beautiful Dreamer''; this is because Mahiro, much like the ''UY'' cast, has been traped in a GroundhogDayLoop-ing dream world.

** His longest sequence of homage shots comes in the opening scene of ''SavingPrivateRyan''. As the rangers hit the beach, Spielberg slips in bits from war movies that have come before (this case might count as PinkBunnySlippers). After Tom Hanks falls into the water, we have a shot of bullets making water trails round floating bodies that looks like a scene from Peter Weir's ''Film/{{Gallipoli}}''. As the troops crawl along the beach, we see a medic checking a wounded soldier and discovering that he's been completely eviscerated. The wounds and the pose are straight out of ''Film/CatchTwentyTwo''. Lastly, we catch a glimpse of a wounded man holding his own severed arm, a twin of a shot from Kurosawa's ''Film/{{Ran}}''.

** Creator/PeterJackson shot one bit at Bilbo's birthday party in ''Fellowship of the Ring'' ("Proudfeet!") as an exact copy of a shot in Creator/RalphBakshi's animated ''WesternAnimation/TheLordOfTheRings.'' Jackson even helpfully points this out in the commentary. A circle-round shot of the four hobbits at Weathertop is also lifted from the original, although the camera moves much faster and Aragorn is absent. And the hobbits hiding in the crotch of a tree from the Nazgûl? Also from the Bakshi version. (It's the last shot you'd expect, isn't it?)

** Another ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' example: Saruman (through a possessed King Théoden) telling Gandalf that "You have no power here!", a line for line echo of what Glinda says to the Wicked Witch of the West.

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'': Gore Verbinski stuck in a virtually identical shot of Orlando Bloom in Tortuga echoing one he did in the 1st ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' film in Lothlórien: in both cases Bloom reacts to an offscreen comment or activity with a concerned look as he turns his head.

* In ''[[ComicBook/AthenaVoltaire Athena Voltaire and the Feathered Serpent]]'', Athena escapes pursuit by swinging out on a vine, dropping into the water, and swimming out to her float plane. This is probably a homage to a scene in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', since Athena Voltaire has no shortage of comparison points to Franchise/IndianaJones, and nods have been made by the author outside the comics proper).

* ''TheSimpsons'' does this all the time, mostly for the sake of parody. The scene where Homer bites into a "Ribwich" for the first time, and his pupils dilate and we have sudden shots of the food travelling down his gullet, is a pitch-perfect recreation of a scene from ''RequiemForADream''.
