** In ''TheBigBangTheory'', Raj Koothrapali echoes this character when he maintains Sherlock Holmes is really Indian and Arthur Conan-Doyle merely copied an Indian literary character, a polymath intellectual who solved crimes for a hobby.

** Another ''DS9'' example: In the episode "Tacking into the Wind", Worf quotes, "Great men do not seek power; they have power thrust upon them." - which sounds like a reference to ''Theatre/TwelfthNight'', but is actually attributed to the Klingon mytho-historical emperor Kahless, predating the Bard by some 700 years.

** The phenomenon goes beyond KJV and the US Protestants. There is at least one American Catholic priest who said, "As Jesus originally said in Latin."

** G'Kar mentions that the humans have a saying, "Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer." He then plays the trope straight by saying that they probably stole it from the Narn. Justified: it's heavily implied (and in one case, outright stated) that other alien races had been altering aspects of Narn culture to suit their plans, G'Kar has no hard evidence that it didn't originate with his people. The few humans he knows, however, do not seem to fit this philosophy, but it fits his own remarkably well.

* In ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', The Party would have the public believe that Big Brother is personally responsible for every major technological development of the past century. As time goes on, they have him take credit for more and more of the past. (The protagonist learned in school that Big Brother invented the helicopter. His considerably younger girlfriend learned that he also invented the airplane. The protagonist suspects that in ten to twenty years children will learn that he also invented the steam locomotive.)

** Similarly, every impressive building is held to either have been built by the Party after the Revolution, or--if that's too implausible--to date from the vaguely-defined "middle ages". The capitalist era is held to have produced nothing of value.
