* When Sony unveiled the UsefulNotes/PlayStation 3's controller prototype back in 2005, people scoffed at the weird Boomerang shape, calling it uncomfortable. Sony apparently didn't get the memo that Apple actually used a similar controller design for the ''UsefulNotes/{{Pippin}}'', which received equally negative criticism for the controller a whole decade before, although that wasn't said console's only problem.

* When developing the Vulcan Cannon, a [[GatlingGood Gatling-style]] 20mm cannon, the engineers decided to test the concept by pulling an original Gatling Gun from a museum and hooking it up to an electric motor (it worked quite well, being much faster than hand cranking). As it happens, Gatling himself had worked with the idea in his own time, [[http://www.popularmechanics.com/military/a22451/history-gatling-gun/ receiving a patent for an electric-powered Gatling Gun in 1893]]. Ultimately, it would prove AwesomeButImpractical compared to other automatic weapons available at the time.

* Meta-example with a theory of physics in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. In one chapter (which you might remember for the "bazinga" scene at the ball pool), Sheldon's been trying to figure out why the electrons in a carbon atom act that way, to no avail, until he comes to realize that the electrons are behaving like waves. Which was something [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave%E2%80%93particle_duality first proposed in 1924.]] Of course, due to the practical impossibility of developing a brand new physics theory by the writers of a series that tries to stay close to science, you could say it's meta-justified.

Compare ItWillNeverCatchOn and WeHaveThoseToo. TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples explains how Shakespeare did it before. YesWeDoHaveThisOne is this happening for creating [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/tlp_activity.php TLP]]. For how the hearts of budding artists may be quickly crushed, see TVTropesWillRuinYourLife.

* In March 1951, an [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUS American]] and a [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUK British]] cartoonist both came up with the idea of a comic strip called "Dennis The Menace". In some newspapers, they even debuted on the exact same day!

* On ''Series/GLOW2017'' director Sam is only doing this 1985 wrestling show so he can earn the money to make the movie he's been working on for over a decade. Talking to guys at a party, Sam is excited as he talks about his genius plot of a teenager accidentally going back in time and meeting his mother when she was a hot teen herself and having to avoid her advances. Poor Sam is crushed when the guests inform him that they all just saw a brand new movie using that exact plot: ''Film/BackToTheFuture.''
