* Similar to the ''Zelda'' example above, ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' fans wanted a classic (1-6) style game with the technology of the PS1 era game. What they got was ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', which they complained about being too much like the classic games. Then they got ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', which they complained was too much like the modern (7-8) games.

** BatmanArkhamKnight is also accused of this, as some feel that the gameplay is too similar to the previous games. On the other hand, people have complained about more or less every change by this point (Batmobile, Fear takedowns, throw counters etc.) so it crosses over with TheyChangedItNowItSucks and HypocriticalFandom.

To a lesser extent this has started applying to the entire MarvelCinematicUniverse, with many stating that the movies have begun to feel increasingly formulaic.

* ''{{Crackdown}} 2'' takes place in an identical environment to the original--they literally copy and pasted most of the city, and in many ways it lacks the charm of the original, even with the nightly ZombieApocalypse that occurs. Many were not pleased at how little was new.
* One of the ''in-game'' problems of ''HeavyWeapon''. After going through the first nine levels and defeating the first nine bosses, you are treated to a YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle scene. After that, you have to go through the first nine levels with harder enemies and defeat the first nine bosses '''again''', except that most of them are just rehashes with more health and faster speed.

* ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'' got some of this, with many people complaining that it felt like Camelot stapled the first two games together, without any of their original charm.

* While the film was undeniably a very concentrated effort to WinBackTheCrowd, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' receives the bulk of its criticism from those who say it swung too far away from the prequel trilogy, becoming an overly safe reimagining of ''Film/ANewHope''. There are several thematic and story parallels between the two movies and the criticism is that it did not try to find its own voice in the franchise, instead pandering heavily towards those looking for nostalgia.

From the perspective of some film critics, this is considered "playing it safe" in order to pander to both hardcore OT fans for nostalgia as well as non-fans of which the most recognizable works from those who say it swung too far away from Star Wars are OT. For rest of Star Wars fandom copying A New Hope is considered to be the prequel trilogy, becoming an overly safe reimagining biggest in the list of ''Film/ANewHope''. There things the film copied among which are several thematic and story parallels between elements of the two movies and the criticism is very Expanded Universe that it did not try to find its own voice in the franchise, instead pandering heavily towards those looking for nostalgia.ignored.

* While the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' spinoff series ''WesternAinimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' is usually well regarded among a majority of the franchise's fanbase, there is a vocal minority of people who didn't like it with this trope being the main reason by inheriting a lot of the problems from the later seasons of the original series. Said problems include characters behaving inconsistently from episode to episode, [[ArcFatigue plots bring dragged out too long]] (usually of [[RomanticPlotTumor the romantic kind]]), a good number of the show's cast either being [[FlatCharacter underdeveloped]] or unlikable, and episodes [[AssPull randomly being a non-elimination round]] depending on the team that happens to come in last place.

** While the gameplay was a welcome change from ''Persona 3,'' the story and characters of ''Persona 4'' were accused of being too similar to its predecessor.

* Before it became a long-loved classic of 64-bit gaming, ''BanjoKazooie'' was accused of being a ''Mario'' clone simply because it was a 3D platforming game.
