* The 2011 adaptation of ''Anime/HunterxHunter'' includes a few, but most especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cp8kcoYXFM8 Rhapsody on the Theme of Holst]], which directly takes from Holst's Jupiter for an uncommonly apropos moment.

*** ''High Charity: Pursuit of Truth'' is a pastiche of the song "Leela" from the original ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' and ''CE''[='s=] ''[=TGPatHofU=]'', and it pays homage to Music/{{Kraftwerk}}'s ''Music/TheManMachine'' album as well, possibly sampling them (eg the beat and the characteristic "twang" sound effect).

** VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'': ''Farthest Outpost'' is a pastiche of the [[{{Leitmotif}} Ark theme]] and ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}''[='s=] ''In Amber Clad'' (which in turn is loosely based on ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved''[='s=] ''Under Cover of Night''). ''Halo 2'' themes ''The Last Spartan'' are ''Unyielding'' combined into ''Finish The Fight'', with the intro also containing a pastiche of ''2''[='s=] ''High Charity''. ''CE'' themes ''Under Cover of Night'' and ''Perchance to Dream'' become ''Dream Again''. During the credits, ''Farthest Outpost'', ''Under Cover'', and the guitar riff of ''In Amber Clad'' are all mixed together.

* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' trilogy does this with many of its music pieces, using the same instrumentation, rhythm, sometimes chords, on different melodies, eg the Delta Halo {{leitmotif}} in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' is a pastiche of the series' [[RecurringRiff main theme]], ''Leonidas'' is a pastiche of ''On a Pale Horse'', ''Impend'' is a pastiche of ''The Gun Pointed at the Head of the Universe'', and ''Farthest Outpost'' is a pastiche of the [[{{Leitmotif}} Ark theme]] and ''In Amber Clad'' , which in turn is loosely based on ''Under Cover of Night''.
** ''The Last Spartan'' + ''Unyielding'' = ''Finish The Fight''. The intro of the song also contains a pastiche of ''High Charity''.
** "Peril" mixes together the rhythm of "Perilous Journey" and the melodies of "The Last Spartan", "High Charity", and the Delta Halo theme.
** The first part of ''Heretic', Hero'' combines the melodies of the ''Truth and Reconciliation Suite'' intro and ''TGPATHOTU''. In turn, the Delta Halo theme is used on top of the ''Heretic'' beat in the beginning of the ''Delta Halo Suite''.
** "High Charity: Pursuit of Truth" is a pastiche of of the song "Leela" from the original ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' and "The Gun Pointed at the Head of the Universe", and it pays homage to Music/{{Kraftwerk}}'s ''Music/TheManMachine'' album as well, possibly sampling them (eg the beat and the characteristic "twang" sound effect).

** "Respite"(and the second half of "Tribute") is "High Charity" done in the style of the Arbiter's {{leitmotif}}.
** "Unreconciled" is a combination of "Lone Wolf" and the original ''Halo'' theme. "Hymn for Reach" and "The Fall" sound similar to "Respite/Tribute" and "Enough/No More Dead Heroes", respectively. "The Battle Begins" is a pastiche of the main theme and the rhythm of "Ghosts of Reach" from ''Halo 2''. The In "Amber Clad" beat also returns, in "Sword Control" and "We Remember". The main theme itself sounds like a tweaked version of "Farthest Outpost" from ''Halo 3''. A warped version of the Gregorian chant is also used several times.
** "Librarian's Gift" from the ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}} Anniversary'' soundtrack is a pastiche of the Library Suite from ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' using ''Halo 2'''s ambience tracks.
