** This is most prominent in the late '70s and early '80s between ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''Series/BlakesSeven'', where the shows shared an excessive amount of props and costumes. Romana I and Servalan wore the same white feather cloak, the guards in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E3Frontios Frontios]]" wore the Federation guards' helmets from B7 and certain idiosyncratic wall panels show up ''all the time''. Of course, the series shared writers and producers as well and Creator/TerryNation even planned a real crossover at one point. The most controversial example of this was the use of a ''Doctor Who'' Sea Devil costume for the monster in the ''Blake's 7'' fourth season opening episode "Rescue". The ''Doctor Who'' team at the time were reportedly extremely angry that no permission had been requested (and also wouldn't have granted it).

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E6TheVampiresOfVenice "The Vampires of Venice"]], Amy is strapped into the Cyberking's throne from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E14TheNextDoctor "The Next Doctor"]].



*** The levers that seal the doors in the escape pod from the ''Alaska'' was first seen in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia "Utopia"]], when the Master shuts down the bunker's defences.



*** It makes a reappearance in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E2TheWitchsFamiliar "The Witch's Familiar"]], along with many other classic series Daleks.

** Additionally, movie-exclusive Villain Riders from the Heisei era (2000 onwards) tend to use modified versions of the hero Rider's costume and gear. It's easiest to spot with ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'', simply because it's had so many movies: Gaoh, Yu-Ki, and G Den-O all use modified Den-O suits, but the most obvious is Nega Den-O, whose suit is literally just Den-O's Sword Form with purple armor instead of red and blue, flame-like decals applied to it.

*** The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolitan_Area_Outer_Underground_Discharge_Channel Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel]] has appeared prominently a few times, including Series/KamenRiderDecade's [[TimeStandsStill high-speed]] battle with [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto TheBee]], the music video for ''Series/KamenRiderDouble''[='s=] movie's theme song, and as part of the spaceship XV-Two in ''Series/KamenRiderFourze''[='s=] movie.

It's easiest to spot with ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'', simply because it's had so many movies: Gaoh, Yu-Ki, Yu-Ki[[note]]Technically Yu-Ki is a remodel of Gaoh; it seems Toei modified the last/only Gaoh costume they had, which is why he's never appeared since[[/note]], and G Den-O all use modified Den-O suits, but the most obvious is Nega Den-O, whose suit is literally just Den-O's Sword Form with purple armor instead of red and blue, flame-like decals applied to it.



** Besides villains, movie-exclusive Rider suits are more often than not repaints/modifications to existing suits. ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' does this in spades, as all three of his movies feature forms that are modified from his standard All Dragon Style (two of them also being modifications of his ultimate form, Infinity Style).



** The Zectrooper uniforms from ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'' have been reused in bulk, likely because Toei just has ''so many'' of them. ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' used them for the three Leo Soldiers, ''Series/KamenRiderW'' used them for the Commander Dopant's {{Mooks}}, and ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' is set to reuse them as Megahex's minions.

** In ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'', the rusted sword that becomes Kamen Rider Brave's Gashacon Sword is a modified version of [[Series/KamenRiderKuuga Kuuga]]'s Titan Sword.

* The folks at Creator/{{Pixar}} are fond of reusing props, sets, even whole characters from their previous movies ([[EarlyBirdCameo and even from their upcoming ones]]), usually as a ShoutOut, as well as for practical measures. The most famous example is the Pizza Planet delivery truck from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', which has found its way into almost every film. Other popular props include the yellow ball with the blue stripe and red star from ''WesternAnimation/Luxo Jr'', as well as both Luxo lamps from the same short.

** Sometimes props are recycled as [[WriterRevolt a nod to the attraction before it.]] For instance, one of the aliens in the pre-show at ''Stitch's Great Escape'' was Skippy, who was in the pre-show of ''Alien Encounter''. ''Stitch's Great Escape'' itself reuses many components from ''Alien Encounter'' -- it's basically the former attraction with Stitch as a more child-friendly substitute for the alien.
** The ''Twilight Zone Ride'' [[ContinuityPorn is filled to the brim with props from the original show.]]
* Many rollercoasters at the Ride/SixFlags theme parks often get re-themed, with repaints of the tracks and/or cars. For example, ''Poison Ivy's Tangled Train'' at Six Flags New England got re-themed and re-painted to become ''Catwoman's Whip''.

* The gate featured in the original ''Film/{{King Kong|1933}}'' saw multiple uses in other movies, ultimately being used as kindling in burning of Atlanta scene in ''Film/GoneWithTheWind''. (It was the burning wall that narrowly avoided crushing Rhett and Scarlett in a passing wagon)



* After ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'' almost bankrupted the studios where it was filmed, the costumes and props were re-used for a not-very-good film of ''Film/PrideAndPrejudice''. Never mind the fact that the two novels are set about 70 years apart (one circa 1790s, one in the 1860s and 70s) and the fashions were radically different, it was all the olden days, wasn't it?

to:

* As mentioned above, the Burning of Atlanta in ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'' was actually the Burning of Many Old Set Pieces on the Backlot that were due to be demolished anyway.
