* The multiwheeled Landmaster vehicle from ''Film/DamnationAlley'' reappeared in various movies and TV episodes, including as the "Ark" in Filmation's live-action kids show ''Ark II''. (It almost had a better career than the human star Jan-Michael Vincent.)

* ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfCaptainScarlet'' carries on the fine old Gerry Anderson tradition by having the futuristic-looking truck from the pilot episode show up in the background whenever named characters were driving on a freeway. There were also no less than three separate episodes whose plot involved a massive Russian super-tank, also from the pilot, being used to blow something up.

** 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'' reused them as Megahex's minions.

*** ''Ex-Aid'' has a few more obvious examples. The BigBad Kamen Rider Chronus' costume was made from Ex-Aid's Series/KamenRiderWizard form (made obvious by the fact that it has Wizard's BadassLongcoat). Meanwhile, ''Series/KamenRider555''[='s=] Riotroopers had their {{Swiss Army Weapon}}s repainted for use by ''Series/KamenRiderGhost''[='s=] Ganma, and then they were repainted again to be wielded by ''Ex-Aid''[='s=] Ride-Players.

** In "The Androids of Tara", the faceless android is based on the robot head used for the Sarah Jane robot in "The Android Invasion", a story that was only a couple of years old at that point.

* Ride/UniversalStudios Hollywood was built on this trope -- the ThemePark was originally created to allow visitors to see the actual sets and filming used by the studio. Nowadays, the rides get more attention, and the tram tours avoid areas with actual filming, but the sets themselves are still frequently used. People familiar with the Tram Tour are able to recognize [[Film/BackToTheFuture Courthouse Square]], [[Series/DesperateHousewives Wisteria Lane]], and other parts of the studio when they appear in movies and TV shows.

** 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?

* [[https://www.modernprops.com/Details1b.asp?dept=195&category=290&item=1 This thing.]] No telling what it does, but it's shown up in ''Series/{{V}}'', ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'', ''Series/KnightRider'', ''Film/AirplaneIITheSequel'', ''Film/AlienNation'', ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'', ''Film/TheLastStarfighter'', and several ''Star Trek'' series -- just to name a few. Once you see it, you can never ''stop'' seeing it in the background. It's like the Wilhelm scream of props.

* The Golden Pontiac from ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Series/Lost Lost]]'' was used in four episodes and everytime involved in car crashes. It became so famous that Lostpedia even gave the car its own [[http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Golden_Pontiac page]]. Fans started to speculate about this car and going by the mysterious approach of the series the believed that this car was also exactly the same in terms of story. However as the accidents happened in three different US states (Iowa, California and New York) it was deemed to be either supernatural or just prop recycling. It was confirmed in an interview with Damon Lindelof on September 21, 2005 that the same prop car was used for all four accidents.
