* In the late 50's and early 60's, CarlBarks recycled a couple of his own scripts from the late 40's with various changes, like making a ''DonaldDuck'' story into a ''[[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]]'' one, figuring that no one would remember the old, long out of print comics. When older fans noticed it, Barks expressed shame in letters and interviews, feeling like he had been caught doing something wrong, despite that the fans simply thought it was a fun little trivia and liked both the new and old stories.

** One Sinnoh episode has James pretending to be Jessie and entering a contest because Jessie was too sick to do so. Years later, a Kalos episode has Serena pretending to be Ash and battling with a trainer because Ash is too sick to do so.



** Not many people realize the acclaimed, highly publicized "Archie genderswap" issue had been done nearly fifty years earlier. The plot was even the same: The girls and boys get into an argument over which gender has it worse and get genderswapped.

Added DiffLines:

** The crossover with ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has a similar plot to "Members Only". An older group of superheroes acts condescending towards the Powerpuff Girls, though in this case it's due to their age rather than gender. It also has elements of ''The Powerpuff Girls Movie'' with Mojo Jojo commanding an army of simians.

* ''RedMeat'' re-used the exact same script a few times, with only the graphics slightly changed.

* The PlotTwist in Creator/AgathaChristie's ''Literature/TowardsZero'' and ''Literature/LordEdgwareDies'', in many respects, mirrors ''Literature/TheMysteriousAffairAtStyles''. In the three novels, the murder case seem really straight forward, with only one plausible suspect that has a bunch of evidences against them. However, they are revealed to have a solid alibi during the time of the murder, and were cleared of the charges. [[spoiler:In both cases, the initial prime suspect was actually the murderer after all, having [[FramingTheGuiltyParty deliberately planted evidence against himself that can be easily proven false]]]].

Added DiffLines:

** Both ''Icerigger'' and ''For Love Of Mother-Not'' feature outnumbered heroes using the same gimmick to destroy an overwhelming enemy force: [[spoiler: creating a smell that attracts an unstoppable herd of giant-sized alien herbivores to trample the enemy en masse]].

* The PlotTwist in Creator/AgathaChristie's ''Literature/TowardsZero'', in many respects, mirrors ''Literature/TheMysteriousAffairAtStyles''. A wealthy old widow is murdered, likely for her inheritance. The case seem straightforward, and the obvious evidences point to a man who was heard arguing with the victim before her death. However, he is revealed to have a solid alibi during the time of the murder, and he was cleared of the charges. [[spoiler:In both cases, the initial prime suspect was actually the murderer after all, having [[FramingTheGuiltyParty deliberately planted evidence against himself that can be easily proven false]]]].

** The episode "What's The Big Idea" borrows a similar premise to ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' episode "Too Tall Tails", in that the villain grows one of the main characters (in The Powerpuff Girls' case, the whole trio) to gigantic size so that they cause more harm to a city than good.

* 24 scripts on ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' were recycled scene by scene. One was recycled ''twice''. Most of these were episodes featuring the first Darrin that were recycled with TheOtherDarrin. Since some were two-parters, this means a total of 55 of the 254 episodes, 22% of the entire show, weren't unique. In addition to these completely recycled scripts, there were also many that had similar premises but were different in the particulars, and many individual scenes and gags that were recycled in otherwise original episodes.
** Some of the black and white episodes were redone after the show went to color.

* Averted with extreme prejudice by ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' and ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'', none of which recycled an earlier comic. (Though ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' twice used the joke about the 1812 Overture firing cannons in a crowded music hall. The repetition was presumably inadvertent.)



* In Fanfic/HalfLifeFullLifeConsequences, John Freeman receives a call from his brother to help him kill aliens and monsters, and goes out to do so on his motorcycle, killing "[[DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment zombie goasts]]", and eventually defeating the last boss, only to see Gordon Freeman killed before his eyes. In What Has Tobe Done, John Freeman sets out on his faster motorcycle, kills more zombie goasts and kills the boss that killed Gordon Freeman, only for Gordon Freeman to rise as a headcrab-infected zombie goast.
