* The 102nd episode of ''[[VideoGame/PriPara [=PriPara=]]]'' has the same plot as the 31st episode of ''Anime/YoKaiWatch'': both episodes involved characters taking part in the filming of a movie and playing roles they do not think suit them, causing things to go wrong with the production.

Added DiffLines:

* The Phantom Lord arc of ''Manga/FairyTail'' featured the then-current antagonist guild attempting to use a lacrima-powered WaveMotionGun to destroy Fairy Tail. This was recycled in the Oracion Seis arc, where the villain attempted to use a similar weapon to destroy the Cait Shelter guild hall.

* Subtly parodied in a filler arc of OnePiece. An early filler has the crew meet a little girl being pursued by corrupt forces and trying to find a legendary land. The villain was a wimp who couldn't challenge the Straw Hats directly and instead relied on tricks and traps. The earlier arc dragged out over eight episodes. In the more recent arc, with notable resolve not to go through this again, Luffy and friends just decided to [[DungeonBypass smash everything in sight]]. This resolved it in two episodes.

** ''[[[[Anime/BleachFadeToBlack Fade to Black]]'' intentionally recycles old plots to play with the characters' memories. On the other hand the villains have Aaroniero Arruruerie and Kaien's recycled background, complete with Rukia guilt, but are not supposed to remind anybody.

* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks''' "The Brunch Club" and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'''s "Hey You, Don't Forget About Me In Your Memory" both spoof ''Film/TheBreakfastClub'', have the characters get in trouble for something they did on accident and wondering what they could have done to prevent it from happening, and replace Music/SimpleMinds' "Don't You (Forget About Me)" with an original song unlike most homages to the film. ("What Were You Doing At The Time?" for ''Alvin'' and "Crane Kick" for ''Titans'').

** "Fear of a Krabby Patty" partially recycles its plot from the episode "Graveyard Shift". Both episodes involve Mr. Krabs changing the Krusty Krab's business hours to run for 24 hours a day despite not having the staff necessary to do so, but for different reasons; in "Graveyard Shift" it's because he's discovered that he can get more customers if the Krusty Krab was always open, and in "Fear of a Krabby Patty" it's to spite Plankton after he opens the Chum Bucket for 23 hours (setting his plan for the episode into motion). The main difference is that in "Graveyard Shift" we only see the Krusty Krab open for one night shift and in "Fear of a Krabby Patty" we see it open for 43 days straight.

** The Monster Blood sub-series mostly avoided this to a degree.
** As well as Deep Trouble II, and Return to Ghost Camp...largely because they didn't have a damn thing to do with their respective originals.

this, using the titular substance's properties (a non-tech version of GreyGoo and [[MakeMyMonsterGrow making things grow]] in different ways.
** As well as Deep Trouble II, and Return to Ghost Camp...largely because they didn't have Camp. The former had the same main characters and was still set on a damn thing boat, but had a very different plot; the latter, meanwhile, [[DolledUpInstallment had nothing to do with their respective originals.the original]], save for also involving a haunted camp.

* The ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' episode "Sonic is Running" and ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' episode "Princess Toadstool For President" (both Creator/DiCEntertainment cartoons produced around the same time) both involve one of one of the main characters running for president against the BigBad of the series. In the end, the hero wins in a landslide victory, and it's revealed that the villainous character received only one vote (his own) because even his two flunkies voted against him.

* Though entire plots being recycled is rare, ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' loves to recycle specific elements. For instance, "villains attempt to steal the souls of hundreds or thousands of people, typically as a ritual to unlock some kind of greater power or SealedEvilInACan, picking off the supporting cast one by one before the main character defeats the villain [[SnapBack and everyone is restored to life]]" is a plot point that recurs many times, starting with the Doma arc of the original series and continuing with the Supreme King and Darkness arcs of ''GX'', the Dark Signers arc of ''5D's'', the Barian Emperor Onslaught arc of ''ZEXAL'', and the entire run of ''ARC-V''. The "Ceremonial Duel" plot (at the end of the series, after the BigBad has been defeated, the protagonist faces a character who's not evil, but whose defeat is intended to be important for CharacterDevelopment) has also recurred in every series to date, though the circumstances vary heavily.
