** "The Crystalling" involves the birth of Shining Armor and Princess Cadence's baby Flurry Heart. Upon birth, she involuntarily uses her magic. That aspect is similar to [[WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents "Fairly Odd Baby"]], in which the newborn Poof has no control over his magic. [[spoiler:Coincidentally, the baby's cry causes something bad to happen, although Flurry Heart's crying was accidental.]]

** Dressrossa can be considered this in comparison to Alabasta, as both feature a Warlord of the Sea plotting to take over a country, resulting in a civil war. Then again, in Dressrossa's case, Doflamingo actually succeeded a long time ago, and this time, the Straw Hats, their allies and the former royal family end up essentially starting a rebellion against Doflamingo and his allies. The similarity is touched upon, though, and used as a reason why the Seven Warlords should be abolished.

* One common criticism of the ''Franchise/XMen'' books under AllNewAllDifferentMarvel is that it's a much more poorly-executed rehash of the Decimation era, with mutants once again facing extinction.

* Cartoon writer David Wise did this a lot:
** "Kremzeek!" from ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' became "The Big Zip Attack" in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' and "Zap Attack" for ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.

** Wise also recycled huge chunks of his script for the ''Transformers'' episode "Microbots" for the ''TMNT'' episode "Shredder and Splintered." In the former, the Autobots shrink themselves to [[FantasticVoyagePlot go inside Megaton's body]], in the latter, the turtles climb inside the {{Kaiju}}-sized Krang, and from that point on the two episodes feature virtually identical dialogue and action.

** Especially glaring is the ''TMNT'' episode "Poor Little Rich Turtle", which is almost beat-for-beat identical to the ''Transformers'' episode "The Girl Who Loved Powerglide".

** "Ties That Bind" is similar to ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Little Miss Interprets" with both plots revolving around some misunderstandings leading to a belief among the kids of the family (The Louds and the PPG, respectively) that their parents are going to get rid of them.

** "Ties That Bind" is similar to the ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' episode "Eight Take-Away One Equals Panic" and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Little Miss Interprets" with both Interprets", all three plots revolving around some misunderstandings leading to a belief among the kids of the family (The Louds Louds, the Muppets, and the PPG, respectively) that their parents guardians are going to get rid of them.

* 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.

** The episodes "The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well" and "28 Pranks Later" have almost identical basic plots. In them, Rainbow Dash is acting more obnoxious than usual, so the other ponies form a plan to take her down a peg and teach her the error of her ways (inventing a superhero to upstage her at every turn and staging a ZombieApocalypse, respectively).
