* The Website/GoAnimate "X Gets Grounded" videos have such a high level of this within them (likely due to the webiste's users simply wanting to make their own version of another person's grounded video while neglecting to put their own spin on it) that [[RecycledScript/GoAnimate there's a whole page dedicated to these frequently repeated plot-lines]].

* A weekday strip where Paige runs frantically to her classes because she was constantly late, only to go to P.E. on time, was later recycled as a Sunday strip. The only difference between the two is that the Sunday version had Nicole telling Paige that it's very ironic.

* ''Webcomic/TimesLikeThis'' took [[http://www.timeslikethis.com/?id=164 a strip from 2008]]... and recycled it (in honor of Earth Day) [[http://www.timeslikethis.com/?id=312 in 2010.]] The setup and punchline were the same; only the webcomics referenced, and some of the dialogue, were different.

** An anonymous informant who warns Snake of incoming traps. One of the more notable examples, as both characters turn out to be Gray Fox (Snake's Fan in [=MG2=], Deepthroat in [=MGS1=]).

** ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' did a similar plot in the episode "Man Person", where Beast Boy begins getting himself injured in battle to steadily replace his body with cybernetics until his head is the only part of his original body left. Unlike the above examples, him returning to his original form is handled via SnapBack.

** ''Kim Possible'' gives us a Father's Day episode (''Mathter & Fervant'') where teenage Ron doesn't want to hang out with his father, an actuary. The Dad then has to save the day to win his son's respect. The same plot is used in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' with Jake and his father (also an actuary.) Both series used the same writing staff and the episodes premiered within 24 hours of each other, making the borrowing all the more egregious.
** In addition, ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' both have an episode (''Kimitation Nation'' & ''Doug's En Vogue'') in which the main character inspires a fashion line, but it doesn't help their popularity at school, since everyone thinks they are just copying the look to get noticed. [[note]] Although the KP episode also had [[MadScientist mad scientists]] and [[CloningBlues evil clones of the the protagonist]], which the latter episode lacked. [[/note]] It's perhaps worth noting that Kayte Kutch & Sheryl Scarborough, who wrote the former episode, were also writers on WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}.

** "Magical Mystery Cure" and "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" share a similar formula: both are {{Musical Episode}}s where the protagonists undergo [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore a major transformation]] after solving a major cutie mark-related issue. [[spoiler:In the former, Twilight grows wings after figuring out how to return her friends' swapped cutie marks to normal and is crowned a Princess of Equestria. In the latter, the Cutie Mark Crusaders discover they share a talent of helping others understand their own talents after helping [[TheBully Diamond Tiara]] through a mark-induced identity crisis, which leads to them earning their cutie marks]].

* ''ComicBook/KaputAndZosky'' is rather fond of this, recycling not just scripts but entire episodes themselves. One episode has them try to take over a planet, only to find all of its inhabitants fleeing because it is about to be destroyed at sundown. Kaput and Zöski try to flee, only to have the planet blow up beneath them. The episode is later repackaged as a new episode, with only new dialogue used, with the plot changed to the planet, this time a popular tourist destination, becoming unpopular.

** In a rare instance of ''The Simpsons'' borrowing a plot from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', the "WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror XIV" short "Reaper Madness" involves Homer accidentally killing [[TheGrimReaper Death]] and having to take his place when he creates a world without death, much like the ''Family Guy'' episode "Death is a Bitch" where Peter has to take Death's place after the latter twists his ankle.
