* While the first six ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books have the same structure anyway, the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets second one]] in particular follows almost all of the same plot points of the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOhilosophersStone first one]], making it almost a remake.

** Kimimaro and Haku have almost the exact same backstories of ostracized and orphaned bloodline limit carriers found by desertor ninja, to whom they consider themselves merely tools. Both even hail from the same village.



* While some degree of this trope was inevitable given the {{Troperiffic}} nature of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' franchise, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' echoes ''Film/ANewHope'' quite strongly. However, it does manage to keep things fresh enough to prove that TropesAreNotBad. Still, Creator/GeorgeLucas [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/george-lucas-sorry-white-slavers-851661 complained that]] while he liked the movie, Disney made it too retro, as in the so-divisive prequels Lucas at least tried something different.

* ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'' is, blow-by-blow, the very same thing as the original ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' with the situation, the heroes involved and the characters killed changed around.

** "Strong Armed" has similarities to "Bubblevision". Both include Bubbles having a medical condition, with the former having her break the arm and the latter revealing she is near-sighted.

** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E8TheGunfighters The Gunfighters]]" has the same plot as "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E3TheMythMakers]]", both by the same writer. A comedic historical story where the Doctor is mistaken for a historical figure (Zeus/Doc Holliday) and through a series of farcical events, people die.

* A few later episodes of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' seem to have recycled plots from other Nicktoons. "Toy Store of Doom", for example, has essentially the same plot as the ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode "Toy Palace" (they get locked in the toy store after it closes for the night and are afraid the toys will attack them), while "Banned in Bikini Bottom" (Krabby Patties are outlawed and Mr. Krabs starts selling them at [=SpongeBob=]'s house secretly) is similar to the ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' episode "Just Say [=CatDog=] Sent Ya," in which Farburg Burger Bones are banned from Nearburg and [=CatDog=] stars selling them at a speakeasy in an underground cellar.

** ''Film/DieAnotherDay'' didn't go as far, but copied from ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'' the primary weapon of the villain (an orbiting satellite using smuggled diamonds that shot down nuclear missiles) and the fact that he teamed up with a foreign agent that happened to be the only girl he slept with that movie. They wanted to reference previous movies for number twenty, but that was a little much. ''Die Another Day'' alos took plenty of elements from the ''Literature/{{Moonraker}}'' novel which is perfectly fair game as ''Moonraker'' didn't get an adaptation, [[Film.{{Moonraker}} the film]] only used the title and the villain's name. Neither did ''Diamonds Are Forever'' really. The smuggling and Wint and Kidd are from the novel but everything else is from an original idea by the producer, Albert R. Broccoli.
