* ''VideoGame/{{FEAR}} 2: Project Origin'' reuses about half the musics from its predecessor.
* ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor: Allied Assault'' has only five original music pieces, the rest are recycled from the first game, ''Underground'', and in the {{expansion pack}}s, ''Frontline''. Later, ''Airborne'' reused a number of ''Allied Assault'' and ''Frontline'' musics, such as "Snipertown", "Shipyards of Lorient" and "Clipping Their Wings".

* The iconic Music/EnnioMorricone soundtrack of ''Le Professionnel'' (a 1981 film with Jean-Paul Belmondo, not to be confused with ''Film/TheProfessional'') was, unbeknownst to most of the movie's French audiences, recycled from a contemporary British TV show, ''The Times and Life of David Lloyd George'', and had been previously uused in the 1978 BBC sci-fi serial An Englishman's Castle. It was recycled again in an entirely unrelated TV commercial for dog food. Said commercial was itself parodied in ''Asterix: Mission Cleopatra'' by recycling the soundtrack yet again.

* The ThemeTune from Alex Trebek's ''[[Series/DoubleDare1976 Double Dare]]'' was reused on Jim Perry's ''CardSharks'' a year after the former's cancellation. Both shows even had virtually-identical openings.

** Similarly, the "plonk plonk" timer on ''Series/{{Pyramid}}'', which is actually considered part of the soundtrack, was recycled on ''Series/{{Go}}''.

(Also odd, considering how the show was produced by Sony- which owns quite a few game shows, but not ''Scrabble'', which belongs to Creator/{{Hasbro}} and Creator/FremantleMedia.)

* The second Ocean dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' is a prime example of this. All the music was recycled, save for the opening theme song and perhaps one or two pieces from later in the dub. The Cell arc used music from the 1994 ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'' cartoon, while the Buu arc also included tracks from the English version of ''Monster Rancher''. Both these shows were previously dubbed by Ocean Productions. Interestingly, this has led some to believe that the earlier Saban BGM from Ocean's Saiyan / Namek Saga dub was also recycled from ''Mega Man'', which is incorrect, although some of that music [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWbI1idBals may have originated from Power Rangers]].

** The theme to another one of Stewart's shows, ''Series/{{Jackpot}}'', was later used on ''This Week in Baseball''.i
** In reverse, the Stewart series ''Series/ChainReaction'' borrowed its' theme from the notorious flop ''Series/{{Supertrain}}'' (both shows aired on NBC and got cancelled quickly, though ''Chain Reaction'' was cancelled for a morning talk show with David Letterman, not because it was bad).

* One episode of WesternAnimation/ActionLeagueNow recycled the theme from, of all things, Britain's ITV News at Ten; titled ''The Awakening'', its' been used since the program's debut in 1967; the version used in the episode was used from 1992 to 1999.

** Much of this score was based on recycled cues. John Murphy's original score had been rejected and after that, two more scores were rejected before a score was finally settled on shortly before opening. In the end, works from five different composers (Murphy, Music/MichaelKamen proteges Music/IlanEshkeri and Marius de Vries, HansZimmer protege Henry Jackman and Music/BasilPoledouris protege Christopher Lennertz) and many temp tracks (such as work from Music/EnnioMorricone and DannyElfman) became the score.

* The ''Film/SpiderMan1'' sequels both tracked in music from their predecessor(s) (which really annoyed Creator/DannyElfman, who refused to return for the second sequel -- and didn't reunite with Sam Raimi until ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'').

* And staying with Alan Silvestri, although ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' was scored by ''two'' A-list film composers in the forms of Creator/BrianTyler and Creator/DannyElfman the movie still reuses some Silvestri music from ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 The Avengers]]'', most notably his main theme during the end credits [[spoiler: and "Helicarrier" for the scene where said massive flying machine arrives to help get the citizens off the rising city before Ultron can drop it and launch his Extinction Level Event]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' takes a few cues from ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', at one point taking an entire song. One scene also uses a track from Creator/DannyElfman's score for ''The Kingdom''.
