Added DiffLines:

* Those who played Tarsier Studio's DC Comics level pack for ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet 2'' were likely underwhelmed by the new characters intoduced in ''[=LittleBigPlanet=] 3'', [=OddSock=] and Swoop, because they reuse abilities introduced in said DLC. Specifically, [=OddSock=]'s wall jumping ability was already done with the Wall Jump Material and Tweaker, whilst Swoop's move of the same name was introduced via the Hero Cape. Swoop's flight is also note-for-note the same as the Jetpack gadget introduced in the original game!

* Creator/GeorgePerez was the visual creator of the MarvelComics mercenary Taskmaster, written by David Michelinie, in 1980. Some months later, Perez went to DCComics and was responsiple for the character design of another mercenary, Deathstroke, this time created by Marv Wolfman. The characters were much similar, with the [[OrangeAndBlueContrast same color scheme]], wearing the same kind of sleeves and boots, masks covering full face and carrying swords.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/RonnieMilsap's "A Woman in Love" sounds nearly identical to Clay Walker's "What's It to You", particularly on the chorus. Both songs were written by Curtis Wright.

* Data Design Interactive made a few games for the Wii; NinjabreadMan, Trixie in Toyland, Anubis II[[labelnote:*]]It's Anubis the Second. There is no game called Anubis I.[[/labelnote]], and Rock 'n' Roll Adventures. Sadly, if you play one, you've played them all; they're all just re-skins of the same lame game. All four games even share the same HUD display...and some of the same music as well! Some of the music is also used in their equally terrible Billy the Wizard.

* Taito's ''Ashura Blaster'' is very similar to Toaplan's ''TwinCobra'', which was also published by Taito.

Added DiffLines:

* In [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks the Golden Age]], the illustrious Simon & Kirby perpetrated a textbook example by slapping together The Defender for USA Comics not six months after creating [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Captain America]]. Where Captain America was the patriotically-attired spy-hunting alter ego of humble soldier Steve Rogers featuring a pre-teen sidekick named Bucky, the Defender was the patriotically-attired spy-hunting alter ego of humble Marine Don Stevens featuring a pre-teen sidekick named Rusty. Had some bonus ValuesDissonance too, as the one place where the Defender innovated over Cap was in being casually, appallingly racist towards the Japanese.

* ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' ([[TitleConfusion no]], [[NamesTheSame not]] [[WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters those]] Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}}) was just a repeat of their previous show ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' with Futura as The Sorceress, Primevil as Skeletor, etc. (In fact, didn't Alan Oppenheimer actually voice Primevil as well?) The same could perhaps be said about He-Man's DistaffCounterpart [[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]], since virtually every main character on ''She-Ra'' was an {{Expy}} of a character on ''He-Man''.

* Music/TheJesusAndMaryChain are frequent abusers of this -- you really can't go one album without finding at least two (some times ''up to four'') songs that sound almost ''exactly'' the same. This is particularly noticeable with their first three albums, which were all basically retreads of each other, just in different styles. Doesn't stop it from being [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic awesome]], though.

* Basshunter's ''DOTA'' and ''All I Ever Wanted'' are the same song with different lyrics. In turn, "DOTA" is [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong based on]] Daddy DJ's self-titled song.

** Don't forget ''WesternAnimation/JosieAndThePussyCats'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan''. This actually got so bad that Boomerang once had a block called "Those Meddling Kids", which showcased ''ScoobyDoo'' and its many, many rip-offs.
