* ''ComicBook/ZipiYZape'': In the late 80s Escobar started a new series about, wait for it... two twin brothers with different hair color, Terre and Moto (Terremoto, "Earthquake") who, huh, were mischievous but kind and smart and went to school and had adventures. Apparently, Escobar had a falling out with his old publisher but they had the rights to Zipi y Zape so Escobar decided to start a new IP as similar as possible to his old one. The new series wasn't exactly successful and Escobar was back to drawing Zipi y Zape before long.
** Minor detail: Terre and Moto are not twins. Terre is the older brother, and Moto is two or three years his junior. The pilot story when they are introduced ends with the family celebrating the newborn Moto christening, and Terre is already a toddler able to stand by himself.

* Creator/MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/{{Westworld}}'' depicts an amusement park built around unique attractions, robots. After the initial magnificient impression, chaos and death ensues when the robots outgrow their design and safeguards. Skip ahead two decades and change robots to dinosaurs and you get the wildly successful ''Literature/JurassicPark''.

There are many reasons for this. It may because of the executive's belief that [[RecycledINSPACE lazily changing the setting will in itself attract more viewers]], milking a {{cash cow|Franchise}} without making it seem too obvious or simply an author being unable to shake off his SignatureStyle.

** Their 2017 single "Weekend Woman" is effectively a drastically reworked version of "Burning Sun", an outtake from their 2001 self-titled album: The verse melody is identical, but the arrangement is very different, most of the lyrics are changed, and new bridge and chorus sections have been added.

* The UsefulNotes/VirtualBoy shooter ''VideoGame/VerticalForce'' is very similar to the earlier shmups ''Soldier Blade'' and ''VideoGame/StarSoldier''. All of them were made by HudsonSoft.

* Creator/HPLovecraft, despite his originality on almost all other fronts, had a tendency to create his ''own'' cliches and recycle plots and plot events he'd already used before, perhaps several times. One excellent and particularly extreme example is "Dagon" and "The Call of Cthulhu", the latter being pretty much a {{Remake}} of the former.

* ''Shadow of the Lion'', first book of the Literature/HeirsOfAlexandria by Creator/MercedesLackey, Creator/EricFlint, and Dave Freer, includes a fantasy reworking of Lackey's contributions to the science fiction shared-world "Literature/MerovingenNights" begun by Creator/CJCherryh, with the names changed but several passages taken almost word-for-word.

* Quoth WebVideo/DarkLordJadow1:
--->In my Digital Homicide Library review I covered a game of theirs called Krogwars, a shitty Videogame/SpaceInvaders clone with a glitch that often failed to load the next level, leaving you stuck on a blank screen. The game was literally unplayable. After Krogwars got onto Steam, they released Wyatt Derp (which was the exact same game as Krogwars only with the spaceships replaced with cowboys), Wyatt Derp 2 (Which was the exact same game as Wyatt Derp 1 only with the camera rotated a bit), and Withering Kingdoms: Arcane War (which was the same game as Krogwars and Wyatt Derp only this time it was wizards). All three of these games passed through Steam Greenlight because itís easy to make a Space Invaders clone look playable in a 30 second trailer, and so Digital Homicide began absolutely spamming Krogwars clones onto Greenlight feeling they had struck a gold mine of easy revenue.
