* Some reviews accused ''FossilFighters'' of being an in-house ''{{Pokemon}}'' clone from Nintendo, since they're both {{Mons}} games--and the initial evil you fight is ''very'' similar to Team Rocket.

* Music/{{Nickelback}} have been accused of this in most of their songs, especially "How You Remind Me" and "Someday."

* Music/{{Nickelback}} have been accused of this in most of their songs, especially "How You Remind Me" and "Someday."" A mashup layering those two specific songs over each other went viral for a spell, though some editing and speeding up of tempos was needed to make the two songs fit together completely seamlessly.

* The CutSong "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG_0HRYUqyM Proud of Your Boy]]" from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' bears a resemblance to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBa9QlzEWA4 "Part of Your World"]] from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', which itself is a self-plagiarism of Ashman and [[Music/AlanMenken Menken's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouLiQ7KhmYU Somewhere That's Green]] from ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors''. Reportedly, when writing "Part of Your World" they jokingly called it "Somewhere That's Dry."
** "Be Our Guest" from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is very similar to ''The Little Mermaid'''s "Les Poissons". Conversely, "Beyond My Wildest Dreams" from the stage musical of ''The Little Mermaid'' resembles "Belle" from ''B&B''.

* Vince [=DiCola=] worked in the soundtracks of ''Film/RockyIV'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'' with a short gap between them. As a result, the respective antagonists' [[{{Leitmotif}} musical themes]] "Ivan Drago Suite" and "Unicron Medley", both composed by him, sound very similar.

* A chase scene in ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' between Baloo, King Louie and Mowgli is similar to a chase scene with Mole, Water Rat, Mr. Winkie and the Weasels in ''Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad''. Mowgli returns to the wolf den, and gets licked by wolves, like Arthur returns to the castle, and gets licked by dogs, in ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone''. The elephant Colonel Hathi is based on the elephant Goliath I from the animated short ''Disney/GoliathII'', where some elephant scenes are taken, including the elephants stopping and piling up.
