* ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' ([[TitleConfusion no]], [[NamesTheSame not]] [[WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters those]] Film/{{Ghostbusters}}) 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''.

* Some of the music in ''Theatre/{{Chess}}'' borrows from songs written by composers Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus for {{ABBA}}. In particular, the chorus of "I Know Him So Well" was based on the chorus of "I Am An A" and the chorus of "Anthem" used the chord structures from the guitar solo from "Our Last Summer".

* One of the criticisms of ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' was it was a rehash of the plot of ''Film/BatmanForever'': an established villain (Two-Face/Mr. Freeze) goes on a crime spree that our hero or heroes must stop, a former Wayne Enterprises employee (The Riddler/Poison Ivy) snaps and decides to become a villain, someone new (Robin/Batgirl) comes to live at Wayne Manor, the new villain teams-up with the already active one, the new person learns Bruce Wayne is Batman (and in ''& Robin''[='=]s case, Dick Grayson is Robin) and becomes a crime fighter, the new villains screws with the Batsignal (the Riddler making it the dot of a question mark/Poison Ivy replacing the Batsymbol with Robin's), Batman gets a new costume for the final battle (as do Robin and Batgirl in ''& Robin''), the villains are beaten, and even the end shot is the same: the heroes running towards camera with the Batsignal behind them.

* Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's ''ComicBook/BatmanEndgame'' is basically a redo of ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfTheFamily'', right down to having [[spoiler: having the Joker as the main villain. Among the few differences are the Justice League replacing the Batfamily as the allies the Joker jokerizes and turns against Batman and instead of the League disbanding, the story ending with Batman presumed dead.]]

* ''VisualNovel/ApolloJustice'' has a script that goes so out of its way to avoid mentioning characters' names from the original VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightTrilogy that it looks like they're WritingAroundTrademarks. It becomes especially glaring when Phoenix refuses to use Maya's name in reference to her, given that she's his (ex)assistant. Only thing is, both games are made by Capcom, and ''Apollo'' is the sequel to ''Phoenix'', so there's really no reason ''not'' to mention old friends by name.
* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' uses a version of "Bowser in the Dark World" from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' for its main menu.

* 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.
* In ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'', the fanfare following "Painting the Roses Red" is the same as from ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''.


Added DiffLines:

* In the animated short ''Disney/GoliathII'', a crocodile appears based on the crocodile Tick-Tock from ''Disney/PeterPan''. Some of the animation comes from previous animated movies including ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' and ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''.

* In ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', Taran crawls under a branch and goes through the trees in the Forbidden Forest, in search of Hen Wen, in the same way Arthur searches for Sir Kay's arrow in ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone''.

* In ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', Sir Kay shoots an arrow at a deer resembling Bambi's mother in ''Disney/{{Bambi}}''. Sir Ector hits Sir Kay in the same way Horace hits Jasper in ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians''.
