* NorthKorea takes the cake in this area, since the Korean People's Army's equipment is generally a shoddy knock-off of shoddy knock-offs from China. The ''nec plus ultra'' of their copying has to be their Harbin H-5s. The Harbin H-5 is a Chinese knock-off of the Soviet Ilyushin Il-28, which had its first flight in 1950. The originals were powered by the RD-45, an unlicensed knock-off of the Rolls-Royce Nene, a British engine from ''1944'' (and which was quickly passed over in favor of the better Rolls-Royce Avon). This means North Korea flies airframes that are Chinese knock-offs of a six decade old Soviet design, powered by North Korean knock-offs of Chinese knock-offs of Russian knock-offs of a British design that is over ''70 years old''. Glory to Kim Il-sung and ''Juche-Songun'' thought, eh?
** If that doesn't make your head spin, then this probably will: North Korea's missile program is based on designs reverse-engineered from Egyptian, Syrian, and Chinese missiles, which came from the Soviet Union, which in turn were based off of [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons rockets]]. The designs of these missiles has since been exported to Iran and Pakistan, who then made their ''own'' knock-off missiles.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/leokimvideo leokimvideo]] often showcases several cheap knock-off (or as he calls them, "Dark Side") toys based on various children's franchises such as ThomasTheTankEngine, AngryBirds and DespicableMe. He often explains why these toys are dangerous, and to ensure no child ever plays with them, he often ends up destroying them. His favorite method seems to be [[StuffBlowingUp fitting small bombs in them,]] but he has also been known to smash toys up with a hammer, set them on fire, or even put them in a wood crusher.

* VideoGame/PokemonGo practically begged for this to occur, especially after Niantic/Nintendo made a (since withdrawn) announcement that the game will not be launched in China and is being very secretive regarding their launch schedule. As the total result of their actions, [[https://www.techinasia.com/pokemon-go-clone-china ripoffs have flooded the chinese iOS store, as well as the various unofficial android appstores in the country]].
