* ''Film/AnAffairToRemember'' from 1957 (with Creator/CaryGrant and Deborah Kerr) is a remake of the 1939 film ''Film/LoveAffair'' (with Charles Boyer and Creator/IreneDunne). It uses the exact same script, with very minimal alterations and additions to the story. The songs were also updated. The film was remade again in 1994 under the original title (with Warren Beatty and Annette Benning), but this version, while keeping the basic story, had a new script. The original film is also responsible for several Bollywood films, a couple of which also use the same script.

** The spinoff, ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', followed suit in an episode where Cleveland performs a literally identical version of the Montgomery Flea Market ad meme (aka, "It's Just Like A Mini-Mall").

* While the ''Videogame/CrashBandicootNSaneTrilogy'' is mostly marketed as a remaster, the actual creation of the game evokes this. As the original trilogy was from the playstation 1 era and therefore the code of the first 3 were unusable for remastering on the PS4; so the dev team simply remade the three games from the ground up copying the original level geometry. Vicarious Visions have even coined the term for this difference as a "Remaster+".

* A common target for ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'''s SeasonalRot has been how most, if not all, of their {{Manatee Gag}}s have become these: the scenes are ''so'' identical to their source material, both visually and [[OverlyLongGag in length]], that whatever joke was intended (if one was even intended at all) is completely lost. A clear example of this would be "Oceans 11 And A Half," where Stewie creates a music video for a song he wrote, which turns out to be an identical remake of Music/BryanAdams' video for "Everything I Do (I Do For You)" in its entirety.

** As mentioned above Samurai is almost identical to Shinkenger yet a few minor details are changed such as Kevin Being a Swimmer instead of being a Kabuki Performer like his counterpart and [[spoiler: Jayden and Lauren being siblings instead of Jayden being a decoy for Lauren like Takeru was for Kaoru]][[labelnote: spoiler]][[ArtisticLicenseHistory However]], this is a plot hole, since anyone who's familiar with the rules surrounding historic Japanese clans will tell you that the first born son is automatically the heir, regardless of if they are not the first born child[[/labelnote]]. Deker and Dayu's backstory was the biggest departure from Shinkenger with Juzou and Dayuu being unrelated in Shinkeger but the former being husband and wife. This was one of the few things the series was praised for.

* ''Video/MetalGearSolid'''s UsefulNotes/GameCube remake, ''The Twin Snakes'', is an interesting example. The level design is almost identical to the original, but the gameplay has been updated to include features from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' with very few level design changes and only a small ArtificialBrilliance upgrade to compensate for it, leading to a game with far more SchizophrenicDifficulty than the original.
** The cutscenes, directed by Ryuhei Kitamura, were [[WhatCouldHaveBeen going to be]] completely faithful carbon copies of the original, but Creator/HideoKojima demanded new cutscenes that used Kitamura's [[SignatureStyle signature over-the-top action]].

* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShowLetsDoTheTimeWarpAgain'' is pretty similar to ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' apart from the lips singing ''Science Fiction Double Feature'' being replaced with the Usherette from the original play.

* The 1931 Spanish language production ''Drácula'' was basically this to [[Film/{{Dracula 1931}} the 1931 Bela Lugosi film]]. In the early 1930s (before dubbing and subtitling), it was common for studios to simultaneously film foreign language versions of their films at night using the same sets with different casts and crew. The Spanish "Dracula" is by far the most famous of these. The final product is almost identical to the English-language film in most respects. The dialogue was a direct translation, and the staging was mostly the same. However, many scenes were longer since they used the entire original script (the English version had bits cut out to quicken the pace), and the Spanish film's director used more creative cinematography in an attempt to make the better film. Franchise/UniversalHorror fans do generally consider the Spanish film's pacing and cinematography to be superior, but the performances aren't considered to be quite as good, especially Carlos Villarias' Dracula not comparing to the legendary Creator/BelaLugosi. Interestingly, the Spanish film's female star, Lupita Tovar, is still alive at over 100, and the film itself can be easily seen with subtitles on most Dracula DVD and Blu-ray releases as a bonus feature.
