* During the surgery scenes in ''Film/NightOfTheBloodyApes'', three sets of hands are present - two operating and the third administering anaesthesia - even as the long shots indicate that only Dr. Krallman and Goyo are present in the room.

** "Pallet Party Panic" features a really funny example of this, when Ash is stuck in a true with a bunch of scared Pidgey. Deciding to release his Pidgeotto to protect them, the same clip of Ash throwing his Poké Ball is used, right after he is clearly shown to be hanging onto a branch, and therefore physically unable to move like that.

** An episode from Season 4 has Ulrich and Odd heading for the scanners in the factory; they enter with the Season 1-3 outfits and shots of them in the scanners are the Season 4 outfits. This is more {{egregious}} as the latter outfits weren't introduced until the next episode. Whoops.

** The episode "Battle Aboard the St. Anne" had a sequence where multiple Pokémon of the same species gang up to fight Team Rocket grunts. The Pikachu team up is shown by recycling part of the scene from "Pokémon Emergency" where every Pikachu in the Viridian Pokémon Center team up to protect and help Ash's Pikachu, with the background changing in an obvious way (the inside of the Pokémon Center haves off-white walls and roof, while the St. Anne's interiors have a blue roof and upper floor walls)

** Ninja Steel makes a secondary weapon from sentai the morpher. Two problems: since the sword was the morpher in sentai, the sword is used to activate ''every'' star except the morphing ones, and the morphing stars themselves are typically seen on the swords during battle. On top of that, the morphers always vanish during the TransformationSequence and even morph scenes that go StockFootage-less... even if the Ranger in sentai ''was'' using the weapon that became the morpher in PR (meaning that the Ranger morphs, the morpher explicitly vanishes, but it's still being held in the next shot.)

**Of course, the worst had to be between Overdrive and RPM, where Sentai had shifted to wide-screen but PR hadn't yet. Sometimes they could get away with the sentai footage being zoomed in, but sometimes it was just plain ''squashed like a bad youtube video.''

** In the original "Green With Evil" storyline from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', footage of Burai from ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' was used to represent Tommy being transformed into the Green Ranger by Rita. The audience was apparently supposed to ignore that "Tommy" is clearly Asian for a few seconds when he first appears in Rita's fortress.

The audience was apparently supposed to ignore that "Tommy" is clearly Asian (and with short hair instead of his trademark mullet; highly obvious even when in silhouette) for a few seconds when he first appears in Rita's fortress.



** ''Super Megaforce'' managed to turn this into an art form. On top of not explaining why female yellows from the original Saban era have skirts now, since those characters were female, the producers never cared about replacing (at least ''most'' the time) stock footage of unadapted ''Sentai'' teams present in the ''Gokaiger'' stock footage. However, they seem to do it especially selectively, as it appears they wanted to remove pre-mid 80s teams due to the difference in suit materials shifting more to spandex after the first several years. In episode 13, this came as a double whammy, when before a commercial break, we see four of the suits from ''Changeman'', then after the commercial break, Troy's inexplicably the red ranger from ''Maskman'', since they excluded the footage of Marvelous changing to it from the original ''Gokaiger'' episode. Then in episode 19, the production team did the unthinkable and had the costume department make ''new'' suits of Change Griffon, Green Flash, Blue Mask, and Five Yellow (you can tell because they're made of the exact same material PR's been using for the American suits for years). This particularly egregious because those teams were from unadapted, pre-Zyuranger, Sentai teams and seasons, which was going to be an effect of the stock footage anyways, but also because they actually went out of their way to film ''new shots'' of these suits just because they didn't want Vul Eagle in the shots rather than MMPR red, or didn't wanna do the green screen effects required for it. This is a new form of lazy for the entire franchise, as doing this is specifically spending money to film new shots to be lazy and not film more than that, or replace the rest of the scene with ''different'' choices of teams, since they were filming new shots anyways.

It's especially maddening to fans because there are several Rangers that ''were'' in PR and thus ''are'' meaningful to its audience that never had their suits featured despite awesome Gokaiger footage of them existing; it all hits the cutting room floor in favor of Flashman, Maskman, Changeman, etc. Apparently [[RunningTheAsylum the showrunner was a sentai weeaboo]].

*** As far as newer seasons go, ''PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' is possibly the one exception. In the Sentai footage, the rangers are much bulkier, plus the shoulder pads and chest insignia on their costumes are way smaller. Compare the suits in the [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/vi/0/09/Boukenger.jpg stock footage]] to the suits in the [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/powerrangers/images/0/00/OO-rangers.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110801001937 American footage.]]

* Likewise, ''Film/GodzillaRaidsAgain'' has out-of-place stock footage. One of the most baffling examples takes place during a nightclub scene, when Tsukioka is taking his girl out on a date prior to Godzilla's attack. One of the shots includes an elaborate stage show consisting of a number of women with umbrellas. All of this is fairly normal, except for one important detail. The footage was very obviously sourced from pre-1945 propaganda films, as evidenced by the presence on either side of the stage of Japanese, Fascist Italian (the pre-1943 flag with the arms of the Kingdom of Savoy) and Nazi German flags. As this presents a fairly large [[NoSwastikas problem]] for anyone who wants to release the film or show it on TV, a common expedient is to digitally cover the swastika [[note]]the Italian flag is usually not censored as the symbol is much less controversial, and the Japanese flag used in the scene is the same as the current Japanese flag, and not the Imperial "Rising Sun" flag[[/note]] with a grey or black disc. However, as the digital disc is stationary and does not move with the film's frame jitter, this ends up letting the offending symbol peek through slightly.
