*** An audio example occurs in one episode's ThemeMusicPowerUp: When the Rangers defeat the MonsterOfTheWeek, the wrong theme song is used, as [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai "Rangers together, Samurai forever"]] can be heard in the lyrics.

* Even for a Saban show made in the 90's, ''Series/VRTroopers'' has a surprising amount of Stock Footage Failures:
** The footage of Grimlord's palace (and the [[Series/ChoujinkiMetalder Metalder]] footage in general) always looks fuzzier, darker, and more low quality than the rest of the show, making it very obvious when the footage switches from Japanese to American.
** Adapting two different Metal Hero shows meant that JB and Katlin never fight with Ryan when battling a monster (outside of battle grid mode). With 92 total episodes, this becomes more and more obvious through the course of the series, resulting in a very disjointed feel to the action.
** Due to the limited amount of footage of Grimlord's lair, the amount of soldiers visible in any scene usually fluctuates, sometimes Grimlord addressing the four generals and the next shot having the rest of his army suddenly appear.
** In the first season, the goons seen in Grimlord's court were all monsters who'd eventually get to be the monster of an episode. Since stock footage was used for some villains' base scenes, previously defeated monsters were often right there to greet Grimlord as he arrived, just like last week... and some would do battle again, with or without their past demises Handwaved. Many monsters were seen multiple times, with his personal favorites kept into the second season.
*** The most egregious example is Air Striker. This helicopter-based monster was sent nearly every episode, destroyed nearly every episode, and always came back for more. Of course, given the fact that they're computer-generated creations, he can simply recreate any monster he likes.
** The air battles footage is even more limited, with virtually the same sequence of slips being used for every battle; if you've seen one, you've seen them all.
** In "The Great Brain Robbery", when Snowbot is attacking Katlyn and JB with his flamethrower and frost gun, another fighter can be seen next to them (which is the third warrior from Series/JikuuSenshiSpielban, Helen Lady).
*** Katlin would later get the ability to create a mirror clone of herself, probably written to prevent any more inconsistencies.
** In "Three Strikes", the look of the apartment rapidly changes between the Japanese and American footage, with the floor and wall changing colors.
** In "Game Over", Despera suddenly [[ShesAManInJapan becomes a man]] when fighting Ryan.

*** 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://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110801001937/powerrangers/images/0/00/OO-rangers.jpg American footage.]]

* Frequently parodied in ''Series/AllAussieAdventures''. Most obviously, there's a RunningGag where Russell goes to shake someone's hand, and they cut to a closeup of two obviously different hands shaking. There are also numerous driving shots that were obviously filmed in a different state to the rest of the episode.

** In "The Dalek Invasion of Earth", an alligator [[TrappedByMountainLions menacing Susan]] is represented by stock footage of a rather small and ineffectual-looking gavial.
** In "The Romans", Ian is taken to fight in the arena, and peers out of the bars of his cell to see what it is he's going to fight. What follows is a poorly-edited sequence of lots of different lions in clearly very different zoos, none of which look remotely Roman.
** Happens in-universe in "The Space Museum", when the Doctor is hooked up to a mind-reading machine so his captor can find out where his companions are using pictures extracted from his memory. The footage extracted this way is useless because it shows where the companions were when he left them a long while ago, not where they are now. By this time, he's figured out a PsychicBlockDefense and so, when pressed harder, the screen starts producing deliberately ridiculous stock footage of sea lions, etcetera.
** Originally, The Time Meddler included a very poor quality looking shot of the viking ship approaching. The restoration team used a new scan of the stock footage for the DVD, but found that (by going from a multi-generational 16mm TV recording to a 35mm newsreel extract) [[GoneHorriblyRight the restored stock footage looked too high quality]]. In the end, artificial grain and softness was added to make the stock footage look like the rest of the episode.
** Subverted in "The Ark", which starts with a bunch of shots of live animals framed and filmed in a way to resemble stock footage, having Dodo point out an elephant by cutting between a shot of the elephant alone in the frame and Dodo looking at it from the reverse angle... [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome and then walking forward, into the frame with the elephant and touching it]].
** In "The War Machines", WOTAN orders his slaves to make a machine. Splice in stock footage of welders, in completely different lighting, and who (even with the masks on) look absolutely nothing like the slaves.
** Subverted in "Doctor Who and the Silurians". We're shown footage of a helicopter which cuts back to soldiers travelling about on the hills. Obvious stock footage... until we cut back to the helicopter and we realise it has UNIT written on the side. And then it swerves past the hillside, appearing in the same shot with an actor, as if to say 'ha, look, we CAN afford it'.

** "Name of the Doctor" cuts between stock footage of [[spoiler: the Second Doctor]] and scenes of him recorded with a double from behind. The double doesn't even try to match his movement to the stock footage, especially with the distinctive running style of the character in the footage.

Since he's in-character as the Doctor in the footage, which shows him at about half his current age, the result is [[MagicRealism hilariously nonsensical]].

* The ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'' episode "Lover's Cover" reused a shot of a car plunging into the ocean from the Season 2 episode "If Looks Could Kill." The original episode was about a murderer who had a dead guy in her backseat, and the wrapped up corpse is consequently visible in the "Lover's Cove" scene that reused the shot.

* ''Series/TheTimeTunnel'' episode "One Way to the Moon" mixed shots of a real Mercury-Atlas rocket with scenes lifted from ''DestinationMoon''. It didn't even fool a seven-year-old in 1966.
