* The Ukrainian company GSC Game World, of VideoGame/{{STALKER}} fame, made a game called ''Warcraft 2000'' during the 1990s. This was a glorified mod of ''Warcraft 2'', sold as an official sequel. The plot was about grey aliens manipulating Orcs and Humans to wage war.

** ''[[ParanormalActivity Paranormal Entity]]''. Its sequel ''8213: [[MonsterClown GACY]] HOUSE'' is apparently some kind of ''Paranormal Activity 2'' rip-off. It was actually released in the UK as ''Paranormal Entity 2'' (though it's more likely that it was due to the John Wayne Gacy case not being as well known outside the US).

* ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aryamaan_%E2%80%93_Brahmaand_Ka_Yodha Aryamaan - Brahmaand Ka Yoddha]]'', an Indian knockoff Franchise/StarWars. It is a rare case of a movie franchise being ripped off by an entire TV series. The show itself is referred to by its producer as "Indian version of the famous Star Wars", but its such a blatant knockoff that it can't even be considered a "version". Aside from the obvious lightsaber ripoffs, the opening also is the famous OpeningScroll ([[RecycledInSpace but in Hindi!]]), the "Thar Planet" is very clearly a Tatooine knockoff, there is a superweapon that resembles the Death Star with a grimacing face, the robot Tobot bears a striking resemblance to C3P0,[[EarthShatteringKaboom a planet is seen being destroyed in Alderaan fashion]], the king's [[MarryThemAll multiple wives]] wear saffron robes very similar to those of Padme's handmaidens, and many, many more.

* There was once a video game company known as [[https://web.archive.org/web/20071024074909/http://phoenixgamesgroup.com/uk/contact.html Phoenix Games]], which hilariously touted itself as "The only European [[BlatantLies super budget]] publisher". The quality of their games implies that their definition of "super budget" is very different from the usual. Many of their games are obviously trying to pass themselves off as video game adaptations of well-known Disney cartoons, including beloved classics like ''[[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves Snow White And The Seven Clever Boys]]'', ''[[Disney/TheLionKing Lion And The King 3]]'', ''[[Disney/{{Mulan}} Mighty Mulan]]'', and the now infamous ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKZQb-jH-7A Dalmatians 3]]''.
