** What makes this worse is that the creator managed to press the BerserkButton of various fans due to his recent tendency of [[TakeThat drawing his characters beating up/killing the characters that are they're based on]] (for example, Bulkey vs. Cuddles) in an attempt to make them [[DarkerAndEdgier more hardcore]]. He has, so far, managed to piss off not only HTF fans, but also [[Franchise/MyLittlePony MLP]] fans and possibly ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' fans (this one has only a single artwork, which depicts Kenny being killed by Merio). He probably also angered [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys FNAF]] fans by featuring an artwork of Bulkey beheading Freddy's head by kicking it off, especially with the artwork having part of title like [[TakeThat "What a piece of Animal Junk"]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretLifeOfPets'' was ridiculed during its advertising phase as a bland ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' clone. While they do share certain plot and premise similarities, the overall tone of the films are actually rather different. ''Secret Life of Pets'', for example, uses a lot of BlackComedey, where ''Toy Story'' has hardly any.

* Some fans dislike the fact ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' copied Mass Effect's dialogue wheel wholesale. Yep, BioWare managed to pull FollowTheLeader on themselves.

* This happens a great deal with Singaporean television, especially the childrens' programming. ''My Classmate Dad'' is a FreakyFridayFlip {{sitcom}} that basically is the actual ''Film/FreakyFriday'' with a lower standard of spoken English. ''Cosmo and George'' is about an alien who befriends a human who shows him the ropes of living on earth, mimicking the concept of ''Series/MorkAndMindy''. The Chinese-language drama serials aren't exempt from this respect. ''CID'' is ''Series/{{CSI}}'', ''The Time Machine'' copies (even by name) ''TheTimeMachine'', ''Baby Blues'' copies [[ComicStrip/BabyBlues the strip of the same name]], ''[[{{Fanservice}} Beach. Ball. Babes.]]'' is ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' (specifically volleyball tournament game), and ''Mrs P.I.'' is ''Series/ScarecrowAndMrsKing''.

** {{Music/Nirvana}} themselves get flak for sounding like the {{Pixies}} (even though Kurt Cobain openly acknowledged their debt to the band), for the riff to 'Teen Spirit' sounding like Boston's "More Than A Feeling" (also acknowledged at the time by the band), and a huge amount of HypeBacklash from people discovering that there were "Alt rock" bands ''before'' Nirvana and thus declaring Nirvana to be Music/{{Mudhoney}} / Music/BlackFlag / Music/DinosaurJr etc. ripoffs.

* Some harem themed Animes not named Tenchi are accused of being this; since ''TenchiMuyo'' was one of the most popular and successful Animes in that Genre. However, subverted with the ones that could stand on its own. Like ''Manga/LoveHina'' for example.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7BioHazard'' has received a bit of flak from the gaming community because of how similar it's presentation is to ''P.T.'', the teaser to the cancelled ''VideoGame/SilentHills''. The fact that the game launched a trailer the day it's trailer was released also had similarities to ''P.T.''

* The most common criticism leveled against ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' is that it is a [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] clone, though both were created for Nintendo.

* Some may say that [[FateExtra Fate/Extra]] is just ''{{Persona 3}}'' with VisualNovel/FateStayNight characters and concepts. The fact that two ex-ATLUS employees worked on the developing team doesn't help.
* Lightning, of FFXIII, is often accused of being a gender-swap of Cloud from FFVII. It doesn't help that the director of FFXIII specifically asked for Lightning to be designed to be "like a female version of Cloud," and that the opening of FFXIII is similar to FFVII's.
