* Several people note that [[FollowTheLeader Sony's peripheral devices are rip-offs of Nintendo's controllers]]. From the SNES-like design, to the rumble, the control sticks and the motion sensor technology and connectivity between consoles and portables, Sony has been accused of being a copycat. Reportedly, PS Move has actually been in development since before the Wii was even announced (cost being the main reason it didn't launch with the PS3 itself, as the system cost enough to manufacture as it was [[http://kotaku.com/5640867/motion-gaming-gains-momentum]]). While this doesn't quite disprove the idea of Sony having Spies in Nintendo to steal from them, it does highlight the silliness of the issue.

* ''ThrillDrive'', a popular game that ran contrary to ''BurnOut'' concept of taking out other cars in a violent matter had a 4th installation that ran contrary to everything that made Thrill Drive the game it was with PowerUp items, a system that encourage maximum carnage as well as BoostPad, Japanese fans were not too amused

* In succession, Britain revealed several white women with a soul inspiration (JossStone, AmyWinehouse, Music/{{Duffy}}, Music/{{Adele}}) which lead to them getting their originality questioned - even if not only there was a GenreThrowback, but they ''were'' doing covers of old songs.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Garbage}} have frequently been accused of ripping off Music/{{Curve}}, due to their similar musical styles and similarities between the personas of the groups' lead singers. Curve alleged that Garbage's founding member Butch Vig started the group after Curve rejected his application to produce them.

* Nickelodeon series Series/{{Taina}} is very similar to the later Nick series {{Victorious}}. Bringing up the latter to a huge fan of the former can be a problem, because Taina was cancelled quite early while Victorious was AdoredByTheNetwork for several years.

** Some of the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' FanDumb like to accuse Hasbro of ripping off Sonic to make Rainbow Dash.

* Music/LadyGaga gets this quite a bit from haters, who say she copied countless artists, among them {{Music/Madonna}}, DavidBowie, BritneySpears, CyndiLauper, among others. For the record, she has outright admitted to having been inspired by many of the artists she allegedly copies.

** It had this issue in being compared to ''Anime/YuGiOh'' for a good while, and ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' itself is scoffed at by fans of ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. Which is interesting, because the author of ''Manga/YuGiOh'' stated on a website that he based the card game in his series on ''MagicTheGathering''.
** And the ''TabletopGame/DuelMasters'' card game (yes, there really is such a thing) is in turn produced by Wizards of the Coast, the ''makers'' of ''MagicTheGathering''...which makes a kind of sense, since the game really does have more in common with Magic than with ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh''. And, of course, the ''Franchise/DuelMasters'' manga is ''actually'' about Magic...which is what got Wizards interested in the property in the first place.

* Try to talk to anyone about ''Manga/BlueExorcist'', and most likely the first response will be "So it's like ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}: The Anime''."



* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has drawn several comparisons to ''Manga/DeathNote'', despite the former being part of the HumongousMecha genre and the latter being a supernatural crime thriller.
* ''Manga/{{Akumetsu}}'' has also gotten several comparisons to ''Manga/DeathNote''. The problem is that the latter is about the protagonist using his powers to destroy criminals, while the former is about the protagonist using his powers to destroy a corrupt government. Furthermore, Akumetsu was in serialization [[OlderThanTheyThink about a year before Death Note was.]]



** Oddly, ''Anime/YuGiOhCapsuleMonsters'' copied the American-produced second season of ''Duel Masters''.



* ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' is generally seen as a copy of ''Anime/SkyGirls'', but with {{Fanservice}} turned up a few notches, leading to its FanNickname of "Sky Girls no pantsu". This is a moot point, given that both are the brainchild of Shimada Humikane. By the way, have you seen those funky girl-machine hybrids dubbed MechaMusume floating around imageboards before SG and/or SW premiered? [[OlderThanTheyThink Yeah, those were Humikane's original creation too, and they appeared first]], ''and'' trademarked. Plus the Busou Shinki line of toys he premiered. And Mecha Musume is just Humikane's brand. Mecha ''Shoujo'' was around quite a while before that.

* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'''s first movie poster was accused of being a rip-off of posters for ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''. After the film came out many people are upset with how much this film borrows from previous Trek outings like "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS04E11Homefront Homefront]]", "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS04E12ParadiseLost Paradise Lost]]" and ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan Wrath of Khan]]''.
