* Poor ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'' was accused of being a ripoff of ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' before it even aired, due to the fact that Harvey, Fee, and Foo have the same color scheme as Gumball, Anais, and Darwin.

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' sometimes gets called a ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' rip-off, even though all they had in common was that they are about a HalfHumanHybrid with supernatural powers. If that wasn't crazy enough, the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' fans then began to accuse ''TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee'' of being a rip-off.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Too Loud'', a webtoon on Website/YouTube made by Dreamworks TV of all people, has been accused of being a ripoff of ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse''... even though the only things they have in common are that one of ''Too Loud'''s main characters bears a striking resemblance to Lincoln Loud, and that of course the webtoon has "loud" in its name.

** A lot of people figured ''Film/TheOne'' was just a rip off of ''The Matrix'', only with JetLi and more bullet time sequences. Considering that it came out practically soon after the first Matrix film and uses many of the same conventions, it was bound to be met with a little negativity, regardless of the fact that the two movies could not be more different.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheHunchbackOfNotreDameGoldenFilms'' has been widely panned for many reasons. One of them is that the villain is a carbon copy of Gaston from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''.

* ''VideoGame/InitialDArcadeStage'' fans like to do this to ''VideoGame/WanganMidnight''. Which is particularly ludicrous, given that Initial D's type of racing (mountain pass) and Wangan Midnight's type of racing (highway) aren't even remotely comparable. Wangan Midnight has more in common with ''OutRun'' or ''Super Bikes'' than ''Initial D''.

* This is true even for individual aspects of monster-collecting games. See VideoGame/DragonQuestMonsters - with its in-depth breeding system - which released in Japan in 1998, more than a full year prior to {{Pokemon}} Gold and Silver... [[OlderThanTheyThink yet it still catches a lot of flak for copying breeding from Pokemon]]. The VideoGame/DragonQuest series had already dabbled in the monster recruiting arts in its [[VideoGame/DragonQuestV fifth]] and [[VideoGame/DragonQuestVI sixth]] installments, though the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS remake of the latter replaced that feature with the ability to learn moves typically used by monsters (the remake of the former on the same system still has the monster recruitment feature, though).

* The original ''[[VideoGame/SaintsRow1 Saints Row]]'', while not terribly received, was considered by-and-large to be a copy of ''GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''. The series [[GrowingTheBeard grew its beard]] with ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'', which helped distinguish it from GTA as being a more comedic game than its [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV more serious contemporary]], with each game subsequent going [[OffTheRails further and further off the rails]].

* ''VideoGame/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe'' constantly gets bashed by reviewers for being ''FushigiYuugi'' with SerialNumbersFiledOff, on the grounds of having exactly the same combination of plot devices[[note]]TrappedInAnotherWorld + FantasyCounterpartCulture + {{Miko}} + TheFourGods + CastFullOfPrettyBoys + GottaCatchThemAll + DebutQueue + ElementalPowers + PersonalityPowers + BodyguardCrush[[/note]] as the basis. Note that ''Haruka'' is originally a [[{{Shoujo}} female-oriented]] DatingSim, for which a premise of a girl getting stuck in a fantasy world with loads of pretty guys as her guardians wouldn't exactly be a bad idea.

* Some may say that [[FateExtra Fate/Extra]] is just ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' with VisualNovel/FateStayNight characters and concepts. The fact that two ex-ATLUS employees worked on the developing team doesn't help.
