* ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'': A story features a lake monster and Lazlo treats the case like a [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Scooby Doo mystery]]. There's a "Mystery Latrine" with a sign painted the same style as the Mystery Machine, Lazlo and his friends [[LetsSplitUpGang split up]] ("Tradition dictates that we all split up and explore!", Lazlo says), someone theorizes the "monster" is some CorruptCorporateExecutive wanting the land for mining rights and, [[spoiler:when the monster is revealed to be the squirrel scouts just out for a midnight boat ride, Lazlo remains convinced that Patsy is someone wearing a mask.]]

* A mission in ''VideoGame/{{HAWX}}'', "Operation Whitehorse" has the player defend a space shuttle launch pad and the shuttle itself, carrying a super weapon to even the playing field in the war against enemy attack. First, the enemy sends wave after wave of airborne-dropped tanks, dropped from cargo planes. Then they begin sending jets to try and kill it. When all else fails, they start firing cruise missiles at it. A near-identical mission appears in ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'', "The White Bird Part I".

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' is a total retread of ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'' but with a dark conspiracy subplot as well. All of the setpieces are the same - finding a female soldier in the women's bathroom, Gray Fox warning you about mines using an anonymous radio frequency, a key that's a 'shape memory alloy' that changes with heat, punching the EvilCounterpart to death after losing your inventory, a cyborg ninja turns out to be a character from the previous game, a mysterious woman is revealed through dramatic irony to have a tragic part in Gray Fox's life, there's a battle with a helicopter using missiles, and many, many more. This differs from ''Metal Gear Solid 2'', which also retread much of this territory but the similarity was frequently lampshaded, exploited by GenreSavvy main characters and eventually revealed as plot important, since in ''Metal Gear Solid'' no-one points out the similarities at all and Snake is completely {{Genre Blind|ness}} to them.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' is ''Film/TheRock'' with the serial numbers filed off (New York instead of San Francisco, nukes rather than bioweapons) down to the occasional HomageShot and Harry Gregson-Williams doing the music in the same style - but also incorporating bits of pomo novel ''Literature/TheNewYorkTrilogy''. [[spoiler:A major plot point revealed near the end of the game is that it's also an intentional, in-universe retread of the first ''Metal Gear Solid'', though ironically right around when this reveal happens is when it starts going off the rails into... well, [[GainaxEnding something different]].]]
