* Subverted to hell and back with ''Anime/{{Daitarn 3}}'', by Creator/YoshiyukiTomino. Similar name as the series that came before it, ''Anime/{{Zambot 3}}''? Check. Similar design for the robot? Check. Similar weapons like a "Sun Attack" which is almost identical to Zambot's "Moon Attack"? Check. Three main characters? Check. KillEmAll ending? HELL NO! Although Zambot 3 was one of the first {{Deconstruction}}s of the SuperRobot genre, Daitarn was a more humorous crossover with [[XMeetsY James Bond in a Super Robot.]] Doesn't stop them from having team attacks in VideoGame/SuperRobotWars, though.

* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' and ''Manga/VinlandSaga'' are often said to be the spiritual successors of ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. In fact, if you put ''Claymore'' and ''Vinland Saga'' [[XMeetsY in a blender,]] you'd get a serving of ''Berserk''.

* ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'' is this to ''Manga/WanderingSon''. Both are {{Seinen}}} series with [[ArtStyleDissonance surprisingly cute art styles]] for their maturity level and each have a {{transsexual}} TheCutie character who has sported a bob haircut. The former is overall darker though and is a deconstruction of the OtokonokoGenre.

* ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' can be considered a Studio TRIGGER version of [[spoiler: TYPE-MOON's ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'']]: both shows are comedies based on [[spoiler: taking several different independent properties owned by the company (''Inferno Cop, Kill la Kill'' for TRIGGER and ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}, [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate]]'' for TYPE-MOON) and crossing them over with comedic results,]] along with being a sort of SelfParody of the companies producing the anime.

* First, Junichi Sato directed ''{{Pretear}}'', a MagicalGirl series that is (very) loosely based on "Literature/SnowWhite", and features a redheaded heroine with a PrettyBoy and TallDarkAndSnarky JerkWithAHeartOfGold as her love interests, and a DarkMagicalGirl enemy who believes nobody loves her. Three years later, he directed ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', a MagicalGirl series featuring a ballet-dancing redheaded heroine trapped in a fairytale-influenced world with... a PrettyBoy and TallDarkAndSnarky JerkWithAHeartOfGold as her love interests, and a DarkMagicalGirl enemy who believes nobody loves her. While the two series are very different in tone and overall story (Pretear is a ReverseHarem that starts out light-hearted and quickly becomes dark, while Tutu has dark elements from the get-go and is full of meta about art and storytelling), the similarities are hard to ignore.

* Several themes in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' can be traced to scriptwriter GenUrobuchi's afterword to the first volume of ''Literature/FateZero'', of which he was also the author.

''ENDLESS NIGHT'''s primary focus (figure skating), core concepts, and some of its imagery (most notably that of [[spoiler:two men pair skating together]]) are all transferred into ''Yuri!!! on Ice''.
