* ''Manga/OnePiece'' is now one to ''Manga/KochiKame'', not because of their content but by the fact that after ''Manga/KochiKame'' ended, ''One Piece'' has become the oldest series that is still serialized in ''Weekly Shounen Jump''. As of 2017, it's celebrating its 20th anniversary and the only other series that premiered before the 2000 era is ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', a manga that is barely present in the magazine due to its high amount of hiatus and it was even completely absent in 2015. The only other LongRunner in the magazine is ''Manga/GinTama'' which premiered in 2003 and every other series premiered in 2012 and later. ''One Piece'' has been serialized for half as long as ''[=KochiKame's=]'' serialization and it is very clear that ''One Piece'' isn't going to end soon.

* 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.
