* The ending theme of ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' performed by Walkure, "When the Rune Sparkles", sounds similar to "September" by Music/EarthWindAndFire. Which leads to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3nfweteZck&feature=youtu.be this mashup]].

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMYt9sGOcTU "Battle Point: Unlimited"]] sets a new bar by ripping off ''[[UpToEleven an entire album]]'', that being ''A Secret Wish'' (1985) by the German synth band Propaganda. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qda4OW8TTpE This video]] shows how blatantly the track ripped off the album by recreating it using samples from ''A Secret Wish'' (complete with annotations listing each song that was used).

* "Ark" from YokoKanno's ''Anime/BrainPowerd'' soundtrack starts off like the ''Terminator'' theme with bagpipes. Och, I'll be back, laddie!
* Also by YokoKanno, "Jig" from ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' resembles John Williams' "Letting Off Steam" from ''Far and Away''.
