* In the ''LoveLive'' movie, when the group first catches sight of New York City, the BGM takes cues from Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue".
** The song "Guilty Night, Guilty Kiss" from ''LoveLiveSunshine'' sounds a lot like KatyPerry's "Teenage Dream".

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugnDt9SD9rQ Merry Go Round of Life]] from ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'' is quite similar to the opening phrases of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_FeLLZ7eIU Memories of Fanelia]] from ''Anime/{{Escaflowne}}''. Joe Hisaishi (composer for ''Howl''), the composer for Studio Ghibli, was the one to discover Yoko Kanno and lead her into anime music composition. However, ''Escaflowne'' actually came first, meaning the teacher referenced the student.

* The opening of "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHk1cJWp9cM Welcome to the World]]", Joseph's theme from the AnimatedAdaptation of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency'', sounds like the iconic pickup from "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcSLb2phjDk Owner of a Lonely Heart]]" by Music/{{Yes}}. Since ''[=JoJo=]'' is well known for referencing Western music and musicians, this may well have been an intentional homage.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaYKyGqRROY "Kirby!"]], the second opening of ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars'', sounds oddly similar to the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEOxjQJmwj4 opening theme]] for ''[[Manga/SailorMoon Sailor Moon Sailor Stars]]'', with certain portions of both songs sounding oddly alike and the two sharing identical musical structures.

* ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' has very short song that's suspiciously similar to Vangelis' ChariotsOfFire in episode 8, when Taiga is practicing swimming for the competition.

* The opening theme to ''Anime/TheBigO'' sounds suspiciously like Music/{{Queen}}'s "Film/FlashGordon". This one was also replaced for the USA DVD re-issue, although not from Creator/AdultSwim, the full version also contains a tiny hint of Bohemian Rahpsody, it appears the artist is a major Queen fan.
