* ''VideoGame/{{Interstate 76}}'' had a number of Suspiciously Similar versions on its soundtrack, mostly of '70s funk songs like the Ohio Players' "Fopp", The Isley Brothers' "That Lady" and Curtis Mayfield's "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below, We're All Going to Go". Even the theme song bore a certain resemblance to the theme song to the TV series ''Series/{{SWAT}}'' (albeit a bit sped-up).

** In yet another "same series" example, the music that plays during the first visit to Peach's castle in ''Paper Mario'' is almost, but not quite, the theme for Peach's castle in ''Super Mario 64''. It's especially weird since the game uses plenty of other themes from across the ''Mario'' series verbatim.
