Here's a fun one:
There was a scene I really liked in a series, where a bad thing affected all of the characters, except for one. He wasn't the main character, it wasn't a superpower, it was a weakness he had, and it was because of that he could shake it off. (Usopp with Perona's fear beam, for ref).
I shamelessly ripped it off.
Or so I thought.
I later realized I had already came up with a similar idea several ideas earlier
where a weakness let one of the characters bypass a challenge easily.
have no idea which one is more responsible for the scene I ended up with down the line.
