* Subverted in the Bohemian Rhapsody arc of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Characters from other franchises who appear or are mentioned by name include Manga/{{Astroboy}}, ComicBook/SpiderMan, [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro and Raoh]], Film/TheTerminator and [[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]].
* ''Kagaku Na Yatsura'': Dr. Wily, Wily Castle, and some of Wily's technology appears, including Wily Machines and Wily Capsules.


** This [[{{Hentai}} H-series]] has a few characters that may be pretty familiar to some people, but the most-definitely-not-Kekko Kamen heroine is the most obvious example. Justified since ''AB'' is basically a parody of ''Manga/KekkoKamen''.
** At least two characters are [=CEs=] of [[VideoGame/FatalFury Mai Shiranui]] (the director apparently includes one in every project he works on as a ShoutOut, two more are basically the lead females of ''Gowcaizer'' renamed, and one more is Mizuki from ''Anime/{{Gravion}}'' given the same treatment.

* Power Top Plate is one to Anime/{{Beyblade}}. Both involve Fighting Tops. Both have a group of friends that form a team to enter a tournament. And both have [[{{Mon}} animals]] that appear when performing certain attacks.

Added DiffLines:

* Fafnir's human form in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' is based on Sebastian from ''Manga/BlackButler'' -- Tohru sent him a manga about a "handsome, but devilish butler" with instructions to base his human form off the character. The comparison is taken even further in the anime, where he ends up having [[Creator/DaisukeOno the same voice actor]] as Sebastian.


* ''Anime/KamisamaMinaraiHimitsuNoCocotama'''s main protagonist, Kokoro, is Tanpopo from the ''VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}}'' movie with a different eye and jacket color.

* ''500 Manga Creatures'', a book that purported to provide manga clipart, might as well have been named "300 Manga Creatures Plus 200 Potential Lawsuits from Game Freak" thanks to its inclusion of somewhat obvious examples of this trope applied to the Pokémon franchise. Kyogre, Dratini, Dragonair, Zapdos, Shuckle, Metang, Metagross, Shroomish, Swablu, and Bagon are just the most blatantly obvious ones.

* The basic story of ''Anime/BurstAngel'' takes place TwentyMinuitesIntoTheFuture, in a CrapsackWorld, where the main character (a ReiAyanamiExpy no less) pilots a HumongousMecha.

* Non Manaka from ''[[VideoGame/PriPara [=PriPara=]]]]'' is very similar to Onpu Segawa from ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi''. Both have purple hair and eyes, a small ponytail on the right side of their hair with a green hairtie, and seemed mysterious to the other characters in their respective series when they were introduced.

* Since the distinction between copyright free monsters and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' originals would remain obscure to laymen for several more years, ''Manga/{{Bastard}}'''s manga originally featured a Beholder. After getting complaints from TSR's Japanese division the comic's supervisor Mr. Suzuki profusely apologized. The monster was slightly altered with comical arms and legs and renamed the "Suzuki Dogezaemon" for the collected volume. Dogeza meaning "apologizing on hands and knees," the incident gained some entertaining notoriety.
