* The first couple of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episodes had CutawayGag[=s=] not unlike its more popular sister show ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Since the premise and art style are already very similar, those kind of jokes were banned to make the show more unique. More prominently, ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', which could be described as "''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', but black".

* Two years after the success of the original ''VideoGame/EarthDefenseForce'', series publisher D3 released ''Simple 2000 Vol. 78: The Great Space War''(aka: ''Space War Attack''), a flight action game that, like ''EDF'', has the player fighting a variety of giant bubs, Kaijus and alien aircrafts and with a similar goofy and low-budget vibes. It is unclear if ''Space War Attack'' is officily meant to be a EDF spin-off (The game has a different developer[[note]]While the main ''EDF'' games are developed by Sandlot, ''Space War Attack'' was made by Bit Town, the developers of the ''VideoGame/{{Sidewinder}}'' series, from which the game recycles a lot of assets[[/note]] and, beside a brief mention of the Earth Defense Force in the intro, no ''EDF'' branding or any recognizable characters or elements from the series) but the intent to reuse the formula is obvious enough.


* Creator/DouglasAdams lifted plot points from two ''Series/DoctorWho'' arcs that he wrote, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath City of Death]]" and the unfinished storyline "[[DoctorWhoS17E6Shada Shada]]" to make his novel ''Literature/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency''.

* Doing this InUniverse is the plot of ''Film/BillAndTedFaceTheMusic''. After years of failing to come up with the song that will unite the world, Bill and Ted decide to just travel through time to a point where they've already written the song, then copy it down and release it in the present, effectively jury-rigging a StableTimeLoop.


* The CutSong "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG_0HRYUqyM Proud of Your Boy]]" from ''WesternAnimation/{{Aladdin}}'' bears a resemblance to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBa9QlzEWA4 "Part of Your World"]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaid1'', which itself is a self-plagiarism of Ashman and [[Music/AlanMenken Menken's]] "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouLiQ7KhmYU Somewhere That's Green]]" from ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors''. Reportedly, when writing "Part of Your World" they jokingly called it "Somewhere That's Dry."

* ''Viper Phase 1'' is this towards ''VideoGame/{{Raiden}}'', except [[RecycledInSpace set in space]]. Both were made by Seibu Kaihatsu, and it shows. How so? It got an UpdatedRerelease to make it more in line with the ''Raiden'' games, not to mention the UsefulNotes/PlayStation port of the first game getting the former's soundtrack as an unlockable.


* Creator/TerryPratchett was so pleased with himself for coming up with this joke that he used it in ''two'' Discworld books. To wit: a flour cart crashes into a heggler's cart and also a milk cart, resulting in a huge mess. In ''Discworld/NightWatch'', a character comments that they could make an enormous cake. In ''Discworld/TheTruth'', Sacharrissa uses "CITY'S BIGGEST CAKE MIX-UP" as a headline. William de Worde remarks on how this is [[SelfDeprecation just the right amount of unfunny]] to be a newspaper joke. Major Clive Mountjoy-Steadfast merely snaps "[[LamePunReaction Tom!]]"

* Baloo the bear from ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' became so popular that Disney hired the character's voice actor Phil Harris back to play an {{expy}} of the character in their next two films. Thomas O'Malley in ''WesternAnimation/TheAristocats'' is identical to Baloo personality-wise but isn't the same species, while Little John from ''Disney/RobinHood'' has a different personality but looks almost exactly like Baloo (save for being orange rather than gray).
* In ''Disney/RobinHood'', Little John and Lady Kluck dance like Baloo and King Louie in ''Disney/TheJungleBook''. Robin and Marian dance like Duchess and Thomas in ''WesternAnimation/TheAristocats''. Marian dances with a pig, an owl, a rabbit and a dog in a manner similar to the dance that Snow White and the Dwarfs do in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''. An elephant sounding off like a trumpet is stopped by Lady Kluck, like Colonel Hathi stopping a Jungle Patrol elephant in ''Disney/TheJungleBook''. Sir Hiss uses HypnoticEyes similar to Kaa in ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.
* A chase scene in ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' between Baloo, King Louie and Mowgli is similar to a chase scene with Mole, Water Rat, Mr. Winkie and the Weasels in ''Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad''. The wolf cubs move together and wag their tails like the puppies in ''WesternAnimation/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians''. Mowgli returns to the wolf den, and gets licked by wolves, like Arthur returns to the castle, and gets licked by dogs, in ''WesternAnimation/TheSwordInTheStone''. The elephant Colonel Hathi is based on the elephant Goliath I from the animated short ''WesternAnimation/GoliathII'', where some elephant scenes are taken, including the elephants stopping and piling up.
* In ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'', the fanfare following "Painting the Roses Red" is the same as from ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''.
