** ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' (of the SpaghettiWestern genre), with some ''Franchise/StarWars'' and Creator/JohnWoo thrown into the mix. However, since ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' started syndication in 2002 and ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' in 1998, it would be more accurate to say that ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' is ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' meets zombie horror and conspiracy theory movies.

** ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' meets ''Franchise/LupinIII''.
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' is ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'' meets ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', as directed by Creator/TimBurton.
** And so is ''Manga/SoulEater''. The biggest difference being that ''Manga/SoulEater'' goes on and off anti-depressants and caffeine, while ''Manga/DGrayMan'' hasn't touched either in years.
*** Alternatively, ''Manga/SoulEater'' is ''Manga/ShamanKing'' meets ''Literature/HarryPotter'' with a dash of Creator/TimBurton for good measure.

* ''euphoria'' is ''Gantz'' meets ''A Serbian Film''.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'' is ''Manga/RaveMaster'' meets ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' meets ''Manga/OnePiece''.

* ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'' is ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' meets UsefulNotes/FormulaOne, where the race cars are equipped with AI naviagations a la ''Series/KnightRider''.

*** ''Chouja Reideen'' is ''{{Anime/Raideen}}'' meets ''Brave Command Dagwon'' (same staff).
* ''Anime/GatchamanCrowds'': Despite having the name ''Gatchaman'', it's really more like ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' meets Website/{{Facebook}} and/or ''Anime/SummerWars''.
** The Gatchaman Crew themselves are somewhere between {{Sentai}} and [[MagicalGirl Magical Girls]]; the conflict between Hajime and Sugane largely reflects that.
* ''Literature/{{Gate}}'': Basically Franchise/StargateVerse meets MedievalEuropeanFantasy with a dash of TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse. And perhaps a tiny bit of Literature/TheSalvationWar in there as well...
* ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'' is ''Manga/GetterRobo'' meets ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' meets ''Anime/VanDread'' meets neo-paganism.

* The [[ShowWithinAShow Film Within A Film]] of ''Anime/Gundam00AWakeningOfTheTrailblazer'' can only be described as ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' meets ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''. It's just that [[MundaneMadeAwesome awesome]] and [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hilarious]].

** Or ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' meets [[ShonenDemographic Shonen]]
* ''Anime/GunXSword'' has been dubbed "''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' with giant robots." It's like the love child of the SpaceWestern and the HumongousMecha genre, with maybe a dash of ''Film/TrueGrit''.
** More likely, ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' meets ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' - with HumongousMecha!
* ''{{Manga/Guyver}}'' is the "DarkerAndEdgier biological mutant Tokusatsu" aspects of ''Film/ShinKamenRiderPrologue'' with the "unsuspecting passer-by accidentally becomes the hero" aspect of ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'', in animated form.
* ''{{Manga/Green Blood}}'' is Film/GangsOfNewYork meets {{Film/Unforgiven}} meets Manga/{{Golgo 13}}.
* When the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' novels were licensed, [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer poor advertising]] hilariously and inaccurately described the series as "''Series/HannahMontana'' meets ''Series/{{Heroes}}''". ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' meets ''Literature/SnowCrash'' might be better.
** Justified, it was promoted in such in order to attract more US consumers to the light novel market.
** It also meets ''Literature/GoodOmens'' and ''Film/TheMatrix'' on its way.
** It also meets Dan Simmons' ''Literature/HyperionCantos'', considering the book actually influences the story.
*** ''Manga/HaruhiChan'' is regular Haruhi injected with ''Anime/LuckyStar'' and more caffeine.
** What about ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' meets ''Literature/TheBible''?
** How about ''Series/DoctorWho'' meets ''Series/StargateSG1'' and ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', [[HighSchoolAU in a high school?]]

* ''Anime/{{Kaiba}}'': The art style can best be described as ''Manga/AstroBoy'' meets ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' with a hint of ''Literature/TheLittlePrince''.
* From the page here, ''Manga/KaitouSaintTail'' sounds like "''Manga/SailorMoon'' meets ''Franchise/SlyCooper''". This may be inaccurate.
* ''Anime/KaitouTenshiTwinAngel: Kyunkyun Tokimeki Paradise!!'': "If you ever wondered what it would be like if Franchise/SailorMoon had to battle [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Team Rocket]] for 7 Manga/{{Dragon Ball}}s, now you know."

* ''ComicBook/{{Katana}}'' is ''Manga/XxxHolic'' meets [[KatanasAreJustBetter Japanese swords]].
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' started out with Mafia meeting ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' reading ''Literature/TheLittlePrince'', then it got adopted by Shonen Jump who somehow saw fit to raise it with conspicuous amount of HoYay. Recently it started playing ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' with the child of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' (who got married after resolving their differences).
* ''Manga/KatteNiKaizo'': ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'' meets ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' (it's also from [[Creator/KojiKumeta the same]] {{Mangaka}} as the latter), although it predates both series. So it's essentially ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'' and ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' before they broke up.
* The manga ''Manga/KazeHikaru'' can be described as ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'' meets ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles''.
* Similarly, the page for ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' makes it look like "''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' + ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' -- CrapsackWorld". Once again, possibly inaccurate.
** Or ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' meets ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''.

** Alternatively, ''Literature/GulliversTravels'' meets ''Film/ABoyAndHisDog'' and goes TrueNeutral.

* ''Franchise/LupinTheThird'' is ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}'' meets ''Film/JamesBond''.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' can be easily described as ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' meets ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}''. Alternatively, the first two seasons are ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' meets ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek'', and the third season is more like ''Sailor Moon'' meets ''[[Series/DetroitOneEightSeven Detroit 1-8-7]]''.
* ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' is effectively ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' meets ''Film/TopGun''.
** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', meanwhile, can be seen as ''Film/TopGun'' meets ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' meets ''Franchise/StarTrek'' meets ''Series/HannahMontana'' ([[Anime/{{Macross7}} Not the first time a pop singer motif was used in Macross, mind.]])
* ''Anime/{{Madlax}}'': ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' and''Film/ThelmaAndLouise'' had a kid. An animated one. It's babysat by ''Film/GosfordPark'' and spends a lot of time hanging out with that weird [[Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov Karamazov]] kid down the lane. No, really.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has been (inaccurately, due to intentional GenreShift) described as "''Literature/HarryPotter'' meets ''Manga/LoveHina''." But it was more like ''Manga/HunterxHunter'' meets ''Manga/LoveHina'', but with magic. But now, it can be described more as ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' meets ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', with some ''Manga/DragonBall'' in the mix, and some bonus FanService on top. All the while, having the cast of a HaremSeries.
** Once [[CrazyAwesome Jack Rakan]] shows up, one can add a dollop of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' to the mix.
** So, [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/31826 this guy]] could get some money out of it?
** The magic world arc even starts mixing in bits of [[spoiler: ''Film/TheMatrix'' and ''Film/TotalRecall1990'', what with the Magic World being an artificially created world and everything...]]
** ShowWithinAShow ''Biblion'' seems to be something akin to ''Anime/PrettyCure'' meets ''Anime/ReadOrDie''.
* ''Manga/MahouShoujoSite'' is ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' meets ''Manga/DeathNote''.
* ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' is for all intents and purposes ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' meets ''Literature/FoucaultsPendulum''.
** Alternatively, ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' meets ''Film/{{Highlander}}'' with a bit of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}''.
* ''Manga/MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'': ''Manga/BlackButler'' meets ''Literature/HowlsMovingCastle'' meets ''Film/Beetlejuice''.
* ''Manga/MakaiOuji'': ''Anime/BlackButler'' meets ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' meets ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' ... with slightly less HoYay.
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' is ''[[Anime/{{Gigantor}} Tetsujin 28-go]]'' meets ''Anime/AstroBoy'' meets ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''.
** And ''ShinMazingerZero'' is ''Anime/MazingerZ'' meets ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. And the first arc may be described like the ''original'' ''Anime/MazingerZ'' manga meets ''Anime/EndOfEvangelion'' (aka, UnbuiltTrope meets {{Deconstruction}}).
* ''Anime/MDGeist'' is ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS'' meets ''Manga/ViolenceJack'' meets ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'': ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' - ''GiantBugs'' + ''SuperRobot''×(''{{Cynicism}}'' + ''{{Realism}}'')
* Another ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise: ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]''. ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets... guess what: ''Manga/DragonBall''.
** More like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', to be honest.
** Or ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''VideoGame/PunchOut''
** ''Film/RobotJox'' meets ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''
* With the First Generation finished, it's safe to say that ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'' is ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico''; you could also argue that Age is ''Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam'' meets ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' with a hint of ''VideoGame/RedFaction'' for good measure.
** As the story progresses it becomes more like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''Franchise/StarWars'', with its multi-generational storyline, pilots with Jedi-like reflexes and perception and its characters occasionally flirting with the dark side.
* The first few episodes of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'' are like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' (The Strike is the original RX-78 (White/Blue Hero Gundam), Aegis is Epyon (Red Transforming Gundam), Blitz is Deathscythe (Black Cloaking Gundam), Buster is Heavyarms ({{BFG}} Gundam), and Duel is Sandrock (Semi-normal but heavily-armored Gundam). AS for the rest of the mecha expies:
** Freedom = [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam Double X]] + [[{{Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91}} Gundam Formula 91]].
*** Strike Freedom = Freedom + [[{{Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack}} Hi-Nu Gundam]] (from the novel adaptation, ''Beltorchika's Children'') + [[{{Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz}} Wing Gundam Zero Custom]].

** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' is ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' meets ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic''.
* Meanwhile, ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' actually ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' meets ''Manga/DeathNote''; or, if you want to be more accurate, ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' meets ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' with [[AGodAmI Light Yagami]] thrown in for good measure. (Incidentally, ''Gundam 00'' is from the same people who also brought you ''Anime/CodeGeass''.)
** I thought it was ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' meets ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic''.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' is essentially ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''WorldMasterpieceTheater''.

** Part 1 can be described as ''Anime/NinjaScroll'' meets {{Hunter x Hunter}} meets ''Manga/DragonBall'', and part 2 as ''Anime/NinjaScroll'' meets ''Manga/DragonBallZ''.
** The series can also be summed up as ''Manga/{{Ninku}}'' meets ''Literature/HarryPotter'' meets ''Manga/DragonBallZ''.

* ''Anime/NeoHumanCasshern'': ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'' meets ''Franchise/KamenRider''.

* ''Manga/OnaniMasterKurosawa'' is ''Manga/DeathNote'' starring [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Glenn Quagmire]] who then gets abducted and replaced with [[Literature/TheCatcherInTheRye Holden Caulfield]]. In other words, It's Manga/DeathNote with ''fapping''.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** ''Manga/DragonBall'' meets ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' meets the ''Literature/LandOfOz'' with lots of [[Main/WidgetSeries widgety-ness]].
** ''Manga/DragonBall'' meets ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' meets ''Film/TheAdventuresOfBaronMunchausen''.

* ''Anime/PaniPoniDash'' can be summed up as the bastard lovechild of ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' and ''Manga/ExcelSaga''.

* ''Anime/PlasticMemories'' is ''Film/BladeRunner'' meets ''Manga/{{Chobits}}''.

However, since ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' started syndication in 2002 and ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' in 1998, it would be more accurate to say that ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' is ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' meets zombie horror and conspiracy theory movies.

* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' is ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'' meets ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', as directed by Creator/TimBurton.
** And so is ''Manga/SoulEater''. The biggest difference being that ''Manga/SoulEater'' goes on and off anti-depressants and caffeine, while ''Manga/DGrayMan'' hasn't touched either in years.
*** Alternatively, ''Manga/SoulEater'' is ''Manga/ShamanKing'' meets ''Literature/HarryPotter'' with a dash of Creator/TimBurton for good measure.

*** ''Chouja Reideen'' is ''{{Anime/Raideen}}'' meets ''Brave Command Dagwon'' (same staff).
* ''Anime/GatchamanCrowds'': Despite having the name ''Gatchaman'', it's really more like ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' meets Website/{{Facebook}} and/or ''Anime/SummerWars''.
** The Gatchaman Crew themselves are somewhere between {{Sentai}} and [[MagicalGirl Magical Girls]]; the conflict between Hajime and Sugane largely reflects that.
* ''Literature/{{Gate}}'': Basically Franchise/StargateVerse meets MedievalEuropeanFantasy with a dash of TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse. And perhaps a tiny bit of Literature/TheSalvationWar in there as well...
* ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'' is ''Manga/GetterRobo'' meets ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' meets ''Anime/VanDread'' meets neo-paganism.

** Or ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' meets [[ShonenDemographic Shonen]]
* ''Anime/GunXSword'' has been dubbed "''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' with giant robots." It's like the love child of the SpaceWestern and the HumongousMecha genre, with maybe a dash of ''Film/TrueGrit''.
** More likely, ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' meets ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' - with HumongousMecha!
* ''{{Manga/Guyver}}'' is the "DarkerAndEdgier biological mutant Tokusatsu" aspects of ''Film/ShinKamenRiderPrologue'' with the "unsuspecting passer-by accidentally becomes the hero" aspect of ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'', in animated form.
* ''{{Manga/Green Blood}}'' is Film/GangsOfNewYork meets {{Film/Unforgiven}} meets Manga/{{Golgo 13}}.
* When the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' novels were licensed, [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer poor advertising]] hilariously and inaccurately described the series as "''Series/HannahMontana'' meets ''Series/{{Heroes}}''". ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' meets ''Literature/SnowCrash'' might be better.
** Justified, it was promoted in such in order to attract more US consumers to the light novel market.
** It also meets ''Literature/GoodOmens'' and ''Film/TheMatrix'' on its way.
** It also meets Dan Simmons' ''Literature/HyperionCantos'', considering the book actually influences the story.
*** ''Manga/HaruhiChan'' is regular Haruhi injected with ''Anime/LuckyStar'' and more caffeine.
** What about ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' meets ''Literature/TheBible''?

Alternatively, the first two seasons are ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' meets ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek'', and the third season is more like ''Sailor Moon'' meets ''[[Series/DetroitOneEightSeven Detroit 1-8-7]]''.
* ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' is effectively ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' meets ''Film/TopGun''.
** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', meanwhile, can be seen as ''Film/TopGun'' meets ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' meets ''Franchise/StarTrek'' meets ''Series/HannahMontana'' ([[Anime/{{Macross7}} Not the first time a pop singer motif was used in Macross, mind.]])
* ''Anime/{{Madlax}}'': ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' and''Film/ThelmaAndLouise'' had a kid. An animated one. It's babysat by ''Film/GosfordPark'' and spends a lot of time hanging out with that weird [[Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov Karamazov]] kid down the lane. No, really.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has been (inaccurately, due to intentional GenreShift) described as "''Literature/HarryPotter'' meets ''Manga/LoveHina''." But it was more like ''Manga/HunterxHunter'' meets ''Manga/LoveHina'', but with magic. But now, it can be described more as ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' meets ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', with some ''Manga/DragonBall'' in the mix, and some bonus FanService on top. All the while, having the cast of a HaremSeries.
** Once [[CrazyAwesome Jack Rakan]] shows up, one can add a dollop of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' to the mix.
** So, [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/31826 this guy]] could get some money out of it?
** The magic world arc even starts mixing in bits of [[spoiler: ''Film/TheMatrix'' and ''Film/TotalRecall1990'', what with the Magic World being an artificially created world and everything...]]
** ShowWithinAShow ''Biblion'' seems to be something akin to ''Anime/PrettyCure'' meets ''Anime/ReadOrDie''.
* ''Manga/MahouShoujoSite'' is ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' meets ''Manga/DeathNote''.
* ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' is for all intents and purposes ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' meets ''Literature/FoucaultsPendulum''.

* ''Manga/MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'': ''Manga/BlackButler'' meets ''Literature/HowlsMovingCastle'' meets ''Film/Beetlejuice''.
* ''Manga/MakaiOuji'': ''Anime/BlackButler'' meets ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' meets ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' ... with slightly less HoYay.
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' is ''[[Anime/{{Gigantor}} Tetsujin 28-go]]'' meets ''Anime/AstroBoy'' meets ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''.
** And ''ShinMazingerZero'' is ''Anime/MazingerZ'' meets ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. And the first arc may be described like the ''original'' ''Anime/MazingerZ'' manga meets ''Anime/EndOfEvangelion'' (aka, UnbuiltTrope meets {{Deconstruction}}).
* ''Anime/MDGeist'' is ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS'' meets ''Manga/ViolenceJack'' meets ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''.

** Or ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''VideoGame/PunchOut''
** ''Film/RobotJox'' meets ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''
* With the First Generation finished, it's safe to say that ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'' is ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico''; you could also argue that Age is ''Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam'' meets ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' with a hint of ''VideoGame/RedFaction'' for good measure.
** As the story progresses it becomes more like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''Franchise/StarWars'', with its multi-generational storyline, pilots with Jedi-like reflexes and perception and its characters occasionally flirting with the dark side.
* The first few episodes of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'' are like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' (The Strike is the original RX-78 (White/Blue Hero Gundam), Aegis is Epyon (Red Transforming Gundam), Blitz is Deathscythe (Black Cloaking Gundam), Buster is Heavyarms ({{BFG}} Gundam), and Duel is Sandrock (Semi-normal but heavily-armored Gundam). AS for the rest of the mecha expies:
** Freedom = [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam Double X]] + [[{{Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91}} Gundam Formula 91]].

(Incidentally, ''Gundam 00'' is from the same people who also brought you ''Anime/CodeGeass''.)
