Do I have to explain this? by Foxstar241 Do I have to explain this? by Foxstar241

The definition of rip-off: An inferior copy of something else.

Similar just means it's identical; if it's done poorly, then it IS a rip-off, but if it's done well, it isn't.

someone please tell this to the yuri on ice fandom. at least 75% of the yoi fandom believes love on ice ripped off yoi. nope, the book that love on ice was based on came out long before yoi did. plus, just because a work is about ice skating doesn't mean it ripped off yoi.

This goes to the numerous kart racers that people call "Mario Kart rip-offs." I mean, Mario Kart might've started the kart-racing genre, but that doesn't mean every kart racer is a rip-off of said series.

Some TD fans claim that "6teen is a TDI rip off".

WRONG! 6teen came BEFORE TDI. And if it hadn't been for 6teen, the TD series wouldn't exist.

Most people claim that Butch Hartman's show Danny Phantom ripped off Spider Man. Does Hartman's character share similarities with him? Yes but is he a rip off of a Marvel character? No.

This gets me with just thinking in Soak Speed. I mean, the most known characters are, almost identical to the Wisps from Sonic Colors and Sonic Lost World, yet there are some few differences; though my Soak Speed has some different things, and I wanted to keep it out of the Sonic references, so not even SEGA could accuse me.

Thank you for this. I really need to show this to people who accuse Disney's teamo supremo of being a powerpuff girls ripoff.

As soon as PPG fans got a glimpse of the main protagonists of TS being a trio of kids who are super heros and fight unusual enemies, they just kept screaming that it's a PPG ripoff. -_-

Mega Pokemon and mega digimon come to mind to most to me when it comes to this (even thought its actual called ultra evolution in the Japanese dub version of digimon, and i think its mega in all languages for Pokemon, so its likely that Nintendo where unaware of this but that's just what i think.)

Some people say that Digimon is a Pokemon rip-off but IT'S FUCKING NOT! Just because they're have 'mon' in the title, doesn't mean it's a rip-off. (I love both Digimon and Pokemon) I'm sick of seeing these "Digimon ripping off Pokemon" comments.

I agree! I really didn't find Sonic Lost World to be that hot. At first I thought it was all a coincidence, but it became more prevalent later on.


Don't you dare diss Sonic X! That show is my most favorite anime of all time, and it is nothing like Pokémon and Digimon! Plus, Digimon IS NOT a Ripoff of Pokémon!

If you want a truly terrible Sonic show with a poor plot, you should be hating on Sonic Boom!

I'm really sick of peoples who says "Digimon is rip-off of Pokémon", but Digimon anime is better than Pokémon anime.
Digimon originally created as Tamagotchi for boys by Bandai, but Pokémon originally created as games by Nintendo.

Digimon actually has a plot and a conclusion, and it deals with serious themes like Death, Love, Faith, and War. Plus it has ones who reference stuff like The Chinese Zodiac, the Seven Deadly Sins, The 4 Horsemen of The Apocalypse, and even Satan himself.

Pokémon however is a linear series with the same over-arching plot in every episode, unlike Digimon.

Yep, Digimon has a better plot with sense, protagonists aren't dumb, villians aren't lame.
Pokemon anime series with repetitive plot, lamest or unlikable characters and villians.

This is to all the people who think that Yo-kai Watch is a "ripoff" of Pokémon.

Similarites? Yes.
Exact copy? No.

And I'm going to say this right now-- I actually prefer Yo-kai Watch over Pokémon.

For me I think Yo-Kai Watch is an inspiration of several series:
Pokemon-obvious 
Ben 10-with the whole watch thing
Yu-gi-Oh-the whole concept of demons and mosters thing

I haven't watch Yo-Kai Watch but from what I've seen it kinda looks cool in my opinion of course.  I wouldn't call it a rip-off.

:iconmikethemiidrawer:
MikeTheMiiDrawer Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The idea for Yo-kai Watch is that the Yo-kai make humans cause everyday's problems. If you find yourself eating way too much, or dressed in a way that people will find bizzare, or you squandered your money on useless things, it's a Yo-kai's doing. They're invisible to the naked eye, but with the titular watch you can actually see them. Unlike other "mon" franchises, the Yo-kai want to be your friends rather than being your "slaves" or "pets", if you want to call them that.

This reminds me of how people always said that Starfy was a rip-off of Kirby, which makes absolutely no sense since both Starfy and Kirby were created by Nintendo. :giggle:
