Nothing is created, everything is copied
Yikes. The two examples I can think of are Johnny Test and Winx Club.
For Johnny Test, it's pretty damn obvious, that a lot of them call it a Dexter's Lab rip-off, when in reality, there are only slight resemblences. Serioulsy, are they blind?
As for Winx Club, I've heard, that people call it a Sailor Moon or a MLP rip-off, when both are false. One, the creator Iginio Straffi said, that Winx Club was inspired by Sailor Moon and two: How in the mother of ass is a show, which was released in 2004 a ripoff to a show, released in 2010????? That doesn't any sense...
Both examples are infuriating for me. Though the first one really pisses me off more.
I swear these days you only have to, say have a cat in your show, and it's a rip-off of a completely different show that also has a cat in it.
Not to mention the things that are actually inspired by the things they are "ripping-off".
Oh yeah, some people actually think that anime series are rip-offs of other anime series just because they're anime.
It seems the most popular reason people don't know what rip-off even means is that they don't understand there are genres.
It annoys me when people say that Sengoku Basara is a rip-off of Samurai Warriors just because both games have characters named after real Japanese historical figures, are both beat 'em up games, and both take place in the same time period.
"The Thundermans rip-off The Incredibles"
"The Loud House rip-off Peanuts"
"Welcome to the Wayne rip-off Gravity Fal--"
SHUT UP!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!! THIS IS WHY MODERN NICKELODEON HATERS HAS ALOT OF DUMB REASONS TO HATE SHOWS!!
(also, blame Vailskibum94..)
It makes me so damn mad when someone says "Disney makes nothing but ripoffs" I'm just like, "Fucker, it's called an adaptation!"
sorry for the language...
