- Plagiarism and Inspiration in VGMs Thread by rebooter23 at 1:06 PM EDT on May 31, 2017
- Let's collect musical pieces and other sources our beloved VGM composers got influenced by, copied or plagiarized.
The superstar Koji Kondo got heavily influenced by these tracks:
Super Mario World Overworld Theme
Matt Bianco - Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed
Super Mario 64 - Dire, Dire Docks
Intro to "The Adventures of Milo and Otis" (at 3:21, it's the second part of the Dire, Dire Docks Melody)
What's The Buzz from Jesus Christ Superstar

- Heh, don't know how I went so long without hearing these pointed out!
I know there's a lot in ZUN's stuff, the only one I recognized was a Neon Genesis Evangelion reference (though others have claimed it comes from elsewhere):
Subterranean Animism Satori Maiden ~ 3rd Eye
She said "don't make others suffer for your personal hatred" (an arrangement of the NERV theme)
It could just be a common phrase, I guess.
The Skullgirls Opening is the main one people point to.
Even Depot in GoldenEye has a little of it.

- To be honest I think it's pretty unfair to call any of these examples plagiarism - a lot of these riffs are fairly accessible and not exclusive to the tracks mentioned.

- Ghignarda, please tell me where anybody claimed somebody has plagiarized anything. All I ever did was to say that Kondo got heavily influenced. I never discounted his works.

- Well, it being the first word in the title probably is involved in that impression.
I didn't mean to imply plagiarism either, I have the word "reference" stuck in there but maybe too subtly.

- I think she or he took the "and" in the title logically
