    Default Some animes that rip off of Miyazaki's animes.

    Xenosaga comes to mind (in both the game and TV show). In the last episode of the show (or the last part of the game) there is a space station (Protomerkaba) that in the end is set to "detachment" (a.k.a. self destruct, in most sci-fi films). And it literally falls apart one piece at a time. Then at the LAST moment the goodguys get cargoship Elsa out of there before it completely destroys them.
    Now for the Miyazaki connection. There is a similar floating fortress called Laputa, In the end it is set to self destruct with the "destruction" spell, and it falls apart in a VERY similar manner to Protomerkaba's destruction in Xenosaga. Then at the LAST moment before the falling debris crushes them, the Dola Gang (sort of like anti-heroes here, they are "good" pirates) escapes like the crew of illegally modified scavenger ship Elsa (who are themselves sort of like pirates picking up useful ship debris after battles) escapes in a VERY similar "close call" manner.

    Let me also look at Escaflowne. You have Hitomi ending up in a weird place she's unfamiliar with as Sheeta does in Castle In The Sky. You have Hitomi with a long elliptical crystal necklace, but Sheeta also has a similar necklace with elliptical (though her's is more teardrop shaped) crystal. Both have mysterious powers that must be tapped. Both run into a previously unknown male counterpart who they go on adventures with to achieve some ultimate goal. The Zibach floating fortress in Escaflowne is much like the castle Laputa in terms of its levitation and being a big base where one can launch attacks from.

    Lastly lets look at Evangelion. Several of the Angels have eyes that can fire very powerful laser beams. So can the "Giant Warrior" / "God Warrior" from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (but its beam fires from its mouth). Also these Warriors are huge, just like the Angels. Also the EVAs themselves are not entirely mechanical. They have mostly biological components. Just like the Robots from Castle In The Sky. When you see inside the first captured Robot at the fort, the part where the arm is broken off, you can see inside. But you don't see wires. Instead you see what looks like tendons and guts! Not to mention its eye doubles as a laser gun (much like the Angels in Evangelion). Also in one of the last battle scenes of End of Evangelion (before it just gets all crazy) you see the the Mass Produced EVA series deploy wings and fly, just like the Robot the all of a sudden deploys wings and flys in Castle In The Sky. And the way the Robots swarm around the army's ship and completely destroy it in Castle In The Sky is similar to the way the EVA's swarm around Asuka's EVA02 (now out of battery power) in End of Evangelion, and completely destroy it.

    There is a difference between similar and rip-off's.

    That's just like me going "there's a gun in this anime and a similar gun is in another anime, that's a total rip off"

    Well Miyazaki is a well respected creator across the globe. So it's only natural for some people to get an idea or two from him. I'm not sure if you've notice but both anime AND movies are all usually based off of something else in some way shape or form. Rarely are they someone's own original idea. Sometimes you can't even tell what they have been inspired from since it's so minor but with someone like Miyazaki who it's so popular you can catch it more easily. In the anime world people re-use ideas sometimes and it's fine and no big deal. You either like it or you don't it's that simple.

    Also a rip-off is when something is nearly EXACTLY like something else from head to toe almost but usually worse in terms of art etc. Some even go as far as to give it a similar name to what it had been a rip-off of.

    Just about everything has already been done. It's hardly a rip-off with one or two similarities, because the odds are good what it's "ripping off" was in turn "ripping it off" elsewhere.

    Miyazaki had boats in Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. Just like Code Geass! In fact, the design was very similar and they both seemed to be used for transportation on water!

    Miyazaki is such a hack. Ripping off of Goro Taniguchi's brilliant ideas in a poor attempt to imitate the master. /sarcasm

    Hey, there wasn't not-so-realistic physics in every Gundam series, and not so-realistic-physics in Miyazaki's movies! What a rip off!

    Oh! Don't forget in Toradora! and Lovely Complex there is a love comedy between two characters and one is insanely short -___- rip-off? I think so......

    I didn't mean "rip-off" here in a negative way. I meant I was pointing out very specific scenes that seemed to obviously not only be unoriginal consepts, but actually SPECIFICALLY seemed to be heavilly influenced by Miyazaki's works (as one person pointed out, he indeed has had a profound impact and influence in the anime community).
