* Of every character that is a ReiAyanamiExpy Jo of ''Anime/BurstAngel'' may be the closest to the real deal. Take a look at [[http://www.jasms.de/anime/b_tenshi/jo.jpg Rei...]]whoops, that's actually Jo, which should give an idea [[http://www.superbwallpapers.com/anime/rei-ayanami-neon-genesis-evangelion-9052/ how close the resemblance is.]]

* In ''Anime/PlasticMemories'', Tsukasa's [[https://animewithsky.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/horriblesubs-plastic-memories-05-720p-mkv_snapshot_22-06_2015-05-04_01-29-04.png software destruction gun]] is essentially the [[http://psychopass.wikia.com/wiki/The_Dominator 45MW.TRG Dominator]] from ''Anime/PsychoPass''. The main difference is that while a Dominator can paralyze or blow a target into LudicrousGibs, Tsukasa's device only downloads a virus to a Giftia that instantly crashes his/her functions and cannot harm humans.

* ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'' has a character named Mr. Ral, who looks like - and has [[RoleReprisal the same]] [[Creator/MasashiHirose voice actor]] as - Ramba Ral, an EnsembleDarkhorse from the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''. The reason he's not actually Ramba Ral is because ''Build Fighters'' is set in an AlternateContinuity where ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' is [[RecursiveCanon a work of fiction.]]



* ''Manga/SgtFrog'' has, among others, Baio and Ouka Nishizawa, whose younger selves are heavily based on Ryu and Chun-Li from ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', although in the present their lives are radically different.
** Other examples Eddy Honda, one of Ouka's opponents in her street fighting days, to Edmond Honda from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''; a monster called "Ningen", with appearance and background nearly identical to Adam from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and an unnamed alien judge who looked identical to the judge from Phoenix Wright, save for green skin and an antenna on his forehead.



* Almost all the characters from the hentai anime and videogame ''Kuro Inu'' are ''composite'' Ersatzs from almost every character from ''Anime/QueensBlade'':
** Alicia from both Leina and Elina.
** Kaguya from both Tomoe (personality and the fact she's also a {{Miko}}) and Menace (looks).
** Claudia from Claudette, up to being redhead.
** Origa and Cloe from both Echidna and Irma, in terms of closeness, except they're both Dark Elves, compared with Irma, who is human in QB.
** Maia from both Risty (looks) combined with Irma's fighting style (except she use swords than knives)
** Ruu Ruu is ''basically'' Ymir with a different name and species: Both have curls. both belonging to a child-looking species (Halfling and Dwarf, respectively) and both uses axes as weapons: The only thing that makes Ruu Ruu different to Ymir is the fact she have a dog tail and her dressing style.
** Celestine from both Alleyne (being an elf) and Melpha (looks and role)
** Volt, the leader of the titular Kuro Inu (Dark Dog) army is basically [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Guts with a beard]], with ''Griffith's'' personality. Not to mention his name could be an allusion to the fact Guts is normally associated with dogs.
* Sieglinde Jeremiah from ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid'' has a very strong resemblance with ''Franchise/BlackRockShooter'', thanks to her long black GirlishPigtails and black outfits. Both, her leisure suit (which has a hood) and her Barrier Jacket resemble Black Rock Shooter's outfit.
** Translators made a joke about that: "'I am not Black Rock Shooter ;_;'":
--> '''Victoria''': "Hm? Wrong series? Are you lost?"\\
'''Victoria''': (''to a running Sieglinde'') "Don't get lost again anymore, okay?!"\\
'''Sieglinde''': "I wasn't lost!!"



* ''VisualNovel/PrincessLover'' has Sylvia van Hossen, who is almost a complete clone of Saber of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Even to the point where several fans thought it was her until she was named. The only difference between them seems to be their backstory and Sylvia's much bigger breasts.
** It's not just Sylvia. Charlotte is an Ilya clone, Yuu is heavily based on Sakura, and Seika is a copy of Rin. In fact, it would be safe to say that every character in this anime has drawn inspiration from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.
* ''Anime/SoundOfTheSky'' has been accused of this, what with most of the cast strongly resembling ''Manga/KOn'' characters, plus [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei]] / [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Nagato]].
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP'' has Seiryo Tennan and Amane Kaunaq who are a ShoutOut to Tatewaki Kuno and Akane Tendo of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', including the obsessive stalker-violent tomboy childhood "relationship" to one another.

** In the movie "Anime/FarewellToNostradamus" near the middle when Lupin is channel surfing one of the shows is a cartoon featuring a [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures woodpecker who looks like Plucky Duck chasing a bear who looks like Buster Bunny]] with a mallet.

* ''Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughSpace'' has Takane, who is a carbon copy of Chikane from ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko''--except she is probably not lesbian, at least as far as we know. Their names even rhyme, c'mon that's just too easy. Not to mention [[Anime/CodeGeass the intensely over-dramatic]] AI Leopard, who is, of course, voiced by Creator/JunFukuyama.



* ''Anime/LastExile'''s creators admit that the character Alex Row was heavily based on Anime/CaptainHarlock.
* ''Manga/LostBrain'' has Rei Hiyama, a top student, bored with the world who comes upon a power of some kind and uses it to control and kill people in order to create what he considers an Utopia, where his will is the law. Also ends up playing XanatosSpeedChess against an opposing [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] who is leading the effort to catch him. Very similar to ''Manga/DeathNote'''s Light Yagami.



* Tsukiko Sagi from ''Anime/ParanoiaAgent'' is heavily based, design- and personality-wise, on Osaka from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''.

* ''Anime/AngelBeats'' has Yuri, who looks like a color swapped Haruhi from ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'', only with straight bangs. She leads a group of students with a similar name to the group of students that Haruhi leads (SSS vs SOS) and even acts somewhat like her. Their backgrounds and goals are different, but their characters are pretty much the same otherwise. At least, initially.



* Naruko Anjou of ''Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay'' is basically [[Videogame/DragonQuestVIII Jessica Albert]] wearing modern clothes and living in a modern setting.
* In ''Manga/{{Area88}}'', Yamato Airlines is a stand in for JAL (Japan Airlines).



* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has one of the most famous Captain Ersatz, Orihime Inoue: ''Ushio and Tora'''s Mayuko is probably her long-lost twin sister. Shy and naive behaviour? Check. Second female lead? Check. Amazing supernatural barrier-creating and healing powers? Check. They even share the same ''freaking'' surname.



* ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}''[='=]s Fujibayashi sisters and ''Manga/LuckyStar'''s Hiiragi sisters. Both pairs are twins, both have purple hair, the elder twin is a {{tsundere}}, the younger twin is quiet and reserved, they sport {{Tsurime|Eyes}} and {{Tareme|Eyes}} respectively, both twins' hairstyles resemble their Ersatz counterpart's... Seriously.
** There is one notable difference between these two pairs of twins when it comes to FeminineWomenCanCook: The [[Manga/LuckyStar Hiiragi twins]] play it straight. Tsukasa is a very good chef and is among the only things where her Main/{{Dojikko}} tendencies do not show, and Konata often teases Kagami about her cooking. However, the [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} Fujibayashi sisters]] {{invert|edTrope}} this concept. [[LethalChef Ryou's]] cooking, although it looks good, makes [[TeamPet Botan]] faint in disgust while [[SupremeChef Kyou's]] food is great to the point where [[DeadpanSnarker Tomoya]] is honest about how good it is.



* The title character of ''Manga/{{Kurohime}}'' is a [[DistaffCounterpart gender-flip]] of [[Manga/{{Bastard}} Dark Schneider]].



* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'''s Miia and Centorea are heavily based, design- and personality-wise, on [[Manga/HayateTheCombatButler Hinagiku Katsura]] and [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]], respectively.
