** Don't forget the Wrestling/RandySavage clone Slim Jim Mr. Mann from ''Fire Pro Wrestling'' on the GameBoyAdvance! Actually, that was probably one of those rare instances where a Fire Pro Wrestling game got an English translation that was [[GoodBadTranslation intentionally silly]].

** Andore from ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' is obviously modeled after Wrestling/AndreTheGiant. When he appeared in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: 2nd Impact'', his name was changed to Hugo, presumably to avoid any likeness infringement, although he was still called "Andore" in ''Final Fight: Revenge'' and ''Streetwise'', which both came afterward.

Eventually his name was confirmed as "Hugo Andore" and his pallet swaps were his brothers.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has Odin, Laslow, and Selena, three characters who look and act exactly like Owain, Inigo, and Severa from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Except not - they're the real deal, all using assumed names.]]]] There's also Rhajat, a reincarnation of Tharja, and Asugi, who has no excuse for his resemblance to Gaius.

* ''VideoGame/TheMastersFighter'', a 1997 FightingGame for the UsefulNotes/{{Playstation}}, is notorious for being considered one of the worst fighting games of all time, due to unresponsive controls, HitboxDissonance and poor graphics, but the main reason is, the characters designs were plagiarised from sprites from other games (The only possible exception is Gamp), and some of them are even fusions of two characters:
** Azarl is like a combination of John Crawley from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' and Guile from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', he even wears the same exact outfit and colors as Guile.
** Bill seems to be copied from Jack Turner from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'', with a few moves of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Zangief]].
** J resembles Mai Shiranui from ''VideoGame/FatalFury'', complete with [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Benimaru's]] hair.
** Kain, the BigBad, is like an old version of Geese Howard, following his appearance in the second ''VideoaGame/ArtOfFighting'',
** Kang Te Kong seems to be [[VideoaGame/ArtOfFighting Lee Pai Long]], with [[HeadSwap the head of]] [[VideoGame/FatalFury Tung Fu Rue]].
** Long-Way, the local BruceLeeClone, seems to be Dragon from the ''VideoGame/WorldHeroes'' series.
** Mishell is clearly Yuri Sakazaki from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'', apparently dressed as [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Leona]], or [[VideoGame/MetalSlug Fio]].
** Mr. Death is a blatant copy of Ryo Sakazaki from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'', in sprites and moveset.
** Did you know that UsefulNotes/YagyuJubei from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' appears in this game...? No, wait... looks like his actual name is Sakamoto.
** T-660, the FinalBoss, looks suspiciously similar to Choi Bounge from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''.
** Takuya, the (apparent) protagonist, seems to be [[VideoGame/FatalFury Kim Kaphwan]] with some moves from [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Ryo Sakazaki]].
