* ''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]].

* The iPhone ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' clone ''Super K.O. Boxing 2'' features a boxer named Shogun. This boxer is actually from New York City, and is a ScaryBlackMan rather than an oriental. It makes little sense unless you've seen ''Film/TheLastDragon''. And in case you didn't already figure out that he was Sho'Nuff with the SerialNumbersFiledOff, one of his moves causes his boxing gloves to glow.

* The NintendoDS fighting game ''VideoGame/WindyXWindam'' has character designs that are heavily based on ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Big is basically Potemkin minus his gigantic gauntlet; swordsman Kirikou is Ky Kiske with fire abilities instead of lightning; and Jack and Stin are clones of Slayer and Bridget, respectively.

** ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' marines are a pretty obvious copy of ''Warhammer40k'' Space Marines (as are Marauders and Firebats to some extent). The zerg bear a pretty heavy resemblance to the Tyranids, but there's something of ''Franchie/{{Alien}}'' in there too.

* If it's possible for a ''series'' to have a CaptainErsatz, then ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvaQbntJ4Yw&feature=related H.A.V.E. Online]]'' (known in America as ''Microvolts'') a Korean online multiplayer shooter, is this in artistic tone to ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' (The gameplay of both are pretty dissimilar actually - H.A.V.E. Online is not class based, and is in 3rd person view). The choreography in the trailer is also pretty blatantly copied. Some people were not happy, to say the least -- though once the original outrage had passed they were a little more forgiving. It also has its own ripoff of LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya. Ironically, [[http://www.haruhisuzumiya.net/2011/03/27/haruhi-suzumiya-in-online-shooter-toy-wars/ the Japanese version of the game has the real Haruhi]].
