** Skull knight and Void while both of them are creepy [[DemBones skeleton man]] (Void is more fleshy), Skull Knight actually cares for humanity and can see the goodness and dive in humans. Void is different drawing power from the [[TheCorruption worst aspects]] of humanity, he and other God Hand delight in granting lost individuals power so long as they sacrificed anyone close to them. Skull Knight is opposed to Void's idea that nothing can be avoid and that fate isn't always set and is often teaches Guts that he can make a better future for himself, Void believes all who sacrificed are doomed. Skull Knight's hatred of Void mirrors Gut's hatred of Griffith, implying similar events that caused the rift with Guts & Griffith happened in past with Skull Knight & Void.

* ''Manga/MedakaBox'': Besides obvious parallels between the protagonist, Kumagawa is also a dark mirror of Zenkichi, sharing similar traits while sitll appearing to be complete opposites. While Zenkichi is a tsundere, Kumagawa is a compulsive liar. Similarly, they're both attached to some of the most powerful figures in the story; Zenkichi to Medaka, Kumagawa to [[spoiler: Ajimu]]. While Zenkichi doesn't think much his abilities, Kumagawa claims to be epitome of weakness, yet both are some of the most determined people in the series.

** Aaand now [[spoiler:there's Obito as well, since he was explicitly compared to Naruto earlier in the story, before we knew he was a villain. And by villain, we mean the mask wearing Tobi who would've killed a minute old baby and sic a massive demonic fox on a woman weakened from pregnancy if he wasn't stopped. '''Ouch'''. And the parallels just keep on mounting with Obito becoming a Jinchuriki and being revealed that he is also an orphan who never met his parents.]]
*** He is also an evil counterpart for [[spoiler:Kakashi, who went through the same horrific childhood as Obito but ended up making an entirely different choice. Kakashi even openly acknowledges he might have chosen a similar path if not for, oh irony, Obito's own words.]]

** Aaand now [[spoiler:there's Obito as well, since he was explicitly compared to Naruto earlier in the story, before we knew story. Obito bears a dozen similarities to Naruto, he was has uncanny resemblance to Naruto, he has the same dream of becoming Hokage as Naruto, same unrequited love for a villain. girl (Obito with Rin, Naruto with Sakura) and Obito possess the same jealously for the "cool guy" of the team. And by time his villain, we mean the mask wearing Tobi who would've killed a minute old baby and sic a massive demonic fox on a woman weakened from pregnancy if he wasn't stopped. '''Ouch'''. And the parallels just keep on mounting with Obito becoming a Jinchuriki and being revealed that he is also an orphan who never met his parents.]]
Obito sees all these similarities and tries his best to brake Naruto's spirit, like his was broken. But Naruto brings Obito back to the light though the connection they have]].
*** He Obito is also an evil counterpart for [[spoiler:Kakashi, who went through the same horrific childhood as Obito but ended up making an entirely different choice. Kakashi even openly acknowledges he might have chosen a similar path if not for, oh irony, Obito's own words.]]



** And of course Sasuke for Naruto. both them lost their parents and grew up alone the differences balance the similarities: Naruto was a outcast and disliked and mocked by the village, Sasuke was adored and in sympathy from the village for losing his clan. But ultimately Naruto saved the village and won their respect and care. Sasuke on the other hand did his best to destroy the village to try avenge his bother and clan (despite Itachi wanting the opposite). Naruto starting off as embarrassing trouble maker and became the greatest Hokage in ages, Sasuke was a prodigy adored by almost everybody around him and then became a great threat and disappointmen and is outcast from the village at the end of Naruto.



** Buggy the Clown seemed to be introduced as an Evil Counterpart to Luffy; Indeed, their devil fruits are practically opposite in several ways, but similar in others (allow for long range attacking, provide invulnerability to certain kinds of attacks). While Luffy is irrepressibly cheerful, Buggy is constantly aggravated, etc.

** Buggy the Clown seemed to be introduced as an Evil Counterpart to Luffy; Indeed, their devil fruits are practically opposite in several ways, but similar in others (allow for long range attacking, provide invulnerability to certain kinds of attacks). While Luffy is irrepressibly cheerful, Buggy is constantly aggravated, etc. As time goes on Buggy is far less evil than most the Villains in the series so he becomes more a MagnificentBastard at best, Buggy is also very much a counter part to his old friend and rival [[HandicappedBadass Shanks]]. Since bothare positions of great power Buggy is Shichibukai (Warlord of the sea) and Shanks is a Yonko (Emperor) (though Shanks got to that position though talent and effort, Buggy lied and bullshit his way into power).



** But before Blackbeard even showed up in the story, [[ChessMaster Crododile]] was the first shadowy reflection of Luffy. Setting side the fact they're both leaders of a crew of misfits, Crocodile had the same dream of becoming pirate king as Luffy and they even have the same stitch scar-thing under their eyes (except Crcodile goes all cross his face) With that [[https://66.media.tumblr.com/4a9deed7095053e5a638a32b7a873c04/tumblr_n16z3mN5a21ttrzbeo1_500.jpg resemblance]] combined with the fact that Crocodile was apparently the "Luffy of his day" (according to WordOfGod) the similarities between these two are uncanny. It's hinted that Crododile can can see it and tells Luffy that sooner or later his spirit will brake on his voyage same as his. And this is true Luffy became massively depressed when [[spoiler: Ace]]died and almost give up on being the pirate king if had not be for his [[AFriendInNeed friends]]



** Most every BigBad Luffy's encountered along the way was something of an EvilCounterpart with Crocodile being an embittered ruthless [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] that gave up on dreams and Moria revealing that he lost his beloved TrueCompanions in the New World. They seem to act as chilling reminders of what Luffy may become if he doesn't hold onto his dreams and his friends.

* "Manga/{{Berserk]]" has Guts and Griffith who own this trope beautifully and subvert it at the same time, both Guts and Griffith are MasterSwordsmen who came from poor upbringings and became later become infamous/famous across the land. Griffith looked up at the towers and wanted to rule, Guts looked at the cruel [[DarkFantasy environment]] that was his life and wanted to survive until he died in combat. Griffith is the exact opposite of Guts, Griffith is of average height, thin, has long flowing [[MysticalWhiteHair white hair]], no physical scars and wields an elegant sabre, Guts is tall muscular warrior with short black hair, a body full of scars who wields a BFS sword. Griffith wears white [[KnightInShiningArmour amrour]] and has a much more refined style resembling fencing. Guts wears tattered black clothing and, though incredibly skilled, fights like a barbarian winning by any means necessary. In addition they usually have the exact opposite effect on everyone they meet. Most people are [[VillainwithGoodPublicity naturally drawn]] to Griffith upon first meeting him and would die for him without hesitation whereas Guts is usually feared and detested by just about everyone he comes across until they get to know him FireForgedFriends . Guts unhesitatingly chooses to battle his way through enemies, Griffith refrains from excessive participation in combat, preferring to manipulate anyone in his way like a ChessMaster. Griffith is graceful and has noble bearing all things associated with a traditional hero despite actually being a cruel savage downright "rapey" villain (seen most clearly as Femto), Guts is cold and brutal often associated with an archetypal villain (Guts often mistaken for a demon) but is actually More of AntiHero who actually cares for innocent lives (though he never admit it).

** Though they have never met properly, EvilMatriarch Slan can be considered a counterpart to former ActionGril Casca. Both of them are the most prominent (and beautiful) female characters and both them have allied themselves with Griffith at one point and of course both them had a strong love for main character Guts. The difference is clear cut, Casca is a average height brown skinned short dark haired tomboyish swordswoman, Slan is a tall pale long haired [[EvilIsSexy demon sex godesss]]. Casca (due to her close call in her childhood) is protective of her body and covers her self in armour, Slan is completely naked only wearing a creepy black under corset. Slan is naturally lustful, Casca is self couscous about her womanhood and is terrified of sexual assaults made on her (rightly so as every other [[IhaveNowMyPretty villain is trying to get in her pants) Guts is the only man Casca has had consensual sex with and even then she asks him to be "gentle". Slan is literally got her hands all over a disgusted Guts and wanted to keep him as some "boy toy".

** Lunch (or Launch depending on translation)) has a bad counterpart though her SplitPersonailty whic she turns into whenever she sneezes. In her Blue haired lady side Launch is kind, generous and doting. In her blonde form Launch is greedy, mean spirited and trigger happy while she starts off as a evil comic foil the generally decent Dragon Ball gang though her bad side helps out occasionally, during the Tien saga Launch becomes a pseudo AntiHero helping out Goku and even becomes depressed over Krilln's death.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', Number 96 is very much an EvilCounterpart of Astral. This is emphasized in the dub version, where both characters have the same voice actor.

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' has Rau Le Creuset who actually manages to be the EvilCounterpart to 3 characters. As a cold-blooded subversion of TheObiWan, he's a counterpart to his {{archenemy}}, BigBrotherMentor Mu La Flaga (whose [[spoiler:father he is cloned from]]). He also however, is the counterpart to BornWinner and fellow science experiment, Kira Yamato, demonstrating how badly the kid could have turned out if he hadn't had decent parents. Finally, he's the [[ThePhilosopher philosophical]] opposite of [[AllLovingHero Lacus Clyne]], [[DarkMessiah preaching a gospel]] of [[NietzscheWannabe nihilism]], [[MisanthropeSupreme misanthropy]] and [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal Mania]] in contrast to her [[TechnicalPacifist Technical Pacifism]] and [[RousseauWasRight humanism]].

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': The Garuru Platoon to the Keroro Platoon in Episodes 101-103. Taruru to Tamama, Garuru to Giroro, Tororo to Kululu, and Zoruru to Dororo. Strangely, Keroro did not have one. Also done in the Third movie, with Shivava to Tamama and Doruru to Giroro. Dark Keroro counts, but he's more of an EvilTwin to Keroro.

** Clifford D. Louis of The Pentagram is a pretty obvious EvilCounterpart to Hiruma too. They're both talented poker players and EvilGenius quarterbacks, who invoke BlondGuysAreEvil and love a good challenge. They even both wear #1 jerseys. The only real differences are Hiruma's preference for trick plays, and Clifford's greater speed.
