* ''{{Leverage}}'' has a number of counterparts to the main characters, although not all of them can be strictly called evil. A less ambiguous example is Chaos, a hacker of almost equal skill to Hardisson but completely lacking in ethics (in his first appearance, he tries to kill his entire crew to make off with the money). There's also Sterling who is just as smart as Nate (they used to be friends) and DangerouslyGenreSavvy. The kick is, Sterling is actually working within the law (he even becomes an Interpol agent), while Nate constantly breaks them.

** Cheese is this to D'Angelo. Cheese was also the nephew of a drug lord. Despite the way he looks, he's a DirtyCoward. Dee stopped trusting his own family but never snitched on them. Cheese openly bragged about betraying his uncle to his death and got killed for it.
** Colvin resorts to an unsavory but effective scheme to lower the crime in his district but gets retired in disgrace. Valchek happily cheats on the police stats [[spoiler: and gets promoted to Commissioner]].

** [[spoiler:Ruby]] is this to Dean. Both are [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], {{Determinator}}s, very sarcastic, HotBlooded, incredibly {{Badass}}, [[BloodKnight have a passion for fighting]], [[{{Berserker}} will never back down from a fight]], are loyal to their missions, have played the roles of TheCaretaker and TheMentor to Sam, whom both of them have UndyingLoyalty to, are [[WellDoneSonGuy strongly devoted to their "fathers"]], and [[spoiler:have sold their souls to demons in the past]]. It's a common fan theory that [[spoiler:Ruby]] deliberately took on some of Dean's traits in order to get Sam to trust her and be willing to work with her.

* ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Series/PowerRangers'' have had several evil counterpart teams to the Rangers, though the evil team most people remember are the ones in ''Series/DenjiSentaiMegaranger'' and ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'', the Nejirangers/Psycho Rangers respectively, who actually named a subtrope: ThePsychoRangers.

However, there are also episodes in which only one of the Rangers gets an evil counterpart, thus playing this trope straight, rather than the subtrope. Examples are:
** 'Blue Ranger Gone Bad' from the second season of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', featuring an evil clone of Billy.
** ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' has Tetsumenpi Chouryuo; an armored warrior capable of using the same techniques the Dairangers can.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' also frequently makes use of this trope. Most of the time the EvilCounterpart is another Rider who is essentially a PaletteSwap of the original. If not, he still functions largely the same as the original. The earliest known example of this trope in Kamen Rider are the Shocker Riders in the [[Series/KamenRider first series]].
