* A two-part episode of ''Series/TheSentinel'' introduces Alex Barnes, who has the same hyperactive senses as Jim but turns out to be a ClassyCatBurglar. She's also willing to kill anyone who stands in her way, even someone who helped her get a handle on her abilities. She ends up finding an ancient Peruvian temple and performs a ritual that temporarily boosts her abilities UpToEleven, but this ends up frying her brain.

** Another episode has a Russian sniper named Yuri whom Blair even calls Jim's technological counterpart. Both have military training. While Jim uses his natural hypersenses, Yuri uses technology (e.g. binoculars, sniper scopes, heat sensors) to achieve the same level of awareness. They also previously tangled during Jim's military days, where Yuri outmaneuvered Jim's squad and killed the man they were supposed to protect.

* ''Series/StargateAtlantis''Series/''. Kolya is in may ways a counterpart to John Sheppard. Both are extraordinary soldiers, both command incredible loyalty from their men, and both have made difficult choices for the good of their people. Kolya just happens to also be an [[MoralEventHorizon amoral bastard]].

** Ramsay Snow to Jon Snow. Both are the bastard son of a northern lord, but Jon is heroic and Ramsay is definitely not. Ramsay's relationship with his father, Roose Bolton, is also a dark counterpoint to Jon's relationship with his father, Ned Stark. Where Ned loves and acknowledges Jon as one of his sons, raising him alongside his trueborn siblings in his castle, GRRM states in HBO's featurette 'Bastards in Westeros', "Ramsay gets nothing from Roose," with Roose treating Ramsay poorly and only acknowledging him when he has no other choice for an heir.

Slightly subverted in that [[spoiler:Jon turns out to be the bastard son of Rhaegar Targaryan and Lyanna Stark, Ned's sister, so he's still a bastard, but not the son of who he thinks he is. In fact, Jon has a claim to the throne]].

* Similar to the comic books, ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has Barry face off against villainous speedsters each season. In Season 1, it's the Reverse-Flash ([[spoiler:Eobard Thawne/Harrison Wells]]); in Season 2, it's Zoom ([[spoiler:Zolomon Hunter]]), as well as one-shot encounters with the Reverse-Flash and a female speedster named Trajectory. In Season 3, during the Flashpoint timeline, Kid Flash ([[spoiler:Wally]]) has an evil counterpart in the face of the Rival (Edward Clariss), who may be building up to being Barry's counterpart in the main timeline, only to be killed by the real EvilCounterpart Savitar, the self-described "God of Speed", who wears a PoweredArmor, has mystical powers, and is ''much'' faster than Barry. [[spoiler:He is a surviving time remnant, created, when Barry tries to save Iris from Savitar in the near future. The remnant survives the fight, but is treated like crap by everyone, so he eventually loses it and becomes evil]].

* ''Series/WhiteCollar'': Matthew Keller to Neal Caffrey. Like Neal, he's a skilled con man (to the point of being referred to as Neal's "blue color version") and a very good chess player, but lacks both the charm and the standards and scruples that make Neal sympathetic and likable, instead being a cold-blooded sociopath who has no qualms about kidnapping, hostage-taking, and murdering people to get what he wants.

** Joffrey Baratheon to Robb Stark. Both are young men who rise to power around the same time after their father's death and die by treachery at a wedding, death, but Joffrey is TheCaligula and a DirtyCoward who would sooner let his guards do his dirty work for him and Robb is the YoungConqueror.YoungConqueror and a beloved leader. They both share the same flaws of making political enemies due to their rash behaviors (Robb's Honor and Joffrey's Greed). This ultimately costs both of them their lives, dying in a similar manner by treachery at a wedding within weeks of the same time frame.

** The Master's wife Lucy is in many ways a mirror image of Rose. Both are blonde women who fell in love with a Time Lord and became his loyal companion, but whereas Rose's travels with the Doctor seeing the wonders of the universe made her stronger and more idealistic, Lucy is a StrawNihlist who can watch ten percent of the world die with a smile on her face and is utterly subordinate to her husband's will [[spoiler:until she shoots him]] after seeing the end of the universe. Also, while the love between the Doctor and Rose was largely chaste and unrequited, the Master and Lucy's relationship is explicitly sexual and abusive.
