** Big Boss himself counts.

** Big Boss himself counts. Both he and Snake have been put through the wringer and seen just how horribly soldiers are treated by their governments that claim to respect them. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Big Boss crosses lines]] that Snake refuses to. Right before his death, [[HeelRealization after finally realizing how far he had fallen]], Big Boss commends Snake for not going down the same path that he did.

** Also, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword's'' [[spoiler:Ghirahim]] as [[spoiler:[[BiggerBad Demise]]'s]] sword to [[ExpositionFairy Fi]] as Link's sword. His persona was carefully crafted to be Fi's polar opposite. Fi is fairly emotionless and speaks in [[IfMyCalculationsAreCorrect percentages.]] [[spoiler:Ghirahim]] is [[LargeHam flamboyant to the extreme]], and very open and dramatic. Once his true form is revealed, his text boxes look similar to Fi's, albeit black. [[spoiler:Demise's]] weapon even looks like a dark version of the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Master Sword]]- even down to an upside-down Triforce on the blade.]]

** Zig-zagged with [[spoiler:Princess Hilda]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds''. She looks like an evil version of [[spoiler:Princess Zelda]]-- what with her [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] to [[spoiler:Zelda's]] InnocentBlueEyes, her [[spoiler:[[GracefulWomenLikePurple purple]]]] attire to [[spoiler:Zelda's [[PrincessesPreferPink pink]] attire, and her dark hair color to [[spoiler:Zelda's]] [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blonde hair]]. Still, she is morally ambiguous and even helpful towards Link. [[spoiler:Until the final boss that is, where it's revealed she is working with the BigBad. Then again double subverted when it turns out she isn't evil, she is a WellIntentionedExtremist who would risk another kingdom for her own. Hilda was being used and after the boss battle she makes up with Zelda.]]

* In the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise, Shadow the Hedgehog was introduced as Sonic's Evil Counterpart. Since then, though, he's become more of an AntiHero Counterpart.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' have [[spoiler:Gengar]] to the main character.
* Malefor from ''[[Franchise/SpyroTheDragon The Legend of Spyro trilogy]]'' seems to be this to Spyro. Both are Purple Dragons, both were, according to Chief Prowlus and the statues of him all over the place, heroic in their youth, and both were trained freely by their elders in the Dragon Elements. The difference is Malefor let his power go to his head and [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity went mad with power]] while Spyro remained good hearted (though Spyro was [[RaisedByWolves raised by dragonflies]] which may have had something to do with it). Malefor is aware of this and worked it into his NotSoDifferent HannibalLecture.

* Rafe Adler in ''{{VideoGame/Uncharted}}'' 4 is a rival treasure hunter who acts as a much more violent and sociopathic version of Drake. He is just as much a capable climber, explorer, and gunman as Drake, and even shares Drake's fondness for dry humor at times. [[spoiler: It is revealed over the course of the game that one of his primary motivations is to outdo Drake, who he is incredibly jealous of.]]
