** Later, the [[KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge Buzzing]] receives its own counterpart in the form of the [[TheDisembodied Black Signal]], AKA [[TomTheDarkLord John]]. Both are [[MouthOfSauron speakers]] for eldritch beings with no means of communicating on their own - again, Gaia and the Dreamers; both [[NonActionGuy remain outside of the conflict]] except in dire circumstances; and both provide information to the players in the form of the Lore entries. But where the Buzzing is a HiveMind of biomechanical Bees, John is a singular disembodied entity haunting the electronic systems of Tokyo; whereas the Buzzing was always as eldritch as it was, John WasOnceAMan before transcending humanity; the Buzzing merely tries to inform the players, while the Black Signal tries to convert them to his cause; the Bees speak in an unearthly and decidedly eccentric manner peppered with BlueAndOrangeMorality, whereas John chats to players in [[AffablyEvil a more conversational fashion]], littered with his trademarked nihilism; also, where the Bees merely warn you that telling you too much [[GoMadFromTheRevelation could do serious damage to your brain]], John can and ''will'' MindRape you if you don't comply with his orders. For good measure, John communicates primarily by hijacking the Buzzing's lore signal to the players.

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar2018'': The Stranger [[spoiler: aka Baldr]] is one to Kratos [[spoiler: as they're both gods who were cursed by their parent's (though Freya's was an attempt to protect her son that went wrong) and spend their lives in a self-destructive revenge quest]]. It all plays into the game's overall theme of Kratos trying to move on from his past, in this case by confronting someone who is the same as he was in the original trilogy.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'', it's observed that the [[MysticalPlague Filth]] is the direct opposite of [[TheLifestream Anima]], and often referred to as "Anti-Anima" and "corrupted Anima" for this very reason. Both are powerful forms of supernatural energy; both can be used to [[SuperEmpowering infuse individuals with weird and eldritch powers]]; both can induce immortality of a sort; both are under the control of immensely powerful beings that the players never meet in person - [[BigGood Gaia]] for Anima, the [[EldritchAbomination Dreamers]] for the Filth - and both are used in order to provide these beings with servants. However, where Anima brings healing and enlightenment, the Filth brings hideous mutations and insanity.

* In the ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' expansion ''Enemy Within'', an evil organization called EXALT is revealed to be secretly in league with the aliens, although they have their own mysterious goals. Their operatives use the same tactics as your own XCOM soldiers, and their weapons are identical in stats (but less boxy) to your own firearms and laser weapons (EXALT never develops plasma). Like your soldiers, EXALT uses [[GreyGoo Meld]] to enhance their operatives, although they never build [[PoweredArmor MEC Troopers]]. Even their HQ's location is opposite to yours. The XCOM base is deep underground, while the EXALT HQ is on top of a skyscraper. When storming it, your soldiers find a hologlobe identical to yours but red in color, although their HQ is more aesthetic than functional in stark contrast to the XCOM base. There are some subtle hints that EXALT may have evolved out of the [[VideoGame/TheBureauXCOMDeclassified original XCOM project]] in TheSixties.

** Yggdrasil [[spoiler: aka Mithos the Hero]] in ''TalesOfSymphonia'' could be considered as such to Lloyd, [[spoiler: both of them starting out as well-intentioned {{Determinator}}s, though while Lloyd eventually learns when to back down and think things through, Mithos remains stubborn and unwavering to the bitter end, which causes his StartOfDarkness (his last words even have him calling Lloyd "my shadow" and proclaiming that he "stands at the end of the path I chose not to follow.") He also has a lot in common with Genis, both being disillusioned half-elves and having to suffer the persecution that comes from being such, though Genis eventually learns to accept the humans who persecuted him, while Mithos continues to be bitter and resentful towards them.]]

* Every single character in ''VideoGame/BattleArenaToshinden 3'' had an EvilCounterpart that had to be fought as a SubBoss. Most of them were merely [[PaletteSwap carbon copies of the originals]] with a new coat of paint (except for BadassLongcoat Vermilion), so if you mastered one, you could easily play with their counterpart.
** Aside from that, the initial playable characters and their evil counterparts had all [[Analysis/BattleArenaToshinden shared special themes in relation to one another]]. For example, the series' main protagonist Eiji and his evil counterpart Leon had shared a theme of temperament; where Eiji was a hot blooded jerk seeking to get stronger, overtime, he softened up and became more level headed in his pursuits. Leon is a cruel and cocky jerk without any standards, who will do anything in his power to be the strongest and get rid of those who will stand in his way, even if it meant sending them as a sacrifice to [[BigBad Abel]]'s plans. He even desires to challenge [[WorldsStrongestMan Sho]] to achieve his goal.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' also has Vanitas and Ven. And if you want to take it a step further, Vanitas and SORA.
** Looking at the backstory revealed in ''Birth By Sleep'', the case can be made that [[spoiler:Xehanort is an EvilCounterpart to Sora. They both grew up at Destiny Islands, they both became Keyblade weilders, they both became a sort of composite being (Xehanort through GrandTheftMe, Sora through absorbing others' hearts), they both became a Heartless and a Nobody. Sora is a [[IdiotHero Naive Hero]] and increasingly portrayed as a MessianicArchetype, while Xehanort is a MagnificentBastard who has recently showed some FallenAngel symbolism.]]

* [[BloodKnight Akuma]] is [[WarriorPoet Ryu's]] [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Blue counterpart]] in various ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' games and their adaptations. The brother of Ryu's master, Akuma was a student of the same martial art and was also driven by the desire to be the most powerful martial artist, deciding that he was willing to kill those he defeated in the pursuit of true strength, while Ryu ultimately rejects killing. (The exception being in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 2'' and ''3'', where there's an Evil Ryu SecretCharacter. There, he turns out ''even worse'' than Akuma. Whereas Akuma has a sort of moral code, even if it falls heavily under BlueAndOrangeMorality, Evil Ryu is just a cold-blooded killer who ends up slaughtering the entire cast.)
** Another example would be [[MysticalWaif Rose]] and [[BigBad M. Bison]], as both are wielders of [[OurSoulsAreDifferent Soul Power]]. Whereas Bison uses his corrupted Soul Power {which he calls Psycho Power} for pure evil, Rose is very heroic, kind, and uses her Soul Power to aid the other heroes, [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice going as far as to offering her life to Bison in order to spare them.]]]] The fact that she was created from Bison's [[IncorruptiblePurePureness discarded goodness]] further cements the connection the two ultimately share.

* Wario was once an evil rival of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]], complete with evil versions of Mario's powerups. Then he shifted to a greedy AntiHero who stole from [[EvilVersusEvil other villains]], soon replacing his dark powerups with the gimmick of NighInvulnerability and bizarre transformations based on how he is injured. On a couple of occasions Wario has actually helped Mario however, both with and without selfish motives.
** Later on, Nintendo gave Luigi his own Evil Counterpart in the form of Waluigi.
** Wario got one himself in ''VideoGame/WarioLandShakeIt'' The Shake King was essentially a bigger, greedier Wario, with most of his abilities mirroring those of Wario. This is assuming he can be called an Evil Counterpart; [[VillainProtagonist Wario isn't exactly a good guy to begin with]].
** Wario got another in ''VideoGame/WarioMasterOfDisguise'' in the form of [[spoiler: Terrormisu]]: similar to Wario's ability to change his abilities with his disguises, [[spoiler: Terrormisu]] changes each phase of the fight by putting on a different {{mask|OfPower}} [[EmotionalPowers representing sadness, happiness, and anger]].
*** It's interesting to note that the prefix "wa", originated from the word "warui", means plenty of things, including "evil" in Japanese. Hence, Wario and Waluigi are, literally, "Bad Mario" and "Bad Luigi". However, their names can also mean, based on the meanings of the word "Warui", " Wrong Mario/Luigi", "Poor Mario/Luigi", "Hateful Mario/Luigi", "Abominable Mario/Luigi", "Wrong Mario/Luigi" or "Inferior Mario/Luigi".
*** Furthermore, Waluigi´s name in Japanese is an anagram of the word "Ijiwaru". Which means his name has extra meanings such as "Ill-tempered Luigi" or "Sadistic Luigi".

* The gnomes introduced in ''VideoGame/OverlordII'' are a ''good'' counterpart to your minions. Unfortunately for them, in the setting, "Good" means either "self-serving JerkAss using their supposed virtue as free license to do whatever they want" or "obnoxious, ineffectual idiot", and they got stuck with the latter version.
** Still, another example of a Good Counterpart for the EvilOverlord VillainProtagonist would be Queen Fay, leader of the Elves and the reigning being of Light Magic (you being Dark Magic). She still ends up coming to you for an EnemyMine against the AntiMagic Empire [[spoiler:in which she ends up sacrificing her energy to power the Overlord's [[ArtifactOfDoom Tower Heart]], ending with her corruption and becoming a FallenHero]].
** In ''VideoGame/OverlordI'', your EvilOverlord character comes up against an Evil''er'' Counterpart in the form of the Wizard [[spoiler:who was possessed by your predecessor]].

* ''VideoGames/{{Overwatch}}'', despite being a team-based HeroShooter that tends to be light on story (at least in the game itself), has an example in two of its healers, [[HerrDoktor Mercy]] and [[MadScientist Moira]].

Moira is an EvilutionaryBiologist and ProfessorGuineaPig who's single-minded drive towards improving humanity through genetic modification is, unfortunately, [[MadScientist not tempered by things like ethics]].
