* [[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink Dark]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Link.]] In some games, Dark Link is just a mid level boss and in other games, he's a full fledged villain. Dark Link uses a sword and shield in exactly the same way as Link and frequently mirrors Link's attacks to block them.
** Also, [[spoiler:''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword's'' Ghirahim as [[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.]] 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. 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:Zelda]]-- what with her [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] to [[spoiler:Zelda's]] InnocentBlueEyes, her [[spoiler:purple]] 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 WellIntendedExtremist who would risk another kingdom for her own. She was being used and after the boss battle makes up with Zelda.]]

***If you compare how they react to revelations about themselves; Sephiroth thought he was special and awesome, only to learn that he was a laboratory monster. Likewise, Cloud thought he was this epic super-soldier, only to learn that everything he remembered about that was a lie. But where Sephiroth desperately tried to restore his pride through godly delusions, Cloud managed to (with Tifa's help) restore himself to a state free of delusions.

* Subverted in the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}} franchise, the titular character's magical order called the Umbran Witches are a female-only group of magic-users who have contracts with infernal demons and can slow down time. By all accounts they ''should'' be the evil counterparts to the the male-only group of magic-users who work with angels and can speed up time, the Lumen Sages, except in the first game the Lumen Sages tried to exterminate the Umbran Witch order in order to steal their half of a god's power, the Eyes of the World, which would make ''them'' [[LightIsNotGood the evil counterparts]]. Of course, this gets fully subverted in the [[{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}} sequel]] when its revealed the Lumen Sages weren't really evil, they were led down a path of destruction by the angels lying to them in an attempt at a power-grab for the Eyes of the World, coupled with the Lumen Sage leader, Balder, [[spoiler:being corrupted by housing the pure evil half of the soul of the former God of Chaos in his body]].

* There are a couple present in the SoulSeries. The most direct example is Lizardman to Sophitia; both are Greek warriors chosen by Hephaestus, but while Sophitia succeeded (sort of) in her mission and returned home, Aeon Calcos failed, was transformed into a horrible lizard monster and swore revenge on the god that had abandoned him.

* Meta Knight from the VideoGame/{{Kirby}} series has Galacta Knight. Both have very similar appearance, attacks, and movesets. The primary differences between the two are that Galacta Knight lacks Meta Knight's sense of chivalry, and Galacta has a more angelic appearance compared to Meta Knight (White feathered wings and brighter colors compared to Meta's bat wings and dark colors).
** Meta Knight also has [[spoiler: Dark Meta Knight, who had first appeared in [[VideoGame/KirbyandTheAmazingMirror "The Amazing Mirror"]] and later appeared as the true final boss of [[VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe "Triple Deluxe"]].]]

* King Dedede has [[spoiler: Shadow Dedede, who is fought during Dededetour in [[VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe "Triple Deluxe"]].]]
* Kirby has Shadow Kirby in [[VideoGame/KirbyandTheAmazingMirror "The Amazing Mirror"]], [[spoiler: although he goes through a HeelFaceTurn once Kirby realizes that [[NotSoDifferent he wants his world to be saved just as much as Kirby wants his own world to be saved]], which results in them becoming allies.]]
