* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' features the evil Fanaloka Karl who explicitly declares himself to be in a battle of light and dark with King Julien, and he's not too far off; both are eccentric and have huge egos and both make their HomeBase in the ruins of a crashed human aircraft.

* In one of the weirder cases of this trope, ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'''s Marshall Lee is this to Marceline, being a gender swapped AuthorAvatar of her. He's a much darker and crueler reflection of her, and Marcy almost seems to ''wish'' she could be like him. That said, for a ShadowArchetype, Marshall sure seems to hate seeing Fionna cry.

** It's eventually revealed that [[spoiler:[[BigBad the Lich]] and [[TheHero Finn]] are counterparts: the Lich was born from the Green Catalyst Comet that struck Earth and killed off the dinosaurs and seems to represent Mass Extinction while Finn is the {{Reincarnation}} of the Blue Catalyst Comet, which incarnated as a butterfly (a symbol of rebirth).]]

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', the titular boys compete with a pair of similar kids named Thaddeus and Thor. They're not evil, per se, but Thaddeus is obviously a {{Jerkass}} compared to Phineas.
** In [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbTheMovieAcrossThe2ndDimension the movie]], [[DimensionalTraveler the characters go to]] AnotherDimension, where they find alternate versions of themselves. As Dr. Doofenshmitz [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain fails being evil]], his 2nd Dimension self, as his opposite, is truly evil.

Phineas. They're also a little inferior to them, however.

As Dr. Doofenshmitz [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain fails being evil]], his 2nd Dimension self, as his opposite, and his counterpart, is truly evil.evil. He is also the ruler of the tti state area, or maybe [[FridgeHorror the world]].

** Also in season 3 is Suri Polomare, an evil counterpart to Rarity. Both wish to make a name for themselves in the world of fashion, but while Rarity is known for her generosity, Suri is selfish and manipulative. She sucks up to Rarity just long enough to take advantage of her generosity, and is more than willing to lie, cheat, and steal in pursuit of fame.

* ''WesternAnimation/IvanhoeTheKingsKnight'' features two:
** Deirdre to Rebecca. Rebecca is a maiden and Deirdre is a crone, they are both wise in the ways of medicines, potions and the like with Deirdre being wise when it comes to the occult and both are presumably the only non-Saxon/Norman of their group. Rebecca, while never stated, is Jewish and Deirdre, if her name is any indication but considering Gawain is a Saxon she might not be, is Celtic.
** Prince John is also one to King Richard, no better shown than in "A Friend in Need" where a peasant says that there were "fewer taxes under good King Richard."

* This trope was inverted and played straight in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground''. When the protagonists visited a MirrorUniverse, [[spoiler:their own counterparts were evil, tyrannical rulers, while a good Robotnik was the leader of the Resistance.]]

** Twilight gains another one in season 5 named [[DarkMagicalGirl Starlight Glimmer]]. Both seek to spread friendship across the land, but Twilight offers genuine friendship while Starlight offers a false one through brainwashing. Twilight studies and trains to overcome her limitations and encourages others to do their best, while Starlight became bitterly jealous of others and so found a spell that can take away the talents of others, so nopony can ever be better than her. While Twilight became a new Princess of Friendship in Equestria, Starlight became a sociopathic dictator in a FalseUtopia town, with aspirations to take her message [[TodayXTommorrowTheWorld outside of her town]]. It also reflects in their backstories. Twilight has had friends, social status, and guidance since youth and had the benefit of being under the tutelege of Princess Celestia, Starlight has had no such fortune, having suffered a broken friendship and having pretty much spent most of her life [[FriendlessBackground alone]], which [[StartOfDarkness led]] to her status. It's even lampshaded when the two meet, as Starlight becomes increasingly [[GreenEyedMonster jealous]] and [[TheResenter resentful]] of Twilight's talent and fortune, to the point where Starlight develops a personal vendetta against her that [[RevengeBeforeReason grew even stronger]] after the Season 5 premiere.
