** 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 [[TodayXTomorrowTheWorld outside of her town]]. It also reflects in their backstories. Twilight Sparkle has had friends, social status, and guidance since youth and had the benefit of being a magical prodigy mentored under the tutelege of Princess Celestia, not to mention her ''special cutie mark connection'' with the other Mane Five. Starlight Glimmer on the other hand, has had no such fortune whatsoever. As a filly, Starlight had minimal guidance, no cutie mark connection and in fact suffered a ''broken'' friendship due to her closest friend ''receiving his cutie mark'', and was forced to have pretty much spent most of her life [[FriendlessBackground alone]], which [[StartOfDarkness led]] to her increasing bitterness and hatred towards cutie marks and talents. 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 Twilight and her friends that [[RevengeBeforeReason grew even stronger]] after the season 5 premiere. [[spoiler: Which is why Twilight Sparkle takes it upon herself to befriend Starlight Glimmer and teach her about Friendship as her own mentor.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', there are numerous parallels between [[TeamMom Katara]] and [[MagnificentBastard Azula]]: roughly the same [[ImprobableAge age]], they are both the daughters of leaders with leadership skills of their own, both freakishly [[TheGift powerful and talented]] prodigies with their elements, both at least occasionally overbearing control freaks and possessed of a dangerous temper when provoked. On opposite lines of the RedOniBlueOni divide they may be, but taking into account their fathers' personalities/influences they are far more alike than one may think.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has ''two'' sets. The Rowdyruff Boys are a group of little boys with the same powers but the opposite morality, and were created by Mojo Jojo from snips, snails, and puppy dogs tails. The Powerpunk Girls (Berserk, Brat, and Brute) are from an alternate universe where the evil [[PunnyName Oppressor Plutonium]] (Professor Utonium's own Evil Counterpart) created them out of salt, vinegar, and everything nasty (and Chemical X) to conquer the world. (Although in the case of Buttercup and Brute, the only ''real'' difference between their personalities is that Brute's tendency towards violence is ''amplified''.) Mojo Jojo has a Good Counterpart in this reality who is a hero.

The Powerpunk Girls story, "Deja View" was turned into issue #50 of the DC comic book as the plans to make it a TV episode fell through (over budget, tight deadline).

** Amon [[spoiler:initially]] represents the idea of an ordinary human born without bending, but later gaining power from the spirits in order to take away others bending. Contrasting each Avatar's reincarnation and multiple bending abilities being the result of a permanent fusion with a spirit.
** Unalaq ''literally'' becomes Korra's evil counterpart [[spoiler:by fusing with the spirit that embodies the polar opposite of the one empowering the Avatar]].

** In [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbTheMovieAcrossThe2ndDimension the movie]], [[DimensionalTraveler the characters go to]] AnotherDimension, where they find alternate versions of themselves. It turns out that [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Dr. Doofenshmitz]]'s counterpart is savvy (if still [[BewareTheSillyOnes somewhat silly]]) and has been ruling the Tri-State Area with an iron fist for years. This also applies to [[AnimalSuperhero Perry]]'s counterpart, which Doof-2 [[UnwillingRoboticization turned into a cyborg minion]].
*** In [[Recap/PhineasAndFerbTalesFromTheResistance the episode sequel]], we find out that Charlene-2 not only knew that Doof was evil, [[UnholyMatrimony they're still happily married]]. Might extend to Vanessa-2 as well, since she helps them escape
