* Another character who borrows character design from Dante as well as [[{{Manga/Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] is Alucard from ''{{Manga/Hellsing}}''. Apart from his penchant for red coats, the HealingFactor that dwarfs Dante's himself, and a pair of ScaryShinyGlasses, he also wields two guns, one black and one silver, and can transform into a more demonic form. The main difference is that Alucard is a lot more bloodthirsty than Dante and Vash combined, and his vampiric power is so great that he has to be kept in check via a system of {{Power Limiter}}s.

** Clare is an almost perfect expy of Ikuno from ''Manga/AngelDensetsu''. Down to her behavior. (And she's attracted to Raki/Yuji too). For some added expiness read the episode in which Kitano dreams during math lesson just after reading Claymore, and notice his sword and the oni's eyes. Many also see Clare as a genderswapped [[Manga/Berserk Guts]], given both characters' {{Dark And Troubled Past}}s, penchant for [[{{BFS}} giant swords]] and [[DemonSlaying general calling]].

* Yui and Takeo Sasaki from ''Anime/{{X-Men}}'' are Expies of Moira and Kevin [=MacTaggert=]/Proteus from the comics, right down to Yui being a famous researcher and Xavier's old flame [[spoiler:, and Takeo being Xavier's bastard son, much like [[Comicbook/UltimateXMen Ultimate]] Proteus]].

to:

* The {{manhwa}} ''Manhwa/WitchHunter'' is quite an expy of ''Manga/DGrayMan''. The main protagonists both have white hair, wear black uniform which are the same color as their respective comrades', show sympathy towards their enemies' ''race'', and have [[PlayedForLaughs hilarious]] financial problems.

* Michiru Kita from ''Manga/ZombieLoan'' is very similar to Lettuce Midorikawa from ''Manga/TokyoMewMew''. Both have [[{{Meganekko}} glasses]] and [[ShrinkingViolet shy personalities]], and in the beginning of ''Zombie Loan'', Michiru even has Lettuce's twin braids. Until she chops them off, of course.

** Bianca (in [[AdaptationalPersonalityChange the anime)]] was easily a girl version of Barry from ''Diamond and ''Pearl'', in that they are both hyperactive, impatient blondes who serve as recurring rivals to Ash.

** Future Trunks is the unborn future son of the female lead, and he travels back in time to stop a group of robots from taking over the world in the future. [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Sounds familiar...]]
