** Along with his obvious parallels to Shadow, Tsali is essentially a more-humanlike [[Franchise/TheTerminator Terminator]]. In a similar vein, the armies of flesh-eating Tsali Androids he once controlled are rather suspiciously similar to [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} Necron Flayed Ones]].

* In the Pokemon fic Fanfic/Traveler, by the time of the Pokemon League, Ash has taken on more than a few of [[Videogame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red's]] traits, preferring solitude in nature with his team to being around people, as well as becoming more silent and stoic, and a much calmer, more collected battler. Gary lampshades this in conversation after the League, claiming that without his friends making him socialize, Ash would probably disappear into the wild. Jonathan later mentions having his final showdown with Ash [[Videogame/PokemonGoldAndSilver atop Mt. Silver]], saying it seems like Ash's type of place.

Added DiffLines:

* In the [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Legend of Korra]] fanfic [[FanFic/BookFiveLegends Book Five: Legends]] we have several, most notably Princess Koko, who is a thinly veiled [[Characters/FriendshipIsMagicTwilightSparkle Twilight Sparkle]] from [[WesternAnimation/FriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]]. Dresses in purple, insists on being called a princess, and has a great love of reading. Also, Miko more or less jumped over from [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Transformers Prime]], both in appearance and personality, though the latter changes slightly after TheReveal. [[WordOfGod The Author]] states in his notes he imagines them voiced by the same voice actresses as well. Temuji also bears some similarities with Kaworu Nagisa from [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]], particularly in appearance but also somewhat in mannerisms (at first).

%% Before adding examples, check the guidelines in the Expy cleanup thread (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13983140170A37263400) and make sure your example fits the criteria to qualify as an Expy. Don't just list minor or coincidental similarities. Also, explain why the character is an Expy - don't just say "X is an expy of Y" and leave it at that.

* The ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' fancomic ''Webcomic/BeTheSeaDwellerLowblood'' has [[OurTrollsAreDifferent troll]] versions of the B1 kids (including bro, though not really a "kid"), SweetBroAndHellaJeff characters, the Midnight Crew, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] {{Deadpool}}. They're all renamed to fit the six-letter troll name limit and to just sound more trollish. For example, Rose Lalonde becomes Rhosyn Lalond, Sweet Bro becomes Suweet Broski, etc.

* ''FanFic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' has Nabby, an Expy of the [[ComicBook/TheSmurfs comic book version]] of Greedy since Greedy is still the village chef as in [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs the cartoon show]]. The Psyche Master is basically one for [[Film/{{Tron}} the MCP]], and Traveler is one for Waverider from DC Comics' ''{{Armageddon 2001}}''. Duncan [=McSmurf=], on the other hand, is more of a CaptainErsatz of Gutsy from ''Film/TheSmurfs'' film series.
* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], in an InUniverse example, the Griffon nation has the uncanny trait of ripping off its more popular Equestrian counterparts, notably when it comes to its [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct books, companies,]] or even ponies themselves, with their dubious (yet admittedly, probably non-existent) answer to Shining Armor, [[CaptainErsatz Shining Amour]].
