* Cole, of DragonAgeInquisition, is one for Tate from AmericanHorrorStoryMurderHouse. Both are kind and sensitive, helpful young men, who have a lot of intuitive knowledge about the magical/supernatural. Both magically appear out of nowhere to help many times, and seem quite nice. And yet, both of them are not fully human, and have murdered many people. Both need the help of the protagonist to come to terms with their own nature.

* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'': Axl Low is quite obviously based a lot on Axl ''Rose'', the vocalist for Music/GunsNRoses, but being a goofy and humourous British time traveller, there's also a lot of [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] in him. [[spoiler:With the TomatoInTheMirror in ''Xrd: Revelator'' that he's a magical time being as well, he's even closer.]]

* The titular VideoGame/SeriousSam is pretty much the equally titular DukeNukem without all the sexual and toilet humor (but still with plenty of cheesy one-liners.) This, plus the fact that the first game came out the same year that 3D Realms announced "VideoGame/DukeNukemForever will be done when it's done" could be used to argue that the former is a SpiritualSuccessor to the latter (especially when DukeNukemForever bombed horribly, while Serious Sam 3 fared considerably better.)
