* Yoosung from ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger'' closely resembles Yeonho from ''VisualNovel/{{Nameless}}'', an earlier game from the same company: both are blond {{Keet}}s who [[OlderThanTheyLook look significantly younger than the rest of the cast]], [[StepfordSmiler harbor deep insecurities behind their cheerful smiles]], and become disturbingly clingy towards the female protagonist on their routes.

* Mercedes Marten of ''[[DragonsDogma Dragon's Dogma]]'' is an expy of Casca from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' more or less. The game is already crawling with ''Berserk'' references, so it's not hard to imagine that the headstrong but insecure, short-haired, ambiguously brown, tomboyish, female commander of an army being a ''tad bit'' inspired by the female lead of the dark fantasy manga. It's pretty hard not to [[http://cult-of-casca.tumblr.com/tagged/mercedes-marten once you've seen them.]]

*** Every generation up through 5 has a small, cute, [[LostForever unobtainable]] legendary with [[JackOfAllStats an even spread of 100 among all stats]]. In order: Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Shaymin, and Victini. To further the pattern, all but two, Manaphy and Shaymin, are at least part-Psychic-types.

* Wol in ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'' hits major points from Kazushige Nojima's previous ''FF'' heroes - Squall's fear of getting emotionally involved, Cloud's DeadpanSnarker side, and Tidus's FishOutOfWater personality. Heavily lampshaded in Gilgamesh's storyline, where Gilgamesh is trying to get Wol to find himself a role model among the Warriors of Light in history - 'you sound like a few of them already'. Wol tells Gilgamesh to go and talk to a wall, a phrase used by Squall, and when asked if he's a fan of Squall says he's 'not interested' while doing Cloud's distinctive shrug. Gilgamesh becomes concerned that Wol will never be able to be more popular than Cloud, but wishes him good luck anyway.

** The comparisons between [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Lusamine]] and [[Anime/KillLaKill Ragyo Kiryuin]] are simply too obvious to ignore; Bright clothing and extravagant hairstyle? Check. Obsessed with beauty and an EldritchAbomination, eventually fusing with said Abomination for her final battle? Check. Controls a large company that's really famous? Check. Controlled every aspect of her children's lives for who knows how long? Oh, you'd better believe that's a check.

*** Most infamously, SeriesMascot Pikachu has had a new cheerful, circle-cheeked, FragileSpeedster electric rodent just like it in every generation, in order: Pichu, Plusle and Minun, Pachirisu, Emolga, Dedenne.
*** Every generation except 6 has a small, cute, [[LostForever unobtainable]] legendary with [[JackOfAllStats an even spread of 100 among all stats]]. In order: Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Shaymin, and Victini. To further the pattern, all but two, Manaphy and Shaymin, are at least part-Psychic-types.
*** The earlier routes are known for having a number of recurring patterns in the ComMons, such as with the Normal Mammals[[note]]Rattata, Sentret, Zigzagoon, Bidoof, Patrat, Bunnelby[[/note]] and the Normal/Flying Birds[[note]]Pidgey, Starly, and Pidove along with Spearow, Hoothoot, and Taillow[[/note]]. ''X and Y'' has noticed the pattern and subverted it; Bunnelby evolves into Diggersby, a ''[[NauseaFuel really not cute]]'' Normal/Ground type who's a MightyGlacier rather than a FragileSpeedster, and Fletchling, who at first appears to be the Normal/Flying bird, evolves into Talonflame, a Fire/Flying type who's [[DiskOneNuke one of the deadliest non-legendary pokémon in existence]].
