* While ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is crammed with Expies as player characters, everyone in the official lore is an OriginalCharacter...except possibly the setting in near-future ShiningCity Laurentia, which is pretty clearly an Expy of [[spoiler:Vancouver]].

%%* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has these everywhere - millionaire playboy with no actual superpowers Justin Sinclair, kilt-clad time traveler Mender Lazarus and [[CaptainAmerica Statesman]] are only a few of the many.

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'':
** The character sprites in alpha were rather blatantly based off of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' combat sprites, but they were thankfully changed for its release on Steam to avoid a lawsuit from Creator/SquareEnix.
** [[spoiler: The Moon Lord]] is obviously [[spoiler:Cthulhu]].[[labelnote:note]]According to WordOfGod, he is Cthulhu's brother.[[/labelnote]]

** Marcassin, who is an absolute dead ringer for Howl of ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle''. In the English version, he even spends his first few moments on screen hiding his face, complaining about how "hideous" he is -- just like Howl does! (This ''is'' Creator/StudioGhibli, however, who are known for their StarSystems.)

* VideoGame/FireEmblem, to the notorious degree, as there are so many similar characters fandom categorized them into [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Archetype archetypes.]]

* While their personalities are distinct, Sion of ''VideoGame/TheBouncer'' saw his design (down to the style and preferred colors on their clothes) almost completely recycled for Sora in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. In particular, the excess [[ChainedByFashion chains]] and [[{{Zipperific}} zippers]] are shared by both characters. [[spoiler: Heightened in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2'' - Xion (whose name in Japanese, Shion, is shared with Sion) is an element of Sora that is ultimately absorbed back into him.]]
