* Olivia, Tate, and Zoey from ''{{Weesh}}'' are rather obviously modeled on Alex, Riley, and Tristan from the author's earlier ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie''. (Zoey is a teenager and Tate is a [[GenderFlip boy]], but other than that...)

** Given that Lord English, in both name and [[LordBritishPostulate properties]], is (at first unintentionally, but later [[AscendedFanon canonically]]) similar to [[NighInvulnerable Lord British]] of ''VideoGame//{{Ultima}}'', it seems that his servant [[spoiler: [[MonsterClown Gamzee]]'s]] miraculous inability to die in all timelines, despite such extreme injuries as [[{{Determinator}} taking dozens of Caliborn's bullets in the chest]], makes him an expy of Chuckles.

** In Act 6, we meet the Alpha kids, [[spoiler: aka alternate universe counterparts of the original kid's guardians, ]] who share some similarities to the [[spoiler: dead ]]trolls. Jane Crocker shares many similarities to [[GenkiGirl Feferi]] [[spoiler: and is related to her by adoption]], Jake English has similarities to [[BoisterousBruiser Equius]] and mirrors Eridan in many ways, Roxy is an odd mix of [[PlayfulHacker Sollux]], [[TheAlcoholic Gamzee]], and [[CatGirl Nepeta]], and Dirk is Equius and Rose.

[[spoiler: Their aspect and Rose.even their relationships tie into this. ]]
*** This isn't completely done without a callback to the fact that the session of the Alpha kids is [[spoiler: a doomed session, and mirrors the fact that the trolls the Alpha kids are based off, are all dead. The session of the Beta kids is the scratched one, and the fact that the patron trolls of the Beta kids (Vriska, Kanaya, Terezi and Karkat) are still alive.]]

* Miranda, Timothy, and Reseda from ''Webcomic/ButImACatPerson'' are AU versions of original characters from the author's earlier fancomic, ''Webcomic/AndShineHeavenNow''. Ann Walker is a derivative of that comic's AU version of ''LittleOrphanAnnie''. Several readers have identified Stuart Cohen as resembling (a sinister AU version of) [[TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]].

%% 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.
