* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'', Kaeloo says that fraternal twins Pretty and Eugly resemble each other. Pretty was not amused.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/BloodBrothers'', Mickey and Eddie are supposed to be identical twins. This has not stopped some productions from casting actors who have very different appearances.
* In ''Theatre/TheWomanInWhite'', Laura Fairlie and Anne Catherick are supposed to look similar, but are often played by actresses who look different from one another.

Added DiffLines:

* Played for all kinds of laughs in ''[[VideoGame/{{Shantae}} Shantae and the Pirate's Curse]]''. Shantae, Risky Boots, Sky, and Rottytops are all mistaken for the missing princess of the Tan Line Temple and held against their will. Mind you, these are four [[MsFanservice very attractive women]], though with their different (and often fantastic) [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation skin]] and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair hair]] colors, they're not even particularly easy to mistake for ''each other''. The actual princess? Short and dumpy, not even slightly similar in appearance to ''any'' of the four. Risky threatens the High Priest with violence after realizing who she's being confused with. The townspeople only seem to notice after the princess returns (she was just shopping), and the High Priest remains confused even then.

* An interesting case happens in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' because of the artist's style changes. Part III protagonist Jotaro Kujo is supposed to look identical to his grandfather Joseph Joestar in his 30s, to a point [[spoiler: Joseph's mistress Tomoko Higashikata mistakes him for her lover.]] Jotaro's appearances in Part III, IV, and VI are all during the ArtEvolution periods, meaning that Jotaro never looks like Joseph in the slightest to the readers, unless you count Araki's recent redesigns, which suffer from an extreme case of OnlySixFaces.

** At least until the [[SpotTheImposter inevitable fight]] where they both get the overalls ripped off, leaving two Stewies in diapers. (quickly lampshaded)

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII,'' the members of Organization XIII keep calling Sora "Roxas". This is... confusing, since to some degree they seem to actually believe he is Roxas, but they're also messing with his head, and it's hard to tell which is happening.
** With later revelations about the nature of Roxas and nobodies, the Organization had reason to believe that Roxas ''could'' become the dominant persona. [[spoiler:However, as Roxas had personal reasons to hate the Organization, getting him to take charge would have been bad for them.]]

happening. Sora and Roxas ''do'' have the same face, but they also have completely different hair and mannerisms, so it's kind of hard to actually confuse the two.

* Something similar happens ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV''. Yuzu comes across with Yuto who looks exactly like Yuya does... except not really. They have similar faces, but their hair, voices, clothes, and mannerisms are completely different. Despite this, Yuzu stays uncertain for a long time that they're really not the same person. Several other characters comment on how he looks exactly like the splitting image of Yuya. There's also Yugo, who looks even more different from Yuya than Yuto does, but once again the show insists that they look exactly alike. Then we met Yuri who looks even more different than Yuya but everyone again says the same thing. And then there are Yuzu's looklikes Ruri, Serena and Rin, but the resemblence between them is stronger than Yuya and his lookalikes.

* In ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'', everyone initially compares Kagome to Kikyo. They may technically have the "same" face (as it turns out they have the same soul), but when the series suffers from OnlySixFaces and Kikyo and Kagome purposefully differ in hair style, habitual facial expressions, skin tone, and age, they don't look alike at all - at least, not any more alike than any other two random characters you could pick out. The anime has it worse, so that it's almost an AdaptationInducedPlotHole there.

* InUniverse in the ComicBook/HarleyQuinn comics. The third issue has a man who says he can never hold down a job because he looks just like...''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker'' (Harley had guessed Al Gore with a bad haircut). He doesn't and is clearly delusional, eventually leading to his own death out of sheer idiocy.

* Played with in ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''. Cecil and Kevin are mentioned to be completely identical, aside from the latter's BlackEyesOfEvil. This carries over to the live version, where it can be clearly seen that [[TheDanza Cecil Baldwin and Kevin Free]] look practically [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130824114354/nightvale/images/3/3f/Tumblr_inline_mqrorcXE8c1qz4rgp.jpg nothing]] [[http://www.mindspill.bygbaby.com/uploaded_images/kevinf.jpg alike]]. WordOfGod says that only the descriptions in the podcast are canon, which are so far [[SuspectIsHatless irrelevant to anything besides clothing]].
