* 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. 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.

Later human/Nobody pairs ''are'' basically identical (for example, the only difference between [[spoiler:Axel]] and [[spoiler:an adult Lea]] is the facial markings on the former), making it seem even weirder.

* An interesting case happens in ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' because of the artist's style changes. [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Part 3]] 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]] in [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Part 4.]] Jotaro's appearances in every Part he appears in are all during periods of ArtEvolution, 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).

* ''Manga/SuperGals'': When Ran visited Taiwan for a study tour, she was mistaken for Vivian Lin, who apparently [[IndenticalStranger look a lot like her]]. However, due to the series' OnlySixFaces art style, they look no more identical than any other pair.

* 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.

* 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.
