* In ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'', everyone initially compares Kagome to Kikyo, of whom she is the {{reincarnation}}. They may technically have the "same" face, but the series suffers from OnlySixFaces, so they don't look any more alike than any other two random characters you could pick out. The anime [[AdaptationInducedPlotHole makes this even worse]] than the manga, as there Kikyo and Kagome purposefully differ in hair style, habitual facial expressions, skin tone, and figure--to the point where they're two of the most distinct characters of the same sex and similar age group.

* 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 (and thus figure), 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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'', people constantly mistake Mario for Shadow Mario, and insist that Mario is the one responsible for polluting Isle Delfino; even when they are seen together, characters (including ''Princess Peach'', who's spent more time around Mario than anyone else besides Luigi) insist that they look identical. This despite the fact that Mario has his normal color scheme, while Shadow Mario is uniformly blue from head to toe and appears to be ''made of water''.

* In ''Manga/YuGiOh'', no-one ever seems to see a difference between short, moe, [[TaremeEyes Tareme]]-eyed, soft-voiced Yugi and his not-quite-so-short, bishonen, [[TsurimeEyes Tsurime-eyed]], deep-voiced [[SuperPoweredEvilSide alter ego]]. Some fans have tried to explain the (apparently not so) obvious changes as audio-visual cues to the audience that do not actually exist in-universe. Since every once in a blue moon somebody ''will'' mention one of the changes in passing, this explanation has not been widely accepted. Maybe the others just can't stop staring at the hair. The manga averts this, actually. They all notice the switch between Yugi and his alter ego or at least they notice that he changed.

It gets more ridiculous in Season 5, when the gang travel to Ancient Egypt. The anime adds a scene where the gang meet Atem's [[ShipTease childhood friend]] Mana. She promptly mistakes Yugi for Atem, but now there is not only a height difference but a difference in clothing and also skin colour.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Princess Ember (a dragon) has difficulty telling Twilight Sparkle and Starlight Glimmer apart, since they're "both purple ponies with purple hair", and they "both have cutie marks with sparkly things". Doubles as LeaningOnTheFourthWall as fans have often pointed out the similarity between the two names.
-->'''Starlight Glimmer:''' Mine's more of a glimmer.\\
'''Ember:''' How is that different?

** This is mostly a side effect of the art style; {{CLAMP}} draws adults with long faces, but children with shorter, rounder ones. The result of this is that Sakura's adult brother looks far more like their mother than she does, making it impossible for readers to spot the resemblance. For instance, look at an older alternate version of Sakura in ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'': the resemblance between her and her mother is more noticeable.

** [[spoiler: Yue, and Yukito]], a [[SplitPersonality entity the former created to hide inside are noted by another character to be "just alike," when in actuality they have almost nothing in common whatsoever, despite technically being the same person in a odd way. They are functionally in effect completely separate characters with contrasting personalities and distinctly different appearances.
