*** The odds of same gender fraternal twins should be very slightly below 50%, assuming an exactly equal number of X and Y chromosome sperm from the father.

** Eventually, this was averted in a strange way. After several recasts, the original Marley actress returned, but Vicky was not recast. The explanation was Marley had an accident that resulted in MagicalPlasticSurgery that somehow also left he several inches taller than she'd been before the accident.

* Though ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' plays this straight with the Nishigori triplets, it's averted with the Crispino twins; aside from having the same purple eyes, Michele and Sara look very different from one another.

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' has Axel, Lutz and Loop Nishigori, who are identical triplets. They can be told apart by their [[ColorCodedCharacters differently-colored outfits]] and hairstyles.

* ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'': Fee and Foo are fraternal twin {{Cartoon Creature}}s who have obvious similarities, but look so different from each other (Foo appears to have some sort of antenna that Fee lacks) that is comes off as BizarreSexualDimorphism.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has Scott and Sara Ryder, a pair of opposite sex fraternal twins, one of whom is the player character (the player chooses which one to play as). While they do look alike on account that they're siblings, they're still fairly distinct enough from each other that they don't fall into HalfIdenticalTwins.

* L and R Nomura of ''Music/MarginalNumber4''. They have different hair colors - yellow and green, as part of their unit's [[ColorCodedCharacters color motifs]], but besides that they're almost completely identical. It isn't stated whether or not both of them have their natural color.

* Both versions of ''Film/TheParentTrap''. Notable that at least the twins start out easily distinguishable in appearance and general behaviour. It's only after weeks of training and studying that they're able to impersonate each other.

* The main character Jared and his brother Simon from ''Literature/TheSpiderwickChronicles''''Literature/TheSpiderwickChronicles''. Amusingly enough in the film adaptation, they were both played by Freddie Highmore but a lot of viewers didn't realise it was the same actor.

* Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell on ''Series/SisterSister'' are long-lost identical twins, played by real life twins Tia and Tamera Mowry. For a while producers even had one twin wear a fake mole to match the other, but they eventually abandoned this. The fifth season's main goal was to distinguish the sisters' personalities even more.



* Zack and Cody on ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'', also played by Real Life twins. Puberty made them not so identical.

* Zack and Cody on ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'', also played by Real Life twins. Puberty made them not so identical. A set of British twin girls were recurring characters too. Naturally they go on double dates with Zack and Cody.



* Series/{{Friends}}: Phoebe and Ursula, which allows various friends and colleagues to mistake them for each other in Ursula's first episode. Amusingly when they think Phoebe is doing porn movies, Joey refuses to watch the video. But when they discover it's actually Ursula, he has no problem.

Amusingly when they think Phoebe is doing porn movies, Joey refuses to watch the video. But when they discover it's actually Ursula, he has no problem. The twin thing was a ThrowItIn moment as Lisa Kudrow initially played Ursula on ''Series/MadAboutYou'', and then was cast in ''{{Series/Friends}}''. In order to 'explain' why Lisa was on two shows at once, the network made Phoebe and Ursula twin sisters.



* Producers of ''Series/SisterSister'' tried to really play this straight by making one twin wear a fake mole to match the other. But around Season 5, they abandoned this. One of the aims of that season was to properly distinguish the sisters' personalities.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''The Famine Secret'' by Cora Harrison, the protagonists are a set of twin sisters - Deirdre and Fiona. Deirdre has blue eyes and brown curls, while Fiona has brown eyes and blonde locks. Deirdre resembles her younger brother more than her own twin sister. A paragraph from the POV of the matron has her wondering if they're actually twins, since they're not even the same height.
