Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/OrphanBlack'': It turns out that of the numerous clones, two ([[spoiler:Sarah and Helena]]) are actually twins. Their birth mother was implanted with an embryo like all the others, but it split inside her. In this case it's justified that they're identical; fraternal twins are when two eggs are fertilized at the same time, which of course was impossible in this case.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'':
** Averted in the case of Natsume and Orie Sendawara; Natsume is far more outspoken and aggressive than Orie, and tends to dress in quite provocative outfits, whereas Orie is calmer, meeker and tends to go for a cuter style. However, both of them are gourmets with extremely sensitive palates and have no hesitation whatsoever when it comes to shooting down unworthy efforts.
** Defied it the case of the Aldini brothers, with several characters expressing shock at the fact that the two are even related, much less twins. Takumi is short, slender, blonde, blue-eyed, artistic, sensitive and highly strung. Isami is tall, stocky (usually) brown-haired, brown-eyed, calm, down-to-earth and practical.

* While the title quads in ''Series/NickyRickyDickyAndDawn'' are an aversion, the Kramden quads are two sets of identical twins.

* Sherri and Terri, as well as Terri from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
** Marge's older sisters,
Patty and Selma Bouvier, they're identical twins, so they're mostly the same in physical appearance and even their personalities, but their haircuts, dresses and even their sexualities are different (Patty eventually came out as a lesbian while Selma's heterosexual and has been married numerous times). Also, Selma has an adopted daughter from China named Ling and is the somewhat nicer twin of her and Patty--for example, when it comes to Marge's husband, Homer, Selma, from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. at times, has been shown to be a bit more willing to put up with him than Patty is.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''VideoGame/NancyDrew'' game "Warnings at Waverly Academy", there are the identical twins Rachel and Kim Hubbard. [[TwinSwitch However, Rachel snuck Kim in without anybody knowing it and before the truth comes out, sometimes you speak to Rachel and other times to Kim.]] The only way to tell Rachel and Kim apart is that Kim always tucks a stray lock of hair behind her ear; Rachel doesn't.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/HighSchoolStarMusical'', Nayuki's younger sisters, Tsumugi and Yuki, look identical, though they are PolarOppositeTwins in personality. [[spoiler: Tsubasa and Itsuki]] are fraternal twins, though.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/HighSchoolStarMusical'' [[spoiler: Otori and Hiiragi]] are revealed to be not just brothers, but fraternal twins, separated by [[spoiler: their grandfather, who needed an heir]].


Added DiffLines:

* It is unclear whether [[ThemeTwinNaming L and R]] Nomura of ''Anime/MarginalNumber4'' are identical or fraternal twins. They have different hair colors, but that could be dyed ([[YouGottaHaveBlueHair dandelion orange and lime green]]). R is 2 cm taller, but that could be due to other things.

** It's more likely that this second pair of twins is an identical one, as there is a very small chance fraternal twins are of the same gender. Also, [[spoiler:Dipper and Mabel have always been more open-minded than Stanley and Stanford]], and are often said to have 'more heart' in the fandom. [[spoiler:[[GeniusBonus There have been studies showing that opposite-gender twins might naturally be more open-minded and accepting than same-gender twins]]]].
*** 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.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', Dr. Director and Gemini are twins. Gemini identifies himself as Dr. Director's "opposite in every way", which apparently includes looks; they barely look ''related'', much less twins.

This trope is so pervasive that it even manifests when the twins are [[UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn different genders]] -- HalfIdenticalTwins shouldn't even ''be'' identical! Though it is certainly possible for fraternal twins to bear a StrongFamilyResemblance, particularly in early childhood.

If the twins are [[ConjoinedTwins conjoined]], they will most certainly be identical, as this is the case in RealLife, although fiction often allows for the possibility of non-identical, or even opposite gender, conjoined twins, generally for the RuleOfFunny.

* In ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' several characters are twins, and there's usually at least one pair in each continuity. However they are never identical - at the very least they have strikingly different colours like Jetfire and Jetstorm in ''TransformersAnimated'' and other times they look different in many other ways, like Sideswipe and Sunstreaker in G1 - who even had radically different personalities. This is obviously [[MerchandiseDriven for the purpose of making and selling more toys.]] Family relationships are actually rarely used to explain the PaletteSwap characters, who get a more technical explanation if it's explained at all.
