* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' you meet Chunk, a cheerful FatIdiot security guard, during a quest to infiltrate a gallery, he then returns later on in the game as a lobby guard in the [=LaCroix=] Building. But it is actually possible to kill Chunk in the first encounter, which will result in the lobby guard being his identical twin brother, who is equally as clumsy, dimwitted, and happy-go-lucky as the original Chunk.

Though, in contrast to the happy-go-lucky as and chatty Chunk, his brother [[TheVoiceless never speaks a word to the original Chunk.player]].

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'': In Chapter 1, Monokuma kills Ultimate Fashionista Junko Enoshima by [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice launching several spears through her body]]. And then, in Chapter 5, the mysterious 16th student shows up as the victim. It turns out the ''real'' Junko Enoshima is working behind the scenes as the Mastermind; she pulled a TwinSwitch with her twin sister Mukuro Ikusaba (the aforementioned 16th student) who disguised herself as her. Junko then killed her twin sister in Chapter 1, and used her body to fake the murder of Chapter 5 in order to frame Kyoko Kirgiri.

* In season 10 of ''Series/MurdochMysteries'', the recurring character of dilettante hobbyist and UpperClassTwit Roger Newsome (Cyrus Lane) is killed off. The following season introduces his brother Rupert (Cyrus Lake with impressive facial hair). He is also introduced as involved in the Hobby of the Week (cricket), but unlike his brother's amiable foolishness, has a strong line in aristocratic outrage.

* Neil Dylandy a.k.a Lockon Stratos was killed by the end of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' but came back for the second season as his twin brother Lyle Dylandy a.k.a Lockon Stratos II. In this case [[ChekhovsGunman the twin's existence was revealed in a brief scene]] early in the series, and later on it veers into DeconstructedTrope. The first thing Lyle made sure to tell his teammates in Celestial Being is he's ''not'' his older twin Neil's ReplacementGoldfish, even preferring to put on a JerkAssFacade than leading Feldt on, since she was in love with his deceased brother. He also prefers to use a different style of gun fighting to contrast Neil's sniping method, although he also uses it frequently. Basically, both twins are Lockon Stratos, but they are at the same time their very own persons with different views on life, love, and revenge.

* In the first ''GearsOfWar'', Anthony Carmine gets shot, and dies. In the sequel, his brother Ben Carmine (who sounds exactly the same and is almost a clone in personality) shows up, makes himself at home as a MauveShirt, and then dies. In the third game, we meet their brother Clay Carmine, [[spoiler:who survives and presumably [[SincerityMode lived a long, full life]].]] [[AllThereInTheManual The fourth brother, Dietrich Carmine, was a civilian who died long before any of his brothers did.]]

** Given that Ben introduces himself as "one of the four Carmine brothers! Well... three now..." [[SarcasmMode it's believed that the other two brothers will lead long, full lives]].
*** In the third game, we meet their brother Clay Carmine, [[spoiler: who survives and presumably [[SincerityMode lived a long, full life]].]] No word on that fourth brother though.

* In ''MortalKombat II'', the original Sub-Zero was killed by Scorpion during the first game's tournament and is replaced by his younger brother, who adopted his identity. Noob Saibot, a character also introduced in ''II'', would later be revealed to be the original Sub-Zero.
** In ''Mortal Kombat 9'', the story plays itself out again; in fact, this is a sign that Raiden's plans to alter the future are failing.

* To the surprise of many, Peter Malboro, in season three of the French-Canadian show ''Series/LeCoeurASesRaisons'', became the only character in the series to be unfortunate enough to get KilledOffForReal (well, except Doug Montgomery, whose death set the entire series in motion). But fear not, as he had a twin, Peter Malboro! The only difference is that he combed his hair the opposite way and a very slight difference in their first name's pronunciation. This Peter proceeds to fill the exact same role, and engages in a relationship with Peter 1's girlfriend. It is explained that the two Peters never appeared at the same time because they only had one set of clothes. When one was wearing it, the other had to stay home in underwear.
** Since it is a NoFourthWall series, it is '''lampshaded''' by Brett.
