* ''Theatre/TheAltos'' uses it as a quick gag where an audience member is gunned down backstage, and then immediately reintroduced as "their twin brother".

*The [[Creator/MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen Olsen twins]] comedy ''Film/NewYorkMinute'': Jane (Ashley) isn't there to make her speech while Roxy (Mary-Kate) is there with Jane's notebook. So she tries to do Jane's speech for her (and fails miserably). [[spoiler: Luckily, Jane shows up anyway]].

*** This also serves as a MythologyGag as the comic version of SHIELD has a long history of using such androids, called LMD's as an explanation for characters coming back from the dead.

* 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 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.

* Used in a Japanese martial arts movie. A man is killed off by thugs for being the heir to some rich guy, but unbeknownst to the killers he had a SeparatedAtBirth twin brother. This brother has grown up to be a BadAss martial artist and won't go down as easy as his brother did.

** The series hung a [[{{Lampshade}} lampshade]] on it with characters openly wondering how many Koenig brothers there were, and Billy trolling Trip by implying he was a mass-produced android.

* Parodied in the ''HancocksHalfHour'' TV episode "The Bowmans". Hancock's radio soap character is killed off because of his bad acting, but it turns out the character was so popular the show's ratings will suffer without him. The producers suggest bringing him back as his twin. Hancock agrees, but only if he gets a pay rise, writes his own scripts, and gets rid of all the actors who criticized his performances by having their characters all fall down a disused mine shaft.

** Played worryingly straight in the semi-official straight-to-video ''Doctor Who'' spin-off series ''P.R.O.B.E.''. In the video "The Devil of Winterborne", the character of Barbara Taploe, played by Charmian May, is killed. When they came to do a sequel, "Ghosts of Winterborne", producer Bill Baggs convinced writer Creator/MarkGatiss to make the new headmistress Margaret Wyndham her twin sister, so they could use the actress again. Gatiss has expressed his horror that her first line (inserted without his knowledge) is "No, I'm her twin sister"...at which point everyone carries on as if nothing happened.
