** Peridot assumes this trope will be at play with [[spoiler:[[ArcVillain Jasper]] in comparison to Amethyst because [[spoiler:Jasper came from Earth's Beta Kindergarten, which was a horribly mismanaged rush-job designed to pump out as much CannonFodder for the Gem War as possible, while Amethyst came from the perfectly managed Alpha Kindergarten]] and thus [[spoiler:Jasper]] should be inherently inferior to Amethyst. [[spoiler:It turns out to be an ''inversion''. Jasper, due to [[FreakLabAccident pure random chance]], ended up being the ''most physically perfect Gem Peridot had ever seen'' and [[UltimateLifeform the "Ultimate Quartz"]].]]

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand''. One episode's plot revolves around [[EvilTwin XL]] stealing the one part that heroic XR has and he doesn't--by grabbing XR and ripping it out of his chest, while he's still fully conscious. This sends XR into a manic-depressive state over losing this part, as he now thinks ''he's'' the worthless one. [[spoiler:It turns out the part was a worthless air-freshener device.]]
** Even more so, [[spoiler: the air-freshener was only put in because the aliens that had built him could smell an odor. Everyone who worked with him were incapable of noticing the change once the device was removed.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'': Spider-Carnage is a demented EvilTwin of Spider-Man. Hailing from an AlternateUniverse he is his world's version of Peter Parker... maybe. An encounter with Miles Warren resulted in Peter (already highly unstable following the deaths of Uncle Ben and Aunt May) being cloned. The clone took up the identity of the Scarlet Spider and became a productive member of the superhero community, while Peter became enraged, feeling that Ben's existence threatened his own. And then TheReveal came in from Curt Connors--Peter might actually be the clone. This news pushes him over the edge, attracts the Carnage symbiote to him, and sends of the path towards [[OmnicidalManiac destroying]] [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum all reality]] [[ApocalypseHow in a Class Z apocalypse]].
