* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'':
** Jonas Venture, Jr. was one of these in his first appearance. He was a twin absorbed by Rusty Venture before birth, and he lived inside Rusty's body for thirty-odd years with no one knowing he existed. When he finally escapes, despite a stunted, deformed body, he insists that he's the more worthy son of Jonas Venture and tries to kill Rusty and take his place. The two reconcile, and from then on Jonas, Jr. is a successful super-scientist and do-gooder. In fact, the roles are reversed, with Rusty becoming envious of J.J.'s accomplishments, as pointed out when Dr. Killinger tries to convert Rusty into a supervillain and J.J.'s archenemy.
** In the episode "Perchance to Dean", D-19 is a very straight example. He was one of the clones of Dean Venture who was aborted in infancy by Rusty for being flawed. He survived, living secretly in the Venture compound, but he was hunchbacked and hideous. He becomes obsessed with winning his father's love, and he plans to overcome his physical flaws by stitching together a [[GenuineHumanHide Dean-suit]] out of the skins of the many other Deans who have died over the years. He even tries to murder the current Dean to complete it.

* ''ComicBook/TheBoys'' has an inversion in the form of [[spoiler:Black Noir]], the [[spoiler:Homelander's]] physically-superior clone, engineered as a SummonBiggerFish safeguard in case the original became uncontrollable. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the Homelander never rebelled, meaning Black Noir was prevented from fulfilling his sole reason for existing. So he started recording himself committing atrocities, gaslighting the Homelander into thinking he was insane until he finally rebelled, allowing Black Noir to intervene.]]

** And of course, Metal Sonic is often portrayed as having such issues. In the Sonic OVA, he eventually [[spoiler:destroys himself]], while in Sonic Heroes, he's driven to usurp Eggman, take over his army, and use the powers of Perfect Chaos, Shadow, and most of the cast to [[OneWingedAngel become Metal Overlord.]] The twist is that in Heroes, Metal believes Sonic is ''his'' copy.
