* Lenalee and Allen from ''Manga/DGrayMan'' are pretty similar in personality (especially in the manga). They're both pretty serious (although Lenalee is a bit more so), both have moments of GetAHoldOfYourselfMan (with one slapping some sense into the other, and the other apologizing and thanking them), and they both have very similar goals and views. Also, love relationship-wise, they're both very not aggressive, and tend to be extremely shy. If they were to get together, it would be pretty hard to say who would wear the pants in the relationship, honestly.

** Camilla also bonds well with Tharja due to the devotion they harbor towards Corrin and Robin, respectively. They even have a support conversation discussing these traits, taking them to the extreme through "bird-watching" and "dragon-watching".

* Pops up in a semi-romantic sense (the attraction is one-sided) in ''Manga/BlackButler'': [[spoiler:Dr. Angelina "Madame Red" Durless, furious at prostitutes so casually having abortions when she can't have children herself after a terrible miscarriage, snaps and brutally murders one - and is interrupted by Grell, a shinigami. Grell, however, is a male-to-female {{transsexual}}, who's quite unhappy at having a male body. Both women are redheads, are more interested in killing than is good for them, '''and''' both are extremely frustrated that they can't give birth]]. And that's why we have UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is this with Hinata. In terms of personality and fighting style, they epitomize OppositesAttract. Otherwise, they're very similar. Both were considered failures by everyone around them, both suffered because of the respective statuses they have carried since birth, and both wanted to be acknowledged and accepted. Both are really nice, dorky, determined, loyal, and insecure. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the databooks]], they share similar habits and likes, from the food they like to their hobbies with plants. Their respective signature colors--Orange and Purple--share the common color {{Red|StringOfFate}} on the [[https://designcode.io/cloud/chapter1/Colors-Wheel.png color wheel]]. Finally, both are incredibly empathetic, despite living in a world where that trait is easily looked down upon. This is one of the reasons why they developed a strong friendship [[spoiler:that grew into love]].

* In ''The Hellfire Club'' by Peter Straub, this is the reason why villainous SerialKiller Dick Dart claims he [[StalkerWithACrush loves and adores]] Nora. Because of a misunderstanding on his part where he thought she had kidnapped a woman and tortured her horribly for several days, he comes to believe that they are alike. He even comes out and says that he's so happy he found a female version of himself. In wit and many other ways, they ''are'' shown to be a worthy match... the only thing is that Nora is ''not'' fond of [[AxCrazy killing people in bloody ways]].

* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]] does this for Italy and Japan. Despite having vastly different personalities, they both liked literature, anime, manga, fencing, food, and cats. They both even cosplayed as Light Yagami and Teru Mikami respectively from [[Anime/DeathNote]]. To say Germany wasn't pleased at this would be a ''massive'' understatement.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Chandler and Monica seem to be OppositesAttract at first glance, (he's a laid-back, snarky, commitment phobe, she's a uptight control freak desperate for a serious relationship), however the moment you glance below the surface they're very similar. They both suffered [[ParentalNeglect difficult childhoods]], are very neurotic, insecure but hugely loyal, value trust and stability, and essentially hold their circle of friends together. The key is that while their ''reactions'' are different, their issues are similar and so they can understand each other. (Which is very much TruthInTelevision.) This conversation sums up their shared issues well:
--> '''Chandler''': Is that why you became a chef? So that people would like you?
--> '''Monica''': Oh, you really want to talk about getting people to like you huh, funny man?

* Carly and Freddie on ''Series/ICarly'', especially when compared to the other member of their PowerTrio, Sam. Most notable in ''iSell Penny Tee's'' with the contrasting styles in running their t-shirt factories. Sam runs her 'factory' like a child labour sweatshop, while Carly and Freddie run their way by being nice and fun.

* The Doctor from ''Series/DoctorWho'' has this relationship with both [[EvilCounterpart The Master]] and [[LadyofAdventure River Song]]. Ironically, this causes him to dislike them, rather than like them, although River does [[OfficialCouple grow on him]].
** As of ''The Doctor's Wife'' we can add [[RoboShip the TARDIS]] to the list.
