*** Jean Grey is scared of her telepathic power, and Xavier himself had struggled with his psychic abilities as a child (as mentioned in ''Days of Future Past''), so he relates more strongly to Jean's situation than the difficulties the other young mutants have faced. They have a profound surrogate father-daughter bond because they are the only ones who can fully understand what it's like to be a telepath and the troubles that come with their mutant gift.

---->'''Jean''': ''(upset)'' You don't know what it's like to be afraid to shut your eyes, to be trapped inside your own head.\\
'''Charles''': Oh, I think I do. It wasn't so long ago that I was plagued by voices myself. All their suffering, all their pain, their secrets.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' often gives [[RelationshipValues support conversations]] and/or common endings at A support level to people who are very similar in personalities. I.e., we have the cavalier Kent and the pegasus knight Fiora: both are serious, protective, kind characters who bond over their similarities:

* ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':
** Mutants in general are thrilled to meet another mutants since each one believes they were the only one. The adolescents are then "adopted" by Charles and Erik.
** It's especially intense between [[IJustWantToBeNormal Hank and Raven]] because they possess visible mutations, but they drift apart after the latter begins to accept her real appearance.
** Among the young recruits, Xavier connects more strongly with [=McCoy=] than with the others because both men are scientists with a similar temperament who believe it's important to HideYourOtherness from human society. ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' even goes a step further by showing us that they become HeterosexualLifePartners.

*** Scott Summers and Jean are able to relate to each other when their other classmates look down on them because of the uncontrollable nature of their powers, and gradually, their friendship deepens. Throughout the movie, Jean is emotionally supportive to the newcomer Scott, which mirrors their psychic rapport in the comics.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' has Kasuka Heiwajima and Ruri Hijiribe, both famous celebrities with [[RavenHairIvorySkin pale skin and dark hair]], and both have a stoic demeanour that hides a deep dissatisfaction to their own lives. Their relationship started out as [[TheBeard a ruse]] to distract their enemies from targeting Ruri, but they later form [[BecomingTheMask genuine affection for each other]].

* Frederick and Cherche from ''Videogame/FireEmblemAwakening''. They're both completely loyal to their lords (Chrom and Virion, respectively), {{workaholic}}s that do all the menial chores said lords can't be bothered with without a single complaint, they're both quite well-spoken and abide by strict knightly virtues. If they get married, their ending states that they both keep soldiers in line with their [[TranquilFury "famously disarming smiles".]]

Added DiffLines:

** Surprisingly, [[BlackKnight Prince Xander]] and [[WhiteMage Princess Sakura]] turn out to be more similar than they thought since Sakura is a very shy ShrinkingViolet while Xander used to be one and still is in a sense. Their B and A supports are about them realizing this and starting to bond over it.

* In ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'', the seeming opposites that are Okabe and Kurisu slowly start picking up on [[CommonalityConnection commonality after commonality]] until practically the only thing that separates them is that Kurisu ''[[ClosetGeek pretends]]'' [[ClosetGeek she isn't a nerdy,]] [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Dr. Pepper-guzzling,]] [[NoSocialSkills socially inexperienced,]] {{tsundere}} [[ImageBoard 2channer]] [[NerdsAreVirgins who's never been on a date]] [[LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine and has a fondness for labcoats.]]

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', Griffith and Lucino are in good terms with each other, as both have a calm and serious personality, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and purple hair]]. Their relationship is very subtle because they are just minor characters, but it's strongly implied that they have married between ''[=StrikerS=]'' and ''[[Manga/NanohaForce FORCE]]'', as Lucino has taken Griffith's surname, Lowran.

* Tsuna and Kyoko from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' aren't really very different in personality. They're both determined, both naive and good natured, and both very oblivious to other character's feelings for them (In Kyoko's case, Tsuna's feelings for her; In Tsuna's case, Haru and Gokudera's feelings for him). It doesn't help that due to ArtEvolution, Tsuna and Kyoko are now practically [[http://www.mangareader.net/284-20458-15/katekyo-hitman-reborn/chapter-237.html twins]].

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Lelouch and C.C. resemble each other in many ways. They both have Geass powers, they are both angsty, both have problems with their admirers / love interests (Mao and Shirley, respectively, and later Rolo), and both tend to have rather calm demeanors. One of the traits that is the most similar between them is that they are both very lonely individuals. Lelouch even comes out and says to her, "You're not alone. We are accomplices. If you are a witch, then I am a warlock!"

* Non-romantic example from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''- Sig Curtis and Major Armstrong hit it off immediately, both being [[GentleGiant Gentle Giants]] who love flexing their considerable muscles; Armstrong's older sister Olivier also immediately gets along well with Sig's wife, Izumi, as both of them are [[LadyOfWar Ladies of War]] with a propensity to demonstrate GoodIsNotNice.
** A villainous example: [[MadBomber Kimblee]] is the only human Pride and Envy seem to like, which says something about his [[TheSociopath morals (or lack thereof)]].



* 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.

* One of the more recent arcs of ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'' has the title character develop a IntergenerationalFriendship with Killer Bee who, with all intents and purposes, is an adult version of Naruto.
** In the romantic level, Naruto eventually has this with [[spoiler: Hinata. Despite playing OppositesAttract straight personality-wise, they both suffered of loneliness and being considered as failures during their childhoods, and they grew up having a strong desire to be loved and acknowledged. Hinata is shown to identify herself with Naruto much earlier, which is why she falls in love with him first.]]

* In ''Series/{{ParksAndRecreation}}'' despite the upbeat [[{{ThePollyanna}} Leslie]] being put off by [[{{TheCynic}} Ben's]] initial iciness it's quickly revealed they're both incredible dorks and very competent, driven government employees who just want to make the world a better place. (Amongst other things they're both masters at Model UN and roleplay political figures in their sex life.) Their surface difference also dwindle in time, as Ben loses his cynicism and Leslie becomes marginally more realistic.
