* The titular character of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' eventually has this with 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.

* MarvelCinematicUniverse:
**''Series/Daredevil2015'': [[Creator/CharlieCox Matt]] [[BlindJustice Murdock]] [[OfficialCouple and]] [[Creator/DeborahAnnWoll Karen]] [[HotScoop Pa]][[SexySecretary ge]]. Both are driven by a sense of justice, they both have an inner struggle about life and death. They both think other people's lives are worth saving (Grotto and Frank Castle) even if they've done bad things, and they want to seek justice in their own way. They even like the same kind of simple "cheap" life. While Karen doesn't have Matt's fighting skills and needs to be rescued at times, she makes up for that in determination and ingenuity. And unlike Matt, Karen ''has'' actually killed someone (James Wesley).
**''Series/IronFist2017'': Deconstructed with Danny Rand and Colleen Wing. They have an awful lot in common, personality-wise, but Claire Temple points out that this is not necessarily a ''good'' thing, since [[BloodKnight the two have a shared propensity towards solving every problem with violence.]]

* There may be some real-life basis to this as it's better in the long term to have someone who shares similar values to you when you get to things like kids, money, religion etc. People also tend to date people who live close to them.

** 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!"

* ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'' has Cullen and Victoria - serious, well-read history buffs who are very skilled with the use of a sword. They're also both devout Andrastians, and Cullen is an ex-Templar while Victoria almost became a Templar. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they're also TwiceShy.



* In the 2015 ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' Marianne, a fairy princess, and the King of the Goblins may ''look'' like opposites but over the course of the movie they bond over fighting, past heartbreaks and their complete abhorrence to love. [[spoiler:And then they fall for each other.]]

* ''Film/JamesBond'' and many [[BondGirl Bond Girls]] are like this. Both being suave, sexy, seductive, and many times, they share the same occupation and goal. This is the same for the novels to a degree. One reason Bond falls for Vesper Lynd in ''Literature/CasinoRoyale'' is that he finds her easy to talk to and open up to, and they find they have a lot to talk about.
** Creator/JohnLeCarre's conception of Bond adds another element to this. Le Carre disliked Bond and said he's perfect traitor material.[[note]]In case you're wondering, it is the fact that Bond is materialistic, neo-fascistic and completely divorced from any political context. There is the sense that he would have worked for any country as long as the girls were pretty and the martinis dry, obviously a rather negative trait as a spy.[[/note]] (He actually worked in MI6, so he'd probably know.) [[spoiler:Vesper is in fact a traitor.]]

** A great part of the point of ''Pride and Prejudice'' is to show that even if Lizzie and Darcy are both judgemental snobs with a certain disregard for politeness, they can show a great deal of kindness and loyalty and are much more clever and single-minded than any other character, thus being perfectly suited for each other once they smoothe up.

* This is a significant theme in ''Film/GoneWithTheWind''. Scarlett spends the majority of the novel lusting after Ashley, who is different from her in every way that counts. Even though a bunch of characters, most often her father, tell her that like needs to marry like it takes her until the end of the novel to figure out she would be happiest with roguish Rhett Butler. Of course, by the time she clues in, he's sick of her.

* 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/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce FORCE]]'', as Lucino has taken Griffith's surname, Lowran.
