* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has many, but one of the most notable would be Noah Kaiba; the character would be the actual son of Gozaburo Kaiba (Mokuba and Seto's foster father), who conveniently died right before Mokuba and Seto arrived at the Kaiba manor. He also looks a lot like Seto, even though they're not blood-related.
