* [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Ash Crimson]] is an odd example of this archetype in that he embodies the traits of all three variations of Char at once. He wears red, sports platinum-blond hair, essentially upstages the entire collective cast at every turn (no, really), and schemes to steal the powers of the ''[[PublicDomainArtifact Three]]'' [[PublicDomainArtifact Sacred Treasures]] (Kyo, Iori, and Chizuru; he succeeds in depowering [[spoiler:the latter two]]). He's set up as a {{Hidden Agenda|Villain}} VillainProtagonist, [[spoiler:but is shown to be a WellIntentionedExtremist, working to counter-act his time-hopping [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Ancestor]] in order to keep his best friend/older sister figure/rival Elisabeth safe.]]

** ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' has Chronicle Asher, who isn't as iconic an example as some, but still fits the bill as TheRival.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' was supposed to have Char but that was cancelled when ''Char's Counterattack'' was given the green light. Instead they got Glemmy Toto, a blond, charming [[TeensAreMonsters 17-year old]], who has all of Char's manipulative ability and piloting skill, serves as a rival to two of the main characters, and eventually sets himself up as a rival to the BigBad. He also seems to have Char's predilection for younger girls, although given his own age, that's hard to tell.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has Asuka Langley Soryuu. She wears red, pilots a red EVA unit, is TheRival to Shinji Ikari, and serves as the show's resident AcePilot. Her ''Rebuild'' counterpart takes this further, with her EVA unit having '''three''' forms, and she wears an eyepatch as of '''3.33'''.

* Similar to Godot above, Ravus Nox Fleuret from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' embodies many of the original Char's traits despite not being from a mecha-game[[note]]At least, not technically; the game ''does'' feature mecha in the form of {{Magitek}} armor, but Ravus never pilots one himself[[/note]]: blond hair, lost a parent to the villains, joins the villains' side to further his own agenda, holds a high rank in their military, has a sister on the heroes' side and wears a hood that covers his face. To take it one step further, his being a [[FallenPrincess former prince]] parallels fellow Char Clone Milliardo Peacecraft/Zechs Merquise.

As expected from the TropeNamer, there is at least one of them among its various {{Alternate Universe}}s, most of them are even sourced in Nikkei published ''Otona no Gundam''(Gundam for adult, a book analyzing the economical impact of Gundam):

* ''Literature/TheHeroicLegendOfArslan'' has a man mostly known as Silvermask (real name Hermes), who wears a silver mask to hide [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Zuko-like]] burn on his face, that was a result from a tragic incident in his youth. He is introduced as a DragonWithAnAgenda, then it is revealed that he is a LongLostRelative of Parsian's royal family, and he eventually becomes a member of BigBadEnsemble. Visual cues aside, he is even voiced by Char's Japanese VA in an Ova adaptation.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'': The irony being that since the series is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, you will often find several Char clones alongside Char ''himself'' in the same game!

** Done again with Sleigh Presty, who pilots a high-speed red mech and gains the nickname of the "Scarlet Comet." The characters were actually going to call her something starting with "Re-", but one of them [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] to stop them, saying they'll be sued. And once again, you can have her face off against the real "Red Comet" in her debut game.
** Kyosuke Nanbu. Pilots a red, horned mech? Check. Acts as TheRival (From another point of view) and TheMentor? Check. Has blond hair? Semi-checked. Lampshaded in one of the 4koma's where Quattro confronts Kyosuke that the blond bangs at the tip of his hair are actually a fail attempt to dye his hair blond so that he can become a complete CharClone.

** The second season introduces a new masked antagonist known only as "Vidar". [[spoiler:However it's clearly Gaelio, if his [[Creator/MasayaMatsukaze voice]], use of a remodelled Gundam Kimaris, and grudge against [=McGillis=] didn't give it away. Which is interesting because it's the first time in the franchise where a character has been a Char Clone '''and''' a Garma Clone at the same time.]]
