* ''AldnoahZero'' has Slaine Troyard. Rival to TheHero? Check. Blond? Check. Sadly, no mask. While initially lacking the skill and charisma characteristic of your typical Char, he does have traits similar to those of Turn A Gundam's Harry Ord, specifically, loyalty to the princess. [[spoiler: Later, as the series progresses, he gradually becomes a Char's Counterattack type, becoming the BigBad and only going short of Vers becoming a full Zeon clone.]]

* A ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''-style Char clone will be an AntiHero, '''TheRival''' to the main character, a HiddenAgendaVillain and/or a DragonWithAnAgenda and probably many changes between [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor the heroes side and the villains side]].
* A ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]''-style Char clone will be '''TheMentor''' to the main character, OlderAndWiser with a BigBrotherMentor vibe.
* A ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]''-style Char clone will be a KnightTemplar, WellIntentionedExtremist or even a DarkMessiah, and may be a FallenHero as well. The most likely type of the three to be '''[[BigBad The Big Bad]]'''.

* ''[[Anime/GundamBuildFighters Gundam Build Fighters]]'' has the StudentCouncilPresident Tatsuya Yuuki as the closest character to the Trope. He's nicknamed the Crimson Comet, and pilots the Zaku Amazing, a highly customized Zaku II Char Custom; he only falls short for want of blond hair and a mask. He later fully embraces the archetype by donning a pair of [[CoolShades Quattro-style shades]] as Meijin Kawaguchi III - the current inheritor of the title [[spoiler: given to the metaverse's master Gunpla Builder.]] Throughout the series run, he basically is the FriendlyRival to the main characters, before briefly plunging into the role of the Decoy BigBad FinalBoss [[spoiler: due to being BrainwashedAndCrazy]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket'' [[LampshadeHanging nods towards the concept]] near the end of the series, where for most of the fifth episode, resident blond-haired Zeon pilot Bernard Wiseman disguises himself with [[PaperThinDisguise nothing more than]] a pair of CoolShades similar to Char as Quattro in ''Zeta Gundam''.

* VideoGame/Persona5 has its primary human antagonist, Masayoshi Shido. He's a mix of all three types with his shadow form wearing a very similar style of mask (0079), riding around on a very golden embodiment of human slavery (Zeta), and his motivations being to helm the world for the sake of "exceptional" people like himself (Char's Counterattack). Interestingly this pits him against the protagonist, who himself is an expy of Lelouch vi Britannia, yet another Char Clone.

** Rau Le Crueset is one of the darkest takes on the trope, being a Char clone who acts as TheRival to AcePilot Mu La Flaga, and is the BigBad and TheManBehindTheMan to the entire series, simultaneously channeling ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack CCA]]''-era Char's plan up to OmnicidalManiac levels.

* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'': Relius Clover fights with a red robot [[spoiler:who is really Carl Clover's mother]], wears a mask that resembles ThePhantomOfTheOpera, is blond, is TheRival to [[spoiler:his son, Carl]], is co-[[TheDragon Dragon]] to the Imperator Librarius (alongside [[spoiler:Hazama/Terumi]]). Yep. Relius is definitely a Char.

** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Echoes: Shadows of Valentia]]'' has Conrad, a masked individual with mysterious motives who repeatedly saves Celica from danger, and is later revealed to be [[spoiler: her presumed-dead brother.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/ChoiceOfGames Mecha Ace]]'', a digital ChooseYourOwnAdventure story, features a rival AcePilot named Commandant Camille Hawkins, complete with blond hair, CoolMask, AceCustom mech, and RedBaron status. Biggest difference is a blue colour scheme instead of red... and potentially a GenderFlip (the player can optionally select NPC genders).

* VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}
** To a lesser extent in ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII'', a character that appears in the Lowee storyline known as Azna=Leb (he even goes so far as to say a certain line "Y-you hit me! Even my own father never hit me! H-How dare you punch my face... with a fist even!" when Blanc strikes him in anger at the end of the storyline too!)

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket'' doesn't explicitly have a Char clone in Bernie Wiseman, whose only explicit shared attributes are his blonde hair and acting as a {{big brother|Mentor}} figure towards the protagonist - while he is a Zeon pilot, he's actually a really bad one (he's shot down both times we see him in action, and only makes one kill [[spoiler:which comes at the cost of [[TakingYouWithMe sacrificing himself]] to make it]]), and his antagonism towards a Gundam stays as a ''Literature/MobyDick''-style hunt for the suit itself rather than evolving into any sort of rivalry with its pilot - he even gets some ShipTease with said pilot because neither of them know they're on opposite sides. The series does, however, nod towards the concept by having Bernie disguise himself with [[PaperThinDisguise nothing more than]] a pair of CoolShades for the better part of the second half.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory'' has a subversion in Anavel Gato. While he has the looks down, and his plan to [[ColonyDrop recreate Operation British]] is similar to ''CCA'' Char's end goal, he has none of Char's personality traits, and no ulterior motives - he's as die-hard a Zeon fanatic as they come. He also doesn't wear a mask, making ''0083'' one of the few ''Gundam'' series to not feature any masked characters. Kelly Layzner is a more typical Char, with the blonde hair, acting as a temporary mentor for the protagonist, and then going into battle with an all-red mobile armor.
