* ''Anime/GundamBuildDivers'' plays with this trope. In Episode 3, [[TheAce Kyoya Kujo]] dons a mask and a knight-like outfit in an attempt to join a group of beginners to weed out "Mass-Divers", cheaters within Gundam Battle Nexus Online. His disguise his incredibly flimsy (he even calls himself "Kyoya" and claims that his looks and name are because he admires Kyoya.) and he horribly breaks character. Riku and Yukio fall for it, though Momoka, despite having just joined and not knowing much of Gundam, is incredibly suspicious, though Yukio tries to brush it off as masked men are common in Gundam. The ruse doesn't even last an episode as he's forced to reveal himself when protecting Sarah and Momoka from a rampaging Devil Gundam, destroying his disguise.

Char Clone is a character-specific subtrope of FountainOfExpies. Compare StockShonenRival, ShanaClone, ReiAyanamiExpy, and DarthVaderClone[[note]]The fact that many traits are shared between these two character archetypes is [[FollowTheLeader not entirely coincidental]][[/note]]. [[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused]] with expies of [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Robin}}'': Red Hood is Franchise/{{Batman}}'s crime-fighting rival who comes off of as a WellIntentionedExtremist due to his utter disdain for Batman's [[ThouShaltNotKill one rule]]. His deadlier fighting style and namesake CoolHelmet gives him a Char look.

* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' has Meta Knight, the eponymous hero's rival, mentor, AloofAlly, and one-time WellIntentionedExtremist. He wears a mask, commands a {{Cool|Airship}} {{Faceship}}, and fights with techniques similar to Kirby's Sword and Wing abilities. The DramaticUnmask is {{parodied}}; whenever Meta Knight is beaten, his mask comes off and he's revealed to look like a blue PaletteSwap of Kirby before he bashfully teleports away.

* Zuko from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': He starts out as a pseudo-StockShonenRival / DragonWithAnAgenda, out to capture Aang in hopes of restoring his honor within the Fire Nation. Over the course of the series, he learns [[TakeOverTheWorld that the plans of his forefathers]] were not as noble as he was led to believe. [[spoiler: After several false starts, Zuko eventually makes a HeelFaceTurn to teach Aang Firebending (becoming something of a BigBrotherMentor to him) and defeat [[AbusiveParents his father]], becoming his RedeemingReplacement at the end of the series.]] He typically wears red with gold trim ([[ColorCodedElements the colors of]] [[ElementalNation Fire Nation royalty]]), has a [[ScarsAreForever burn scar]] over his left eye, [[spoiler: and is revealed to be a descendant of Aang's [[{{Reincarnation}} past life]], Avatar Roku.]]

* ''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).

He's also got the same voice actor as Char, Creator/ShuichiIkeda, in Japanese.

Interestingly this pits him against the protagonist, who himself is an expy of Lelouch vi Britannia, yet another Char Clone.

* ''DynastyWarriorsGundam'' series features several Char clones, as well as Char himself. The original, if memory serves, only has Char and Milliardo. The Sequel adds more of Char himself and adds Athrun. #3 adds Full Frontal and Shwartz Bruder to the player's options, and features Milliardo and Char fighting on the same side. Mr. Bushido is available as DLC.

* Adam Taurus of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' checks fewer boxes than most examples, but does make the cut. He's the former mentor and lover for one of the main heroes, Blake Belladonna, who became a bitter enemy to her for her defection from the White Fang. He wears a unique mask compared to other members of the White Fang. He has red hair and wears red as part of his RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver motif, and proves himself to be a DragonWithAnAgenda in Volume 4 and 5 by [[spoiler:murdering the High Leader of the White Fang in a coup and taking over himself]].

* ''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.]]
