* ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' has an unusual example of a villain doing this to ''himself'': late in the show [[spoiler:Enter]], attempting to gain ThePowerOfHate for himself, deliberately begins copying more and more of Hiromu's abilities, fighting style, and eventually even his Buster form. It even reaches the point where his face begins to morph into Hiromu's at times.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/ArchiesWeirdMysteries'' shows Veronica accidentally causing the populace of Riverdale to start gradually turning into duplicates of herself after making a misguided wish on a wish-granting artifact that everyone was more like her. By the time Veronica is able to reverse this, the whole town is filled with snobby teenage girls and even Archie and Betty are starting to not act like themselves.

Since this [[DeathOfPersonality basically]] involves killing the person the clone's "made" from, this trope tends to be the preserve of villains. Indeed since cloning's become possible in RealLife, (and no longer automatically brings to mind a MadScientist), this is a good way for a writer to keep the act of cloning someone as ethically questionable. A villain who makes a habit of it might also be TheVirus (especially if the clones are able to transform people as well).
