** In ''All-New Wolverine'' she is ''very'' insistent that her own clones are and should be treated as people.

** Taken a step further when while having an argument with him, Ellen demands to know why Tedd, who started the series of events that led to her creation, never apologized for it. Tedds answer is epically {{Heartwarming}} because he refuses to apologize because he doesn't regret that Ellen exists.

Tedds answer is epically {{Heartwarming}} because he refuses to heartwarming: -->'''Tedd''': Yeah, I screwed up a lot, and maybe I could apologize because he doesn't regret for that, but if I hadn't, you wouldn't exist! I am ''not'' sorry that Ellen exists.you exist! If you're the result of my mistakes, then they were the best mistakes I ever made!

* A major plot point in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' involves the main characters convincing [[spoiler:Mikoto]]'s clones of this. Originally, they were perfectly content with [[ExpendableClone dying for the sake of the experiment]].

* A major plot point in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' involves the main characters convincing [[spoiler:Mikoto]]'s clones of this. Originally, they were perfectly content with [[ExpendableClone dying for the sake of the experiment]]. Afterward, while they still often act in unison and seem interchangeable, there's evidence as time goes on that they're starting to develop slight differences in their individual personalities.

* The 3rd Loki owes their existence to a misfired CloningGambit by the original Loki. Misfired because whatever was past Loki's true essence it got destroyed or lost in the process so the resulting ''clone'' body had a new soul and the personality copy originally intended to restore his memories and powers ended up killing an innocent child when it took over... and feeling very guilty about it. They spent most of ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' and ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' trying to figure out how to be their own person and if it's even possible. (At this point they mucked with the original Norse myths and broke the timeline, if they fail it won't be because of lack of trying.)

And don't like being treated as mere substitutes. While Hay Lin's copy Pao Chai (the only one who choose her own name) gets along with her original because Hay Lin actually treats her as her own person (even aknowledging she prefers being called Pao Chai), the others resent their originals and cause quite some trouble, at least until [[BigGood the Oracle]] intervenes while [[WhatTheHellHero calling the Guardians out on their actions]].

* Namorita of the ComicBook/NewWarriors is the clone of Namora, {{Sub-Mariner}}'s seldom-seen cousin, a DistaffCounterpart who failed to catch on. Namorita, "Nita" to her friends, is not just a character in her own right, but ''much'' more of a major character, appearing continually whereas Namora sometimes goes decades without having her existence acknowledged. Namora couldn't have children, so she had her science folks implant her with an embryo made from herself. The plot has always treated her like more of a daughter, though her clone status has been discovered and caused trouble at times. Namorita's death at the beginning of ''Comicbook/CivilWar'' meant more appearances for Namora, but DeathIsCheap and Namorita's back. Her "mom" is still around, though.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' occasionally explores this trope, like in "The Doctor's Daughter" (when the Doctor's OppositeSexClone is a true {{badass}} who eventually earns her "father's" respect) and "Journey's End" (when the Doctor's duplicate is a ''very'' different individual from his progenitor and is given a happy ending as Rose Tyler's LoveInterest). ** Explored thoroughly in ''The Almost People''/''The Rebel Flesh.'' The clones in this case are doppelgängers controlled by humans used to mine acid. During a solar storm, the doppelgängers gain consciousness. Since they retain all the memories of the humans, a conflict over whether or not both versions can exist ensues. Ultimately, only one version of each person survives, but some of the survivors are doppelgängers.

[[AmbiguousCloneEnding Which one did Missy kill, and which one survived? And of the current Osgoods, which one is from the original pair and which one is the dead Osgood's Zygon replacement?]] Only the Osgoods now, and in the name of peace between humans and Zygons, [[RiddleForTheAges they're not telling]]. As far as the show is concerned, it doesn't ''matter'' which is the original and which is the duplicate, because they're both people.

** ''SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' never treated clones as anything but real people, making [[spoiler: the death of TomatoInTheMirror Mary Jane]] very sad. Also, the cross-dimensional team of Spider-Men in the two-part finale included a Ben Reilly whose nemesis was his world's Peter Parker. They'd been through something like the Clone Saga, but neither we nor they ''ever'' learned who the original was. * The ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' had Madelyne Pryor, the clone of Jean Grey, who unfortunately became [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds evil]] due to psycho-emotional baggage involving this trope: she was created by EvilutionaryBiologist Mr. Sinister to replace Jean Grey in order to continue the propagation of the [[SuperPowerfulGenetics Summers-Grey]] mixed bloodline), and felt abandoned by her husband, Scott Summers, when Jean returned from the dead and he went to check if this was true. There's also Joseph, the RaiseHimRightThisTime clone of WellIntentionedExtremist Magneto, who was secretly created as part of an EvilPlan to TakeOverTheWorld by a former FanGirl of Magneto (and who was thought by everyone to be a de-aged and amnesiac Magneto[[note]]This perception was reinforced by Joseph having periodic flashes of the real Magneto's memories.[[/note]] until the original was revealed to be alive), who made a HeroicSacrifice SavingTheWorld the world from Magneto.

* Used as a theme on ''Manga/NarutoGaiden'', of all people, the villain Orochimaru explains this trope to Naruto, Sasuke and Sarada regarding Shin's clones, saying that unlike Naruto's shadow clones, each Shin clone is a human being with a mind and personality of its own. By the end of the story all of "Shin Jrs" are taken to be raised in an OrphanageOfLove led by Kabuto.
