** And ''then'' you have the twofold question of the original Osgood and her Zygon duplicate. [[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.

* ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'': More like "clones are animals, too,", but Coney's clone Dolly[=/=] is very much her own sheep, even more so after being turned into a baby - for one thing, she actually ''likes'' her mother's controlling tendencies.

** Same applies to every other clone in the comic, including one case of a man cloned 950 million times, which basically turned him into his own ethnic group.

* Most of the clones in the ''Film/StarWars'' prequels are depicted as {{expendable|Clone}}...except the legendary BountyHunter Boba Fett. See, his predecessor Jango Fett provided the genetic template for the enhanced [[SuperSoldier Clone Troopers]], and as part of the deal, he requested an unmodified clone to [[TrulySingleParent raise on his own]]. Jango treats Boba like a beloved son, not as an unnatural duplicate, and Boba's artificial origins in no way detract from his {{badass}}ery.

* This is a major plot point in the Franchise/MetalGear series, especially in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4. At the very end [[spoiler:Big Boss himself]] tells Snake that he respects him as a soldier, and is sure that Snake would've made very different decisions if placed in the same situations as him. This neatly summarizes the whole Aesop of the series: Your genes don't determine who you are. Your actions do.
