** There's a reason for the villain's InsistentTerminology. The twinning process appears to distill some of the original's essence into each double -- and neither is the original. People the villain had done it over and over again, producing a horde of duplicates, had been reduced to (a horde of) savages.

** O'Neill's 16 year-old clone (who, disturbingly, does have his memories) is given the right to live his own life (paid for by the US Air Force no less). The (commented-on) difference between them as individuals comes at the end of the episode, when Young O'Neill chooses to go "back" to high school and do better this time, which Colonel O'Neill doesn't see the appeal of. Before that, they are exactly alike (which makes sense, as he (and the audience) was initially led to believe he was the colonel de-aged).

** Later on, it's discovered that [[spoiler:there is a male line from Project Castor (the women are from Project Leda), raised by the military in barracks. While the Castors also develop different personalities, it's not nearly as evident as with the Ledas, especially since they get a lot less screen time]].
** On the other hand, several people do consider clones to be either abominations (religious nuts) or obsolete (unethical scientists).

* The ''Film/StarWars'' prequels establish Boba Fett (yes, [[MemeticBadass THAT]] Boba Fett) as one of many clones of his predecessor, the great BountyHunter Jango Fett (although Boba is the only one who's not an enhanced SuperSoldier). Jango asked for Boba to be created as part of his price for the Kamino project, and treats him like a beloved son, not as an unnatural duplicate -- and his artificial origins in no way detract from his badassery.
** Averted with the other clones, at least in the films. The only Jedi who treats them as anything other than disposable soldiers is... Anakin Skywalker, and he gets ''chastised'' for it by Obi-Wan.

See, his predecessor Jango Fett (although Boba is provided the only one who's not an genetic template for the enhanced SuperSoldier). Jango asked for Boba to be created [[SuperSoldier Clone Troopers]], and as part of the deal, he requested an unmodified clone to raise on his price for the Kamino project, and own. Jango treats him Boba like a beloved son, not as an unnatural duplicate -- duplicate, and his Boba's artificial origins in no way detract from his badassery.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' where the Murakumo Units are artificial robot clones of Saya (making this trope double over with AndroidsArePeopleToo). On one hand, both Lambda-11 and Nu-13 have MachineMonotone voices and are clearly primarily driven by the directive of their programming. On the other hand, Noel Vermillion[=/=]Mu-12 speaks with a perfectly human voice and is driven almost entirely by her emotions, and when Nu-13 comes close to [[AntiHero Ragna]], she, too, switches to a human voice. [[LaughingMad A really]], ''[[{{Yandere}} really]]'' [[IncestSubtext disturbing one]], sure, but a human voice none the less... On the recieving end, both Ragna and Jin are very clearly upset over the fact that their sister has become a clone template, but they still treat Noel as a separate individual. Ragna, in particular, who has set out on a mission to destroy the Murakumo Units, makes clear that though he feels he ''has'' to fight and destroy Nu-13 in the first game, it's not something he ''wants'' to do. While Makoto was friendly to Noel ([[JerkassFacade though not at first]]) without knowing she's a Prime Field Device, all the truth of the affair does is shock her momentarily; learning Noel's true nature amidst a graveyard of her "predecessors" does nothing to how she sees the girl. Noel herself takes this position when dealing with Lambda, as she's starting to develop a personality and Noel treats her like a little sister.

* Artificial humans in ''ComicBook/{{Copperhead}}'' are genetically programmed to seek out and win fights, but have agency to determine how they do it. Many are soldiers, some are employed as guards or enforcers. Ishmael specifically goes out of his way to avoid people and larger conflicts but will step into any unjust scenario to protect the weak.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' has many clones, including the protagonist himself. Though all are genetically identical, their personalities and history vary wildly. Where Dredd himself became a celebrated Judge, his clone-brother Rico turned to criminal ways and was ultimately killed for it. Another clone, Dolman, decided to quit the Academy to join the Space Corps instead.
