** Tereus might be unusual because he is the single prototype unit of his genetic template and personally knows his "original". He also seems to have at least some attraction to Briareos girlfriend that carried over from the cloning, but knows that he can't have her, since he is only the copy. At the same time Briareos gets angsty because he's afraid that Tereus might replace him in both his positions at work and as Deunans boyfriend, as Tereus has a fully biological body and he is a [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul giant mechanical hulk]].

* This is part of a side plot for Fenix in Legacy of the Void in VideoGame/StarCraft2. At first, he believes he ''is'' Fenix from the original Starcraft games, which both Artanis and the player know is false as Fenix died. As time goes on, Fenix begins to realize this fact, and the fact that he is not a dragoon (a robotic suit used for heavily injured Protoss that still allows for combat), and is actually a mechanical reproduction that had the memories of Fenix downloaded into the body. Artanis assures him that he deserves the title of Fenix, that he is indeed a noble warrior with the heart of the original, however Fenix decides to choose his own path, and comes out of this depression with a new outlook and name: Talandar. The epilogue states that Talandar became a leader to the other purifiers who, like him, are just robotic duplicates downloaded with the memories and personality of other deceased Protoss warriors.
** This is referenced in Co-op mode. There is a wholly useless 11 mineral and vespene upgrade that researches in just a few seconds. it changes Fenix's onscreen name to Talandar for the remainder of the match.

** ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' also features [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Copy-X]], who was built as an ElCidPloy. However, it isn't really him - the real X sacrificed himself to [[SealedEvilInACan seal up a dangerous enemy]] much earlier - so the clone, with an incomplete version of X's programming, ends up virtually turning evil.

That said, it's ''X'' who does most of the angsting (over what the copy is doing in his name); Copy-X is utterly convinced that as a "perfect" copy of X, he's doing exactly what X would do and thus cannot be wrong.

Though RealLife [[ArtificialHuman artificial clones]] have to start at conception and go through childhood all over again, and can even have phenotypes that vary from their parent, SpeculativeFiction clones are like perfect meta-xerox copies of the cloned person. They are ''exactly'' like the target at the moment of cloning, (possibly excused by [[YoungerThanTheyLook age acceleration]]) with all their forebearers' [[GeneticMemory memories]] [[SoulFragment and skills]], although their personalities can develop from there.

** Seedless grapes and domestic bananas are in fact no longer able to reproduce sexually, having adapted to being cloned by humans instead. Going back to the original point that spawned all this talk of cloned plants, one strain of banana was made completely extinct in in the Americas about a century ago due to a parasite that evolved to only feed on that strain. The most common variety of banana nowadays is at risk of the same fate. There are no reports of wild bananas having this trouble.

* ''To Be'', a Canadian cartoon short by John Weldon, spotlighted on the extinct Cartoon Network show ''[[CanadaEh O Canada]]'' investigated the philosophical issue of [[{{Teleportation}} teleporters]] by way of cloning technology. In it, a scientist shows off to a crowd a teleporter that functions by making an exact copy of someone elsewhere then destroying the original. A woman in the crowd, horrified by this, suggests to the scientist that he test the moral ramifications of the process by stepping through himself, and delaying the destruction of the original by five minutes. Thus, the scientist has an exact clone. They find this wonderful and exciting, until the woman asks which is the original inventor. Both want to confirm that they are in fact the "real" scientist... until the woman reminds them (after one has won) that the original ''[[OhCrap must be destroyed]]'', whereupon each claims to be the copy. They have a chess match to determine which the original is - but unfortunately, the ''victor'' is declared to be the original, and is subsequently destroyed. After the issue is resolved and one scientist is zapped into nothingness, [[HeelRealization the scientist changes his mind about the usefulness of the teleporter]]. The woman feels guilty for what she'd done, basically killing someone to prove her point, and atones for this by stepping through the machine herself, claiming that her new copied self is free of guilt for what her original had done.

* In ''Anime/SaberMarionetteR'', Star-Face discovering that he, along with every king before him, is a clone of the original King of Romana, and that his younger brother Junior is ''not'' a clone, but rather the actual son of the previous king and born from a human mother, is enough to send him on a VillainousBreakdown and [[spoiler:causes him to be DrivenToSuicide.]]
