* In one issue of Adam Warren's ''DirtyPair'' a clone of Yuri is produced and is told she's in a training simulation where her objective is to kill the "simulated" Kei and Yuri. Thinking she's in a consequence free simulation she indulges her bad side and gets some tattoos, and causes even more collateral damage than usual, up to and including making a star go nova.

* The idea of a stereotypical, perfect-copy clone is used in a fantastically original manner in the web-novel ''JohnDiesAtTheEnd''. [[spoiler:In this case the blues aren't about being a clone so much as they are that he ''killed the original main character'' and took his place without knowing. His best friend and girlfriend forgive him, but now his biggest worry is VillainOverride.]]
* Cloning can be done fairly easily for people in the civilized regions of ''OrionsArm'', memory transfer optional. This isn't commonly done, since property laws get all iffy when cloning comes into the picture: most of the time, the copies can own property but have no property to begin with. Other times, if the clone is given the original's memories, property can be split down the middle if a disagreement arises. It varies A LOT depending on region. Nonetheless, one person cloned himself hundreds of times and is in the process of making a documentary on the myriad ways his copies have gone. On the net or in virches (virtual environments), copying is done very frequently. These are not usually included in population counts for this reason. The notes on population suggests that if you count virtual clones, 90% of the population would consist of ''five people''.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'', all [=PCs=] are clones, and on death are replaced with duplicate clones with the character's memories and personality. They have much reason to get the blues, as repeated cloning can lead to personality quirks and full-blown psychoses, not to mention CloneDegeneration. Oh, and being a mutant is treason -- this leads to the situation of mutants executed by other clones for treason when discovered, but their replacement clone instantly arriving can't be executed again until it's proven to also be a mutant. Due to inherent problems with the cloning system, they may come back with a ''different'' mutation! Getting the Cloning Blues is Treason. (Unless you're Level Blue or higher.)

* So far, the process of cloning animals is imperfect and introduces a wide number of of mutations due to how genetic material is inserted into the egg. Because of this, the majority of clones are known to have health issues and live generally shorter lives.

As a result, many clones brood about how they're [[WhatMeasureIsANonhuman not "real,"]] just [[WhatHaveIBecome hollow imitations of the original]]. The clones tend to deal with this rather badly. Some make desperate attempts to act different. Others go mad and try to murder the original to take their place. (Emphasis on "try" -- hardly any succeed.) If the clone is a main character, they will spend the whole show angsting about how they're the TomatoInTheMirror. Occasionally they will have powers just like the ArtificialHuman. [[CursedWithAwesome This often just ups their feelings of alienation, though]]. But FridgeLogic kicks in and makes this {{Wangst}} when you realize that clones occur in RealLife all the time; they're called identical twins, and they generally don't have existential crises over it.
