** Also, Wodan resolves his CloningBlues at the conclusion of the Earth Cradle arc, and not only is it {{Badass}}, it's pretty damn touching. Even Sanger, the original, wept ManlyTears at Wodan's death as a true warrior fighting for his cause.

** It gets better: [[spoiler: Even Caulder/Stolos is a clone of the original, and it seems highly likely that the side-effects of cloning are partly responsible for his insanity]].

** The Riku replica in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' lives a sad existence, constantly trying to live up to or replace "the real thing". There's a funny omake at the end of the manga that jokes about just how sad it is.

** Roxas, Sora's [[LiteralSplitPersonality Nobody]], exhibits these traits throughout his life.



** Roxas, a nobody of Sora exhibits this traits throughout his life.



** The series loves clones so much that there have been at least 5 or so clones of Kyo Kusanagi running around at one point (Kyo Kusanagi's 1 & 2, K', Krizalid, K9999, and Kusanagi). There was also the OppositeSexClone Kula, and one of the bosses, Zero, [[spoiler:had a clone who was the boss in the game preceding him]]. The series is inconsistent about the use of the term, however, as K' is actually a normal human modified to have Kyo's powers and there is argument over whether Kula is something similar.
** Additionally, whereas Kusanagi was originally implied in concept artwork to be yet another Kyo clone created by NESTS, ''2003'' retconned his origins to being an illusionary construct of a BrainwashedAndCrazy [[BarrierMaiden Chizuru Kagura's]] [[MagicMirror Yata Mirror]].
** ''[[DreamMatchGame 2002]]: [[UpdatedRerelease Unlimited Match]]'' adds two more clones: Nameless (K9999's replacement, a human who had the DNA of both Kyo and K' genetically inserted into his body and is known as the 9999th K' clone) and Isolde (Nameless' [[spoiler:"dead" [[note]] but reanimated to some degree in the form of his PowerLimiter glove [[/note]]]] love interest and a member of the Anti-K' Project that spawned Kula).
*** This is very much mocked with [[{{MUGEN}} the various clones of Kula]], with [[EvilKnockoff Sula Crystal]] deemed the most focused of the bunch. Heck, [[Manga/ElfenLied the only "Kula Clone" who isn't a clone is Lucy]]

similar due to FlipFlopOfGod. [[note]]The English version of ''2001'' has Kula remark that she was "grown from a petri dish" during the NESTS Team's story, which would make her a "built from the ground up" clone like K9999. Kula's bio in ''Maximum Impact 2'', however, hints that she was a regular girl who was genetically modified by NESTS, just like K'.[[/note]]

** More appear in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''; a factory of backup bodies in the event of M. Bison's death. At least two characters are revealed [[spoiler:(Rose and Seth)]] to be such clones.
* In ''Franchise/MortalKombat'', Mileena has no problem with being a clone of Kitana. Still, she utterly despises her "sister" and her fondest wish is Kitana's death, possibly out of a demented belief that she's more worthy of Kitana's existence that Kitana herself. (Many sources have claimed she is the closest thing Shao-Kahn has to an actual daughter, and she often says so herself in a few of them, so in her deranged way of thinking, ''Kitana'' is the fake who has to be eliminated.)
** Played with in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', where she had made a life of her own. However, she has issues with her own copies. [[spoiler: That gets fixed as now all Mileena clones share a HiveMind in her ending]]

* ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' features an angry, bitter clone who became a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds. He returns in a TV special, though he's mellowed down.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Series/{{Quark}}''. The spaceship has two BridgeBunnies called Betty. One of them is a clone [[TwinThreesomeFantasy identical in every way]], including the belief that she's the original Betty, so the other must be the clone. This causes great confusion for Captain Quark, who'd love to romance Betty if only he could work out which one she is.

* The premise of ''Manga/AfterschoolCharisma'' is a lot like ''CloneHigh'' if that was done seriously; that is, a school in the near future is populated by teenage clones of historical figures as a research/social experiment. And yes, [[YouClonedHitler they cloned Hitler]] (Who, surprisingly enough, is actually one of the most kind-hearted clones; go figure). There is enormous pressure on the clones to live up to their originals. Marie Curie, who wants to study music, [[ReleasedToElsewhere transfers out]], while Mozart, who [[FantasticRacism embraces his fate and looks down on non-clones]] can't handle the pressure and [[spoiler:[[DrivenToSuicide attempts suicide]]]].

** Played for laughs in the trailer for the ''Reborn'' DLC for ''F.E.A.R. 2''. "I may be a clone now, but I sure ain't your brother! Yeeaaaaaaahhhhhhh!".
* ''Neo {{VideoGame/Contra}}'' has its moment when [[spoiler:Bill Rizer]] finds out that he was really just part of an experiment to replicate a legendary hero...''Sounds [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid familiar]]''?

At the end of the game, it's revealed that [[spoiler:the client paying her]] is [[spoiler:another clone]]. It's slightly subverted in that [[spoiler:the original person is unknown]] and that while Vanessa is [[spoiler:somewhat disturbed]] the [[spoiler:client knew about it from the beginning and doesn't mind]].

* In ''Xenocide'', one of the sequels to ''EndersGame'', Ender enters a dimension that allows you to create anything that you can hold perfectly in your mind. Ender unintentionally creates copies of his siblings. The copies eventually deduce that they aren't clones of the original siblings per se, but manifestations from Ender's mind: the personification of Ender's innocence and kindness in his sister, and of his ambition and ruthlessness in his brother. This causes both copies to angst endlessly until [[spoiler:they are re-integrated by Ender's death and the copy-sister's loss of her body]].
