* "WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbStarWars" is presented as a LowerDeckEpisode for ''Film/StarWarsANewHope'' rather than a sequel, but is clearly going for this trope: while Luke in the movie complains about how much he wants to get off of boring Tattooine, Phineas and Ferb (presented as his neighbors) have a whole SettingIntroductionSong [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b77jvbvSNC4 about how much they love it]] ("I may be wearing my heart on my sleeve/But I can't understand why anyone would want to leave!")

** Picard of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' compared to Kirk of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. Kirk is more adventurous and action prone, BoldlyComing and more likely to dive and be at the fore front of any situation. Picard, on the other hand, is more diplomatic, older, more reserved and philosophical. He's also more prone to delegate to his subordinate, almost never going on away missions - unlike Kirk.[[note]]Though by Picard's time rules had changed and captains weren't supposed to go on away missions anyway.[[/note]] Also unlike Kirk, Picard does not generally mingle in his free time with his bridge crew. That's why the final scene of the series, where he finally joins their weekly poker game, feels so meaningful. Kirk, however would regularly play chess with Spock or spend time with Bones, going on shore leave with Scotty. Curiously, they also have inverted backstories; Kirk was studious and straight-laced when in the academy, though once he graduated he cut loose and became a casual and easygoing, playing fast and loose with the rules. Picard is a FormerTeenageRebel who was an infamous skirt-chaser until a near-fatal injury got him to shape up and become the fastidious and intellectual GentlemanAdventurer we all know and love.

** Mordecai and [=Zer0=] both fill the sniper role, but in very different ways. [=Zer0=] is stoic, mysterious, soft-spoken, and AmbiguouslyHuman. Mordecai's loud, brash, alcoholic, and definitely human.
** Brick and Salvador are both violence-loving berserkers who manage to come off as the TokenEvilTeammate even for Pandora. Brick turns out to be a BruiserWithASoftCenter who occasionally comes across as the OnlySaneMan. Salvador is completely AxCrazy and doesn't really have an off switch. Even their physiques and specialties are different: Brick is massive and relies on his fists to pummel foes, while Salvador is TheNapoleon and a GunNut.

* ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'': Neptune is a cheerful, childish, ditzy, lazy, but confident girl who loves to break the serious mood and is always positive. She balances her flawed personality with her [[SuperMode Goddess form]] Purple Heart, a true LadyOfWar and OnlySaneWoman among the four goddesses. Neptune's younger sister however is dutiful, calm, polite, but lacks self-confidence, and her Goddess form Purple Sister is barely different from her human form. Since Nepgear is too plain and not as amusing as her older sister, Neptune becomes the protagonist of the next two main games again.

Neptune is a cheerful, childish, ditzy, lazy, but confident girl who loves to break the serious mood and is always positive. She balances her flawed personality with her [[SuperMode Goddess form]] Purple Heart, a true LadyOfWar and OnlySaneWoman among the four goddesses. Neptune's younger sister however is dutiful, calm, polite, but lacks self-confidence, and her Goddess form Purple Sister is barely different from her human form. Since Nepgear is too plain and not as amusing as her older sister, Neptune becomes the protagonist of the next two main games again.again.
** In terms of goddesses from another dimension, there are Plutia from ''[[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory Victory]]'' and Uzume Tennouboshi from ''[[VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII Victory II]]''. Both are newcomers from their respective installments, but they differ greatly in terms of personality and importance in story. Plutia is very calm, to the point where she seems to be perpetually tired. She is kind but ditzy, with a minor sadistic tendency and tends to ignore her duties and responsibilities as Goddess, as she spends most of her time either sleeping, making dolls or playing around with Neptune. Occasionally, she [[CrossesTheLineTwice goes overboard]] when showcasing her somewhat [[ComedicSociopathy twisted sense of humor]]. Her Goddess form Iris Heart is a HeroicComedicSociopath and {{Dominatrix}} who indiscriminately and mercilessly frightens anyone else, friend or foe alike. She doesn't care how long her victim(s) suffer from her "lecture", as long as she gets her kicks. Uzume, on the other hand, is mannish but fiercely loyal and honest to her friends, and she rarely speaks ill of them, and unlike the other Planeptune goddesses, she is the most responsible. As Orange Heart, she becomes childlike and bubbly, although she is no less serious about doing her job, particularly when it comes to protecting her friends and her dimension.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity'' features Arno. While the son of an assassin, he was partially raised by the templars, only coming back to the assassins later in life. He also places more value on relationships than ideology, demonstrated by his willingness to join his ChildhoodFriend Elise (a templar) on her quest for vengeance, while also dancing around the assassin's council and different factions for the sake of those he cares for most.
** And this is in turn contrasted in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' with the twin Jacob and Evie. Both of them are career assassins, with commitment to the cause first, though they differ over methodology. Jacob is also HotBlodded and tends to leap first at the templars before wondering about consequences. Evie meanwhile is methodical allmost to a fault, stoic, and more the stoic than most of the previous 3 protagonists.

* Compare the 2013 ROH Top Prospect Matt Taven, a wannabe {{pretty boy}}, CasanovaWannabe and DirtyCoward with the 2014 Top Prospect Hanson, a somewhat stocky, hotheaded, NoNonsenseNemesis. Taven relied on trickery and connections on his path to success, Hanson took runner up Raymon Rowe with him and pummeled his way to the top of the tag team division, rolling over Taven in the process. The 2015 ROH Top Prospect Donovan Dijak, a towering man who wrestles like a scaled up super junior with the 2016 Top Prospect Lio Rush, a man too small to technically qualify as a junior heavyweight yet strives to wrestle like one anyway. Dijak would turn down his promised television spot for a failed run in the tag team division while Rush would be denied his and instead go straight after the world champion after which more unexpected circumstances would force him and Dijak to switch places.[[/folder]]

* Every protagonist to follow Battler in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' is a contrast to him, Ange most of all. She's a female {{Kuudere}} to his HotBlooded male, with completely opposite biases.
