* Inverted in ''Film/TheParentTrap''. Both versions of the girls start out easily identifiable by clothing, hairstyle, hobbies and accents. While pulling off the TwinSwitch to fool their parents, they modify their appearances so they look identical. They then teach each other about their relevant hobbies and behaviours, all so they can easily impersonate each other. As a result, it's very hard to tell who's who in the final part of the film.



* For most of the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, Draco's friends Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle are his interchangeable minions but in the last book, Crabbe turns out to be more ruthless than Draco when [[spoiler: he defies him and actively try to kill Harry]].

** Fred and George are an identical pair of trouble makers (and are twins to boot). In the final book, George gets an ear blown off by dark magic, making it easy to tell them apart.
** Parvati and Lavender are two girls who spend their time together and don't have any defined personality traits to distinguish them. But in the sixth book, Lavender becomes Ron's clingy, dramatic girlfriend. Parvati meanwhile shows embarrassment at her best friend's SickeninglySweethearts behaviour.


Added DiffLines:

* The Wrestling/BellaTwins's initial act was as a pair of identical sisters who looked, wrestled and acted the same (so they could pull off a TwinSwitch). As of 2013, Nikki had gotten breast implants and started powerlifting to give herself AmazonianBeauty in contrast to Brie's waifier frame. ''Series/TotalDivas'' established Brie as a level-headed, hard-drinking GranolaGirl, and Nikki as a passionate lover of high fashion and expensive gifts. Ring-wise, Nikki came to wrestle a more power-based offence and Brie opted for more aerial moves.

** The sixth expansion to the game, ''Legions'', plans on overhauling many of the class specializations so they stand out more. One of the best examples is the Rogue class specializations ("specs" for short). Before, all three specs were more-or-less the same (Subtlety relied on Stealth a bit more than the other two, Assassination used poisons sometimes, Combat was some sort of weird jack-of-all-trades). In ''Legions'', Subtlety was revamped to focus even more on Stealth, even [[CastingAShadow using the shadows themselves]] to attack the enemy. Assassination focused on heavy bleeding and poisoning to drain the life out of their targets. Combat was renamed "Outlaw" and eschewed Stealth almost entirely (Ambush is pretty much their only Stealth-attack), focusing more on [[CombatPragmatist cheap shots]] and [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty dirty tricks]], including bringing a gun to a knife fight and literally bribing an enemy with (fool's) gold so he fights as an ally for a short time.

*** Hunters are also being heavily differentiated in ''Legions''. Beast Mastery is still classic Hunter, combining ranged attacks with your loyal attack animal, but Survival Hunters get rid of most of the ranged attacks, preferring to grab a melee weapon and fight right next to his/her pet. Marksmanship Hunters can skip having a pet entirely, and emphasize ranged attacks, focusing on high-damage sniping.

** Tuned up even further in ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''. Not only were their personalities and drive more polarized than ever, but Chip picked up a [[IndianaJones leather jacket and fedora]] to represent his bravery and intelligence, whereas Dale picked up a [[Series/MagnumPI Hawaiian shirt]] to represent his laid back attitude and sloth.

* Humans. In their first years of life, males and females are nigh indistinguishable one from another. As they grow older, biological gender differences surface.

* When ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' first came out, an art book revealed that the developers had toyed around with the concept of a female version of Link before rejecting it. When making the ''Legends'' UpdatedRerelease, they brushed off the concept and made a new CanonForeigner character called Linkle. Instead of just being Link only female, like the original concept art portrayed, Linkle's final design bears some similarities to Link (green clothes, blond hair, pointy ears) but also some sharp contrasts: Link is a legendary hero while Linkle only ''thinks'' she's one, Linkle is a GenkiGirl in contrast to how (adult) Link tends to be TheStoic, and Link is primarily a swordsman but Linkle is TheGunslinger with dual crossbows.

* Giggles and Petunia from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''. They were originally just girly girls with no difference in personality. Giggles' personality stayed basically the same, although with her getting more generally associated with romance (being the girl most commonly paired up with male characters and having a Valentine's Day-themed Smoochie) and having a brief stint as an enviromentalist in one episode. Petunia, however, gained a more concrete character trait in the TV series in the form of a ''[[SanitySlippage serious]]'' NeatFreak streak.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', [[TheHero Nanoha]] and [[TheLancer Fate]] initially functioned very similarly in combat, save that Fate had more of a preference for Melee combat due to Bardiche's [[SinisterScythe Scythe Form]]. Starting in ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs A's]]'' Fate began to become more of a FragileSpeedster while Nanoha continued becoming more and more of a MightyGlacier. This trend continued in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS''.
