* The ''Franchise/{{Doom}}'' series has the Hell Knight, introduced in ''Doom II'' as a less durable palette-swapped [[EliteMook Baron Of Hell]] that fought exactly the same by throwing green fireballs. In ''VideoGame/{{Doom 3}}'' they got a different appearance and served the same role as the Baron Of Hell, being a more durable enemy that still threw green fire. Come [[VideoGame/{{Doom2016}} the 2016 game]], the Hell Knight is now a CloseRangeCombatant with similar looks to its ''Doom 3'' incarnation and lacks a fireball attack, while the Baron of Hell fights with both close and long range green attacks while still retaining [[BigRedDevil its looks from the first game]].

** Luigi, the former {{Trope Namer|s}} and current [[Pantheon/{{Gaming}} God of the Trope]], was originally a PaletteSwap of his brother Mario, and was identical to him in every way. He has since been given his own high-jumping, low-traction style of gameplay, as well as a taller and more slender character design. His personality has drifted off as well; Mario is still portrayed as simply heroic and courageous, but Luigi has developed a second-banana complex, has become somewhat cowardly (especially regarding ghosts), and harbors dark secrets and HiddenDepths. [[EnsembleDarkhorse Some fans prefer Luigi]] to the squeaky-clean Mario for this reason. Luigi's designs sort of flip-flopped during the 8 and 16 bit era: He was identical to his brother until the US version of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' (a re-skin of the [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] ''VideoGame/DokiDokiPanic'') where he was first seen with his taller look and high-jump ability. Then in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' he was back to being just Mario in green[[note]]The skinny version does appear in the the "The End" screen in the original Super NES version. As a result, this was the game that made it officially "canon" (however loosely defined it may be in the [[Franchise/{{Mario}} series]]).[[/note]].

* ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' has a fair few characters that have evolved over the years, the most notable being [[FightingIrish Aran Ryan]]. In the SNES game, he was a bland palette swap of Pizza Pasta who fought by the rules. In the Wii game, he's a ''[[AxCrazy complete lunatic]]'' who threatens Mac, the referee and the audience and breaks just about every rule of boxing, from using his elbows to loading his gloves with horseshoes to tying a rope to one of said horseshoe gloves and ''using it as a goddamn flail.''

* Ninten and Ness from ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}'' look near identical. To distinguish Ninten from his more popular {{expy}} Ness, fans redesign Ninten in fan art. Fans always draw Ninten wearing a handkerchief around his neck (something taken from the live action commercial for ''VideoGame/EarthboundBeginnings''). Some differentiate him even more from Ness by changing the colors of his shirt (usually to red, white, and blue instead of its canon yellow and blue).

* In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' Ariel's sisters had more-or-less the same face. Future adaptations give them more varying designs and more individualized personalities.
* This is even clearer in ''{{Disney/Cinderella}}'' and its sequels. In the original, Drizella and Anastasia are nearly indistinguishable, in terms of personality, except that Drizella tends to take the lead. The sequels develop this, making Drizella truly mean-spirited, but Anastasia a doormat who's been overpowered by her mother and sister all her life, and who eventually undergoes a HeelFaceTurn and full-on redemption.

Although they are both use the [[{{Shotoclone}} same fighting style]], Ryu is now a [[KamehameHadoken Hadoken]] specialist and usually fights defensively, while Ken is more aggressive and prefers the {{Shoryuken}}.
** The divergence got a lot bigger in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV''. While Ryu is relatively close to how he was in previous games, Ken went through some radical changes, utilizing a much more aggressive moveset and [[SuperMode V-Trigger]] compared to Ryu. He also no longer wears his trademark gi, which only drives the point further. Similarly, Nash plays nothing like he did in the Alpha series, thus diverging himself from a Guile clone.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Bart and Lisa Simpson started out as a pair of interchangeable brats. Both were shameless pranksters and not too bright, their main function being to drive their parents up the wall. This worked well for the original three-minute Ullman shorts, which didn't have much time for characterization. The first few episodes of the regular series feature this portrayal as well, with Lisa causing as much trouble as Bart. The writers decided having two identical characters wasn't very interesting in a half-hour format, so the episode "Moaning Lisa" was produced, which re-creates Lisa as artistic, sensitive, and very intelligent, but insecure and [[SoapboxSadie obnoxiously self-righteous]]. Basically the total opposite of her brother. This version of the character has remained ever since.
** Note there were some ''slight'' differences in the original shorts, where Lisa was a delinquent, but still somewhat wilier and reserved than Bart and usually more a GreekChorus to his antics (and eventual comeuppance).

** Rich and Larry were originally two guys of jerkish speech whose only distinguishing traits were that one was at and the other was taller. Once they got some real focus, Larry was shown as less homophobic and more willing to listen when people tell him he's wrong, which results in him promising to try to act better in the future at the end of the arc. Rich, meanwhile, was shown to be something of a conspiracy theorist.

* JohnFrusciante of the RedHotChiliPeppers was initially a clone of the man he was replacing, Hillel Slovak. It's especially evident in live performances from the Mother's Milk period, where he nails the old funk-punk songs perfectly (he had been an RHCP fan since the first album and learnt all their songs). However, he had melodic traits which developed over time. Rick Rubin encouraged the band to utilise them, paying off when Frusciante wrote the ballad "Under The Bridge", the band's biggest hit ever. During a period of time away from the band, in which he was addicted to heroin and cocaine, he created some extremely odd, dark and trippy solo music, which was mostly acoustic and not performed with a band. Some of this style, though raw, laid the blueprint for RHCP's own musical evolution into an alternative rock band, notably the ballad "Femininity". When Frusciante returned to the band, he fed some of this dark and melodic playing style into the album Californication, notably in such tracks as "Otherside". Frusciante's next album "To Record Only Water For Ten Days" featured synth textures and drum machine, and an entirely melodic collection of songs. It went over well with the band and producer Rick Rubin, and the style of next album By The Way evolved directly from "To Record Only Water"'s atmospheric qualities, and the full band style of By THe Way fed back into John's solo album "Shadows Collide With People". Frusciante, however, kept experimenting over the years, surprising fans with his Letur-Lefr EP and subsequent releases, which were electronic based and didn't feature as much guitar or vocals, to the point where his current style is considerably distinct to the style he created with RHCP that is still their trademark. Unsurprisingly, he has no interest in returning to the band, something which a lot of fans fail to accept.

Added DiffLines:

* Wrestling/BulletClub and The Kingdom were coincidentally similar in that the were both {{heel}} power stables who frequently did homages to older acts(Wrestling/{{n|ewWorldorder}}Wo and Wrestling/{{D|generationX}}X for the former, Wrestling/CMPunk and [[Wrestling/MattHardy Hardy]] [[Wrestling/JeffHardy Boyz]]) for the latter. However, before they Club made it to Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}OH, they lost Wrestling/PrinceDevitt and replaced him Wrestling/AJStyles, a wrestler the fans had all but given up on seeing in ROH again. After his successful [[Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling IWGP]] Heavyweight Title Defense at ''War Of The Worlds'', Styles would be attacked without provocation by Kingdom leader Adam Cole, who incidentally was the one member most unlike anyone in Bullet Club at the time, and be saved by Wrestling/HiroshiTanahashi and Wrestling/JushinThunderLiger, giving Styles strong association with established baby {{face}}s and allowing the rest of the Club to do collectively HeelFaceTurn in ROH as they went on to support Styles as he sought retribution against Cole and inevitably ran into the rest of The Kingdom.
