* While not "characters" in the traditional sense, Bomb Kirby and Mirror Kirby were originally PaletteSwaps of Sword Kirby and Beam Kirby, respectively. Newer installments of the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series have given Bomb Kirby and Mirror Kirby more distinct designs to make it easier to tell them apart.

* 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.
** His replacement (and previous solo collaborator), Josh Klinghoffer, seems to be going in the opposite direction - when he started, he was trying to emulate John's melodic style, but over time, he has shown such a knowledge of RHCP's funk back catalogue that fans hope he will steer them back into that direction.

* ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' and Mario started on the same game but the latter got his own game franchise known for it's speed and wide open levels while the former remained a slow moving puzzle game. DK got a second lease on life when ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' was released on SNES and he finally got his own fast paced game complete with district gameplay and style.

* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl Teatrino'' does this to Angelica and Claes in terms of design. In the manga and original anime they both have long, blueish black hair and blue eyes. ''Teatrino'' [[AdaptationDyeJob changed]] Angelica's design so that she has brown hair and green eyes.

* 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.

** 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.
