** One of the Wet Nurse's attacks is a nightmare reality in which every three seconds, a clone of the Wet Nurse appears and instantly launches an attack, only to vanish and do it again.
** Queen Yharnam can create duplicates that can use a lot of her attacks and will be constantly firing blood bullets at you. They can be destroyed easily, but can really make dealing with Yharnam very hard. The only thing that differentiates it from the real one is that the duplicates aren't pregnant.

** ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} was once attacked by a Jokerized Riot but was able to spot the original and knock him out almost immediately causing the clones to disappear.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'' had the Sandora Elite miniboss, who will create two clones of himself when his HP falls below half. The trick to finding the real one is paying attention to the attacks; the two clones will attack after being created, but since the real one made the clones on his turn, he won't attack.

Additionally, the Elite possesses an AOE fire attack that the clones are unable to use.

* One of the Zoalords from {{Anime/Guyver}} can hide himself in "imaginary space", where he cannot be harmed by anthing in "real space". From there, he can project up to three "shadows" in "real space": the copies look identical to the original, but are intangible, invulnerable and capable of firing homing ball of plasma, which ''are'' tangible and more than capable of harm. The drawbacks of this technique is that he can safely use it only for ten minutes at a time, and that [[spoiler: someone who possesses the same ability could also enter the same "imaginary space" and attack him directly]].

* One of the bosses in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' uses a Doppelganger attack as her gimmick. You have to hit the real one, or else any attempts to use magic will result in a nasty counterattack (her copies reflects magic). The solution: [[spoiler:fight her on a full moon - the fakes have no shadows. Or watch carefully when she taunts you afterwards.]]

* One of the defining characteristics of the Protopet in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando''. It can very quickly go from one, to seven, to forty two, and by the time you've killed half of them, the remaining half have probably already spawned the number back to it's upper limit.

** The Darklurker will create a copy of itself when its health reaches halfway, which acts independently and has all the same powers as the original. However, they share the same health bar, so when one dies, the other will die as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'' animated episode "The Tick Loves Santa" features a villainous thief in a Santa Claus costume who aquires the ability to create multiple clones of himself by absorbing electricity.

** The Crystal Sage will begin creating decoy copies of himself at half health. They die in one hit, but they are also capable of using sorceries just as powerful as the original.
** Pontiff Sulyvhan can create a phantom clone of himself in the second half of his boss fight. The clone has low health, but all the same attacks as the Pontiff himself, and he can create more if the one he's currently using is killed. However, the phantom mimics Sulyvhan's movements about a second behind, so its attacks are very predictable, and its presence really just means you have to dodge all of the Pontiff's attacks twice.

** While the Baltans of ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' are more of an example of the DoppelgangerSpin, another alien race, the Guts from ''Series/UltraSeven'', possess the ability to split themselves into multiple clones that possess the same abilities and physical power of the original.
