* Recurring PsychoForHire Yuber from the ''{{Suikoden}}'' Series has this ability. In terms of sheer damage and utility it's one of the most powerful in the series and appears to be unique to him.

* Great Tiger, in both of his appearances in the ''PunchOut!!'' series, uses special attacks where he makes clones of himself to confuse Little Mac. Dodge or block at the wrong time, and the "real" clone will hit you pretty hard. On the flip side, [[OneHitKo if you can successfully hit him while he's using the move...]]

* One of the bosses in ''{{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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' episode "Let's Play Super-Powers", Stumpy tries to use this against [[TheAce Quack Quack]]. It didn't work, though, since Quack Quack managed to destroy the clones.
** Stumpy does it again in [[spoiler: Episode 63 when fighting Mr. Cat. Surprisingly enough, it works]].

Similar to DoppelgangerSpin, Doppelganger Attack involves making multiple copies of oneself, during combat. Unlike the former, however, the "copies" are actual physical copies, be they [[HardLight manifestations of energy]], [[MesACrowd split off]] from the original, or copies [[{{Golem}} made of stone, clay, or another material]]. As they are solid copies, there is no "which one is the real one" game to be played here: They're essentially ''all'' "real", and ''all'' equally dangerous. They can be used to attack, train, or defend the original. If the copies are unable to rejoin with the original after being created or summoned, they may have the CloningBlues.

** Maybe due to a glitch, if you ''destroy'' the mirror instead of looking into it, it spawns ''two'' copies of your character.

* Gharnef uses this ability when you face him for the last time in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon]]''. The real one is invulnerable to all attacks save the Starlight spell (which you may or may not have), while the clones can be damaged as normal. One way to tell which is the real one is to use the Earthsphere, which deals 13 damage to everything on the field... except for the real Gharnef.
