* In the Operations Manual for West End Games' ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}: A Frightfully Cheerful Roleplaying Game'', published in 1986, contains an adventure titled "The Couch Potato," in which (assuming the players are using the characters from the movie) Dr. Peter Venkman meets a character named Dr. Hunter Panama. The manual notes right away that Doctor Panama is based on Dr. Hunter Thompson and suggests watching the movie "Where the Buffalo Roam," in which he is played by Bill Murray (who, in case you can't guess, also played Dr. Venkman), to give you ideas on how to play the character. The manual also remarks that two Bill Murray characters playing off each other appeals to their schizophrenia.

** There is also a not insignificant number of crossovers between ''DarkAngel'' and ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' (because of shared actor Michael Weatherly) where Tony DiNozzo becomes Logan Cale or vice versa. Science magic is usually invoked to explain the timeline and/or the character aging in reverse.

* [[Series/ICarly Carly]] / [[DrakeAndJosh Megan]]. A few people go so far as to add Summer Hathaway, from ''Film/SchoolOfRock'', into a MirandaCosgrove Doppelganger OT3.
* There is a ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''/''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' crossfic where Barney Stinson [[ScrewYourself seduces]] Dr. Horrible. There are also countless ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''/''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' crossovers where Barney secretly is Dr Horrible... The fact the gang where looking for Doppelgängers was a subplot for a season or so helps.

* An ad for ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'' features the game's versions of [[Film/PiratesoftheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]] and [[Film/TheLoneRanger Tonto]] meeting each other, the non-computer generated versions of both characters played by Creator/JohnnyDepp. This also was a subtle DearNegativeReader addressed to the people complaining that Tonto was just an "Indian Jack Sparrow" by showing them side by side and compare that there are not very alike (Sparrow is a LovableRogue and Tonto is ComicallySerious)

* There are a number of ''Series/{{Firefly}}''/''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' crossovers that usually feature Cameron being mistaken for River, often with Alliance soldiers getting curb stomped.

* There is a [[http://www.getphpbb.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=3676&mforum=sarmy fanfic]] on Sarmy, a [[Series/{{Heroes}} Sylar]] and ZacharyQuinto fansite, which crosses almost every role Zachary Quinto has ever played. [[Series/{{Heroes}} Sylar]], [[Film/StarTrek Spock]], Sasan, [[Series/TwentyFour Adam Kaufner]], and tons of guest appearances feature in the fic.

* One short fanfic had ''Series/{{NCIS}}''[='=]s medical examiner Dr. Donald Mallard, better known as Ducky, mistake ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles''[='=]medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles for his friend Kate (he was involved in a small accident). It can be assumed to be Kate Todd from the first two seasons because Kate just happens to be played by the same actress who plays one of the title characters from Rizzoli & Isles. [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6162024/1/A_Resemblance Any guesses?]] Not the only thing involving Ducky Mallard, played by David [=McCallum=], there are fics out there of him either being related to or ''being'' Illya Kuryakin from ''Series/TheManFromUncle'', [=McCallum=]'s breakout role. Which is kinda weird since an ActorAllusion line early in the seris made reference to Ducky's resemblance to Illya.
