* In the Operations Manual for West End Games' ''Franchise/{{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.

** This is even played with in [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW the official IDW comic]]. Specifically, in the second issue of the ''Friends Forever'' series, Discord creates a series of artificial reality scenarios to help the CMC get their cutie marks. One such scenario involves all of them as the command crew on the bridge of a starship greatly resembling the Enterprise, their costumes lifted directly from the cast of TNG. Discord even comments that "this one seems familiar."

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/VeronicaMars'' share enough actors to make an arsenal of this, albeit most of them in minor roles in the latter. And that's without getting to the fact that Veronica dated [[Film/{{X-Men}} Iceman]]'s identical twin and Mac dated [[Series/{{Smallville}} The Flash]]. It's superhero central, guys.
* Done in reverse, with the official ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}''/''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' crossover which featured Captain Picard meeting Professor Xavier, but came out before the first Film/{{X-Men}} movie. Made even funnier by a character remarking that both share a likeness.

* A fanfic that crossed over ''Series/{{JAG}}'' with ''ThePretender'' had Lt. Cmdr. Rabb mistake Miss Parker for his former partner Lt. Caitlin Pike. Both Miss Parker and Lt. Pike were played by Andrea Parker.

** 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)
