** The Blight Ganons in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' are gruesome {{Mechanical Abomination}}s designed with nearly identical abilities to the [[EliteFour Champions]] they were sent to kill so that Calamity Ganon could [[DemonicPossession take over]] the [[HumongousMecha Divine Beasts]] they piloted. Speaking of which, [[spoiler:the form Calamity Ganon takes when Link finally faces him in Hyrule Castle is a giant cybernetic body with the abilities of all four Blight Ganons, while the form he takes when defeated in this phase is a giant boar called Dark Beast Ganon, making him an Evil Knockoff of the Divine Beasts]].

** Note that, in a departure from most villains, this did not stop them from immediately correcting their mistake with a second evil knock-off once they knew the secret.



* In TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin, the antagonist group MAVO managed to raid the Trio's home while they were out, successfully stealing the blueprints to the heroes' airship. The result? The much more evil looking and combat read Eclipse.

** In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', the SpacePirates make several weapon designs to emulate Samus's Chozo Powersuit. They also attempted to copy the morph ball, only to have it ''break every bone in the test subject's body''. Needless to say, they moved on.

** In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', the SpacePirates make several weapon designs to emulate Samus's Chozo Powersuit. While they are supposed to be copies of her various beam weapons, they all act like the regular Power Beam (an inferior version to boot). They also attempted to copy the morph ball, only to have it ''break every bone in the test subject's body''. Needless to say, they moved on.

* [[AiIsACrapshoot Evil robot]] ComicBook/{{Ultron}} from the Franchise/MarvelUniverse frequently tried making evil knockoffs (of sorts) to limited success. Both the Vision and Jocasta's thought patterns were based off those of Comicbook/TheAvengers WonderMan and TheWasp respectively, but both also quickly turned against him and would go on the become Avengers themselves, making them more-or-less [[InvertedTrope good knockoffs]] of already good characters. Similarly, Alkhema was created with the thought patterns of Mockingbird and was arguably a successful Evil Knockoff as she was genuinely evil but ended up betraying him anyway. Even later on, Ultron planned to replace all organic life with evil knockoffs after he [[KillAllHumans killed them all]] (he failed, of course).

* Dr. Ivo Robotnik in ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' has created several robotic duplicates of Sonic, Metal Sonic from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD'' (pictured above is a scene from his arrival in the [[Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie animated movie]]) being the most famous. He's never used more than one at the same time, though - apparently Robotnik is GenreSavvy enough to know about ConservationOfNinjitsu.

* Dr. Viktor Frankenbeans, the main villain of the ''ComicBook/{{Madballs}}'' comic book published by defunct Creator/MarvelComics subsidiary Star Comics, occasionally tried to defeat the Madballs by deliberately creating Madballs of his own. Such efforts resulted in creating a trio of animate bowling balls called the Badballs, the second series Madballs, the Super Madballs, and a female Madball named Madbelle. The second series Madballs and the Super Madballs, however, ended up turning against Frankenbeans and siding with the original Madballs.
