** The relaunch nivels also include the character of Gul Macet, another Cardassian played by Marc Alaimo in an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. He's Dukat's cousin and they are almost identical, but Macet is a fecent and honorable man, making him the Good Twin.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Goku gets another [[IdenticalStranger evil doppelganger]] called Goku Black. In stark contrast to Goku, he is pure evil, being a sadistic mass-murderer who causes a second apocalypse in Future Trunks' BadFuture. Played with in that while his face and voice (he is also voiced by Creator/MasakoNozawa) are almost identical to Goku's, Black is otherwise completely different in every other way: his fighting style is refined and technical, compared to Goku's somewhat crude and mostly self-taught style; he's lean where Goku is burly; and he speaks with a clear, very formal speech pattern, where Goku has a heavy, uneducated "hick" accent. Even Beerus remarks when watching them fight that despite similar appearances, Black clearly ''feels'' different from Goku. [[spoiler:The reason is because Goku Black is the end result after [[TimeyWimeyBall one alternate version of]] the Supreme Kai [[BigBad Zamasu]] used the Super Dragon Balls to [[GrandTheftMe switch bodies with an alternate Goku]] and kill him]].

** Interestingly, Darkwing's evil side - Negaduck (II), but also his non-galvanized EnemyWithout, who acts almost identically - seems to bring out his ''good'' sides in a non-moral sense. The original is so conceited and bumbling he often can't get anything done until he really [[LetsGetDangerous gets dangerous]], but Negaduck is simply constantly angry and doesn't stop to pose or fool around. Because of this, the Evil Twin in this case has more attitude and is much more BadAss much of the time. Of course, he does have the drawback of being compulsively evil for its own sake and AxCrazy.

* Each of the main characters in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' has a [[IdenticalStranger doppleganger]]. Lily's duplicate Jasmine is a clear Evil Twin who robs Barney, Ted and Robin. However, Barney's doppleganger, Dr John Stangel, is a mature and well-respected fertility doctor who is visibly unamused by his duplicates' antics, making ''Barney'' the Evil Twin.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' episode "Squeeze the Day", Bloo fools around with an eyebrow pencil, first drawing BigOlEyebrows and a moustache on his face and pretending to be "Pierre ze Schwan", then adding an [[GoodHairEvilHair evil goatee]] and pretending to be "Pierre's evil brother". Then he drew an ear on the side of his head and claimed he was "Pierre's evil cousin." Things got weird when he put on lipstick and said he was "Pierre's evil girlfriend" and started kissing the mirror until Mac shows up and things get awkward.

*** In Case 3, Phoenix must track down his evil twin (nicknamed "Xin Eohp" by Maya) who has gotten a client found guilty with a laughable defence. And then you find said Evil Twin, and discover that he [[{{Jerkass}} really doesn't pass for Phoenix at all]]. Apparently, Godot isn't the only one blind in the courtroom...

** One of the most horrific ways to create one is via the evil spell Dark Womb, found in the ''Book of Vile Darkness''. It actually impregnates the victim, causing said victim to bring an unholy infant to term within minutes, inflicting a great deal of damage due to the incredibly fast pregnancy and birth. (It can be cast on a male victim, and if so, he takes even more damage, as a male body is not made for such a thing. The half-fiend infant grows to adulthood within minutes and becomes a duplicate of its "parent", its primary goal from then on being to kill the parent. (Assuming the victim survived, of course.)
