* [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha, Fate and Hayate]] got their very own Evil Twins in the form of The Darkness of the Book of Darkness copies Material-S(tarlight), Material-L(ightning) and Material-D(arkness), respectively, in the PSP game ''Battle of the Aces''. They are identical to their good analogues, except that they are stronger, their skills can't be customized, they have different hair and clothes colors, and their personalities are complete opposites of the originals ([[TheSpock Material-S is coldly logical]], Material-L is TheBerserker, and Material-D [[BigBad is just plain evil]]).

* [[SdrawckabName Xitra Regeirk]], the BigBad of the ''VideoGame/AdventureQuest'' Bizarre Flecks StoryArc is Artix's AlternateUniverse counterpart; while the Artix of our reality is an [[TheUndead undead]]-[[TheHunter slaying]] paladin, [[FanNickname Artix von Facial Hair]] is a sadistic {{necromancer}} who appears to have [[VillainWorld successfully]] [[TakeOverTheWorld taken over his world]]. Ryuusei's analog from said arc is an [[InvertedTrope inversion]], and an interesting and competent one at that.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' introduces a an evil set of not twins, but ''fraternal quadruplets''. [[spoiler:Vinsmokes Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji, the older and younger brothers of Sanji of the Straw Hat Pirates, respectively, are ''nothing'' like him - while they do share his cool head, his [[HandsomeLech perverted tendencies]], and his [[HotBlooded temper]], they have none of his compassion and care for no one but themselves. As children, they viciously bullied Sanji for continuously displaying compassion and for being a weak waste of space, something that their [[AbusiveParents father]], [[BloodKnight Judge]], condoned. It's later revealed that all of the Vinsmoke quadruplets, including Sanji, were physically and psychologically altered by Judge in utero in an attempt to turn them into the perfect {{Super Soldier}}s, but their mother, Sora, secretly intervened by taking a drug that reversed gene-altering surgeries so she can protect their humanity. Only Sanji was successfully saved, while his brothers only have but a tiny shred of humanity left. They can't understand why Sanji continues to act kind to others, because they were programmed that way.]]

** The soap opera parody "The Young and The Youthful" plays with this trope by having AlecBaldwin portray both the handsome and wealthy Pierce Talbott and his mentally challenged evil twin Petey, who takes his place. Much of the humor comes from the other characters' apparent inability to immediately recognize that Petey has taken Pierce's place.

* ''{{Popular}}'' had Bobbi and Jessie Glass working at Kennedy High (as well as their brother Rock). Bobbi and Rock were notoriously mean and unpleasant, while Jessie the nurse seemed a bit nicer, comparatively speaking. And yet, in the first season finale, Jessie plotted to kill her twin and frame all of Bobbi's sophomore biology class for the murder. Who's the mean one now?
* ''The Tonight Show With Jay Leno'' in the 90's had Jay playing different characters such as Iron Jay and Beyondo. The character of his that fits right in this trope is Evil Jay who appears at every full moon. Years before that, Jay Leno satirized the entire 'evil twin' trope when a guest on Johnny Carson's ''Tonight Show''. Leno had a marked-up ''TV Guide'' and showed what seemed like a dozen 'evil twin' themed shows for that one week. There was one on ''Hawaii Five-O''. The bit wrapped with ''{{Dynasty}}'', which had Crystal replaced with her 'scheming lookalike', with Jay shouting, "Scheming lookalike? Scheming lookalike? It's an '''EVIL TWIN'''!". This trope is so endemic in television that perhaps we should be asking which shows never did it.

* Robert and Cameron Robinson from ''{{Neighbours}}'', in a rare example of the evil twin being introduced first, albeit while [[TwinSwitch pretending to be the good twin.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/GummiBears'' turns out that Duke Igthron actually has the opposite: a Good Twin, his twin brother Sir Victor, almost identical except for the fact that Igthorn is brunette and has beard. Which comes handy in one episode when Igthron impersonates his brother who is an admired hero among the townsfolk and one of the most trusted men of King Gregor?
