* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "The Farnsworth Parabox", the two Leelas do this, to no effect. After they lunge at each other and end up simply colliding in midair, one of the Professor Farnsworths tells them "Now, now, perfectly symmetrical violence never solved anything."
-->'''Leela''': "We're exactly the same! I know all her moves; therefore I have the upper hand!"
** Also from ''Futurama'' is Flexo, a bending robot exactly like Bender. Whenever they get into a fight, they throw punches and just end up hitting each other's fists.
* The final battle between Zuko and Azula in ''[[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Avatar: The Last Airbender]]'' definitely has these moments, often with red and blue flames mirroring perfectly.

* During the TournamentArc of ''Anime/MyHeroAcademia'', Kirishima ends up fighting against Tetsutetsu, whose Quirk and fighting style are almost identical: Kirishima can harden his body into rock, Tetsutetsu can harden his body into steel, and both are physical close-combat specialists. The pair match each other exactly blow-for-blow until they finally [[DoubleKnockout knock each other out]], and the fight has to be settled by a tie-breaker. [[spoiler:Kirishima wins.]]

* In ''DynastyWarriorsGundam'' 2, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Elpeo Puru]] and [[CloningBlues Puru II]]'s story modes, being already intertwined, culminate in a cutscene wherein the two battle in their identical Quebeley Mobile suits, each mirroring the other's moves perfectly. They comment on how good and natural it feels.

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': In the Unlimited Blade Works route, this is how Shirou manages to do battle against Gilgamesh. Usually, Gilgamesh simply [[StormOfBlades spams magic swords]] at his opponent in such numbers that they are overwhelmed, but Shirou's unique brand of sword-creation magic ([[spoiler:plus skills he subconsciously absorbed from Archer, his future self]]) allows him to spam equal numbers of swords right back, cancelling Gilgamesh's barrage out. With that advantage removed, he's able to catch Gilgamesh off-guard and defeat him before Gilgamesh pulls out [[StoryBreakerPower Ea]].
