* The finale of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' pits the eponymous mecha against the Grand Zamboa, a twisted doppelganger created to cause despair by [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame beating the heroes using their own shape]]. TheMovie goes step further with Super TengenToppaGurrenLagann and Super Grand Zamboa using the same [[FinishingMove Giga Drill Breaker]] at each other.

** Any fight between the [[spoiler:two Syaorans]] in ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' comes off like this, since they both use nearly identical styles of kickboxing and swordplay. The only difference is in their magic: Syaoran has inherited the Li family's magic, while [[spoiler:the clone has stolen half of Fai's magic]]. The latter is also far more ruthless in combat, which generally gives him an edge.

* ''{{Naruto}}'' does this near the end of the Rescue Gaara arc in Shippuuden. Clones of Gai, Lee, Neji and Tenten attack after they remove the seals that [[spoiler:hide Sasori, Deidara and the dead Gaara inside the Akatsuki lair.]]

* In one of the YuYuHakusho movies, Kuwabara faces an enemy who can immediately match any [[KiAttacks Ki Attack]] he performs, resulting in this trope. Kuwabara defeats the foe by unleashing an enormous burst of energy in order to drain both of them, and then just whaling on the guy, who is physically weaker than him.

* There's a (possibly apocryphal) story about a twin pair, one left-handed and one right-handed, who got into a GentlemensDuel. They took the required 10 paces, turned, fired... and [[ShootTheBullet their bullets met and melded at the halfway point]].

* [[Wrestling/TheYoungBucks Matt Jackson]] and Chris Sabin both tagged out during the first night main event of [[Wrestling/RingOfHonor Supercard Of Honor X]] due to this trope preventing either of them from gaining an advantage over the other. It was less the case with Alex Shelley and Nick due to the latter's [[IShallTauntYou posturing]].[[/folder]]

* SymbionicTitan has a variation of this: [[BackToBackBadasses back-to-back]] symmetry. The two aren't clones, but Lance and Cain's martial arts moves are exactly the same, but mirrored, prompting both to ask the other where they learned to fight. Being that Lance learned to fight on another planet, and the Galalunian technology they find in the G3 base, this laid the groundwork for some sort of connection between Earth and Galaluna, though [[CutShort nothing came of it]].

* Near the end of the ''RurouniKenshin'' manga, Aoshi fought against another user of two swords who used his own moves against him. It worked for a while until Aoshi dropped his swords and just started beating him with only his fists.

* A novice tries this against Akira in ''HikaruNoGo''. Unfortunately, as noted below, in Go you ''can't'' win by mirroring your opponent, and Akira forces him to resign.
