* The French Angel, aka "[[RedBaron The World's Ugliest Man]]", became such a huge draw when he arrived in the Boston territory that a wave of expies rose across North America, including but not limited to Swedish Angel(formerly [[IHaveManyNames Phil/Olaf/Popey/Frankenstein/Olaffsen]]), Russian Angel(formerly Tony Angelo and a former [[LegacyCharacter Masked Marvel]]), Canadian Angel (formerly Bill Rush, who beforehand was in another ersatz role as [[PaletteSwap Red Masked Marvel]]), Polish Angel(formerly Iron Talun, who [[SubvertedTrope in a bit of variation]] was [[{{Hunk}} cute]]), Czech Angel(formerly Stanley Pinto), Irish Angel(formerly Clive Welsh), Golden Angel (formerly Tiger Jack Moore) and Black Angel (Gil Guerrero). There was also Super Swedish Angel (formerly Tor Johnson) who was a CaptainErsatz of an expy and two {{distaff counterpart}}s, the Lady Angel gimmick being taken up both by Jean Noble and Yulie Brynner. The animated ogre WesternAnimaion/{{Shrek}} also closely resembles the worlds ugliest man.

* Yasunori Kato, antagonist of the classic series ''[[Literature/TeitoMonogatari Doomed Megalopolis]]'', has inspired a slew of imitators, which have in turn inspired others, to the point where it's difficult to tell who inspired who after the original. Characters of his lineage include [[Franchise/StreetFighter M. Bison]], [[Manga/RikiOh Washizaki]], [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Rudolph von Stronheim]], the [[Anime/KinnikumanNisei Blocken family]], [[VideoGame/WorldHeroes Brocken]], and [[Manga/OnePiece Shiliew]], while surprisingly, we have a heroic version in the name of {{VideoGame/Raidou|KuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy}} [[VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon Kuzunoha]]. Also, they are ALL descended from the Hugo Boss-designed [[PuttingOnTheReich Nazi officer uniforms.]]

** Goku clones include the title character of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Natsu from ''Manga/FairyTail'', Gon from ''Manga/HunterxHunter'', Anime/{{Flint|TheTimeDetective}} and even Monkey D. Luffy from ''Manga/OnePiece''. Worth noting is that ''Dragon Ball'''s creator was understudied by the authors of ''Naruto'' and ''One Piece''.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'': Kefka. He may well be the ''inspiration'' for every {{Camp}}, MonsterClown, [[StrawNihilist Nihilist]] in gaming the world over. Ironic, considering he's frequently considered the FF version of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. He also started the trend of RPG bosses having a [[LightIsNotGood vaguely angelic]] OneWingedAngel form, predating even the TropeNamer up above.

* Every ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' generation after the first will have an adorable electric rodent resembling Pikachu, which seems a little redundant given that Pikachu itself is also available in every generation bar [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite the]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 fifth]].

Every ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' generation after the first will have an adorable electric rodent resembling Pikachu, which seems a little redundant given that Pikachu itself is also available in every generation bar [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite the]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 fifth]].fifth]]. This trend is spoofed by the introduction of [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Mimikyu_(Pok%C3%A9mon) Mimikyu]], a Ghost-type who wears a poorly-made Pikachu costume in the hopes that he will become as popular as Pikachu. Ironically, Mimikyu was so [[TheWoobie adorably pathetic]] that he gained an [[MemeticMutation internet]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse fandom]] before his game was even released.

* ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'': Son Wukong In addition to many Chinese adaptations and knock-offs, the immortality-seeking monkey king with an extensible staff and great magical powers is known to the Japanese as Son Goku. (Most expies, however, only copy Wukong's {{Munchkin}}-levels of mischievousness and forget that he's also a DangerouslyGenreSavvy GuileHero.)
