** ...at least until the first expansion, where she's shown a few times spying on the Warriors of Darkness and eventually returns to the main plot ([[OldSaveBonus with slightly different dialogue depending on whether you did the Coil or not]]) and becomes instrumental to their defeat.

By the time the second expansion rolls around she's just as much part of the main cast as her brother.

* Desna and Eska, Avatar Korra's fraternal twin cousins, are described by ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' writers as "androgynous, creepy twins." PlayedForLaughs when Bolin calls them both "pretty ladies" [[UnsettlingGenderReveal before Korra tells him Desna is a guy]]. (He then has to ask which one Desna is.)

* The OfficialFanfictionUniversity of ''Redwall'' [[JustifiedTrope has an excuse]] for this; in one of the original printings of the book ''Redwall'', the character Killconey swapped between male and female pronouns thanks to a typographical error. (According to later printings he's meant to be male, in case you're wondering.) In the OFUR, this has resulted in there now being two of him, one male and one female. The female one is generally referred to as Konnie to avoid confusion. She's technically more of an OppositeSexClone, but they think of each other as twins.

* OlderThanSteam: Sebastian and Viola from Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/TwelfthNight'', are so much alike that people mistake Sebastian for Viola (who for reasons of plot has disguised herself as a man).

In RealLife this would just fall under StrongFamilyResemblance, and isn't all that common--any set of fraternal twins, opposite gender or otherwise, won't be any more likely to resemble each other than normal siblings, other than being exactly the same age. Unless, of course, one identical twin is {{trans|sexual}}gender and the other isn't.

* Also averted on ''The EdisonTwins'': Annie is a redhead, while her twin Tom is blonde. (There was an even an episode in which they explained the concept of fraternal vs. identical twins.)
** Meanwhile, their younger brother Paul is a brunette!

Added DiffLines:

* In '' Series/RavensHome'', Nia mentions that her hairstyle is the only thing that separates her from her twin brother. Of course their actors [[AllegedLookalikes don't look similar]], though Nia could also have been joking.

* Suou and Shion from the second season of ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack''. Explained by the fact that [[spoiler:Suou is actually a copy that Shion made of himself, but because the copies he makes with his power always have one major difference from the original, Suou turned out female]]. Except it's not justified because [[spoiler:even though the current Suou is a copy of Shion the original is still shown to be a half identical twin in the flashbacks she appears in. The fact that the current Suou looks like her younger self despite being a copy of her brother is evident of this]].
** MindScrew in any case.

* Isabelle and Digby from the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series look similar besides fur color and clothing. In ''Happy Home Designer'', Digby insists on being called a twin brother, not a little brother.

* In VideoGame/OdinSphere, we have playable protagonist Velvet and her twin brother Ingway. While not exactly alike, both have similar features, share hair and eye colors, and have a tendency to wear rather {{Stripperiffic}} clothing.

* Alphinaud and Alisaie from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' are this in terms of looks, but their personalities are so different that Alphinaud serves as a major character throughout main plot, whilst Alisaie leaves soon after her introduction and is only important in the plot for the Binding Coil of Bahamut raid. Humorously, Alphinaud (the male twin) is [[RunningGag frequently mistaken]] for Alisaie (the female twin), but not the otherway around.
