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.

Also note that due to the androgynous features of this trope, such twins will traditionally be depicted as AmbiguousGender, playing DudeLooksLikeALady, {{Bishonen}} and WholesomeCrossdresser for the brother, and GenkiGirl, {{Tomboy}}-type {{Tsundere}} for the sister. For this reason, this trope is also very common in the stories with TransgenderFetishization and OtokonokoGenre or SweetOnPollyOliver, where it serves as a standard explanation of the protagonist's femininity or the reason for his forced dressing up.

* Played completely straight with the BrotherSisterTeam [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaname.PNG Kaname]] and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saori_8.PNG Saori]] Shishido from ''[[VisualNovel/ShallWeDateNinjaShadow Shall We Date?: Ninja Shadow]]''. It's even a huge plot point since Kaname is killed off almost at the start of the game and Saori pulls a SweetPollyOliver to join a group of vigilante that he was supposed to become a part of, needing just an ImportantHaircut and putting on male clothes to pass as Kaname.
