* In the final book of the ''Literature/{{DarthBane}}'' trilogy, Bane and his apprentice Zannah fight a duel to the death (as is natural for Sith). Through the rest of the book, Bane had 1. been experiencing some twitching in the fingers of his hand and 2. researched a Dark Side technique for [[GrandTheftMe transferring one's consciousness into another's body]]. He attempts to use the technique during their duel, and after the duel is over the book lets the readers wonder a bit by mentioning that Zannah's fingers are twitching... [[spoiler:It's just a tease, though; the trope is averted and Zannah is in full control of her body.]]

Sometimes, the original character who had that habit, phrase or trait is forgotten, and people mistakenly think that the habit/trait/phrase started with the second character. An example could be Film/JamesBond's CatchPhrase: “Bond, James Bond.” In the first ''Literature/JamesBond'' novel, it started with the BondGirl Sylvia Trench, who introduced herself with “Trench, Sylvia Trench”; but only if Bond had adopted the catch phrase as a nod to her.

Note that the person being remembered doesn't have to be dead.

See also DeadPersonImpersonation. Also, because it's a Death Trope, there will be spoilers.

* Walter White of ''Series/BreakingBad'' does this a lot, adopting subtle quirks of the people who he's killed or have died because of him. For instance, he starts cutting the crusts off his sandwiches like Krazy-8 used to. Others include taking on Gus Fring's method of using his public persona to blow off people he doesn't want to talk to, or ordering his whiskey on the rocks, the way Hank used to.

to. He also somehow adopts quirks that he had no way of knowing about, as he puts a towel down in front of the toilet to kneel on when vomiting the same way Gus did once, when Walter wasn't even remotely in the vicinity to witness it.
