* 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.

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 JamesBond's CatchPhrase: “Bond, James Bond.” In the first James Bond 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.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': After [[TotalEclipseOfThePlot The Eclipse]], Guts adds [[spoiler:throwing knives]] to his arsenal, modeled after [[spoiler:Judeau]]. {{Justified}} for more than sentimental reasons; as part of the Band of the Hawk, Guts could afford to specialize in melee combat because he was typically backed up on the battlefield by dedicated archers. Once he set out to become a true OneManArmy, he needed a more varied arsenal.
