** The brown-haired Hank and Peggy have a blond-haired son Bobby. Their parents also had brown hair in their youth but it's implied it comes from Hank's side of the family as Hank's half-brother that Cotton fathered from his second wife Didi looks identical to Bobby blond hair and all. Bobby also has a very short buzz cut, so it would be tough to tell the exact color. Not to mention his hair was a few shades darker after the series switched to digital ink and paint.

** Turns out that Hank has another half-brother named Junichiro, who was the result of Cotton's relationship with his Japanese nurse following WWII. Junichiro looks exactly like an Asian version of Hank, even though Hank gets his looks from his mother Tilly.

* ''Series/{{Roots}}'''s Chicken George is the son of Kunta Kinte's daughter Kizzy and her white slave master; he is one of the darkest characters in the series, significantly more so than his mother (and looks about the same age, though that's due to a [[PlayingGertrude different trope]]).

* Similarly, Creator/KennethBranagh's ''MuchAdoAboutNothing'' casts Denzel Washington as Don Pedro and Keanu Reeves as his brother, Don John (the bastard son of their father). Given both that and the relative quality of their acting, it takes quite the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief to go along with it. It's possible, however, that they resemble their respective mothers.

** Gohan looks like both of his parents, while Goten looks exactly like Goku did in the original Dragonball, [[HereditaryHairstyle including his hairstyle]]. Gohan's daughter Pan in turn inherited the shape of her mother Videl's eyes but his eye color.

Added DiffLines:

* None of the Erin's care much for biological accuracy when it comes to ''Literature/WarriorCats''. There are numerous characters such as Graystripe, Lionblaze, Brambleclaw, Sandstorm, Ivypool, Mistyfoot, and Scourge who are either impossible for their parentage or are just plain impossible.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Injustice Gods Among Us}}'' ComicBook/BlackCanary's and ComicBook/GreenLantern's son is a blond. The problem is, Black Canary dyes her hair blonde. She actually has black hair. It's possible the colorists forgot that and [[AdaptationDyeJob made her a natural blonde]].
** Actually, the kid is Black Canary and ComicBook/GreenArrow's, and Oliver Queen IS a natural blond.

* Dawn Summers from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', was a magically-created clone of her sister Buffy, which would essentially make them identical twins. However, SarahMichelleGellar and MichelleTrachtenberg don't look similar enough to be real life siblings, much less twins, especially after Michelle Trachtenberg went through a growth spurt and ended up much taller than Sarah Michelle Gellar.

** Charlie and Alan have the same hair color and that's it. Otherwise, they don't have any resemblance to each other (for one, Creator/CharlieSheen has brown eyes and Jon Cryer has blue eyes, but it's difficult to tell this in a sitcom.)
** None of Berta's relatives look anything alike. Berta's a redhead, her daughter Naomi is blonde and her sister, other daughter and granddaughter are brunettes. Then again, considering the [[LowerClassLout implications of Berta's family]], it could be justified.
