* ''Series/GoodnightSweetheart'' includes occasional appearances of Reg's PresentDay identical grandson, who's followed him into the police force. The episode where Gary travels to the [[VictorianLondon Victorian era]], rather than WorldWarTwo, introduces Reg's identical grandfather as a Bow Street Runner, as well as an identical ancestor of Yvonne.

* In the ''Series/{{Sanctuary}}'' episode "Normandy", Helen Magnus recalls her part in the D-Day invasion during WorldWarTwo. During their mission in Carentan, France, they are aided by American troops, headed by Captain Jack Zimmerman, who looks exactly like Will Zimmerman, Helen's second-in-command, and is played by the same actor. While Captain Zimmerman is killed at the end of the episode, it is implied that he is Will's grandfather. Interestingly, Helen makes no mention of this to Will, even though this could be one of the reasons she chose him to join the Sanctuary (i.e. his grandfather saved her life at the cost of his own).

* This is how Sherlock Holmes reveals the motive for murder in ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheBaskervilles''. Once such details as hairstyle and dress are cut out, the murderer bears such a strong resemblance to an old portrait of Hugo Baskerville that he must be a direct descendant, and therefore in line to inherit once Sir Charles and Sir Henry are out of the way.

** But played straight in ''The Worst Crime in the World'', a later ''Literature/FatherBrown'' story. Sir John Musgrave and his son Captain James Musgrave share a family resemblance strong enough that [[spoiler: the son can kill his father and impersonate him by shaving his beard and wearing a wig.]]

* Used as the basis of Creator/RobertSheckley's story "Double Indemnity": a man time-travels to the past to find his ancestor, since said ancestor looks almost exactly like him, which would allow him to pose as the man's time-travel mishap-born clone (for sake of an insurance scam). Apparently, the man's criteria for choosing the right ancestor was simply "someone who would not be missed", and the only reason he rejects several candidates is because they happen to have acquired differences (missing an arm, covered with pox) -- implying that every single of his ancestors is identical.

* Laxus from ''Manga/FairyTail'' looks like a younger Makarov, except much taller and more muscular.

* Laxus from ''Manga/FairyTail'' looks like a younger Makarov, except much taller and more muscular. [[ArcVillain Hades]], who was Precht Gaebolg and the man who appointed Makarov to the title of guildmaster back in the day, actually double-takes when Laxus crashes the party and calls him "boy", which he used to call Makarov, while an image of a younger Makarov is superimposed on him.
