* ''TheBradyBunch'': The fifth-season episode, "Two Petes in a Pod," saw Peter meet his exact double, Arthur Owens, in school. Wacky hijinx ensue, and be sure to watch for a scene when Arthur-as-Peter helps Jan with her homework ... and cozies up to her very closely (without Mike, Carol or Alice even so much as batting an eye; Jan doesn't even say anything).

* ''Film/TheAssignment'' (1997). While holidaying in Israel, a Cuban-American naval officer is mistaken for notorious terrorist Carlos the Jackal and arrested. The matter is quickly resolved, but the Mossad and CIA realise they have an opportunity to kill off the real Carlos and recruit the officer into a scheme to make the KGB think Carlos has become a CIA informant.

* ''Film/{{Underground}}'': the {{FilmWithinAFilm movie based on events in a previous scene]] uses actors who look identical to the real people, only with slightly different hair. The resemblance is so perfect that Blacky believes that his hold nemesis has returned and shoots at him.

* In the ''[[Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Mata Nui Online Game]]'', the developers accidentally mixed up the masks of several characters, thereby making Hafu look like Taipu and vice versa. In ''MNOG II'', they were given the correct masks finally, but this leads to the player character [[LampshadeHanging confusing them]], which makes Taipu quite mad. The developers were basically poking fun at their own goof-up.

** And Skeeter still has to undergo plastic surgery to complete the resemblance. It was close, but not identical beforehand.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "Coupon for Crazyness", Dexter trades places with a goofy, hyperactive look-alike named Dextor who has scientist parents. He switches back when he tires of the cold, clinical parenting style of Dextor's parents.

* In "The Case of the Rich Woman", a story in Creator/AgathaChristie's ''Literature/ParkerPyneInvestigates'', the title character apparently has a doppelganger who is a poor servant girl. The truth is rather more complicated.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': The ''Musha Kero'' saga taks place on a planet full of people resembling our heroes' friends. Their actual characters range from disturbingly similar (Fuyuki, Momoka) to completely different (Natsumi, Saburo) to something from out of left field (Mois.)
** One episode revolved around a girl named Asami who looked exactly like Angol Mois going around and mugging and/or beating people up. The only difference between them was that Asami's eyes were blue while Angol Mois' were gold. [[spoiler: It turns out that when Angol Mois first came to Earth she saw Asami beating up the "Sleazy 26" gang and decided to model herself after "Earth's Greatest Warrior," per instructions from her father.]]

* Spoofed in a filler episode of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' (one of the infamous two-years worth of fillers) where Ino is asked to substitute for a princess that "looks just like her," which she does...if you don't count the fact that said princess probably weighs two to three times more than Ino. That was because she ''used to'' look a lot (though not exactly) like Ino, but when she was nervous about meeting the guy she was arranged to marry she started eating a lot and got fat.

* Used for symbolism in ''Film/WildStrawberries''. The joyful, happy Sara that elderly Isak meets on the road, and the cousin Sara that young Isak was in love with, are played by the same actress. Sara 2.0 is involved in a love triangle with her young friends just like Sara 1 was in a love triangle with Isak and Sigfrid. Sara 2 even says to Isak as she's going away that “It’s you I really love, you know—today, tomorrow, always!”
