* A strange case cropped up on ''AllMyChildren''. Tad got EasyAmnesia and ended up in California, where he met Nola Orsini, who instantly recognized him as her long-lost son Ted. Ted had disappeared as a child, but Nola saw Tad and knew this was what Ted would grow up to look like. After a few years, Tad returned to Pine Valley and got his memory back. The following year, it turned out Nola was right. The real Ted showed up, and he looked ''exactly'' like Tad.

**Also, there's a whole hospital wing of people who ''want'' to be this to Vetinari. Cosmo Lavish is the main one.

** One time, Bender had to go into the Witness Protection Program to stay safe from the Robot Mafia. While making a delivery on the moon, the crew sees a robot farmer that looks like Bender but acts like he doesn't know them. At first they think Bender is doing a pretty good acting job until Professor sees the robot's memory circuit and thinks Bender has been reprogrammed. Despite Zoidberg protecting the robot from Clamps, he is killed by the Donbot's daughter who Bender abandoned. The crew then grieves over Bender's apparent death at a pizza parlor, where it's revealed that's where Bender was actually hiding. Upon realizing that an innocent bot was killed...[[HumansAreBastards they celebrate the fact that with the Robot Mafia thinking Bender was dead, he can come out of hiding]].

* ''Franchise/FatalFrame'' has Mafuyu Hinasaki look nearly identical to the man Kirie fell in love with before the ceremony. During a flashback that Miku observes of Kirie's memories, she even mistakes the guy for Mafuyu for a second.

* [[CanonImmigrant Naoto Kuragane]] ''VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}'' is notable for his visible similarities to the protagonist [[[NinetiesAntiHero Ragna]]. This gets him into trouble more than once, as most of the cast want to fight Ragna for various different reasons. A rather chilling example is with [[{{Yandere}} Nu-13]], who (expecting Ragna) is at first her usual crazy self... and then [[VillainousBreakdown ramps that crazy]] UpToEleven when she realises the deception.

** Artoria and Jeanne are not exactly twins but they look very similar due to them both being [[LadyOfWar sword wielding blonds]] wearing {{Battle Ballgown}}s. A more accurate comparison would be Nero and Artoria, though it is questionable how canon Nero is. In both cases, while their ''faces'' are extremely similar, [[MostCommonSuperpower Jeanne and Nero are have certain other traits that are distinctly different]]. And then there's Artoria many other non-canon knock-offs.

* There's a chapter in one of the later ''Manga/{{Lupin III}}'' series where the guys recruit a mousy, ordinary civilian who happens to bear a strong resemblance to Fujiko Mine. Once she's given a [[TheMakeover Makeover]] and a new haircut, she realizes that she looks almost ''exactly'' like Fujiko.

* Used as a plot point in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist''. [[spoiler:''Everyone'' has an IdenticalStranger on the other side of the Gate, which is "our" world.]] Some are exactly identical (like [[spoiler:Hughes]] and [[spoiler:Edward]]) down to the name while others (like Alfons, who is [[spoiler:Alphonse's]] counterpart, and Noah, who is [[spoiler:Rose's]] counterpart]]) are more individual but still parallel their counterparts.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Late in the DPP arc, the group meets Dawn's doppelganger, Princess Salvia. Salvia uses the resemblance to [[PrinceAndPauper switch places with Dawn]], allowing her to get out of her house and participate in a contest, which she and her Togekiss always wanted to do.
