* Patton Oswalt played a series of characters like this in ''Series/MarvelsAgentsofSHIELD''. He claims they are brothers, but everyone else thinks something weird is going on. So far, it hasn't been resolved.

* In every PinkPanther comic book story, the panther runs into a foul-tempered, moustached short man with a big nose who looks exactly like the foul-tempered, moustached short man with a big nose from the previous story. He keeps running into these guys in the animated shorts as well, but not as consistently.

* When [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]] first wakes up [[HumanPopsicle after being dead,]] he's very confused to encounter the same woman (Doctor Durona) at, apparently, three different ages. His worry that he's somehow skipping years at a time is exacerbated when he then meets the younger versions of her again. [[spoiler: Turns out they're all clones of the original Doctor Durona, Lily Durona.]]

* ''Series/ThePeterSerafinowiczShow'' had a ''BigBrother'' parody (to the point of using the same graphics from that year's show and even the ''theme tune'') called ''Mike House''. All eight housemates were the same person.

Added DiffLines:

* It's unclear if the unnamed blonde clerk girl who seems to man every store in ''Webcomic/{{Frivolesque}}'' is always the same individual or not. Especially since multiple ones sometimes appear together in some strips. However, they always have a different color scheme whenever they appear together, or when the main characters visit two different stores in the same timeframe, indicating they might be quadruplets and the green one is the "default" sister.

* In a [[http://www.nbcnews.com/id/23849928/ns/dateline_nbc-newsmakers/t/twist-fate/#.V2-Z9rgrI2w Dateline news story]], a group of friends were in a car accident and two girls were mistaken for the other. Side by side there was no real resemblance (different eyes, smile, hair and height), but the injuries from the car accident and hospital conditions hid those differences and family members were not able to notice that, both families believing they were their daughter. One died early on, the other was in a coma for a month before she woke up and was able to identify herself.

* In ''MyWorldMyWay'', this is subverted; all the minor [=NPCs=] in each town claim to be different people despite looking exactly the same. The subversion is that they really ''are'' the same people; they're in fact [[AllPartOfTheShow actors hired by someone to fool the protagonist]].

* AgentsOfCracked features a rival website to [[Website/{{Cracked}} Cracked.com]] called Broked.com, which is more than willing to steal Cracked's jokes. When Michael and Daniel eventually go to their office, they find other versions of themselves working there. [[spoiler:A later episode revealed these as clones.]]

--->'''Brock:''' Jenny from Viridian City wears her skirt shorter than the other Jennys. The Celadon City Jenny uses styling gel in her luxurious hair! Saffron City Jenny wears exotic Vileplume No. 5 Perfume. Then there's the vivacious Vermillion City Jenny... (''Misty carts him off the screen before he can continue'')

** ''Best Wishes'' introduces the various Don Georges, all of them being the managers of the Battle Clubs who look exactly the same. Unlike Joy and Jenny, each Don George has a different sub-color.
