* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' originally just had the Stag-based Pinsir, and didn't get its Type C until Heracross was created in Generation 2 (originally, Scyther was Pinsir's version counterpart). Generation 2 also introduced Ledyba and Ledian, but it usually isn't associated with Pinsir or Heracross. Oddly, Kabuto and Kabutops are not examples, being based more on horseshoe crabs. Their name comes from traditional ''kabuto'', which are samurai helmets. [[FridgeBrilliance That's why the Dome Fossil is called so]].
** The relationship between Pinsir and Heracross was reinforced in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', where two ended up being version exclusives, on top of both of them receiving [[SuperMode Mega Evolutions]].

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', the two first beetles (Pinsir and Heracross) were originally just had the Stag-based Pinsir, not linked with each other. Pinsir was released in VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue and didn't get its Type C until Heracross in the next game, VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver. Pinsir was created in Generation 2 (originally, paired instead with Scyther was Pinsir's version counterpart). Generation 2 also introduced Ledyba and Ledian, but it usually isn't associated with (a mantis-themed Pokémon). As the franchise progressed, the two are often paired up. This is visible as in the second game, Scyther got an evolution whereas Pinsir or Heracross. Oddly, Kabuto didn't. Various media since then involved the two in some way (like an episode of the Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime featured a feud between Pinsir and Kabutops are not examples, being based more on horseshoe crabs. Their name comes from traditional ''kabuto'', which are samurai helmets. [[FridgeBrilliance That's why Heracross swarms). And later on, the Dome Fossil is called so]].
** The
relationship between Pinsir and Heracross was reinforced in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', where two ended up being version exclusives, on top of both of them receiving [[SuperMode Mega Evolutions]].Evolutions]]. So it's a case of Type C becoming Type B (in a sense that there is a connection between the two).


Added DiffLines:

** Despite their names, Kabuto and Kabutops are not examples, being based more on horseshoe crabs. Their name comes from traditional ''kabuto'', which are samurai helmets. [[FridgeBrilliance That's why the Dome Fossil is called so]].
** Subverted by VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon, which featured a new stag beetle Pokémon named Vikavolt. It has no rhino beetle equivalent.

** There's also a variation of Type C in ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' where Pinsir is a global spawn from the start while Heracross became [[RegionalBonus one of the region-exclusives]] in Gen 2 update.

* Subverted in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Guts runs into a pair of bug-transforming warriors (who are considerably harder to beat than the previously-encountered rabble), but they consist of a stag beetle and a praying mantis (so closer to the [[{{VideoGame/Pokemon}} Pinsir / Scyther]] example).

Rarely, this phenomenon will be referenced obliquely. If [[DuoTropes two characters]] with [[{{Sidekick}} some]] [[TheRival sort]] [[BigBad of]] [[{{Foil}} relationship]] exist in your medium - and one has a single horn ([[FreudWasRight shut up]]) and the other has two, chances are this is why.

* ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'' has a prime example of a Type B in Metabee (the Kabuto) and Rokusho (the Kuwaga), who are Gold and Silver, respectively, and have extremely different personalities, as well as the nature of their Medals, though sometimes cross into being Type A as Rokusho will sometimes offer his assistance to Ikki and Metabee. Unusually, the franchise actually has a third "brother" - [[WaveMotionGun Arcbeetle]], based on the [[http://wallpapers111.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Hercules-Beetle-Wallpaper-7.jpg Hercules beetle,]] which is the least prominent but most powerful member of the lot.
