* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia]]'' uses this trope to show how its protagonists are two halves of a whole rather than in any kind of opposition. Lefty Alm and right-handed Celica have plenty of {{Foil}}-ish traits, from their [[SwordAndSorcerer fighting styles]] and [[MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication peacemaking methods]] to the hands that bear their BirthmarkOfDestiny, and overall, Alm is more roguish-heroic than the noble, pacifistic Celica. Then it's revealed that [[spoiler:Celica is the [[KingIncognito hidden princess]] of the protagonistic nation Zofia, and is TheChosenOne of its goddess, while Alm is [[IAmWho long-lost prince]] of Rigel, the very kingdom he was fighting against, and was himself chosen by Rigel's own, harsher god, ''and'' they're each the last living members of their royal bloodline.]] That said, neither is truly more heroic than the other, [[spoiler:and they're both destined to unite the two kingdoms anyway,]] but in a twist, when comes to the [[spoiler:BigBad, Celica is the one he possesses to kill Alm, and Alm is the one who is chosen by the only sword that can kill him]]. [[note]]This whole thing is averted in the original ''Gaiden'', where they're both right-handed and many of these details weren't present.[[/note]]

** Similarly, in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and ''CrisisCore'', Sephiroth is left-handed while both Cloud and Zack are right-handed. They are in many, many ways warped mirror images of each other.

* The Nancy Makuhari clones in ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' are mirrored, and in the climax of the OVA [[MirrorMatch face off against each other.]] It's not clear which Nancy survived the fight until [[spoiler:she kills the BigBad with a fist phased through the heart]]. She then [[IncrediblyLamePun off-handedly]] comments that she switched her gun to her non-dominant hand to throw everyone's attention. Inverts ASinisterClue, too; the "good" Nancy is TheSouthpaw.

* ''{{Vocaloid}}'' brings this out with Len and Rin Kagamine, opposite-gender mirrors of each other or HalfIdenticalTwins (depending on who you ask). Their genderswaps even look a lot similar to the twin. This trope is most evident in {{Fanon}} works involving these two, as their official characterizations are virtually nonexistent.

* Fate Testarossa from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is this on two levels: firstly, she is a right-handed DarkMagicalGirl to the left-handed title character. Secondly, she is [[spoiler:an [[ReplacementGoldfish imperfect clone of her creator's late left-handed daughter]]; in fact, Fate's handedness was one of the things that made Presea realize that she is not Alicia and reject her]].
** Subaru Nakajima and her left-handed older sister, Ginga, have each one of the two [[PowerFist Revolver Knuckles]] from their late mother, Quint. Additionally, a Revolver Knuckle can change its color to fit the color scheme of the holder, resulting that Subaru's right Revolver Knuckle is black while Ginga's left Revolver Knuckle is white.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ichigo and Uryuu are designed to be opposites of each other. Ichigo's battle uniform is Japanese clothing, black on white. Uryuu's clothing is European, white on black. Ichigo fights close up with a sword, Uryuu fights at a distance with archery. Ichigo is impulsive in battle and fights on instinct while Uryuu is a thinker and a strategist in battle. Ichigo's powers are Shinigami-dominant and Uryuu is a Quincy. The Quincies and Shinigami are mirror opposites of each other, even their souls are aligned as opposites, and the two sides have been at war for a thousand years. Kubo has stated in interviews that Uryuu is left-handed to complete the mirroring of Ichigo, and characters have observed in-universe that the pair are NotSoDifferent due to their mirrored personalities and abilities complementing each other perfectly.
