* In ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', Marty [=McFly=] marries Jennifer Parker who is quiet, soft-spoken, and easygoing just like his father George [=McFly=]. WordOfGod used this trope to explain why Marty's mother Lorraine and his ''paternal'' great-great-grandmother Maggie [=McFly=] are both played by Lea Thompson, saying that all [=McFly=] men are genetically predisposed to be attracted to women who look like Lea Thompson.

* Pushed to the extreme in the French movie ''Itineraire d'un enfant gâté'': Not only does the daughter want someone like her dad and ends up having a son from a man her father's age, then marrying a guy trained by her dad to act like him, but it's implied that it's also the case of the son.

** An episode is dedicated to this trope when Barney's brother expresses a dislike of his girlfriend Nora because she, in his opinion, reminds him too much of their mother. The episode later shows that Marshall and Lily remind each other of one another's fathers.

Eventually Barney notices the similarities as well, but is okay with it because, as he reasons, his mom is awesome so if his girlfriend is the tiniest bit like her, he's a lucky guy. This helps everyone else get over it.

* Meta-example in ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons:'' WordOfGod says that they used the same character model for both [[spoiler:Lewis' birth mother and adult!Franny]]. This is especially obvious if you notice their [[ImpossibleHourglassFigure ridiculously tiny waists]].

This is especially obvious if you notice their [[ImpossibleHourglassFigure ridiculously tiny waists]]. On a less meta note, [[spoiler:Lewis first comes to see adult!Franny as a mother figure before discovering that she's actually his future wife. The somewhat-icky implications are glossed over when he meets young!Franny in his own timeline and expresses more amused recognition than attraction.]]

* This is very much TruthInTelevision, as psychologists have discovered. The idea is that when you are a child you grow up in a safe, loving environment that sets a template for the future. You look for people similar to your parents because they remind you of the safety you had as a child. [[FridgeBrilliance Perfectly logical]], and only minimally {{squick}}y.
** Well, think about it in an evolutionary sense - your very existence is proof that your parents are a successful template to follow!
** Mixed with FridgeHorror when you realize that this often applies to people who were raised by AbusiveParents. Contrary to common depictions of AbusiveParents who are not nice, many abusive parents have a nice side. Their children will love them for their nice qualities, but most likely won't be able to filter the abusive aspects out of their template of a perfect mate. So these people are made vulnerable to DomesticAbuse later on in life.
*** Less than 1/5 of people abused as children abuse their kids. However, ending up with someone who would abuse your kids as a romantic partner is depressingly common for people abused as children.

* ''Series/ModernFamily'' has Haley become interested in the goofy, bumbling, sweetheart Real Estate agent Andy, who gets along swimmingly with her dad, Phil, his mentor. Seeing them interact together makes Haley come to the realization that they are shockingly similar, and it puts her off of the whole thing for a little while.
**In the episode "Someone to Watch Over Lily", Claire worries that her son Luke (who is worryingly like Phil) is incapable of functioning on his own. Phil tells her not to worry, because Luke will find a girl like Claire to balance him out. Basically {{invoke|dTrope}}ing this trope.
-->'''Phil''': You know why he's gonna be ok? Because somewhere out there is a worried little girl out there who's making lists and labeling bins, and he's gonna find her.
*''Series/NewGirl'' has Jess's parents visit, and their dynamic and behavior greatly mirrors Nick and Jess's. Jess's father is grumpy, stubborn, and refuses to take left turns to the point where he'll take three rights to avoid them; a quirk of Nick's. Jess's mother is quirky, perky, and a school teacher.
