Kishimoto confirmed in a recent NYCC, that it was in fact not a red herring due to confirming that Naruto and Sakura's interactions were in fact based on his relationship with his wife. (The previous post also took liberties in assuming that Hinata held a parallel with Minato when there was no such thing shown, stated or implied)
** Naruto's father, Minato is shown thinking that Sakura reminds him of Naruto's mother Kushina, who earlier remarked that Naruto should marry a girl like herself. [[spoiler: Ultimately subverted, Naruto ends up doing the opposite, marrying ShyBlueHairedGirl Hinata instead. WordOfGod says that the comparisons between Sakura and Naruto's mother were a deliberate RedHerring. Though, from a certain perspective, Naruto ''did'' end up with a spouse similar to one of his parents -- Minato. Hinata and Minato are both similar in that they are quiet ninjas with hearts of gold who have loved their boisterous counterparts since childhood. Considering that Naruto is more or less a male version of his mother, that's where the actual GenerationXerox sets in]].

* Setsuna from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' is an inverted example. While it's not really romantic love, he's drawn to Princess Marina Ismail in part because of her close resemblance to his mother. Made somewhat disturbing by the fact that as a BrainwashedAndCrazy {{Child Soldier|s}}, Setsuna ''[[SelfMadeOrphan killed]]'' his mother and father.

* In ''Manga/SaintDragonGirlMiracle'' it's noted several times that Ren looks exactly like Anju's father Ryuga, both by Anju herself and her mother Momoka (and Ren's best friend Ryuuji when they finally get to meet her father). [[spoiler: Anju doesn't end up with Ren however, instead ending up with Ryuuji]]

* Implied in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' with Dorian and his ArrangedMarriage. He mentions that his parents hated each other, but went along with their own betrothal for the sake of appearances and preserving their positions. The one time Dorian mentions his betrothed, he heavily implied that the two of them were too much alike, which, combined with their IncompatibleOrientation, would have made them as miserable together as Dorian's parents were if Dorian hadn't left Tevinter.

** On the third, [[{{Metaphorgotten}} horrifying mutant hand]], [[NotSoDifferent Anakin was a gifted pilot who tended to get in trouble due to his brash, short-sighted decisions, relying on his skill to try getting himself out of situations]] his [[TooDumbToLive lack of sense]] [[NotSoDifferent had gotten himself into]]. ** That said, Anakin never had a father-daughter relationship with Leia. (It wasn't till the end of ''Film/ReturnOfThJedi'' that he realized the truth). And so he was never the primary male role model that she could base her opinions of other men off of. Bail, however, was.

* In chapter 32 of ''Manga/YourLieInApril'', Kousei begins to realize that his crush Kaori and his mother are quite similar; they're both obsessed with music, they're constantly pushing him into becoming a better pianist and are prone to drastic mood swings. This is lampshaded in episode 16 when [[spoiler: Kousei, Watari and Tsubaki visit Kaori in the hospital and Kaori yells at him for not practicing for the upcoming competition in such a way that in Kousei's eyes, the room begins to glitch and Kaori turns into his mother.]] They are both also sick with unnamed diseases [[spoiler:that are fatal; Kousei's mother ended up dying from her illness and, despite the glimmer of hope, Kaori doesn't survive hers either.]]

*** That said, Penny is nothing like Leonard's borderline-abusive ice-cold Freudian psychologist mother. ** Similarly, Howard thinks it's hot when his fiancée yells at him and sounds ''exactly'' like his mother. (But then, Howard's relationship with his mother is rather abnormal.)
