* ''Videogame/{{PrinceofPersia1}}'' has a literal version: Early on in the game, the player is forced to leap through a mirror. Though the player passes through, a duplicate appears from the other side of the mirror and runs away. This doppelganger reappears at a few points throughout the game to grief the player, and then for a final showdown near the end, where the doppelganger will mimic the player's attacks and defenses, making it impossible to defeat him in combat. [[spoiler:The only way to beat him is to put away your sword. The doppelganger will follow suit, allowing you to walk into him and absorb him back into yourself]]

to:

* Broken Vessel from ''VideoGame/{{Hollow Knight}}'' is a zombie version of the player's character with a similar style as the Knight: very mobile, mostly attacks with their nail, and sometimes uses spells/special attacks as opportunities present themselves. Hornet and [[spoiler:the original Hollow Knight]] fight in the same way, which makes sense considering [[spoiler:all of them are Void beings created by the King to be strong fighters]].

* Inverted with the fight with Arikan in ''VideoGame/CopyKitty''. The player is mirroring ''him''. Even better, when Arikan decides to get serious and TurnsRed, the player ''copies that too'', and gets the same power enhancement.

** Version 2.00 of the game altered the mechanics of many boss fights such that they now drop unique powers that let Boki use attacks similar to the boss's, carrying the inversion further.

to:

* In ''VideoGame/{{TAGAP}}'', recurring boss Pedro has a few boss fights where he fights you on foot, using one of the same weapons as you. What makes him qualify for this trope is the final battle, where he not only has access to most of your weapons (and he'll make a point to always use the same as your current one, or the closest equivalent), but also to [[OneUp One-Ups]].

** In the Meta Knightmare minigame in ''Nightmare in Dreamland'', one of the bosses Meta Knight must face is ''[[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere another Meta Knight]]''. He fights almost exactly like the playable Meta Knight does, in addition of being able to block the player's attacks.
