Added DiffLines:

** The first game has Shadow Sora, a Heartless copy of Sora. This copy also can use DoppelgangerSpin and DoppelgangerAttack to mix things up.
** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' has the Riku Replica (but only during ''Reverse/Rebirth'' in which you play as the real Riku).
** In a minor example, ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' has Roxas fight a shadowy version of himself.


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts02BirthBySleepAFragmentaryPassage'' gives us Phantom Aqua, who fights exactly like the real Aqua (albeit with TeleportSpam, DoppelgangerSpin, and DoppelgangerAttack), complete with a DarkReprise of Aqua's {{Leitmotif}}. Bonus points for Phantom Aqua being fought inside the Magic Mirror, making this a literal example.

* In the early ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' games in the campaign mode, you would usually fight a mirror copy of your selected character using the same exact moves. Sheng Tsun has his own moves, but he can also transform into a random character and potentially transform into your character.

Added DiffLines:

* Dark Hype, in ''VideoGame/HypeTheTimeQuest'', is Hype's evil mirror image fought in the Lost City to obtain the Jewel of Virtue. He can use all the techniques Hype can get in game, even the magics Hype cannot possibly have obtained at that point of the game without cheats. He is considered by many to be one of the hardest bosses in the game.

* ''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]].
