* ''Manga/DragonBall'': In a filler episode, Mr. Popo animates a life size doll made in Goku's image for Goku to spar with. Goku gets totally curb stomped, because while their power and skills are equal, the doll's mind is totally clear, allowing it to focus completely on the battle and move and utilize its power more efficiently. Goku only gets one good hit in, and that's because the doll ran out of energy and shut down.



* In the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' anime, Metal Sonic is programmed to be an exact copy on regular Sonic, and it is even implied that they share a mental link (see the part when Sara is kicking Metal Sonic in the head, and regular Sonic is writhing in pain). The two are constantly seen running into each other, until finally, Sonic says this quote:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' parodied the trope by having [[TheDitz Stumpy]] play RockPaperScissors with... his reflection, in an actual mirror, who he thinks is a different person.

* During UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, the German commerce raider SMS ''Cap Trafalgar'' disguised itself as the British commerce raider HMS ''Carmania'' to deceive its prey. By sheer coincidence, the two vessels happened across one another and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Cap_Trafalgar#World_War_I_battle_with_Carmania engaged in a naval battle]] that ended with the ''Cap Trafalgar''[='=]s sinking.

A term that originates from {{fighting game}}s, a Mirror Match occurs when one character fights against themselves, usually as a result of two players choosing the same character (where, normally, each character on the roster is implicitly a unique individual). This can be a rather tricky experience as the two characters are, by definition, evenly matched, and victory will rest on which player is better at using the character's skills. Typically the two players will be [[ColorCodedMultiplayer distinguished by color]] with the second player as a PaletteSwap of the character's original design.

* In FanFic/{{Synesthesia}}, a ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' crossover with ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', the Reaper Psychedelic, a kitsune themed teleporter, fights Oni Lee.
* In the ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' fanfiction "Death is a Vacation", Taylor essentially gets DeathIsCheap as a power, instantly reviving after taking lethal damage (plus gaining in "charge" each time she dies, which she can enhance her strength with). In the [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11649385/15/Death-is-a-vacation chapter titled with this trope]] she fights Alabaster, an Empire cape whose body is restored to pristine condition every 4.63 seconds. Neither of them can take the other down, and they both express the wish to never fight each other again because of how annoying it was.
