*** Mokujin and Combot are interesting examples in that they don't have ANY moves of their own (At least AFAIK) and instead swap for a new one either every round or at least every battle. And the sets they use are those of every other character (minus Ogre/True Ogre in T3) so in a way, these two are moveset clones of every other fighter but only for one round or battle at a time.

** A very strange inversion with Wii Fit Trainer. One of her/his specials, "Sun Salutation", bares heavy similarities to Mega Man's Pharaoh Shot That he only has in his home series, not in smash.

*** This is the first game that applies this trope to the Mercenaries, Selena and Laslow. The former is faster, while the latter is stronger and more skilled.
*** Hoshido and Nohr each have their own mage duo: Hayato and Orochi from Hoshido, and Nyx and Odin from Nohr. Hayato's modifiers lean towards the standard SquishyWizard, with higher Speed, but less Defense and Resistance. Orochi has negative modifiers in both Speed and Defense, and has more Magic and Resistance than Tsukuyomi. Nyx's modifiers are similar to Tharja's GlassCannon modifiers, while Odin's are similar to Henry's JackOfAllStats, albeit a bit slower.

Luck. This is also reflected in the two's "canon" advanced classes (i.e. the advanced classes that don't give the characters a generic palette). Hero takes advantage of Laslow's statistics better having higher Strength, Skill, and Luck than the Bow Knight, while Selena fits perfectly in the Bow Knight class with it's better Speed and higher Resistance (and assuming that she hits her caps in all stats she can still use Levin Swords and Shining Bows close to as efficiently as physical weapons since the 28 Strength and 25 Magic cap differences aren't that far from each other).
*** Hoshido and Nohr each have their own mage duo: Hayato and Orochi from Hoshido, and Nyx and Odin from Nohr. Hayato's modifiers lean towards the standard SquishyWizard, a magic-oriented JackOfAllStats, with higher Speed, high Speed and above average Magic and Luck, but less Defense subpar Skill, Defense, and Resistance. Orochi has negative modifiers in both subpar Luck and poor Speed and Defense, but she is in a three-way tie for the best magic with Elise and has more Magic Nyx and Resistance than Tsukuyomi. possesses high Skill and Resistance. Nyx's modifiers are similar to Tharja's GlassCannon modifiers, modifiers with poor accuracy, while Odin's are similar to Henry's JackOfAllStats, albeit a bit slower.slower (his growths curiously lean more towards a physical fighter with only his Magic modifier not matching his growths).



*** Kaze and his brother Saizo play the Cain and Abel role despite not being Cavaliers, but Ninjas instead. Kaze is the FragileSpeedster of the pair, while Saizo is [[MagicKnight stronger in both Strength and Magic]], but [[MightyGlacier slower]]. Kagero combines elements of both, with having absurdly high Strength, a high Speed growth, and a negative Speed modifier.

*** Arthur and Charlotte, the fighters of Nohr. Arthur has above average Strength and Defense with one of the best Skill growths (tied with several others for the best Skill stat), but his Resistance is lacking and he has the absolute godforsaken Luck out of anyone in the entire game which by the way is also a rare case of StoryAndGameplayIntegration (only a captured generic Hero has the same growth rate in Luck as him). Charlotte on the other hand is tied for the best Strength modifier with the above mentioned Kagero, Effie, and Keaton, possesses a monstrous HP growth (surpassed only be a few capturable characters), and has high speed. However, her high statistics are offset by pitiful Defense and godawful Resistance.

*** This trope even extends to class sets as well rather than just stat modifiers and growth rates in starting classes. While some characters share the same class set with one differing class (e.g. Chrom's Lord v.s. Ricken's Mage, Gregor's Barbarian v.s. [[spoiler:Priam]]'s Fighter, etc.), a few others have the exact same class set with a possible differing starting class (MightyGlaicer Nowi v.s. JackOfAllStats Tiki, MightyGlacier Henry v.s. FragileSpeedster [[spoiler:Gangrel]], and SquishyWizard Lissa v.s. GlassCannon [[spoiler:Emmeryn]])

** Plusle and Minun, who are basically Pichu with plus signs and minus signs respectively for their ears and tails. They also share a type and have slightly differing base stats. They even act as the main partner Pokémon in one of the ''Ranger'' games!
** Latios and Latias, among a few other opposite gender twins, have similar stat distributions (but not the same - Latias has 20 more special defense and 10 more defense, while Latios has 20 more special attack and 10 more attack), and quite similar appearance.
** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Pokémon Black and White Versions]]'' have given us the legendary Kami trio: Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. They all look similar, have similar base stats (Tornadus and Thundurus LITERALLY have the same base stats - Landorus has 20 extra defense points, 10 less special attack points and 10 more attack points), and they all are at least part Flying-type. This changed in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', with the Kami trio gaining Therian formes that alter not only their appearances (Tornadus becomes a bird, Thunderus becomes a dragon, and Landorus becomes a tiger), but their stats as well.

** Charizard and Typhlosion. Exact same base stats, both fire type starters (of regions right next to each other and sharing a Pokémon League, no less) the only difference between the two is that Charizard is part flying type and slightly different movepools.

* Twin sisters Otane and Oume in ''VideoGame/PowerInstinct''. In the original game, Oume was simply a unique pallette swap for Otane. Later games (starting from ''Legends'') gave them seperate character slots, but their shared moves have remained unchanged throughout all games.
