* Kanchome from ''Manga/ZatchBell'' can transform into replicas of other charecters, but they're far from perfect. One had a nose that would make Cyrano De Bergerac feel normal and another has a forehead as big as the torso. Luckily for him, the people he had to fool were idiots.

** Barney could actually be considered the oddball doppleganger to his counter-part: a renowned, straight laced, consummately professional, fertility specialist.

* Fake Crash from ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' looks like Crash aside from his comically enlarged eyebrows and teeth. He was originally based on an OffModel [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct bootleg]] Crash Bandicoot toy a member of Creator/NaughtyDog discovered and added to the Japanese version of ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot3Warped'' as an EasterEgg. All that is known about him is that he is [[TrueNeutral unallied]] with either Crash or Cortex and may be a [[SubvertedTrope failed]] attempt by Cortex to make an evil [[EvilKnockoff clone]] of Crash. In ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot2Ntranced'' he was actually part of the story, as the titular villain accidently kidnaps him thinking he is the real Crash and brainwashes him.
* In ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'', Kirby can encounter dopplegangers called Batamon that always appear beyond the level's boundaries. Though you can kill them with some ranged attacks, doing so serves no purpose and their presence is never truly explained.
* Wario and Waluigi though more so in their earlier appearances are still this to [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] and Luigi. Wario is an exaggeration of Mario's features, with a fat body, stubby legs and zigzagging mustache. Originally a villian in his first appearances, he has since become more of a greedy [[TheRival rival]]. Likewise Waluigi is an exaggeration of Luigi's features: extremely tall and lanky with a smooth mustache. He was an UnknownRival to Luigi in his [[VideoGame/MarioTennis first appearance]] and easily [[BerserkButton angered]] by this but nowadays plays the role of the [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} black sheep oddball]] who loves to cheat at sports.

* A very much politically incorrect version of this appears in ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'': one episode featured Clara's retarded cousin Bleh, with a beautiful body like hers but drooling and disheveled. Captain Hero bets with Spanky that he could bed her, and at the end of the episode he does. However, after that Bleh goes on a bus full of retarded versions of the other housemates (including Hero and Spanky), and it's shown that she made a bet with them that she could bed Hero!

* [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ditto]] can transform into other Pokémon and usually isn't distinguishable from the real thing. However, Duplica's first [[VoluntaryShapeshifter Ditto]] can't change its face. While this is treated as odd in the anime and non-existent in the main series video games, spin-offs and toys will use this trait.

trait. The second one she gets qualifies after a fashion: being a smaller Ditto (and thus labeled "Mini-Dit"), it can only turn into miniature versions of other Pokémon, although otherwise its transformations are perfect.

** "Double Dipper" is about Dipper using a photocopier that acts like a cloning machine on himself. Just about all of his copies are virtually the same as him, save for the hat symbol. But at one point, the copier gets a paper jam. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mN2V3TxJBA The result...]]
