* 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.

* 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 he made a bet with them that she could bed Hero!

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}} was originally this to Franchise/{{Superman}}. He's since been used as a full EvilKnockoff more often.

* Fake Crash from ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' looks like Crash aside from his comically enlarged eyebrows and teeth and even dopier voice and demeanor. He was originally based on an OffModel [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct bootleg]] Crash Bandicoot plush a member of ''NaughtyDog'' discovered and added to the Japanese version of ''CrashBandicoot3'' as an EasterEgg. Since then, he has continued to appear as an EasterEgg and a playable character in SpinOff titles. He has occasional story involvement but all that is known about him is that he is [[TrueNeutral unallied]] with either Crash or Cortex and may or may not be a [[SubvertedTrope failed]] attempt by Cortex to make a evil [[EvilKnockoff clone]] of Crash. ''Crash Bandicoot: N-tranced'' for the GBA actually had him play an important role in the story, as the titular villain accidently kidnaps him thinking he is the real Crash and brainwashes him.

It could be due to having a completely opposite personality (can be of the same alignment though doesn't have to be an EvilTwin). It could be due to exaggerating the original character's foibles. This character may even appear to be an OffModel version of the original.

At first, you'd think this character would be the long-lost twin of another character. But then you start to notice the differences. This character just seems off. It could be due to having a completely opposite personality (without being a full-on EvilTwin). It could be due to exaggerating the original character's foibles. This character may even appear to be an OffModel version of the original.

Regardless, this character is like a funhouse reflection of the original - distorted in possibly unimaginable ways, but still clearly patterned after the original.

Compare with EvilKnockoff and EvilTwin (which don't have to be oddball) and SendInTheClones (when multiple characters are introduced to cash in on the popularity of the original some of which can be OddballDoppelgangers). Can lead to OtherMeAnnoysMe. For the original German word, see {{Doppelganger}}.

* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' has Fake Crash, who usually cameos as an EasterEgg in SpinOff titles, his occasional story involvement interchanges from good to neutral alliance. He differs from the already oddball Crash due to his enlarged eyebrows and teeth and dopier voice and demeanor.
* Wario may have been a villian in his first appearance but has since become this to [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]. Likewise Waluigi was a much darker EvilTwin in his [[VideoGame/MarioTennis first appearance]] but nowadays plays the role of the [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} black sheep oddball]]. The Wario Bros are still somewhat antagonistic but are usually PlayedForLaughs and now only show up to play [[VideoGame/WarioWare minigames]] or [[GoKartingWithBowser try to cheat at sports.]]
