* Dirk of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' later grows to really hate his Auto-Responder (AR), an artificial intelligence cloned from his own brain and which has in the meantime developed in his own weird way. (Into a {{Troll}}, mostly.) Though unusually, what Dirk hates about him isn't that he's so different from him, but rather that AR is really an exaggerated version of himself, putting all of his personality flaws into perfect view.

* Alternate timelines and time travel are a big part of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', add that to a cast of traumatized teenagers forced to view their personalities again and again, and you have a recipe for fun:

** ...and then played 100% straight with ** Breezy, happy-go-lucky Jade surprisingly gets the worst out of the Beta kids when it comes to other selves. She absolutely loses it after being exposed to [[spoiler: Jadesprite]] upon Jadesprite's]] moping for only a few minutes. The fact that she acts very similarly to [[GrumpyBear Karkat]] annoys her prototyping.too, but it does cement the burgeoning friendship between her and Karkat



** Vriska is subject to this as well. She declares her alternate self, who [[spoiler: was killed by Terezi and has been hanging in the afterlife since]], to be a "FUCKING LOSER!!!!!!!!" in huge text. Vriska harshly berates her alternate self when she meets her, which drives her to tears, made worse by [[spoiler: Meenah breaking up with alterate Vriska]].

The bittersweet joke for the reader comes from how mentally balanced and nice alternate Vriska is, and how badly shafted she gets in favour of mainline {{jerkass}} Vriska.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Relativity}}'', [[spoiler: after a light speed travel accident Irina winds up living in an AlternateUniverse, and resents that she's being treated like a copy of her AlternateSelf, while her alternate self has to deal with watching her ex-wife treat Irina as her replacement.]]

** {{Subverted}} in "Double Dipper," when all of Dipper's clones act perfectly alike and get along really well. Even when the clones inevitably rise up against the real Dipper, they're surprisingly nice about it.

* In ''ComicBook/TheSandmanOverture'', the many different "aspects" of [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Dream]] are gathered together and immediately start arguing about whether they count as one person or many people. Two Dreams have this side conversation:
-->'''Dream 1:''' Am I always like this?
-->'''Dream 2:''' Like what?
-->'''Dream 1:''' Self-satisfied. Irritating. Self-possessed, and unwilling to concede center stage to anyone but myself.
-->'''Dream 2:''' I believe so, yes. In my experience.
-->'''Dream 1:''' Ah. Fascinating.

** [[WalkingSpoiler Spoilerrific]] example in "Oceans Unmoving". [[spoiler: Bun-bun's ArchEnemy, during his time as a SpacePirate in Timeless Space, is Captain Blacksoul -- a mysterious cloaked figure who wants ''something'' from him. It turns out that Blacksoul is ''also'' Bun-bun, controlling a flying robot disguised in a robe. This "future" Bun-bun has been tossed into Timeless Space a second time and due to amnesia can't remember how he got out the previous time, so he wants to follow himself out. He won't reveal who he is because he knows that he'd attack anyone approaching him and claiming to be him. In the end, he's so annoyed at his other self's persistence ''not'' to be followed around by Blacksoul that he gives him the concussion because of which he doesn't remember it all.]]

He won't reveal who he is because he knows that he'd attack anyone approaching him and claiming to be him. There's also a bit of a misunderstanding where past Bun-bun thinks Blacksoul wants to kill him to get his ship back when he really just wants to hang around to see what happens. In the end, he's so annoyed at his other self's persistence ''not'' to be followed around by Blacksoul that he gives him the concussion because of which he doesn't remember it all. Bun-bun wants to have everything his way and doesn't listen to explanations; two people like that with conflicting goals can't possibly get along.]]

** {{Inverted}} in "Torg Goes to Hell": Zoë and Riff accidentally rescue the wrong Torg from another dimension -- one who speaks only Portuguese. When their Torg returns, he tries to communicate with this alternative version of himself using a phrase book, but only comes up with sentences in the lines of (according to Babelfish) "For the Mondays, I am a shoe." Eventually, the "Portuguese" Torg swipes the phrasebook from his hands and tries himself:

** [[spoiler: Fry hating Lars in ''[[Recap/FuturamaM1BendersBigScore Bender's Big Score]]'' is a play of this trope. Lars is a time travel-clone of Fry except he is 10 years older and more mature as well as having a very different appearance as a result of work and a fire. Fry's antagonism seems to be mainly centered on him marrying Leela.]]
