* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Iroh begins treating Zuko like a son after his own child, Lu Ten, dies in battle. He seems to love Zuko for who he is, however, and doesn't project Lu Ten onto him. Since Zuko is also DESPERATELY in need of a father figure, it all works out. Usually.

* Part of the reason Jason Todd went nuts after his resurrection was because he thought Franchise/{{Batman}} just replaced him without question. The other part was that [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Jason's killer]] was still alive. In many ways, Jason was just a replacement for Dick, which only added to the resentment he felt. Some of the different versions of his origin story went so far as to say he was a natural redhead who dyed his hair black like Dick's -- or was ''made'' to dye his hair by Batman. Suddenly having a redheaded Robin when Bruce Wayne had just taken on a redheaded ward would've been suspicious, to say the least. Black hair minimized the switch.
