* 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.

*** This comes with the note that naming children after family who died in the Holocaust is very common; many children and grand-children (and great-grandchildren) of Holocaust survivors end up with [[TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard extremely long names]] as living memorials. There's a reason why it's been clinically shown that the descendants of Shoah survivors often have what's been called "PTSD by proxy".

* In ''Film/MeetTheParents'', Greg Focker wanted to be the one to find his girlfriend's family's cat that had been lost (and was going to be the ring barer in a wedding) to impress his girlfriend's father. He managed to find a cat that was the same color except without the tip orange of the tail, which Greg spray painted. Obviously, Greg was found out.

If the new "goldfish" is unlucky, they constantly live in the shadow of the dead person and feel they [[WellDoneSonGuy can't measure up]], which can also be the [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent secret disappointment]] of the MadScientist. If unwary visitors are unlucky, the LivingDollCollector will try to use them as parts or playmates for their replacement in TheDollEpisode. If this is combined with CloningByConversion, we are definitely heading into MadScientist territory.
