* European MickeyMouse comics do this in-Universe. Several comics are about WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} telling Mickey about his draft for his new novel (Goofy is an amateur writer in those comics), in which the main character [[AuthorAvatar always looks like Goofy]], his sidekick or occasional DecoyProtagonist always looks like Mickey, and if there is going to be a villain, he will look like {{WesternAnimation/Pete}}.

* Masuda Eiji is pretty fond of doing this, but it's particularly evident in ''Manga/ShuukanShounenHachi'': there are a few familiar faces, from ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' − an Akane lookalike, Miké who is basically a male Nagisa and Hachi who looks like a male Mikan − and from ''Manga/SakuraDiscord'' − Saru looks like Kousuke's baseball senpai and the teacher is pretty much the same as in that series. Plus the GenkiGirl who gets scolded by the teacher, who looks like a fusion between Youko and Nomiya.

* Creator/{{Boichi}} from ''Manga/SunKenRock'' has three main actors, Kitano Ken, Tae Seo and the same actress for every girl, this becomes particulary hilarious when you compare Ken to [[Manga/DrStone Senkuu]]. And even more hilarious when you compare Ken to [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash]] in the [[DistantFinale Lost Plant]] one-shot, whom Ken is an {{Expy}}. Check the other Boichi works and you'll see even more examples.

* In ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', Tohru's character design (minus the horns) is based off of Fuyu from Creator/CoolKyouShinsha's previous one-shot, ''Manga/{{Rabuta}}'', right down to their [[{{Meido}} choice of dress]]. This gets lampshaded in chapter 3 when she's shown using the exact same "Finish Quickly Pose" that Fuyu performed to speed up the washing machine. In turn, Elma's design was recycled as [[BigBrotherAttraction Sana]] in ''[=ChiChi=] [=ChiChi=]''.

* ''Skip Ltd.'' has Tao the dog. He's a dog with a black-and-white face, and he appears in various roles in Skip games--from the family pet in ''VideoGame/ChibiRobo'' to a lazy BigEater in ''CaptainRainbow.'' He even has a cameo in the Skip-developed UsefulNotes/WiiWare game ''VideoGame/SnowpackPark'' as the first mask you find! He was based on a real dog owned by the company founder, but the real dog, sadly, died in 2009. (He lives on in games, though.)

* Creator/TetsuyaNomura reuses designs occasionally. Sora (from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''), Lann (from ''VideoGame/WorldOfFinalFantasy'') and his version of Onion Knight (from ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'') follow a similar template (Sora himself is a variation of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s Cloud but InTheStyleOf WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse). Axel (from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'') is a variation on Reno from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', and Nomura has made it clear that he considers them equivalents of one another, although not literally the same character.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_(Company)]], a company that does {{NSFW}} {{Visual Novel}}s does this, as demonstrated in the page image.
* The earlier versions of Lightning from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' used the same face model that had been used for Cloud in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: Anime/AdventChildren'', but with slightly softer lines, more arched eyebrows and a rounder eye shape (to say nothing of the lipgloss and mascara). While this is intentional (Lightning was intended to resemble a gender-flipped Cloud), both characters [[DivergentCharacterEvolution diverge from this template]] in their later appearances, and the ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'' Lightning and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIIRemake'' Cloud look somewhat more different.

* Some of the demons's designs in ''WebComic/MyBestFriendMarneao'' were previously used in ''Sea Snail Studio's'' other work, ''Salvatore''. According to ''[[WordOfGod El Autor]]'' in his twitter, they are actors, similar to [[Creator/OsamuTezuka Tezuka's]] famous star system
