* 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/LightningReturns'' Lightning and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIIRemake'' Cloud look somewhat more different.

* Kenji Eno did this with the video games ''VideoGame/{{D}}'', ''VideoGame/EnemyZero'', and ''D2''. All of the protagonists are named Laura and have the same design, but are different characters with different surnames.

* ''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 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.
