** [[spoiler:It It is revealed as of "Lawless" that Satine [[spoiler:[[ActualPacifist Satine]] and Bo-Katan [[ProudWarriorRaceGal Bo-Katan]]]] are also this.this in the more general sense. Despite their differences, however, the latter was very much broken up [[spoiler:when the former was killed]].
** Savage Oppress and [[spoiler:Darth Maul]] are this as well. While they are both powerful and clever Sith warriors, the former, while far from stupid, is not much of a thinker, bluntly straightforward, honorable despite his darker nature, and content with staying in his brother's shadow. In contrast, [[spoiler:Maul]], while very much a fighter, is much more cunning, charismatic, manipulative, cruel, and ambitious. [[spoiler:Despite the potential for a betrayal on Maul's part, both brothers genuinely do care for one another, and Maul's reaction to Savage's death by Sidious's hand is both grief and anger.

** Tenzin has this relationship with his siblings Kya and Bumi. When they were children Tenzin was very serious while his siblings were rather rambunctious. In the present we've seen that Tenzin is [[TheStoic serious]] ([[NotSoStoic usually]]), [[BaldOfAwesome bald]], and monk-like while Bumi is "a wild man" in the armed forces of the United Republic with a head full of {{anime hair}}; meanwhile Kya is unmarried and traveled all over the world to [[LeavingYouToFindMyself "find herself"]] (which Tenzin saw as abandoning her family) while Tenzin settled down and had a large family. Tenzin and Kya are benders with a spiritual/healing, while Bumi is a BadAssNormal military man/walking disaster area.
*** Bumi is like his father in his childhood: goofy, off-the-wall, and carefree. Tenzin is like his father in adulthood: serious, burdened with purpose, and a bit of a stick in the mud (recall Aang's consternation at Toph still calling him "Twinkle-toes" even in their forties).
