* This is played up with Mario and Luigi even more in the ''SuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' cartoons. In the [=SMB3=] [[TheBrute Bully]] and either [[MadScientist Kooky]] or [[MotorMouth Big Mouth]] seem to fit the trope.

* HotBlooded FieryRedhead Apollo and DefrostingIceQueen EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette Artemis in ''{{Cyborg 009}}''. * Yoh and Minatsuki in ''DeadmanWonderland'' are an interesting case: both are liars, cowards, and opportunists, but Yoh ''may'' be fundamentally a caring guy while his sister is a {{Yandere}}.

* Twin examples: Risa and Riku in ''DNAngel''; Vash and Knives in ''{{Trigun}}''; Abel and Cain in ''TrinityBlood''; Metatron and Sandalphon in ''AngelSanctuary''; [[spoiler:Chrno and Aion/Ion]] in ''ChronoCrusade''; Suboshi and Amiboshi in ''FushigiYuugi''. Also as is often the case for the twin archetype, which some scholars view as a sub-category of the hermaphrodite archetype (seriously), one twin is gendered more 'feminine' (Risa, Vash, Abel, [[spoiler:Chrno]], arguably Metatron) and the other more 'masculine' (Riku, Knives, Cain, [[spoiler:Aion]], Sandalphon). (This has nothing to do with sexual orientation!) ** This trope is even lampshaded by the twins in ''DNAngel'': -->'''Riku:''' We have absolutely ''nothing'' in common! -->'''Risa:''' Nothing at all! * Fran and Veronica Madaraki of ''FrankenFran'' were outright [[ArtificialHuman made to be this]]. Fran was made to preserve life (which can lead to [[FateWorseThanDeath unpleasant results]]); Veronica was made to end it (which she prefers to do swiftly and painlessly, though often gratuitously). Fran tries to put Veronica more on her side of the scale, but so far, no dice.

* Yuki and Ayame in ''FruitsBasket''. Ayame is the AlwaysCamp AloofBigBrother, while Yuki is the PrincelyYoungMan with an InstantFanclub. Yuki doesn't find Ayame very bearable, while Ayame insists he's showing support for his younger brother. He really doesn't get it.

* In ''HajimeNoIppo'', there's Kumi Mashiba, Ippo's main love-interest and then there's her big brother, Ryo 'The Executioner' Mashiba, an angry and brooding boxer who eagerly uses intimidation-tactics and fouls to beat down his opponents, and just generally comes across as a borderline psychopath. About the only person who's NOT scared of him is Kumi, who has been known to slap him to the floor when he got out of hand. [[spoiler: There's also the fact that Mashiba practically raised Kumi ever since they were orphaned in an accident, so only she and one of his bosses know how hard Mashiba has worked to take care of her. The scene where this softer side of his' was shown was quite the TearJerker in the anime.]]

* The Nitori siblings of ''WanderingSon'' couldn't be more different. Big Sister Maho is outgoing and pushy. Little Sister Shuuichi is timid and docile. This actually gets {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the pair's father, who relates to Shuu a story of their grandmother betting Maho would be a boy and Shuu a girl before they were born. Given the family's recent discovery of Shuuichi's [[{{Transsexual}} issues]], Nitori Sr. wonders if Grandma was really so wrong about them.

* In ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur V]]'', despite (or perhaps because of) their ''very'' different childhoods, Pyrrha and Patroklos are perfect {{Foil}}s to each other. She's an ex-slave MartialPacifist who craves approval; he's a mercenary aristocrat who often picks fights, even with his allies. Their (initial) inability to reconcile these differences drives the game's plot and is frequently lampshaded. -->'''Viola:''' The sun and moon cannot rise together.\\ '''Ivy:''' ''(to Pyrrha)'' You should do something about that rude brother of yours.

* Early on ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' offered Amber, the blonde, instinctual, outgoing ex-porn star, and her younger sister, the brunette, uptight, initially {{friendless|Background}}, virginal {{nerd}} Ruby. But for ''real'' ying-yang contrast, it later introduced the tall, skinny, anatomically simply female, psychologically gender-fluid, perpetually angry, emo[=/=]goth Angel, and her sister, the short, plump, medically intersex, psychologically solidly female, placid, fluffy-girly Ramona.

One might wonder if there's a theme here. Incidentally, Ruby and Amber have problems dealing with each other, whereas Angel and Ramona are quite solidly affectionate.
