** If the "Lemon of Troy" episode is anything to go on, Shelbyville is a full-on copy of Springfield, with counterparts to many of its major citizens and points of interest. The only difference is that they are ''slightly'' more deranged.

* Happens more similarly than usual in ''Series/{{Roswell}}'' when the four aliens meet a genetically identical team of hybrids that was [[SatisfiedStreetRat raised on the streets of the big city]]...except one of the four is mysteriously missing. The other team tells the Roswell kids that they're the real hybrids, and the Roswell kids are the disposable backups. Though the storyline plays up the benefits that Max and Izzy got from being adopted into comfortable suburbia, what's interesting is that Michael is the outsider and independent thinker on both teams.

* Near the end of the first season of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Ash befriends a rival Trainer named Ritchie, who is pretty much identical to Ash (He looks like a mixture between Ash and 'Red', the trainer from the original game). Ritchie's Pokemon team are a SimilarSquad to Ash's; he even uses a Pikachu (nicknamed "Sparky") as his main Mon.
** Jessie even calls them the "twerp twins".

** At about the same time, sister show ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' had three new characters in the ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'' finale. The first time they showed up they were random extras, but in the final scene Cam finds they've joined the ninja academy and are late for class, just like the Wind Rangers were at the beginning of the season. Cam's reaction? [[HereWeGoAgain "I don't think I can go through this again."]]

* The gang in ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'' meets a mirror-image group of survivors, played by similarly-[[TypeCasting typecast]] comic actors, as they head for the Winchester. The production team imagined them as [[HeroOfAnotherStory another film]] with [[TakeThatMe smarter characters played by more expensive actors]], and when Jessica Stevenson returns at the end it's obvious they've been involved in a much more dramatic story.
* In the sci-fi thriller ''Film/{{Coherence}}'', an eerie moment arises when the group of four bump into their counterparts from another reality in the street.

* [[RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead Rosencrantz and Guildenstern]] notice a similar duo in ''The Murder of Gonzago'' (as performed in ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''). It doesn't work out well for either duo.

* Little Gigant in ''InazumaEleven 3'', though it's subtle enough that it's easy to miss. Their starting members are [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of the original Raimon Eleven from the first game, while their bench members are Expies of Megane (the perpetual benchwarmer from the first game) plus four of the story characters introduced in the second game (namely Tachimukai, Kogure, Fubuki, and Tsunami)
