* Craig's gang on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. Also the kids in Afghanistan in "Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants," which, like the main four kids, has a fat boy with a caustic attitude and a mostly-cloaked boy who's always getting killed.

* 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.

* In ''DragonQuestIV'', the King tells the hero that he's not needed as there's already a four-member party heading off to fight the BigBad. Later in the game your four-member party runs into that four-member party.

* 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)

Compare ThePsychoRangers, where the other squad are the evil versions. Those baddies are often recruited or created specifically to oppose our heroes, the standard SimilarSquad just happens to resemble the main cast. Often related or contributes to GeodesicCast if the new group sticks around.

* The foursome cast of ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' meet spoof groups of themselves. Usually these are impostors trying to cash in on their fame. In one instance the impostors get back together for a DayInTheLimelight to exact revenge by making Sanzo's party look bad. [[spoiler:In the end, they are discovered and are beaten up; by Sanzo's group, angry villagers, and [[FriendlyEnemy Kougaiji's own group]], who just happened to be passing through.]]

* In a ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' strip from ''DragonMagazine'', the party meets a group of Japanese-style adventurers who are pretty much the same as them except for [[CallingYourAttacks over-the-top attack names]]. Except for their henchman, who is exactly the same as Nodwick.
