** In "The Ice Warriors", freedom-loving renegade scientist Penley and his younger, blunter Scottish sidekick Storr click instantly with the Doctor and Jamie.
** In "The Dominators" the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe encounter two-hearted thrill-seeking ManChild explorer Cully, his protective but a little bit thick young male student and his young female student with perfect fact recall.
** "Carnival of Monsters" opens with the arrival of Vorg, an eccentrically-dressed bowtie-wearing older gentleman who possesses a small, seemingly innocuous machine that is bigger on the inside than out and can manipulate time, and his glamorous young blonde travelling companion Shirna, who complains about Vorg's choice of destination and isn't sure he knows how to use his machine. Unlike the Doctor and Jo, though, they [[EvilCounterpart are more interested in getting loads of money with their machine]] than in seeing the wonders of the universe with it. (The whole story contains elements of self-parody of ''Doctor Who'''s MonsterOfTheWeek nature in this manner.)

** 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had an episode where Joe, regaining the use of his legs, [[TookALevelInJerkass becomes a jerk]] and dumps his old friends in favor of more active friends, which includes two white guys and a black guy; to Cleveland's dismay, the black guy is also named for a city.

* 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."]]
