In a Paperinik (DonaldDuck's (Donald's superhero/antihero alter ego) story Donald had Gyro invent a device that brings someone a hour forward in time, so Daisy would understand how ''he'' felt every time he got late to their dates due him having to arrest criminals as Paperinik. After finding out of the device (that he had used as a crime-fighting weapon as Paperinik) Daisy is initially enraged... outraged... But when Donald comes to apologize she ''thanks him for helping her understanding'', even saying it was very romantic.romantic.
** Donald and Daisy have independently come up with the same excuse to justify their apparent closeness to their respective superhero alter egos, namely that they're very good friends.
** In ''ComicBook/DoubleDuck'', Donald at one point disguised himself as the villain and lied in ambush until the right moment to unmask himself. Kay K, Donald's partner in the series, was really upset and took a while to get over it... But Daisy shrugged it off after a moment of anger because she does the same all the time when working for Scrooge's Private Intelligence Agency.

* ''Manga/DeathNote'' -- during ''Manga/DeathNote'':
** During
their tennis match, Light and L have almost identical internal monologues, without communicating. Of course the point of this is to illustrate that the two are NotSoDifferent.
** Light constantly pats himself on the back for choosing the morally uptight Teru Mikami to act on his behalf: anything Light can't do on his own or say aloud, Mikami does, and without even asking. Naturally, being the egotist he is, Light never considered the possibility that someone that acts ''so'' much like him could be a problem. [[spoiler:Oops.]]

* In the AmeliaPeabody mystery book ''The Deeds of the Disturber'', Emerson examines a threatening note and proclaims (in a very Sherlock Holmes-esque way) that he can tell from the handwriting it was written 'by a man of education with a pen that needed mending'. Amelia understandably writes this off as complete nonsense. Enter their son Ramses...who then proceeds to make exactly the same comment, much to Amelia's annoyance.

* In ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', the non-too-bright Trev wants to ask Juliet out, and he plans to do so by sending her a letter saying, "I think you're really fit. I really fancy you. How about a date? No hanky-panky, I promise." His more literate friend Nutt suggests that something more might be needed, and helpfully composes a long love poem for Trev to give to Juliet. However, Juliet - who isn't all too clever either - can't understand a word of Nutt's overly articulate poem, and so asks ''her'' more literate friend, Glenda, to explain it to her. Glenda reads the poem, thinks for a bit, and then translates it as, "he thinks you're really fit, he really fancies you, how about a date, no hanky-panky, he promises." (she later admits that it wasn't that hard to figure out - one way or another, that's what ''every'' love poem is trying to say)
