** All of Sanji's brothers and sisters share his bizarre curly eyebrows, although Sanji's eyebrows are a mirror image of those of his siblings. Yonji in particular looks so much like Sanji that the Straw Hats mistook him for their crew member at first.
** PlayedForLaughs with Capone Bege's son, Capone Gang Petz. Although Petz is just a baby, he's the spitting image of his father, complete with hat, ''PermaStubble, and a cigar''.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', Prince Ryoma of Hoshido is basically a younger "clone" of his late father King Sumeragi.
*** According to [[spoiler: Elise's nanny Cassita]], the daughter of the deceased Queen [[spoiler: Arete]] of Nohr looks almost exactly like her. [[spoiler: The daughter turns out to be Azura, and in the ''Revelation'' path Arete appears...]]

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', quite a few characters have this going on:
***
Prince Ryoma of Hoshido is basically a younger "clone" of his late father King Sumeragi.Sumeragi, sans beard and slightly lighter hair.
*** According to [[spoiler: Elise's nanny Cassita]], the daughter of the deceased Queen [[spoiler: Arete]] of Nohr looks almost exactly like her. [[spoiler: The daughter turns out to be Azura, and in the ''Revelation'' path Arete appears...]]appears.]]
*** The Avatar ([[CharacterCustomization by default]]) looks very similar to their mother, Mikoto, only with white hair. If one keeps the same face structure and changes their hair to black and gives them the same BeautyMark the resemblance is even more obvious.
*** And with the children: Azura's son Shigure looks very much like her, just with short hair; Soleil and Caeldori are basically {{Gender Flip}}s of their fathers, Laslow and Subaki, respectively, right down to the personality. Also, should Caeldori be Selena's daughter, the resemblance between the two is uncanny [[spoiler:as well as Caeldori being an IdenticalGranddaughter to Cordelia]]; Siegbert looks like a teenage version of his father, Xander, especially if he has blond hair; Forrest takes his father Leo's {{Bishonen}} traits UpToEleven; and Kiragi looks like a younger version of Takumi, just without the SamuraiPonytail.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'': Pidge's family all look very similar. This comes to be very important when [[spoiler: it's revealed that Pidge is actually Katie Holts, the family youngest daughter, and that she could take her brother's appearance simply by getting her hair cut and wearing glasses.]]

** The highly standardised character designs in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' make this common. Twilight Sparkle's mother is a pallet swap of her daughter. In a slightly less exceptional case, Pumpkin Cake has the exact same colors as her father Carrot Cake, while Rainbow Dash's mane and tail are practically identical to her father (as seen in a flashback in "Games Ponies Play"), a trait never seen on any canon pony bar these two. "Magic Duel" shows that, with a little dye and mane-styling, Sweetie Belle looks almost exactly like her big sister Rarity back when she was Sweetie's age as they have he same coat colour and are both unicorns.

The Flim-Flam brothers are basically identical except for their marks and Flam's moustache.
***This can make the exceptions stick out like a sore thumb. For instance, Pinkie's sisters all look very similar to one another, but Pinkie herself nothing like ''any'' of her immediate family members, not even her [[PolarOppositeTwins twin sister]].

** In FireEmblemAwakening, [[spoiler: Princess Lucina basically looks like a genderflipped, long-haired version of her father Chrom, no matter who her mother is.]] Similarly, [[spoiler: out of Chrom's other prospect children, Olivia's son Inigo and Sully's daughter Kjelle will physically resemble Chrom the most.]] Whereas [[spoiler: Miriel's son Laurent also looks a LOT like his mother, save for the hair color.]]

* Yui and Ui Hirasawa from ''Manga/KOn'' aren't twins (Yui is older) but for some reason are very similar in appearance. This has helped at least twice in the series: the first time when Ui attempts a TwinSwitch with her sick sister and the second time when Yui basically uses Ui as a living 3D mirror to test out looks for her yearbook photo.

The only person that can tell them apart is Yui's teacher, because they have different cup sizes.



* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Usagi and Chibi-Usa are very similar (except for the hair colors), and the few glimpses we get of parents have them looking nearly identical to their daughters. In the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] Minako and Usagi's ''entire families'' are [[{{Expy}} copies of each other]], which wouldn't be so jarring if the 'newer' plot didn't force Usagi to resemble her mother ''in a past life'', meaning she doesn't look like her modern family at all (To be fair, neither does Usagi's younger brother).

* Sephiroth takes strongly after his "mother", Jenova, in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Both have platinum hair and giant, scythe-shaped forelocks. Somewhat inverted, as Sephiroth was mistaken about being descended from the Cetra. Not only is Jenova his genetic donor, not his actual mother (Lucretia was the surrogate), Jenova is a mimetic creature who took on the shape of the Cetra to destroy them.

Added DiffLines:

** This was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally intended]] with Aerith and Sephiroth. They have aesthetic similarities (such as their hairstyles) because at one point in development they were siblings. This was later changed to them being exes and then finally to what they are in the final game. Their designs stayed the same even when their relationship changed.
