* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', the main characters greatly resemble their ancestors from the JustBeforeTheEnd prologue. Among their family members, Reynir's older siblings are a deliberate aversion due to being born from sperm and egg donor program meant to enable non-immune parents to have immune children (Reynir's own theory is that he wasn't exactly planned for).

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', a member of any given noble family is immediately identifiable by various distinct features. The Targaryens all have violet eyes and silver hair, the Lannisters are all blond(e) with GreenEyes, the Tullys all have auburn hair, the Baratheons all have thick black hair, the Manderlys all resemble walruses, the Mormonts and the Umbers all look like bears, the Florents have huge ears, I could go on. This becomes a massive plot point early on: [[spoiler:Whenever a Baratheon has a child with a Lannister, the child always inherits the Baratheon black hair. The Baratheon king's bastards all have his black hair. But the children that the king's Lannister wife has given birth to? All blonde. [[{{Twincest}} Guess why]].]]
** Straighter examples exist with specific characters - there is an astounding number of the younger generation who resemble older ones. Sansa is said to be the spitting image of her mother Catelyn, her sister Arya really resembles her aunt Lyanna, Joffrey is stated to look a lot like his uncle[[spoiler:/father]] Jaime, his little sister Myrcella is also said to look like their mother Cersei; Robert's little brother Renly and bastard son Gendry both strongly resemble him; Jon Snow and Arya Stark are both said to have the "classic Stark look" like their father Ned, etc. One of the reasons Catelyn resented Jon was because he looked more like Ned's son than any of the sons she bore him since Robb, Bran and Rickon inherited more of her features.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', Dexter and Dee Dee are an interesting variant where they each visibly inherited different traits from their parents. Dee Dee has blonde hair like their father while Dexter inherited his mother's red hair and his father's [[ExpressiveMask Expressive]] NerdGlasses.
** One scene took things a step further and showed where they each inherited their ''personalities'' from. The mother was shown tirelessly whipping up recipes in the kitchen with meticulous scientific precision before the father burst into the scene and started wrecking things like an idiot.
** Dexter's grandfather is another, less frequently seen character, who is nearly identical to Dexter in everyway, except being old and pruning. In fact Dexter's grandfather is exactly the same as old Dexter from previous episodes.
*** Lampshaded: While Dexter was turned old in one episode, everyone kept calling and mistaking him for "grandpa" for obvious reasons.
* Steve Barkin's father Franklin from ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' turns out to have the exact same look and personality as his son.
* Billy from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' looks an awful lot like his dad -- big nose, beady black eyes and all.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'', Arnold's cousin Janet basically looks like [[DistaffCounterpart a female version of him]]. She has the same hair style, also wears glasses and sports a feminine version of his [[LimitedWardrobe regular outfit]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** When Milhouse's parents were introduced, they both looked very much like him, meaning that they also rather improbably [[LookAlikeLovers looked very much like each other]]. This has led to some pretty uncomfortable questions from fans. ([[LampshadeHanging And Bart, in one episode]]). Considering that the "Lemon of Troy" episode revealed that Mrs. Van Houten is from Shelbyville, and that the Springfield/Shelbyville rivalry came about because Shelbyvillains wanted to [[KissingCousins marry their cousins]]... yeah. It sinks into UncannyFamilyResemblance territory with the introduction of at least one of Milhouse's grandfathers and his two grandmothers in different episodes, who of course look all the same. By the way, one of the grannies is Italian and the other (most likely) Dutch. Milhouse himself lampshades his parents' resemblance in a later episode where he casually admits that he thinks they might be [[BrotherSisterIncest brother and sister]].
** The episode "The Blue and the Gray" reveals Lenny and Carl date each other's sisters every Valentine's Day. Each pair of siblings, of course, look alike.
** Grandma Bouvier is basically an aged-up version of Marge, right down (up?) to the improbably high beehive.
** Abe Simpson looked very similar to his son Homer in his youth, though he lost his hair later in life. At one point Bart used a vacuum on Abe's face and was startled to see that Abe looked exactly like Homer without his wrinkles.
** Both of Homer's half-siblings look very much like him and Abe. Herb is a slightly older version of what Homer would look like if he had never lost his hair or gained so much weight, while their half-sister Abby is what Homer would look like if he got rid of the five-o-clock shadow and dressed in drag.
** One episode showed the extended Simpson family, all the men looked like variations on Homer and all the women looked like older versions of Lisa.
** Some future episodes show Bart and Lisa's future children, Bart's two sons look like shorter versions of his ten-year old self, and Lisa's daughter looks like a teenaged Lisa with a lock of blue hair (Milhouse is her father).
** In other future episodes, Bart is shown developing Homer's gut, hair loss and five o'clock shadow, and Maggie as a pre-adolescent is identical to Lisa.
** In "Lisa the Beauty Queen" before settling on a variation of her usual hairstyle, Lisa tries out, among other hairstyles, Marge's signature BeehiveHairdo. [[http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/File:Lisa_the_Beauty_Queen_57.JPG The resemblance to her own mother is uncanny.]]

* Superman as an adult in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' looks ''exactly'' like his father Jor-El did when Krypton was destroyed. When an aged Superman appeared in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', they even gave Superman Jor-El's voice actor to take it from simple resemblance to carbon copy.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' has two of these: first, Terry's younger brother Matt looks almost identical to him, something the show's creators actually joke about on the DVD commentary (the lack of resemblance to either of their ''parents'' is best not delved into here, considering the later explanation is supposedly something of an AscendedFanon {{Retcon}}). Second, when BigBad Derek Powers' adult son appears at the end of the first season, the facial resemblance is strong enough it's pretty clear that they're family even before dialogue actually states it.



* ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'': Aerrow looks exactly like a young Lightning Strike, but with a different hairstyle. That is pretty much ''the only difference''.
** They also have different eye colors. Aerrow's are green, Lightning Strike's are brown. But yeah, that's pretty much it.

* ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'': Aerrow In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'', the family finds a picture of Bob when he was Gene's age, and they resemble each other so much that Louise figures she could make Gene into a mini-Bob by giving him a bald spot, a mustache, and arm hair. It's pretty uncanny, much to Bob's annoyance.
* On ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'', Penny bears a strong resemblance to her mom (shown especially in "School of Destruction" where we see her mom with her hair down), Reggie resembles his dad, and a blink-and-you-miss-it shot in "Howdy Rudy" suggests that Michelle resembles her mom.

Kimber has a bright red hair tone neither her sister nor parents have, Video and Clash are cousins who look nothing alike (which is realistic but in fiction cousins tend to have passing resemblances), and Raya is the only member of her family with ''pink'' hair.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', the main characters greatly resemble their ancestors from the JustBeforeTheEnd prologue. Among their family members, Reynir's older siblings are a deliberate aversion due to being born from sperm and egg donor program meant to enable non-immune parents to have immune children (Reynir's own theory is that he wasn't exactly planned for).

* While not very closely resembling her half-sisters at all, Urd of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is a dead-ringer for her own mother, Hild. If it weren't for Hild's slight height advantage, different hairstyle, and slightly larger bust they could pretty easily be mistaken for one another.
* In ''Manga/AngelDensetsu'', Kitano looks a ''lot'' like his father. Which is [[FaceOfAThug very sad for him]].



* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', TheHero Eren Yeager looks almost identical to his mother Carla, the only actual differences being their eye colors and Carla's MotherlySidePlait. [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130830153217/shingekinokyojin/images/4/48/Eren.png Just]] [[http://www.anime-planet.com/images/characters/carla_jaeger_23870.jpg look]].
* The way the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification nations]] in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' are related can be a little confusing, but England and Sealand are most certainly related. Sealand looks like a younger, more [[CheerfulChild hyper]] England.
** If Germany were to grow his hair long, he'd be identical to his ancestor, Germania. His older brother, Prussia, also shares a certain resemblance with them, though his eye and hair color sets him apart.
*** Muss up Germany's hair and he ends up looking just like Prussia in the webcomics. Similarly, slick Prussia's hair back and he looks like a slightly older Germany with white hair and reddish eyes.
*** Depending on whether or not you believe that Germany is related to the Holy Roman Empire, [[spoiler:or ''is'' the Holy Roman Empire]], you can't deny that HRE looks like a younger Germany, and that Germany bears a resemblance to the sketch of teenage HRE when his hair isn't slicked back. Meanwhile, in North America, Canada and the U.S. look identical to the point that poor Canada is often mistaken for his more noticeable brother. {{Fanon}} has it that they're twins. South Italy looks to be a darker, meaner, and slightly taller version of North Italy, and is otherwise completely the same. Several of England's relatives [[WordOfGod apparently share]] [[BigOlEyebrows his eyebrows]].
*** Don't forget that both Italies strongly resemble their grandfather Ancient Rome. Both inherited the curls, Veneziano got his smile and brown eyes, and Romano got the olive complexion and dark hair.
** In the Slavic side, Russia and his older sister Ukraine look pretty similar: they're both tall, light-haired, [[IAmBigBoned a little pudgy]] and with similar features except for Russia's nose. If we add their {{genderflip}}ped versions, the similarity is even stronger: male!Ukraine is basically [[FragileFlower a more insecure]] Russia with yellower hair, while female!Russia is a long-haired and more smily Ukraine. As for Belarus, her coloring matches Russia's ([[WhiteHairBlackHeart platinum blond hair, pale skin,]] blue or purple eyes), she's also tall with a rounded face (though more angular features), [[http://blog-imgs-24-origin.fc2.com/h/i/m/himaruya/siryo3.jpg she has a bit of a Cleopatra Nose herself]], shares Russia's ability to make [[SlasherSmile downright frightening]] expressions, and under that dress she's [[BoobsOfSteel quite curvy]], though skinnier than Ukraine.
** Subverted with Switzerland and Liechtenstein. They're not exactly siblings (more like adoptive sibs, though it's easy to infer they're at least distantly related due to being Germanic), but they look almost exactly alike save for their eyes. And even more when Liech cuts off her braids.
** Also subverted with Cyprus and Greece. He ''does'' look like a younger and slimmer Greece... but lacks his trademark IdiotHair.
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'': The manga, doesn't show us any of the girls' parents (unless you count [[MindScrew Chiyo's dad]]) but in the show, we get a brief glimpse of Kaorin's mother, who is basically a slightly taller Kaorin in an apron. We're also told that Tomo and her father had the same hairstyle at some point.
* This is the case for the Laforets in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', where you can probably pick out one of them from a sea of LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters on the basis that they're all nearly identical to their father, Huey.
* In ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', when Akito Takagi and Moritaka Mashiro look through a yearbook that Moritaka's uncle Nobuhiro "Taro Kawaguchi" Mashiro had, they realize that Miho Azuki's mother, Miyuki Haruno, looks quite a bit like Miho did when she was in high school.
* Ciel from ''Manga/BlackButler'' already looks almost exactly like his late father, Earl Vincent Phantomhive, and will definitely be a carbon copy of him once he's older. He ''was'' shown as an adult in the 'Ciel in Wonderland 2' OVA and the resemblance was striking. And considering Sebastian has taken the appearance of Earl Phantomhive, except for the eyes, this could raise some interesting questions when he's older.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Byakuya is the spitting image of his deceased father, Soujun. The only difference between them is the way they wear their hair.
** The Oomaeda siblings all look like {{Gonk}}-style clones of their parents, male and female both. Oomaeda's youngest sister Mareyo is the only one who looks different, being stunningly beautiful and catching the eye of all the male shinigami. Her family, however, think she's the ugly duckling.
** Ryuuken and Uryuu could be mistaken for brothers instead of father and son, especially since Ryuuken looks younger than his forty-something years. Uryuu does get his black hair and some of his more pensive facial expressions from his MissingMom, [[TheLostLenore Kanae]], but otherwise he's his father's son from head to toe. [[http://herskyofdiamonds.tumblr.com/post/47855534196/mcgrundie-young-master-is-thinking-that This post shows the three together.]]
* ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' has an unusual case considering Kato's CastOfSnowflakes art style. Most of the time you can merely tell that they are related by similar features, but in the case of the [[spoiler: Kamiki family]] all them look so alike they might as well be ''clones''. Considering they are apparently descendant from [[spoiler: a Byakko]] and have spent generations focused on a single ritual and specific abilities, this might be justified.
* ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'':
** Marika has a strong resemblance to her mother, made even more obvious when she grows out her hair.
** Ryousuke looked like a short haired version of his deceased older ''sister'' in elementary. [[spoiler: It goes the other way around too as apparently Yui was a {{tomboy}} with BoyishShortHair until she became a model.]] Marika even mistook her for Ryousuke in family photos.
* When returning to her home in Osaka in ''[[Anime/BurnUp Burn Up Excess]]'', Maya Jingu visits the memorial shrine to her mother--whose photograph looks exactly like her, albeit in a gangster kimono with tulip yakuza tattoos. It helps that the late Jingu was probably not much older than Maya was, and is grinning gunslinger in the portrait.
* Misaka Mikoto of ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' looks much like her mother.
* Akira Maeda from ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool'' is "renowned throughout Japan for his startling resemblance to his mother", as it's put in the manga. His friends keep confusing the two of them. They were also played by the same actor in the [[TheMovie live-action adaptation]].
* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', as one of the LongRunners, has MANY cases of this:
** Yuusaku Kudo and his son Shinichi look almost exactly the same (Yuusaku has glasses and a funky mustache, Shinichi has a cowlick and a pointy rat-tail). The physical similarities '''went off the ceiling''' when the fans saw [[http://www.detectiveconanworld.com/wiki/File:Young_Yusaku.jpg Yusaku at age 20]]: if his face was rounder and his eyes were bigger, he'd be an exact ''clone'' of Shinichi.
** The same goes for Kaitou KID and Shinichi; even though nobody knows whether [[IdenticalStranger or not]] they're related.
** Actually, a ''huge'' [[ChekhovsGun plot point]] in a case of the fifth season. [[spoiler:The detective Yusuke Sakata, whose father died in strange circumstances 20 years ago, confronts a SerialKiller. Much to his shock, the SerialKiller starts referring to him as "Instructor Inaba" and babbling in ''horror'' about how "the prank went too far". That obviously, referred to the death of Sakata's dad Inaba, which he and other five people caused through a DeadlyPrank. Yusuke, who had become a policeman to investigate what went on with his father, ''became a SerialKiller himself'', catching and murdering the other culprits while keeping the SerialKiller alive and hidden while planning [[RedHerring to kill him last and frame him for all the deaths.]] [[LoveMakesYouEvil All to punish those who robbed him of his dad when he was a little boy]]]]. And on the other hand, [[spoiler:this was also Yusuke's perdition: at some point Heiji and Conan saw a picture that included all of the victims plus other two persons whom Yusuke had still not killed... as well as Inaba himself. This lets them notice how physically alike Yusuke and Inaba were, identifying Yusuke as the killer.]]
** In a {{filler}} case from the second season, a young woman who looked a lot like her CorruptCorporateExecutive of a mother was among the suspects [[SelfmadeOrphan of the lady's murder]]. [[spoiler: She ''didn't'' do it, but she ''did'' try to use their resemblance to her advantage: she had found her mom's corpse and, panicking over the possibility of being blamed, she put on the lady's bed clothes and a facial treatment mask to impersonate the dead woman and throw suspicions off herself.]]
* The BabiesEverAfter scene at the end of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' played this unsettlingly straight, right down to the last child. Between that and the conspicuous absence from the reunion of any spouses who aren't former Chosen Children, it's a popular snark among fans dissatisfied with the ending to suggest that they all just cloned themselves.



* 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.

to:

* Yui and Ui Hirasawa from ''Manga/KOn'' aren't twins (Yui is older) Not only does [[http://images.wikia.com/duelmasters/images/e/e3/Shobu.jpg Shobu]] of ''Anime/DuelMasters'' look almost exactly [[http://images.wikia.com/duelmasters/images/c/c9/Shori.jpg the same as his]] DisappearedDad (AnimationAnatomyAging the only real difference), but for some reason are very similar in appearance. This has helped at least twice in the series: two even dress 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 same.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Lucy
looks for almost exactly like her yearbook photo. The only person mother Layla, seen during the Phantom Lord Arc. [[spoiler: Recent chapters reveal that can tell them apart is Yui's teacher, because they have her distant ancestor, Anna, also looks a lot like them, except for a different cup sizes.hairstyle.]]
* Louise from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'', compared to her mother Karin [[http://i.imgur.com/6mjHU.jpg during her younger days...]] (That's from the ''Karin Side Stories''.)
* Yukari from ''Manga/FamilyCompo'' resembles her dead sister quite a lot. When she asks her nephew to move in with her family, he's captivated by their resemblance.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'':
** Akito and Ren look almost exactly the same -- except for Ren's long hair, and um... assets.
** When we get a short glimpse of Shigure's parents he looks exactly like his mother.
** Whether Yuki wants to admit it or not, he does look like his elder brother Ayame, the only differences being their eye and hair colors... and [[LargeHam Ayame's bombastic attitude.]]
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** Ed and Al (pre-transmutation, anyway) both look a lot like Hohenheim, especially Ed. Alphonse looks a bit like their mother too, except with blonde hair (which [[AdaptationDyeJob is brown]] in the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]], which makes them look even closer) and yellow eyes. And a penis.
** Armstrong family males (and some of the women). They all have the Armstrong eyelashes, though!
** In the finale family photo, [[spoiler:[[BabiesEverAfter Ed's and Winry's unnamed son]] looks uncannily like Daddy, down to the shit-eating grin. Baby Daughter looks to take after Winry, as she has Winry's eye and hair colors.]]
** Envy in his true form in the 2003 anime version looks a lot like [[spoiler:Hohenheim and his half-brothers]].
* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', interestingly enough, Sousuke Sagara is shown to look almost exactly like his beautiful MissingMom in his backstory. No wonder EvenTheGuysWantHim.
* In ''Manga/GakuenBabysitters'', Ryuuichi and Usaida, lampshade Kamitani's strong resemblance to his mother, who shares the same eyes and hairstyle as him.
* In ''Manga/GameXRush'', [[spoiler:Memori is an almost exact younger male clone of his mother]], to the point where Ken mistakes the latter for the former.
* The protagonists of ''Manga/GingaNagareboshiGin'' and ''Anime/GingaDensetsuWeed'' look near identical, but it's {{justified}} in that they're dogs.
* Victorique of ''LightNovel/{{Gosick}}'' is so identical to her mother that just wearing a ''different hat'' is enough to throw people.



* Likewise, Fuyuki's mother Aki in ''Manga/SgtFrog'' looks [[{{Fanservice}} mostly]] like him, and was {{lampshaded}} in a FountainOfYouth episode with predictable results. (The fiery-tempered Natsumi, meanwhile, gets stuck with [[HairColors red hair]]).
* While not very closely resembling her half-sisters at all, Urd of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is a dead-ringer for her own mother, Hild. If it weren't for Hild's slight height advantage, different hairstyle, and slightly larger bust they could pretty easily be mistaken for one another.
* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Usagi and Chibi-Usa are very similar (except for the hair colors; episode 31 of ''[=SuperS=]'' pokes fun at this when the two of them switch ages), 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).
** The parody manga ''Parallel Sailor Moon'' introduces daughters of the four Guardian Senshi, who look exactly like their mothers and have the same names.
* Ichigo of ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' looks like her mother, Sakura. She's basically just Ichigo's head on a [[AbsurdlyYouthfulMother sliiiiiiiiiiightly more mature body]].
* In ''Anime/PleaseTeacher'', Mizuho and her mother look very very similar. [[spoiler:so much so that Kei confuses the two of them on more than one occasion with embarassing consequences.]]

to:

* Likewise, Fuyuki's mother Aki in ''Manga/SgtFrog'' Pretty much the same case with Joey Jones from ''Manga/{{Heroman}}'', except unlike with Mizuho's case, Joey's looks [[{{Fanservice}} mostly]] like him, and was aren't {{lampshaded}} at all.
* [[WholesomeCrossdresser Kei]]
in ''Manga/HououGakuenMisoragumi'' looks almost like a FountainOfYouth episode younger version of her father.
* Hajime from ''Manga/ICantUnderstandWhatMyHusbandIsSaying'' is basically his father
with predictable results. (The fiery-tempered Natsumi, meanwhile, gets stuck with [[HairColors red hair]]).

* ''Franchise/KagerouProject'':
** Mary is almost identical to her mother Shion, aside from slightly different colouration (pink eyes instead of red, white-blonde hair instead of silver-white) and her BlindingBangs. Her facial structure (in the anime at least) is
nearly identical to their daughters. In the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] Minako and Usagi's ''entire families'' are [[{{Expy}} copies that of each other]], her grandmother, Azami. All three also share a HereditaryHairstyle, which wouldn't be so jarring if the 'newer' plot didn't force Usagi is used 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).

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** [[GenderBender Girl-type]] Ranma, color of hair and eyes aside, is almost identical to her mother. Unfortunately for him, Nabiki decides to point this out at the most inopportune moment, specifically when he's trying to pass himself off as Akane's cousin in order to avoid fulfilling a rather nasty [[{{Seppuku}} ritual suicide]] pact.
** Cologne, Shampoo's great-grandmother, is shown to have looked (and sounded) quite similar to Shampoo in her youth. Causes a bit of FridgeHorror when you think about what that means for Shampoo's looks once she hits cologne's age...
** On a sibling level, Tatewaki and Kodachi Kuno strongly resemble each other - the narrow, haughty eyes; longer noses; and more pointed faces, as well as similarly fluffy hair (only with Kodachi having her side ponytail). Give one of them the other's hair color, and they'd practically be twins.



* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** Ed and Al (pre-transmutation, anyway) both look a lot like Hohenheim, especially Ed.

* The ''PrettyCure'' franchise usually features parents who do not resemble their children a lot. While the Cures have obviously AnimeHair, most of their parents look pretty normal, but not hot at all. However, later series feature parents who have also their children's odd hair colors. ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' is the only series who features ''two'' youthful mothers who actually resemble their daughters a lot. Yayoi's mother Chiharu and Miyuki's mother Ikuyo, the latter just look like her daughter to the extreme (in the franchise, of course). Later, [[Anime/DokiDokiPrecure Rikka's mother Ryoko]] looks also like the adult version of her.

And Mana's hair looks nearly identical to her ''father's''.
** A very odd case in ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'': Hibiki's father Dan has red hair, while Hibiki herself got her hair color from her mother Maria, but Dan's hair resembles [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Rin Natsuki's]] hair a lot who is from a completely different continuity.

Much to his shock, the SerialKiller starts referring to him as "Instructor Inaba" and babbling in ''horror'' about how "the prank went too far". That obviously, referred to the death of Sakata's dad Inaba, which he and other five people caused through a DeadlyPrank. Yusuke, who had become a policeman to investigate what went on with his father, ''became a SerialKiller himself'', catching and murdering the other culprits while keeping the SerialKiller alive and hidden while planning [[RedHerring to kill him last and frame him for all the deaths.]] [[LoveMakesYouEvil All to punish those who robbed him of his dad when he was a little boy]]]]. And on the other hand, [[spoiler:this was also Yusuke's perdition: at some point Heiji and Conan saw a picture that included all of the victims plus other two persons whom Yusuke had still not killed... as well as Inaba himself. This lets them notice how physically alike Yusuke and Inaba were, identifying Yusuke as the killer.]]
** In a {{filler}} case from the second season, a young woman who looked a lot like her CorruptCorporateExecutive of a mother was among the suspects [[SelfmadeOrphan of the lady's murder]]. [[spoiler: She ''didn't'' do it, but she ''did'' try to use their resemblance to her advantage: she had found her mom's corpse and, panicking over the possibility of being blamed, she put on the lady's bed clothes and a facial treatment mask to impersonate the dead woman and throw suspicions off herself.]]
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** The [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals Nurse Joys and Officer Jennys]] are revealed to be identical even when young -- ''identical to the adult specimens, that is''.
** Dawn resembles a younger version of her mother.
** There's a heavy resemblance between Brock, his siblings, and their father. None take much after their mother.



* The way the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification nations]] in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' are related can be a little confusing, but England and Sealand are most certainly related. Sealand looks like a younger, more [[CheerfulChild hyper]] England.
** If Germany were to grow his hair long, he'd be identical to his ancestor, Germania. His older brother, Prussia, also shares a certain resemblance with them, though his eye and hair color sets him apart.
*** Muss up Germany's hair and he ends up looking just like Prussia in the webcomics. Similarly, slick Prussia's hair back and he looks like a slightly older Germany with white hair and reddish eyes.
*** Depending on whether or not you believe that Germany is related to the Holy Roman Empire, [[spoiler:or ''is'' the Holy Roman Empire]], you can't deny that HRE looks like a younger Germany, and that Germany bears a resemblance to the sketch of teenage HRE when his hair isn't slicked back. Meanwhile, in North America, Canada and the U.S. look identical to the point that poor Canada is often mistaken for his more noticeable brother. {{Fanon}} has it that they're twins. South Italy looks to be a darker, meaner, and slightly taller version of North Italy, and is otherwise completely the same. Several of England's relatives [[WordOfGod apparently share]] [[BigOlEyebrows his eyebrows]].
*** Don't forget that both Italies strongly resemble their grandfather Ancient Rome. Both inherited the curls, Veneziano got his smile and brown eyes, and Romano got the olive complexion and dark hair.
** In the Slavic side, Russia and his older sister Ukraine look pretty similar: they're both tall, light-haired, [[IAmBigBoned a little pudgy]] and with similar features except for Russia's nose. If we add their {{genderflip}}ped versions, the similarity is even stronger: male!Ukraine is basically [[FragileFlower a more insecure]] Russia with yellower hair, while female!Russia is a long-haired and more smily Ukraine. As for Belarus, her coloring matches Russia's ([[WhiteHairBlackHeart platinum blond hair, pale skin,]] blue or purple eyes), she's also tall with a rounded face (though more angular features), [[http://blog-imgs-24-origin.fc2.com/h/i/m/himaruya/siryo3.jpg she has a bit of a Cleopatra Nose herself]], shares Russia's ability to make [[SlasherSmile downright frightening]] expressions, and under that dress she's [[BoobsOfSteel quite curvy]], though skinnier than Ukraine.
** Subverted with Switzerland and Liechtenstein. They're not exactly siblings (more like adoptive sibs, though it's easy to infer they're at least distantly related due to being Germanic), but they look almost exactly alike save for their eyes. And even more when Liech cuts off her braids.
** Also subverted with Cyprus and Greece. He ''does'' look like a younger and slimmer Greece... but lacks his trademark IdiotHair.
* This is the case for the Laforets in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', where you can probably pick out one of them from a sea of LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters on the basis that they're all nearly identical to their father, Huey.

* In ''Manga/AngelDensetsu'', Kitano looks a ''lot'' like his father. Which is [[FaceOfAThug very sad for him]].
* Ciel from ''Manga/BlackButler'' already looks almost exactly like his late father, Earl Vincent Phantomhive, and will definitely be a carbon copy of him once he's older. He ''was'' shown as an adult in the 'Ciel in Wonderland 2' OVA and the resemblance was striking. And considering Sebastian has taken the appearance of Earl Phantomhive, except for the eyes, this could raise some interesting questions when he's older.
* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', interestingly enough, Sousuke Sagara is shown to look almost exactly like his beautiful MissingMom in his backstory. No wonder EvenTheGuysWantHim.
* ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'':
** Kaoru Kaidou looks almost identical to both his younger brother Hazue and his father Shibuki, with the two of them essentially being older and younger versions of him. It's actually kind of creepy... [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and fucking hilarious.]] [[spoiler:The notes to Shin Tenipuri make the resemblance between Kaoru and Hazue even stronger since Hazue plays tennis too ''and'' will apply to Seigaku Junior High once he's old enough, meaning that he now actively ''aims'' to be more like his older brother.]]
** Kunimitsu Tezuka looks a lot like both his father Kuniharu and his grandfather Kunikazu in the manga. Much more the latter than the first, though, as Kuniharu is a NiceGuy but both Grandpa and grandson are TheStoic.
** Though more subtle, Ryoma definitely shares his father's eyes and intensity.
* It's revealed about 4/5ths of the way through ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' that Alto Saotome is pretty much a clone of his MissingMom Miyo, HimeCut and all, in boy-drag. [[DudeLooksLikeALady That explains a LOT]].



* Pretty much the same case with Joey Jones from ''Manga/{{Heroman}}'', except unlike with Mizuho's case, Joey's looks aren't {{lampshaded}} at all.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'':
** Akito and Ren look almost exactly the same -- except for Ren's long hair, and um... assets.
** When we get a short glimpse of Shigure's parents he looks exactly like his mother.
** Whether Yuki wants to admit it or not, he does look like his elder brother Ayame, the only differences being their eye and hair colors... and [[LargeHam Ayame's bombastic attitude.]]
* In ''Manga/GameXRush'', [[spoiler:Memori is an almost exact younger male clone of his mother]], to the point where Ken mistakes the latter for the former.

* Pretty In ''Anime/PleaseTeacher'', Mizuho and her mother look very very similar. [[spoiler:so much so that Kei confuses the same case two of them on more than one occasion with Joey Jones from ''Manga/{{Heroman}}'', except unlike with Mizuho's case, Joey's looks aren't {{lampshaded}} at all.

** The [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals Nurse Joys and Officer Jennys]] are revealed to be identical even when young -- ''identical to the adult specimens, that is''.
** Dawn resembles a
younger male clone version of her mother.
** There's a heavy resemblance between Brock,
his mother]], to siblings, and their father. None take much after their mother.
* The ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' franchise usually features parents who do not resemble their children a lot. While
the point where Ken mistakes Cures have obviously AnimeHair, most of their parents look pretty normal, but not hot at all. However, later series feature parents who have also their children's odd hair colors. ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' is the only series who features ''two'' youthful mothers who actually resemble their daughters a lot. Yayoi's mother Chiharu and Miyuki's mother Ikuyo, the latter just look like her daughter to the extreme (in the franchise, of course). Later, [[Anime/DokiDokiPrecure Rikka's mother Ryoko]] looks also like the adult version of her.
** Said above, other mothers who share the same hair colors with their daughters ''do'' resemble them, but usually not that much. You can argue how much mothers and daughters look alike or not.
** [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Rin, Karen]], [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Love, Inori]], [[Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure Tsubomi]], [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Hibiki]], [[Anime/DokiDokiPrecure Rikka]] and the complete ''[[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Smile! Team]]'' got their hair colors from their mothers, [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Honoka]], [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Urara]], [[Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure Erika]], [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Kanade]] and [[Anime/DokiDokiPrecure Mana]] from their fathers. And Mana's hair looks nearly identical to her ''father's''.
** A very odd case in ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'': Hibiki's father Dan has red hair, while Hibiki herself got her hair color from her mother Maria, but Dan's hair resembles [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Rin Natsuki's]] hair a lot who is from a completely different continuity.
* ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'':
** Kaoru Kaidou looks almost identical to both his younger brother Hazue and his father Shibuki, with the two of them essentially being older and younger versions of him. It's actually kind of creepy... [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and fucking hilarious.]] [[spoiler:The notes to Shin Tenipuri make the resemblance between Kaoru and Hazue even stronger since Hazue plays tennis too ''and'' will apply to Seigaku Junior High once he's old enough, meaning that he now actively ''aims'' to be more like his older brother.]]

** Though more subtle, Ryoma definitely shares his father's eyes and intensity.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** [[GenderBender Girl-type]] Ranma, color of hair and eyes aside, is almost identical to her mother. Unfortunately for him, Nabiki decides to point this out at the most inopportune moment, specifically when he's trying to pass himself off as Akane's cousin in order to avoid fulfilling a rather nasty [[{{Seppuku}} ritual suicide]] pact.
** Cologne, Shampoo's great-grandmother, is shown to have looked (and sounded) quite similar to Shampoo in her youth. Causes a bit of FridgeHorror when you think about what that means for Shampoo's looks once she hits cologne's age...
** On a sibling level, Tatewaki and Kodachi Kuno strongly resemble each other - the narrow, haughty eyes; longer noses; and more pointed faces, as well as similarly fluffy hair (only with Kodachi having her side ponytail). Give one of them the other's hair color, and they'd practically be twins.
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'':
** Kurumu, Mizore and Yukari look very similar to their mothers. The manga shows that Tsukune got his face from his mother. The most bluntly example is Outer Moka who looks exactly like her mother Akasha Bloodriver. [[spoiler:Justified, Outer Moka is a personality created by the rosario which is invented by Akasha to protect Inner Moka.]] And thanks to ArtEvolution, Inner Moka looks now very similar to her outer personality ''and'' her mother.
** Moka's older half-sister looks very similar to her mother Gyokuro, just having longer and curled hair and not having an evil expression in her face. However, this trope is inverted with Kokoa, Gyokuro's second biological daughter. Kokoa has red hair, light skin and (for some reason) GreenEyes, she looks nothing like her mother or her father who has black hair.
* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Usagi and Chibi-Usa are very similar (except
for the former.hair colors; episode 31 of ''[=SuperS=]'' pokes fun at this when the two of them switch ages), 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).
** The parody manga ''Parallel Sailor Moon'' introduces daughters of the four Guardian Senshi, who look exactly like their mothers and have the same names.



* The BabiesEverAfter scene at the end of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' played this unsettlingly straight, right down to the last child. Between that and the conspicuous absence from the reunion of any spouses who aren't former Chosen Children, it's a popular snark among fans dissatisfied with the ending to suggest that they all just cloned themselves.
* ''Manga/NabariNoOu'': Miharu and his mother, Asahi. To the point that most non-fans simply assume that the two on this [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nabari13_7896.png volume cover]] are Miharu and his own reflection.
* In ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', when Akito Takagi and Moritaka Mashiro look through a yearbook that Moritaka's uncle Nobuhiro "Taro Kawaguchi" Mashiro had, they realize that Miho Azuki's mother, Miyuki Haruno, looks quite a bit like Miho did when she was in high school.
* Mireille Bouquet of ''Anime/{{Noir}}'' looks almost exactly like her deceased mother, Odette, as is mistaken for her when she visits her old home by an old family retainer. They even [[SignificantDoubleCasting share the same voice actress in both English and Japanese]], and the resemblance winds up being a plot point much later.
* In the ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'' anime's reunion episode with Lilo, it's revealed that the series [[spoiler:was a TimeSkip all along]] and [[spoiler:Lilo]] had an identical-looking daughter [[spoiler:in the time that's passed since she and Stitch went their separate ways.]]

** Ryuuken and Uryuu could be mistaken for brothers instead of father and son, especially since Ryuuken looks younger than his forty-something years. Uryuu does get his black hair and some of his more pensive facial expressions from his MissingMom, [[TheLostLenore Kanae]], but otherwise he's his father's son from head to toe.

* When returning to her home in Osaka in ''[[Anime/BurnUp Burn Up Excess]]'', Maya Jingu visits the memorial shrine to her mother--whose photograph looks exactly like her, albeit in a gangster kimono with tulip yakuza tattoos.

Her facial structure (in the anime at least) is nearly identical to that of her grandmother, Azami. All three also share a HereditaryHairstyle, which is used to [[GorgeousGorgon identify them as Medusae]].

* Hajime from ''Manga/ICantUnderstandWhatMyHusbandIsSaying'' is basically his father with glasses and without a mustache. And the only difference between Kaoru and her late mother is hair color.
* ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'':
** Marika has a strong resemblance to her mother, made even more obvious when she grows out her hair.
** Ryousuke looked like a short haired version of his deceased older ''sister'' in elementary. [[spoiler: It goes the other way around too as apparently Yui was a {{tomboy}} with BoyishShortHair until she became a model.]] Marika even mistook her for Ryousuke in family photos.
* Hana from ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'' resembles her DisappearedDad to an uncanny point. It's even more noticeable when she cut her pigtails off.



* Yumi and her younger brother Yuuki from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' look like HalfIdenticalTwins and are the same age but are from separate births.
* ''Manga/MyLoveStory'':
** Downplayed with Suna and Ai. They're obviously siblings and have similar facial features however Suna's hair is a near blond shade of red while Ai's is a much deeper red.
** Takeo looks like a mix of both his parents. He gets most of his looks from his fathers side but has some aspects of his mother, especially her muscularity.

* Likewise, Fuyuki's mother Aki in ''KeroroGunsou'' looks [[{{Fanservice}} mostly]] like him, and was {{lampshaded}} in a FountainOfYouth episode with predictable results. (The fiery-tempered Natsumi, meanwhile, gets stuck with [[HairColors red hair]]).
