* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Like her brothers Ned and Benjen, Lyanna has the classic Stark look of dark hair and eyes, and general austere features. When we see Lyanna's childhood in flashback in episode 6.2, she's introduced wearing a boy's clothing and skillfully riding a horse around the courtyard. She's a tomboy just like her niece Arya will be (though Arya was born years after she died). In the books themselves, Ned outright states that Arya greatly resembles Lyanna at her age. It is also clear from Bran's flashback in the Season 6 finale, that Jon Snow got most of his looks from her, especially his dark hair and eyes, which certainly made it easier for Ned to pass him off as his illegitmate son. The actress (Aisling Franciosi) also looks a fair bit like Creator/MaisieWilliams (Arya), who in the books is said to be Lyanna's spitting image.

** Also invoked and subverted with Barney and his brother James. Barney thinks that they look exactly alike, seemingly oblivious to the fact that James is black and, in fact, Barney's half brother. When James eventually is reunited with his father, Sam Gibbs, Barney doesn't seem to understand that he and James are ''half'' brothers, and briefly believes that he is African American (this is initially PlayedForLaughs, until Barney admits that he was just jealous of James for having a father when he doesn't). However, James and Barney have very similar personalities (being close friends while growing up) and tastes in clothing; the only major differences are that James is gay, monogamous, and happily married (and because of the last two, doesn't share Barney's sleazy love of having sex with women, or, in James's case, men).

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Luck of the Fryish", Fry believes that his brother Yancy, who had always acted out in jealousy of Fry when they were younger, had stolen Fry's lucky seven-leaf clover and his name after watching a documentary about "Philip's" (who looks exactly like Yancy) extremely blessed life. Fry learns the truth when he visits Philip's grave and reads the epitaph: "Here Lies Philip J. Fry, named for his uncle, to carry on his spirit." Yancy had named his son after his missing brother and gave him the clover.

** 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.]]

* ''Anime/YourName'': Mitsuha looks a lot like her deceased mother, especially once she becomes an adult. PlayedForDrama as the novelisation makes it clear that the resemblance did her grieving father no favours in the days following the loss.

* Many of the children in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rupert}}'', an AnimatedAdaptation of the British comic strip ''ComicStrip/RupertBear'', bear a strong resemblance to their parents. This is lampshaded in "Rupert in Timeland", where Rupert finds himself becoming an adult because of a time-travel mishap and mistakes his own reflection for his father.

** This is PlayedForLaughs with Chouchou in ''Manga/NarutoGaiden''. After hearing Sarada's worries with her parentage, Chouchou in turn starts doubting her own parentage. This is despite looking like a perfect mix of her mother and father ([[spoiler:Karui and Chouji]]). Her parents [[FunnyBackgroundEvent react accordingly]] and Sarada doesn't understand her problem either.

Sarada own doubts about her own parentage were more plausible since she has an overall more ordinary appearance than Chouchou, and purely by coincidence she bears a vague resemblance to [[spoiler:Karin]] as well as to her actual parents.[[note]]This resemblance being played up by the fact that she wears the same style of eyeglasses as Karin...which turns out to be because Karin is her godmother and sends glasses to Sakura for Sarada to wear.[[/note]]

* In ''Manga/LuckyStar'', [[OlderThanTheyLook Konata Izumi]] is basically a clone of her mother, with her father's skin tone and mole. It's obvious enough that the Hiiragi twins mistakes a picture of her parents together for Konata and her dad, and [[{{Lolicon}} that leads to some interesting questions]]. The same is true of all the mothers seen in the series. The Hiiragi twins' father gets more onscreen time than their mother, but since all four offspring in their family are daughters, they all resemble the mother.
