* In ''LightNovel/StrikeTheBlood'', [[KidFromTheFuture Reina]] has the same face as her mother Yukina with her father Kojou's eyes, allowing her to briefly fool the others into believing she is Yukina. The only way to really tell them apart is that Reina's hair is black and Yukina's is brown, and Reina has larger breasts.

** The Uchihas, especially those whose first names we know, seem to all look the same, to the point that they can only be differentiated by subtle features unique to each individual. Subtract the bags under Madara's eyes, or Izuna's distinct upper lip, or Itachi's tear troughs, and you get Sasuke.

** This is PlayedForLaughs with [[spoiler: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 (Chouji and Karui). 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 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 ''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 (however, neither does Usagi's younger brother).

** 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.

Ethan and Kris from ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' look like their Gen 2 mother, and Lyra looks like the remake redesign of her. May from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' looks like both the Hoenn mother and Professor Birch (the rivals father), and Brendan looks like Norman (the protagonists father).

* Intresting example from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' as when Guts and Casca's child first appears it [[FetusTerrible looks]] nothing like it's parents, but when the ''Moonlight Boy'' (who is suggested to be [[WhatCouldOfBeen what their child would've looked like).

*** Lastly a extremely subtle example with Android 16's eyes being the exact same (shape and colour) as Dr Gero/Android 20, which makes sense as 16 is modelled after Gero's deceased son.

* In ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'', the only visual differences between Youko and her mother Touko are the color and length of their hair (Youko's is light green and long, Touko is dark green and short); it's later shown that when Touko was in high school she had exactly the same hairstyle, [[spoiler:which causes Asahi some confusion when he's dragged 20 years into the past and meets teenage Touko]].
