* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': The Overlord of Evil shares a lot of qualities with [[PosthumousCharacter the Master of the Dammed]], and not just in the case of names and looks. Both of them are powerful liches who have a world they either rule or desire to rule over, have an army of Mooks, and have another villain (or villains) under their command.

* When Jermaine Jackson quit the Jackson5 in the mid-'70s, the youngest brother Randy (who'd been touring with them as a percussionist) replaced him, having a similar voice (compare Jermaine's "Daddy's Home" with Randy's vocals in "Can You Feel It"). In 1983, Jermaine rejoined for the famed Motown TV special, and they released their final album in 1989, wherein the lineup consisted of both brothers as well as the two oldest Music/MichaelJackson had become the biggest solo artist in music, while middle brother Marlon released an unsuccessful solo album and appeared in a film produced by Troma).

* Though there were guitarists between them, [[Music/BlackLabelSociety Zakk Wylde]] appeared to be this for Randy Rhoads when he started playing with Music/{{Ozzy|Osbourne}}: both having long blonde hair, white Les Pauls, and great technical prowess. Wylde's distinct Bullseye guitar design came about as an attempt to visually distinguish himself from Rhoads.

* Lollipop was a suspiciously similar substitute to Krissy Vaine when the latter wasn't available for bookers who wanted to use Team Blondage.(there were still two members besides Vaine, but they hated each other and wouldn't have worked for the ''Film/MeanGirls'' vibe the team was going for)
* Wrestling/MuhammadHassan and Davari were suspiciously similar substitutes to Rodney Mack and Theodore Long.

* {{Discussed}} in Creator/DougWalker's "Disneycember" reviews of the Disney cheapquels--aside from "Ursula's crazy sister" in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea,'' he was actually really annoyed when he realized that [[Disney/TheLittleMermaidIII the prequel]]'s villain wasn't just Ursula, but a new character with the same backstory and similar appearance.

The vast majority of these replacements still take up the role of the previous character, such as a missing member of the FiveManBand, but how much they resemble their predecessor varies widely.

* The ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fanfic ''Fanfic/InShortSupply'' is set a few years after the show, so it wouldn't make sense for Zim and Dib to still have Ms. Bitters as a teacher. Instead, we get [[PunnyName Ms. Airy]], who is just as weird, cruel and depressing. There's also Ms. Fhtagn, an AmbiguouslyHuman guidance counselor who's similar but a bit more unique.
