* Discussed in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' when Tarquin claims that [[spoiler:after he kills Roy Greenhilt and Durkon Thundershield, Elan will have a TerribleIntervieweesMontage and end up hiring Rob Redblade and Murkon Lightninghammer.]] This references the tendency in ''Dungeon & Dragons'' campaigns where a lost party member will be quickly replaced by another character with the same class and level (to maintain party balance), and because they're played by the same person, often the same personality too.

* Acknowledged and actually a big part of the plot in ''Machinima''/RedVsBlue, where the original Church ([[spoiler:actually the AI Alpha]]) dies in season 6 and is replaced by another Church in season 7 ([[spoiler:actually the AI Epsilon, who's made up of Alpha's memories]]). The two look and act almost exactly the same.

Added DiffLines:

* In the first two series of ''Radio/TheMenFromTheMinistry'', the "One" of General Assistance Department was Roland Hamilton-Jones, played by Wilfrid Hyde-White. After he left "One" became Deryck Guyler's [[TheDanza Deryck]] Lennox-Brown for the rest of the series. The two were practically the exact same characters with different names, and the show never acknowledged the change.
** The change also happened in the Finnish version of the show, but only much later (in that most Lennox-Brown episodes have been translated with Hammilton-Jones in his place) and only due due [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim the actor Kauko Helovirta's death in 1997.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Mr. Pibb was Coca-Cola's version of Dr. Pepper, mostly sold in places where Coke bottlers don't bottle Dr. Pepper. Then its formula was changed and it became "Pibb Extra". Nonetheless, many generic versions of Dr. Pepper exist, usually with "Dr." somewhere in the name (Pibb was originally "Dr. Pibb", but Dr. Pepper sued Coca-Cola for that.)

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 4th Edition, a Dark Sun epic destiny has the main character become a hero template, and killing off the lead character would simply bring in a mechanically-identical replacement with the same powers and abilities.

* Actually noted InUniverse in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' with the Ventrue and their Roman Era counterpart, the lost clan of the Julii. Literally the ''only'' difference between the two is in their Clan Weakness, and even then they're just different flavors of the same "particularly detached from Humanity" motif[[note]]Julii are more likely to lose Humanity, Ventrue are more likely to go crazy when they lose Humanity[[/note]]. It's commonly accepted by vampires that the Ventrue are either a mutated form of the Julii, or a Julii Bloodline that eventually outbred the original Clan.

* In ''{{FanFic/Vapors}}'' this is invoked by the Third Hokage when he replaces [[spoiler: the late Sakura Haruno]] with the newly-discovered [[spoiler: Karin Uzumaki]] partly out of convenience, and partly as an attempt to help them cope with what happened.
