* 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.

** There's also Russian-produced Old Pepper's Crew, with almost copycat design of logo. [[http://old-peppers-crew.com It has a website (in Russian]], which strongly enforces similarities.

* 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.
