** They had to fight two more sets of Psycho Rangers before that. First in a season one episode it was a trio of Warlock brothers, though one was [[HeelFaceTurn saved by becoming a priest]]. Then also in the sixth season, it was a trio of three evil witch sisters - the Stillmans. They stole the sisters' powers and rewrote reality to steal their identities too. [[BlondesAreEvil Oh and they were blonde]].

** ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' has the Shadow Rangers, no relation to the ''Turbo'' ones. Onikage made them from the Rangers' shadows; any damage done to them was felt by the real ones. ''Gaoranger'' had these and also the Copy Rangers created by a MonsterOfTheWeek made from a copy machine.

* CHYKN in ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}''. Formerly the team that did the job WITCH does now, Season 2 Big Bad and {{Fallen Hero}}ine Nerissa used them to go up against the current team. Of course, for her to pull that off, she ended up having to [[BrainwashedAndCrazy capture and brainwash]] three of her former allies (Kadma, Halinor and Yan Lin), create an Altermare of one of the three so she could be evil (Yan Lin, which led to her granddaughter Hay Lin's HeroicBSOD) and resurrect a fourth [[spoiler: whom she killed many years ago]] (Cassidy). Of course, this didn't mean much: they were defeated a few episodes after their reunion and put back inside the Seal of Nerissa for the rest of the season, until she was defeated by WITCH.
** CHYKN was technically stronger than WITCH because they had two {{Amplifier Artifact}}s to their one, but because they were mind-controlled their reliance on Nerissa meant they were screwed if she was distracted. Nerissa, being DangerouslyGenreSavvy changed tactics and later used them to attack WITCH when they were split up and not transformed.

** The second group is the previous generation of Guardians, better known as [[InSeriesNickname CHYKN]] after [[TheNickname Hay Lin]] [[FunWithAcronyms put their initials together]] as she had done with her own group ("Better witches than chicken"), that [[FallenHero Nerissa]] recruited to fight the protagonists.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'' has two examples:
** In the second story arc [[FallenHero Nerissa]], leader of [[LegacyCharacter the past generation of Guardians]] before [[FaceHeelTurn turning evil]], created the Knights of Revenge, with [[AnIcePerson Tridart]] as [[MakingASplash Irma]]'s counterpart, [[PlayingWithFire Ember as Taranee]]'s, [[TheDragon Shagon]] as [[TheLancer Cornelia]]'s, [[TheBrute Khor]] as [[BlowYouAway Hay Lin]]'s, and [[BigBad Nerissa]] herself to her successor [[TheLeader Will]]. In a variation, Shagon and Khor's powers don't actually match those of their counterparts (Cornelia has control over [[DishingOutDirt Earth]] and [[GreenThumb plants]] while Shagon is [[EmotionEater powered by any hate felt in his presence and especially that against him]], and Khor is an earthbound brute to Hay Lin's graceful flier) but on their roles in their respective groups. Also, the closest they get to a direct counterpart confrontation is Cornelia blasting Shagon during a fight: the Knights only launch quick raids and tend to act by stealth, and during the final battle Nerissa, having just lost half her power, absorbs the powers of her Knights (and in the process she killed Ember and Tridart, who were artificial constructs kept alive by their magic), only for it to backfire horribly when she told Shagon she'd also kill him and Khor and Shagon wounded her right before [[CombatPragmatist the Guardians swarmed and killed her]].
** Much later we're introduced to the Runic Wizards, enemies of Kandrakar who have at their service five counterparts to the Guardians, only males and with what appear to be dark counterparts to their powers. Again there's never a direct confrontation, [[AbortedArc as the Runics are shelved immediately after their debut]].

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' has the Shocker Riders of [[Series/KamenRider the original series]], a group of evil copies of Kamen Rider 2. Subsequent Showa era series use evil copies of main Riders fairly often - if the ScarfOfAsskicking is yellow instead of its usual color, that's ''not'' your beloved hero and you should probably start running. Later series forgo this in favor of newly designed evil riders.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' has the main heroes fight evil versions of themselves twice. The first time happens when they have to save Wakanda from getting invaded by shape-shifting Skrulls. The second happens when Ultron decides to replace all the humans in the world with emotionless robots, and replaces some of the Avengers first.

** The Cabal are Psycho Rangers to ComicBook/IronMan's Illuminati: Norman himself takes Tony's place, and the rest are [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Emma Frost (Professor X)]]; Doctor Doom ([[Comicbook/FantasticFour Mr. Fantastic)]]; SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} (Black Bolt of ComicBook/TheInhumans); ComicBook/TheHood (Doctor Strange); and Namor (er, [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Namor]]). Then come Utopia, Emma and Namor reveal their intentions and leave the Cabal, so Osborn has to pick up someone to fill the spot. Apparently {{Taskmaster}} was the next best option.

* Franchise/TheDCU ''loves'' these. SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor's Injustice Society was made up entirely on one-for-one matches with the Justice League of the time.
