Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'': The fourth episode in the series reveals that not only is the Phantom's real name Kit Walker, he has an older brother named Kurt. This is a rare example of siblings who are not twins being given similar sounding names.

Added DiffLines:

* Two of the background Outsiders in ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'' look very similar and thus {{fanon}} deems them littermates. Their {{Fan Nickname}}s are "Spotty" and "Dotty".

Added DiffLines:

* While he only appears in a brief sketch from an early-90s Earth Day special, leading to debate on how canon he is, Egon Spengler from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' apparently has an identical twin brother named Elon. ''Literally'' completely identical. (Both Spengler twins were played by [[Creator/HaroldRamis the same actor]] within the span of a year or so.) Egon does mention having nieces and nephews in the 2009 video game, but doesn't mention Elon or even having a twin outright.

* Amphion and Zethus: Sons of Zeus. First and last letter of the alphabet could count...if not for the fact that zeta is ''not'' the last letter of the Hellenic alphabet (that's omega).

* Subverted in ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru''. Yumi and Yuuki look like [[HalfIdenticalTwins genderswaps]] and are the same age but aren't actually twins. They were just born one after the other, with Yumi being the older sister.

* Fuuka and Fumika Narutaki in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. Less obvious in translation, as the former's name is usually Anglicized as "Fuka".

* ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer'' has sisters Shōko and Shūko, although they, too, are not twins -- Shuuko is older. This was lampshaded by their English voice actresses in the audio commentary, who wondered what kind of cruel parents their characters had.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/JaneTheVirgin'', Petra and Rafael name their twin daughters Elsa and Anna. The theme isn't intentional; when Jane mentions ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Petra doesn't make the connection, and once she does, figures Jane's the only one who will.
