* PlayedWith on ''TotalDrama:'' "[[EvilTwin Amy]]" and "[[ExtremeDoormat Sammy]]" don't quite rhyme, but MaliciousMisnaming results in the latter being called "Samey" most of the time. (Hey, that ''did'' rhyme!)

* Sakon and Ukon of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' take this a bit further than most -- they actually share the same body, and the first kanji in their names mean "left" and "right" respectively. Also, Hinata and Neji's fathers are twins: Hiashi and Hizashi, which mean "daytime" and "sunlight" respectively, and both contain the kanji for "sun" like most Hyuga family members. Then there's Kinkaku and Ginkaku, whose names mean Gold Horn and Silver Horn respectively, and one another's names is the word they have said most in their lives. They usually end their sentences with the other's name.

** And later, when Abby joined the club, her twin was named Anna. Which is rather funny, considering the Author admitted that Abby and Anna were called [[ILoveLucy Lucy and Ethel]] in drafts, as naming the twins was the grand prize of a fan contest.

* Vent & Aile of ''VideoGame/MegaManZX''. French for "Wind" & "Wing", respectively.
** Though they aren't twins so much as [[OppositeSexClone alternate universe equivalents]] of each other (or something).
** And of course Rock & Roll from the [[VideoGame/MegaMan original]]. They're not quite twins, as Roll was built a bit later, but it still fits.

You will also notice that the first three letters of the brothers' names syncronize pretty well with the acronyms for their companies.

* Many members of the Twins trainer class in the ''{{Pokemon}}'' series use this trope, especially in the [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Gen II games]]. Twins Ann & Anne are probably the most extreme example. They also tend to use identical, similar, or complementary Pokémon.

* While the cast of ''EternalSonata'' falls under something more like ''Population'' Theme Naming (so that March and Salsa aren't particularly noteworthy), a better example, similar to Kat and Ana above, can be found in Tenuto's fields early in the game: a pair of twin girls named Sop and Rano.
