* Done by Asa and Yoru in Asa's route in ''VisualNovel/IfMyHeartHadWings''. The two do a painfully bad job and constantly fail at their attempts to impersonate the other, yet the person they're trying to trick is the only person who doesn't realize they're doing it. He's also Asa's boyfriend in that route, so he ''really'' should know better.

* Tragic example in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': After Hiashi Hyuuga killed a ninja(who was a visiting delegate for another hidden village) for trying to kidnap his daughter, Hinata, the ninja's village demanded Hiashi's head in compensation. The clan elders suggested sending Hiashi's twin brother and Neji's father, Hizashi, in his place. Though Hiashi objected, Hizashi agreed as a way to save his brother, prevent a war and [[ScrewDestiny choose his own destiny]].

Hizashi, as a member of the cadet branch, had the Caged Bird Seal, which would seal his Byakugan away upon his death, thus preventing the other village from getting it). Though Hiashi objected, Hizashi agreed as a way to save his brother, prevent a war and [[ScrewDestiny choose his own destiny]].

* A variant on this happens in the French comic, ''Les Passagers du Vent'' (''The Passengers of the Wind''), though it's played for drama and not comedy. The two girls, Agnes and Isabeau, aren't related (Isabeau, nicknamed "Isa," is an orphan brought in as Agnes's playmate), and while they resemble one another, they aren't completely identical. In order to play a prank on Agnes's father, who hasn't seen either of them for years, they swap clothes and pretend to be one another -- and the prank works so well that he, to take care of their further education, sends "Isa" (really Agnes) off to a convent while keeping "Agnes" (really Isa) with him in the belief that she's his real daughter. Scared of being sent to convent herself, "Agnes" keeps the bluff going, and hence nobody listens to "Isa's" attempt at telling the truth. The girls end up permanently living each other's lives, leading to a very complicated love/hate relationship between them as adults.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Pahkitew Island,'' two of them contestants, [[EvilTwin Amy]] and [[ExtremeDoormat Sammy]]/"[[MaliciousMisnaming Samey]]," are a pair of identical twins. Amy is a ManipulativeBitch and a bully to Sammy, and eventually arranges for their team to vote her off. Sammy decides to [[TheDogBitesBack strike back]] by tricking Amy into eating a poisonous fruit, giving her a rash that renders her unable to speak. When the elimination is announced, Sammy simply pretends to be Amy and Amy gets kicked off the island instead. Sammy is able to keep this up for a few more episodes with only her friend [[AwesomeAussie Jasmine]] (and [[SecretSecretKeeper apparently]] [[TheSmartGuy Scarlett]]) aware.
