Strong Family Resemblance is the parent/child trope.
** The half-Romulan Sela is the daughter of Tasha Yar, and an excuse to give Denise Crosby another role in the show. ** Brent Spiner plays Data, Lore, B4, ''and'' Dr. Soong. Justified in that the first three are androids, and Soong was their creator. Spiner came back on ''Enterprise'' and played, yes, Dr. Soong's grandfather.

[[folder:Visual Novels]] * In ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', brothers Kristoph and Klavier Gavin look almost exactly the same, down to the hairstyle. Their resemblance makes the first encounter between Apollo (who used to be mentored by Kristoph) and Klavier a bit awkward: Apollo couldn't help but stare, and Klavier... [[MistakenForGay got the wrong idea.]] --> '''Klavier''': I must say I'm used to being inspected by the ladies... But this is the first time I've felt this way with a man. [[/folder]]

* The season 9 episode ''Dead Letters'' of ''Series/MidsomerMurders'' features two actors returning from the pilot, playing relatives of their original characters (who had been murdered in the pilot). That someone looks much like their sister might not be so strange, but someone looking very much like their cousin (including ''hairstyle and clothing sense'') despite never having met their relative does help to explain why Barnaby is confused by their appearance.
