** Interestingly enough, said student turns out to be quite the model commissar, offering to stay behind (and certainly die) in order to buy time for the others to escape. When he does survive, (but is brain washed) he prefers to commit suicide after being temporarily freed rather than lose his free will again. Should Cain's assessment be on the mark, it would seem to shine a light on Cain's own character.

* Gender-neutral, but it's not romantic: In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', returning characters occasionally mention how the new PlayerCharacter reminds them of the first one.
--> '''Anders:''' I had a friend like you once; ''(fond)'' got in all kinds of trouble. [[MagneticHero Dragged me along.]] Didn't think I'd be doing that again.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', on a visit to the past, Fry accidentally causes his grandfather's death and ends up sleeping with his grandfather's girlfriend because she says that "You remind me of Ennis." [[spoiler:Said girlfriend was, in fact, Fry's grandmother, the result being that he becomes his own grandfather. This has odd repercussions later in the series.]]



* Scottie in ''Film/{{Vertigo}}'' utters the line: "Because you remind me of somebody." (Of course, as it happens [[spoiler:she is that somebody]].)

Added DiffLines:

* At the beginning of ''Film/TheNextKarateKid'', Julie's grandmother inadvertently addresses her by her deceased mother's name, implying that this trope is in play.

* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': Viv says that Sandra reminds her of [[spoiler: Lilith. In Jewish lore, Lilith was Adam's first wife, instead of Eve; Lilith left the Garden of Eden because she didn't want to be subservient to Adam, and may be the mother of all demons, which makes sense why Sandra now has her eyes.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''The Golem's Eye'' from ''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy'', Bartimaeus realizes fairly early on that John Mandrake (Nathaniel) has adopted certain mannerisms that remind him of someone, though he can't quite figure out who. When he finally does figure it out, he doesn't hesitate to tell Nathaniel that his fiddling with his hair, etc., reminds him of Nathaniel's old master, Arthur Underwood. This does not please Nathaniel at all, as he loathed his old master, who never did anything to protect him and treated him like an idiot incapable of learning or doing much.

* An inversion of the trope shows up in ''RoadToPerdition'', when Sullivan admits to one of his sons that it was the son that ''didn't'' remind him of himself that he loved more.
* In Chris Roberson's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} BloodRavens novel ''Dawn of War II'', the [[CryingLittleKid two boys]] they find in the hive remind Thaddeus of himself at that age--partly because he came from the same sort of hive, and partly because they fit the aspirant profile. (When he suggests that they might become BloodRavens and [[{{Revenge}} kill xenos such as killed]] [[MissingMom their mother]], they are quite eager to be like him.)
