The first and most commonly used variant is someone telling another person that the other person reminds them of themselves, especially if they add, "[[JuniorCounterpart When I was younger,]]" to the end of it. In particular TheHero may say it to a character like a {{sidekick}}, a HeroWorshipper or a NonActionGuy who just showed some pluck and [[LetsGetDangerous Got Dangerous]], an InnocentBystander who actually helped out, etc. Most commonly used to show that even if a character is outside the CompetenceZone currently, they have potential they may yet fulfill, or that they may grow up to be just like the hero and [[CallToAdventure take up the call]].

A character with a deceased LoveInterest or failed romance runs into someone who causes a FlashbackEcho of his/her former love. The character will often look startled, then say "Sorry, for a moment you reminded me of someone I once knew". The two easily form a connection, [[ReplacementLoveInterest foreshadowing a possible future relationship]], though one haunted by the [[TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest tragic end of the previous romance]].

Old and often used stock phrase with several different variations.

''Variant 1: "You remind me of myself"''

In particular TheHero may say it to a character like a {{sidekick}}, a HeroWorshipper or a NonActionGuy who just showed some pluck and [[LetsGetDangerous Got Dangerous]], an InnocentBystander who actually helped out, etc. Most commonly used to show that even if a character is outside the CompetenceZone currently, they have potential they may yet fulfill, or that they may grow up to be just like the hero and [[CallToAdventure take up the call]].

''Variant 2: "You remind me of him"''

The other variant is the speaker saying that someone reminds them of X, with X possibly being anything from their father or mother, their mentor, a legendary hero, etc. A frequently response to TellMeAboutMyFather, which is practically guaranteed to provoke a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. A nastier, more villainish version may include pushing the RelativeButton with this, or to turn it into a way to [[ReminiscingAboutYourVictims Reminisce About Your Victims]] or ask the ever popular question "WouldYouLikeToKnowHowTheyDied".

''Variant 3: "You remind me of her"''

A character with a deceased LoveInterest or failed romance runs into someone who causes a FlashbackEcho of his/her former love. The character will often look startled, then say "Sorry, for a moment you reminded me of someone I once knew". The two easily form a connection, [[ReplacementLoveInterest foreshadowing a possible future relationship]], though one haunted by the [[TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest tragic end of the previous romance]].

In the last two variants, you get extra points if you do a WrongNameOutburst.
