** Another, very disturbing one is the result of FridgeHorror. [[spoiler:Look what Femto did to Caska and Guts during the Eclipse, now look back at volume 3, where Guts is forcing young Theresia to watch as he brutally tortures her father (The aforementioned Count, who himself is quite the TragicVillain) right in front of her]]. It causes me to shiver everytime I remember, because you can just ''see'' how close Guts is to turn into what [[spoiler:Griffith]] had become!

* Manga/{{Naruto}} and Gaara. Their arc (and their eventual friendship) actually bases on them being NotSoDifferent. This also happens in ''way'' too many fillers in the anime, particularly in the Temple of Fire filler with Sora. Not only did they initially start out as outcasts in their respective communities, but Sora even has '''part of the Nine-Tailed Fox's chakra''' within him. Also, in the ''Ultimate Ninja'' game, if you select Hinata's history mode, when you face Sakura she'll say that Hinata reminds her of how she used to be shy before meeting Ino, fighting you/Hinata for a good challenge, and offer encouragement and comfort if you/Hinata lose.

** In chapter 485, Naruto admits that he isn't too different from [[spoiler: Sasuke, since he once harbored thoughts of revenge against the Leaf Village for his shabby treatment]]. He claims that [[ForWantOfANail if things had been a little different]], their positions could have been switched.

* In the anime version of ''{{Pretear}}'' [[BigBad Fenrir]] even says at one point that Himeno is going to repeat her fate -- to which Himeno immediately objects. [[spoiler:Not only Fenrir actually got her powers from being in the same position as Himeno, she turned evil because of her unrequited love for the same person Himeno is in love with.]]

** Komamura based his friendship with Tousen on the belief that their hearts were similar enough for him to be able to guide Tousen back to a better path. Later, he falls victim to his desires for revenge just like Tousen. [[spoiler:Instead of dying, Sajin loses his humanity. He acknowledges the irony as he begins to lose his human thoughts.]]

** During the Saiyan and Namek Sagas, Vegeta is this to Frieza. As much as he hates Frieza, Vegeta is quite similar to him in many ways, particularly in his sadism; he refused to even consider reviving Raditz for being a weakling, killed Nappa in cold blood for [[YouHaveFailedMe losing to Goku]] even as Nappa begged him for help, did the same to a Saibamen for losing to Tien, and slaughtered an entire Namekian village, children included, with a PsychoticSmirk on his face. Dende [[LampshadeHanging even flat-out tells Vegeta to his face that he's no better than Frieza]].

** Near, who, [[spoiler:before officially taking on L's name]], is shown to be just as questionable in his methods as [[spoiler:his deceased predecessor]], if not more so. It's hard to go into detail, but a hotly debated issue is the accuracy of [[spoiler:Matsuda's theory that he controlled Mikami with the Death Note. Not helped at all by WordOfGod, which states that Near is "dishonest" and "the more evil" of him and Mello.]] But many have found him to be simply maligned by L-Fangirls who see him as a ReplacementScrappy

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': In the anime, when Keroro is inspired by finding Dororo to actually act like a competent leader, Giroro acts like more of a YesMan then Tamama, [[HoYay even having sparkly pink backgrounds to emphasize his admiration]].

* ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife'' has the protagonists, the BrotherSisterTeam of Sora and Shiro, compared with Kurami, their initial opponent for the throne of Elchea, and Feel Nilvalen, Kurami's elven friend [[spoiler:and owner]]. Both pairs have strong bonds of trust, and are confident that the other will support them if they make a mistake. When Sora tells Kurami this, she asks him if he got the line from her memories (which they recently exchanged), he simply shrugs and answers noncommittally.

** The Haninozuka brothers also qualify. They initially seem different with Honey pursuing sweets, is more emotional and is in the host club and Chika not interested in sweets at all, is strict and stoic and is currently the leader of the martial arts club. However, Chika shares his older brother's emotional capacity and expresses some fondness for cute animals. He's just a little embarrassed to express this side of himself.

** Lampshaded several times in the story, especially with [[spoiler: L's true name: Lawliet, which is pronounced in Japanese like "low light."]]
