** 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."]]

** Lampshaded several times in the story, especially with [[spoiler: L's true name: Lawliet, which is pronounced in Japanese like "low light."]]"]] L himself acknowledges their similarities early in the series: "Kira is childish and hates to lose... I am also childish and hate to lose."

** A subtler case, never brought up explicitly in the show, is the clash between Gendo and [=SEELE=]. [[spoiler: Both are {{Tautological Templar}}s willing to obliterate humanity in pursuit of their goals, and they clash because of ''why'' they want to complete their InstrumentalityPlot. [=SEELE=] wants to do it because they think that [[EvilutionaryBiologist humanity has reached an evolutionary stagnation and needs a jump-start to survive]]. Gendo just wants to regain his lost wife and is willing to wipe out humanity in the process.]]

** When Edward confronts Shou Tucker over his use of his wife and daughter as subjects in his experiments, Tucker says Edward is just like him, because Edward used alchemy to try to bring his mother back.

** When Edward confronts Shou Tucker over his use of his wife and daughter as subjects in his experiments, Tucker says Edward is just like him, because Edward used alchemy to try to bring his mother back. Ed starts beating him for this, but Al pulls him back. Tucker looks like he's about to push Ed further, when Al says "Mr. Tucker, if you don't shut up, ''I'll'' be the one beating you." Given that Al is a hulking suit of armor, this makes Tucker be silent.

** Played with a bit regarding Tenma and Johan. Inspector Lunge analyzes Johan's crimes from the perspective that Tenma is the killer and that "Johan" is simply an alternate personality who doesn't really exist. As absurd as this may seem to the reader/viewer, his logic isn't as far-fetched as one would think. Lunge reasons that Tenma would have to have a calm, clinical mindset to perform his surgeries and that is exactly what he reads from Johan's crime scenes. Complicating things is something both characters ''do'' have in common: [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation their disconnect from others and society in general]]. Upon researching Tenma's background and concluding that he doesn't fit into Japanese society, Lunge simply reinforces his view that Tenma's detachment is what allows him to kill without a second thought. [[NotSoSimilar In reality, Tenma isn't as much like the real killer as Lunge thinks he is]]. The nature of each character's alienation differs in that Tenma's mindset (according to ''Another Monster'') is basically IJustWantToHaveFriends, while Johan [[LackOfEmpathy has simply lost the ability to care about or connect with others whatsoever]]. And then there's Johan's DissonantSerenity put up against Tenma's assertions that [[NotSoStoic he isn't as calm as he appears to be]] [[ItNeverGetsAnyEasier when performing surgeries]].
** Johan and Nina, despite being PolarOppositeTwins, have some key similarities. The most obvious similarities are that both of them have had their sense of identity disturbed at one point or another and have lost much of the childhood memories. Furthermore, while Johan is clearly the most dangerous twin, neither one of them is someone you should mess with. But what's most disturbing is that [[spoiler: Nina exhibits a violent inner "monster" of her own when placed under hypnosis. This repressed dark side was created by the very same events that made Johan who he is. The only difference is that those events ''actually happened'' to Nina, whereas Johan simply ''convinced'' himself that everything happened to him.]]

** Played with a bit regarding Tenma and Johan. One thing they ''do'' have in common is their [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation disconnect from others and society in general]]. This similarity is prominent enough that when Lunge looks into Tenma's background, he's able to make conclusions about Tenma as a (theoretical) criminal based on Johan's crimes (which he believes Tenma committed). However, Lunge is incorrect in his assumptions and is unaware that unlike the actual perpetrator (Johan), Tenma hasn't lost the ability to care about people or the desire to connect with them.
