** 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, it's enough for him to make conclusions about Tenma as a (theoretical) criminal based on Johan's crimes (which he believes Tenma committed). Yet this is where their similarities end since Tenma, unlike Johan, still wants to connect to others.

* Creator/LeijiMatsumoto really loves this trope, but it's more obvious in ''GalaxyExpress999'' (in fact, the series revolves around the concept that the only difference between humans and mechanized people is that the mechanized people feels less limited by their robotic bodies).

* Akihito and Mirai in ''LightNovel/BeyondTheBoundary''. Mirai early attempts to distance herself from Akihito because she believed she is alone, cursed and has no one to rely on, unlike him. In episode 4, he tells her she is being foolish. When she sees [[spoiler: his SuperpoweredEvilSide awaken and his "friends" aggressively attempt to control him]], she realizes how wrong she was about him.

** In A's, during Zafira's third fight with Arf in Episode 7, he says that he will serve his mistress regardless of whether what he's doing is right. He then says "You're the same type of beast as me... can you say you're any different?" While he is a guardian beast and Arf is a familiar (which Arf herself says is a difference only in terminology), he has a point considering that Arf had helped Fate gather the Jewel Seeds in the first season. Arf is left unable to articulate a response.

* [[BigBad Jail Scaglietti]] of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' uses as the basis of his BreakThemByTalking the assertion that Fate's [[ActionMom adopting children]] who would become ChildSoldiers that loved her makes her no different from [[MadScientist Jail himself]] or her EvilMatriarch of a mother. Erio and Caro, the children in question, respond with a YouAreNotAlone speech about how they're the ones who chose their path and that all Fate did was raise them to be strong-willed enough to do so, [[HeroicResolve which gives Fate the strength]] to take Jail and his Numbers down in a SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome. (Ironically, it turns out that Jail is right about himself and Fate being similar, just not in the ways he thinks: both are [[spoiler:ArtificialHumans who [[GoneHorriblyRight exceeded design expectations]] and [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters took down their own creators]]. Too bad for Jail that ''he'' was Fate's creator]].)

** Baby, the first ArcVillain of ''Anime/DragonBallGT'', constantly goes on about how the Saiyans are a bunch of violent, bloodthirsty barbarians, but his actions (enslaving an entire race, killing people without care) prove him to be just as violent and bloodthirsty.

* Alviss and Rolan in ''MarchenAwakensRomance''. Both of them were orphans, victims of circumstances beyond their control. What differed was who took them in. Whereas Alviss was found by Dana/Boss, Rolan was found by [[TheDragon Phantom]], and their loyalties were based on those encounters. Alviss [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the trope in their battle in the finals, saying Rolan may have turned out more like him if it had not been Phantom who found him.

* ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]''
** One of the big revelations is that humans share much of their DNA with their [[EldritchAbomination enemies]], the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels]]. Misato remarks on the tragic irony behind the fact that each race wants to exterminate the other despite being so similar on a genetic level.

* Tetsunosuke and Suzu from ''PeacemakerKurogane'', although constantly pushing each other's buttons and being [[TheRival rivals]], are shown to think to themselves that maybe they're not so different after all.
