** While we're at politics, the punchline of a British sketch show about some past US election was: "...the Republicans (cut to Explain-O-Man: "which are a conservative party") versus the Democrats (cut to Explain-O-Man: "which are a conservative party")". For obvious reasons, noone has applied this gag to the Trump vs. Clinton election.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': When Robbie captures Daisy, he says that they're not very different. They're both vigilantes going after the same groups; the difference is that she tries to avoid killing if she can, and [[DetectEvil Robbie doesn't need proof to kill people]]. She turns this around on him when she suggests they work together.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': In "Battle of the Bastards", Daenerys wants to crucify the Masters of Slavers Bay and burn their cities to the ground in retaliation for their attacking Meereen. Hoping to avoid seeing Dany play out this trope and become more like her father the Mad King Aerys, Tyrion told her how King Aerys planned to destroy King's Landing with wildfire to put down a rebellion, thus killing those loyal to him as well as the traitors.

* Parodied in the ''Series/RedDwarf XII'' episode "Twentica". Lister has spent much of the episode complaining about how hackneyed and cliche everything about the Exponoids are. When their leader tells him "We are not so different, you and I", he decides they're just taking the smeg.

** In a later scene though, Omar gets this handed to him by the Bunk, telling him that for all his affectations of being a man rebelling against a violent system (the drug lords) he's not very different than them (he mostly robs relatively unimportant teens and young men at gunpoint for money/drugs) and has made the area worse by stirring up a hornet's nest every-time he tries to raid a stash-house or get revenge on them.

** Stringer Bell wants to reform the drug trade and run it more like a business. He's just like Major Colvin, who's trying to improve the policing in the Western District despite the higher-ups' desire for good numbers over quality police work. Stringer sees himself and Colvin as equals, "both trying to make sense of this game" from opposite sides of the law. Not surprisingly, when their reform attempts fail, they both say "Get on with it, motherfucker!" to the person ending their attempts for good: Stringer to Omar and Brother Mouzone as they prepare to shoot him to death, and Colvin to Burrell and Rawls as they relieve him of command.

Added DiffLines:

** In the continuation comics, this is noted in-universe as potentially having become true for Spike and Angel. They're both vampire with souls, both in love with Buffy, deal with problems by brooding, and are currently TheAtoner trying to make up for what they've done in the past. In addition, the TV show noted that Angelus is a big reason Spike was how he was because he wanted to make someone [[InvokedTrope similar to himself.]] Angel is too flustered to argue well when Willow brings it up, while Spike only manages the comeback that they're different as night and day because he's British while Angel's Irish. The issue itself [[NotSoSimilar presents a different difference: Spike is more open to change than Angel and possibly more capable of it due to having gotten his soul much more recently.]]
