* In ''AsurasWrath'', [[BloodKnight Augus]] claims this is true with him and Asura during the fight against him. Defied by Asura, [[spoiler:they couldn't be more different since Asura is actually fighting for someone he loves rather than for its own sake]] and ''that'' is what gives him the strength to defeat Augus in the end.

* While it does depend on how you roleplay TheHero, your half-brother [[BigBad Sarevok]] in ''BaldursGate'' is implied to have several similarities to you. Perhaps the most damning evidence is [[spoiler:a vision in ''Throne of Bhaal'' which shows that, had your positions been reversed, you each would have ended up ''exactly like the other'']]. You can't fulfill this trope any more than that.

**In a more meta sense, [[spoiler:at the end of a [[KillEmAll Genocide playthrough]], Flowey tells you his story. He has the power to SAVE and RESET just like you, and just like you he used it to find out [[OneHundredPercentCompletion every possible outcome]], without regard for the fact that all the characters are people with feelings. He befriended everyone, then reset and killed everyone. If you're reading that speech, you most likely did the same thing. Or you're watching someone else play, in which case...]]
--->'''Flowey:''' [[spoiler:At least we're better than those sickos who stand around and WATCH it happen...]]
--->'''Flowey:''' [[spoiler:Those pathetic people who want to see it, but are too weak to do it themselves.]]
--->'''Flowey:''' [[spoiler:I bet someone like that's watching right now, aren't they...?]]

** On the flip side, [[spoiler: [[{{jerkass}} Flowey the Flower]] tries to push you into accepting his philosophy, "In this world, it's KILL or BE KILLED" and, should you kill him at the end of the neutral path, his last words are a triumphant "I KNEW YOU HAD IT IN YOU."]] Conversely, if you choose to [[spoiler: show him mercy, despite everything that he has done and is threatening to do should you let him live, he'll have a VillainousBreakdown and run away. Fleeing is one of the options in the "mercy" menu, meaning you've made him accept your philosophy, that kill or be killed are never the only options.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' employs the trope between monsters and humans. You're told that monsters and humans fought in a war long ago with the humans being the victors, thus one would assume the monsters were evil. You quickly find out that the monsters have a culture very similar to humans (use of the internet, celebrating Christmas, etc) and should you spare monsters instead of killing them, they can see that not all humans are bad and the two sides might be more similar than they think.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': Magnus and Ellegaard, despite their dislike of each other, are both [[{{Pride}} stubbornly proud]] of their achievements and difficult to get on the good side of. When they meet [[spoiler:the Wither Storm]], they both come to the same conclusions (the one you recruited realizes it's a threat they could never have imagined and decides to go at night, the one not recruited wants to wait til morning, and if you pick going out at night, the opposing party says that they're only going because you're a fan of the other).

** In an example with two companions, Korgan makes this argument to Valygar, since both are kinslayers. Valygar points out that his own motivation was to stop his crazed mother from killing people with BlackMagic, while Korgan went on a murder spree to be the sole claimant to an inheritance.
-->'''Korgan:''' Killing is killing, my lanky friend. Sugar-coat it all ye like but when we go to family reunions we both go alone.

** Kills by targeting weak points from concealment and prides himself on professionalism. Sniper or Spy?

* Meta example from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'': Obsessed with [[spoiler: [[SuperBreedingProgram breeding a perfect super soldier]]]] for their own ends, disregarding compatibilities between people to achieve it. Did I describe [[spoiler: Validar, the BigBad]], or your average Lunatic+ player?

* In ''DirgeOfCerberus'' when Vincent [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impales]] Azul the Cerulean ''on his own cannon'' by ''hurling'' it through his torso, Azul comments that Vincent, possessed by [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Chaos]], is an even more of a beast than ''he'' is.
* Garland from ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' tells the Warrior of Light that they are both pawns in the endless cycle of battle. The warrior however argues that Garland is a man who's given in to despair, whereas he has not.
