* {{Inverted|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'', with Mega Man Geo-Omega (the protagonist, and a good guy) telling Harp Note that he is just like her, in an effort to get her to join forces with him. Not only does it work, but it is actually true as both of them have previously [[ParentalAbandonment lost a parent]].

** 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.]]

* This is one of the main points in the plot of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. The hero of the game, Lloyd Irving, is outright compared to the BigBad Mithos more than once. [[spoiler: Mithos' final words drive the point home too. "Farewell, my shadow, you who stand at the end of the path I chose not to follow. I wanted my own world, so I don't regret my choice. I would make the same choice all over again. I will continue to choose this path!"]] It really makes you think on how close Lloyd would have come to being like Mithos if [[spoiler: Colette had actually become Martel's vessel in the end]].
** Also in the same game, Zelos and Colette, while they're both considered protagonists, are often compared to each other due them both having status as [[TheChosenOne Chosen]], but are considered to be quite different from each other: Colette is a cheery if clumsy girl who always tries to help other people and look on the positive side of things, while Zelos is a loudmouthed, perverted cynic who isn't afraid to be blunt. However if you really look at their situations you see that they both [[spoiler: try to hide their pains and insecurities beneath their smiles and pretend like nothing's wrong, which in both cases lead to negative consequences.]]

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'': Velvet, the revenge-obsessed "Lord of Calamity" and Eleanor, the sweet and polite exorcist who just wants to help people, are so much alike it's rather frightening. A kind young woman taught by her idol, Artorius, raised on his maxims and ideals, who is motivated by the horrific murder of a loved one. When she sees said murderer, she flies into a blind, unstoppable rage that cannot be stopped or quenched until the murderer is dead and buried. She grew disillusioned with her idol and those old ideals, and seeks to carve out her own identity based off her own free will. She feels immense guilt for [[spoiler:killing someone who was only trying to protect a family member they loved]], and seeks to atone for all the sins she feels she facilitated or committed no matter how small or how little agency she actually had in those same sins. Both women become [[CoolBigSis Cool Big Sisters]] to Laphicet, they are both [[FriendToAllChildren friends to all children]], they both enjoy cooking and cleaning, and they both end up developing an OddFriendship with their total foils despite their enmity.

* Happens again in ''VideoGame/NierAutomata''. [[spoiler:9S]]'s actions at the end of routes C and D bear a disturbing resemblance to [[spoiler:Eve]]'s actions at the end of routes A and B.



---> '''Malefor''': Such determination to get here. It seems we share other qualities besides our color.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona3}}'', Yukari Takeba is initially on bad terms with her mother because Mrs. Takeba, devastated by losing her husband and Yukari's father, entered superficial relationships with many men. Through the course of Yukari's Social Link, as she becomes closer to the protagonist, she'll admit that she gradually has started to understand what it means to lose the one you love ([[LesYay which also goes for the female protagonist]]). In ''The Answer'', [[spoiler:Yukari's grief and desire to see the protagonist again cause her to be willing to go back in time and risk the end of the world just so there's a chance she could save it without him having to die]].

** The Morag Tong is a legal [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmeri]] [[MurderInc assassin's guild]] of {{Professional Killer}}s. They hold Mephala, a Daedric Prince whose sphere is "obscured to mortals", but who is associated with [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation, lies, sex, and secrets]], as their patron deity. The Dark Brotherhood is an ''illegal'' assassin's guild (leaning closer to a PsychoForHire organization) which split off from the Morag Tong long ago. They practice a relative ReligionOfEvil, serving the "Dread Father" Sithis and his wife, the Night Mother, a mysterious entity who leads the Brotherhood and speaks through [[MouthOfSauron the Listener]] of the organization. According to some sources, the Night Mother may very well be an aspect of Mephala, meaning that both groups, despite their differences, are still dedicated to the same deity.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'': you can find a beggar in Forbidden Woods who pulls a FalseInnocenceTrick at you, he's [[ObviouslyEvil eating a corpse]], [[spoiler: should you sent him to Oedon Chapel, he starts to murder the inhabitants in the church, but shares the Beast Blood Pellets with you for each kill. Of course, you can always [[EvilerThanThou send this Abhorrent Beast to Iosefka's Clinic]]. However, he ''is'' indeed innocent, for a beast. He only preys on people [[NecessarilyEvil because of what he needed]], rather than murdering without reason. Should you engaged him in a fight, he plays this trope straight by pulling a speech, claiming TheHunter is [[EvilerThanThou far more despicable]] and [[PlayerPunch kill more often than him.]]]]
