* ''KamichamaKarin'' has Kujyou Himeka and Karasuma Himeka. Their names are written with different kanji, though.
** [[spoiler:They're two parts of the same person so it doesn't really count.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In English, there's two characters named Carrot; a young boy from Usopp's Pirates, and a young female rabbit Mink introduced way later. This doesn't apply to the Japanese version, where their names are different. To avoid confusion, the former Carrot is usually referred to by his Japanese name Ninjin, while the Mink is referred to as Carrot.

* ''KoiKoi7'' has two characters named Yayoi Asuka. One is a pink-haired [[TheDitz ditz]], the other is an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch-wearing]] silver-haired ruthless type. Once the latter Yayoi is [[FountainOfYouth rebooted]], she then goes by "Gantai-chan" (literally "Eyepatch-chan").
* ''GetBackers'' has a Kaoru Haruki, a Haruki Emishi and a Kaoru Ujiie.

* ''NaruTaru'' has the major character [[ShrinkingViolet Akira Sakura]], and minor characters [[SexySecretary Aki Sato]] and [[AlphaBitch Aki Honda]]. None of them are ever mixed up with one another, and it's really just as well - especially given Aki Honda's nature.
* The Creator/{{CLAMP}} metaseries does this very confusingly. There's [[spoiler:[[TsubasaReservoirChronicle Syaoran and Sakura]], their son, Syaoran, his girlfriend, Sakura, and the latter two's clones, Syaoran and Sakura.]] Played with in that everyone with the same name looks exactly alike. [[spoiler:Except for the Syaoran that DOESN'T look alike them, Li Syaoran AKA [[Manga/XxxHOLiC Watanuki Kimihiro]]]].

* Which [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]] trainer do you suppose Ash Ketchum respects more? Aaron, the Elite Four member and bug specialist? Or Aaron, the ancient aura-wielding knight whose Lucario he befriended? And don't forget about Drake and Drake, from the Orange Islands or the Hoenn League, respectively. Or Flint, Brock's father, and Flint, a member of the Sinnoh Elite Four and rival to Volkner. Or Bianca, the girl who was frequently impersonated by Latias, and Bianca, the ditzy female rival in Unova.

* In ''{{Sketchbook}}'', cat lover Sora encounters a new stray cat and decides to call him Haa. Her brother then points out that there's already a cat with that name around, so she comes up with a new one. She also names all [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calico_cat Calico's]] "Mike", after the Japanese name for Calico "Mikeneko", resulting in "Mike the 2nd", "Mike the 3rd", etc. Eventually neither Sora, nor the cats themselves can remember who's who.

* ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' has a character named Maggie who's Drake's daughter. Meanwhile, in sister series ''Read or Dream'', one of the main characters is Maggie Mui. Naturally, when crossover series RODTheTV came out this trope came into effect (Drake even has a double take when Maggie Mui introduces herself.)

* While the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' manga alone, as a sheer result of a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters huge-ass cast]] with [[AllThereInTheManual databooks]] giving practically every character seen for even a moment a name, has only one exception (both one of Danzo's bodyguards and the host of the 7-tailed beast are named "Fu," both of whom you can use in ''VideoGame/NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStorm3''), if you go multi-media there are several characters with repeated names. For example, both Sasori's puppet armor (and thus the person [[spoiler:he made it from]]) and the BigBad of the sixth movie/third Shippuden movie are named "Hiruko", a subject of Orochimaru's cursed seal experiments and the main villain of the Three Tails filler arc are named "Guren", a minor filler character is named "Yagura", which later turned out the name of the former Three Tailed beast host and [[spoiler:the Fourth Mizukage]], and both there are two unrelated Fuma Clans (one from a filler arc, one mentioned to be where [[spoiler:Pain's first Animal Path came from]]). However, the Japanese spellings of these characters names are different. There was a filler character called Jiroubo in addition to the canon Jiroubo. Also Matsuri was used as the name of Gaara's student/fangirl and a girl in Konohamaru's academy class. In the anime, Sabu for some reason had his name changed to Kin, which was the name of one of the Sound Village genin.

* ''Manga/PocketMonsters'' is full of this. There's "Blue", a geeky male ghost {otaku}} but then there's also "Blue", who is based off of Leaf from the remakes of ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. There's a kid named "Red" who is an EvilCounterpart to Isamu, based on Red's updated design in the games. Isamu himself is [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname only ever called]] "Red".
