* This is the case in the original ''Backyard Baseball'' and ''Backyard Soccer''. After the pros first appear in the [[BackyardSports series]], the trope is averted.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', playable character Kanji Tatsumi shares a name with Tatsumi Port Island (the location of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''), which the characters visit at one point. In Japanese they're written with completely different characters that just happen to be pronounced the same way, but there's no distinction between them in the English version.
** The ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' series generally doesn't care a lot about limiting their Steves. As for ''VideoGame/Persona4DancingAllNight'' there are now:
*** Two characters named "Yosuke" (One in [[VideoGame/{{Persona}} the first game]] and one as a playable character in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'')
*** Two characters named "Akinari" (A side-character in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' and a Social Link character in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'').
*** At least three characters named "Yuko" (An NPC in ''Videogame/{{Megami Ibunroku Persona}}'', a Social Link character in ''Videogame/{{Persona 3}}'' and an NPC in ''Persona4DancingAllNight''.)
*** Two characters with the last name "Uesugi" ([[VideoGame/{{Persona}} Hidehiko]] and [[VideoGame/Persona4DancingAllNight Tamami]]) who may or may not be related.
*** Two characters named "Nozomi" (A Social Link character in ''Persona 3'' and a story-relevant character in ''VideoGame/Persona4DancingAllNight'' - They're different genders too.)
*** Three characters nicknamed "Ai" ([[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} Aigis]], [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Ai Ebihara]] and [[Anime/Persona4TheAnimation Aika]].)
*** An ungodly amount of characters with either the last name or the nickname "Yuki", "Yukki" or "Yuuki".
*** Two Tatsuyas and two Mayas in ''Persona 2'' (This one is intentional, however.)
*** A [[VideoGame/{{Persona 2}} Lisa]] and an [[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} Elizabeth]].
*** A [[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} Theodore]] and a [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Teddie]] (This last one is dub-only, however.)
*** Probably a whole load of other name-alikes that we have missed in this list.
*** And now, if you count the [[Anime/{{Persona3TheMovie}} movie adaptations]], ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' gives us our second "Makoto" as a major character in the franchise!

** In the games since ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', the individual, nondescript Trainers you fight all have unique names. While few of them share names ''exactly,'' you'll often run into two totally different Trainers with slight spelling variations in their names, such as an Allie and an Alli, or a Sean and a Shawn. This is at its most amusing in Platinum, where there's a Zackary (a Camper) and a Zachary (a Fisherman) on ''the same route''.
*** The infamous Youngster Joey is on several routes in several regions, but only the one from Johto has the top percentage Rattata.

** ''Pokémon [=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=]'' have a minor trainer named "Dawn", which is also the name of the female protagonist of [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl the Sinnoh games]]. Some fans thought it was an intentional case of {{foreshadowing}} as she travels with a Gentleman (Rowan was traveling prior to the games an [=NPC=] Dawn is his assistant when you play as Lucas), however their Japanese names don't match plus it doesn't work timeline-wise.



** Additionally every female born into the royal family has to be named Zelda, yes every single one. In-series the reason is that this tradition started in memory of a prince's sister who was cursed and fell into a deep sleep that lastee centuries (if not millenia). The only one not named "Zelda" is the one from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', who is named "[[spoiler:Tetra]]" due to circumstances (though she is called "Zelda" a few times).

** ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' has Ann and Maria when ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonSNES'' had an Ann and a Maria as well. It's {{justified}} in that the latter are the formers grandparents, and thus the ''64'' characters are named after them. Maria in ''64'' is a [[SpellMyNameWithAnS translation error]] anyway.

** Special Mention goes to two NPCs in the Peak of Serenity, a Monk training ground. Monks get a daily quest to train with "Master Cheng", a male pandaren. To get to him, you will usually pass "Master Cheng", a female blood elf. Talking to the Pandaren, he tells you he's "the ''other'' Master Cheng", and that there's no relation.

** {{Enforced|trope}} in ''Legion''. Other player's bodyguards are nameless, even if it's the same follower as yours. This prevents, for example, from having two Mages being followed by two Aethas Sunreavers. From each Mage's perspective, they are followed by Aethas Sunreaver and the other one is followed by an IdenticalStranger called "Tirisgarde Apprentice".

** Although a better example would be in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' where you have the bard Edward Chris von Muir, who is the Prince of Damcyan. Later on you, recruit the {{ninja}} Edward Geraldine, who goes by the alias of Edge. Did we mention he's the prince of Eblan? And then later they are both kings in the sequel. Now, if only there was a character named Ed, we could have a Ed, Edge, and Edward party...\\

to:

** The logical conclusion of this can be found in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper'', which includes at least four party members all named Cid--although given the type of game this is it's at least justified. Along with Record Keeper's own Cid, there's also ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''[='=]s Cid, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''[='=]s Cid and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV''[='=]s Cid.
