* ''{{Franchise/Nasuverse}}'', in particular ''{{Tsukihime}}'' and especially ''VideoGame/{{Melty Blood}}'' has a weird case of this: We have three Akihas in Melty Blood, two Arcueids (three if we consider her original form Archetype Earth), and a whopping four Shikis in the entire Nasuverse. Here's the thing: The different Akihas are just different versions of the exact same character, Akiha Tohno, one normal, one normal but in alternate outfit, one her SuperPoweredEvilSide of sorts. With Arcueid, one is her normal form, the other is her SuperpoweredEvilSide EnemyWithout... something, and then there's Archetype Earth. The Shikis are slightly more complicated: Two of them, Shiki Tohno and Shiki Nanaya, are the same person, the latter being, [[RunningGag again]], SuperPoweredEvilSide. Then SHIKI (the all caps is important) is his evil brother of sort. The last one is Shiki Ryougi, who is instead from ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' verse, different from Tsukihime (although she a GuestFighter in ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood''). The only similarity the four Shikis has is that they have some form of [[EvilEye Mystic Eye]].

* Given the 500ish characters that have appeared in the ''Franchise/{{Suikoden}}'' series so far, it's something of a miracle that there were only a handful of names ([[SuikodenI Hu]][[SuikodenIII go]], for one) ever shared by multiple characters (time-traveling teleportresses in ''VideoGame/SuikodenIII'' aside). Then there's Sarah the evil blond sorceress and Sarah the [[VideoGame/SuikodenI level 50 cleaning lady]].

*** The infamous Youngster Joey is on several routes in several regions, but only one has the top percentage Rattata.

** Then there's Mike from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterI'' and the boxer from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', whose original name was Mike Bison (officially abbreviated to M. Bison). Since they're both black boxers with roughly similar designs, this has led to speculation as to whether they're the same character or not.

** In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', there is only one name shared in both franchises, Alex (the blonde guy from ''Street Fighter'' and the velociraptor from ''Tekken''; coincidentally, both are wrestlers). The game avoids this problem by including neither character on the roster.


Added DiffLines:

** The first two ''Tekken'' games had a BruceLeeClone named Marshall Law. He was replaced by his son Forest in the third game, before Marshall returned to the franchise for the next four installments. The only problem is, both characters are referred to as "Law" on their HUDs rather than by their first names. So, when the two Laws are both playable for the first time in ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2'', their HUDs have their full names listed instead. With just Marshall appearing in ''Tekken 7'', he's back to being known simply as "Law".
** There are five {{legacy character}}s in the franchise aside from the Laws: Armor King, Jack, Kuma, King, and Roger. While Jack gets a new number ever game (except in ''Tekken 3'' where he's "Gun Jack" and ''Tekken 4'' where he's not available), and the new Roger is now "Roger Jr.", both Kings and Kuma have always been referred to simply by those names. There has never been more than one King, Armor King, or Kuma playable per game, so they avert this.
** ''Tekken 5'' and ''6'' had a Wesley Snipes-esque ninja character named Raven. In ''7'', he's replaced by his female master, aptly named "Master Raven".
** Finally, this trope is played literally straight, as there is indeed only one Steve in the franchise: Steve Fox.

** In ''1'' there's a gun called the Reaper. No relation to what the BigBad is. It's not even a particularly quality gun. A poetic title for one of the assignments, "Old, Unhappy, Far-Off Things" is from a poem called "The Solitary Reaper", which again has no relation. Unless you ''really'' stretch and go with the WildMassGuessing that [[spoiler: batarians have been Reaper-influenced for decades and the barbarous treatment they use on captives reflects that]].

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', squadmate Cora Harper shares a surname with original series character Jack Harper - aka [[spoiler: the Illusive Man.]] While there's nothing to suggest a connection (yet), you can bet [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail it's gotten people wondering.]]

* In ''[[OgreBattle Tactics Ogre]]'', there are two Lans (Lanselot), one on the protagonist's side, and one on the antagonist's. Both are Knights, and the first stage in the game involves confusing one for the other. The prequel reveals that this is a title.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' gives us budding Trainer and rival Wally and Sootopolis Gym Leader Wallace, the former being presumably short for the latter.
