* Due to [[IdenticalStranger looking almost exactly like him]], Kiyama Hiroto from ''Anime/InazumaEleven'' is the adopted son of Kira Seijirou and a replacement for his deceased son, Hiroto, whose name he gets from. It is unknown what his real first name is, though if we go with the second sequel, an AlternateContinuity where the original Hiroto [[SparedByTheAdaptation is alive]], it's Tatsuya.

** There are two ReplacementGoldfish relationships that complement and parallel each other. The orphaned Elric brothers take on their alchemy teacher Izumi as a mother figure, while Izumi herself had a stillborn child and now accepts the Elrics as surrogate children. Considering the result is pretty consistently a [[Webcomic/VGCats pus-oozing, organ pile, sin against God]], you'd think people would learn eventually.

* Cool, kind ClassRepresentative Aya Kurokawa in ''Manga/KanojoNiNaruHi'' is a is a voluntary replacement goldfish for her older sister (also named Aya, albeit written with different Kanji) who was killed in an accident shortly before Aya herself underwent a spontaneous GenderBender. She goes along with it because she loved her sister, is convinced that her sister truly was a much better person, and feels tremendous guilt for jealously wishing her sister ill before she died. Tragically, she's also a StepfordSmiler steeped in self loathing because she remains convinced she's just an imitation of the "real" Aya. She doesn't allow herself any credit for her own actions and firmly believes "The real me is ugly" despite BecomingTheMask.

** In the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]] Majihal creates simulacra of his lost love interest from years ago. Turns out she was alive, but he had become so obsessed with perfecting his ideal android that he refused to accept an average-looking middle-aged woman as the genuine article. Alchemist Shou Tucker is also obsessed with using human transmutation to recreate his lost daughter, whom he "killed" by using as ingredients in a transmutation experiment, which then died. (In addition, this is pretty much ''the'' reason anyone creates homunculi; the ones made for reasons other than replacing dead loved ones are exceptions.)

** In one ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Brotherhood]]'' OVA, the Elric brothers encounter a rich couple that lost their daughter and apparently succeeded in transmuting her back, as they see the girl completely healthy, [[spoiler: but it turns out that, unsurprisingly, the transmutation had failed, and the couple lied to the alchemist (who lost his eyes as payment) to make him believe he succeeded, and the girl was, in reality, an orphan they adopted because of her uncanny resemblance to their late daughter.]]

* Variation: [[spoiler:Fate Testarossa]] from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' was [[spoiler: [[TomatoInTheMirror (unknown to her)]] supposed to be a [[CloningBlues replacement]] for Alicia Testarossa, the daughter of Precia Testarossa. Unfortunately, even with Alicia's memories, Fate was not a perfect copy (the Movie mentions that unlike Alicia, she's not left-handed and has different magic potential). In the end, she unwittingly became merely a tool to help Precia resurrect Alicia, while her inability to mimic the original led to much suffering on her part.]]
