* ''Series/AllMyChildren'''s Dimitri Marick first appeared onscreen rescuing heroine Natalie from a well where she'd been imprisoned by her psychotic sister Janet. As he tended to her, he repeatedly had flashbacks of a very similar appearing woman falling from a horse. Despite genuinely falling in love with Natalie it was very obvious that a huge part of his attraction to her was her resemblance to this mystery woman. Viewers soon learned that the woman was his wife and that she hadn't even been killed, just severely injured and left in a vegetative state.

* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'': Subverted in the episode "Mary 25", wherein the sleazy boss of a robotics company murdered [[spoiler:his wife]] prior to the episode and replaced her with a robot made in her exact likeness. However, his motive for this is clearly to cover up his murder of her, since he all but ignores the robot and uses a RobotMaid instead to satisfy his "needs".

*** Something similar happens in the episode ''Silicon Avatar'' with scientist, Dr. Kila Marr, who's son died on Omicron Theta -Data's home world- during the attack of the xcrystaline Entity. She goes from open hostility towards Data due to him looking exactly like Lore - who aided the Entity, towards seeing him as the last remnants of the child she lost, even going so far as to request he read her son's diaries... in ''his'' voice (Data, being the EmotionalEmotionlessPerson he is, doesn't realise the psychological ramifications of this until it's way too late.)

** Tywin tells Arya that she reminds him of Cersei when she was young, and something in his voice makes it sound like he regrets how things went. In the books, he and Cersei were originally quite close, but a series of events including Tywin failing to get her married to Rhaegar Targaryen and instead marrying her to Robert strained their relationship to the point it's at now.

* ''Series/OneLifeToLive'': Within weeks after the stillbirth of her nearly term son, Cassie Carpenter found an abandoned baby in the manger scene of the town church (her husband was the local minister) and instantly declared that she was going to adopt him, even naming him "William", as she had intended to name her late son, clearly latching on to the new baby as a replacement for him. But when the birth mother came forward and changed her mind, the stress of the near-simultaneous loss of two babies triggered a nervous breakdown in which Cassie became convinced that the babies were one and the same.

* ''Series/TrailerParkBoys'': In a recent season, Ricky decided to get a pet goldfish. Unfortunately, since Ricky is not the sharpest of knives, he thinks it's okay to share drugs and liquor with "Orangey". This sets off a panicked search by his friends to replace Orangey before Ricky realizes he's dead (they even bribe a veterinarian receptionist to claim that he's drunk and passed out). Later, we find that Bubbles has amassed a large stock of replacement goldfish, and replacing the latest Orangey has apparently become a common routine for him.
