** Somewhat tragically, from what little we see of Nora [[spoiler:before she goes into Vault 111 with her husband and is cryogenically frozen only to be murdered by Kellogg]], she has an awful lot in common with [[HotScoop Piper]]. Dark, elegant hairstyle? Check. Solving her problems with a quick wit? Check. Encouraging and coddling a partner who tries to help others and making witty remarks about {{Jerkass}}es? ''Check''.

* In the Nintendo DS game ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheCuriousVillage'', [[spoiler:Lady Dahlia is a robot, like everyone else in St. Mystere except for Flora. She was created by Baron Reinhold to be a replacement for his dead wife. However, her existence as a replacement for the dead wife was so traumatic to his daughter that he had the robot's memory wiped and the Lady Dahlia personality created instead.]]

* Played for serious drama in ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' Season Two with Kenny, who bonds with Clementine and Alvin Jr. as a replacement for his lost son. [[TearJerker He even mistakenly calls Clem by his son's nickname "Duck" over a meal at one point]]. On the flipside, however, his bond with these two is what gives him the will to keep living.

* ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'': At first Joel sees Ellie as a means to an end, and nothing more. As the game progresses, the two bond, and eventually Joel begins to think of Ellie as his surrogate daughter ''[[spoiler: his real daughter Sarah was killed 20 years ago in the game's prologue, and Joel has been trying to bury her memory]]''. He even calls her "baby girl" ''[[spoiler: Like he called Sarah]]'' and ''[[spoiler: forcibly ends a firefly attempt to cure the fungus by performing a lethal experiment on Ellie]]''.

* ''SilentHill'' example: [[spoiler:Maria]], who was born from [[spoiler:James' wish to be with his dead wife Mary.]]
** In ''SilentHill3'', Heather is, in a way, a ReplacementGoldfish for Cheryl. Slightly different in the fact that she [[spoiler:is the reincarnation of Cheryl and Alessa (who were originally one person to begin with. At the end of the game, she starts going by Cheryl again.]]

* In the ''{{Pokemon}}'' fandom, some consider [[GirlyGirl Lyra]] to be this to [[{{Tomboy}} Kris]], even going as far as to refer to one of the ships involving the former as Replacement Shipping (Ethan x Lyra).
* Done subtly, but very creepily in ''{{Robotrek}}'' on the SNES. Nagisa is an android created by the protagonist's father to look after him. She's also modeled to look like his dead wife, something you can easily miss via dialogue until a flashback midway through the game shows the protagonist's mother.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'', Velvet liberates a young Malak from the Exorcists, eventually giving him her deceased younger brother's name of Laphicet due to him reminding her of him. He manages to draw out the soft side of her personality that had buried been beneath her hate and despair some years ago.

He also calls her out on this trope and goes on to [[DefiedTrope defy]] it by being his own person.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', when [[BenevolentPrecursors Titans]] AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, their servants, the Tainted Coil, tried to create new masters for themselves to serve. However, like everything they made, their creation, [[spoiler: known as Humans]], became only a pale copy of what their masters could accomplish. The knowledge that their [[HappinessInSlavery beloved masters]] were well and truly gone drove them insane with rage and grief, that they vented on their creation.

* Likely unintentional, but in ''HarvestMoon: Animal Parade,'' if you decide to start a [[NewGamePlus new game]] when your child recently grew up, your spouse might suggest to have a second child before your first leaves on their journey (although, you can't continue your file after they leave anyway, sooo...).

** Way before that, in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars3'', [[Anime/GetterRobo Benkei Kuruma]] was this for Musashi Tomoe. After Musashi was killed in a HeroicSacrifice, Professor Saotome called in Benkei to replace him after unveiling the Getter Robo G. Ryouma and Hayato were ''not'' please in the least, but the two end up warming up to the pilot, and in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4'', they go and teach him Musashi's signature attack so that they're at the same level.
