** Deidre does this with the four child protagonists because she is trying to cope with the loss of her son, Ben. [[spoiler:Later, she does the same with Gretchen.]]
** [[spoiler:Solomon lost [[MoralityChain his wife, Sylvia]], and created the robotic Sylvia that you meet during the game as a way to cope. Solomon ends up ''not'' being able to cope despite his efforts, and leaves a saecelium crystal record apologizing for [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman treating Sylvia (the robot) as a replacement for his wife, rather than a person in her own right]].]]

* Somewhat tragically in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', 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''.

** At the end of the game [[spoiler: it's revealed that Shaun, the protagonist's son, is actually "Father", the BigBad of the game. He was released from cryostasis many decades before the player character, brainwashed by the Institute at a young age, and eventually became their leader. Now he is an old man, dying of cancer, and even if the player chooses to side with him and become his successor, they have no more than a few months together. However, he had a synth version of himself as a child made, which he leaves to the protagonist as a gift. The synth does not seem to be aware of what he is and genuinely believes himself to be the protagonist's son, and if you choose to adopt him, the player will respond in kind]].

* 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.

* Invoked by [[TheDragon Bedman]] in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' ''Xrd''. [[spoiler:He kills a Magehound puppy that [[EmotionlessGirl Ramlethal]] befriended and then provides her with a replacement puppy. When this new puppy doesn't bite her finger affectionately like the old one did, he explains that the old one is truly gone forever and cannot simply be replaced. Although this is understandably a heart-rending experience for her, this succeeds in teaching Ramlethal about the value of life and leads to her eventual HeelFaceTurn]].

* In ''RogueGalaxy'', Steve was created as a replacement of sorts for Dr. Pocacchio's son Mark, and apparently has some of Mark's thoughts in his neural network.

* Mona, the protagonist of ''AVampyreStory'', is the latest in a protracted line of ReplacementGoldfish for the villain, Shrowdy von Keifer. After his mother vanished, he went a little goony (well, moreso than usual - the dialog is peppered with implications that even before the Baroness disappeared, Shrowdy was everything wrong with mama's boys) and started kidnapping young women and keeping them in his castle. It's stated once or twice that Mona's been around the longest of all of them because she bears an uncanny resemblance to the missing Baroness.

* In ''VideoGame/XComEnemyUnknown'', when a soldier that you really like is KilledOffForReal, it is sort of common practise for players to take another soldier, then change their name and give them plastic surgery to create a replica.
