* 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.

* This becomes glaringly obvious when you play the prequel to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: CrisisCore'', when you realise that all of that cool stuff Cloud did? Zack did it first, and Aeris noticed.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOfTheSky'':
** 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]].
