* 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''.

* 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.

* Actually averted in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', [[spoiler: Cid did ''not'' create the Warrior of Light to replace Chaos as his surrogate son]]. He only created him to see if he could create another "perfect Manikin" like [[spoiler:Cosmos]].

** 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.
