* In ''Manga/InuYasha'', Byakuya comes in after Kagura's death and not only looks and acts like her, but has similar powers and plays the same role that she played. * In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Sai, the quiet, serious and emotionally distant ninja replaced Sasuke, the quiet, serious and emotionally distant ninja. It doesn't help that they look so similar, either. Much like Sasuke during the early arcs, Sai's rocky friendship with Naruto and Sakura has slowly eroded his stoicism. ** The similarities between Sai and Sasuke have been lampshaded in-series. During his introduction this was played for drama, with Naruto and Sakura openly hostile at Sai attempting to replace Sasuke. Afterward it was played for comedy, such as Konohamaru's use of both Sai and Sasuke in his male version of the Sexy Jutsu.

there is nothing similar between Clemont/May and Bonnie/Max other than "lol siblings" as even their interaction is different along with their personalities, same thing with Serena
** For the X and Y saga, we are introduced to Clemont and Bonnie, who are a lot like May and Max but with their birth order reversed, also Serena, who appears to be a bit like May or Dawn.
