** Ash's classmates in ''Sun and Moon'' share many elements with his companions from past sagas. For example, Lana is associated with Water-types and is an avid fisherwoman, much like Misty and Sophocles is a GadgeteerGeinus who has an affinity for Electric-types, kind of like Clemont. At the same time though, they have unique traits that set them apart from the character they're generally based on, which makes this a DownplayedExample.

* [[{{Bifauxnen}} Tomboyish]] teen sleuth Masumi Sera from ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' was created as a replacement for Natsuki Koshimizu, a tomboyish one-shot detective from earlier in the series. According to the creator, Masumi was created because Natsuki had become unexpectedly popular with the fans, but the fact that [[spoiler: she killed someone and was subsequently arrested for the crime]] made it impossible to use her in future stories.

Across the various iterations of the franchise, both characters tend to have a similar pattern of being a fat ButtMonkey individual who is prone to injury and death. They're so similar that at least one adaptation cut out the middleman and made the two of them into a CompositeCharacter.

[[Anime/DragonBallZSuperAndroid13 Android 13]] has some vague similarities to Cell, mostly in that he absorbs parts from his "brothers" to assume a more powerful form.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Akira Toriyama planned on having Goku and Vegeta [[FusionDance fuse]] during the Buu Saga; however, at the time ''Anime/DragonBallZFusionReborn'' was about to come out and one of the film's big selling points was the first appearance of Gogeta, result of said fusion. Not wanting to step on Toei's toes, Toriyama created Vegetto, who's created when Goku and Vegeta use a completely different method of fusion. Interestingly, Vegetto seems to have become the "official" fusion, appearing in the manga and ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' while Gogeta remains in the dubious canon territory of ''[[NonSerialMovie Fusion Reborn]]'' and ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' (though of course, both appear in video games).
