** Ness is nearly identical to Ninten, down to the red baseball cap and blue-and-yellow striped shirt. Paula is one of Ana, with them both being cute little girls in pink dresses, and Jeff is a glasses-wearing HollywoodNerd who uses gadgets similar to Lloyd. Averted with Teddy and Poo, who have no real similarities to one another.
