* [[OlderThanTheyLook Lisa]], SupportingProtagonist of the ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' fanfic ''[[LookingFromTheOutsideIn Looking from the Outside In]]'', is an Expy of Alice from ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''. Both are blue-eyed girls with bright blond hair learning about something they don't understand.
* ''[[{{Fanfic/AceCombatTheEquestrianWar}} Ace Combat: The Equestrian War]]'' has the foreign pegasi aces being potrayed similarly to their originals from [[{{AceCombat04}} video]] [[{{AceCombat6}} games]].
* In ''Fanfic/ADifferentLesson'', the Wu Sisters start out as this of [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Ozai's]] [[FanNickname Angels]], with Xiu standing in for Azula, Chun as Mai, and Jia as Ty Lee. They aren't exact copies, but the author does have a fair amount of fun with this, and they drop a lot of familiar lines. They also end up growing and developing as characters in their own right.
* The ''{{Homestuck}}'' fancomic ''Webcomic/BeTheSeaDwellerLowblood'' has [[OurTrollsAreDifferent troll]] versions of the B1 kids (including bro, though not really a "kid"), SweetBroAndHellaJeff characters, the Midnight Crew, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] {{Deadpool}}. They're all renamed to fit the six-letter troll name limit and to just sound more trollish. For example, Rose Lalonde becomes Rhosyn Lalond, Sweet Bro becomes Suweet Broski, etc.
* The ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' ElsewhereFic ''FanFic/BoyScoutsOneHalf'' follows mostly a cast of original characters, although some of them are obvious expies of characters from the original work.
** The Porter sisters are expies of the Tendo Sisters, with Sarah being the [[{{Tsundere}} tsundere]] love interest of the main character (like Akane), Kirstin being the cooking and cleaning caregiver (like Kasumi), and finally Nicole being the money lover with questionable principles (like Nabiki). This is [[{{LampshadeHanging}} lampshaded]] with the first names of Kirstin and Nicole starting with the same letters as those they are expies of.
** Despite being based on a real person, as a large chunk of the ''Boy Scouts ˝'' cast is, the character of Derek Provost is also an expy of Happosai.
** Taylor Kuntz shares his initials with Kuno Tatewaki and is basically what you would get if you took away Kuno's pretension of class.
** And oddly, in a case not based on ''Ranma ˝'', the character of Justy Yung is an expy of Jinnai Katsuhiko from [[{{Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld}} El-Hazard]]. This was even [[{{LampshadeHanging}} lampshaded]] in Universe when some of the other characters were watching that show and thought Jinnai seemed familiar.
* ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'': [[KillerRobot Shadow]] is this to [[MoralityDial Evil!Jack]]. The LemonyNarrator even {{lampshades}} it.
* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'', Kit Bennett, alias [[spoiler:Kathy Watson]], is clearly an expy of River Song. The parallels aren't in full, but dang if they don't go far, with everything about Kit in her introductory episode echoing many elements of River throughout her tenure on ''Series/DoctorWho''.
* ''FanFic/ClashOfTheElements'': Appearance-wise, [[spoiler: Save for the metallic arms]], [[spoiler: Alpha]] is one to [[{{UltimateMarvel}} Ultimateverse Nick Fury]], which surprisingly doesn't look ridiculous despite the fact that he is a [[spoiler: Goomba]]
* [[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau Chatyoance's]] work has Blackmesh Security, a pretty obvious expy of Blackwater USA.
* ''Fanfic/CurseOfTheDemonPony'' has Boris, who is basically a ponified, [[FantasticRacism fantastically racist]] [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]] with some [[WesternAnimation/TheCurseOfTheWereRabbit Victor Quartermaine]] and [[Film/BackToTheFuture Biff Tannen]] thrown in. The author even uses some of the same lines from each of their movies for his dialogue!
** His minions Boxco and [[UnfortunateNames Dum Dum]] are exactly like [=LeFou=] (Gaston's henchman) and Biff's gang, with a little [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Snips and Snails]] thrown in.
* FanFic/DuelNature features occasional scenes with [[CSIMiami Horatio Mane]], complete with the expected QuipToBlack style of dialogue
* ''FanFic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' has Nabby, an Expy of the [[ComicBook/TheSmurfs comic book version]] of Greedy since Greedy is still the village chef as in [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs the cartoon show]]. The Psyche Master is basically one for [[Film/{{Tron}} the MCP]], and Traveler is one for Waverider from DC Comics' ''{{Armageddon 2001}}''. Duncan [=McSmurf=], on the other hand, is more of a CaptainErsatz of Gutsy from ''Film/TheSmurfs'' film series.
* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], in an InUniverse example, the Griffon nation has the uncanny trait of ripping off its more popular Equestrian counterparts, notably when it comes to its [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct books, companies,]] or even ponies themselves, with their dubious (yet admittedly, probably non-existent) answer to Shining Armor, [[CaptainErsatz Shining Amour]].
* Because of the WholePlotReference to VideoGame/SuperPaperMario, the villains of ''FanFic/TheEndOfEnds'' are expies to the villains of that game.
** Count Logan has Count Bleck’s hat and backstory [[spoiler: albeit less impactful and despairing as Bleck’s]]. He also shares Slade’s mask, though chromed.
** His three minions are expies of Bleck’s own minions and named after some of the goons from ''Series/WhereInTimeIsCarmenSandiego''. Kamica and Madeva are ones to Starfire and Raven respectively.
** Dr. Beljar is one of Dimentio. [[spoiler:Knowing this, Beljar backstabbing Logan was pretty obvious]].
* ''EventHorizonStormOfMagic'' features Westeros and Middle Earth being invaded by a MegaCorp from 22nd century Earth that's more or less an Expy of both [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Weyland-Yutani]], and of the [[NGOSuperpower historical British East India Company]] (but [[RecycledInSpace IN SPAAACE!]]).
* Dr. Beesano from [[http://alaxr274.deviantart.com/gallery/37280372 Hottie 3: The Best Fan Fic in the World]] in an expy of Dr. Insano from WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall.
* Being a FusionFic of ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' and ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' (and overlaps with TransplantedCharacterFic), the characters in ''FanFic/{{Fellowship}}'' are expies of almost all the characters in Digimon Tamers with some changes.
** The exception is Guile, who plays only a little of Renamon's role. His character is initially an {{Expy}} of [[Manga/OnePiece Whitebeard]] and [[Anime/DragonBallZ Son Gohan]], but turns out to be more similar to [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash]].
* Most of the characters in ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn'' are expies. Made most obvious in one of the author's YouTube videos explaining his characters, clearly showing that they are recolors of the original show's cast!
** The Grand Ruler and Lightning Dawn are male versions of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Celestia and Twilight Sparkle]], while Starla Shine is based on [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rarity]]. Lightning's [[spoiler: Enticorn form]] is said to be a combination of a [[Anime/DragonBallZ Super Saiyan]] and an [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Anodite]].
** Krysta is named after the main character of Ferngully and appearance-wise is pretty much Fluttershy with her mane and coat color swapped, and in human form.
** Dyno and Myte are based on Mas Y Menos from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''.
** Rhymey, Abra Kadabra and Goldwin are based on Muffy Mouse, Waldo the Magnificent and Jeff Hyslop from [[TodaysSpecial Today`s Special]].
** Titan is inspired by [[Anime/SailorMoon Wiseman]] and [[CareBears No-Heart]].
** In ''My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic III'', Raven, [[spoiler: Twilight's assassin]], is named and based off the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' character.
* ''Fanfic/RealityIsFluid'': The author's note states that Professor Atani Dukat of the Cardassian Science Ministry was partially based on Emperor Turhan of the Centauri Republic from the ''Series/BabylonFive'' episode "[[Recap/BabylonFiveS02E09TheComingOFShadows The Coming of Shadows]]". Both are members of an enemy culture who are trying to [[TheAtoner atone for their peoples' past crimes]] by apologizing to representatives of those they harmed (Kanril Eleya, a Bajoran captain in Starfleet, in Dukat's case, Ambassador G'Kar of the Narn in Turhan's). The comparison is only partial, however, as Dukat's attempt turns out much better.
* A ''VideoGame/ChronoCross fanfic'' ''FanFic/SearchingForMyMaster'' has Guile. [[CatchPhrase Who the hell do you think he is?]] His character is inspired by [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Guts]] and [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]].
* ''FanFic/TheSecretLifeOfTheBackyardKids'': Jorge is this to Franchise/{{Zorro}}, [[WitchSpecies magical superpowers]] notwithstanding.
* "Fanfic/AenrhienVailiuri" has the merchant freighter ''Axiana'', which the author's notes say was based on ''Serenity'' from ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. Battered old heavily modified freighter with a RagtagBunchOfMisfits crew, including a [[DumbMuscle not-so-bright]] TokenEvilTeammate.
* ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' has a very large number of them, and WordOfGod has confirmed that many of the non-canon characters were based on others in at least some form.
** Dark Tails is an expy of [[VideoGame/MetroidPrime Dark Samus]]. Also, the Quadraxis robot is basically the same as the boss from the same game, except massively upgraded and far more powerful (and vicious). Dark Chaos Energy is also a pretty clear expy of Phazon.
** Along with his obvious parallels to Shadow, Tsali is essentially a more-humanlike [[Franchise/TheTerminator Terminator]].
** According to the author, Venus the Seedrian is a gender-flipped version of Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', with several parallels in their back stories.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tephiroth]] is the most blatantly obvious one, except his character and personality are entirely different. And he's not evil.
** Even the ''ships'' are expies according to WordOfGod - the Dreadnought is based on the [[http://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Machariel Machariel]] from VideoGame/EveOnline, and Maledict's ''Leviathan''-class ships are based on the [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Eclipse-class_dreadnought Eclipse Super Star Destroyer]].
