->'''Troi hologram:''' Cast aside your masks and let me slip into your mind.
->'''Troi:''' ''Muzzle it.''
-->-- ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', "Hollow Pursuits"

A character encounters an "alternate" version of themselves that they greatly dislike. The alternate can be [[OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs a work of fiction]] existing only on a written page or ShowWithinAShow, or a {{Doppelganger}} of some sort ([[CloningBlues Clone]], TimeTravel, AlternateUniverse, etc). The alternate version may be a [[TheWarOnStraw thinly veiled caricature]] that [[{{Flanderization}} exaggerates]] negative qualities or emphasizes neutral or even positive traits in ways the original dislikes, or invents traits whole cloth that [[AdaptationDecay are highly out of character.]] Or maybe they're just TooMuchAlike. The original is likely to become ''very'' angry at the author or the alternate for the real (or perceived) insult.

The "original" may find that ForWantOfANail their alternate version is really annoying, and (if not a fictional creation) the alternate may likewise find the original embarrassing. On the other hand, the alternate may be a much more successful or well developed individual who angers the original by outshining them. Expect at least one of them to say "IResembleThatRemark" and/or "Why didn't anyone tell me [[DoesThisMakeMeLookFat this makes me look fat?]]"

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* In ''ComicBook/HeroSquared'' the "normal" Milo is quite annoyed with the Superhero version of himself from another universe (Captain Valor), and vice versa. Valor is less-than-impressed with Milo's selfishness and complete failure to make anything of his life, whilst Milo resents Valor's smug self-righteousness and over-simplified view of the world and how it works.
* ''ComicBook/TheAuthority:'' while crossing over to a GenderFlipped AlternateUniverse to talk to their counterparts, Jack Hawksmoor's equivalent is visibly pregnant. When asked about how he feels to see himself female and pregnant, he responds that he doesn't want to find out who the father is.
* MarvelComics: In the ''IdentityWars'' miniseries {{Deadpool}}, SpiderMan and TheHulk cross over into an alternate dimension. Spider-Man's alternate version is a WellIntentionedExtremist, which annoys Spidey. Deadpool gets along famously with his alternate until he discovers that alt-Deadpool isn't Wade Wilson, it's [[spoiler:Victor Von Doom]]. Alt-Wade Wilson is a BigBad who Deadpool takes down. Bruce Banner discovers that he can't turn into the Hulk in this dimension and is overjoyed, until that gets reversed. Then alt-Hulk and Hulk duke it out.
** One nice example involving Deadpool has him inventing an imaginary version of himself (aka, he willed himself into having a split personality) while trapped inside a room for over 800 years (long story). Why did he do this? To have someone to play hangman with of course. His plan fails when the imaginary Deadpool turns out to be a genius and starts totally kicking Deadpool's ass in the game.
* In one Disney comic, DonaldDuck's friends and family force him to spend 24 hours with a duplicate of himself, to show him how annoying he is.
* In ''[[ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard Loki: Agent of Asgard]]'', [[spoiler: Seige!Loki]] has nothing but contempt for the new, younger Loki who is on a quest to redeem himself and escape his role as the villain of the tale. When they finally meet face to face, he [[DidYouActuallyBelieve mocks]] younger Loki [[spoiler: and reveals that he will never stop being the villain BecauseDestinySaysSo]].
** Similarly, in ''YoungAvengers'', Loki is haunted by [[spoiler: kid!Loki]] who constantly annoys him by mocking his wicked schemes, deconstructing his motives, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking spouting bad puns]].

[[folder: Fanfic ]]

* It is discussed in PeggySue Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion fic ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry''. Asuka thinks her younger self would hate her if she saw what she has become. Shinji argues she is being too hard on herself, and he mentions his younger self would surely be shocked.
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic ''I Forgot I Was There'' plays this for serious drama: Twilight accidentally brings her reflection to life, and both Twilights severely resent each other from the very beginning. Their petty competition is the main focus of the fic.
* ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' has an episode wherein ThePrankster Socrates is cloned, and he quickly finds his clone to be very irritating.
* ''[[FanFic/NewLookSeries Trunks' New Look]]'' has the titular character babysit his past self, who proceeds to make life hell for him...self.
* Happens with [[spoiler:Maya and Miho]] meet in ''FanFic/TheDimensionhoppers'' (technically they are counterparts of each other).
* In the ''Film/StarTrek'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9795158/1/Written-in-the-Stars Written in the Stars]]'', Fem!Kirk gets the spirit of her counterpart stuck inside her head. [[ShipperOnDeck Hilarity regarding the]] [[HeIsNotMyBoyfriend subject of Spock]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny ensues]].
-->'''Kirk''': Well, excuse me, Miss Know-It-All.
-->'''Kirk Prime''': That's Mrs. Know-It-All to you. Recall I'm a married woman.
-->'''Kirk''': How could I forget? [[TheSpock Your husband's]] a true Mr. Know-It-All.
-->'''Kirk Prime''': It's fun having my sense of humour thrown back at me. If a little annoying.
-->'''Kirk''': Just shut up!
* In the Fanfic/TheInfiniteLoops this is how [[Franchise/SpyroTheDragon Classic Spyro]] and [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro Legend's Spryo]] tend to act around each other.

* Though it happens off screen, the backstory timeline for ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' shows an encounter between two different incarnations of Godzilla. While it is subverted in the sense they aren't the exact same individual, they do have the same powers, similar appearance; and the same title. One is the grown up Godzilla junior from the Heisei series, who is a GentleGiant unless defending what he cares for and goes out of his way to protect humanity. The other is the revived [[Film/GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack 1954 Godzilla]], a ChaoticEvil monstrosity who kills everything in his path. When they met it was this trope turned violent and cranked UpTo11 Take a [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny wild guess how their encounter went]]. [[spoiler: With some aid from Anguirus and Gamera, the Junior killed his predecessor ]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* The movie ''DeconstructingHarry'', where fictionalized characters closely resemble real people but with negative characterization. Anger ensues.
* In the sci-fi thriller ''Film/{{Coherence}}'', different timelines cross due to a TemporalParadox caused by a comet passing earth. This allows characters to meet their counterparts from other realities. One of the characters is shown to be extremely hostile towards his alternate versions, up to the point where he picks a fight with one.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'': "The Seperation". Mean Rachel is totally annoyed by Nice Rachel.
* In the ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'' series both the Greek and Roman pantheons exist, and they can't stand each other. Especially Neptune and Poseidon who are engaged in an eternal turf war for control of the oceans.
* A ''[[Literature/LabyrinthsOfEcho Chronicles of Echo]]'' episode narrated by Max had a mention that in a less pleasant stage of his life he was ready to choke the version of "Sir Max" living in the city rumours.
* The first half of Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''By His Bootstraps'' consists of the interaction between the protagonist Bob Wilson and some of his past and future selves, due to a very convoluted TimeTravel plot. The scene is retold several times, each from the point of view of a different version of Bob -- who consistently thinks his past selves are idiots and his future selves are arrogant pricks. It comes to blows eventually. And this would be the man who [[spoiler: rules the Earth in the future? Diktor, the future dictator Bob considers a jerk and tries to double-cross, is Bob himself]].
* ''LukeSkywalkerAndTheShadowsOfMindor'': There is a great deal of in-universe material about Luke Skywalker, who after all is FamedInStory. He hates all of it, particularly the portrayal of him, which is often infallible and leads to some people he meets assuming he should be just listened to - he ''wants'' them to argue sometimes, point out things he hasn't seen, and so on.
* In [[Literature/LandOfOz The Tin Woodman of Oz]], the Tin Woodman returns to the (now empty) tinworker's house and finds his original, flesh-and-blood [[LosingYourHead head]]. They have a conversation and find they don't like each other.
* ''Literature/{{Pact}}'' stars [[DistaffCounterpart Distaff Counterparts]] Blake and Rose Thorburn, the same person born as a different gender. They're very different from one another-where Blake is impulsive and favors the IndyPloy (with the usual result being DidntThinkThisThrough) Rose is more meticulous, favors [[TheMinionMaster summoning Others to do her bidding]], and is [[BewareTheNiceOnes quicker to escalate to ruthless levels of force.]] Naturally, they don't get along-which causes a lot of problems, because they need to work together in order to survive the [[SinsOfOurFathers many enemies which their family has made over the past seven generations,]] and because they're both [[ManipulativeBastard trained manipulators]] who have a tendency of [[CorneredRattlesnake lashing out violently when backed into a corner.]]
* ''Literature/EmilyTheStrangeStrangerAndStranger'': Both Emilys even call each other 'Other Me' and they definitely annoy each other. Eventually becomes [[EvilMeScaresMe Evil Me Scares Me]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* Vamp Willow in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer.'' She thought the regular Willow was too wimpy, and regular Willow thought Vamp Willow was too skanky and evil.
-->'''Willow:''' It's horrible. That's me as a vampire? I'm so evil, and skanky... and [[HilariousInHindsight I think I'm kinda gay.]] \\
'''Buffy:''' Willow, just remember, a vampire's personality has nothing to do with the person it was. \\
'''Angel:''' Well, actually--''(Buffy [[DeathGlare glares]] at him)'' ...that's a good point.
** In "The Replacement," the Xander who seems to the audience to be regular Xander is annoyed at the suave, confident Xander, but [[spoiler:it is ultimately revealed that they are both the "real" Xander, just split into two distinct forms. One Xander is assertive, self-confident and suave, the other is panicky and self-critical]].
* When Angelus returns on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' we eventually discover how annoying the vampire with a soul is to his alter ego. The fact Angelus had to endure rescuing puppies and listening to Barry Manilow completely drives him up the wall, much to [[DarkActionGirl Faith]]'s amusement.
* ''{{Fringe}}'' - Walter and Olivia do '''not''' like their counterparts in the alternate universe. Walter doesn't like Walternate, because basically, Walternate was hellbent on destroying our universe (and also reminds Walter of how succesful Walter could have been, had he not been institutionalized). Walternate doesn't like Walter because Walter kidnapped his son and caused significant damage to the alternate universe. Olivia doesn't like Fauxlivia because Fauxlivia basically took over her life, committed several murders and slept with Peter, while she was forcibly implanted with Fauxlivia's memories and thought she was her, and Fauxlivia is annoyed with Olivia because Olivia's general demeanor is not as upbeat as Fauxlivia's.
** Both versions of Agent Lincoln Lee, on the other hand, really get along. The main difference between their personalities is that "main" universe Lee is an introvert and a bit nerdy while "alternate" Lee is an extrovert and more confident. They have fun trying to compare their early lives to see what made them turn out so different.
** There is ''a lot'' of variations on this on Fringe due to characters meeting their counterparts. One episode involved hunting down a serial killer with the help of his alternate counterpart (who happened to be an expert criminal profiler). The episode hinged on the ForWantOfANail divergence between the two men.
* [=McGee=], of ''{{NCIS}}'', wrote a novel somewhat based on people he knew. As each member of the team learned about how their counterpart was portrayed, they took offense at the idea. Tim made it ''very'' clear that the fictional versions weren't the same, but almost everyone said [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial methinks thou doth protest too much.]] Except Gibbs, who didn't mind because "Special Agent Tibbs" was [[MemeticBadass awesomeness incarnate]], [[ILoveTheDead did not have sex with cadavers]], and was not shipped with the counterpart of another agent because [[ShipperOnDeck Mcgee thought they'd make a nice couple]].
* ''Series/RedDwarf:'' Cat is pretty excited to meet his alternate dimension counterpart as he thinks it will be a female cat person - it turns out to be a male ''dog'' person.
** Earlier, there is an episode where Rimmer is copied, they annoy each other, and eventually Lister just deletes one.
** Rimmer's ForWantOfANail alternate self, [[TheAce Ace Rimmer]].
* In one episode of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', an alternate universe version of Rodney [=McKay=] appears. This version is charming, extroverted and socially skilled. The regular Rodney ends up disliking him because everyone seems to like him better.
** At the end of the episode Teyla, Sheppard, and Ronan reveal that they weren't terribly fond of the alt-universe Rodney, either.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' has this happen to ''every'' character when they see the Doctor's holoplay "Photons Be Free", since he portrays them as anti-holographic racists. He relents and changes the characters to not be so obviously stand-ins for his real life friends after Tom "revises" the program to paint the ''Doctor'' as an arrogant and unethical JerkAss so he sees how offensive his first draft was.
** There was surprisingly little argument in "Deadlock", because each Captain Janeway knew what the other would do in their situation. The conflict comes in "Endgame", when Captain Janeway meets her future self Admiral Janeway, due to their different experiences and agendas.
** Likewise when the Emergency Medical Hologram meets his identical-looking creator Dr Zimmerman or a diagnostic program based on him. Of course, it doesn't help that Zimmerman is a DrJerk who regards the EMH Mark One as an embarrassing failure.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Hollow Pursuits", the main characters are offended by Lt. Barclay's versions of them in his fantasy holodeck adventure. Troi tells them to relax and just take them as amusing homages, until she happens upon ''her'' alternate self - a soppy "goddess" in love with Barclay. Riker immediately seizes the opportunity for an IronicEcho.
** In the episode "Galaxy's Child", Geordi is excited to finally meet Dr. Leah Brahms, the designer of the Galaxy class engineering systems seen as a hologram in the earlier episode "Booby Trap", as she's here for an inspection. During her visit, she encounters her hologram self, repeating that episode's closing lines [[AccidentalInnuendo "Every time you look at this engine, you're looking at me. Every time you touch it, it's me."]] It goes without saying that she's extremely angry with Geordi.
** "Second Chances" is basically an entire episode of this trope, overlapping with FutureMeScaresMe ''and'' IHatePastMe. Riker discovers that a transporter accident duplicated him seven or eight years ago, he got out, the other him was stranded on a planet they were surveying and there's no telling which of them is the original. Riker is annoyed by the youthful attitudes and social difficulties of the other. The other Riker chafes at seeing the man who had the career he should have had and who gave up the woman he still loves (Troi). Deep Space Nine will eventually reveal that this other Riker went on to join the Maquis terrorist organization to get out from under his own shadow.
* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''. In the MirrorUniverse, Evil!Archer comes across a database listing the achievements of his alternate self as a famous captain, diplomat and explorer. As Evil!Archer is still only NumberTwo on ''Enterprise'' he's furious, and as he lapses into [[SanitySlippage insanity and paranoia]] is taunted by {{hallucinations}} of this alternate Archer, goading him into a reckless grab for power and fame.
* On ''{{Friends}}'', Rachel dates Russ, a guy who's remarkably like Ross. Ross finds him completely annoying, being totally unaware that he's basically criticizing himself.
* This is referenced in ''Series/MurderSheWrote'' where fictionalized characters closely resemble real people but with negative characterization. Anger ensues.
* In an episode of ''Series/StargateUniverse'', Doctor Rush gets sent back in time through "a freak of physics" and warns everyone that the very risky plan they were about to attempt was going to fail miserably. The non-time-travelling Rush (who's been very vocal about the risks inherent in the plan) is very smug about this, to the point of completely disregarding time-travelling Rush's ordeal. Time-travelling Rush is not impressed.
* ''Series/{{Kaamelott}}'': A minor example, where [[TheFool Perceval]] somehow manages to clone himself with Merlin's magic. TheStinger has him introduce the clone to Arthur saying "[[HypocriticalHumor But for some reason, he's a real dumbass.]]"
* ''Series/BabylonFive'': When Dr. Franklin takes a leave of absence to work out his addiction to stims, he embarks on a spiritual exercise inspired by Australian Aboriginals called a "walkabout", [[ItMakesSenseInContext where on the premise that he has lost "himself", he wanders until he runs into himself, and can have a lengthy conversation working out their differences and subsequently reunite with himself again.]] A few episodes later, he gets stabbed in Downbelow, and as he lies bleeding on the verge of death he literally sees "himself"--and that self gives him a ReasonYouSuckSpeech chastising him sternly for always running away from his problems, with this "walkabout" being one more example of that. He later remarks to Garibaldi that he did indeed "run into himself", and found he didn't like him very much.
* On ''{{Dollhouse}},'' [[ReluctantMadScientist Topher]] imprints his personality onto Victor. The two bond a bit fanboying over how hot [[HotScientist Bennett]] is, but when they actually meet the two quickly get on each other's nerves, talking over each other.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' can play this trope straight or avert it, depending on the story. Many multi-Doctor stories feature current and past regenerations bickering with each other.
** Averted in ''The Almost People'' when The Doctor encounters his Ganger copy, whom he helps to ease through the memories of all his past regenerations at once. And then the two of them start doing everything in tandem, to their delight.
** Played much straighter in ''The Day of the Doctor''.
--->'''War Doctor''': You're my future selves?\\
'''10th and 11th Doctors''': '''''YES!'''''\\
'''War Doctor''': Am I having a midlife crisis?
*** As well as:
---->'''11th Doctor''': I demand to be incarcerated in the Tower of London, along with my co-conspirators, Sand Shoes and Granddad.\\
'''War Doctor''': (indignant) ''Granddad?!''\\
'''10th Doctor''': They're ''not'' sand shoes!\\
'''War Doctor''': (glances at 10's feet) Yes, they are.
** The Three Doctors (Featuring the first 3 Doctors), the Five Doctors (Featuring the first 5 Doctors) and the Two Doctors (Featuring the 2nd and 6th Doctors) all had them fighting and bickering amongst themselves, with the Three Doctors being particularly nasty. The Doctor never got along with himself until a mini-episode featured the 10th Doctor meeting the 5th Doctor, where the 10th Doctor treated the 5th as his 'favorite'. It's somewhat fitting that the 5th Doctor is the only one whose ever gotten along with the others, as the 5th Doctor is the only one who lacked the arrogance and utter-self-assuredness that permeated all the other regenerations to varying degrees.

[[folder: Newspaper Comics ]]

* Calvin of ''CalvinAndHobbes'' has had this problem, because he takes ItsAllAboutMe so far that it becomes "it's all about ''this'' me."
** In one story arc, Calvin makes a clone of himself to do his chores for him, but the clone blows him off and goes to play instead. When Hobbes comments that "he's a clone of you all right", Calvin responds "What do you mean? ''This'' guy's a total ''jerk!''"
** When he makes a copy of only his ''good'' side, it works out at first because this one is willing to do all the work, but eventually they come to blows over whether they should be nice to Susie, whom the good side openly admits to having a crush on.
** And when Calvin travels to the future to get his done homework from his future self, three different versions of him end up fighting over which of them should have done the homework. Totally averted with Hobbes in the same story, as his egotism is of a sort that gets along with itself. "You're right, as always, Hobbes."
** Bill Watterson states, "I think we all would be horrified to meet a double of ourselves and find out what everybody else already knows about us."

[[folder: Other Media ]]

* In the BigFinishDoctorWho audio adventure "The Shadow of the Scourge" the Doctor states that inside of his mind sometimes other regenerations (both future and past) show up in "dire times" but all they ''can'' do is turn up their noses at the way he runs things. This is presumably true of all Doctors.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''[='=]s Perpetual Testing Initative DLC, Cave Johnson is annoyed by most of his alt-universe counterparts, calling them 'backwater universe yokels' and developing a rivalry with Dark Cave.
** Though the latter case is inverted later on:
--->'''Cave Prime''': ''[laughs]'' Oh, Dark Cave, you are the only one around here who gets me.
* In ''FateStayNight'', [[spoiler:Even though he is unaware of his true identity, Shirou]] has enormous problems getting along with [[spoiler:his future self, Archer,]] on a purely instinctual level (although the great personality differences may have something to do with it too). The future version, on the other hand, has some ''very'' well thought-out reasons for [[IHatePastMe despising the other]].
* In the ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable'' games, Nanoha and Fate are shown to get along really well with [[TheSpock Stern]] and [[BoisterousBruiser Levi]], their [[PureMagicBeing Material]] duplicates, despite the fact that their copies have completely opposite personalities from them. Hayate and Lord Dearche on the other hand... hoo-boy. Before becoming allies, Hayate considered her CardCarryingVillain of a twin to be an utter pest while Lord Dearche completely despises Hayate's very being. After becoming allies however, Hayate tries to connect with her duplicate much like Nanoha and Fate did, while Lord Dearche... still hates everything related to Hayate, so Hayate alternates between trying to become friends with her and outright {{Troll}}ing her.

[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* In Kate Beaton's ''HarkAVagrant'' normal [[TheWatson Watson]] is displeased to learn of Stupid!Watson, the Flanderized version of himself that SherlockHolmes is now partners with.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', [[spoiler:Haley's]] [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0382.html mental representations]] argue amongst each other during her time with aphasia.
* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' amorphs [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2009-05-21 ran into]] a problem with [[RealityIsUnrealistic the TV version of them]]:
-->'''Schlock''': The TV-me is putting me-me out of a job. [...] Maybe we can kill another TV network. Is there still money in that?
* ''SluggyFreelance'' features an access to a potentially infinite number of alternative dimensions, so there are opportunities for this.
** {{Inverted}} in "Torg Goes to Hell": ZoŽ and Riff accidentally rescue the wrong Torg from another dimension -- one who speaks only Portuguese. When their Torg returns, he tries to communicate with this alternative version of himself using a phrase book, but only comes up with sentences in the lines of (according to Babelfish) "For the Mondays, I am a shoe." Eventually, the "Portuguese" Torg swipes the phrasebook from his hands and tries himself:
--> '''Portuguese Torg''': "Are.... you... a... a... embezzle?"
--> '''Torg''': "''Embezzle?'' Embezzle means to steal from a company or boss! I'm a freelance web designer, so I don't have a boss! Why?"
--> '''Bun-bun''': "The word is pronounced "Imbecile.""
--> '''Portuguese Torg''': "''Ahh!''"
** In "That Which Redeems", Torg encounters another version of himself who turns out to be a complete jerk, to the point of not going to [[spoiler: his girlfriend's, or possibly wife's, funeral, on the basis that he can get any woman now that he's a big "hero"- as well as that he was brought as a ReplacementGoldfish for that universe's Torg.]] In response to this, "our" Torg clubs him over the head with a serving-tray.
** In "4U City Red", [[spoiler: Riff]] meets an old grumpy alternative-dimension-version of himself that's basically the same as he, except older and grumpier. They really annoy each other, especially the young one the old one, though there is some grudging respect by the end at least.
* Dirk of ''{{Homestuck}}'' later grows to really hate the AR, an artificial intelligence cloned from his own brain and which has in the meantime developed in his own weird way. (Into a {{Troll}}, mostly.) Though unusually, what Dirk hates about him isn't that he's so different to him, but rather that AR is really an exaggerated version of himself, putting all of his personality flaws into perfect view.
** Defied in the case of Davesprite. Considering how much the rest of the cast tend to get smacked in the face with irony whenever they try to change the timeline for the better, it's notable that the future Dave's motivation for prototyping himself with the present Dave's sprite - to give himself a sprite "that doesn't make me want to flog myself with my own brainstem" (as opposed to [[DemonicDummy Calsprite]]) - was an unmitigated success.
** ...and then played 100% straight with [[spoiler: Jadesprite]] upon her prototyping.
** Though each is only slightly "alternate," Karkat hates versions of himself from different points of his own timeline.
* ''WebComic/DragonBallMultiverse'': Bra from U16 and Bra from U18 find each others lives (an incredibly powerful and dedicated warrior, and a irresponsible teen uninterested in training) a total waste.

* ''RedVsBlue:'' while exploring Caboose's mind as a ghost, Church encounters Caboose's mental image of Church and is incredibly annoyed by him.
** Later, Epsilon[[spoiler:-Church]] remarks that Alpha[[spoiler:-Church]] and the Director are each "kind of a dick". This, despite literally [[spoiler:being a copy of them]].
* There was a battle between CourtneyLove's 2 twitter feeds. The first one was the official feed managed by a ghost writer, the other was a private feed under a NomDePlume. Courtney got enraged when the official feed started publishing polite things, and she published not-so-polite things about the official feed on her private feed.
* ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'' had the title character of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' get irritated with the whiny Spidey from the 2000s Film/SpiderManTrilogy.
* ''Website/SFDebris'': Whenever Parody Janeway comes face to face with herself, she gets annoyed...[[BelligerentSexualTension and aroused]].

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* [[PlayedForDrama A very dark version]] appears in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. Lemongrab has obvious self-esteem issues and appears to harbor a lot of self-loathing. He later meets an exact clone of himself, and they start off as very close friends, for over a year. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, Lemongrab begins to grow annoyed by his counterpart, and this frustration soon spirals into full-blown loathing. He later [[spoiler:tortures and devours]] his clone, much to the horror of everyone who witnesses this.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the Gaang attend a play about themselves only to find that everyone except Toph hates their theatric counterparts.
** And Sokka, once he helps the actor "improve" the show's humor.
* One episode in ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' had Fred wrongfully take the credit for a heroic act, only to have Wilma find out the truth and confront him with her disgust, ending with "I just hope you can live with yourself!" Suddenly, Fred is bothered by a duplicate of himself, who's even more annoying than he is, eating his food, telling bad jokes, and pulling nasty tricks like giving him an exploding cigar. After only a short time, Fred admits he ''can't'' live with himself, tells the duplicate to scram, and then confesses to everyone that Barney is the actual hero.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond,'' Terry takes Bruce to see ''Batman: The Musical'' for his birthday. Terry finds the jolly, musical Batman to be great fun. Bruce is...not impressed.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', oh so many times.
** The most notable is in Triple Trouble, when Odd is split into three. They fight over who gets to go to lunch, and who has to go to PE class. They also ruin a joke by inadvertently repeating it.
** Another example is in X.A.N.A.'s Kiss. Odd complains to the clone he's fighting, telling it that if it's going to keep changing form, it should turn into a wimp next time. Its next form: Odd. In Revelation, another Polymorphic clone pulls a similar move on Ulrich, this time for strategy rather than mockery.
* Towards the end of the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' episode ''WesternAnimation/DuckAmuck'', [[CameraScrew the frame shifts, leaving Daffy's top half on the bottom and bottom half on the top...]] inadvertently cloning Daffy. The two Daffys quickly [[TalkingToHimself start arguing with each other]]:
-->'''Bottom Daffy:''' ''Now'' what?!
-->'''Top Daffy:''' What are you doing down there?
-->'''Bottom Daffy:''' Down here? What are you doing up there? ''(to audience)'' Down hereó
-->''(Top Daffy snatches Bottom Daffy into the top frame, which then re-centers)''
-->'''Daffy Prime:''' Listen, bub, if you wasn't me, I'd smack you right in the puss!
-->'''Daffy Prime:''' Don't let ''that'' bother ya, Jack!
-->'''Daffy Prime:''' ''([[ExactWords winding up]] a punch)'' Okay, buddy, you asked for it!
-->''(Daffy Clone gets erased just before Daffy throws his punch, making him miss wildly.)''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has the main characters travel to an alternate dimension where the characters meet their counterparts and find them annoying despite being almost identical. Except for Bender, who being an [[ItsAllAboutMe egomaniac]] gets along with his counterpart just fine. The others eventually warm up to their duplicates, too.
** Then there was that time they went to the end of the universe and looked across to see their alternate, cowboy hat-wearing selves. Bender got tired of his alternate self flaunting the hat and decided to leave.
** [[spoiler: Fry hating Lars in ''[[Recap/FuturamaM1BendersBigScore Bender's Big Score]]'' is a play of this trope. Lars is a time travel-clone of Fry except he is 10 years older and more mature as well as having a very different appearance as a result of work and a fire. Fry's antagonism seems to be mainly centered on him marrying Leela.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TurtlesForever'', this is the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 2003!Turtles]]'s (Especially Raphael and except for Michelangelo) reaction towards the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 80s!Turtles]], who are much sillier and less serious in comparison. This is taken UpToEleven with the [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage Mirage!Turtles]], whose immediate reaction to seeing ''both'' versions is Kill-On-Sight.
** [=2003!Shredder=] also views his 80s counterpart to be a bumbling fool who isn't worth dealing with. On the flip side, [=80s!Shredder=] was initially overjoyed to have found a competent counterpart who could help to finally rid him of his hated enemies.
* Weird variation in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark:'' a giant dragon summoned by overuse of the word "shit" has Cartman's voice - when it's defeated, Cartman says "What a lame voice..."
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', a character named [[SdrawkcabName nosyarG kciD]], (an {{Expy}} of Bat Mite, a GreatGazoo from the comic books who [[{{Fanboy}} idolizes]] Batman), who is Robin from an alternate dimension, comes to try to help Robin heal his broken arm, but Robin doesn't quite enjoy this encounter. His double is massively incompetent, which doesn't help smooth things over.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Pinkie Pie makes copies of herself. Her duplicates are obliviously and single-mindedly focused on having fun, to the exclusion of all else -- an accusation frequently leveled at Pinkie herself -- and it turns out to annoy Pinkie just as much as it does everyone else.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': The whole premise of [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbTheMovieAcrossThe2ndDimension the made-for-TV movie]] is that the main cast travels to another dimension. While Doofenshmirtz is initially on good terms with his alternate dimension counterpart, it doesn't take long for Doof-2 to realize that Doof-1 is [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} absolutely clueless]] and after having the Otherdimensionator built decides he wants nothing to do with him.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Steven uses a time-traveling device to create several time copies of himself for a band. They get along at first, but have a disagreement when the original starts trying to designate each copy as a specific role ("the funny one", "the smart one", etc), and calls them annoying. They eventually start a fight that goes through at least four different areas in spacetime and gathers many more clones.
