%% This list of examples has been alphabetized. Please add your example in the proper place. Thanks!
%% Before adding examples, check the guidelines in the Expy cleanup thread (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13983140170A37263400) and make sure your example fits the criteria to qualify as an Expy. Don't just list minor or coincidental similarities. Also, explain why the character is an Expy - don't just say "X is an expy of Y" and leave it at that.

* Doctor Linksano from WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall is one for Doctor Insano from WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment. Justified in that Linkara created Linksano, because he felt bad about asking Spoony to play Insano for him over and over. And of course it's also lampshaded because he is Insano's counterpart from alternate reality.
* ''WebAnimation/BrokenSaints'' has two villainous blond [[SociopathicSoldier lieutenants]] named Charles and Bravado. Between the names and the haircuts, there is something [[Franchise/StreetFighter very, very familiar about them...]]
* Given the premise of the show, ''WebVideo/CoyleCommand'' takes a lot of its characters from ''GIJoe''. There is Coyle Commander (Cobra Commander), Anni (Destro), Countess Crossland (TheBaroness), and COMMANDO (G.I. Joe itself)
* Dr. James Zanasiu, main character of the ''Roleplay/DarwinsSoldiers'' [=RPs=] is an expy of James Miardian, the scientist from the first RP that James's creator ever played: ''The Spreading Hazard''.
** Dr. Bailey, who first appeared in the rebooted Furtopia RP, was an expy of Dr. Shelton from the Gang of Five [=RPs=], after the latter showed how useful it was to have a [[NonActionGuy non-action]] tech guy around.
* The Website/{{Deviantart}} group Website/EarthG is made of these who are DC superhero [[{{Expy}} expies]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Visually, Izane resembles [[Anime/MetalFightBeyblade Kiyoya.]]
* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Boo is an Expy of [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom the Box Ghost.]] He is an EvilIsHammy HarmlessVillain with a similar voice.
* Breeze Rider from ''WebAnimation/DusksDawn'' is this to Rainbow Dash, both being able to fly, cracking jokes and having a strong sense of adventure.
** He is also definitely trying to be a lot like Pinkie Pie by providing goofy (attempted) [[PluckyComicRelief comic relief]] at random times, like popping his head out of a cloud and impossible areas.
* ''Podcast/FalloutIsDragons'' has Blinkie, an expy and possible descendant of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Maud Pie.]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGunganCouncil'', several characters use avatars from the Star Wars films, including C'oringath and Ceel. Others use avatars from the Expanded Universe. Usually, these characters even match their avatar's in personality.
* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''Literature/TheLayOfPaulTwister''. WordOfGod says that Paul was originally conceived as "essentially the Anti-[[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]].
* ''Roleplay/MSFHighForum'':
** Word of Player, Casey comes from a world of super hero and super villain expies. Casey herself intends on becoming one of Cutey Honey
** Jax is also a completely unintentional expy of Ranma, and Tenchi, and several other well known 'middle of the harem' anime characters...
*** Only Jax might end up with the marrying them all.
** Attention everyone! She's here, she's nice, she's friendly...she's a rotten kind of cute, give it up, for the ZOMBIE ENJO KOSAI. Inspired by the song Zombie Prostitute, by Voltaire.
*** Nurse Ottoshanti is an expy of Shantotto from FFXI.
*** Neko was inspired by her player's cat, with a little bit of Gir (Invader Zim) thrown in.
*** Apostate is very explicitly an expy of Durandal from Marathon.
*** Aresu has become an Expy of Keiri.
*** Shiron is an expy of the character Steffan Tommas from the game One Must Fall: 2097.
*** Sony and his world is a obvious Expy of Skies Of Arcadia and he specificly is a combination of Vyse and Gilder.
*** Smash is an expy of none other than Thunk. if a Distaff Counterpart. Also a Flanderization of general Orc traits. In fact, she's played as if she is mentally retarded.
*** Roe is a shoutout of Doc Roe, to some degree. Her insanity and Hair-Trigger Temper have kind of clouded this.Also a shoutout to Tank Dempsey due said temper.
*** Nika is both a Shoutout (See below) and Expy of Nikolai Belinski. Again, obvious.
* ''WebAnimation/MysterySkullsAnimated'' features a cast that is a homage to ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' with their own twists.
* Astholm on Website/NationStates ''appears'' to be an expy of Scotland; or at least, Nottinghamshire, but it's all DependingOnTheAuthor, what with it being a HousePseudonym and all.
* She's still a three-dimensional character and takes inspirations from others too, but WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick is fundamentally an older, more broken ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}''.
* In the early days of ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'' and ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'', each was accused of copying the other- a rage filled video reviewer who critiques children's media. They had a crossover feud, each did a review in the other's style and have remained friends in real life, and each has evolved their character over the years so they are more distinct from each other.
* ''[[http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2986354/The_Saga_of_Pretzel_Bob The Saga of Pretzel Bob]]'' features as its villain a silver-haired man in a black cloak who sets the main character's hometown ablaze and wants to destroy the world... [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII named Seraphoth.]]
* ''WebVideo/SaveTheSupers'' has as its main cast basically a set off Expies of the Justice League: Merman is Aquaman, Elementra is Wonder Woman, World Man is Superman, Morph Man is Plastic Man, Fleet Foot is The Flash, and Night Knight is a (very strange) version of Batman mostly based around his nickname "The Dark Knight". The first episode features a Joker Expy and episode 3 features a Catwoman expy.
* Lord Zet and Nekoneko of the flash series ''WebAnimation/SuperFreakinParodyRangers'' are deliberately obvious Expies of Zetto and Ruri from the creator's earlier work ''WebAnimation/{{TOME}}''.
* A fair amount of characters from ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest''. Occasionally, you will see one of a character from a previous version or the [[Literature/BattleRoyale original canon]] (for example, Melina Frost was clearly at least to some extent inspired by Mariavel Varella of v2, and possibly by extension, Mitsuko from ''Battle Royale''). Other times, you will see ones of characters from other works, [[WriteWhoYouKnow based on people the handler knows]], or are imported from other roleplays the handler has participated in.
* ''[[http://sosshinsei.proboards.com/index.cgi Suzumiya Haruhi no Yaku-Asobi]]'' is full of these. One [[PlotTumor particularly sprawling]] multi-[=RPer=] slider faction known as the [[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction Multiverse Enforcement Bureau]] employs what is practically an alternate SOS-dan, consisting of a long-haired [[ButNotTooForeign half-American]] TriggerHappy Haruhi who's a stickler for keeping things orderly, [[GenderFlip Kyonko]], the person Kimidori Emiri was 'based on' by the aliens (a CuteClumsyGirl), the StudentCouncilPresident from [[GenderFlip Seitenkan]], a ColdSniper Mikuru, and a [[TheMenInBlack Men in Black]]-ish Sasaki. No, really.
* The ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' is full of these, particularly since it's a superhero universe with a SuperheroSchool.
** Champion is clearly an expy of Superman, down to the freezing breath and the heat vision.
** For that matter, Fantastico is an expy of Superboy, complete with the super-strength and the heat vision. Oh, and he might also be a pastiche of George W. Bush.
** Dr. Yablonski is even lampshaded as basically being Batman as a physics teacher.
** Aquerna has squirrel powers, including being able to talk to squirrels and command them. [[ComicBook/SquirrelGirl Who could that be?]]
** Tennyo is [[Anime/TenchiMuyo Ryoko]]. Period.
** Lady Hydra is TheBaroness, although in-universe it is the other way around.
* On the [[Roleplay/Bay12PlayByPostGames Bay12 Forums]], certain players are infamous for using these. Some examples:
** ''Roleplay/Bay12SwordArtOnlineRP'': Shiina and Tzoushi are expies of [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Sachi and Klein]] respectively. The {{Irony}} in Shiina is that she has almost the opposite personality to her base, despite [[CaptainErsatz sharing her appearance]].
** ''Roleplay/Bay12RWBYRoleplay'': Maeve, of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Tharja]].
