Playing With: Evil Twin
Basic Trope: A character has or encounters an evil duplicate.
  • Straight: Bob encounters Kane, his evil twin.
  • Exaggerated: Bob has several evil twins.
  • Downplayed: Bob encounter Kane, his Jerkass twin.
  • Justified: Kane is a clone created by Emperor Evulz to be the perfect enemy of Bob.
  • Inverted: Kane encounters Avel, his good twin.
  • Subverted: Bob's supposedly evil twin turns out not to be evil.
  • Double Subverted: Kane was just playing a mindgame with Bob. He's a monster right to the core.
  • Parodied: Both twins are evil.
  • Zig Zagged: Bob's twin Kane sometimes antagonizes him or commits evil deeds, but at other times he does not seem to be evil at all.
  • Averted: Bob doesn’t have an evil twin.
  • Enforced: The writers want to create a new enemy for Bob, but are convinced he needs to be a much more personal nemesis for Bob than his previous adversaries.
  • Lampshaded: "So you're my evil twin, huh? Then where's your goatee?"
  • Invoked: Someone (perhaps even Bob himself) intentionally uses Applied Phlebotinum to create an evil twin of Bob.
  • Exploited: Bob takes the opportunity of Kane's visit to commit a crime he's always secretly wanted to do, because people will blame his evil twin.
  • Defied: Bob's identical twin is prophesized to become his evil counterpart, so their parents do everything to instill Kane with kindness and good virtues.
  • Discussed: "Bob has just discovered his identical twin. I'm telling you the guy must be evil or something, no way around it".
  • Conversed: "In this episode Bob runs into his evil twin".
