* ''Franchise/WonderWoman'': It's obviously a choice considering their shapeshifting capabilities but Deimos and Phobos take care to appear quite identical in their various forms. They cared less about this pre-Flashpoint but seem to enjoy playing up the CreepyTwins angle, they are fear gods after all.

** ''ComicBook/TheLegendOfWonderWoman2016'': Two of the Holiday Girls are the identical twin sisters Milly and Tilly Heyday.


* In ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'', Mukuro Ikusaba and Junko Enoshima are fraternal twin sisters who look enough like each other with the right hairstyle, makeup and clothing that they can pass for each other, a fact used to switch Ikusaba for Enoshima, but there are enough physical differences like Ikusaba's YouthfulFreckles that she has to brush off as being the result of her photographs being retouched when Naegi comments on it. If not using tricks, it's hard to tell that they are twins at all, considering that Enoshima has blond MegaTwintails, round blue eyes, big breasts, and ceramic skin while Ikusaba has short black hair, narrow grey eyes, smaller breasts, and greyish pale skin. And even if Enoshima's blond hair is just dyed, her real hair color (red) would still be different from her twin sister's.

* ''WebVideo/BraveTwins'' is an {{Alternate Universe|Fic}} {{fanvid}} where Merida has a twin named Erin (using Merida's formally dressed design as the other twin). Not only are they identical, but they also have younger identical SameSexTriplets for brothers.


* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Androids 17 and 18 are twins and do have some physical similarities (especially in the way their faces are drawn), but they have different hair colors and wear very different outfits.
* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': It is revealed that there are twelve universes, but they are six pairs of twins. If the sum of their numbers is 13 (1+12, 4+9, 6+7, etc), those pairs are determined as twins. However, it is shown that Universe 7 and Universe 6 aren't identical. While both have a planet Earth, the Earth from Universe 7, which is the home planet of Goku and the others, is still full of life, while the Earth from Universe 6 is devoid of life due to the Earthlings blasting the entire thing in a devastating war.
** Beerus and Champa, who are the Gods of Destruction of their respective universes, are both humanoid, purple cats. But Beerus is skinny, while Champa is fat.

[[folder: Mythology]]
* Castor and Pollux, the twins in Myth/ClassicalMythology who became the constellation Gemini, are usually portrayed as looking identical. However, the standard version of the story says they were actually half-brothers, because Pollux was a demigod, the son of Zeus and Leda, and Castor was the mortal son of Leda and her husband. (They were also actually quadruplets with their sisters Helen of Troy [demigodess] and Cytemnestra [mortal], with the four siblings being hatched from two eggs [because Zeus took the form of a swan]. The myths vary as to how they were distributed, but neither version exactly works -- if the boys are in one egg and the girls in the other, they must be full siblings, but if the mortals are in one and the demigods in the other, they're HalfIdenticalTwins.)

** Eventually, we find out about the ''original'' Mystery Twins, [[spoiler:Grunkle Stan and his brother, Ford]]. They are [[spoiler:[[ThickerThanWater family]], and the fact that they are twins [[ShownTheirWork is correctly shown]], [[TruthInTelevision as such thing can happen in real families]]]]. These two are first assumed be fraternal twins, given certain differences--most notably one having [[spoiler:six fingers on each hand]], despite the fact such thing also can happen to 'identical' twins while one not having it (this is part of the individual evolving of the embryo). However, like Dipper and Mabel, they have enough of a [[spoiler:StrongFamilyResemblance]] to [[spoiler:[[TwinSwitch switch clothes and fool the Big Bad in the finale]]]].
