Added DiffLines:

* In the Modern AU ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13122923/1/Confusion Confusion]]'', Astrid and her OC twin sister Lillian can generally be told apart with relative ease, with Astrid being the more physical of the two while Lillian is more intellectually focused, but they pretend to be each other at least once without changing clothes when only Hiccup is able to distinguish the two.

* Patty and Selma Bouvier on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Selma's hair is parted, Patty's is not. Patty parted hers in one episode as part of a plan to break Selma and Abe apart. It failed when the real Selma showed up while Patty was tricking Abe.

* In ''Webcomic/EnnuiGo'', Izzy and her twin sister Adelie can be told apart by the fact that Izzy dyes her hair pink , and when Izzy ends up getting cloned, the clone dyes the tips. [[spoiler:The distinction is taken further when Izzy gets a star shaped tattoo on her left shoulder to cover a bullet scar.]]]

** Hashim and Xoltan can also be told apart by hair color and scars, with Hashim having black hair and three slashes over his right eye, and Xoltan having white hair and one slash over his left eye.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': The clone troopers, being genetically identical, use different hairstyles, facial hair, tattoos and scars to differentiate themselves, and often customize their armor with designs of their choice. In addition, while they all have the same voice actor, their voices often vary slightly in tone or even accent.


* This trope is inverted in both versions of ''Film/TheParentTrap'', with the identical twins starting out easily identifiable by hairstyle, choice of clothing, and accents. When they decide to do the swap to try to get their parents back together, they make adjustments so that they ''are'' indistinguishable.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'': Flotsam and Jetsam may or may not be twins, but they look exactly alike except for one thing which isn't that noticeable; both have one yellow eye and one white eye. For Flotsam, his left eye is yellow while his right eye is white. For Jetsam, it's the other way around.


* Kodama and Obariyon of the Batiri in Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}} aren't twins, and aren't even related, but look close to identical due to having the same height, build, skin tone, hair, gear, etc., along with similar facepaint and tattoos. Commentary tends to have trouble distinguishing between them, but there are differences: their facepaint designs are distinct, Kodama has some tattoos in places Obariyon doesn't, Obariyon has a slightly softer physique, and in late 2015 Obariyon got a shorter haircut.

* In ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'', [[http://sssscomic.tumblr.com/post/151251791300/well-well-somehow-i-finished-drawing-todays The author drew a picture of main character Mikkel with his twin brother Michael]]. Michael doesn't wear Mikkel's sideburns, is much better at the whole smiling thing (the corners of Mikkel's mouth tend to come across as physically unable to bend upwards in th comic proper) and is technically the oldest according to the picture's description.

* Takuma and Kazuma Mamizuka from ''Manga/GakuenBabysitters'' can usually be told apart by their expressions; Takuma is [[PerpetualSmiler always smiling]] while Kazuma is [[FragileFlower always teary-eyed]]. They also tend to wear matching but differently-colored outfits, with Takuma usually wearing cool colors and Kazuma usually wearing warm colors, as well as shirts with the first letters of their names on them when they're at home.

* In the WWE fanfic, ''The Return - Remixed", the Wrestling/BellaTwins got one from DEAR after nearly beating them in a tag team match via Twin Magic. To make sure it didn't happen again, the other members of DEAR held them still while Wrestling/{{Victoria}} punched them in the face with a set of brass knuckles, giving them mismatching black eyes. Brie got it in the left eye, Nikki in the right.

Added DiffLines:

*Wrestling/BruiserBrody once had a match against The Mexican Twin Devils, who were pulling the Twin Switch routine through the match. Then Don Diamond ran out and poured flour in the hair of one of the Devils, with Brody pinning that one for the win.


* A variation in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''. Twilight Sparkle crosses from Equestria into the human world and assumes a human form. Later a Twilight who actually is native to the human world surfaces. We tell the difference between the two because human Twilight has glasses and wears her hair tied back in a bun.

**
Twilight Sparkle crosses from Equestria into the human world and assumes a human form. Later a Twilight who actually is native to the human world surfaces. We tell the difference between the two because human Twilight has glasses and wears her hair tied back in a bun. The two later interact in Equestria during ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsSpringBreakdown Spring Breakdown]]'', where they can be differentiated because human Twilight still has glasses while pony Twilight has wings.
** At the end of ''Spring Breakdown'', all of the Humane Seven plus Bulk Biceps, Derpy, Lyra Heartstrings, and Flash Sentry are shown in Equestria in pony forms. Of the 11, only Flash Sentry plays this straight, lacking his pony self's Royal Guard armor. The others are indistinguishable from their pony counterparts.
