    Arrow Clone, Robot, or Long-Lost Twin

    "Taking all bets! I also offer video poker!"

    Credit to Futurama for the quote.

    Anyways, I found this article on Anime News Network today and thought it would make an interesting topic.

    Which characters do you find look disturbingly similar?

    If it comes down to looks, I'd have to choose Mayuko and Orihime if we're only considering looks. Trowa and Yang also look really similar but I don't really think the other characters look that much like each other especially Kyou & Ryou and Kagami & Tsukasa.

    Kyou and Ryou from Clannad, and Tsukasa and Kagami from Lucky Star.

    EDIT: Ok, if I read your article before posting I would have seen the they were mentioned, but I have another.

    i don't really count lucky star characters since they're SUPPOSED to be parodies of other popular characters. :x

    i always thought vash the stampede from trigun and alucard from hellsing looked alike. i blame their coats though.

    In the back of volume 1 of Hellsing, Kohta Hirano (Hellsing's mangaka) mentioned that some of the fans complained that Alucard looked too much like Vash.

    They both wear red coats and shades but personality wise, the two are completely different.

    i haven't actually seen trigun yet so i wouldn't really know about vash's personality.

    The problem with that is that Lucky Star was released only a few months before Clannad, and even then there isn't a big enough release date between the two for them to influence each other.

    Think of Alucard. Now picture the exact opposite of his personality.

    Yes, yes, we all read the article(hopefully >_>).

    Ko from Hanasaku Iroha

    Nope, both have different production companies.

    Every pretty boy in every shoujo anime and manga. I swear, it's like it's a universal rule to use the same body shapes and facial structures.

    Aki Izayaoi from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's and Kallen Stadtfeld from Code Geass. have always been eerily similar to me.

    So many characters look like L from Death Note (insert spoiler here). I'm just too lazy to look up their names.

    Salim Bradley/Pride from FMA:B and Chezlaw Meyer from Baccano! look a lot alike, in my opinion.

    first off, kudos for the futurama reference.

    i think i read somewhere that alucard's wardrobe was somewhat derived from vash's red coat and shades, i agree that personality wise, the couldn't be further apart.

    Otonashi Yuzuru from Angel Beats and Light Yagami from Deathnote.

    Makoto from School Days and Nara from School Rumble. (Kind of iffy, but whatevers)

    Kotonoha's little sister from School Days and Tenma Tsukamoto from School Rumble.

    (I can't believe I ended up spoiling myself with School Days, as a result for searching up pictures to make sure they look alike. Must forget!) =[

    Looking for Pokémon X exclusive Megastones (Charizard X, Mewtwo X, Tyranitar, and Manetric).

    Giriko from Bleach and King Bradley from FMA.

    For some reason Luffy from One Piece and Natsu from Fairy Tail look alike, its the face structure really.

    I think I could hazard a guess at that reason.

    Never mention that in front of a Fairy Tail fanboy, you'll be tormented by their blind denial of the truth! The reason why the 2 casts (compare some of the other characters and you'll know what I mean) look so alike is the fact that they were both influenced heavily by Akira Toriyama. That and the fact that Hiro Mashima was Eiichiro Oda's pupil.

    As a Fairy Tail fanboy, I take offense to that. I noticed the similarities right away.

    Come to think of it, Shanks looks like he could be Natsu's father. Awesome crossover event, anyone?
    Pokemon Y Friend Code: 3282-3535-2249

    Friend Safari: Pansage, Petilil, Gogoat

    As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.

    Well majority of them can get out of hand.

    Anyways, all of the characters in Girls Bravo have the same face.
