We are so well versed with so many successful characters that when we see a character with similar traits, it doesn’t take us long to notice. So while it can be a total coincidence, here are some characters that we can’t help but compare with certain other characters who had previously made history with their quirks.
FRIENDS AND BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: Chandler and Xander have more in common than having a similar-sounding name. They are both kings of sarcasm and awkward with people.
GOSSIP GIRL AND RIVERDALE: Dan and Jughead both have the “I’m above it all” attitude. They are both awkward and feel like they don’t belong.
GOSSIP GIRL AND YOU: While Joe is murderous, Dan is still just a less dark version of him.
ROBOCOP AND INSPECTOR GADGET: Not just the characters but the entire movies are also very similar.
BREAKING BAD AND WEEDS: Walter and Nancy both do crazy things, saying it is to protect their family.
MATILDA AND CARRIE: The characters of Matilda and Carrie are similar in so many aspects. From horrible school lives to abusive parents, they both have lived the same life.
THE INCREDIBLES AND SPIDERMAN-FAR FROM HOME: Syndrome and Mysterio both hate certain superheroes after not getting noticed by them. Therefore, they both use their tech to feel like heroes and to bring their ‘rival’ heroes down.
HIGH SCHOOL MUSIAL AND JUMP IN: The resemblance between Troy and Izzy is so evident that you can see it for yourself.
HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL AND JUMP IN: The dads of the former characters are also very similar. They are both passionate and supportive, but only conditionally. They both want to see their sons excel at sports instead of other skills of their choice.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER AND THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: Angel and Stefan both come from a dark past. They want to protect their lover from their darkness and want to start fresh.
TWILIGHT AND THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: Edward and Stefan are both hundreds of years old, and both are lowkey, talk-less kind of characters. Moreover, they both fall for the new girl and are scared of hurting her.
THE O.C AND TEEN WOLF: Seth and Stiles are side characters, the loyal best friends of the protagonists who are problematic. They are also into the same type of girl since they were kids. However, their nerdy characters haven’t helped their love story.
PARKS AND RECREATION AND TED LASSO: Leslie and Ted are both responsible bosses who deeply care for their employees and have professionally dealt with similar kinds of people.
TED LASSO AND TEEN WOLF: Roy and Derek are both mentors who seem harsh from the exterior but are emotional.
FRIENDS AND PARKS AND RECREATION: Joey and Andy are an obvious parallel. We know you see the similarity in their mental age, don’t you?
FRIENDS AND LEGEND OF KORRA: Joey and Brolin? Same reason, same traits.
THE GOOD PLACE AND PARKS AND RECREATION: Jason and Andy. No?
ONE TREE HILL AND THE O.C: Brook and Summer started their journey as spoilt characters; however, both saw a transformation that made them kind and loving.
THE MCU MOVIES: Tony Stark and Doctor Strange. They are both rich and kind of egoistic. However, their journeys have made them more empathetic.
MODERN FAMILY AND SCHITT’S CREEK: Haley and Alexis were low-key spoilt, and running behind boys, only to later transform into independent, strong women.
