Anime Characters Who Look Alike

Who are your favorite anime pairs who look so alike? Are these pairs and trios among them? :)


Kojima Genta and Takeshi Goda


At the bottom of our list are none other than Genta-kun (Detective Conan) and Gian (Doraemon). Aside from being chubby and dark-skinned, they both are uhmmmmm, kind of slow on the uptake. In case you haven't noticed either, their set of friends kinda resemble each other too! Suneo and Mitsuhiko are a little alike as well as Shizuka and Ayumi. However, I wouldn't dare compare that dimwit Nobita to Conan. But if I were a kid and the three of us are the last three people on this earth, I think I'd rather play with Genta-kun who is at least a gentleman rather than with the bully "Gian."


Kanata Saionji and Li Syaoran


Now at rank 11, may I present to you my childhood sweethearts - Kanata (Daa! Daa! Daa!) and Li Syaroan (Cardcaptor Sakura)! Their resemblance is really really undeniable - from their hair style and hair color, the color of their eyes, almost everything, except that Li Syaoran has thicker eyebrows. However, if Kami-sama will give me a chance to become Sakura (Li Syaoran's partner) or Miyu (Kanata's partner) for a day... (hmmm, that's a tough one) I think I'd rather be Miyu for three reasons. First, Kanata is not very showy of his feelings towards Miyu but everyone knows he really cares for her and that really turns me on. Second, his thin eyebrows make him look more handsome than Li, and lastly, he looks more mature <3


Hanamichi Sakuragi and Kazuma Kuwabara


And for rank 10, here goes Kazuma Kuwabara (YuYu Hakusho) and Hanamichi Sakuragi (Slam Dunk)! I think the both of them deserve a spot on this list because the hair - both style and color - says it all! In addition, they both look like your typical anime delinquents one may even mistake them as Yankumi's (Gokusen's main character) students. When I was a kid, I saw a Slam Dunk poster and even thought that Sakuragi was Kazuma! When I found out that they were two different characters, I immediately watched Slam Dunk. But if I were two choose between the two, I'd definitely go for Sakuragi because of his sense of humor. I also think he looks way way better than Kazuma, don't you think so too?


Inoue Orihime - Bleach


Shirley Fenette - Code Geass


For rank 9, I present to you Inoue Orihime (Bleach) and Shirley Fenette (Code Geass)! I think their only similarities are their hair color and hair length (Inoue's orange hair is even darker) and they do not exactly look alike but if their souls were to materialize, I'm sure as hell they'd look exactly like twins. If it is possible to measure one person's love for another, I'd bet a finger Inoue's love for Ichigo and Shirley's love for Lelouch would be equal up to the last decimal. To add to that, funny how both the people they love truly care for them, albeit not in the same romantic sense. I also think that these two girls are among the loneliest anime characters ever. If you're still not convinced that they deserve to be on this list then look at the the words these two girls are saying, I'm telling you they have twin souls!!!

"I love you, Lelou. Even when I knew you killed my father... I couldn't bring my self to hate you. Even when you tried to make me forget everything... I still fell in love with you again. Even when my memories were altered... I still fell in love with you again. No matter how many times I am reborn, I'm sure I'll fall in love with you again, Lelou. This is fate... right? So it's okay, right, Lelou? That I fall in love with you when I'm reborn? No matter how many times... I'll fall in love... with you." -Shirley Fenette to Lelouch Lamperouge, Code Geass R2, E13

"Kurosaki-kun, you know I had a lot of things I wanted to do... I want to be a teacher... I also want to be an astronaut... and also make my own cake shop... I want to go to the sweets bakery and say 'I want one of everything'... I wish I could have five lives! Then I could have been born in five different towns, and eaten five lifetime's worth of food, and had five different careers, and... fallen in love with the same person, five times." -Inoue Orihime to Ichigo Kurosaki, Bleach, E141

Ikuto Tsukiyomi and Daemon Spade

As you've probably noticed by now, it's really the hair style that matters to be on this list. Thus Daemon Spade from Katekyo Hitman Reborn and Ikuto Tsukiyomi from Shugo Chara bested five other characters to grab rank number 8. I sometimes feel like they planned this out thoroughly, they probably met some time in the past and agreed to cut their hair in the same fashion as well as to dye their hair with the same color, all for the purpose of being on this list. They even went so far as agreeing to both play villain roles just to ensure a spot on this hub! Won't you agree that their plan was quite successful?


Maes Hughes and Isshin Kurosaki


For spot number 7, I bring you - Maes Hughes (Fullmetal Alchemist) and Isshin Kurosaki (Bleach)! These two father figures look so alike, the only reason why they only ranked seventh is because Maes wore glasses and because Isshin did not wear them. However, more than their hair style and beard style, their love for their family made them resemble each other more. While Maes went around showing pictures of his lovely daughter to everyone, Isshin even hung a huge poster of his wife at home. Showy fathers aren't they? I just couldn't drop them off this list!


Berubo and Roronoa Zoro


I just told you didn't I? IT'S THE HAIR COLOR AND HAIR STYLE. I am now very sure of how Berubo (Beelzebub) would look like in the future. He just needs a little tan and a little work out. There is actually a meme of this circulating somewhere but I couldn't find it anymore. And for those of you who are still looking for Roronoa Zoro's (One Piece) baby pictures, just go download this one, okay? And I don't wanna argue with anyone anymore why these two lovely men deserved the 6th spot, okay?


Yoshida Haru and Lambo


Now for the 5th spot, here goes Yoshida Haru (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) and the adult Lambo (Katekyo Hitman Reborn)! They look like twins don't they? Although I still think that Haru is more handsome by a hair. To add to that they are both careferee, unconcerned and sometimes just plain irresponsible. We would have to thank Shizuku for the slight character development of Haru, and the future Tsuna for Lambo's.

By the way it's not just their hairstyle. They both really look alike. In fact I could've given them a higher ranking, if only Lambo would open his other eye.


Kazehaya Shota and Soichiro Arima


For spot number four, can you still distinguish between the two? First I would like apologize for not being able to find a decent photo of Soicihiro (Kare Kano/His & Her Circumstances). That's the only one I could find and I just couldn't crop Yukino out of the picture because they look really good together (however I didn't have a problem looking for pictures of Kazehaya - Kimi ni Todoke :D). If you've seen both anime, you'd definitely agree that they don't just look alike, their attitudes are somewhat alike too. They are quite persistent and they were the ones who made their first moves just so Sawako and Yukino would notice them. At the same time, both our guys are respected, idolized and loved not just by girls but also by boys in the campus. You could say that they are the role-model types or probably just plain likable, but in reality both boys are telling their girls that they are not who they think they are, that there is something deeper or darker inside their "real" selves that they are not proud of. But who cares, everybody loves Kazehaya and Soichiro! :)


Ciel Phantomhive, Echizen Ryoma, Natsume Hyuuga


For rank number three, I present these cold, loner, and kind of reserved boys who all look alike and act alike. Again, aside from the hair style and hair color, we have three arrogant boys here, the first one who is just plain arrogant (Natsume - Gakuen Alice), another who is arrogant because he has a demon by his side (Ciel - Kuroshitsuji) and the last one who is just plain arrogant of his tennis skills (Ryoma - Prince of Tennis). While the last two boys are very goal-oriented, Natsume on the other hand was kind of sidetracked by his love for Mikan. But again if I get the chance to choose among these boys, I'd go for the one with a bright future (in the tennis world), Echizen Ryoma!


Wrath, Giriko Kutsuzawa, Alaindelon


For the second rank, we have three very big anime characters who look alike! I'm not sure if you will agree with me on this one but it must have been the mustache and the eye patch. I'll introduce the three first. First is Wrath or King Bradley from Fullmetal Alchemist, then we have the fullbringer Giriko Kutsuzawa from Bleach, and lastly Alaindelon from Beelzebub. The resemblance is most noticeable for Wrath and Giriko, and then for Giriko and Alaindelon. Even I have to admit that Wrath and Alaindelon do not resemble each other at all. However, the eye patch, the stern look, the cold vibes and the arrogance, all worn by Wrath and Giriko are enough to make them look like brothers. As for Giriko and Alaindelon, it's just the thick mustache, no more, no less.


Ishida Uryuu and Sebastian Michaelis


And now, the two anime characters that really, truly, and really really resemble each other are Ishida Uryuu (Bleach) and Sebastian Michaelis (Kuroshitsuji)!!! I don't think I have to defend this two like I did the other pairs and trios. Even if Ishida wears white clothes and Sebastian wears black cothes, it wouldn't make their ranking go any lower. The very existence of this photo is enough proof that these two are the anime characters who really, truly, and really really resemble each other! Congratulations Ishida and Sebastian! :D

Vote for the best pair/trio!

How have I never noticed how alike Ishida and Sebastian are? It's uncanny! Fun hub, thanks.

Ayu (author) from Sorajima on May 07, 2013:

Thanks! This is actually the first time I tried this, thought it would improve the readers' experience. I'm glad you liked it. For the number cards, I just used a free online photo editing site and played around with it :)

KuroiHadou on May 07, 2013:

I love the presentation of this hub. The graphics and screenshots were what I noticed even more than the written text. If you don't mind my asking, how did you make the number cards?

Xeng from Philippines on May 04, 2013:

agree with number 6! They are just both so adorbssss. :) Great hub!

Ayu (author) from Sorajima on May 04, 2013:

I agree, they made it so big it sucks. But I just love her, she just acts like a child but I her character has really matured.

And yeah, number 6 is supposed to make people lol. Thanks!

Will English on May 04, 2013:

I'd like Orihime better if her boobs weren't bigger than my head (call me werid but girls with unnaturally large chests just freak me out). Good list though. Heh heh I lol'ed at number 6.
