Fictional Characters Who Came Face to Face with their Double [Random Pop Culture Top…something] – Part Two

A little while ago I wrote about Fictional Twins (see here) and that got me thinking about all those other instances that were kind of like twins, but not really. And that’s led to this post, which is about all the different reasons that I can think of that characters in fiction run into apparent duplicates of themselves, and some of my favorite examples of each!

So the list here isn’t a countdown exactly–it’s in more of an intuitive order or each category, rather than a “worst to best” order of the specific examples. Each entry on the list is a reason why characters have exact doubles out there for them to run into (and there are a lot of reasons, it turns out), accompanied by a notable example for that reason.

To be clear, we’re not just talking about stories where doubles of characters exist, but specifically where characters come face to face with (it would seem)…themselves.

Fictional Twins [Random Pop Culture Top…Twelve]

Welcome to a Random Pop Culture Top 10! Though in this case, it’s a Top 12. But to be honest, it’s not really a Top anything. More of a Random Twelve–twelve examples that came to mind, listed in my ascending order of preference. Indeed, one of them especially is pretty bad–a strong contender for a “Bottom 12” list.

In any case, the topic today is Twins in Fiction.

2021 – Things I Enjoyed (to some degree)

Yesterday I listed a bunch of things about 2022 that I’m looking forward to–“shallow” things if you will, such as movies and TV shows.

Not wanting 2021 to feel left out, now we’ll also list similarly shallow things that the year gave us that I watched and mostly enjoyed. Twenty-one things specifically, in a rough countdown style…

There may be a few spoilers here if there are things you haven’t seen yet.
