Possible example

Lily Briscoe and Mrs. Ramsay in Woolf's To the Lighthouse may be doppelgangers. Both are depicted as possible partners for Mr. Ramsay. In addition, both are called on to sympathize with him. Lily, in some ways, takes over for Mrs. Ramsay after her death.

The Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries doppelgänger history and their futures:

Doppelgängers may look alike, but they do not have the same intention as shown throughout the Vampire Diaries. The first known Petrova doppelgänger was named Tatia who Niklaus and Elijah Mikaelson both loved. They later found out that Tatia (tenth century) was seeing both of them. The next three doppelgängers were Katerina Petrova (fifteenth century), an unknown doppelgänger (nineteenth century), and Elena Gilbert (twentieth century). Amara and Silas (first century) were the first immortal beings. After Silas, their were two unknown doppelgängers of him (in the tenth and fifteenth century). Then Stefan Salvatore (nineteenth century) and Tom Avery (twentieth century) came along. Qetsiyah said that "When they drank the immortality elixir, they violated the natural law that all living things must die, so Nature found a balance by creating mortal shadow selves” (in the episode, Original Sin). This was the reason their were so many doppelgängers after Amara and Silas. Klaus (short for Niklaus) and his siblings Elijah, Finn, Rebekah, and Kol Mikaelson are "The Original Family" of vampire. They were all forcefully turned into vampires by the mother Esther (a witch) and father Mikael because they loved their children so much they didn't want to lose them like their youngest son Henrik did from being killed by werewolves. Klaus is also the Originals half-brother because his mother had an affair with a werewolf meaning Klaus was a hybrid (half werewolf, half vampire) after becoming a "vampire". His mother and father later regretted turning them into these "monsters" but couldn't change what they had done. And Esther put a "spell" on Klaus to prevent him from being a hybrid and becoming even more monstrous then he already is. Rebekah said "It was euphoric. The feeling of power was indescribable, but the witch Ayana was right about the consequences. The Spirits turned on us and Nature fought back. For every strength there would be a weakness. The sun became our enemy, it kept us indoors for weeks. And though my mother found a solution, there were other problems. Neighbors who had opened their homes to us could now keep us out. The flowers at the base of the white oak burned and prevented compulsion. And the spell decreed that the tree that gave us life could also take it away...so we burned it to the ground. But the darkest consequence was something my parents never anticipated - the hunger. Blood had made us reborn and it was blood that we craved above all else. We could not control it. And with that, the predatory species was born". Ironically, in order to turn the Mikaelson's children into vampires, Mikael used Tatia's (Petrova doppelgänger) blood to do this. Klaus (who craves power) wants to become a hybrid and goes off to find a Petrova doppelgänger because this is the only was for him to become a hybrid (using Petrova doppelgänger blood which originally turned him. This is where he meets Katerina Petrova (also known as Katherine Pierce) and seduces her into thinking he likes her. She later runs off and turns herself into a vampire because she found out about this ritual that need to happen where she has to have all of her blood drained out of her and die along with a werewolf and vampire. Fast forwarding from the fifteenth century to the twentieth century), Elena Gilbert is kidnapped by Rose-Marie (who was turned by Marie Porter who was turned by Klaus) who turned Katerina. And Elijah is going to take Elena but fails due to the heroic rescue by Stefan and Damon (Stefans brother) Salvatore. In the season finale, Elena is used in the sacrifice and is later resurrected because her father/"uncle" sacrificed himself for her. Little did Klaus know that he needed Elena's human blood to make hybrids of his own, and if Elena was dead he wouldn't be able to (because Esther thought of every way possible to prevent Klaus from becoming a hybrid). Anyways, later in the season's, Elena and Stefan are the last doppelgängers alive because the rest were killed.

P.S. Sorry, this literally turned out to be a summery of practically the whole show.

Homestuck

In Andrew Hussie's webcomic Homestuck, Calliope and Caliborn are doppelgangers. They share the same body, but represent good and evil (respectively).

An Example

In the Vampire Diaries, Elena and Katherine are doppelgangers. Stephen and Silas are also doppelgangers. They appear similarly but have different intentions.

Symbolic doppelgangers

Doppelgangers don't have to be literal. Two unrelated characters can be doppelgangers because of the dichotomy the pair represents. Ex. Sullivan and Costigan from The Departed (2006).

Dorian Gray

In Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, the portrait functions as Dorian's doppelganger - revealing the decay of Dorian's soul as his appearance remains beautiful and young. It acts as a "window to the true Dorian

The Nutty Professor

The doppelganger in the Nutty Professor is Buddy Love.

Buddy Love is the doppleganger (the opposite spirit) of the Professor, being that the professor is a kind reserved gentleman while Buddy Love is the testosterone fueled man-whore.

Black Orphan

There is going to be a new show BBC called Black Orphan and it is about several Dopplergangers

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/05/2013 - 19:54
Correction

I think you mean Orphan Black. And I believe those are clones of the same person with different personalities. A doppelganger is someone that's a complete opposite of the other.

ooooh

when it's put into anime terms I understand better
;)
so can a doppleganger can be a person with a split personality? like does it have to be two different bodies, but one person?

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 02/07/2014 - 02:56
Yeah, right

Nice reflection

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 07/24/2014 - 06:22

So a doppelganger would be like my evil twin brother?

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 01/06/2013 - 06:08
Precisely

Yes it would. Just your twin brother would do too. :P

DoppelGanger

Is pretty much a copy of you in looks. They both can have the same style and feelings. But most of the times they look like you but are oppisite of you.
