List of Petpets that closely resemble Neopets!
If you’ve been on Neopets for any amount of time, you’ve probably noticed that Petpets sometimes look like their bigger counterparts, Neopets. Always the best companions for Neopets, Petpets can be given to Neopets to take care of. Like Neopets, they can also be named, trained in levels, battled in their own Battledome Arena, and painted! There are also activities that only Petpets can participate in, including Grave Danger in Neovia, Symol Hole in Meridell, and waking up the massive Turmaculus (although I’ve heard Turmy has an appetite for Petpets sometimes!).
Many people like to match their Neopets and Petpets but sometimes, the resemblance is too uncanny. This is a list of Petpets that look the most similar to every single Neopet! You can use this as a guide to picking a Petpet for your pet, or just to marvel at how Neopian nature works sometimes.
This list is based on unpainted pets and Petpets, as some ~magical~ brushes can change the entire look of a Neopet or Petpet!
Acara – Miamouse
These two both have big ears, but that doesn’t mean they’re trying to listen in on your conversation.
Aisha – Alkenore
This "A"-team both have two pairs of ears, one stumpy and one long.
Blumaroo – Baby Blu
As the name might suggest, the Baby Blu looks just like a baby blue Blumaroo!
Bori – Antwerph
Both have long tails and short ears, but never accuse a Bori of eating ants.
Bruce – Pirakeet
These two both have wings but it doesn’t look like either of them can fly…
Buzz – Buzzer
The Buzzer looks like a little, plump version of its Neopet counterpart.
Chomby – Sauropod
These Tyrannian natives both have long necks that help them reach yummy leaves.
Cybunny – Eizzil
These two look like the perfect pair for Easter, or for magically pulling out of a hat!
Draik – Ukali
The Ukali looks like a constantly sad Draik, but Draiks are quite happy unless painted grey.
Elephante – Ettaphant
If you can face (get it) the fact that the Ettaphant has two heads, these two are very similar!

The Eyrie and the Albat look to be from the same Neo-family, and the Maraquan versions are exactly the same too!

These two are both beautiful horned sea creatures! They would make a great pair.
Gelert – Puppyblew
The Puppyblew looks like the puppy version of a full-grown Gelert.

These two prehistoric rexes look identical in everything but size and they both hail from Tyrannia.

These two slithering creatures both have lined underbellies.
Ixi – Zebie
In addition to looking alike, the Ixi and the Zebie are both from Meridell.

Korbat – Barbat
Both are batty, with wings and pointy ears to boot.
Kougra – Biyako
These two little tigers have stripes all along their fur.

Both Kyrii and Juma have large, signature tails.
Lenny – Djuti
These two winged pets both have hooked beaks.

Shoyru – Dragoyle
These two share so many characteristics, especially the large wings.

This pair would enjoy eating together (and discussing the benefits of having wings that don’t work, the main benefit would be to look cute while asking for more food!).
Techo – Gikerot
Techoes and Gikerots look like they would get along just fine.

Both these "U"-names have long fluffy tails.
Vandagyre – Whoot
The newest Neopet Vandagyre and the Whoot are two birds are of a feather and should flock together!
Wocky – Meowclops
If you can look past Meowclops’ one eye, you can see that the two look eerily similar. (Three puns in this description, sorry about that!)
Xweetok – Dandan
The ever popular Xweetok has a doppelganger that also has a long cuddly tail.
Yurble – Schmoonie
These two are both known for their manes, albeit they are a little prickly, so be careful when petting them.
