* {{Deuteragonist}}: Dr. Mallick is essentially the hero of the second plot. Mallick spends the movie working to save a damaged soul from the monster he has inside of him, and thus save him from the death sentence that monster earned for him. In a way, he's the hero of the whole film since, [[spoiler: in essence, he's also trying to save all the characters in the central plot, who are all aspects of his patient's fractured psyche. He actually manages to positively influence the more moral identities against the homicidal one. [[AllForNothing Not that it does him much good.]]]]

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Paris Nevada is guilty of this trope twice. 1) she opened her bag made her apparels scattered to the road, one of them her high heeled shoe which destroys one of the York's tire. 2) Her car crashed onto telephone lines' pole. [[spoiler: Of course, both of them won't give damages as it would have been given the [[EveryoneIsTomato story twist]] but at least Mrs. York won't be weakened very seriously.]]

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Malcolm Rivers. The horribly abusive childhood he endured and the subsequent trauma he lived with resulted in [[spoiler: him developing multiple personalties. At least three of these personalities are coldblooded killers. Robert Maine is clearly a deranged maniac. Samuel Rhodes is a short-tempered, self-serving criminal who has no qualms with murder but is at least capable of behaving around others. But the worst by far is Timothy York, a BitchInSheepsClothing CreepyChild SerialKiller and the personification of Malcolm's deep-seated rage. By the end, the violent, relentless and unforgiving presence of his mistreated inner child is all that's left of Malcolm Rivers.]]

Meanwhile, ten strangers arrive by chance at a motel run by the manager Larry Washington in the middle of the Nevada desert, each with their own agendas. The ten strangers are limo driver Ed Dakota (Cusack), who's chauffeuring '80s TV star Caroline Suzanne (Rebecca De Mornay); Samuel Rhodes (Liotta), a cop transporting convict Robert Maine (Jake Busey); Las Vegas prostitute Paris Nevada (Amanda Peet); newlyweds Lou and Ginny Isiana (William Scott and Clea Duvall); and the York family, George (John C. [=McGinley=]), Alice (Leila Kenzle), and Timmy (Bret Loehr). When bodies begin to pile up one by one with little explanation, the survivors must discover what connects them in order to save themselves from their fate.

''Identity'' is a 2003 psychological thriller starring Creator/JohnCusack, Amanda Peet and Ray Liotta.

Malcolm Rivers is a psychotic killer awaiting execution for the grisly murders that took place at a motel. His psychiatrist Dr. Mallick finds a new piece of evidence: a journal that may explain what actually happened that night and could exonerate Malcolm of the murders. With this evidence in hand, a new hearing takes place in which Dr. Mallick must persuade the Judge to spare Malcolm.

Meanwhile, 10 strangers arrive by chance at a motel run by the manager Larry Washington in the middle of the Nevada desert, each with their own agendas. The ten strangers are a limo driver (Ed Dakota) chauffeuring an 80s TV star (Caroline Suzanne), a cop (Officer Samuel Rhodes) transporting a convict (Robert Maine), a prostitute (Paris Nevada), a pair of newlyweds (Lou and Ginny Isiana), and a family (George, Alice and Timmy York). When bodies begin to pile up one by one with little explanation, the survivors must discover what connects them in order to save themselves from their fate.
